  2. Matching markets in housing and housing assistance

    Author(s): Andrea Sharam; Martin Byford; Bilgehan Karabay; Sean McNelis; Terry Burke

    Description: This study identified five Australian housing markets that could be made more efficient using online technology to match highly specific ‘buyers’ and ‘sellers’. The five markets considered are: swaps in public housing; disability accessible housing; low-cost private rental housing brokerage; apartment presales for low/mid income earners; and precinct-level urban redevelopment. The research also proposed solutions to how the matching markets could best operate.

  3. Inquiry into social impact investment for housing and homelessness outcomes

    Author(s): Kristy Muir; Fabienne Michaux; Andrea Sharam; Paul Flatau; Ariella Meltzer; Michael Moran; Richard Heaney; Gill North; Suzanne Findlay; Eileen Webb; Chris Mason; Wendy Stone; Libby Ward-Christie; Kaylene Zaretzky; Ioana Ramia

    Description: This research investigated Social impact investment (SII), which aims to generate and actively measure social and financial returns. There are several promising SII models—including housing supply bonds, property funds, funding social enterprises, social impact bonds and social impact loans. Effective SII requires suppliers of goods and services, intermediaries, suppliers of capital, government and beneficiaries to work together.

  4. Understanding opportunities for social impact investment in the development of affordable housing

    Author(s): Andrea Sharam; Michael Moran; Chris Mason; Wendy Stone; Suzanne Findlay

    Description: This research examined social impact investment (SII) in social and affordable housing in Australia. It considered US and UK models, together with interviews with government experts, social impact investors and not-for-profit housing providers, to inform the analysis. In Australia, the funding gap between tenants’ capacity to pay and the cost of providing housing is the most significant barrier to SII.

  5. Addressing concentrations of disadvantage—Springvale case study report

    Author(s): Andrea Sharam; Wendy Stone

    Description: The case study work was undertaken as part of a larger project looking into concentrations of disadvantage in Australia’s major capital cities—Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. The main objectives of the case study work were to better understand the experience of living in a ‘disadvantaged area’, to explore the pros and cons of their local area from the resident perspective and to investigate the role that housing, planning and associated interventions may play in either exacerbating or tackling local problems.

  6. Housing assistance need and provision in Australia: a household-based policy analysis

    Author(s): Wendy Stone; Sharon Parkinson; Andrea Sharam; Liss Ralston

    Description: This research recommends that housing assistance be provided under a tenure-neutral model. Currently households with similar needs receive fundamentally different levels and types of housing assistance depending on their housing tenure (i.e. owner, private renter, in social housing etc.) rather than needs.

  7. Accessing and sustaining private rental tenancies: critical life events, housing shocks and insurances

    Author(s): Wendy Stone; Andrea Sharam; Ilan Wiesel; Liss Ralston; Sanna Markkanen; Amity James

    Description: This report presents findings from an AHURI study on sustaining private rental tenancies. The study looked at whether targeted or integrated housing support for low to moderate-income private rental tenants at key transition points was likely to enhance their capacity to sustain tenancies and deter entry or re-entry to social housing or homelessness.
