  1. 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.
