  5. 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.

  10. Navigating a changing private rental sector: opportunities and challenges for low-income renters

    Author(s): Sharon Parkinson; Amity James; Edgar Liu

    Description: This study investigated how low-income renters navigate the private rental sector (PRS) via three core pathways: the formal (via traditional or mainstream real estate agent intermediaries), informal (direct to rooms and dwellings privately managed by landlords and sub-landlords) and supported pathways (via community housing agencies). It provides practitioners and policy makers with an evidence base on changing practices and ways forward in shaping equitable PRS institutions.
