  1. Social housing as infrastructure: an investment pathway

    Author(s): Julie Lawson; Hal Pawson; Laurence Troy; Ryan van den Nouwelant; Carrie Hamilton

    Description: This research modelled five alternative pathways to funding social housing and found the ‘capital grant’ model, supplemented by efficient financing, provides the most cost effective model for Australia. The research also established the current and future unmet need for social housing in different parts of Australia.

  2. Technological disruption in private housing markets: the case of Airbnb

    Author(s): Laura Crommelin; Laurence Troy; Chris Martin; Sharon Parkinson

    Description: This study looks at how short term letting (STL) platforms like Airbnb, HomeAway and Booking.com are reshaping housing opportunity in private markets. It analysed Airbnb listing data from Sydney and Melbourne to reveal insights into the extent STL is contributing to housing affordability issues and to highlight the most effective responses available to regulators.

  3. Understanding the disruptive technology ecosystem in Australian urban and housing contexts: a roadmap

    Author(s): Christopher Pettit; Edgar Liu; Ellie Rennie; Jake Goldenfein; Stephen Glackin

    Description: This research reviews different emerging digital and disruptive technologies, such as blockchain, in relation to housing, housing assistance and planning systems. While much work has been done in opening up property data assets across governments, significant work is required on data standards, privacy standards and data sharing across government, industry and the non-profit sectors.

  4. Inquiry into the future of the private rental sector

    Author(s): Kath Hulse; Sharon Parkinson; Chris Martin

    Description: This study investigated the Australian private rental sector (PRS) focusing on institutional change, including formal rules (policies and regulation); organisations and structures; and informal rules (social norms and practices). It also reviewed the PRS in ten countries: Australia, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, Spain, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the United States.

  5. 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.

    Author(s): Nicole Gurran; Steven Rowley; Vivienne Milligan; Bill Randolph; Peter Phibbs; Catherine Gilbert; Amity James; Laurence Troy; Ryan van den Nouwelant

    Description: This study examined the range of strategies and initiatives governments have used to leverage affordable housing supply across the continuum of housing needs (i.e. from social housing to affordable rental and home ownership) in a constrained funding and increasingly market driven context across a range of different jurisdictions and markets.

  8. 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.

  9. Asset portfolio retirement decisions: the role of the tax and transfer system

    Author(s): Stephen Whelan; Kadir Atalay; Lachlan Dynan

    Description: This study examined how Australia’s tax and transfer system, especially in relation to the Age Pension, impacts on household retirement choices. As the population ages, fiscal challenges created when many individuals retire from working and paying tax to drawing government funded benefits and services present some stark policy choices. Understanding how retirement decisions are shaped by the tax and transfer system is essential to developing a system that allocates resources efficiently across the economy, is consistent with principles of equity and is sustainable. Any such tax system is likely to have important implications for housing choices and housing markets.
