Filtering as a source of low-income housing in Australia: conceptualisation and testing

Christian Nygaard, Ryan van den Nouwelant, Stephen Glackin, Chris Martin, Alistair Sisson

This study investigated how filtering contributes to market-provided low-income housing in Australia. It critiques the conceptualisation of filtering as a source of housing for low-income households, tests for the presence of filtering dynamics in housing markets (using Melbourne and Sydney as case studies) and considers policy options for enhancing (if so desired) filtering as a policy tool.

Understanding how policy settings affect developer decisions

Steven Rowley, Chris Leishman, Oluwole Olatunji, Jian Zuo, Adam Crowe

This research examined how policy settings and new construction technologies and processes affect developer decisions to provide private sector housing supply and might improve affordability. The complexity of the development process, the structure of development organisations, the variety of products delivered, and land ownership issues mean the development decision-making process varies by organisation and site by site. Therefore, it is too simplistic to assume policy settings will have exactly the same impact on each and every developer and on each and every site.
