Home lending eases

by Alan Thornhill

Lending for owner-occupied housing fell by 3.1 per cent in July, on seasonally adjusted figures that the bureau of statistics published today.



It said Australians borrowed $19,946 million to finance those purchases.



It said, too, that there had been a total of 55, 010 home loan commitments that month, on seasonally adjusted figures.



That was 4.2 per cent below the comparable figure for June.
