Home building approvals slip despite uptrend
By Darryl Daté-Shappard - October 7, 2013
Just last month, the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) released building approvals figures for July, showing a 10.8% seasonally adjusted rise, another sign that the housing market might finally have some legs under its recovery.

Yet like the old saying, “a month does not a trend make”, August saw the data slip down 4.7% on seasonally adjusted estimates. Monthly changes can be volatile, so longer time period trends are needed to get a better view.
