The number of loans for the purchase of new dwellings have increased for 17 consecutive months and are now +37% y/y.
The value of those loans is up by some +33% in just the past year.
"The number of finance commitments for the purchase of new dwellings for owner occupation (trend) rose 1.4% in July 2013, following a rise of 2.1% in June 2013. This is the seventeenth consecutive rise since March 2012."
It looks to be a very positive trend to me.
