The latest housing finance data from the ABS showed that low interest rates continue to thrust Aussies towards the housing markets.
The results showed housing finance increasing by a further 1.1% in the month.
The number of dwelling commitments surged to a seasonally adjusted 52,912, representing a very strong increase over the past two years.
Meanwhile, the total value of dwelling commitments continued to head straight up - to a seasonally adjusted $26,934 million.
Once again, the presence of investors was highly evident, up 1.5% in the month, and an incredible 35% over the past year.
This is the greatest percentage increase in investment lending in a decade since the last great boom in 2003.
Notably, more of the increase in lending in the month came from refinancing than from new loans, and the level of first homebuyers remained subdued.
The data is commensurate with further gains in house prices in early 2014.
