March 2022 Quarter

Settlement highlights

Seasonal declines were recorded for the Mar-22 quarter off the back of a record Dec-21 quarter

At first glance the market seemed to show signs of weakening, however it is normal for settlement volumes to dip in the new year, as fewer properties settle in January due to the holiday period.

Settlements in the Mar-22 quarter were comparable to the same period in the prior year, with volumes remaining at historically high levels, although growth flat-lined.
