At 50,000 in the previous months, the total loss was well below the expectations of the markets. One of the main components of the survey was the number of average hourly salaries, which showed that in August salaries rose by 0.4%. As a result, the previous month's sales volume doubled, exceeding the market's expectations by .01%.

However, 66 per cent of those surveyed consider savings for a deposit to be one of the greatest problems that holds them back. Mortgages rates fell slightly last week, but not enough to strongly enhance affordability.
Mean interest rates on 30-year fixed-rate mortgage contracts with matching credit balance (USD 453,100 or less) fell to 4.81 per cent from 4.84 per cent for 20 per cent advance payment credits. As a result, treasury rates were lowered by 3 bps last week," said Joel Kan, MBA associated Vice President of Economics and Industry forecasting.
