Time to buy a major household item
Australians are almost evenly split on whether now is the time to purchase major household items with a decreasing proportion of Australians, 35% (up 1ppt), saying now is a ‘good time to buy’ major household items, while 36% (up 1ppt), say now is a ‘bad time to buy’.
ANZ Head of Australian Economics, David Plank, commented:
“Continued improvement in the local news around the pandemic and talk of early tax cuts and other fiscal measures in the Budget led to a gain in consumer confidence for the fifth straight week. Consumers are still pessimistic, but confidence is at its highest level since June. Melbourne saw a sharp uptick in confidence as the removal of the curfew helped in lifting sentiment, although it is still 8.6% below the neutral level of 100. Today’s announcement on the fiscal details will heavily influence the direction of the index in the coming weekend.”
