Tasmania's real estate market is holding its strength.
The state's 1072 home loan commitments for owner occupation in January meant it had notched 31 straight months with commitments topping 1000, in Australian Bureau of Statistics trend terms estimates.
That run started in July 2016.
Before then, monthly home loan commitments had not topped 1000 since October 2009.
They dropped into the 700s early this decade.
There is also plenty of action in the home building market.
Dwelling approvals surged by 19.7 per cent, comparing January 2018 and January 2019.
They went from 244 in January 2018 to 292 in January this year in trend terms, according to the ABS.
Every other state and territory went backwards, with national approvals down by 27 per cent compared to the previous January.
State Treasury analysis showed Tasmanian dwelling approvals increased at a faster rate than national approvals for most of the period since late 2016.
The ABS found the state had 1916 dwellings approved by councils in the first seven months of the financial year.
Much of the activity was in the South, with the Clarence (287 approvals), Brighton (189), Glenorchy (106), Kingborough (155), Hobart (134) and Sorell (112) councils' planning departments having plenty of work.
Latrobe led in the North-West, with 91 approvals.
Devonport had 72 and Central Coast 60.
Launceston was also strong, with 189 approvals.
Other Northern stand-outs included Meander Valley (70) and West Tamar (78).
The total value of residential building work approved during the seven months was estimated at $602 million.
