September 2017 Australian Interest Rates Remain Stable

Today’s October meeting of the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) has announced to keep the cash rate on hold at 1.5%.

While the economists keep changing their mind on the economic future of the country, one this is for certain is that banks are forced to make lending for difficult for borrowers that seek interest only loans and property investment loans . We have seen in the last few months that interest rates have risen and the amount you can borrow against the property has reduced from 80 to 90 percent depending on the lender.

Banks and other lenders are continually reviewing their variable and fixed interest rates and we will keep you updated on any changes that may occur in the next month.

August Interest Rates Stable at 1.50%

 

It looks like interest rates are likely to remain stable for the remainder of 2017 as the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) has announced to keep the cash rate on hold at 1.50%.

It seems the major banks and other lenders have ended their interest rate increases for  interest only loans and property investment loans in a effort to reduce the number of these loans on their books.

In the 1st July many states have changed their stamp duty fees and first home buyers grants. You can calculate the cost of state charges and first home buyers concessions by using our stamp duty calculator.

Major banks and other lenders are continually reviewing their variable and fixed interest rates and we will keep you updated on any changes that may occur in the next month.

RBA Leaves Interest Rates at 1.50%

Today’s 2nd May meeting of the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) has announced to keep the cash rate on hold at 1.5%. It seems interest rates are likely to remain stable for a little while yet.

We expect variable rates to increase for interest only loans and property investment loans through out the year as APRA would like to see this type of lending reduced to 30%.

Banks and other lenders are continually reviewing their variable and fixed interest rates and we will keep you updated on any changes that may occur in the next month.

Rates Unchanged at 1.50%

 

Today’s April 4th meeting of the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) has announced to keep the cash rate on hold at 1.5%. We expect this to remain stable for the remainder of the year.

In the last months we have seen a number of lenders increasing some of their variable rate products. Although owners saw very little movement, we saw up to 0.25% increases for interest only loans and property investment loans. This is an attempt to slow down the housing boom by making it more expensive for property investors to make future purchases.

Banks and other lenders are continually reviewing their variable and fixed interest rates and we will keep you updated on any changes that may occur in the next month.
