Interest Rate Announcement – March 2019
INTEREST RATE UPDATE – MARCH 2019
The RBA has decided to leave the official cash rate unchanged at 1.5% for the 28th consecutive time and I’d like to share some thoughts on why the Reserve Bank of Australia has made this decision.
Following its February meeting, the RBA said the case for the next rate move to be a decrease was now almost equal to the case for an increase and that it would continue to watch the economy closely for signs around its key objectives of decreasing unemployment and increasing inflation. It will also be watching property markets, particularly in Sydney and Melbourne, very closely as prices continue to fall.
With lenders continuing to review rates independently of the RBA, it is important to review your lending options regularly to ensure they remain the most suitable for your situation. There may be different rates available from our wide panel of lenders and I’m always available to ensure you have the right financial solution for your current and future circumstances
