Today the RBA met for the first time in 2021 and have decided to leave the cash rate unchanged at 0.10%.
Our central bank will have been encouraged by recent better than expected unemployment and CPI numbers. It will also be keeping a close eye on rising house prices, lending growth, the continued impact of COVID-19 on our major trading partners, the Australian dollar and its effect on exporters and the looming reduction to government support packages.
Rates are at a record low and lenders continue to offer very competitive rates. We can answer your questions and look at your circumstances to make sure you’re prepared for what could be coming next. This could mean refinancing or approaching your lender for a better rate. Because we do this type of work every day, we have a pretty good idea what lenders can do to win or keep your business.
We’re here to help if you have any questions or wish to review your circumstances. Please don’t hesitate to give us a call.
