Planning ahead: RBA says expect long-term low interest rates

Posted 3 weeks ago

Good news for mortgage holders this week, with the RBA saying “it’s reasonable to expect an extended period of low interest rates”.

Figures released on Wednesday show that core inflation, the RBA’s preferred measure, is currently at 1.4%.

However, Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) Governor Philip Lowe says it is highly unlikely the RBA will contemplate higher interest rates until it’s confident that inflation has returned to 2-3%.

“Whether or not further monetary easing (aka further rate cuts) is needed, it is reasonable to expect an extended period of low interest rates,” he said in a speech.

“On current projections, it will be some time before inflation is comfortably back within the target range.”

Will the RBA cut rates further this month?

The RBA will meet again on Tuesday, however it’s appearing increasingly unlikely that it will cut rates for a third consecutive month.

That’s because June quarter inflation figures released on Wednesday narrowly beat out the market’s expectations (+0.5.%) with a rise to 0.6%.

As a result, most experts are predicting that will be enough to postpone a third RBA rate cut to 0.75%, but not enough to prevent it from happening between now and the end of the year.

I was referred to Kathy Dundas of No Fuss Home Loans with the daunting prospect of refinancing my existing home loan and other debts into one simple monthly package that is actually saving me big $$$$. From first contact Kathy was so incredibly welcoming, professional, knowledgeable and thorough I immediately knew I was in the hands of someone I could trust.

Kathy introduced to me options and solutions that I not only never knew were available, but possible for me. I wish I had spoken to her sooner!!

Kathy made the whole process quick and seamless and even went out of her way to come to me around my working commitments. Kathy has inspired me on many levels to continue with my dream of investing further not only in the property market but possibly in other ventures with confidence and the sound knowledge that her advice, honestly and support as an advisor will get me there sooner than I ever thought !!

I highly recommend Kathy Dundas to anyone looking to unlock the dream of home ownership, refinancing and investment.

Thank you again Kathy and No Fuss Home Loans – it was exactly that!!

Choosing the right home loan can be a harrowing and difficult process, No Fuss Home Loans produced a slick and efficient solution to my fiscal needs in a very short time frame. The quality of the advice was excellent and transparent and favoured my situation as opposed to gaining the maximum return for No Fuss. I was so impressed that I have referred Kathy at every opportunity to friends and colleagues in need of advice. The most important factor for me was the after sales service where Kathy went above and beyond to secure the facets of the deal offered at the start. I always felt I was in capable hands who genuinely took my business seriously, a very admirable trait.
