Senior Economists Predict More Rate Cuts . . .

June 6, 2019 in Insider Tips, Latest News, Rate Cuts

Many senior economists are predicting the Reserve Bank will announce a further rate reduction in the next month or 2 with a potential 3rd rate cut prior to Christmas.

 Q: Why ???

 A: They believe one rate cut will simply not be sufficient to stimulate the Australian economy to the level the RBA are seeking.

 Many banks appear to agree & are already factoring in further rate cuts by reducing their 2, 3 & 5 Year Fixed Interest Rates to new record low rates.

CONTACT US if you are considering locking part or all of your Home Loan / Investment Property Loan on a Fixed Interest Rate.

Borrowers & Home Buyers will be rejoicing the decision of the Reserve Bank Board to reduce the Official Cash Rate to a NEW RECORD LOW 1.25%.

Banks are already under pressure to pass on this rate cut in full to their customers with the Federal Treasurer Josh Frydenberg having already holding meetings with the Big 4 Banks to remind them to remain “Customer Focussed” which was a key recommendation of the recent Royal Commission.

The new government is keen to ensure this happens & senior economists agree the banks can’t afford to be stingy or else they will face a wave of borrowers seeking better offers from other banks.

 Keep an eye out for the upcoming announcements by your bank and if you are not happy … CONTACT US and we will be more than happy to negotiate with the bank on your behalf.

Banks Increase Interest Rates on Home Loans

September 4, 2018 in Insider Tips, Latest News, Rate Cuts

The Reserve Bank Board may have voted to retain the Official Cash Rate at the current 1.50% p.a. however, several banks have already increased their Variable Interest Rates, with more banks expected to announced their intention to do the same over the next few weeks.

The banks are blaming “the increasing costs of funds” however the reality is borrowers can still negotiate lower interest rates with their banks despite the bank’s belief that the majority of their customers will simply “cop it sweet”.

If your Home Loan Variable Interest Rate is currently (or soon will be) greater than 3.90% p.a. … CALL ME !!!

 Many of our clients have already taken advantage of our free advice & reduced their interest rates which has saved them $$$
