  • RBA cuts rates Formula 1 Finance
    the cash rate 25 basis points to 3 50 per cent The latest index data showed capital city home values fell by 1 4 per cent over the month of May which is a factor the Reserve Bank would have been conscious of when deliberating their interest rate setting Such a significant fall over a single month was unexpected considering the cash rate was slashed by 50 basis points in the same month Not only did home values fall further in May but we also saw consumer sentiment remain fairly steady suggesting the May rate cut has had little effect in stimulating consumer confidence and spending The rate cut today will provide a further boost to housing affordability which the RBA has recently suggested is back around levels not seen since 2002 The big question now is how much of the rate cut will be passed on by the banks privately and whether this will be enough to provide a shot in the arm for the housing market Brett Colley 365 Posts Brett has been involved in management in the finance industry for over 13 years Brett s diverse experience in finance real estate developments and all facets of the construction industry confirms Formula 1 Finance to be an innovative professional finance broking firm On June 5 2012 Enconomy Finance News Financial goals Inflation Interest rate Wealth Comments Off Comments are closed Finance News RBA rate announcement Banks Mining Towns and Rental Yields Houses outperform units in capitals Positive return for Qld market Whats happening with Vacant Land Sales Credit conditions restricting construction Housing Values Rise Housing Facts Rates on Hold New home sales at 2 year high Categories Australian Dollar Bank fees Bank Profits Budget Enconomy Finance News Financial goals First Home Buyer Government banking reform Home loan product
