In the lead up to the federal election the RBA has again decided to leave the official cash rate unchanged at 1.5%.
Only twice before has the RBA elected to drop rates during an election campaign and on both those occasions the incumbent governing party lost the election.
Despite inflation falling below its target range of 2-3%, continued falls in house prices, concerns around rising home loan arrears levels, a borrowing squeeze in response to the Banking Royal Commission and slow wages growth, it appears that the RBA has elected to allow the federal election to run its course before intervening.
With lenders continuing to review rates independently of the RBA, it is important to review your lending options regularly to ensure that they remain the most suitable for your situation.
