No Change In Cash Rate Encourages Buying

By Matt Hurlston

Australia's official cash rate remains at a record low, presenting opportunities to buy real estate in Bentleigh East, Malvern East and Carnegie.

The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) made the decision to keep the cash rate at a stable 2.5 per cent, with RBA Governor Glenn Stevens issuing a statement on April 1. 

Solid expansion in housing construction is anticipated, which is ideal news for buyers looking to secure Carnegie real estate, given the by-effect of making housing more affordable. 

Australia's monetary policy is still "accommodative" according to Mr Stevens.

Opportunities for buyers

A low cash rate means lenders are still able to obtain affordable mortgage products, which is ideal news for families, couples and individuals looking to secure a loan to purchase Melbourne real estate. 

The RBA expects that the cash rate will remain low for some time, with Mr Stevens indicating stability for a while yet. 

With regards to the wider Australian economy, sustainable growth is expected. 

With interest rates remaining low, those considering purchasing property in the Victorian capital should consult an expert.
