RBA rate cut hot off the press!

ByPaul Nees
As was broadly expected, at today’s RBA meeting interest rates have been cut by 0.25%, bringing interest rates to a historic low of 1.25%. This is positive for real estate and also the broader economy which is in much need of a boost.
Expectation is that banks will pass a significant portion of the rate cut to customers, improving home affordability.
The cut completes the trifecta of ‘good news’ in the past month, with a stable government eliminating the risk of negative gearing changes and capital gains tax changes coupled with a APRA loosening lending criteria.
All of this signals a turning point in today’s market, our expectation is for an improvement in sentiment and property prices through the remainder of this year.
