The RBA confirmed today that it will be keeping the cash rate on hold at 10 basis points. The Board restated its position on keeping the rate at its current level “until actual inflation is sustainably within the 2 to 3 per cent target range [which is not expected to occur] until 2024 at the earliest”.
The RBA acknowledged that “housing markets have strengthened further, with prices rising in all major markets”. The Board also pointed out that housing credit growth has increased “with strong demand from owner-occupiers, especially first-home buyers”.
The banks have once again been put on notice that the RBA will be carefully monitoring lending standards amidst the surge in demand for real estate.
