Interest Rates on Hold

The Reserve Bank earlier this week decided to keep interest rates on hold with analysts predicting a cut later this year, potentially as early as August, or as late as November.

This is a good opportunity for mortgage holders to assess their current loan arrangements and shop around for a better rate. Banks are obviously keen to hold on to their existing customers and sometimes all it takes is a phone call for them to match or better a competitor’s rate.

If you are a buyer about to enter the market, it’s a good idea to shop around for the best mortgage deal, rather than just going with the bank you have always used for every day banking or credit cards.

A good mortgage broker can do this research for you and pick the best loan to suit your particular circumstances.
