Statement by Glenn Stevens, Governor: Monetary Policy Decision

Posted by Katrina Parrington on August 2, 2011

At its meeting today, the Board decided to leave the cash rate unchanged at 4.75 per cent.

The global economy is continuing its expansion, but the pace of growth slowed in the June quarter. The supply-chain disruptions from the Japanese earthquake and the dampening effects of high commodity prices on income and spending in major countries both contributed to the slowing. It is still not clear how persistent this slower growth will be. The supply-chain disruptions are now gradually abating and commodity prices have softened of late, though they generally remain high. In China most indications suggest only a mild slowdown so far. Read the rest of this entry »

Take 10 years off your mortgage?

Posted by Katrina Parrington on July 25, 2011

WOULD you like to shave 10 years off your mortgage? How much interest could this save you?
It’s not rocket science, it’s simply a matter of making more repayments more often and making sure you’ve got the best mortgage for your situation. Of the millions of homeowners, only some are getting out from under mortgage payments years, sometimes decades, before their neighbours.
How?
They make an effort to pay off their mortgage early.
The average home loan is now about $300,000, but living mortgage-free is not a pipe dream.
You may only need to find an extra $200-$500 every month so that you can exceed your mortgage payments. While many think they can’t afford that, you’d be amazed at how much money you can save on a monthly basis. Read the rest of this entry »

Borrowing Within Your Means

Posted by Katrina Parrington on May 31, 2011

While your lender will give you a maximum borrowing amount, it is essential that you determine your own borrowing capacity when searching for your new home

The choices you make when taking out a mortgage have long lasting implications – so you need to approach borrowing with a healthy attitude.

How much you can borrow and how much you should borrow are two very different things. While your lender should not let you borrow more than you can afford, ultimately the choice is yours – so be careful not to over commit yourself. Read the rest of this entry »

Warning as home and rates could yet take a tumble

Posted by Katrina Parrington on May 13, 2010

  • By John Rolfe – Daily Telegraph 

PROPERTY prices and official interest rates might not rise much more this year, due to the worsening crisis in Europe.

Indeed, both could fall. Chaos on the world’s forex, debt and stock markets caused economists and futures investors to revise predictions of more rate rises this year, with the ASX opening betting between traders on a rate cut next month.
