Well, they’ve done it again! On Tuesday, the Reserve Bank of Australia dropped the cash rate by another 0.25%. Following June’s cut of 0.25%, the Australian cash rate now sits at a historical low of 1.00%.

Aussies could save $1,200, or more, over the next 12 months

Many of Australia's banks and lenders have already passed on the cut and reduced their home loan interest rates. These recent cuts, if applied directly and in full, could save the average Australian with a $380,000 home loan, an incremental $1,200^ in interest per year.

Background: What is the RBA cash rate update?

On the first Tuesday of every month (except in January), the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) sets the cash rate. They decide whether to raise it, lower it or leave it the same, depending on a number of factors, including the performance of the Australian dollar, the state of the housing market and inflation.

The last time the cash rate rose was in November 2010. Since then, the general trend has been for the rate to remain the same, decreasing only every so often. Prior to June 4 2019, The last decrease was in August 2016.
