At DMC Property Advisory, we always keep a close eye on economic developments that could impact your property investments. Recently, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) announced that they are keeping the cash rate unchanged at 4.35%. Here's what you need to know about this decision and its potential effects on the property market.


Inflation Remains a Concern

Despite the RBA's efforts, inflation remains above target and persistent. Although it has dropped since its peak in 2022, the pace of decline has slowed recently. This means that the cost of goods and services is still rising faster than the RBA would like, making it more expensive for households and businesses.


Uncertain Economic Outlook

The economic outlook is currently quite uncertain. Recent data shows weak momentum in economic activity, slow growth in GDP, a rising unemployment rate, and slower-than-expected wages growth. This combination of factors indicates that the economy is not growing as robustly as hoped, which could have implications for the property market.


Risks to Consumption Growth

There is also significant uncertainty around consumption growth. With real disposable incomes stabilising and expected to grow later in the year, there’s hope that household spending will increase. However, if consumption picks up more slowly than expected, it could lead to subdued output growth and a deterioration in the labour market.


RBA's Priority: Return Inflation to Target

The RBA's primary goal remains returning inflation to the target range of 2-3%. They are closely monitoring global economic developments, domestic demand, inflation trends, and the labour market to make necessary decisions. The path of interest rates is still uncertain, but the RBA is committed to taking the necessary steps to achieve their inflation target.


What This Means for Property Investors
