A number of Australian lender have increased their mortgage interest rates since the Reserve Bank’s last board meeting on 4 September. However, the minutes of the meeting note that the cost of financing a home loan remains lower than at the same time in 2017. The Reserve Bank also observed that bank funding costs are still low by historical standards. In addition, the Reserve Bank gave indications that the next movement in the cash rate is likely to be upward, although this is not expected in the near-term.
