    I don't usually watch the rates myself but do we think the banks will pass this on? if so will it increase buying or is it simply too low an amount to have an impact?

    I think it's good investing times.

    Low interest rates mean better outcomes for borrowers. Less interest payable on I/O.
    I do not think the banks will be passing on the rate cuts though.

    I think this would be the tipping point for Brisbane. Setting Brisbane from moderate growth to more accelerated growth

    I'm sure this is good news for investors in all of the currently-rising markets - lower interest rate means easier to hold onto, better cashflow, more borrowing capacity, more investor confidence.

    About to get even busier :)

    All the more reason to tinker with negative gearing in the budget tonight?

    I think the banks won't pass much ... they are having issues with capital and bad loans (check out Westpac and ANZ results). They will try to hold on to the cash available.

    Banks want to avoid a royal commission or for it to be an election issue. I'm tipping most will pass on.

    yeah its just for the banks to buffer their losses. the "blood on the streets" from the commodity crash last year is just starting to show this year and should continue for the rest of the year. an expected lag in the boom bust cycle..
