The good news for those considering personal loan refinancing is an RBA suggestion that interest rates could remain at current levels for some time to come.
Australia (PRWEB) June 11, 2008
At its Board meeting on Tuesday 3 June, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) decided to keep the cash rate at 7.25 per cent due to tighter financial conditions and a slowdown in demand. Despite concerns about inflationary effects on wages and price setting, the current outlook of the RBA suggest that there is a good possibility that rates could remain at current levels for some time to come. This is good news for those considering refinancing their personal loans, as while lenders will need to maintain a tough fiscal policy in order to keep rates rising, they will also need to offer better terms in order to remain competitive.

Many people are turning to debt consolidation in order to reduce the amount of interest they are paying on bad credit in the current financial climate. While the cash rate remains high this will probably continue to be a popular option for those seeking to be debt free, but tighter conditions could mean that many borrowers will be unable to cover the entire amount of their debts with a single consolidated loan. This can be compounded by consumers being unfamiliar with the wide range of lenders on the market for personal loans, as often they will stop searching after they have only applied with the biggest banks.
There are websites that can help the average person to become more familiar with the personal loans industry, such as personalloans.com.au which has many pages dedicated to loan information, lending articles, news as well as the ability to compare personal loans of the some of the best lenders in the industry. This site also goes into detail about applications for personal loans and what high risk individuals can expect lenders to offer them. In such a confusing financial climate, resources like this are necessary to keep people informed about what is on offer for personal loans.
