          No.
          It was from a bank economist and reported in the media.

          Those two facts put together are irrefutable proof that it is 100% accurate and will happen.

          That is the way it always works here.

          • Well if it comes it'll be a bit late for me as I fixed yesterday. $134K. Slit between 2 yrs @ 4.99 and 3yrs @ 5.15.

            Existing bank, ASB. I guess they saw me as small fry who didn't warrant any cash.

            It certainly matters who you talk with, though. The first one was clueless, so I asked for someone else to call me and he worked out to be quite good. It pays to persevere, sometimes!

            • I'd be very surprised if the RBNZ moves than much in such a short time frame ....no more than 50 basis points IMHO maybe even just 25 before the years out .... yet again it's just hype like it was couple years back on us having 8%+ loan rates in 2016 utter media BS ....

                or things are worse than you think

                WITH Greece teetering on the brink of exiting the euro area, the timing of the Bank of England’s twice-yearly update on financial stability was not ideal.

                As of two weeks ago, the outlook in the report was broadly unchanged, said Mark Carney, the bank’s governor.

                But given the Greek crisis—
                and especially the events of this week—things are now looking worse.

                  50 points drop within the rest of the year will do fine.

                        Do you understand the reasons interest rates are being cut?

                          This is a problem.
                          There seems to be a disconnect in some peoples minds about what is good and bad.
                          Cutting interest rates may result in lower mortgage rate.
                          But it is an indication that all is not well in the economy.
                          Property does better when the economy does better - some people think property lives in it's own little world divorced from reality.
                          That may happen for a while but can't go on forever.

                            Problem is, Auckland is divorced from the rest of NZ/reality...

                              Yeah non-Auckland areas will be flat, while immigrants pushing Auckland up.

                                Do you think Auckland property is divorced from from the Auckland economy?
