The Reserve Bank doesn't meet in January, so the bank will make its next cash rate decision on 6 February 2018.
Mortgage Choice's John Flavell said the decision to keep the rate on hold was indicative of a thriving economy.
CoreLogic head of research Tim Lawless said the slowing house market continued to ease concerns about the need to cut the cash rate, while inflation remains below the RBA's target range, resisting calls for an increase in the cash rate.
"Property price growth has stagnated across Australia, which is line with expectations". In addition, inflation is now sitting at 1.8% - slightly below the Reserve Bank's target band range of 2-3%.
Economists widely expect the Reserve Bank to leave the cash rate at a record-low 1.5 per cent, where it has stood since August 2016.
