The minutes revealed that Board members had noted a further pick up in lending to housing investors in recent months and discussed the importance of banks maintaining strong lending standards as well as the ongoing dialogue between the RBA and APRA on this matter.
The RBA said continued accommodative monetary policy should support demand and help growth strengthen over time.
"To date, this had been most apparent in the housing market, where dwelling investment had picked up and was expected to remain strong following the rapid rise in housing prices and high levels of approvals," the minutes said.
In recent months, RBA stepped up its warning that record low levels of interest rates risked stoking unwelcomed increases in home prices and debt.

On the Australian dollar, the central bank said it remained high by historical standards, particularly given the recent declines in key commodity prices.
The drop in iron ore prices, to their lowest since September 2009, was discussed by Board members.
"The decline over the past year had reflected a combination of increased Australian and global supply and, more recently, some softening in the growth of Chinese demand for steel, perhaps resulting in part from weaker conditions in the housing market," the minutes said.

"Members noted that most Australian iron ore production remained profitable at these lower prices and that increased pressures on global higher-cost mines would be expected, in time, to lead to reductions in their production."
The RBA said most of the country's major trading partners had continued to grow at their long-run average pace over the past year, although there had been quarterly volatility in growth in some major economies.
The central bank said while some indicators showed China's economic conditions had softened a little, "members were briefed that the Chinese authorities had scope to ease policy if needed to support GDP growth."
