I went to pyramid to gather some information about buying properties. This one attracted my attention as it has a 'beach'. And I could walk to my fav shopping mall, Sunway Pyramid or a transit bus. It is very nice ... smallest unit is 1300 sq ft ... and the price is ... errr ... RM950k, cheapest unit, with maintainance fees at 33cents per sq ft(RM400 per month). 2 car-parks, facing the lake too. but it is lease-hold.
How much should I be paying per month? Assuming I m grabbing it today ... 10% discount plus 7% bumi-discount and extra RM10k discount(for today only?) ... taking the maximum years the bank allowing(70yrs old), i will be paying RM3800 per month!! Wow ...
So, when I told the sales-person and the banker that I m just a lecturer with income less than RM5k per month, it is not possible ... I do need RM8k net income to be able to take the loan .... and this is only the basic.
So ... nice to see, not able to afford. But gained some shopping experience and will look for something i could afford, such as below RM300k?
