You can read more about it here in an earlier article too. REIT Advantages Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) is another way for invetors to start investing into the real estate world without the need to have big capital. Just buy these like we buy a stock from the share market. Enjoy the dividends which is still considered attractive when compared to fixed deposit rates. Just need to be aware of the latest returns before you buy yeah. It could have changed because the REIT price may have increased etc. Plus, REIT allows us to buy into real estate assets which would have been impossible for us to buy by ourselves.

ABCs of Personal Finance

Personal finance 101. Salary from KL. Property from Selangor.

As per Department of Statistics, Malaysia, the median salary of someone working in Kuala Lumpur is RM10,549 while the median salary for someone working in Selangor is RM8,210. That means one would earn up to 30% extra per month if one were to work in KL instead of Selangor. Just need to note that this is median and that KL would have more of the high paying jobs because someone working within the KL CBD cannot be having a lower pay than someone working in Kajang. Else, better work in Kajang lah since properties in Kajang is much cheaper than KL.

Would you buy a haunted house?

Okay, I would not. Then again I learnt long time ago from my real estate friend that there are people willing to buy a haunted home, as long as it comes with a hefty discount. I repeat, I still would not. Haha. However, frankly speaking, if someone is able to buy a haunted house at a super heavy discount, then ‘clean’ it up, then maybe it’s possible to sell for profit? Else, perhaps buy, ‘clean’ and then use for own stay?

How low can property prices go?

Actually, can also ask this instead. How long can home owners hold versus having to sell their properties during a slow period? It can also be how long can potential home buyer wait and see while continuing to pay rental or whatever payment if the house they are eyeing is for own stay.

Too many bad news. Stop buying property.

The issue with social media these days is that we are tricked into believing what we read is the truth and that’s far from the truth. Engagement is key. Thus, social media platforms will do their very best to show you things you lik to read. What you like to read would then be the majority of things shown to you. As for property investment, it’s another thing which will have both sides of the story ALL THE TIME.

Get ready to LOSE a lot of our money because of inflation

Recently, it has been revealed that many developed countries are suffering from double digit inflation and that’s one major reason why they kept increasing their interest rates in order to tame inflation. One example is the U.S. The interest rates have been raised to the most current 3.8% from an average of 0.9% in 2020. It’s 4x higher versus that starting point. With all these expectations, the US$ continued to chalk new highs versus all major currencies except those which is pegged or linked to it.

House prices are falling because interest rates are increasing. Oh dear.

It means to ensure inflation caused by people buying too much or speculatively will be reduced. When people are not investing, not buying then interest rates may be lowered to make it attractive for businesses to invest and people to buy. For example when rates are low, buying a property looks cheap. Okay, in comparison to the rates I used to pay for my first property, the current rates are extremely low. Not even half by the way.
