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.

S P Setia may hit pre-sales target of RM4 billion

Besides the stock market which may reflect the economic situation, developer’s sales results are also another way to know if the economy is doing well or not. Imagine an econmy where unemployment is high. Salary earners would be worried and definitely will not make any house buying decision until they feel certain that their current job is certain. This is why during a slowdown, property developers will feel the pressure because many buyers may not be thinking of buying a property.

Our EPF returns over the years?

This statement has been mentioned to me many times by many different people. In actual fact, EPF has given me one of the best returns for many years and for recent years, the returns are higher than my FD returns and higher than the home loan repayment interest which I have to pay. There’s no guarantee it could be the same in the future but my wish is for this to continue and remain as high as possible.

Recession Malaysia to be a reality in 2023?

This is the definition for recession. A recession is a significant, pervasive, and persistent decline in economic activity. (Investopedia) Briefly, it meant that people spend less than last year. Imagine getting the same salary this year as last year. However, because of sentiment, you decided to spend less and save the money into the savings account instead. Now imagine another 100,000 people who has the same thoughts all doing the same. Suddenly, the number of people spending in malls are reduced.

Startups: Focus back on fundamental; profitability and not subsidy.

I have been investing for the last 24 years I think. I started buying unit trust way back in 2020. Haha. I continue to be invested in the stock market and the amount remain substantial.

I do not understand it enough.

RM240,000 is the minimum we need to have in EPF when we retire

If this is a question for me, “Should I withdraw my EPF before 55?” My answer is a simple one, NO. My main reason is because EPF savings is really for post-retirement, when our active income has stopped or has gone down significantly versus the time when one was still working full time and thus has monthly income. In fact, I would like to leave the savings in EPF inside EPF as long as possible so that I have something to fall back upon.

Disneyland in Melaka? Disney says…

Well, someone announced it. Media reported it and now Disney has also given their clarification. Briefly, they said, NO.

ABCs of Property Investment

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?
