Financial news: Harder to buy a property today or a long time ago?
There was a time when depositing RM1 million in the bank as Fixed Deposit will gain the saver 8 percent of interest if not higher and that means this saver could get a monthly interest equivalent to RM6,667 per month. This is the typical salary of a M40 household. In other words, it’s actually possible to take it easy once we have managed to save our first RM1 million. RM6,667 is not a lot of money but certainly enough even for today’s typical expenses per month. I know, it’s much harder to get RM1 million then because the salaries are lower.
