First Home

Read some tips on buying your first home.

Buying your first home?

Eyeing your first home? Getting the right home loan/financing is your first step towards home ownership. And it's not as scary as you think. Once you have figured out how much home financing you require, just remember the 3 Ts: Type, Tenure and Total.

  • Type of home financing available and which one suits your payment
  • Tenure of the home financing which means the number of years you want to take to pay off your financing
  • Total costs involved including your monthly instalment, charges and fees, and whether you can afford them

The right mortgage can help you own your first home faster

A flexible mortgage is your best option if you want to pay off your mortgage faster and reduce your interest/financing payable. How?

  • Reduce interest/financing payable by depositing your entire salary in the home financing account. When you need the cash, withdraw the excess payment (salary – monthly instalment = excess payment) anytime without fees.
  • Leave a little behind every month. Saving a little extra, even just RM50*, in your flexible home financing account every month as excess payment can help you save on the interest charged.
  • Take a longer tenure to enjoy lower monthly instalments repayment so that it will not be burdensome should you be financially tight in certain months. A longer tenure can be shortened with excess payments you put in your home financing account.
