The residential subsector for the state of Penang in the second half of 2010 remains vibrant and continue to be the dominant sector in terms of number of transactions of the Penang Property Market. It is inevitable that home prices are on the rising trend in recent quarters brought about by improving economic conditions nationwide and continued bullish outlook of the Malaysian economic performance. It is also a widely known fact that landed house prices such as single and double storey terraced houses, in particular, Penang Island are amongst the highest in the country which have gone beyond the affordable levels of the medium income groups and new home seekers.
However, first time home buyers can still look for affordable Penang Apartments in the secondary market of Penang Island as there are many choices of medium range apartments priced from RM130,000 to RM220,000 per unit.
Incentive for first time home buyers under Budget 2011
Following the recent budget announcement on 15th October 2010, the government will introduce the “Skim Rumah Pertamaku” or “My First Home Scheme” through Cagamas Berhad to assist the newly-employed younger group earning less than RM3,000 per month to buy a house costing less than RM220,000.00.
First time home buyers will be eligible for 100% FINANCING. First-time house buyers will also be given stamp duty exemption of 50 per cent on instruments of transfer on a house price not exceeding RM350,000 as well as stamp duty waiver of up to 50 per cent on loan agreement instruments to finance such first-time purchase of houses. With the exemption in stamp duty, first time home buyers stand to SAVE UP TO RM2,250.00.
Perks for first-time house buyers
a)Savings on 50% waiver of stamp duty on transfer instrument:-
House Price say RM220,000.00
1% on first RM100,000.00 – RM1,000.00
2% on balance RM120,000.00 – RM2,400.00
50% waiver RM 1,700.00
b)Savings on 50% waiver of stamp duty on loan instrument :-
0.5% on full loan say RM220,000.00- RM1,100.00
50% waiver RM 550.00
First time purchaser needs to pay RM2,250.00 only instead of RM4,500.00. Hence, effective savings is RM1,700.00 + RM550.00 = RM2,250.00.
