How to use Home Loan Calculator?

You can get a proper estimation of the monthly housing loan repayments for your house while using some property related websites. The procedure is almost the same for all websites –

  • Enter the price of the property in Malaysian Ringgit.

However, do not consider Home Loan Calculator as a certified source for actual understanding of installments since it is just estimation. The developers or the sellers are going to provide the actual information regarding installments. To get the most accurate figure, the lender needs to provide their interest rate to check if they qualify.

The size of down payment given by the homebuyer plays a very important role. If the buyer pays a large down payment, he/she can secure a high credit ceiling. The home loan amount would also be low in this case.

Check out why securing a high credit ceiling is important in this video.

Nevertheless, those who cannot afford to pay a large down payment can choose a longer loan term so that they can keep the monthly home loan repayment low as well.

There are four factors that affect housing loan eligibility

  1. Loan-to-value (LTV) ratio
  2. Debt-to-service ratio (DSR)
  3. Credit score
  4. Your bank's risk profile
