Jun 24, 2010 No Comments by

In 2010 the BLR rate change again, I believe most people who serve the home/housing loan at this moment will feel uncomfortable when want to pay the home/housing loan installment each month because it normally almost 40% to 50% of the monthly income. So how MHL-Malaysia Home Loan can help you to live a more comfort life?

Let’s take a case study by assuming:

Refinancing Case Example 1:

  1. Age: 35 years old
  2. Initial Loan Amount: RM300,000.00
  3. Average Interest Rate for the pass 5 years: 5.82% (Average BLR = 6.31% for past 5 years)
  4. Term: 30 years
  5. Total interest need to pay: RM326,000.00

Chart 1: Initial Loan before refinancing

  • The total money that is paid to settle the home loan amount plus interest is equivalence to a whopping total of RM668,000.00 whereby the interest paid is RM326,000 on top of the RM300, 000 loan amount. (If you current interest is more than 5.82% then you will be paying a large amount of interest)

Refinancing Your Home Loan/ Mortgage

There are 3 methods that you could save by refinancing your home loan. Those methods are able to help you save a lot on the interests paid for the home loan and others loan such as personal loan, business loan and credit card.

First Method: Reduce your monthly installment

Before Refinance

After Refinance

Outstanding Loan = RM277,000.00 Outstanding Loan = RM277,000.00
Interest Rate: 

Next 300 months = 5.82%

Interest Rate: 

Next 300 months = 6.05% -1.80% = 4.25%

Installment = RM1,764.00 Installment = RM1,500.00
Remaining Interest Paid = RM 240K Remaining Interest = RM 170K
Total Interest Save 

= RM 0

Total Interest Save: 

= RM240K – RM170K

= RM 70K

Monthly Installment Save 

= RM 0

Monthly Installment Save: 

= RM 1,764 – RM 1,500

= RM 264.00

Chart 2: Refinance to reduce monthly installment

 

By referring to above home loan case study, after paying the installments for 5 years, the outstanding loan amount is estimated to be RM277,000.00 and estimated interest remaining of RM240K based on the monthly installment of RM1,764.00
By refinancing the home loan, assuming the new interest rate is whole tenure 4.25% , the monthly installment has been reduced to RM1,500.00 per month for the remaining 25 years. With the new interest rate, now the total interest that is needed to pay for the home loan is reduced to RM170K.

After refinancing, you are not just save RM264 per months but you also save another RM70K home loan interest, so why wait!!! Hurry up and refinancing your home loan now…

Second Method: Retain Monthly Installment

Before Refinance

After Refinance

Outstanding Loan = RM277,000.00 Outstanding Loan = RM277,000.00
Interest Rate: 

Next 300 months = 5.82%

Interest Rate: 

Next 300 months = 6.05% -1.80% = 4.25%

Installment = RM1,764.00 Installment = RM1,764.00
Remaining Interest Paid = RM 240K Remaining Interest = RM 126K
Total Interest Save

Total Interest Save: 

= RM240K – RM126K

= RM 114K

Loan Tenure Save 

= 0 months

Loan Tenure Save: 

= 65 months

Monthly Installment Save

Monthly Installment Save:

Chart 3: Refinance but retain monthly installment

By retaining the original monthly installment of RM1764.00, while refinancing the home loan using the new interest rate whole tenure 4.25%., you will not only save more on the interest paid, the loan term has also been reduced up to 65 months. Not only that your home loan is settled earlier, with the shorter loan term, the interest amount that is paid for the remaining home loan is RM126K. That is a huge total savings of RM114K.

YES! Why wait if you are already thinking of refinance. Still doubt on that? Why not try use the refinance calculator to find out yourself..

Third Method: Refinance and Cash Out

Before Refinance

After Refinance

Outstanding Loan = RM277,000 

Property Value = RM400,000

Outstanding Loan = RM277,000 

Property Value = RM400,000

New Loan Amount

= RM400k x 90%

= RM360K

Interest Rate: 

Next 300 months = 5.82%

Interest Rate: 

Next 300 months = 6.05% -1.80% = 4.25%

Extra Cash = RM 0 Extra Cash 

= RM360K – RM277K

= RM83,000

Monthly Installment = RM1,764

Monthly Installment = RM1,950
