As of July 2019, average asking price is RM285,000 and average asking rental is RM1,100. (Based on mudah.my)

If take loan of 30 years with 4.5% interest and 10% downpayment, loan installment is RM1,300.

So if buy this property it is negative cash flow of RM200 per month. If include maintenance cost, quit rent and cukai petak, the loss is much higher.

The purchased price for this property is RM240,000 to have break even vs asking rental (only includes loan installment cost).

Property Developers Reputation

When choosing a property, we also must evaluate its developer as it will tell whether you will get quality workmanship, deliver on time and as advertised. To evaluate that I compare based on The Edge Property Excellence Award (as it is easy to find info and the award relates on property quality as well).

Besides I try to find the developers QClassic Scoring. Unfortunately not easy to find information for the correspondent developers.

The Edge Property Excellence Award

The Edge Property Excellence Award (TEPEA) is an award given to property developers based on their quantitative attributes:

  1. Shareholders’ funds
  2. Revenue
  3. Profit before tax
  4. Net gearing

and its qualitative attributes as follows:

  1. Quality of product (service, finish, timeliness)
  2. Innovation and creativity (product, marketing)
  3. Value creation for buyers (capital appreciation)
  4. Image market perception (credibility, management style, effectiveness)
  5. Expertise (management, experience)

QClassic Scoring

Quality Assessment System in Construction (QLASSIC) is a system or method to measure and evaluate the workmanship quality of a building construction work based on Construction Industry Standard (CIS 7). QLASSIC enables the quality of workmanship between construction projects to be objectively compared through a scoring system.

The accreditation is done by CIBD.

So far I can only find OSK QClassic for Emira Shah Alam Project scored at 80.28%. It means that OSK already doing QClassic to ensure that their property development follows high standard.
