The “Skim Rumah Pertamaku” or My First Home Scheme was first announced in the 2011 Budget by the Malaysian Government. This is one of the good initiatives taken by the government to help young adults earning RM5,000 per month or less to get 100% financing from Banks to purchase their first home.

For example:
Gross combined income : RM2,000 + RM3,000 = RM5,000
Net combined income : RM4,350 (income after statutory deductions i.e. tax, EPF & SOCSO)
60% of RM4,350 = RM2,610 (total financing obligations)
Mortgage loan repayment should not exceed: RM2,610 – RM1,200= RM1,410
Based on current interest rates and permitted maximum financing tenor of 35 years (subject to borrowers’ age not exceeding 65 years at the end of financing tenure), your maximum eligible financing amount is about RM294,000.
