Cure, but prevention is needed
10/04/1991NST
IF you were to buy a house now for $100,000 and take a loan for $80,000 repayable over 20 years, be prepared to stump out some, $700 a month. If you earn anything under $2,000 a month, that's a lot to pay. Now consider this. You have paid a developer $50,000 for that $100,000 dream house, but he has run off with your money. You will be paying some $4,000 a year or over $360 a month in interest with nothing to show for it. This puts paid to any hope you may harbour of buying another house with your income since you have to continue paying this interest to your banks, unless of course, you repay the principal. Which is out of the question with your income. There are some 55,000 such buyers in various stages of difficulty in Malaysia - the hapless victims of incompetent, bungling, unscrupulous, greedy and irresponsible housing developers. Multiply the figure by four (to a household) and the number of people affected by abandoned housing schemes comes to about 220,000, equivalent to one quarter of the population of Kuala Lumpur, including the suburbs.

Odds against build-then-sell concept 27/05/1991 BT By P. Parameswaran
