THE trends for new properties have seen the mushrooming of landed, gated and guarded properties, projects clustering around upcoming MRT and LRT stations, green-rated buildings and branded residences, not to mention top-to-toe glass-clad residences.

Here are more innovative offerings which have caught StarProperty’s eyes:

1. Iconic sculptural structures

Iconic architecture is a dominant trend that’s set to stay, judging from the wave of new buildings such as The Capers and The Fennel (pic, above left) developed by YTL Land & Development Bhd, Datum Jelatek by PKNS (Selangor State Development Corporation), Angkasaraya by UEM Sunrise Bhd and Icon Residence Mont’Kiara (pic, above right) by Mah Sing Group Bhd. Few in number but growing in stature, they make their presence felt with creativity and imagination.

The Fennel, for example, alters the skyline with its sharp and angled towers. “Its form, while unique to high-rise towers in KL, is actually a composition of standardised floor plates for the units – albeit stacked in a manner where every floor is incrementally adjusted outward or inward in groups of eight.

The result is a distinct profile in the skyline – somewhat “gravity defying”– but the floor plans are typical and repeated,” shares Rene Tan of RT+Q Architects, the firm which designed the 38-storey residential towers. Continue reading ..

KUALA LUMPUR: The electricity tariff will be increased by an average of about 14.89% for Peninsular Malaysia, and by about 17% for Sabah and Labuan from next year, said Energy, Green Technology and Water Minister Datuk Dr Maximus Johnity Ongkili.

“The average electricity tariff in Peninsular Malaysia will be up 4.99 sen per kWh or 14.89% from the current average rate of 33.54 sen/kWh to 38.53 sen/kWh.

“For Sabah and Labuan, the average tariff will be up 5.0 sen per kWh or 16.9% from current average rate of 29.52 sen per kWh to 34.52 sen per kWh,” he told reporters at a press conference in Parliament on Monday.

Rates in Sarawak will not be affected because the electricity supply in the state is operated by state-run company, Sarawak Energy.

The new rates will take effect from Jan 1, 2014, he added.

However, Dr Ongkili noted that 70.67% of consumers in Peninsular Malaysia and 62% of consumers in Sabah and Labuan will not be affected by the tariff hike.

“There will be no tariff increase imposed on the consumers who use electricity at a rate of, or lower than, 300kWh a month.

在预算案公布前,市场就已流言四起,短线投资者早已杯弓蛇影,更有市场人士劝请计划购屋者趁预算案公布前提前购屋,期间,Should sell now or buy也有不少人担忧成为“打房”受害者,赶紧在10月前脱售房产套利。

在一片沽售声中,预算案前的房市更显热闹,但随着一切尘埃落定,接下来的房市走势将趋向何方?
短期内,大家该买还是该卖?
这期且看业界人士怎么说。

政府打房虽出狠招 房产不会急降温
和许多商品一样,有需求就有供应,在政府祭出多项房市降温措施后,业界人士均认为,打房措施在开跑前的过渡期,虽会令部分投资者惊慌,但整体而言,不会让市场购兴迅速降温。
有房者一房接一房地买;有壳族则期望为住处升级,无壳族则渴望拥有一个蜗居。
在这个讨论买房卖房子的热门期,2014年预算案的多项房市降温措施,是否已奏效,还是在慢慢酝酿发酵?
我们找来房产界不同的专才,为处于买或卖十字路口的投资者剖析实况。

窥准时机捡便宜货
房地产咨询界人士认为,只要房产投资回酬依然诱人,预算案的打房措施虽然短期内让人止步,但长期而言,拥有充沛现金的投资者仍会选择房产作为投资组合的一部分。
简单来说,投机者,尤其是现金有限的人,可能会急忙在这2个月脱售手上的楼盘,以免在明年成交时承担更多产业盈利税。
但相反的,对房市整体有认识、需要购房自居或有能力的投资者,不但不会离场,可能这时正时等待捡便宜方好机会。

任广财:未来半年房价趋稳
即使政府以多项措施为房市降温,但市场需求才是主宰房价走势的主要因素,市场力量才是决定房市温度的关键。
短期内,房地产价格增幅虽然会放缓,但并不是下跌,而是趋向稳定。我预测房地产价格未来6个月,增幅将持平。
一些短线炒作的买家料将在这2个月内脱售房地产,但对于一些熟悉本地房地产的投资者,或是寻求租金回酬的投资者,房产盈利税对他们不会有太大影响。
因为他们大多计划长期持有房产,直至价格扬升至高水平再套现。

保罗邝:增盈利税影响赚幅
政府祭出的4大措施对不同房产类型都有不同程度的影响,其中,以上调房产盈利税(RPGT)一倍的影响最为全面。
顾名思义,房产盈利税是针对投资者的获利部分征收税务,脱售房产的投资者并非亏钱,只是赚少了。随着赚幅减少,会让投资者重新思考是否要将同一笔资金注入房产,又或者这项长期投资的回酬率是否符合投资者的预期。

符儒仁:冲击休闲型房产
房产盈利税与DIBS对市场影响不大,因真正计划投资房产的人,就已经有心理准备必须持有房产超过3年,以取得更高的投资回酬。
不过,限制外国人只能购买100万令吉以上的房产,将会让度假村类型或退休休闲类型的房产购兴下滑。但距离明年1月份不到2个月,短期内虽会因部分投资者脱售房产,出现微幅调整,但期限太短,预计房价调整幅度不大。
投资者如何应对?
房价涨幅虽进入缓慢期,但将继续攀扬,对于想要拥屋的受薪族来说,若继续抱持观望态度,未来就必须为购屋付出更高的成本。
在政府打房的时刻,投资者如何应对接下来房价停止急升,但持续保温的发展?

保罗邝:套利仅短暂反应
在这2个月内,购屋者不妨多加留意房屋市场,或许有些短线投资者会趁此时机脱售房产,虽然卖家不会亏本售屋,但购屋者有望以低于市价的价格购屋。
尽管市场会出现一些售屋套利情况,但预计这只是少数现象,不会影响房价继续走扬。

符儒仁:现金充裕可进场
对于房产盈利税的冲击程度,我认为十分有限。房市供需平衡只会维持极短的时间,因我国市场需求不断改变,加上各类经济因素左右,都会影响房市走势。我赞同政府的举措,有助遏制投机行为,及让房价攀升减速。
这样一来,手上有现金又真正有意购屋的人,可趁此时机购屋。

任广财:市场已调整供需
政府在打房的同时,也计划增建可负担房屋,这项措施将可协助更多中等收入受薪族拥屋。
可负担房屋素来都是热门房产,因此,相关计划的发展商较少借由媒体广告进行宣传,也因为这个原因使得人们认为市面上以豪华房产居多。
房产市场已开始自行调整供需,高档房产不断于市场推介,也反映出人们有意从小房换大房,因此不能将这类型购屋者纳为房产投机者。

打房未中要害
综观过去数年的大势,已让我国房市大起,部分地区的房地产价格增幅近乎达顶。
这次的打房焦点着重在退场机制,此举并无法抑制房价继续攀扬。投资者是否因此退场,严重打击房市买气?
任广财:资金有限投机者止步
对于计划拥屋的中等收入受薪族,政府遏制房产投机的举措,将让资金有限的投机者止步,从而让中等收入阶级更容易买到房子。
不过,我国房地产价格只会继续攀扬,并不会因为这一系列的措施而瞬间走跌,因此,有意拥屋者若继续抱持观望态度,未必是最好的策略。
国人对于房屋的需求依然旺盛,在这股需求带动下,势必将支撑房价走势,加上建材价格不断飙升,新推介项目将会以接近市价水平推出。

白文春:应从入场门槛下手
预算案的新宣布,难免冲击市场买气,影响投资者情绪。
不过,这些措施只是针对短线投机者,发展商及真正想要拥屋者并不会受到太大影响。
除非从入场门槛下手,减少市场对房屋的需求,否则很难遏制投机行为。
入场门槛相关的措施包括调高印花税,或者从贷款着手,将第三房的70%贷款限制,进一步调低至60%,借由提高购屋成本,让有意投资房产者三思。

蔡汝光:市场买气仍旺盛
产业盈利税骤增至30%,或许将导致一些短线炒作的投机者,宁可减少赚幅,赶在明年前将房产脱手。但这种情况并不意味着屋价会下降。
在短期内,仍未能感受到预算案对本地房地产市场的影响,发展商依旧继续推出新项目,市场买气依然旺盛。

1. Be calculative
Always look for the potential upside, and always calculate the amount of risk involved in the investment.

 

2. Face the facts
Always refer to facts and figures and not the hype surrounding the property or, especially, your own hopes and emotions. Before you dive in, do your research and work out if you have sufficient funds to hold onto a property for at least a few years.

 

3. Go in at the right price
When it comes to choosing the right property, the architect’s brand name or even the location is not as critical as the right entry price. This means cross-checking a property’s price against surrounding properties; if it is lower than its neighbors, that means you’re taking less of a risk and have the potential to make more of a profit.

 

4. Property’s popularity
Besides the affordability angle, a property’s popularity needs consideration. It has to be sizable enough, 40- to 50-unit developments are considered small. Best that it is located in a reasonably well-known area with a strong publicity push. When the market goes up, these are the properties which prices will double or triple up faster.

Property loan base on net selling price

PETALING JAYA (Nov 20, 2013): A new Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) ruling that requires banks to give out property loans based on net selling price, which excludes rebates and discounts, rather than gross selling price may affect loans growth for banks this year, Alliance Research Sdn Bhd said.

 

Its analyst Cheah King Yoong said a BNM circular sent out to banks last Friday announced not only the expected ban on the developers interest bearing scheme (DIBS) and the interest capitalisation scheme (ICS), but also an unexpected rule for all banks to determine their loan-to-value (LTV) ratio based on net selling price rather than gross selling price.

 

Banks can no longer provide financing for projects approved by authorities with DIBS on or after Nov 15, 2013 effective immediately. While those projects approved before Nov 15 have until Jan 1, 2014 before the prohibition is effected.

 

“We currently project 2014 loan growth target of 9%, supported by stronger growth of business loans stemming from the ongoing implementation of Entry Point Projects under the government’s Economic Transformation Plan, which is expected to fill up the vacuum left by the moderation in household loans. However, in light of the more onerous property lending curb, we will be reviewing this target,” Cheah said in a note to clients yesterday.

(吉隆坡19日讯)国家银行进一步展开打房行动,宣布必须以“净售价/实销价”(net selling price)取代“大价”(Gross Selling Price)来决定贷款对屋价比率,分析员对此深感意外,预期产业市场将再受冲击,明年产业价格虽不致于大跌,但交易量料将下滑。
 
分析员指出,新措施将使发展商提供的所有降低购屋者首期款的奖掖优惠完全失效。
 
继2014年财政预算案中公布数项抑制产业市场投机活动的措施之后,国行在11月15日发出“促进产业市场可持续性的措施”之通知文件,整合早前在2010年和2011年发出的有关贷款对屋价(LTV,loanto-value)比率的产业贷款限制指南和最新的发展商利息承担计划(DIBS)。
 
安联研究指出,发展商大致上对禁止DIBS的措施无动于衷,并声称将以其它形式的奖掖来取代DIBS。但是,国行在新的通知文件中规定,银行需用“净售价”(买卖合约中的价格减去所有奖掖)以决定所有类型产业融资的贷款对屋价比率,这将使所有购屋者须缴付更高的头期款,从而影响其购屋能力。
 
“我们相信产业市场所受到的负面冲击将比最初预期来得严重,相信房屋交易量将在2014年下跌。”
 
该行认为,虽然产业价格大致可维持,但一些依赖DIBS和其它奖掖计划的产业,将必须注明其“真实价值”。
 
一些产业买家或发展商也可能赶在2014年1月1日之前锁定其DIBS,在11月15日之前获得当局批准的产业计划,可继续提供DIBS直至今年结束。但仍未获得批准的产业,将即时禁止提供DIBS。
 
明年贷款成长或检讨
随着国行新措施出炉,分析员将检讨明年银行贷款成长预测。
 
安联研究表示,国行促进产业市场可持续性的新措施比之前预期来得严苛,虽然目前仍难以评估新措施对银行的冲击,但由于此条例是针对有产业融资,包括首次购屋者,意味购屋者的财务负担能力将受影响,这将令产业贷款成长走低。
 
该行原本预期明年贷款成长9%,主要因政府持续落实经济转型计划,令商业贷款强劲成长,从而填补房贷适中成长的空缺,惟该行如今将检讨此预测。
 
国行最新的政策显示当局决心抑制家庭债务的成长,此新措施再加上国行可能在2014年升息,联邦政府紧缩财政和补贴合理化计划,或拉低零售领域的贷款成长动力、令贷款成本暂时升高以及打击银行股的投资情绪。
 
该行目前保持增持银行股评级,将在第三季业绩季节期间向银行管理层厘清有关冲击之后再作检讨。

 

 

Net Selling Price to Loan
 
国行“促进房产市场永续措施”通告要点
●已拥有两个未偿还房屋贷款的个人,第三个房贷的最高上限(LTV)为70%。
●已拥有两个未偿还房屋贷款的非个人,第三个房贷的最高上限为60%。
●在计算个人的房贷上限方面,定期房贷保险(MRTA)的融资或可以不包含在内,但其他如律师费、印花税等成本的融资,则必须包含在内。
●在计算房贷上限方面,房地产价值必须是净估值,不可纳入所有价格折扣、调整、回扣或任何来自发展商且会扭曲房地产实质价值的优惠。
●对住宅和非住宅房地产的购买,加强限制“利息资本化”计划(Interest Capitalisation Scheme)的批准,包括“发展商承担利息计划”(DIBS)。

Diverse citizens in the world maybe randomly thinking of acquiring real estates in other countries for variety of reasons; new business ventures, new environment or could be just change of everything. Citizens in other countries usually require asking permission from their central banks before they finally can apply for a housing loan in Malaysia. Currently, there are no prohibitions and regulations for Foreigners in owning a Malaysian real estate.

The following are the categories for Foreigners who are legible to acquire a Malaysian real estate and apply for a housing loan:

 

1.)Expatriates or foreigners with valid working permit and existing business in Malaysia.

Some people believe that it is way cheaper to buy than to rent any property in Malaysia, that’s why inquiries about acquisitions really do arise. Lenders and borrowers relationship is equal in this scenario. A certain bank balance in a local bank and being able to show monthly wages that are credited properly into a local bank account produces right outputs. The borrower must be always ready to show overseas bank statements in case a part of an income is being paid there. Just remain cautious not to be caught in-between jobs. Lenders are more into stability of an individual in a certain setting rather than short new opportunities or jobs even if those jobs pay very well.

 

2.)Expatriates or foreigners under the MM2H program.

Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) is Malaysia’s Government program allowing foreigners to apply for a 10-year renewable multiple entry visa. The foreigners and expatriates who apply for MM2H are given incentives to experience the life they want to experience in Malaysia. Some Malaysian banks are actually offering flexible financing terms for the expatriate community so they can have loaning options and make things easier for them. Ministry of Tourism or any authorised MM2H agent handles this application. In Sarawak though, MM2H is only available to applicants over 50 years old. Continue reading ..

政府在2014年1月开始向三年内脱售房产的屋主征收30%的产业盈利税,市场预计短期内会有投机分子急抛售手上的房产,可能会令屋价短期微跌。

 

一名不愿具名的投资者分析,这情况或许在近期取得完工及落成准证(CCC),或称住用证的房屋计划更为严重,因为许多投资者都是等房屋计划取到入住用证后,就可以约双倍的价格出售产业。

 

对此,马来西亚产业经纪公会(MIEA)主席西华山卡尔表示同意,并认为会有一些投机分子或投资者为了避免被征收30%的产业盈利税,赶在这段时间内脱售产业,而一般上会以前者居多。

 

这是因为不少投机分子是属于购买发展商新推出的房屋计划,之后在竣工后调涨屋价出售,不过他们的资金或不充足,尤其是在发展商给予多项优惠下,可能是一分钱都没有缴付就成功购得房屋。

 

“所以随着这项政策的落实,将会有效打击投机活动,届时房产市场会放缓,若投机分子们无法成功脱售产业,将会面对无法偿还贷款的困境。”

 

不过,由于距离明年1月仅剩两个月的时间,有多少产业成功出售就难以预测。
