If you like old school, we can share with you the way to calculate your entitlement.

This may not be 100% correct because every banks may have their own calculation and guidelines. But, this can use as a guide. 

First, write down all your commitments:

Car Loan instalment: RM1000

Housing Loan instalment: RM1200

Personal Loan Instalment: RM500

Credit Card min payment: RM5000 (Outstanding) x 5% min payment = RM250

Total commitment: RM1000 + RM1200 + RM500+RM250 = RM2950.00 

Secondly, check out your latest payslip and look at your net income. For example, net income is RM10,000.00. 

Normally, bank will use Debt Service Ratio (DSR) to calculate your entitlement.

Healthy DSR will be less than 70%.

For example, net income RM10,000 x 70% = RM7000.00 

Your existing commitment and new instalment cannot exceeded RM7000.

If your commitment is RM2950, your new instalment should not exceeded RM4050 ( RM7000-RM2950 = RM4050)

So, how much you can borrow with instalment RM4050.00?

Now you have to work backwards, if your age is 30 yrs. The maximum tenure now offer by bank is 35 year or up to age 70 years, whichever comes first.

With 30 year old age, you can still entitle for tenure 35 years.

Interest rates offer in the average of 4.40% or 4.50% per annum.

Key in this information, in our mortgage calculator.

Start with key in your loan amount RM300,000, rates 4.50% and tenure 35 years. And click calculate.

You will get instalment per month. If the instalment way far from your instalment amount RM4050, just keep add in your loan amount.

I manage to get RM858,981.44 loan amount for instalment RM4050.00

If RMRM858,981.44 is 90% of loan amount, the purchase price you are entitle to purchase is RMRM858,981.44 / 90%( max margin) = RM954,423.82

So your entitlement of purchase price is house not more than RM954,423.82

Are you able to calculate?
