Bank Scorecard on RUMAWIP’s Loan

A bank scorecard is a tool used by mortgage lenders to evaluate the creditworthiness of potential borrowers. It is used to determine the likelihood that a borrower will default on their mortgage loan and to assign a risk rating to the borrower. The scorecard takes into account a variety of factors that are relevant to a borrower’s creditworthiness, including their credit history, debt-to-income ratio, and employment history.

One of the main components of a bank scorecard is the borrower’s credit score. A credit score is a numerical representation of a person’s creditworthiness, based on their credit history. It is calculated using information from the borrower’s credit reports, which detail their credit accounts, payment history, and outstanding balances. Credit scores range from 300 to 850, with higher scores indicating a lower risk of default. Lenders typically prefer borrowers with credit scores of at least 620, although some may require a higher score. (Each bank’s grading process is different)

In addition to the borrower’s credit score, the scorecard also considers other factors related to their credit history. These may include the length of their credit history, the types of credit accounts they have, and the number of credit inquiries they have made in the past. Lenders may also look at the borrower’s payment history, including any late payments or bankruptcies. (Applicant advise not to use above 50% of the credit card limit)

Another important factor that is considered in a bank scorecard is the borrower’s debt-to-income ratio or known as debt service ratio (DSR). This ratio compares the borrower’s monthly debt payments to their monthly income and is used to determine their ability to manage their debt. A higher debt-to-income ratio may indicate that a borrower is overextended and may be at a higher risk of defaulting on their mortgage loan. Lenders typically prefer borrowers with debt-to-income ratios of 60% or lower for My First Home Scheme, although some may consider higher ratios on a case-by-case basis.

In addition to credit history and debt-to-income ratio, the scorecard may also consider other factors such as the borrower’s employment history and income. A stable employment history and a higher income may indicate that a borrower is more likely to be able to make their mortgage payments on time. Those working in the hotel and airline industries have almost no chance of obtaining a mortgage during the Covid Pandemic.

The scorecard may also consider the value of the property being purchased and the borrower’s assets. Lenders may look at the value of the property (RUMAWIP is cap at max price of RM300,000) to determine whether it provides sufficient collateral for the loan. They may also consider the borrower’s assets, such as savings or investments, to determine their financial stability and ability to make their mortgage payments.

The purpose of the bank scorecard is to help lenders make informed decisions about whether to approve a mortgage loan and, if so, at what terms. Lenders use the scorecard to determine the interest rate and down payment requirements for the loan. Borrowers with higher scorecard ratings may be offered more favorable loan terms, such as a lower interest rate or a higher loan-to-value ratio (not applicable for RUMAWIP).

The scorecard is an important tool for both lenders and borrowers. Lenders use it to mitigate the risk of default, while borrowers can use it to understand what factors are most important to lenders and to take steps to improve their creditworthiness. Improving a borrower’s scorecard rating may make it easier to qualify for a mortgage loan and may result in more favorable loan terms.

There are several ways that borrowers can improve their scorecard rating and increase their chances of getting approved for a mortgage loan. One of the most important things they can do is pay their bills on time and reduce their outstanding balances (the lower the DSR; the better!). They can also work on building a longer credit history by opening new credit accounts and using them responsibly. Additionally, borrowers can try to lower their debt-to-income ratio by paying down their debt or increasing their income.

RUMAWIP a Hedge Against Inflation?

Buying a good RUMAWIP can be a great way to earn a substantial income, but it’s important to understand that it’s not a get-rich-quick scheme. It takes a lot of hard work, research, and knowledge to be successful in a property hold and sell strategy, as RUMAWIP has a 10-year restriction on selling from the S&P stamped date. However, with the right approach, it is possible to make a substantial gross profit of at least RM 150,000.

The first step in buying a RUMAWIP is to find the right RUMAWIP. Look for RUMAWIP are located in desirable neighbourhoods, Residensi Dutamas Dahlia (FREEHOLD) located in Jalan Dutamas Dahlia 5 is one perfect example. Once you have identified a good RUMAWIP, you will need to perform a thorough analysis to determine the costs of repairs, the estimated value of the property after the repairs, and the potential profit which is hard because this will be 6-7 years later after vacant possession (renovation & repair cost will surely increase)

The key to making a substantial profit is to do the renovations quickly and efficiently. This will reduce carrying costs and allow you to put the property back on the market as soon as legally possible. Be sure to use high-quality materials and hire experienced contractors to ensure that the work is done correctly.

Once the renovations are complete, it’s time to market the property. This can be done through real estate portal like Property Guru. Be sure to highlight the features and improvements of the property to attract potential buyers. (Residensi Dutamas Dahlia was sold at 333 Ringgit per square feet in Jalan Dutamas)

The final step is to close the sale and collect the profit. This can be done through a real estate agent or through a direct sale to a cash buyer. Be sure to account for all closing costs and fees, as well as any outstanding debts on the property.

In summary buying and holding an RUMAWIP can be a great way to hedge against inflation, and while staying in it, you can maintain the unit with extra care, but it takes a lot of hard work, research, and knowledge to be successful. By finding an RUMAWIP GEM, it is possible to make a gross profit of at least RM 150,000. It’s important to remember that not every RUMAWIP is a good buy and some projects will be harder to execute than others.
