    So agree with you. Just came back from GSD and saw one man screaming at the staff attending him for the poor service he receive, I was super disappointed too with their service. Every time call them up also wait wait wait, some more ask us to call back to check on bank release status. How hard is it to call back your customer? Some more never mention the procedure, let me go back many times for nothing, some more speak so rude and hang up customer call… So sad with their service….

    I already received my key on last Wednesday.
    1. Pay the maintenance billings.
    2. Check your bank account is all loan amount fully released?
    3. If yes, then just walk-in to make the appointment instead of call

    I even have my PBA and TNB installed this week.

    Document:

    Called them 2 times after my loan released on 6/July. 1st call on 8July, they checked and said the money still not received. 2nd times on 15July, called them, confirmed the last payment received and maintenance paid. They processed my clearance letter and called me back in about 2hrs later to make appointment. I got my key on 17July. Only when you managed to make appointment only then you can go to Sierra office to get key with the clearance letter issue by GSD office. They have daily quota for appointment, try to arrange on week days instead of weekend if you want to have better communication with staffs in Sierra office.

    Take EPF money take out you confirm get the money, EPF money kept in EPF, confirm the money is not yours, just documentation is your money. Anything can happen, so for better usage of the money since you able to take it out, why still kept in EPF? After September I don’t think you can take out the money since already pass 3 years from SnP date.

    do you mean the monies that are ours in EPF are not ours? just documentation? why all these while nobody complains that they cannot take monies from EPF when their times comes to take out?

    Yes, in terms of dollar and cents, it is better off putting in EPF and pay for housing loan, especially so if you are cash rich and if you are near to withdrawal age.

    However, in my humble opinion, if you are in your 30s, which is still far off the withdrawal age, it is better off to use your EPF for your housing as I hold the view that money today is worth more than money in the future.

    like what you had mentioned….if you can afford it, better leave the monies it in EPF and pay using available cash flow…..and I would differ from your thinking…that if got longer term, better use EPF to pay…because the longer term you have the longer compounded interest terms you will get from EPF…a different of 2% will make a BIG different in value in 20~30 years time

    Hi,

    you are looking at absolute value. In financial, you have to look at real value which you will need to take into consideration of inflation. For the past 30 years, malaysia inflation average 3.68%.

    perhap a better example is today with rm200k, what can you buy? compared with 200k in 20-30years ago.

    that is why, must try to make every efforts to make our monies more worth while….every 2% pa extra will generate more in the longer terms…
    (epf paying more interest than the housing loan charges)

    I think you mistaken my view, If I am in my 30s, I dun take the view that keeping the money in EPF is better.

    Taking Inflation as 3.68%, EPF paying 6%, mortgage loan is 4%, One will earn in real value is 6% minus 4% minus 3.68% = negative 1.68%

    Giving another example, assuming if EPF today has 100k, and retirement age in 20 years, your so called 2% extra yield compounded will give you 148k in 20 years time.

    As such, I rather use the 100k today then to recieve 148k in 20 years time where 148k cant do much in 20 years.

    As such, i rather use EPF today to pay for my mortgage as 1) I rather use the extra cash on hand to buy other assets / spend today 2) I rather hold cash as it is real unlike EPF where I can see cannot touch

    in post#9 (post#14)…it is between EPF is paying abt 6% interest pa and housing loan is charging 4.x% pa……More worth while to keep in EPF”….
    referring to your post#18…. if one can get an investment that can yield better than EPF rate…then by all means,…use the EPF monies to pay for the mortgage and use the cash to do that investment which can yield better returns….

  20. buying
    August 2nd, 2015 at 00:15 | #20

    I rather NOT hold cash even though it is real unlike EPF where I can see cannot touch until retirement age or partial withdrawal…..holding cash will be “eaten’ bits by bits by inflation…

    I have difference view……withdraw EPF money for Aprovedl unit trust which average yield 2 to 3% more than EPF. Don’t use for housing loan or kept all in EPF.
    Use ur cash to target new assets with good yield – Auto pilot is the key to success.

    cannot find the unit trust performance list in EPF website…
    anyway…I am happy for you that they never fails you with 8 to 9 % pa.
    guess, some people would never want that risk associated with unit trusts and its fees incurred, even though they want their money to work harder.
    Anyway, thanks for the suggestion…..as it is a good idea to make monies work harder if one would have the appetite to take some extra risks that comes with that investment.
    Wow 8 to 9% pa never fails…some people would envy that…

    there is also a criteria to be met before one can take out monies for Unit trust investment with money if EPF and also because of that criteria the amount of monies can be taken out for investment may be limited or not able to take out for investment….
