Financial Guide, Property Guides

If money has always been the biggest hurdle to getting your very own property, perhaps step-up financing is your solution. Read on to find out how step-up financing coupled with the Mah Sing H.O.M.E. campaign could finally allow you to purchase your dream home.

What is the Step-Up Financing loan plan?

In 2017, the 1Malaysia Peoples’ Housing (PR1MA) Corporation, introduced a special flexible loan scheme known as the Special PR1MA End Financing Scheme. This step-up financing loan plan was designed to allow middle-income groups earning between RM2,000 and RM15,000 to purchase homes. It was beneficial to these groups as they had access to a higher loan amount while enabling eligible applicants to pay their monthly mortgage at a lower amount than with regular loans.

Where can I apply for the Step-Up Financing loan plan?

Have we gotten your attention? Now comes the good part—you have your pick between three different banks that offer step-up financing loan plans. CIMB, Affin Bank, and Maybank each have their own packages. Below, we detail them so you can pick which suits your preference best.
