Searching for a property financing that can suit your needs? Look no further, at Bank Simpanan Nasional (BSN) we are offering a financing with the lowest fixed rate in town. The financing offered is a Shariah compliant under an Al-Bai’ Bithaman Ajil (BBA) concept. What is Al-Bai’ Bithaman Ajil (BBA) concept is all about?
BBA is the only contract that does allow the customer to have an ownership on the asset. It refers to the sale of goods on a deferred payment basis at a price, which includes a profit margin agreed to by both parties. It is a credit sale contract made on a fixed installment. Hence changes in the Base Financing Rate will not allow the Islamic Banking to adjust its profit rate.
A sample calculation of a 20 years property financing is as follows:
Assume that you take out a 20 years financing for a house terrace of RM250,000 at a profit rate of 5.88%. The monthly installments and total repayment would be based on the following formula:
(PMT) = [FA (1 + r)n r] / [1 + (1 + r)n – 1]
Whereby: PMT is payment of monthly installment
FA is facility amount
r is profit rate (per month)
n is periodic payment (no of months)
Monthly installment = [RM225,000 (1 + 0.0049)240 x 0.0049] / [1 + (1 + 0.0049)240 – 1]
Whereas the Bank’s selling price is = RM1,596.43 x 240 months
