“Should I buy a sub-sale or a brand new house?”
Buying a house may just be one of the most important decisions in your life. Here is a comparison that could help you decide on which would be best suited for you.

1. Price & Discount

New Houses

Price of new houses are typically higher than those of sub-sale houses as they are new and would likely have minimal defects. There will often be discounts or rebates for brand new properties such as stamp duty exemptions, early-bird discounts, minimal down-payment etc. to pique the interest of potential home buyers

Sub-sale

Sub-sale houses are usually sold at lower prices compared to new houses as they are aged and may have defects. The price is as it is without any discounts or if you are lucky, you may be able to bargain with the seller to sell it to you at a lower price.

Kinta Properties:

Kinta properties is now offering special rebates up to RM65k. Call our sales team to find out more at 012-500 8018.

2. Warranty

New Houses

Under the HDA of Malaysia, the defect liability period is 24 months (individual title) or 36 months (strata title) starting from the date you collect your keys (vacant possession), where developers are to fix any issues related to the houses built.

Sub-sale

If you move in after a few months and find defects; you will need to repair them at your own cost. In buying a sub-sale house you must inspect the house for any defects otherwise you won’t be able to get the previous owner to repair them.

Kinta Properties:

3. Moving in

New Houses

When you are buying a house that is still under construction, you will have to wait for at least two years until it is completed. There are cases of new launches not meeting the deadlines or developers abandoning the project. This is why it is important to choose a reputable developer.

Sub-sale

As you are buying an existing property, you shouldn’t have any problems moving into your new house after all of the legal paper works are done (usually 2-3 months).
