For many people, rental costs will take a significant chunk out of your disposable income.
How much should you spend on rental, though? A good rule of thumb is no more than 30% of your income. This percentage should preferably also include your bill costs (electric, water, Indah Water, etc).
I was reading articles like ‘This is what $1500 in rent will get you in cities around the world’, and I thought, why not do one for Kuala Lumpur? 😀
Without further ado, here are the places you can afford to rent in Kuala Lumpur on your salary bracket.
Bistari Condominium. It’s a really nice place. I can truthfully say that I can’t afford to buy this place and I feel that I’m living above my means. It’s absolutely prime location: next to LRT station, walking distance to monorail and KTM. Walking distance to PWTC, Sunway Putra Mall and medical centres. Condominium facilities includes: Swimming Pool, Sauna, Foot Reflexology, Tennis Court, Mini Gym, 24-hour Security, and tennis court. House facilities includes: fully furnished with dining table, sofa etc, full kitchen, washing machine, and AC.
And yes, I pay only RM150 per month for the master bedroom, with attached toilet. Yes, that is considered a super cheap rent in KL.
