From the record, it shows that the highest BLR Malaysia ever has is 12.27% in year 1998. The average is 8.1%. Probably you can use this to justify whether it is better to take the fixed rate loan or the BLR – x% housing loan.

At this moment, the BLR is 5.55%, the lowest BLR rate since 1976. Do inform if you have a more accurate information on the lowest BLR. With such low BLR, do you think this is a good time for investment ?
