Maintenance and other hidden costs

hidden costsThere are so many factors to taken into consideration when it comes to buying a certain product. Some things, schools and universities do not teach you about. For example, how do you pay for a house or how do you save enough money for the future. Instead, we learn about theories that seldomly apply to everyday lift!

Maintenance and Other Hidden Costs - Is it a problem? | Blog | RentSmart Asia | Renting Is The New BuyingHaving money to purchase a product is one thing but having the money to keep on having the product is a whole new world. Let’s use a Lamborghini as an example. Everyone knows what a Lamborghini is, if you don’t then it’s an extremely fast and expensive car.

A Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 Superveloce is an extremely rare model. Only 600 units were made worldwide and Malaysia got 5 out of those 600 units. The purchasing price of this car is roughly RM2 Million. You can buy a nice house for that amount of money. But you know the saying, you can’t drive a house but you can live in a car.

Anyways, a car that costs the same price of a house is bound to have more addtional cost lying here and there. Before i tell you the road tax cost for this car, take a wild guess in your head. For a privately owned model, it would cost around RM17,000 per year for its road tax. If it is a company owned vehicle then it would cost RM53,000.

Look at it this way, every time you would renew your road tax, think of it as purchasing a myvi. That is literally the cost of purchasing one of Malaysia’s great cars. At the end of the day, if you are going to buy an expensive car, make sure you can afford to keep that car running for a good 5 years or so.

How do you save yourself from spending all these addtional money?
