Bungalows at Horizon Hills in Iskandar Malaysia.
ISKANDAR Malaysia remains very popular among property investors.
Malaysian residential were keen on buying a new property in the popular economic corridor.
A total of 80 per cent of the participants cited reasons such as better discounts offered by developers, better security and newer designs for wishing to buy a slice of Iskandar.
Those preferring resale units said they wanted the option of moving in immediately.
Others said buying a resale property eliminates the possibility of building delays or even developers abandoning the project.
Respondents also said that they were willing to fork out up to RM1 million (S$390,000) for a property in Iskandar, while most were comfortable with units in the range of RM500,000 to RM750,000.
In Malaysia, foreigners can buy only units that are priced above RM500,000.
When asked which projects they were most interested in, the majority pointed to Mah Sing’s Meridin Suites and Medini Signature by One Medini, citing the developers’ reputations for their choice. The upmarket Horizon Hills was also the next development popular with respondents.
However, some also had their concerns about buying a property in Malaysia, with political instability at the top of the list of concerns.
The uncertainty over the development’s completion came in next, while Malaysia’s ambiguous policies were the third biggest worry.
After Iskandar, Klang Valley came in second as the next favoured destination, followed by Penang.
