  • JLL Property Services (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd董事经理YY Lau

这些房地产专业人士的票选结果,可归纳为五大重点:
1. 焦点重移隆市和Mont’Kiara

建议地点:KLCC、Ampang KL、Mont’Kiara、KL Metropolis、Bandar Malaysia和TRX

有关隆新高铁(HSR)开跑、TRX、Bandar Malaysia及KL Metropolis发展的报道,将市场焦点再度转移至吉隆坡市中心。

尽管市场上出现了高档住宅房产供应过剩的忧虑,但这些房产的价格已经企稳,业主要求的售价也变得更加贴近市况。
2. 已经成熟城镇应关注

建议地点:Cheras、Kepong、Sentul、Jalan Kuching、Jalan Ipoh、Selayang 和Old Klang Road

庞大的人口和良好的便利设施,将持续支撑这些成熟地区的增长。

在过去房地产领域的蓬勃周期时,许多人都在追求更新和更有趣的产业,因而忽略了这些地区。

不过,在下行周期时,房屋买家(尤其是想要买来自住的买家)会回归基本面,并倾向在本身熟悉、价格较可负担和具有完善便利设施的地区置业。
3. 继续南移

建议地点:Kajang、Semenyih、Sepang、Kota Warisan、Cyberjaya、Putrajaya和Bangi

随着越来越多高速公路的提升与建设,巴生谷或大吉隆坡的南部地区已不再是离吉隆坡市中心或Petaling Jaya很遥远的偏僻地区。

而且,著名发展商在这些地区的新市镇项目逐步成型,也巩固了买家的信心,并促使更多人对这些地区改观。

对投资者而言,这些新市镇的房价相较低廉,因此有望提供“低买高卖”的投资良机。
4. 紧跟MRT或LRT路线

建议地点:Ara Damansara、Tropicana、Kota Damansara、Mutiara Damansara、Bandar Utama和Kwasa Damansara

公共交通系统愈加完善,促使买家拥有更多置业的选择,不必被限制在工作地点附近苦寻房子,反而可将目光投向其他地区,例如毗邻MRT或LRT站的地区。

同时,公共交通系统附近的产业将迎来强劲的租赁需求,尤其是那些坐落在步行距离内的房屋。
5.新城镇与大型发展项目催化

建议地点:Klang、Shah Alam、Teluk Panglima Garang、Bukit Jalil、Ijok、Rawang和Kundang

高速公路提高了这些地区的连接与便利程度,加上当地具有更多、更大的发展空间及优势,因而吸引了许多发展商的目光。

CONGRATULATIONS! So you have finally sealed the deal on your new home. Now, how much should you spend on renovations before moving in?

Truth be told, hacking at and tearing down walls of a newly-bought property are a norm these days, be it a brand new or lived-in unit.

How extensive the renovations should be would rest on the new owner’s investment objective; why he or she bought the property in the first place. Unless the intention is to flip the unit as quickly as possible, do expect owners to invest in some form of renovation works, or at least fit-outs for especially the high-rise units, which face renovation restrictions and limitations.

Space utilisation is very individualistic and personal. Not only do needs and wants vary from family to family, diverse views are common within a family. Understanding this, some developers have been known to walk the extra mile by offering customers varied layout options of the plan – that is, before construction work starts. Unfortunately, such customisation options could and would develop into a pretty nightmarish experience for both the developer and the buyer in mass housing.

The government is open to lifting the ban on the Developer Interest Bearing Scheme (DIBS) in the housing market ifthere are compelling reasons, according to the Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Ministry.

“There are some suggestions made by the industry, we will look into it. There are pros and cons, there’s no hard and fast rule on this. If it is not abused, it’s a tool for everybody to sell their houses and to make it more affordable for the people,” said its Minister Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan.

The housing ministry will look into this on case-by-case basis, he told the media at the 17th National Housing & Property Summit held yesterday.

“If there are some indicators that DIBS can reintroduced we have no problem with it but the most important thing is we must be flexible and nimble,” he added.

But Chang Kim Loong, Secretary-general of the National House Buyers Association, stands firm on his belief that DIBS should be permanently banned as it promotes speculation.

“In the event of an economic downturn, banks saddled with too much DIBS end-financing could collapse as the losses from such DIBS end-financing will erode the banks’ capital,” he added.

On the other hand, MKH Bhd’s Group Managing Director Tan Sri Eddy Chen is hopeful that DIBS will be reintroduced but with limitations to prevent abuses.

Notably, Prime Minister Najib outlawed DIBS during his Budget 2014 announcement. However, some property players suggested that first-time home buyers should be allowed to participate in this scheme.

second hand property

  1. If there is an immediate need to use or rent out the property, then the secondary market is more suited.
  2. Since rental is almost instant and can service your bank loan, your borrowing limit will not be affected. You are able to borrow more.
  3. If you are the sort of person who prefers to buy property “as it is”, then a second hand property is the best.
  4. The ‘as it is’ concept reduces risks and surprises.
  5. Over the last 2-3 years, the secondary market has lagged behind the developer’s market. Prices are 10% to 20% cheaper compared to newer developments in the same location.

GE-13 2

GE13 has concluded, the new government had been sworn in, and the time for campaigning and voting come to an end.it is now time for us to refocus our sights on the market on large.

The post-election market performance has been very positive and is a sign of trust in a stable government. The government has also delivered good results over the years in keeping Malaysia as one of the economic leaders in South East Asia. Since the result of the GE13 was announced, the KLCI has increased by 89 point (or 5.5%) and the Ringgit has appreciate against all major currencies.

Projects that have been mooted before the election, such as the LRT extensions and the High-speed Rail, are expected to kick full steam ahead. Affordable housing and other real estate issues are also high on the to-do list for the re-elected government.

Some of the key issues the government is expected to push ahead are to rehabilitate low cost houses and flats, maintain public housing infrastructure, provide high quality housing for the younger generations, as well as improving transportation links between the city centres and the suburban areas.

The issue of affordable housing is of particular concerned and has dominated the market over the past years. Schemes such as PR1MA are steps in the right direction, but would require refinement to see them better serve their intended purposes.

Restarting abandoned projects will also help those buyers whom have been affected while reducing the number of unsightly half completed buildings dotting the city skyline.

Increasing the efficiency of the public transportation system will also help address the housing issue as people will be more willing to locate to new suburban areas with the help of pack & ship companies. It also helps reduce congestion in the city centre.

These steps will greatly lift urban well-being as well as address some of the discontent of the people that has swelled up over the past years.

KUALA LUMPUR, June 13 (Bernama) — Cyberjaya, the ‘Silicon Valley of Malaysia’, is an attractive investment destination for European businesses, InvestKL and the European Union (EU) said in a joint statement.

Ambassador and Head of the European Union Delegation to Malaysia, Luc Vandebon, said the EU and its member states had worked closely with Malaysia at a federal level, but these initiatives needed to be brought to life on-the-ground through closer engagement with Malaysia agencies like InvestKL as well as local businesses.

“Our visit today showcased a number of the technological advancements being made by multinational companies operating in this hub and this is prime example of where EU multinational companies can use this hub successfully to support their business growth for the Asean region and globally,” he said.

So what should you do if you are young and thinking about investing in properties?

 

Do you ever ask yourself; should I be investing in property at all, and what can I expect to get from it? If it is the road to quick riches that you are seeking, then this is not the right path to take.

 

Yes, we have seen some huge run-up in prices over the years, and it is true that property prices, like the economy, tend to run in cycles. As such, we will obviously see more price increases in years to come, despite the current negative sentiment enveloping much of the globe.

 

There is a whole bunch of other factors pointing to future price increases too. In some cities, the lack of new building stock will keep the supply lower than it should be, yet the population continues to grow and so does demand. However, do not bet everything on this happening. Instead, expect to see, over a longer period of time, steady increases with plenty of troughs along the way as the economic cycle rises and falls.

Property buying tips

Buying a property may be a most expensive product that every one going to purchase, so before you actually make such important decision, here are some of the guide line and tips that you may go through.

Make sure you visit the area where you plan to buy. It sounds obvious, but many people are pressured into buying at property shows before even setting foot in Malaysia. Don’t be seduced by promises of rising prices. Just because developers are raising the prices of new flats it does not mean there is a genuine market in second-hand properties. Indeed, they may actually be changing hands for substantially less money than off-plan ones

Talk to people who have already bought in the development or in the area to see if they are happy. Internet chatrooms can be a source of useful information — although bear in mind some contributors may have axes to grind.
Choose your property carefully. Be prepared to pay a little more to buy a flat on the beachfront or in a better location. It will hold its value better and be far easier to let than a property in the middle of nowhere

Beware of so-called ‘rental guarantees’. Be sure of who is making the guarantee and what you can do if they don’t honour it. Some unscrupulous developers will offer a 10% return for the first few years to make the property look more attractive — and will have simply inflated the sale price accordingly. Some developers even offer ‘rental guarantees’ for up to 13 years at 8% and you need to be aware that these offers cannot make sense for anyone except the developer.

As new office towers and commercial squares continue to sprout up across Klang Valley and other parts of Malaysia. However, many people inevitably wonder if there is indeed such strong demand in the market to warrant these new development and what the rapid increase in supply would mean for the market.

 

Vision 2020 has long outlined Malaysia’s aim to become a development nation by 2020 and with the deadline drawing ever closer, the government has sped up its effort to attract foreign investments as well as to develop Malaysia as the region’s economic and trade center.

 

The push has prompted many developers to increase the supply of office and commercial properties, but some investors are lamenting the inflated price and subsequently low yield.

 

Latest figures from the National Property Information Center (NAPIC) show that residential properties still top the sales charts. On the other hand, sales of office spaces has been decreasing year on year with some developments seeing take up rate as low as 50%.
