  • Thanks for the reference to my blog. Really appreciate that. 🙂 For me, I’m investing in Penang as I”m also staying there. 🙂

  • I would suggest maybe should take capital of each state to compare instead of average per state?

    Average may not be true 🙂

  • ChampDog, of course I’ll link back as I get the data from your blog. I’m looking at Selangor area.

    insane, that is the only data that I can find, courtesy of ChampDog.

  • Good info for property investor.

    Wonder why Negri Sembilan is not a good location as it is near to KL?

    Anyone have any ideas?
