TERRACE HOUSES SOLD FOR RM1M! BUYERS CAMP FOR 10 NIGHTS TO BUY A NEW HOUSE! HOMES BECOMING TOO COSTLY FOR THE AVERAGE MALAYSIAN! These are just some of the headlines that in no small way reflect a recent real estate phenomenon characterised by spiraling property prices and Malaysians’ thirst for newly launched houses. The aim of this report is to help investors understand the real estate environment we are living in, what is likely to happen in the future and how to profit from this ever-dynamic real estate sector.
OSK Research predicted that, Malaysia’s property sector is set to see its biggest residential boom in a decade, led mainly by medium- to high-end landed properties.
The sector may peak sometime in 2012 to 2013 before going into a potential slump.
OSK Research said a major mass housing boom will likely occur in the first half of this decade. It added that the sector was already entering the early stage of a property “super cycle”.
Although the expected peak in 2012 – 2013 may have dire consequences, the phenomenal boom that immediately precedes it gives investors an excellent opportunity to profit from the trend for at least the next 12 months.
