Investors from Singapore Looking Towards Malaysia

Please Share!

Malaysia has quickly become one of the most popular areas for Singaporean buyers. With residential and commercial real estate prices in Singapore skyrocketing, investors are looking to expand into cheaper regions. Malaysia is a popular choice due to its rather stable property market, and strong business values. Many investors feel that there is more opportunity to get more for their money in the neighboring country.

According to a conducted study in Singapore, almost forty percent of investors admitted to seriously considering putting their money into the Malaysian real estate market. What may be even more remarkable, however, is that more than half of that group said that they’d even consider buying property outright in Malaysia.

For some analysts, these findings do not come as a surprise. Singapore’s housing and property market has been incredibly volatile over the years, and with housing prices shooting up substantially, both residential and commercial properties are simply becoming unattainable and unaffordable. Many experts also feel that the inflation of prices at such a rapid rate could also cause a bubble to burst, sending those that chose to invest into disarray.

With its stability and much more affordable property prices, Malaysia has become the most logical choice for Singaporean investors. The question that should be asked, though, is whether or not these investors will be singing the same tune if Singapore’s property market levels, and prices drop to realistic, and more attainable levels. At this point, the answer to that question is not known, though the future will certainly hold the answer.
