Property market Malaysia in your opinion?

What is your thought about property market Malaysia? Has it been affected by the many comments in your social media account from all your friends? Maybe it’s all doom and gloom? Or maybe it’s all fine and dandy? Are you in any decision stage for any property? Or you are part of the group who would only buy when the property market has collapsed and you could pick up great undervalued buys?

What is certain is that we have close to 200,000 residential property transactions in 2021 despite the many closures and lockdowns. Let’s hope that with the current move towards endemicity, the number of property transactions would also rise in tandem. If the number rises, it could also be considered as a move towards normalisation as well. Exciting times ahead I feel. As for property prices, I still wish it would just move slowly. No rush, it’s okay.
