A stellar line-up of speakers and real estate experts came to share and discuss on how to maximise property investment opportunities, overcome challenges in the market, as well as the current Malaysian property trends.
PropertyGuru’s flagship event, The Malaysia Property Show (MPS) ended its final stretch of its exhibition series of the year with a bang! The two-day event held in Suntec Singapore saw over 450 homebuyers under-one roof making their next investment move with confidence.
Dr Tan Tee Khoon, Country Manager of PropertyGuru Group Singapore, was joined by over 25 agents at the exclusive MPS Agent Networking Brunch which kick-started the event and later joined by Mr Muhammad Radzi Jamaludin, The Malaysian Deputy High Commissioner, for a complete walkthrough to meet and mingle with participating developers, who are also PropertyGuru’s very own award winners.
Apart from developers showcasing their projects, MPS hosted a stellar line-up of speakers and real estate experts to share and discuss on how to maximise property investment opportunities, overcome challenges in the market, as well as the current Malaysian property trends.
Ikhram Merican, Managing Director of Living Space Ventures Sdn Bhd believes that “Risk is in the name of the game” as he shared his “Tried and Tested Steps to a Solid Airbnb Venture.”
More and more property investors today are looking towards Airbnb to generate cash flow, and it is very important for one to formulate cohesive and good Airbnb strategies to do well.
“If you are planning on venturing into Airbnb, you need to know how to steer through the challenges, take advantage of the opportunities out there and understand the strategies that you should employ today” shared Ikhram.
“Property investment can be risky and how you approach it changes that risk. If you have a long-term outlook and a solid understanding of the cash flow, you have already mitigated a significant portion of the risk.”
Ikhram Merican was later joined by Moderator, Khalil Adis, Director of Khalil Adis Consultancy Pte Ltd, panellists; KK Goh, Property Investor, Mentor and Coach of Awesome Alliance Pte Ltd and Nagarajan Prakash, KRSC Lead of Economic Prosperity Iskandar Regional Development Authority (IRDA) for a fruitful Investors Circle Panel Discussion titled, Top Tips for a Profitable Investment.
Due to the proximity of Malaysia to Singapore, the growing number of Singaporean investors looking to invest across the causeway has increased as Malaysia remains to be one of the world’s top five countries to retire in according to the Global Retirement Index for 2018.
President of Malaysia My Second Home Agent Association (MM2HAA), Lim Kok Sai joined us on day-two to address the Expectations and Advantages of Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) Program.
Just like the famous Charles Dickens’ novel “A tale of two cities,” Johor Bahru has become a retirement hotspot for many Singaporean investors as it has become a more familiar environment, culture and one that is closer to home.
Lim provided insights and specifications of the criteria to be eligible for the MM2H programme as well as highlighted incentives under the programme which includes, a 10 Year Social Visit Visa (renewable), Residential Property Purchases with terms and conditions, Tax-Free Income from abroad, Children Education and Business Investment Opportunities.
Since the new Government take-over, Malaysia’s GDP is to grow between 4.5% and 5.5% for the 2018-2020 period. While the market stabilizes, PropertyGuru’s H2 2018 Consumer Sentiment Survey showed overall satisfaction with the real estate climate at 43%, the highest it has ever seen since 2013.
As such, it is safe to say that now is a good time to invest in Malaysian properties and The Malaysia Property Show (MPS) will continue to be a trusted platform to help property investors make an informed and profitable investment.
On behalf of PropertyGuru, we would like to thank all developers, partners, speakers and attendees for making MPS a resounding success. We hope to see you next year!
