With mounting concern and speculation about the impact of the recent Brexit vote on the global economy, Malaysian property remains among the top five choices for foreign investment in Southeast Asia.

This was evident at PropertyGuru’s recent Malaysia Property Show, held on 3 and 4 September at the Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel. The event drew more than 500 potential buyers who attended talks by key industry leaders and viewed prime properties by established Malaysian developers.

Companies that participated in the event included Mah Sing Group, Hatten Group, Ewein Zenith, Malaysian Resources Corporation, United Malayan Land and WCT Holdings.

“The number of attendees at the Malaysia Property Show looks encouraging for the property market. The topics covered at the seminar provided a wide spectrum of knowledge, from an update on regulations to potential investment returns. With the weakening of the Malaysian ringgit, I would encourage Singaporeans and foreign investors to take advantage of the Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) programme. The ongoing infrastructure development and the ‘investor-friendly’ atmosphere make it a good time now to invest in Malaysia,” said Datuk Steve Chong, Chairman of REHDA Johor.

Dr Tan Tee Khoon, Managing Director of KF Property Network Pte Ltd, added: “The Malaysia Property Show is an event that shares facts and information about the country. With the context of a stronger Singapore dollar against the ringgit, this year is a good time to invest in Malaysian property as the ringgit will not remain low at all times. In the long run, investors will be able to reap the benefits of capital appreciation from their investment.”
