SINGAPORE – Singaporeans are streets ahead of any other group of foreigners snapping up property developed by UEM Sunrise at Iskandar Malaysia.
They accounted for 74 per cent of purchases made at the various developments by non-Malaysians.
Most Singaporean buyers are people who go to Johor frequently for business and those wanting a weekend home, said UEM Sunrise chief executive Wan Abdullah Wan Ibrahim on Thursday.
“They buy more of the upmarket products, as foreigners can only buy units that are above RM500,000 (S$195,000), and they have been buying both landed homes and strata developments,” he added at a progress update of the Iskandar projects.
