ISKANDAR PUTERI: A project featuring waterfront villas in a Caribbean tropical setting, with private berth (dock) and swimming pool to boot, has taken property development sector in the country up a notch.
Spanning 44.92ha, the Emerald Bay project comprises freehold bungalows, semi-detached and courtyard homes as well as medium-rise condominiums, ideally located along the shore of the Johor Straits.
The first-of-its-kind project in the country is developed by Haute Property Sdn Bhd, a joint venture between BRDB Developments Sdn Bhd and UEM Sunrise Bhd.
Haute Property chief executive officer Teh Ku Yong said the project was intricately planned to deliver a premium waterfront living in a nature-inspired sanctuary surrounded by open space, water, sea breeze and lush tropical green landscaping.

PROPERTY transaction costs and taxation are becoming increasingly important considerations for investors. Global consultancy Knight Frank in its recently launched Global Tax Report developed jointly with Ernst & Young revealed that indicative property tax costs can range from as low as 3.5% or 3.6% of the property price in Monaco and Dubai, respectively, to over 30% in Sao Paulo.
To make comparisons of property taxes and costs in various countries, the analysts assumed that a non-resident investor has a sum of money (US$1 million or US$10 million) to invest in property overseas. The purchase, holding and disposal costs of owning a property over five years were then calculated.
The report analysed the costs that a foreign individual would have to bear when buying a US$1 million or US$10 million property as an investment, and renting it out over a five-year period.
