  1. $100 Billion Chinese-Made City Near Singapore ‘Scares the Hell Out of Everybody’

    The landscaped lawns and flowering shrubs of Country Garden Holdings Co.’s huge property showroom in southern Malaysia end abruptly at a small wire fence. Beyond, a desert of dirt stretches into the distance, filled with cranes and piling towers that the Chinese developer is using to build a $100 billion city in the sea.

    While Chinese home buyers have sent prices soaring from Vancouver to Sydney, in this corner of Southeast Asia it’s China’s developers that are swamping the market, pushing prices lower with a glut of hundreds of thousands of new homes. They’re betting that the city of Johor Bahru, bordering Singapore, will eventually become the next Shenzhen.

    “These Chinese players build by the thousands at one go, and they scare the hell out of everybody,” said Siva Shanker, head of investments at Axis-REIT Managers Bhd. and a former president of the Malaysian Institute of Estate Agents. “God only knows who is going to buy all these units, and when it’s completed, the bigger question is, who is going to stay in them?”

  2. Investment haven in the making


    May 9, 2016 by iskandarinsider


    KUALA LUMPUR: Iskandar Malaysia in Johor is moving closer towards becoming a sustainable “international metropolis”, and spurring economic developments that actuate Malaysia’s global potential.   Analysts and industry observers are unanimous in that the business region is poised to be a haven for investments. After being left behind by property booms in Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Hong Kong and China over the years, Iskandar Malaysia is set to be one of the world’s fastest growing economic regions in the next 10 years. According to Iskandar Regional Development Authority (Irda) chief executive Datuk Ismail Ibrahim, the economic region, which is three times bigger than Singapore, had accumulated a total of RM202.45 billion in committed investments from 2006 until March. “Of the total, 51 per cent, or RM103.50 billion, represents investments that have been realised,” he told Business Times. Ismail said foreign investors contributed RM81.01 billion, or 40 per cent, to the total cumulative committed investments, while the remaining 60 per cent, or RM121.44 billion, was from local investors. PropertyGuru Malaysia country manager Sheldon Fernandez said many quarters’ perception of Iskandar Malaysia in the past was somewhat misguided. “The success of Iskandar Malaysia should not be viewed purely from the performance of its property market in the short term, but rather on a longer 10 to 20-year horizon and must include all its other components — industrial, commercial, business, foreign investments, technology and innovation,” he said. Sheldon added that the rise of Iskandar Malaysia should be viewed from how it transformed the landscape — bringing with it socio-economic prosperity to Johor and the southern region, with property forming only a part of the picture. “Such developments don’t happen overnight.

  3. Opportunities in a volatile market


    April 29, 2016 by iskandarinsider

    THE Malaysian property market has been on a downward slide for the past two years or so. With an uncertain economy and few signs of the property market bouncing back in the near term, are there still opportunities for investors?


    Sarena Cheah , Sunway Bhd managing director of the Property Development Division for Malaysia and Singapore, believes that property investments have always proved to be resilient across economic cycles and there will still be pockets of opportunities even in weak market conditions.

    “Properties within mature locations that are well served and connected will remain in demand. The completion of new transport infrastructure will add to the excitement of these locations,” says Cheah.
