Property Market Still Promising

Despite the challenging headwinds ahead, the mid-term prospects for the Malaysian real estate market is still encouraging and promising.

Mr Lee Heng Guie, an independent economist stated that Malaysia is not heading for an economic recession, therefore he believes a drastic fall in property prices is less likely to happen although the property prices would be easing further.

Since real estate market is falling, buyers are given more opportunities to invest on properties. For foreign buyers, the depreciation of currency further encourages them to invest on Malaysian properties.

Lee said the local property market was still hampered by affordability issues, weak economic growth as well as cautious sentiment. Domestic interest rate in 2017 is expected to rise, thus this may discourages buyers from investing. Likewise, the banks are expected to maintain vigilance in the evaluation of property loans while ensuring the good credit-worthy borrowers will continue accessing to home financing.

Lee hoped that the property cooling measures would be effective. The right time to alter some of the measures is when the market equilibrium is stable and sustainable. The real estate sector should not be over-adjusted.

Lee thinks that the authorities should monitor closely the supply and demand level to prevent properties from over-supply, as well as avoid systemic risk to the banking sector, in an event of a severe correction in property prices and prolonged economic slowdown. Furthermore, the national bank should the banking institutions continue to loan to those qualified borrowers.

Besides, for the first time home buyer and for the property priced below RM 1 million, government should offer them fiscal incentives such as stamp duty relief and developers' interest bearing schemes.
