With one of the highest levels of income per capita in Southeast Asia, Malaysia has expanded its real estate sector to provide housing, office and commercial properties to a growing middle-class. The larger urban areas have attracted most investments, but recent economic and political change modify the property landscape. Despite this, the Malaysian real estate sector has faced tough times and especially the calendar years 2014 and 2015 were not favourable for the real estate industry in the country. After two unfavourable years, the Malaysian real estate sector is expected to pick pace by the end of 2016.The real estate market in Malaysia is poised for growth at an estimated CAGR of XX.X% over the forecast period, from 2016 to 2021. The projected market value of the Malaysian real estate sector in 2021 is USD XXXX.XX million.
In Malaysia, the difference between the rich and poor is on the decline, leading to a growing middle-class population that can afford to buy own properties. This is the major driver for the real estate sector in Malaysia. The younger population is still leading the new household formation. Malaysia’s property price index has been steady over the years, despite constant hiccups in the real estate market, globally. Malaysia, currently, has one of the cheapest prices in the region, which attracts more foreign investments in the region.
Restraints and Challenges
A consistent fall in the price of ringgit is the biggest restraint for the sector in Malaysia. It is not only slashing the purchasing power of all the locals but also the weaker Malaysian ringgit is rising the cost of properties in the country. This has turned out to be good for the neighboring countries like Singapore, whose currency is placed much better than the Malaysian ringgit, allowing the people of Singapore to buy properties in Malaysia at cheaper costs. Furthermore, the GST (goods and services tax) has led to the increase in the cost of building materials, further adding to the challenges faced by the sector.
Investing in real estate is considered as one of the best investments, globally. The size and scale of the real estate market make it an attractive and lucrative market for many investors, who can invest directly in the physical real estate or choose to invest indirectly through managed funds. Investing directly in real estate involves purchasing residential or commercial properties to generate income or for resale at a future time. Though it is evident that currently, the Malaysian market is struggling, like in the case of some developed economies, once the Malaysian economy stabilizes its real estate sector would experience growth.
