Kajendra Pathmanathan BRDB Developments Sdn Bhd CEO
“We foresee the market to remain challenging. With rising supply over demand as well as the current political and economic weather, we understand the need to be cautious. The notion of ‘let’s wait and see’ will still linger in the minds of property buyers. However, we are more confident about the market for the second half of the year.
It is an ideal time to buy because of the soft market especially when there are a lot of options on offer. Buying a property is always a great investment and price will appreciate when the economy is better.
In terms of preferred properties by purchasers, this very much depends on the location. Some areas tend to favour high-rise properties because of the demographics and demands, while others like Rawang will still have the majority opting for landed properties as their preferred choice.
It is imperative to align our goals and aspiration for the betterment of the country. Looking at the state of housing in Malaysia, be it affordable or premium, we must progress to understand the real needs and wants of the people.
In an era of enhanced transparency, clear accountability, an adherence to meritocracy and of conscience, all parties including BRDB will need to work together to shape a better environment in anticipation of a new, mature, socially harmonious and economically independent Malaysia.”
