If economic crisis hits us, where is the property hotspot for investment? Will you still go for luxury condos in KLCC and Mont’ Kiara? To play safe, Ho Chin Soon votes for ‘landed property’.
As we can see, even the value in some suburban locations is holding very well. Mr. Ho will be reviewing these locations in his presentation at The Edge Investment Forum on Real Estate 2009.
According to his observation, the last two recessions have shown timing to be critical factor in property investment.
“Timing has to be one of the pillars of the real estate mantra. So, we have to change our mindset and accept the fact that the old mantra of ‘location, location and location’ is not good enough. The new mantra should be ‘location, timing and branding.”
Besides, here are some interest topics from Ho Chin Soon in coming Investment Forum:
- Updated timing charts
- Explain why the property cycle is different this time around
- What some branded developers are up to in the current tough market
