Property Hot Spots for Investment during Economic Recession

mont kiara kiara ville condominium penthouse kl view
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

    Hi All, can someone enlighten me about the profile of this person named Kam Wei Tsung. I will really like to know more about this person after having paid close to RM 4000 to be part of his Platinum Property Network. Nothing is happening yet for me after I signed up for more than a month now. No mailing list, nothing, nil. Can someone please, please enlighten me what add value he does for people who join his network?
