Penang in Malaysia is a small state with amazing beaches, excellent food, well equipped healthcare services and various public amenities, making it great for housing investment, and a good retirement destination.
So if you’re ready to invest in a property in Penang, consider the following before you do:
- Only invest in an area that you are familiar with
- Learn and ask about property investment but don't follow the advice blindly
- Trust your instincts. This means that if you are not sure about buying a property, it’s better not to do it; there is always another property that can meet all your expectations.
There are two sides in Penang: the island and the mainland. The trend right now is moving towards the mainland due to mostly the escalating housing price in the island. Moreover, People are looking for gated and guarded housing so keep that in mind if you are buying a property for investment purpose.
If you are buying the property for yourself, always consider school and work before you make a decision. There is no right or wrong, only your individual preference. But these are the most important factors to consider.
