  1. Hello!

    I am Japanese that is living in Shanghai, China. I am planning to move to Johor Bahru(with my family), and also planning to purchase a real estate for my self to live, and some for lease.

    Your comments in the colum impressed me, and I wanted to hear your opinion, if you would purchase one real estate for investment, which one whould you buy?

    Thank you very much & regards,

    1. I haven’t really examined it so I can’t say with any degree of sense. Most investors I read about online seem to be going for bungalows or link houses. I think I might, look at condos, if I were investing. But there are at least 2 big issues. First the minimum for a foreign investor is RM 500,000 – I think the best condo investment might be for places less than that. Second, the property manager of the condo is very important: that the price is reasonable, that they do the proper maintenance and do it well, may have unexpected assessments (for some major repair or renovation. Also with condos parking may become more of an issue as more tenants (in each unit) want to have cars: especially if mass transit isn’t dramatically improved.

      Horizon Hills definitely seems like a very popular place though. Many investors seem to have picked houses their to invest in and it is definitely work looking into, I think.

  2. Do people buy Horizon Hills for investment or weekend home ? or to stay in ? If its for investment or weekend home, the entire estate will be quiet and lonely on weekdays. Would it be too lonely, safe ?

    Majority buying HH are foreigners and the prices have gone up by about 40 – 45% ! Hence, would it be likely to see prices appreciating over the long term ? In addition, if the area is more affordable and attractive for foreigners, will it be a target zone for robbery ? Thanks for any response.

  3. You should consider the houses in Taman Sutere Utama instead. The build quality there is good and the price is right. It’s in very close proximity to Horizon Hills.
