Drones over the hotspots of KL

By Nirmelraj Pathchimuthu

PETALING JAYA: WITH the advancements in technology, which has to lead to the introduction of consumer-grade drones for the mass market, Ho Chin Soon Research Sdn Bhd chairman Ho Chin Soon said agents should capitalise on this opportunity to market their properties better.

He added that by using a personal drone can be advantageous for agents as it allows for better aerial pictures and capture images from angles that are difficult to reach via conventional means.

The book also showed pre and post-development pictures of areas like the 2004 and 2006 development pictures of Mont Kiara, some of which were taken using drones.

He was presenting a talk on the hotspots of Kuala Lumpur and the means he used to capture the images of the hotspot, all of which can be found in his book during the Malaysian Institute of Estate Agents (MIEA) recently held its 32nd edition of Malaysian Annual Real Estate Convention, MAREC’18.

This event aimed to highlight issues facing the future of the real estate industry and how it real estate agents can overcome it.

Commenting on the book, Ho Chin Soon mentioned, “The book also analyses the commercial space. The fastest growing commercial space in KL is Mid Valley, KL Eco City and Bangsar South. These figures are generated by the Ho Chin Soon Research GIS maps. All information about the area will be available with a single click.”

“When talking about hotspots, we have to talk about visionary developers. These visionaries developers go places nobody dares, which transforms a location into something unique,” he added.


A house is a pillar of strength that unites the family, and this collective unit forms the backbone that defines the nation. Since the end of WWII and the beginning of our nation’s independence, the concept of housing has evolved over the years. From the emphasis on practicality and functionality, today's developments amalgamate the concept of living, accessibility, space and functionality into a harmonious union.
