Khalil Adis is an established author and the founder of Khalil Adis Consultancy PLT based in Singapore.

To date, he has published two books - 'Get It Right Iskandar' and 'Property Buying for Gen Y' - and is preparing an upcoming book.

In the interview, he talks about wealth accumulation for different generations, in particular, Gen Y and the possibility of an economic crisis that would define the new normal for all of us.

He elaborates on the likelihood of property prices falling and highlights which market segments buyers should focus on, primary (new projects) or secondary (sub-sale).

Khalil shares advice on how Gen Y can develop self-reliant skills as well as how to accumulate real estate asset wealth despite financial constraints. 

He answers the million-dollar question on the first property a home buyer should consider buying.

Not to be missed is when Khalil points out key growth areas in Malaysia, including an area touted as the next 'Kuala Lumpur' based on the development masterplan.
