In my opinion, I believe that more people will continue to choose to buy property rather than rent. This inclination is rooted in our cultural and societal perspectives. In our culture, there's a belief that a house holds immense significance in one's life, with some equating a house to the concept of home itself. The absence of a house is often seen as the absence of a home. Moreover, various government policies are structured to incentivise property ownership. For instance, policies like the exemption of Stamp Duty for first-time homebuyers purchasing properties below MYR500,000 and affordable housing schemes like PR1MA are designed to stimulate interest and facilitate property ownership.”

The most significant challenge I face is navigating through periods when our marketing endeavours fall short of expectations, despite numerous adjustments. These phases, which can persist for weeks or months, directly impact sales and conversions, presenting a substantial hurdle. In response, I adopt a resilient approach. During these downtimes, I prioritise self-reflection, maintaining composure while meticulously reviewing potential oversights. Collaborating with my team, I firmly believe in internal adjustments before seeking external results. I recognise this cyclical nature as inherent to the real estate profession. Consequently, when faced with similar challenges, we engage in a deliberate process of observation, review, adjustment and continuous improvement. This commitment to introspection and adaptability defines us as resilient and effective real estate professionals.”

“I would assert that both buying and renting property are equally in high demand in the current market. People who opt for buying property seek equity over time, viewing it as a long-term investment. Homeownership provides a sense of stability, privacy and high living quality, offering the freedom to customise and personalise one's living space. On the other hand, renting offers greater flexibility, allowing individuals to easily relocate for work or personal reasons. With lower initial costs, renting typically requires a smaller upfront financial commitment than purchasing a home. Nowadays, people also rent properties for investment purposes, such as using platforms like Airbnb for homestays.

“The choice between buying and renting will continue to be influenced by economic conditions, housing market trends, individual financial situations, and lifestyle preferences. Some may choose to buy for long-term stability and investment, while others may opt to rent for flexibility and to avoid the responsibilities associated with homeownership. Both options have their merits and the decision should align with one's unique circumstances and goals.”

“Furthermore, I will persist in disseminating real estate knowledge through various media channels, reaching a broader audience.

“Regardless of whether people are living in a property they bought or are renting, they often plan to eventually buy a property. One of the primary motivations is the opportunity to build equity at an early stage. With each mortgage payment, homeowners increase their ownership stake in the property. As a long-term investment, property values tend to appreciate over time, enabling individuals to build wealth. Real estate has also historically served as a hedge against inflation, as property values often increase with inflation, providing a level of financial protection.

“In contrast to renting, where landlords can increase rent at the end of a lease, mortgage payments on fixed-rate loans remain constant, offering a stable and predictable housing cost. Additionally, homeownership opens the possibility of generating rental income, either from a portion or the entire property. This flexibility allows individuals to choose to stay in their property for an extended period or sell it when life circumstances change. Moreover, the incentive of mortgage interest deductions makes buying more financially appealing. Lastly, homeownership can function as a form of inheritance, enabling individuals to pass on the property to their children or beneficiaries. All these factors collectively contribute to the attractiveness of homeownership.
