Paper house under a magnifying lens

Snippets of potential first-time home buyers’ expectations

By: Yanika Liew

As Malaysia continues to see a recovering property market, developers are seeing increased interest from young home buyers and growing families as we have entered the endemic stage of the Covid-19 outbreak. With the ever-shifting economic state of the country, buyers’ tastes will continue to change and develop. Here are some of the comments from StarProperty’s survey:

 "I would be interested in an affordable home (under RM300,000), that is close to a public transport station (MRT or LRT) for ease of access. Because I am still a low-income earner, it is impossible for me to afford a home that is more luxurious or has a fantastic view. I am also open to a sub-sale home because such older developments are more strategically located. I find that most new developments are further away from the city. If I have a bit more money, I would be interested in a landed home in Petaling Jaya. It would be nice to have a bit of space for myself, but that is still a long way to go."

“One of the criteria for property buying for me would definitely be a bright house with good ventilation as I have lived in a condominium with poor ventilation that has moulding issues. Preferably service apartments and condominiums for the security too. A good view would be optional but I prefer not to have the view facing a busy street or highway as it can get very noisy. I would also prefer one nearby a public transport station as I take the train to work daily.”

“I am looking for a condo that's in a suburban neighbourhood but not too secluded that it's too far away from a city or town shop lots. Preferably with at least a nice pool, playground and maybe a gym as facilities. I don't really mind on what floor but I prefer higher floors after staying on the 26th floor in my current condo for the past 10 years.”

“Preferably condos with facilities away from my workplace, perhaps within or nearby a forest area. Facilities as it is to keep up with a healthy lifestyle, and away from my workplace where I have a clear disconnection from my office work.”

"Homes with a view because I would like to create my own space with a nice view. It matters to me when it comes to the preparation of the day, you wake up in the morning to a nice view, the air you breathe is sweeter than usual too. The way you start your day is important to the progress of the day. And it would be great to come back home to a nice view too.”

“Apartments are preferred because they're small, cosy and easy to clean. It has to be far enough from the city to be away from the hustle and bustle but near enough to a well-stocked mall with lots of variety so that I don't actually have to go anywhere else. It should be within walking distance to the LRT station so I won't need a car to get there. I'd like for the apartment to also be overlooking a protected mangrove or forest area nearby - it'd be nice to know that not the whole area will be demolished for development. Basically, an area with everything I need in it: a good shopping mall, a protected forest area, good access to public transport and away from traffic jams.”
