Johor is a state of Malaysia that is located in the southern region of the country peninsula. Johor is one of the richest states in Malaysia in terms of GDP, as it is the only state that is located adjacent to Singapore. The population of Johor is around 4 millions, and has a population that consists of around 52% Malays, 33% Chinese, and 10% Indians. The public transportation here is almost non-existent except for some public buses, however its capital city Johor Bahru is located within walkable distance to Singapore.
As for the real estate market, Johor has one of the least affordable housing markets in the country due to it being adjacent to Singapore. Besides, the high property prices here are also due to the government's development of the Iskandar Economic Region, which promotes foreign direct investment into the state. Most of the foreign investments that flow into the state's real estate market come from China nationals and Singaporeans. As of May 2018, the state is now run by the Pakatan goverment for the first time after winning the 14th General Election of Malaysia.
The following shows the residential property transactions in Johor over the last few years:
Johor has mostly foreigner-friendly real estate investment policies by the state government, as foreigners can easily buy any residential properties here without any restrictions, as long as the price is above RM1 million. Besides, the state government has been partnering with China-based developers to build mega cities on reclamation land, whereby some are also duty-free such as Forest City.

There is not new condo can compare with this unique aged condo with center location and spacious living and bedrooms. Windy and no block. Good condo to recommend.
Both the D'esplanade Condominiums (freehold) and the KSL City Mall, adjacent to each other, were developed by Khoo Soon Lee (KSL). The convenient accessibility to the Mall by D'esplanade residents is made possible by a link-way within the Mall and D'esplanade, without having to step out of the building. It reminds me of the popular One World Hotel and One Utama Shopping Mall in Petaling Jaya which I often stay in whenever I travel to Kuala Lumpur. Living, shopping and having fun activities with family, friends or alone, are all under one roof every day without the hassles to go out after a day of hard work. It is a condominium which is worthwhile to buy and keep for retirement. Seeing so many elderly who lost their mobility, going out to the hair salons, restaurants, nail & toe manicure, cinemas, etc is a challenge. So don't you think it is a good place for your family with children and elderly too? A place is not to be judged by the price of it but rather the convenience it can offer the living. I strongly believe that KSL's D'esplanade is a place with many intangible benefits and the price should be way up above the current market price. What the condos need is a good and classier interior designing with more greens.
Do NOT let the Real Property Negotiators or Agents, AirBnB or tenants to determine the price of your place. Your D'esplanade condo deserves a much better value than you are seeing now.
Bos ada kosong lagi x
This property is an excellent value. Nearly half price of newly marketed units in the area.
