Johor, Malaysia

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.

Bad management site.
Irresponsibility service.
All problem need owner settle byself.
Never buy MB PROJECT AGAIN!

Good design marred by poor project management leading to late construction. Developer rushed things on the final lap to avoid Paying LD compensation for late delivery. The result - what a waste of good design. The facilities are not fully operational when CCC was issued. How could the independant architecht have approved a partially completed building?

Secure apartment as it requires access card to access specific floor.
Very windy at facilities floor and Sky Garden.
The car park area very narrow, especially the entrance at the back.
Just be careful when you turning into car park area.

Luxurious residential condominium near Johor Bahru city, in a most happening strip akin to Kuala Lumpur's Bukit Bintang. Plenty of entertainment, food and conveniences. Condo is equipped with facilities such as swimming pool, billiard room, games room, gymnasium, even a karaoke room. Great for long or short term stay. Understand that a number of units are used as AirBnB.
