Sabah, Malaysia

Sabah is one of the two states located in East Malaysia, occupying a significant portion of the Borneo region. This state is a renowned tourist hotspot globally, featuring Mount Kinabalu, the tallest mountain in Southeast Asia, and some of the world's best diving locations. Sabah's population of approximately 3.5 million is diverse, comprising ethnic groups such as Kadazan-Dusun, Bajau, Chinese, Malays, Murut, Filipinos, and Indonesians. Notably, Christianity is the major religion in this region, practiced widely among Sabah's indigenous communities.

The real estate market in Sabah is relatively vibrant compared to its East Malaysian counterpart, Sarawak, with particularly high activity in the capital city, Kota Kinabalu. Although property prices in Sabah are generally lower than in West Malaysia, foreign buyers are only permitted to purchase properties priced above RM1 million.

The following shows the residential property transactions in Sabah over the last few years:

Sabah's economy predominantly relies on tourism, given its global recognition as a destination with remarkable tourist attractions and its tropical climate enjoyed all year round. Mount Kinabalu, attracting climbers and hikers worldwide, and Sipadan Island, one of the world's best diving spots, are prime examples. Unfortunately, there has been a recent increase in kidnapping incidents involving Chinese tourists, leading to a significant drop in Chinese tourist arrivals. Despite these challenges, Sabah continues to be a sought-after destination for travellers globally, promising diverse natural beauty and adventure.

The entrance road to this apartment is very bad with many potholes. The apartment is not well-maintained due to slow actions from the management.
