I’ve already written a complete article about how you can buy residential property in Malaysia as a foreigner.
Buying commercial property is less spoken about, especially in the media, but it can bring you great yields.
The regulations differ a bit from buying residential property, there are also some key considerations you need to understand before buying, for example the importance of location.
In this article, I explain how it works when buying commercial property in Malaysia, one of the most developed countries in Southeast Asia.
Can foreigners buy commercial property in Malaysia?
Malaysia is famous for being one of the most foreign friendly countries when it comes to buying property in Asia.
You have no particular restrictions to buy residential property and commercial property, you only need to deal with some minimum investment requirements, there are also some land types that are reserved for Bumiputera only.
When it comes to commercial property, the minimum investment doesn’t apply to the whole of the country whatsoever, but in places where the buying pressure is slightly higher, like in Kuala Lumpur.
Even if there’s Bumiputera reserved land, you have a number of other land types available.
