A Glimpse at Malaysia’s Property Market: By AVID Estates (interview)

u-kian-chong

Malaysia is a great place to invest in property, in fact, it’s also a place where you could actually consider residing long term.

Most people know that KL is the capital and where things “happen”, while Penang is the place where foreign retirees flock in masses.

But I think it would be great to invite a local expert, so he can give his thoughts on the most promising areas in Malaysia.

Therefore, I contacted U Kian Chong.

He’s the CEO of Avid Estates, a boutique real estate agency in Malaysia with a team of almost 30 people, which is focused on high-end properties in Kuala Lumpur.

Let’s see what he has to say.

U Kian, you’re an engineer like myself who decided to engage in the real estate business instead. Can you tell us more about yourself and your current business?

Although I obtained a first class honours degree in Chemical Engineering from the UK, I worked as a commercial engineer upon my graduation and spent about 8 years in the Oil & Gas construction industry in Malaysia.

I was really exposed to the estate agency business by accident and was coaxed by a friend to join. However, due to my love for architecture and interior design, and my natural interest in property investment, it was an easy decision to make.

This was 13 years ago now and I’m still as passionate about real estate and the agency business as I was on Day 1.

How has the Malaysian property market performed recently? Is now the right time to buy, or should people wait?
