Notes:

  1. The data from JPPH officially records a property transaction once the stamp duty for the Sales and Purchase Agreement has been paid, which is why the review period ends in September 2017 as the data from JPPH has not been released yet. Analytics are based on the data available at the date of publication and may be subject to revision as and when more data becomes available.
  2. The capital growth value shown is the average capital appreciation of all transactions within the project/scheme throughout the review period.
  3. Residential projects with less than 10 transactions were not taken into consideration when selecting the top 5 winners of each category.

 

To conclude

It’s of no surprise that of the five winning condos, four of them are located in Klang Valley, whereas the top spot goes to Melaka. In the terrace homes category though, potential investors should consider investing in the up-and-coming state of Johor, since it fills four of the five spots. If you’re looking to take up a loan and start investing, make sure you use an accurate and reliable tool to check for your eligibility first!
