Property Investment 101: When rates rise, buying falls. Financial logic, really.

Well, the answer depends. If you found a neighbour selling their home which is right next to your parents’ home and you want to be close to them because it’s now time to take care of them (since they have taken care of us for a very long time), then you would buy even if BNM increases the rates by 1 percent. Before you ask, but how much is this 1 percent increase? What if I could not afford this increase then? The calculation is right at the end of this article. In the mean time, take a look at what fluctuation in rate would do to the property transactions in the largest economy in the world. As at 2023, it is definitely still the United States yeah.

Train from KL to China. What do you think?

One major advantage of train versus plane is that with the train, the journey itself is an adventure. It’s really possible to visit 10 different places with a train journey of 1,000km versus a typical 1.5 hours journey via a plane and it’s just from destination A to B. Of course, the total duration via the train could be one whole day or more but that’s the beauty yeah. We have the convenience of visiting places along the train journey with every stop along the way.

We are only at the start of the recovery in 2022 but in 2022, KLIA has handled 25 million passengers. This is a super huge thing for the local economy yeah. Just imagine everyone spending just RM1,000 in their trip here or to any other local destinations. Then we use an economic multiplier effect of 4 and now we know why we need the tourism industry to prosper yeah.
