When it comes to buying a home, certain areas are way more popular than the rest. Meanwhile when an area is popular, it will attract more attention, more recommendations from friends and definitely higher pricing as well.

Buy based on why, not based on where

Whether the area is popular or not popular is secondary to WHY we want to buy. If an area which is not stated within the top 5 list above fits all criteria to buy like close to the working place, close to the children’s school and even nearby the mother-in-law’s home whose cooking is extraordinary, then please skip the top 5 areas and buy where it is better for ourselves. This is also one way we could skip paying higher for an area just because it is a popular choice among more Malaysians.

How to start searching for the home we truly like? Here’s one way.

List down the places you would need to go on a daily basis. Then, choose an area you love a lot. Use google map and look at all the areas which you will be driving through from this area you love to those places. Start your search for homes along the neighbourhoods which you will pass through as you drive. Once you have found a few, search the prices and the types of homes available. By doing this, your search for a home becomes more objective as well because the truth is, we are usually irrational. Happy searching.
