I love all these real estate quotes. What’s your favourite one?

Do you have a favourite real estate quote?

Yes, already tells you that the founder loves both coffee and property too. However, as you can find here: Personal Finance, I do write a lot of non-property investment articles too. The reason is a simple one, beyond just property investment, I believe investment diversification is super important. Let’s not have all eggs in the same basket yeah. One of the very first property quote I love the most since very long time ago is this one: “Don’t wait to buy real estate, buy real estate and wait.” Was true then, still true today and will be true tomorrow too.

Don’t believe me? Who cares? Just remember to read more and believe the advanced property markets yeah. Malaysian property market is not leading everyone, we are just following the trend of advanced property markets. High-rise units did not become popular in Malaysia first. It became popular overseas, where people get to enjoy infinity swimming pools… then it got built here.

Townships in suburbs also did not start from Malaysia. It started in all those markets where the city centre has become too expensive and everyone started to stay further away. That’s how suburban centres start to happen. Hope everyone realise by now that being behind other advanced property markets is an advantage yeah. We get to learn what happens next before it happens here.

Today, I share another three real estate quotes I love a lot.

#1 – Home is an invention on which no one has yet improved – Ann Douglas

What Ann is saying is that even if we are to argue that rental is better than buying, we would STILL need a home to rent! Even if we are to argue that with the new norm people will prefer to stay in landed and not high-rise, both are still homes. Even if we argue that there are a lot of other investments which is better than real estate, both sides need a place to sleep every night. Thanks for understanding.

#2 – Some people look for a beautiful place, others make a beautiful place – Hazrat Inayat Khan

What Hazrat is saying is something all of us need to really understand. It’s really not whether the home is big or small. It’s not whether the home has lots of facilities or just a simple apartment. It’s not whether it’s next to a mall or next to the train station. A home becomes a home sweet home when we make it a home sweet home. Remember, that dream home will keep changing as we continue to earn more money but that comfortable feeling when you reach home? That stays the same thing we want, forever.

#3 Home is the nicest word there is – Laura Ingalls Wilder

This is a WOW quote. Every time I flew to some destinations out of Malaysia, I miss Malaysian food. As I take Malaysia Airlines as much as I could, this would be the words from the flight crew when we have touched down. “To all fellow Malaysians, welcome home.” WOW. This is home. It’s not just the country which is home. My family is also a home I could always go back to. No judgements, just love, just care and just acceptance. I repeat. Home is the nicest word there is.

For all other very nice quotes which are not among the top 3 for me, please do read them here: All the quotes can be found here at Happy enjoying all of them.
