Found a "Short Cut" in Property Investment
One of the "mistake" I have made is "miss out" investment opportunity for "YTL Midfields". I was in the launch during that day, which is super packed, as the developer offer good discount for the first batch buyer. If I am not wrong, is about 7-8% discount, and price around RM200k per unit.
I decided not to invest there as the area is less desired, near Salak South, leasehold land, nearby high tension cable and next to highway (noise).
NOW, I revisit the place, the condo is almost complete and I am actually quite impress with the outlook, it look nice. Heard that the property now hitting around RM400k++ !!! Is double the sales price, and few thousand percent of ROI if you calculate it based on investment capital putting in (low down payment)
So, why I can miss out such good investment opportunity during that time? I recalled whenever there is new property launch, I will visit the sales gallery, do site survey, evaluate the pro and con for each property. Usually, there will be more con than pro, and this hesitation make me "stop" from investing from certain good investment...like MidFields is one of them.
So, now, how can I avoid repeat the same mistake like this again in future? I can't simply whack without research right?
After trace back all the investment record, property launch history, I found one shortcut for good investment. Instead of research yourself, just put your faith in "well known" and reputable developer hand, like YTL. By seeing the history, most of YTL property will double upon completion. Few example as Midfields, LakeEdge Puchong, Sentul Tamarind & Saffron, Pantai Centrio and so forth. "You come, you see, you invest", just whack it.
