Kamarulzaman, Norazlin (2016) A study of the factors affecting the growth in real estate investment in Malaysia / Norazlin Kamarulzaman. [Student Project] (Unpublished)


Briefly, the Malaysian economy is expected to be resilient and still show significant growth while the global economy gives cause for concern on several fronts. Real estate investment refers as "real estate market" that represents a significant portion of people's wealth and becomes true for many real estate investors in Malaysia. This plays an important role in providing employment opportunities, improving income distribution, offering shelter to households and reduced poverty. However, the real estate investment in Malaysia continues to drop due to some factors that affect the sector. Malaysia had faces economic headwinds due to natural disaster and some political issues that resulted in the plunging value of ringgit. Hence, foreign investors have a lack of confidence and not much interested to invest in real estate market especially when they have to put themselves at high risk. After the implementation of Good and Services Tax (GST) in the first quarter of year 2015, it causes a slowdown in domestic consumption and lower retail sales that makes the prices increased. The study investigated factors such as GDP Growth, the influence of interest rate, inflation rates and population growth.
