Seven developers give their views on what lie ahead this year

Sunrise Berhad
Ms Anne Tong,  Asst GM, Branding and Community Development

Being rotational, the industry's supply and demand are driven by the market and external forces. Due to Malaysia's strong fundamentals, with strong controls and regulations by the relevant authorities, our land and property prices were mostly unaffected from the recent 2009 financial crisis faced by the world over. Provided that the needs of investors and customers are met, the Malaysian property market outlook in 2011 should remain attractive and will garner a healthy flow of investment options by investors and purchases by property owners, both local and foreign.

Sunway City Berhad
Mr Ho Hon Sang, MD, Property Development Division, Malaysia

2010 was indeed a good year due to the return of market confidence and easy payment schemes by developers. We remain optimistic of the market outlook for 2011. Moreover, we do not think that Malaysia will experience a property bubble due to the limited supply of land in prime areas and availability of liquidity at the banks and institutions such as the Employees’ Provident Fund (EPF). While the 70% cap on LVR will affect the property market, we do not foresee it to have an adverse impact. We believe buyers will continue to search for quality properties as they remain a safe and solid asset class. The latest round of quantitative easing by the US will see some funds inflow to this part of the world.

Mr Bernard Yong, Senior Manager, Marketing

As long as the macroeconomic conditions remain favourable, I foresee that the demand for quality residences and offices in the Klang Valley to continue growing unabated. A lot will hinge on the execution of the government’s GTP, ETP and Greater KL Transformation plans.

Sunsuria Group
Mr Simon Kwan, Director, Business Development

We think the outlook will be very positive with potentially high hopes.

Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Leong Hoy Kum, Group Chief Executive and Group MD

The property market has done well in 2010 and we foresee that the demand for properties with good concepts in strategic locations will be sustained in 2011. The conducive interest rate environment, healthy employment market and the fact that property investments have proven to be a reliable asset class will continue to sustain and drive this sector. 

Malaysia’s healthy economic performance and domestic initiatives such as Budget 2011 high impact projects that include the Mass Rapid Transit, the Greater Kuala Lumpur/Klang Valley and other infrastructure projects should continue to drive the market.

Azea Property Investment
Ms Tan Yang Poh, CEO 

Baring any major surprises like war breaking out in the Korean peninsula, this year’s property outlook remains positive. It’s good that the US and Europe are still recovering, so there is a lot of liquidity that is flowing into Asia looking for good investments. Additionally, the strong growth of the economy that Asia is experiencing will continue to create demand for properties. One of the key driving economic forces in Asia now is China. With its growth rate, the smaller distressed countries in Europe will not have a major impact in Asia.

So we are optimistic that after a short correction with the recent government announcement to curb property price increases and with the holiday season, the market will recover and continue its growth this year.

Crest Builder Holdings Berhad
Mr Eric Yong, Executive Director

For  2011, I see plenty of consolidations, privatizations, M &As and so on. I wonder if property giants S P Setia Bhd, who shares a similar majority shareholder in PNB – would merge with other listed property players whom PNB has large stakes in.

Of course there is a mega project to be looked at ie. the RM40 billion MRT.  I think there would be no one company that is strong enough to raise that amount of money to construct the MRT under the Private Finance Initiative method. Is this a possible likelihood? We shall wait and see.
