Properties in Johor has long been a hot topic amongst Malaysians and foreigners in recent years. In 2019, Johor remains the state with the highest overhang units in the whole of Malaysia and it’s partly due to the massive price tag that comes with it. 

The good news is, while there are lots of units that are selling at a higher price range, there are affordable options too. In fact, the National Property Information Centre (NAPIC) reported that the median house price in Johor in 2019 is only RM350,000! So yes, it is possible to get a house within your budget here. 

With that in mind, we set up a quest to hunt down affordable properties in Johor, namely properties that are below RM400,000 and here’s what we found:
