This is what an RM 800,000 home looks like in Klang Valley

From two-storey terrace to a serviced apartment, find out what kind of property you can get with an RM 800,000 budget. 

Millennials, raise your hands if you’ve been personally victimised by baby boomers telling you things like “When I was your age, I was already married with 5 kids and I owned my own house” or “If you cut down the number of bubble tea drinks you buy in a week, you would have been able to afford a house by now”. 

But here’s the thing, finding a home you love can be HARD in this day and age, regardless of your age and the amount of bubble tea you drink — especially when you’re on a budget. So I took to iProperty’s listings to see what kind of property I could get with a budget of RM 800,000 in Klang Valley – and the results may surprise you…
