I am of opinion that the landscape of malaysia economy is evolving very fast. The wealth is transfer from the group of lower income to middle income, and from the middle income to group of rich. With asset (especially land and house) appreciated very high and fast, we may face the situation something like Hong Kong and Singapore, where lower income and middle income group struggle to own a shelter. While the rich enjoy the most as their asset being land, house or share appreciate substantially. If this situation persist for years, it is very dangerous to those did not own any asset. Keeping cash is something not wise, provided you are prepared to snatch some asset if prices corrected.
Some think that property market today is a bubble, i do agreed partially especially those recently launched high rises. However, material prices and land cost also increase recently although is not as high as the property prices. I will not surprise if Bank Negara implement more control on property purchase.
I am worrying for those do not own any asset being share or property. Asset free person going to lose the most as asset price keep on inflated. It is true that the market can move up and go down, but if you failed to capitalize, then how? Because property is trending up over long term. Similar to good stocks also, long term it is trending up.
I am of opinion owning asset is way to move ahead. At least you get hurt some and gain some.
