    No need to buy affordable housing. Penang house no one buy now. Already grinding to a halt. No transaction at all. All condo in Penang will become affordable soon. And the affordable house will drop to low cost price.

    @testmenow
    don’t be so bad hearted la…if you say so, people thinking to buy affordable housing also will hold back to wait. How if the price does not drop? by that time they missed the chance to buy affordable…and the are not afford to buy from private project…

    just like few year back, a lot of people say price will drop…A lot of ppl keep waiting…until today..the price just keep increasing….you people really “hai si lang”….

    During the good times, even the lousy ones can close deals easily. During the bad times, only the good ones will survive, lousy ones will have plenty of idle time commenting in property blogs!..Hahahahaha….

    Hi All,

    As simply statement, the condo is oversupply than demand, and without the strong demand of business activity to support on it.

    Hi testmenow,

    Your statement is not substance at all, i think you may need to study the basic of economic to understand the market. unless, you like a day dream all along. : )

    James, since you already said oversupply and Penang economy is getting worse every year, I believe you are in agreement with testmenow.

    @Mau beli
    In reality, it is oversupply as a matter of fact for condo, what i meant is .. the strong business activity is always the criteria for high real demand of property transaction, it is the basic, but it doesn’t mean that it will be zero transaction with this statement ” Penang house no one buy now. Already grinding to a halt. No transaction at all” as highlighted by testmenow, it is the point.

    @James
    Since Penang economy is getting worse, and you say that property depend on economy, it’s actually almost as bad as what he said.

    @Mau beli
    I didn’t say Penang economic is getting worse, what i am trying to say is.. ultimately, property market is rely on economic as a basic concept in term of supply and demand. whether it is bad or not, i don’t have much comment, you judge it by yourself. please don’t take it for granted from my comment : ) , you may misunderstood.
