    Good to invest in JB houses?

    Bros / Sis

    Please advice with our exorbitant property prices in SG, is JB property the way to go?

    Saw HORIZON HILLS on web and look like a good place to buy and stay there. Any advice?

    HORIZON HILLS

    been there, the built quality is good but below expectation especially for the RM$800k above units.
    check out east ledang, ledang heights and puteri harbour.
    since you mentioned investment, the target buyers are sporean and expats so the unit that you choose ie location, exclusivity, security, surroundings, road connectivity, etc are critical

    Bang for bucks, yes big land/size and near to singapore, etc. However I know during Dr mahathir regime, there were many cases of hiccup in construction of the houses, blah blah blah. The worst I ever heard was the parliament passed a bill backdated a few years to tax foreign investors. Many Singaporeans got their fingers burnt and was forced to sell cheaply to Malaysians. Forgot the name of the project, it was quite a big hoo hah during 90s. Dunno abt the current Najib regime, he looks like a good PM.

    Stay away from JB, unless you don't mind getting your house plundered.

    I was also thinking the same. Stay JB, work in SG. Anyone doing this already?

    Heard SGrensd who buy B homes must pay M$10k as levy. All else seems the same.

    I not scared of gangster. I keep a parang in my car.
    ANG MO KIO AND TANJONG PAGAR MRT STATIONS INSTALLING "TRAFFIC LIGHTS" INSIDE THE STATIONS. Red Light means train delays expected.

    If I still want to wait and board the train and walk through the red light, will I kena 12 demerit points for 'beating red light'?
