Are people still buying in Iskandar properties? How about those people who hold to places like Setia properties? Can they sell?
my advice is do your homework before you invest.
If they are so good - the local would have brought them, or some big investors - why asking small monkeys like you all to invest ?
I have friends that did business & buy properties oversea and have learn painful lessons of - money and properties get struck there.
Remember - a country like china and malaysia laws can change over night - they can suddenly change policy of foreign ownership of house or withdraw of money. You may find your house and money suddenly lock up and untouchable.
