Marsha Lu, who is the head of the legal, diligence and compliance department at Property Frontiers, claimed that while Malaysia has not been as popular as Thailand in the past, the latter has experienced political instability recently.

Particularly in the past few months, difficulty in completing transactions has fuelled expectations that prices will start heading south. In the capital markets, the value of Japanese real estate investment trusts (J-Reits) has plummeted in recent months, leaving many trading well below their net asset value.

The slowdown in the US, coupled with a rapid appreciation of the yen, is hurting the country’s exporters, which have been important drivers of growth.
