When and Where to Focus Your Listings in June 2021

Summary June 2021

As Malaysians brave through yet another lockdown, we hope you continue to stay safe, stay positive and stay centered among the uncertainties.

With everyone mandated to stay home, you can expect property seekers to rely heavily on online platforms and virtual channels for their home buying journey. To help you optimize your Auto-Repost and Spotlight listings, let’s look at property seekers behaviour in the past month.  

Key Highlights of PMI Q2 2021

ICYMI, here’s a summary of our Property Market Index Q2 2021 which tracks the asking price and supply trend across Malaysia.

 Pic 1

Overall median asking prices psf dropped by 1.79% YoY and 0.84% QoQ as a result of recent COVID-19 infection spikes and ongoing pandemic-related uncertainty, but increased vaccinations are expected to bring more stability as the year progresses.

Selangor was the only state that recorded positive price movement in Q1 2021, suggesting it is likely to stay on this course in Q2 2021.

In contrast, Johor’s downward trend of asking prices has been accelerating since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, having the sharpest drop in asking prices among the four key regions, falling by 1.36% QoQ and 5.66% YoY in Q1 2021.

Overall supply of new property in the market spiked by 15.85% YoY in Q1 2021. This is the highest volume of supply growth recorded since Q1 2020, prior to when the full impact of the pandemic was felt in the market.

Penang recorded the highest spike in yearly supply volume, registering a 34.17% YoY increase. This is also the third consecutive quarter of positive supply growth for Penang. In reverse, Johor is the only region that experienced a property supply shrink in the first quarter of the year by 3.55% QoQ.
