Malaysia Housing Market The housing market is like any other market - it consists of buyers and sellers who come together to agree a price for a transaction. In some respects that is where the similarity ends. Houses come in all shapes and sizes and represent the biggest single purchase most people will make in their lifetime. It is also the place where we live and raise families and also has to be somewhere convenient for work, school, and college and so on. As a result it is something to which we have a considerable emotional and physical attachment. This can mean that the normal factors that influence supply and demand take on different degrees of significance. For example, houses are not very mobile things and so the supply of them tends to be affected in a different way than some other types of product.
You should produce a report of between 1500 and 2000 words that outlines the following:
The key factors influencing the housing market ( demand factors and supply factors) in Malaysia The main trends in the housing market in the last 5 years An evaluation of future trends in the housing market in Malaysia.
