would have wanted to know specifics about the KL real estate loss as the title suggests! But still a good read!

Losses would be from sharp depreciation in the Ringgit, which is not discussed.

If the guy was in his mid-20s in the 1970s, then how can he be in his late 50s now?

If the guy was in his mid-20s 26 years ago, how can he be in his late 50s now?

Were the major risks that cause huge losses the ones under construction, hence the risk of not completing the property? Were there major losses in completed properties that were greater than the losses incurred for the uncompleted ones?

Complete bullshit article by “Cheryl”. How is it possible for someone who started in the 1970s to have 26 years of investing experience? What is this, the year 2000?

Hi Centaurus, thanks for pointing the typos out. We’ve made the relevant corrections. We’d like to assure you that this article is legitimate, and we do have a writer called Cheryl.

All of our articles are authentic, but sometimes we do want to be more deliberately vague on some personal information as some investors can be understandably concerned about privacy. They do not receive any benefit from providing their insights as well, and so we do our best to provide as much information to you, our readers. We hope this clarifies. Thank you.

I was drawn to the captioned headline of losing 1m in KL Property but couldn’t find any elaboration on this mistake by the author. Investing in property is somewhat a timing game and also you’ve to be ready for it whatever comes after the purchase. I’ve made so may mistakes investing in at least 4 properties in Msia but still it does not deter me from looking for more

Is it really necessary to take a dig at Malaysian developers especially since the article is a clickbait and didn’t even discuss about KL real estate.
