Which housing market will be an instant beneficiary?
Chris Boyd, exec chairman of Savills Malaysia, states: "Research has actually shown that, initially, the best effect of HSR on home worths is seen around the stations at each end of the line. HSR tends to 'degree' values, as well as KL will be the most significant beneficiary."
A whole lot will certainly depend on the price of the price and frequency of the HSR train company as well, states Boyd. "There should be a lot of early morning and also evening companies with Japanese-style preparation," he states. Those stations in between communities such as Ayer Keroh, Batu Pahat as well as Muar may benefit the least. "Seremban and also Southern Johor might end up being supposed dorm residential areas," he adds to. "Nevertheless, that will just take place if the fare is economical."
Likewise for Singaporeans, the ticket price of a train ride on HSR will additionally be essential, according to Ivan Hoh, handling director of PropNex International.
Jurong– immediate beneficiary
