Build-then-sell in 2015?

Potential homebuyers looking at models of housing units at the Country Garden Danga Bay sales gallery in Johor Baru.

WE are close enough to 2015 that the market is already speculating on Budget 2015. April 1, 2015 will see the introduction of the consumption-based goods and services tax (GST).

While we are hopeful of a reduction of the corporate and personal income tax rate and even more hopefully for the adjustment to the real property gain tax in light of the imposition of the 6% GST, there are something else looming in the backdrop of all real estate investors and home buyers alike.
