FAR Capital’s Strategy in Singapore

At FAR Capital, our mission in the Singapore market is clear. We want to provide Singaporean citizens with the chance to explore undervalued property opportunities.

So, to bring this vision to life, we’ve launched our Meet & Greet events initiative in 2023. These events serve as a platform for fostering connections and opening doors to valuable property insights.

Our commitment to the Singapore market is driven by a dual purpose.

Firstly, we aim to prevent Singaporean investors from potential pitfalls and put a stop to Singapore prospects from falling victim to Malaysian property scams.

As evident below, this is a case involving a significant property scam that occurred in Malaysia, resulting in a huge financial loss.

This highlights our strong commitment to educating the Singaporean market about the Malaysian property market, to prevent them from falling into similar traps.

By organizing Meet & Greet events, we create a space for Singapore citizens to discover these opportunities, empowering them with insights into properties that may have been missed.

Revealing 3 hard truths about owning Malaysia property

Owning property in Malaysia can be a great investment, but let’s face some hard truths that could reshape your investment mindset:

  • EVERY SGD1,000 salary: RM500,000 Malaysia wealth:

Well, brace yourself – for every SGD 1,000 in your salary, there’s a potential to build RM 500,000 in Malaysia’s wealth. It means you might miss out on maximizing the benefits of your hard work in Singapore. It’s not just an opportunity; it’s your right to secure a future beyond mediocre middle-class retirement.

  • Owning HDB in Singapore will be easier when you know the rules:

Here are the tips – owning property in Malaysia doesn’t close the door on your HDB dreams in Singapore. It can make the journey easier. Navigating the rules strategically can lead to the best of both worlds. You actually can own both. The HDB property in Singapore and also property in Malaysia. Why settle for one when you can enjoy the benefits of owning in both Malaysia and Singapore?

  • Inexperienced individuals may face financial losses due to RM depreciation:

Financial losses due to RM depreciation can be a concern for the inexperienced. The key lies in choosing the right properties in Malaysia and adopting the best strategy. Eliminate the risk of RM depreciation by using strategies that align with your investment goals.

It isn’t just about owning a property; it’s about mastering the strategic investment in Malaysia.

However, if you’re a Singaporean thinking about going into Malaysia’s property, you might be wondering;

“How do I make sure I don’t end up losing money?”

It’s a real concern because lots of individuals from Singapore face challenges when they step into Malaysian real estate.

Reasons why Singaporean lose money when investing in Malaysia properties
Reasons why Singaporean lose money when investing in Malaysia properties

People losing money because they don’t know the ultimate strategies on how to invest in Malaysia. They have zero knowledge about the market, the people and demand

The key, as explained by Faizul Ridzuan, is to change their Singaporean perspective. Let’s break down the reasons why people are struggling:

  • Singapore mindset

They are using the Singaporean mindset when buying properties. They think tenant behaviour, product perception, buying behaviour and property prices are the same as the Singapore market.

  • Herd Mentality

Buying blindly when everyone else is buying even at inflated prices, but being afraid to purchase when things are available at 50%-70% off and no one else is buying. It is important to buy when no one is buying.

P/S: Almost everything that a local developer trying to sell in Singapore is unwanted stock.

  • Entry & Exit

Often emotional entry leads to emotional exits. The timing went wrong in both entry and exit. They buy into the future, a few years too early.

  • Economics

They should consider these questions before buying. Who will be buying this from them? How big is the demand? Who is their competition within a similar category? What’s the total current and upcoming supply? Who is going to rent from them?

  • Price

Often overpay due to entry and upkeeping costs due to incorrect understanding of the local market.

Remember! It is crucial to make money on the buy.

So, as you know what are the perspectives that you have to change for you to succeed in Malaysian property investment, let’s go further into amusing facts about Malaysian property.

Surprising facts about Malaysian property

  • Zero down capital.

Malaysia is currently the only country in Asia where one can own multiple properties with little to no capital. However, this may also be subject to change in the future.

  • Historically Malaysian properties have outperformed Singapore properties in the last 30 years.

Despite political instability, RM depreciation, racial and cultural issues, and other factors, Malaysian properties have generally outperformed Singapore properties in the last 30 years.

  • There’s a risk-free option available today

You can secure the right to purchase at today’s price and walk away if you are not making money, realizing it to be a poor investment.

  • Overhang means: below replacement cost

Are you aware that today you can buy properties below their replacement cost? This is made possible by a phenomenon called impairment by listed property developers. How about owning a luxury condo with a sea view for under SGD 170 per square foot?

You may not be wise if you fail to realise this: It is your birthright, and you can legally engage in multiple opportunities

For Singaporeans, these are the opportunities that you should grab;

  • Why choose when you can do both?

As a Singaporean permanent resident, you possess a distinct advantage in the real estate market. Seize this arbitrage opportunity that enables you to purchase properties in Malaysia and Singapore effortlessly. Diversify your investments and expand your property portfolio with ease.

  • Use cashback to buy property in Singapore.

Invest in Malaysian property and use the cashback advantage to cover 20% of the upfront capital required for a property in Singapore. This presents an excellent opportunity for those who lack the initial capital.

  • Invest in luxury condos in Malaysia.

When you retire, you don’t have to settle for a small house in Singapore. Instead, you can invest in luxury condos in Malaysia and enjoy a high-quality lifestyle. Simultaneously, you can rent your Singapore property and earn a steady SGD 3000, providing greater financial freedom.

Expanding beyond Singapore: FAR Capital’s operations in Indonesia

Exciting news! FAR Capital is now not just in Singapore but also in Indonesia. We’ve got around 30 local employees there, and we own a foreign PT. Plus, we’re making waves in the media – Detik, one of the big online companies in Indo, has noticed and given us coverage.

But here’s the real game-changer – our awesome collab with Indonesia’s no.1 university, UI in Depok. After months of hard work, we’ve teamed up to solve the student housing problem. UI even put their asset management arm into this because there will be 260 apartments versus 10,000 new students every year. Simple math, right? Supply meets demand.

Our goal is to make things better for the Indonesian property market, just like we’ve been doing in Malaysia. Making homes more affordable – that’s what FAR Capital is all about.
