As at end-2019, he said, the number of overhang residential properties stood at about 35,000 units, while for serviced apartment/Soho/ Sovo commercial property it was about 20,000 units.
“In the Klang Valley, if there is no major correction of prices in serviced apartment/Soho/Sovo, it would take the next five years to clear.
“For residential units, there is still hope for the prices to go up as the properties could hedge against inflation from the long-term perspective,” he said, adding that this segment would probably take two years to clear.
