For prospective home-owners and property investors, Malaysia offers a goldmine of affordable properties from flats to high-end condos to gated houses to shoplots to land and more. For a good markdown, a property auction is the place to go to.
If you are in the U.S., Outer banks foreclosures would have opened up opportunities for the purchase of cheaper properties for anyone looking out for one in North Carolina or thereabouts.
Foreclosures don't seem like a positive term but when it comes to buying cheaper properties, foreclosures can be turned into something positive. I hope you find your dream house for your dream home. Happy house-hunting!
