We’ve combed through our past discussion topics to find those that were most favoured by posters (and commenters), and inspired an abundance of lively conversations – PropSocial’s version of People’s Choice Awards, if you will. Enjoy the read!
1. FOOD!!! (Why, of course)
Those living in Malaysia might occasionally gripe about traffic conditions, perhaps even about the sweltering hot weather and torrential downpours, but if there is one topic that evokes a positive reaction from most, if not all, Malaysians, it’s food. Generally, readers do not mind putting their two cents in about eateries they’ve tried – not to mention uploading images they’ve taken there before starting their feast.
In fact, when this topic was started on our PropSocial discussion board, even we were surprised by the response!
2. Current Property Market Sentiment
It is no new revelation that the world of property is a complex one. Good advice can be hard to come by, often leaving the uninitiated confused and disoriented. Thus, most property buyers appreciate it when property experts or seasoned investors offer advice based on their analysis and years of experience.
3. Banks and Housing Loans
Personal banking is yet another world filled with complicated terms and baffling acronyms – DSR, CCRIS, CTOS and MLTA, just to name a few. It is no surprise that posts about navigating various banking matters are hugely popular in property-related discussions.
4. Goods and Services Tax (GST)
Implemented on 1 April 2015, the GST tax caused general consumers and property buyers to unite in their displeasure at the sudden increase in their expenses. For months, GST became the favourite conversation topic for consumers standing in supermarket lines, chatting over meals, and of course, in online forums…
The long-awaited completion of the LRT – or at least part of it – is finally here! While consumers are starting to use the service, on the whole people are still very much used to driving. Read about the how the new transport system might affect property prices, and decide for yourself if this government initiative deserves a yay or a nay.
This topic has generated the most discussions from property hunters / buyers / investors looking for any form or location of property investments with the highest returns. Experienced seasoned investors, experts and property agents also offer their insider lowdown, making PropSocial’s discussion board a healthy ecosystem to raise and discuss common interests :)
7. Real Estate Agents / Negotiators
A topic that is relevant for property buyers, investors and agents alike.
8. Shocking News
Studies show that readers seem to respond quicker to negative words than positive ones. Why is this? We don’t know the exact answer, but what we do know is that news revolving around topics like horror, abandoned projects, crime, scams and accidents never fails to attract public attention…
9. Renovation & Home Design
As a house does not automatically become a comfy and liveable home, design and renovation tips are extremely popular with new homeowners preparing to move into their new place, and even seasoned homeowners looking for new ideas.
