Have you ever lived in a cramped space and forced to deal with annoying housemates who just don’t know when to keep it quiet (read: the one who’s constantly blasting music, even at odd hours)? If you answered “no”, well lucky you!

You see, having a landed property is not only about the space and privacy you need in order to stay sane, it’s also about the sense of community that you can foster with your neighbours, especially if it’s a terraced/linked type.

When you head out into your front yard for a bit of gardening or to wash your car, chances are high that you’ll run into your next-door neighbour, and you can exchange pleasantries with them. And then, during different festive seasons, everyone exchanges local delicacies while also looking out for each other’s homes!

Now, according to the PropertyGuru Malaysia Consumer Sentiment Study H2 2020, the findings indicate that the property type which most Malaysians reside in is terraced/linked properties, with 2 out of 5 respondents (39%) indicating so.

If you’re one of those who are still on the hunt for a new home, and a terrace house is right at the top of your list, we’ve got just the thing for you!

People nowadays are looking for terrace homes because of the greater convenience that comes with it (no strict management rules or maintenance fees), more personal space, and more space for their children/parents.

Those findings are based on the Consumer Sentiment Study, which is further echoed by Knight Frank Malaysia’s Real Estate Highlights H1 2020 research, stating that “Subject to affordability, Malaysians may prefer landed properties/low density developments with larger or more spacious layouts that come with extra room/study that can be converted into a home office, as working-from-home (WFH) may be a new normal”.

So, if you fit the bill of someone who values his/her privacy, loves the large amount of space for your own freedom to do what you wish, and have a flexible working schedule (thanks boss!), then a terraced home may be just the thing for you.
