The Unhealthy Property Development in Ipoh, Perak?



Ipoh is a beautiful city located in Perak state. It is widely well-known to be a food heaven and a perfect retiring spot! The environment there is still not too developed. However, recently, when I make trip back to Ipoh, it seems to be developing quite fast. There are so many shop lots and cars in Ipoh now!

Well, it is kinda great to see such development; but, I felt sad to see the gradual increase in pollution around the city. Then, the biggest issue comes to my mind. Despite all the happening events in Ipoh, the price of material, food, transportation and houses is also increasing.

For instance, the mee I usual eat was just around RM2. Now, it already sky-rocketed to RM5 (almost equivalent to KL rate). Anyway, the most outrageous is the newly-built houses in Ipoh. Well, I don't want to mention which developer, but, in such ways, it actually puts heavy burden on fresh graduates and other working people. In Ipoh, it is not easy to find a high-paid job! Now, the salary didn't increase for years, but the houses' price are extremely expensive!

Now, 1stly, I think almost whole Malaysia's properties are like increasing crazily!!!!! @@~ This of course also affects Ipoh's property to increase. But, does Ipoh have that many people to buy property??? Is it necessary to build so many houses there? Is the population in Ipoh increasing? A semi-D in Ipoh is more expensive than in places like Serdang ---- around RM700k...A bit speechless when I read the advertisement! A bungalow cost RM 1 million @@~~~~~~~WOW, Ipoh, i thought is one of the poorest cities in the country....

If a fresh graduate just got a job with salary of RM 2500, is he or she capable to the houses in Ipoh? NO ~~~~~~~ Since the houses here is almost equivalent to KL, why don't people buy in KL? Therefore, instead of letting the developers keep on building non-stop, government should really take time to review such development whether is healthy or not. At least, they should control the volume and the price of the house. If too many houses are built with less demand, it would only cost the price of the houses to fall! If too few houses are built, it would cost the price to shoot as high as Mount KK!

And, lastly, Ipoh is such a  beautiful place with quite a lot of natural heritage! I hope that government should provide proper planning on the development!!!!!!! Don't just build for the sake of development and economy! Environment is still the most important!

I am sorry, but can you justify your sentence? Quote : WOW, Ipoh, i thought is one of the poorest cities in the country....
I think its high time the peoples of Ipoh enjoy some good time. It is developing fast, but a lonnnggg way to go before they catch up with Klang Valley or Penang. They finally have a new shopping complex after almost a decade!! And these things go hand-in-hand, friend. I am not saying over-pricing the houses are correct, but there are people who could afford such homes, and that is the reason why developer dare to put up such price-tags. Ipoh is not a poor city. In my opinion, many Ipoh-ians have fled to either KL, Penang and JB as the grass seemed greener on their end. But they (those who remain here) are all pretty well-to-do, and they just dont know how to spend their money.

Perhaps you are right, I heard that there is a million-RM condo coming soon in Ipoh. It is best to enjoy. But, the food and stuffs there shud be well-moderated. In Spore, even though the houses are crazy expensive, you can see find 2 Spore dollar chicken rice there. If that is the case, why Ipoh hv to be developed in such an imbalance way~take it steady in moderate pace is the wise way of development.

Anyhow, this is juz my own opinion ;)
