I think this is one of the lowest attendance for the last 5 years period. Moreover most of the superpower developer were not involve.

too many projects launch for the past few years and ppl have overbought and running out of cash.....

Well there are 2 possibilities at least
1) Too many property fairs in recent months before the PIP. No excitement already.
2) Wait and see attitude from buyers due to pending change in policy to cool market

But if you really look around the offerings on the projects are more or less the same from major developers....they just carry their showcase and models around. Elit 2 seems to create some excitement with Jusco model. The rest are mainly mainland or the Balik Pulau stuffs....not seeing major offering. Giving these conditions properties in prime area would see upside due to limited supply.

Those cash rich buyers should wait. If Loan to Value is reduced to 70-80% (for the 3rd property onwards), it will create competition among the banks. I guess the banks have to offer better rate to stay profitable.

Do you think the current property market is a serious state when the Prime Miniters also recognizes and talks about it?

I don't think the speculation is serious (no doubt we have seen an increased level of speculation), but you definitely wouldn't want to wait til it gets serious before doing something.

Otherwise a bubble might build up, and any anti-speculative move by the authority by then would "burst" the bubble, causing great financial instability (like what happened in the US).

So I definitely agree with a pre-emptive (pro-active) action now, rather than a re-active action later on.
