According to Terrence Lim, the director of Magna Putih as stated in The Edge, investment of properties in Penang can be called 'evergreen', although it is one of the property hotspots in Malaysia besides Kuala Lumpur and Johor, as the prices of properties in Penang is never dropping. The price could stay stagnant for more than a year but never drop due to the fact that most buyers in the land of Penang are Penangites themselves. Therefore, it is possible for one to own a spacious enclave in the middle of city amenities at reasonable and affordable price in Penang compared to Kuala Lumpur.
