Property is like the stock market; you have dozens of different classes. With property you have residential homes, hotels, commercial building, industry and etc.
A bank will lend you money to buy a MYR 200,000 house, but the same bank will not lend you MYR 200,000 to buy shares. This is because property is an asset, which can be sold to pay off the loan. So, you no need to worry so much with the financial assistance if you really make decision to buy a property for investment.
As you can see, property market boom over coupled of years. With making money property, the rental income that gained should ideally be sufficient to cover the cost of financing and maintaining. With the steady increase in property price, property investment provides a safer way to grow your wealth.
Furthermore, you can make more money in property than stock market. The value might be appreciated especially in the fast growing areas such as popular region and under development area. On the other side, you can earn nothing or lost in the stock market if buying at a wrong period. However, there may have some risks for property investment due to fire & natural disaster. But insurance can protects it while there is no insurance for stocks.
