Please allow me to add 2 cent's worth.
Talking about property auctions, there are many credible property auction data banks which provide up to the detailed level of information including POS (proclamation of sales, auctioner's name etc.)
One can see that Semenyih is one of the areas with low number of auction listings. One of the said data bank is : http://www.lelongtips.com.my
. This is a paid data bank which gives one the detail information incl POS, advisory of auction processes, title search etc). There are other credible sites as well.
Quick glance (based on lelong data as of 2/12):
Semenyih - 30
Ampang - 53
Puchong - 50
Petaling Jaya - 70
Cyberjaya - 16
Seremban - 69
Sri petaling - 1
Seri kembangan - 36
etc - ?
I'd like to suggest to reference data & statistics to form a more solid ground of deliberation. And, some action houses may be able to provide the market trend of past transacted auction deals, transacted price, auction, volume and by by areas etc.
P.S : Auction is actually an opportunity for salient property investors to have high yields investment returns, provided he/she is sharp in seeing the trend and have tones of money to hold / floor stock his/her property inventory. A good property investor will look at his/her borrowing cost (interest cost), market fluctuation, market supply/demands, interest rate hike etc when investing in property; be it auction, sub sale or new properties.
Please ignore if my views aren't making sense.
Although semenyih has less auctions. It also has less units sold vis a vis many of the other areas. Which have condominium prpkects with thousands of units per project.
Odd that cyberjaya has the 2nd least auctions though.
