Spore property values not impacted by RTS Link JB to Spore

Singaporeans flock to Johor Bahru and other parts Malaysia for cheaper goods and services.

Malaysians are also frequent land commuters. Unsurprisingly, both the Woodlands & Tuas Checkpoints are frequently jammed.

But a major game changer is coming, and that’s the Johor Bahru Singapore Rapid Transit System(RTS) Link.

At the end of 2012, 65 per cent of the RTS Link’s four-carriage service was completed. It connects Singapore’s Woodlands North MRT to Johor Bahru Bukit Chgar Station. It’s expected to be operational by December of 2026.

The RTS Link serves up to 10,000 passengers per hour, in either direction. The estimated train journey time is approximately five minutes.

Due to the fact that the immigration facilities for Singapore and Malaysia will both be located at the same station, passengers are only required to clear immigration authorities when departing.

Shortly, travelling between Singapore and Johor Bahru may become much more convenient in the future.

Would Singapore’s real estate suffer if more people chose to live, work and enjoy themselves in Johor Bahru?

Singapore-based companies and/or private individuals can benefit from huge savings if they use real estate in Johor to build office spaces, warehouses or industrial facilities, homes or healthcare facilities.

RTS Link’s shift of demand from Singapore to Johor will not have a negative impact on the demand for Singapore property and its value.

Better connectivity between Singapore’s and Johor Bharu’s transport systems can encourage businesses in Singapore to expand and attract new business.

The business can accommodate staff in Singapore as well as Johor Bahru. A business can locate its staff in Singapore’s office space, which is much more expensive.

Johor Bahru can provide a cheaper alternative to the Singapore office. It is also easily accessible. The Johor Bahru location can house training and support functions or act as a back up office during disaster recovery.

Singapore may be a good choice for businesses looking to build warehouses or industrial facilities. The city has easy access to Singapore’s port and airport, as well as Johor’s low land prices and lower costs.

Johor-Singapore Special Economic Zones (JS-SEZ) will strengthen the business offer of Singapore and Johor if they become a reality. A JS-SEZ is a great way to improve cross-border trade and investment.

Second, an easy connection between Singapore, Johor, and Johor-Bahru will benefit both tourism and MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences, and exhibitions) in this area.

RTS Link can be used by tourists who would otherwise avoid Singapore due to the high cost of hotel rooms. Such day-trippers might patronise Singapore malls.

Importantly, selling Singapore and Johor Bahru jointly can increase Singapore’s appeal to tourists generally as well the Mice sector.

Singapore and Johor are both great places to visit. Depending on the budget and preference of visitors, they can choose from a variety of different types and sizes accommodation in Singapore and Johor.

Mice Activities are no different – the greater choice of venues, and more accommodation available when Singapore and Johor Bayru join forces can help attract this type of event against global competition.

Singapore and Johor bahru are a great combination that can bring in more visitors to this region.

Third, even if Singapore residents choose to live in Johor Bahru because of its lower living costs, they may still be able to benefit from the closer connectivity between Singapore and Johor Bahru.

After the RTS Link has been operational, living in Johor Bahru may be more appealing to many Singapore residents. If you live in Johor Bahru it is possible to send your kids to Singapore schools. Johor bahru can be a convenient place for those who want to work both remotely and at an actual office.

Singaporean retirees are likely to be content living in Johor Bahru. One could rent one’s Singapore property and live across Causeway. This would give you easy access to Singapore, whether it be for medical appointments or running errands.

Singapore’s growth prospects could be improved by closer collaboration with Johor. Singapore can mitigate the high costs of business that could hinder its economic growth by collaborating more closely with Johor.

A greater variety of housing in Singapore, or Johor Basru could be an attractive option for knowledge workers. Singapore may attract many knowledge workers who are happy to pay higher rents because the city is vibrant, cosmopolitan, and offers good public areas.
