"It is easy to succeed in real estate investment if you have discipline to take a long-term view, find opportunities to add value and be patient yet decisive," shared BKP's Group Managing Director, NK Tong, at The Edge Investment Forum on Real Estate 2010 in Sime Darby Convention Centre recently. Speaking to a full house of over 500 participants, NK believes that real estate should form part of any investor's portfolio. He explained that in every property decision made, there are many views to consider.

One crucial aspect of investing in real estate is the objective of the investment - whether the property is for personal use, for investment returns or both, as well as whether it is for capital appreciation, rental yield or both.

As for property hot spots, NK believed that any property in any location at the right price with an attractive yield is a potential hot spot.

"The key to long term sucess is to take the original intended time frame of investment and double or triple it. The long term view favours every successful investor," concluded NK.
