Story of a Zimbabwe student’shostel living experience in Malaysia.

Moving to Malaysia from Zimbabwe was a daunting experience. I travelled alone for the first time in my life, and had to move my entire life by myself. I was terrified, to say the least. Due to a lack of knowledge about any facilities in Malaysia, I was encouraged to stay at the university accommodation.

Factors affecting rental prices.

Whether you are someone looking for a property to rent or to post a property to let, one important question is “What’s the correct price?”. As a landlord or agent, it is important to price it appropriately for rent seeker, or risk wasting valuable time and money just to end up with no taker.
