Yeah, this is not the usual property ads we see on the internet.
Just recently (March 2019), an ad has been circulating on Facebook and it has garnered many netizens’ attention because the property on sale is not a house nor a shop, but an island.
Das right, the island listed in the ad is Pulau Mantukud located in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah and the asking price is RM20 million! Of course, you can still negotiate with the agent for the best price!
According to the ad, the island is a freehold private island measuring about 16 acres. It is said to be suitable for resort development or for investment purposes. Of course, you can buy it and develop the island according to your taste as long as you have permit from the authorities. Here are some of the reasons why someone would pay a fortune for a private island:
- It offers way more privacy than properties on the mainland.
- Since the number of private islands on sale is limited, owning one would make you feel more exclusive!
- Some say time moves slower when you’re on your own island because you get to do what you love and you ain’t got nothing to worry about!
As much as we love to live on our own island, we have to be realistic as well. The RM20 million price tag is just too much for the majority of Malaysians. It was never targetted towards the average Malaysian anyway…
“If I pay RM20 million for the island, I may have to pay RM10 million to Abu Sayyaf,” a netizen jokingly said, considering a number of shootings and kidnapping have happened before in the east coast of Sabah by the Philippines terrorists.
This is certainly an interesting ad. If you can afford an island, would you buy one? Tell us what you think in the comments!
