Hi I am moving in from ME, with wife, 1 kid and parents. So looking for 4 bedrooms in either,
A. Services apartment
B. Condo - (how much is the cleaning service)
C. Detached house

How much should I consider as a rental budget?

Rental rate for A and B approximately MYR2,000 onwards
Cleaning services start from minimum MYR30 for 2 hours
Detached house from MYR3,000 onwards
If you stay further from KL city centre, price would be more affordable

Thank you Chong. If one does "But" vs. "Rent" analysis what would be better buying or renting
buying would be better option if you are planning to stay long term in Malaysia such as 5 to 10 years... however the initial cost of acquiring a property is 20-30 times higher than renting.. foreigners are only allowed to buy strata properties above MYR1million in KL and certain zon in Selangor.

Expectations are 5+ but I would be looking to buy in Kuala Lumpur. How far is it from KL and what is the downside of buying there instead of KL? I will be working in the downtown area and I have a child going to school, don't wants long travel distance from the residence for both of us.
