Well..Ipoh houses are still expensive comparing with KL houses.

Moreover the cost of funding is quite cheap now..But I am still thinking to put my money in Kampar...cheers
If you want, I'd agree on the houses nearest to UTAR. Currently, the 3 rooms S/S storey ones opposite KTAR/UTAR in Setapak goes for not less than RM600 per month and it's very shabby. Some are even packed like sardines and there are also make shift rooms from the hallway. The rates are usually per student basis and it starts from RM150 per pax.
Anyway, I don't see very good ROI in Ipoh or in Kampar. If it's a long term investment, it'll be cheaper than in the Klang Valley.
Bottomline - it's LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION.
