The present study replicates the movement of the property cycle in Malaysia and predicts the timing of significant changes in property market dynamics. Combining property-related variables and macroeconomic series, the property cycle indicator (PCI) was established in the same manner as the [1]. The constructed PCI consistently exhibits predictive ability and leading attributes of the Malaysian property market across the period of 1991-2013. The average lead time of 3.7 months makes the PCI a forward-looking means of predicting the near-term prospects of the evolving property market. In essence, the empirical finding demonstrates that the indicator-based approach offers a promising early signaling mechanism for property market forecasting
