Promoting Bumiputera Homeownership Via Smart Financing


REHDA’s inaugural Bumi MAPEX to revitalize homeownership market



The Real Estate and Housing Developers’ Association (REHDA) is proud to present its flagship and signature property exposition, MAPEX yet again this October. For the first in REHDA’s history, it is promoting two MAPEX expos end-to-end. But this time around its new MAPEX is aptly known as Bumiputera Property Exposition or Bumi MAPEX, an exposition that specially caters for the Bumiputera community. The inaugural Bumi MAPEX is currently held at Shah Alam Convention Centre (SACC), Selangor from 7-9 October 2016, and the following two weeks thereafter, the national MAPEX will be making its second debut this year from 21-23 October 2016 at Mid Valley Exhibition Centre (MVeC), Kuala Lumpur. Thousands of visitors are anticipated to throng both expos with hundreds of participating developers exhibiting their latest development projects alongside niche residential properties.DSC09693_50


The current property market slowdown and stagnation has invariably caused potential home-owners and prospective house buyers to postpone their plans for purchasing their first home, let alone their dream home. In the present economic climate, most Malaysians would adopt a ‘wait-and-see’ attitude or approach towards future property purchases and transactions. REHDA believes in taking the proactive stand or measure in assisting buyers in obtaining the best home financing scheme via collaborations and smart partnerships with real estate developers. Developers would duly provide the relevant financial assistance to house buyers in securing much needed housing loans for home buyers. Some developers have gone a step further by dishing out home loans to purchasers upon successful applications. A plethora of options and choices are available all under one roof at MAPEX. Developers have an excellent platform to market their products, whilst buyers may look forward to reputable developers offering quality and premium houses with all the necessary criteria to meet their needs and requirements. It is by far the longest running and biggest property expo to date!



In retrospect, developers should take advantage of this property exhibition, and grab this golden opportunity to be a part of MAPEX. The Bumi MAPEX which is taking place now is part of REHDA’s noble and concerted efforts to gather all available Bumiputera residential units offering attractive discounts in a single exposition. The bottom-line or the ultimate goal of Bumi MAPEX is to help Bumiputeras secure their dream homes. Malaysians are obviously spoilt for choice when it comes to real estate, in particular residential properties. Among the exhibitors featured during the entire two-day event at Shah Alam Convention Centre (SACC) include the likes of I&P Group, Mah Sing Group, MK Land, IJM Land, Sunsuria, UEM Sunrise, Natural Domain, Matrix Concepts, Glomac Corporation, Thriven Property, Andaman Property Management, Kota Kelang Development, Lembaga Perumahan dan Hartanah Selangor (LPHS), Perbadanan Kemajuan Negeri Selangor (PKNS), Permodalan Nasional Berhad Development (PNBD), Johawaki Development, Sin Hee Yang Property Management, among others.DSC09689_50
