Making Bumiputra properties accessible & affordable to Malaysians
The Real Estate and Housing Developers Association Malaysia (REHDA) together with the Ministry of Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government (KPKT) are for the first time collaborating to organize the Affordable Housing Carnival (KPMM) – Malaysia Property Expo (MAPEX) which will be held from 11 to 13 August at the Shah Alam Convention Center (SACC), Selangor. The carnival, which focuses mainly on affordable housing priced below RM500,000 is an initiative by the Government and REHDA in the pursuit of realizing Government’s objective in promoting home ownership among the Rakyat besides facilitating the public with opportunities to have easy access to available affordable houses in the market.
Aside from offering affordable houses in Klang Valley, KPMM-MAPEX 2017 would also promote similar units located in other states such as Melaka, Kedah, Perak, Pahang, Penang and Kelantan. A wide variety of property options from the open market with attractive promotions such as Bumiputera discounts, purchase rebates by participating developers and so on also await visitors at KPMM-MAPEX. Among the 40 developers and government agencies that will be participating at KPMM-MAPEX are Glomac Berhad, IJM Land Berhad, Perbadanan Kemajuan Negeri Selangor (PKNS), Kota Kelang Development Sdn Bhd, Setia Ecohill Sdn Hill, UEM Sunrise Berhad, Mitraland Group, Matrix Concepts Holdings Berhad and various government agencies under the National Housing Department such as the Lembaga Perumahan dan Hartanah Selangor (LPHS) offering Rumah Selangorku, as well as the Federal Territories Ministry (KWP) promoting RUMAWIP (i.e. Rumah Malaysia Wilayah Persekutuan).
“REHDA is pleased to be working with the Ministry in organizing the KPMM-MAPEX as part of our efforts to encourage home ownership. The previous MAPEXes organized by REHDA were mostly showcasing houses by private developers only, but through this strategic partnership, there are more state governments taking part to offer more affordable homes, especially those under government’s control. REHDA is confident that with strong support from the Government and its agencies, private developers as well as the public, KPMM-MAPEX will be able to achieve its objective in providing the right platform for buyers searching for their dream homes. Over 5,000 properties of various types with a total value of RM5 billion will be offered at KPMM-MAPEX. To facilitate buyers with housing loan information’s, the carnival will also be participated by financial institutions namely Maybank Berhad and Bank Simpanan Nasional. I hope more financial institutions will be participating in expos like this to enable buyers make comparison on housing loan products that best suit their financing capability.” – Datuk Ng Seing Liong, MAPEX 2017 Organizing Committee Chairman
