KUALA LUMPUR: Property developers at the recent Mapex Penang 2012 property exposition clinched a record RM90 million in sales.
Themed "The Most Lau Juak Property Show", the property expo showcased the newest property developments in the market across Malaysia.
"The record expo sales figures are testimony that the appetite for properties remained strong and even far exceed expectations in some cases," Real Estate And Housing Developers' Association (Rehda)-Penang Branch said in a statement.
Mapex Penang was organised by iProperty.com Malaysia on behalf of Rehda Penang.
According to the association, IJM's collection of 'The Light' properties were popular among visitors over the three-day expo, with 12 units sold for over RM15 million.
"Magna Putih's Mansion One development was snapped up totaling over RM11 million, with 19 units sold. Land & General also enjoyed brisk sales with 19 units worth over RM11 million sold," it said.
Visitors to Mapex Penang also had a chance to listen to leading property experts talking about sound property investment decisions during the seminar sessions.
Popular among visitors was a presentation by Richard Oon from ConsulNet Tax Services, on tax implications of property transactions. Another crowd pleasure was a session on benefits of buying property from developers by property investment guru, Milan Doshi.
Those interested in foreign investment were given tips and tricks on property investment in Australia by Ameer Abas from OZ Property Group.
Attractive prizes worth over RM70,000 from Deep Living, Signature Kitchen, KaraBest and Korea Wallpaper were awaiting visitors at the exhibition.
Rehda Penang chairman Datuk Jerry Chan Fook Sing said the association has achieved its aim in helping home buyers find their dream homes during the expo.
