Henry Butcher ties-up with Aussie builder

PETALING JAYA: Henry Butcher Malaysia, an international real estate consultancy firm has tied up with the Metricon Group, one of Australia’s leading home builders and land developers to offer Malaysian investors, customised investment home packages in Melbourne, Australia.

Henry Butcher Marketing Sdn Bhd COO Tang Chee Meng (pix) said in a statement that the tie-up is the beginning of the group’s plans to increase its international property marketing portfolio. He added that the group plans to introduce properties from the UK, Singapore, Dubai, India, Vietnam and other fast-growing markets to the increasingly sophisticated Malaysian investors.

The collaboration with Metricon aims to tap into Melbourne’s property market which has performed strongly over the last year, supported by a solid economy and an increasing number of international immigrants.

The Metricon group which has over 30 years of experience in home building and is Victoria state’s largest home builder, has moved aggressively into the development of residential communities and integrated housing projects, after having established its core business as a boutique contract homes builder since 1976.

Also in 2006, Metricon was named Victoria’s leading builder by the Housing Industry Association for its awardwinning range of homes in Victoria and Queensland.

Metricon homes are covered by a 25-year structural guarantee. According to Tang, the collaboration with Metricon will help launch Metricon Homes’ entry into Malaysia, making available to Malaysian investors, quality and affordable homes from less than A$300,000 (about RM900,000) strategically located less than 25 km from Melbourne’s Central Business District.

Three projects by Metricon located in Tarneit, Point Cook and Sanctuary Lakes, Melbourne will be showcased at a Henry Butcher–Metricon special preview for Malaysian investors at the Crown Plaza Mutiara Hotel, Kuala Lumpur from March 21 to 23.

"These projects have not yet been released in Australia, so Malaysians will have the first pick of the units in these projects. Investors who are looking into diversifying their investment portfolio in Australia will be attracted by the home and land packages that come with attractive financial packages and free consultation regarding legal implications, migration and multi-currency packages," said Tang, adding that talks in investment and migration in Australia will also be held on the days of the preview.

In the near future, Henry Butcher also plans to promote projects located in the Gold Coast, Queensland, another property investment hotspot in Australia.
