RM400m sales expected at luxury properties expo

Some RM400 million worth of luxury properties are expected to be sold by the end of the three-day Expo "Luxury Collection", which features high-end properties locally and abroad.

About US$2 billion (RM7.08 billion) worth of luxury properties, award-wining townships and developments are being showcased by top local and foreign developers at the expo. chairman Patrick Grove said two properties have already been sold by a local developer in the morning the expo started.

While Malaysia's property sector is not shielded from the global recession, he said, investors still see Malaysia as one of the cheapest in Asia to buy property.

"This is a testament of the strong Malaysian property market and is also indicative that luxury real estate everywhere is still, undoubtedly, a hot commodity," he said at the launch of the expo by Housing and Local Government Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

Also present was Group chief executive officer Ken Tsurumaru.

The luxury property exhibition, which ends tomorrow, is organised by, a subsidiary of the Group, which owns and operates property and real estate website and property magazine.

Grove said property prices in Malaysia's luxury segment have dropped between 10 per cent and 20 per cent since the start of the global economic crisis, while prices in the mass market have maintained or increased a little.

"But there are some indications since last month that prices are picking up.

"Traffic at our website shows that people are window-shopping but they have not made purchases yet," he said.

Last month, the company's website, Malaysia, registered the highest traffic of one million, up from 900 in May and 800 in April.

The average number of online visitors to its website last year was 750.

"This indicates that people's confidence is returning," he said.

This is the fifth year is organising the expo, which serves as an avenue for buyers and investors to expand their financial portfolio.

Grove said some 15,000 high net-worth individuals and institutional buyers from local and internati onal markets are expected to visit this year's expo, which showcases award-winning properties and luxury townships by Malaysia's top developers in high-growth areas such as Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya, Petaling Jaya, Penang and Johor.

Luxury properties from key cities around the world including London, Sydney, Melbourne, Gold Coast, Brisbane, Perth and Singapore are also available.

The event, which is participated by 80 local and international developers and investment organisations, also features property and investment seminars covering various topics.
