RM11mil in sales at property fair

The recently concluded state-level Malaysia Property Expo (MAPEX) organised by the Seremban chapter of the Real Estate and Housing Developers’ Association (Rehda) netted RM11mil in sales over the three-day fair.

Some 20 developers showcased 1,432 properties including single and double-storey terraces, semi-Ds, shop-offices and bungalow lots during the expo held at the Seremban Parade Shopping Centre.

The annual property expo is a one-stop centre aimed at providing house-buyers the convenience of selecting their properties of choice under one roof.

Rehda Negri Sembilan chairman Datuk Soam Heng Choon said the expo provided a platform for investors to grab choice properties in good locations at unbeatable deals.

“With the improving economic situation, now is indeed a good time for purchasing your ideal home or office before prices start going up.

“We are also mindful in ensuring our developments are environmentally sustainable and will be encouraging our members to construct more energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly homes,” he said adding that this year’s Mapex theme — Go Green — reflected the association’s commitment to promoting green living.

Soam said developers were already planning sustainable development projects with the use of green building materials and through incorporating green features such as water conservation systems (rain water harvesting).

“Homes today incorporate a green living concept with beautifully landscaped parks, with the use of reusable, recyclable or biodegradeable building materials to reduce waste and pollution and energy-efficient lighting systems to reduce long term utility costs,” he said.

State housing, local government, new villages and public transportation committee chairman Datuk Siow Chen Pin commended the association for successfully organising the biennial expo.

He also emphasised the building of quality homes and encouraged developers to incorporate green features in their projects.

“With spacious homes, good amenities and public facilities, I think Seremban is also an ideal place for people working in the Klang Valley to settle down,” he said.

The participating developers offered various incentives including cash rebates and visitors who bought properties at the fair also had the opportunity to participate in a lucky draw.

The expo also had the support of co-sponsors Nippon Paint and Monier.
