SHAH ALAM: Landed properties are popular among families looking for homes at the Star Property Fair 2014.
Operations manager Jagdeve Babu, 34, and his wife Dina Thomas, 32, are looking for such a place as “home sweet home” with their four-year-old boy and two girls aged two and one.
“We’re looking for landed property; a semi-d or a corner house. We want a nice home for our kids to play. We want pets to be able to roam around,” said Jagdeve.
He said that location was the most important factor in his search for a house.
“The StarProperty Fair allows us to see what’s in the market, see the different areas and opens up more options. Hopefully, this will lead to better decisions,” he said.
Sales executive Chua Chong Win and his girlfriend R&D executive Lim Phing May, both 29, are looking for a home to start a family in future.
“We are looking for landed property as it would be convenient and more comfortable,” said Chua.
Lim also said she wanted to get a pet dog, and that was another reason they were looking for landed property.
Mah Sing Group Bhd corporate communications general manager Lyanna Tew said the right product at locations where there was a supply shortage would still see strong demand from home buyers or genuine investors.
“We expect stronger buying momentum in the second half of the year with prospective buyers expected to buy ahead of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) implementation next year,” Tew said.
Tew said Mah Sing also offered value-added services with M Care, which provides a holistic after-sales services and M Club, a loyalty programme which offered privileges to buyers.
