OVER 1,000 properties are up for grabs at rock-bottom prices in various parts of Selangor, including the state capital Shah Alam and the prime property hot-spot Kota Damansara.
The Selangor State Development Corporation (PKNS) has announced that the Jualan Hartanah Mampu Milik PKNS 2008 (PKNS Affordable Properties Sale 2008) will take place from this Friday to May 18.
A total of 1,173 residential units, 53 bungalows, 25 shoplots and 206 industrial land lots are on offer at bargain prices.
On top of the discounted prices, buyers will also get incentives for each property bought.
A 10% discount will be given to buyers of factory buildings in Rawang and Air Manis, Sabak Bernam.
All other buyers will be given free air-conditioners, LCD television sets and electrical appliance vouchers, depending on the price of the properties.
According to PKNS deputy general manger (administration and development) Md Nasir Md Arshad, the sale is intended to give the public an opportunity to own their dream homes at an affordable price.
“PKNS properties are always priced at 7% to 10% less than other properties on the market,” Nasir said.
This time around, the sale will encompass properties in Shah Alam, Kota Damansara, Antara Gapi, Kota Puteri, Bernam Jaya, Bandar Baru Bangi, Kuala Selangor and Bandar Sultan Suleiman in Port Klang.
Almost all these projects have been completed.
“PKNS is also offering a payment facility where buyers only need to pay a RM500 down payment before commencing on a loan scheme being offered to qualified buyers,” Nasir said.
“The facility is a confidence boost for buyers of PKNS properties.
“The buyers can also pick strategic locations, including the upmarket hot spots like the new eight-storey apartment block in Section 10 at Kota Damansara, which is priced from RM180,000 onwards,” he said.
The new apartment block is equipped with a swimming pool, a badminton court and sports area.
It is strategically located in the vicinity of Petaling Jaya and is linked to highways, including the Damansara-Puchong Highway and MRR 2.
In Shah Alam, PKNS is offering 167 apartments at RM145,000 each in Section 24, a strategically located residential area with many nearby facilities like schools, clinics, 24-hour restaurants, car workshops and the Giant, Mydin and Ole Ole supermarkets.
“The lowest priced apartment is RM59,000 for the five-storey apartment in Bandar Sultan Suleiman,” Nasir said.
He said PKNS decided to hold another special sale this year as the response to the previous one was overwhelming with buyers snapping up all the properties because of the competitive prices, strategic locations and other attractive facilities.
“We have started using the tagline ‘Living with PKNS’ that is representative of the buyers’ confidence in our properties.
“It represents 150,000 PKNS property owners who have bought and continue to grow with our new properties,” Nasir said.
The properties sale will be held at the PKNS Complex in Shah Alam as well as at all PKNS sales gallery in the state.
