KUALA LUMPUR: Mah Sing Group Bhd is targeting to launch RM2bil properties this year with 50% priced below RM500,000.

"In the next two years we are focusing On the affordable house segment to capture the current market demand,"  executive director Datuk Steven Ng told reporters at Invest Malaysia 2016.

He said the consumer sentiment might have reached the bottom, hence there was no need for more cooling measures for the property market. 

The house price index had dropped to 5.8% in 2015 from 11.8% in 2012.

Ng said Mah Sing has unbilled sales of RM4.75bil which could last the company for the next two to three years.
