PRIME properties with enticing price tags in mainland Penang and Kedah are taking centre stage at Star Property Fair 2016 in Sunway Carnival Mall in Seberang Jaya, Penang, today.
Home hunters and investors can check them out and enjoy attractive deals at the event which runs until Sunday.
With 13 exhibitors under one roof, it is a great opportunity to run the rule over the plethora of luxurious landed homes, high-rise residences, integrated developments, as well as retail and office spaces.
Many of the offerings are located in Seberang Prai and Kedah – two thriving areas that have attracted a lot of property interest on account of prices that are comparatively lower and more accessible to first-time buyers.
Locations like Seberang Prai, Simpang Ampat, Kepala Batas, Jawi and Sungai Petani are rapidly developing with modern amenities and offering people a comfortable living environment.
The fair also features projects in the central region of Malaysia and the United Kingdom, as well as an oil palm plantation investment scheme in Sabah.
For buyers looking for the best, check out the largest exhibitor at the fair, Ewein Zenith Sdn Bhd. Taking up a capacious 36m by 20m, this booth showcases City of Dreams, a twin-tower condominium of unbridled luxury overlooking the crescent-shaped coastline of Gurney Drive.
Other renowned developers present are IJM Land Bhd, BDB Land Sdn Bhd, Bandar Kepala Batas Sdn Bhd (a subsidiary of Hunza Properties Berhad), UDA Land (North) Sdn Bhd and MBI Desa Ku Sdn Bhd.
Also on board are East West One Horizon Plantation Bhd, Reka Indah Development (Penang) Sdn Bhd, Bertam Properties Sdn Bhd, Tropicana Ivory Sdn Bhd, Tambun Indah Land Berhad, Aroma Development Sdn Bhd and Golden Sands Developments, UK.
With ongoing infrastructure projects set to contribute to a better quality of life in Penang, now is a good time to consider getting your dream home here.
Penang recently edged ahead of Klang Valley as the most attractive place for property investments according to the Malaysia Commercial Real Estate Investment Sentiment Survey, garnering 67% of responses.
George Town was picked as the sixth ‘Best Place to Retire Abroad in 2016’ by CNN Money, and as the second ‘Best Place in the World to Retire’ by Conde Nast Traveller magazine.
