POTENTIAL buyers of quality homes are still looking for properties despite the higher interest rates of housing loans.
Mah Sing Group Bhd senior chief operating officer Seth Lim said the higher rates had affected the interest of property investors.
“However, those looking for quality homes are showing interest for products that meet their requirements.
“We are now offering easy ownership packages to reduce buyer’s initial capital outlay, so that they will have more cash in hand.
“For example, besides easy entry for our project, The Loft in Southbay City, the property comes with fully furnished package, so that buyers do not need to worry about coming up with additional cash for renovation,” he said at the StarProperty.my Fair 2018.
According to Lim, buyers are looking at properties priced around RM300,000 to RM500,000 on the island.
“In Seberang Prai, the price is around RM300,000,” he said.
The price offered by Mah Sing ranges between RM364,000 and RM4.5mil, covering the residential, commercial and industrial segments.
“The sales from Penang should contribute about 10% of our revenue this year,” Lim said.
SPNB Aspirasi Sdn Bhd sales executive Norliza Mansor said they received encouraging enquiries in the past two days.
“We received 50 registrations for our landed property projects on display. We expect a bigger crowd on the weekend.
“A lot of the interests are coming from Penang and Kuala Lumpur,” she said.
SPNB is showcasing the Metro Maya in Batu Gajah, Perak, Taman Permai Utama in Gurun, Kedah, Purnama Residensi in Terengganu, Taman Sutera Wangi in Melaka, Aspire Residence in Cyberjaya and Tanah Al-Hamra in Tanah Merah, Kelantan.
