THE StarProperty.my Fair 2018 opens at Gurney Plaza and Gurney Paragon Mall in Penang today, offering vast choices to home hunters and investors alike.
On until Sunday, it is the northern region’s most anticipated property expo, bringing together 17 leading developers and investment scheme operators.
There are choice residential properties — landed or high-rise, completed or coming up — in prime areas like Penang and the Klang Valley.
For many today, choosing home is more than just about the square footage. Lifestyle concept, location and pricing have become key considerations.
Be it a classy residence by the hills, a trendy loft in the city or a scenic waterfront pad, there are numerous options catering to different needs.
There are also integrated developments with commercial components for those who prefer to have convenience at their doorstep, as well as affordable housing for those on tighter budgets.
Whether one is looking for that first dream home, upgrading to something better or buying for investment, the attractive packages offered by developers make the fair a great time to take the plunge.
The fair is not all about homes, as visitors will also find a good array of retail, office and industrial lots, as well as real estate-related investment schemes, on offer.
Exhibitors this time include Ivory Properties Group Bhd, Hunza Properties Bhd, Ideal Property Group, Ewein Zenith Sdn Bhd, Bandar Utama Development Sdn Bhd, Kerjaya Prospek Property Sdn Bhd and Mah Sing Group.
Completing the list are BTK Land Sdn Bhd, Sepakat Mewah Sdn Bhd, Hatten Group Sdn Bhd, Bionic Land, East West One Group, GIC Group, Penang Development Corporation, Devoteshens Sdn Bhd, Aroma Development Sdn Bhd, and Cosmopolitan Homes.
Besides the property offerings, fair visitors can also attend the line-up of informative and insightful talks by industry experts.
Topics cover everything from Feng Shui to home buying considerations, current and future property trends, wealth creation, taxation and even interior design.
The highlight is a session on ‘The Future of Penang after GE14’ at 5pm on Sunday, to be moderated by Henry Butcher Malaysia (Penang) Asset Valuation executive vice-president Shawn Ong Kah Boo.
Panelists are Penang Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow, Rehda Penang chairman Datuk Toh Chin Leong, State Local Government, Housing, Town and Country Planning Committee chairman Jagdeep Singh Deo and USM professor Dr Nor’aini Yusof.
The Spin & Win Contest also returns, offering fabulous prizes worth around RM50,000 — including grand prizes of Samsung Galaxy A7 (four units), Samsung Galaxy Tab A 7.0 (four units), perfumes, L’occitane products, branded pens and shopping vouchers.
