ON the lookout for a home or investment opportunity? Do not miss the Fair 2019 that opens in Penang today.

The one-stop showcase at Sunway Carnival Mall in Seberang Jaya that runs until Sunday, comes at a great time.

With the government recently introducing the Home Ownership Campaign (HOC) and National Housing Policy 2.0, buyers will enjoy many incentives.

Under the HOC, which runs until June, residential units priced between RM300,000 and RM1mil are exempted from any stamp duties on the instruments of transfer and loan agreement.

Properties bought directly from developers at the fair would also be offered a minimum 10% discount along with other attractive incentives and freebies.

The HOC is aimed at helping individuals, especially those in the low-income (B40) and middle income (M40) brackets, to own a home.

And what better place to start the hunt than at the northern region’s premier property fair, which brings together numerous reputable real estate players.

The lineup includes Mah Sing Group, Ewein Zenith Sdn Bhd (City of Dreams), JKP Sdn Bhd, Tambun Indah Land Group, SV Group and Hunza Group.

Offerings range from the luxurious to affordable. There are landed and high-rise residences, stand-alone or within integrated townships, as well as retail and office spaces — mostly situated on Penang island and the mainland.
