GEORGE TOWN: Three developers have sold properties worth more than RM30mil over the past two days at the four-day StarProperty.my Fair 2019, which ends today.

Zeon Properties and Property Talk are the marketing agents respectively for COD and Celesta Residency, and Emerald Residence.
Property Talk principal Steven Cheah said the key attraction of this project is its build-then-sell concept, whereby buyers need only pay 10% of the purchase price with the balance 90% payable upon completion of the development.
“Only reputable and financially strong developers are able to undertake this concept, which accords buyers substantial savings on instalment interests since they are only billed upon completion, ” he said.
The Emerald Residence condominium is priced between RM478,000 and RM500,000.
“Because of the excess supply, we can expect Penang property prices to remain stable in the years to come, ” Cheah added.
