THE MyRumah prop­erty show­case is back for the sec­ond year run­ning, of­fer­ing the pub­lic a one-stop cen­tre for prop­erty con­sul­ta­tion.

Twelve lead­ing ex­hibitors, in­clud­ing seven prop­erty devel­op­ers, are tak­ing part in the three­day event.

At the launch, New Straits Times Press (NSTP) chair­man Tan Sri Is­mail Omar said the prop­erty show­case was an op­por­tu­nity for vis­i­tors to get first-hand in­for­ma­tion on the lo­cal prop­erty mar­ket.

“To­gether with our or­gan­is­ing part­ners An­daman Group and Le­pro Sys­tem Bhd, we gath­ered about 20 ex­perts from the in­dus­try to give talks on what the mar­ket is like now and for the fu­ture.

“It is a great op­por­tu­nity for Malaysians to be up­dated on the real es­tate mar­ket today, par­tic­u­larly dur­ing this chal­leng­ing time,” he said af­ter launch­ing the event in Balai Berita yes­ter­day.

Most of the projects show­cased are in the Klang Val­ley and priced around RM500,000.

NSTP chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Datuk Ab­dul Jalil Hamid said the 2017 show­case was a con­tin­u­a­tion of last year’s event.

“I hope this event will con­tinue to pro­vide vis­i­tors and po­ten­tial buy­ers the op­por­tu­nity to view and pos­si­bly sign up for prop­er­ties on sale here.

“We want to make this event a pre­ferred venue for prop­erty con­sul­ta­tion, where ex­ist­ing and po­ten­tial house buy­ers can come to get ex­pert advice from the speak­ers,” he said.

He added that the speak­ers would of­fer advice and tips on how to se­cure hous­ing loans and bet­ter loan re­pay­ment man­age­ment, as well as how to profit from prop­erty in­vest­ment.

NSTP will also or­gan­ise a prop­erty show­case in Kedah and Jo­hor and Jalil said there were plans to ex­pand the event to other states in the fu­ture.

Present were Berita Har­ian group edi­tor Datuk Mah­far Ali and Har­ian Metro group edi­tor Datuk Mustapa Omar.

An­daman Group man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Datuk Seri Dr Vin­cent Tiew said the event was unique as it fea­tured talks and fo­rums, be­sides the sales of prop­er­ties.

“Peo­ple may have the per­cep­tion that it is a dif­fi­cult time now to se­cure loans. That is why it is im­por­tant for them to take ad­van­tage of the event to learn more from the ex­perts.”
