Affordable houses a dream come true for people
THERE was a massive turnout at the launch of the affordable housing scheme by Sultan of Johor Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar at the Galleria Kotaraya complex in Johor.
More than 10,000 had gathered from as early as 4am to get registration forms for dream homes.
The overwhelming response is testimony to how much affordable houses mean to the people.
Looking at the houses and properties these days would give people in their 60s and 70s a heart attack.
Houses in cities and towns are being sold between RM850,000 and RM1.5 million, while houses in the suburban areas are going for RM400,000 to RM800,000.
How can young graduates and couples afford to buy homes at these prices?
Even taking joint bank loans and government loans will make young couples debtors for life.
Johoreans can look forward to
