IF you haven’t bought your first property and are looking at getting one soon, then the best place to get a headstart is at Malaysia Property Expo (Mapex) — the country’s largest property exposition.
Mapex, which is organised by the Real Estate and Housing Developers’ Association Malaysia, will start this year at the Mid Valley Exhibition Centre, Kuala Lumpur, starting from tomorrow to Sunday.
More than 50 developers will be showcasing a range of properties, from affordable and landed to exclusive and luxury units.
Among the exhibitors are Eco World Development Group Bhd, Mah Sing Group Bhd, Matrix Concepts Holdings Bhd, SP Setia Bhd, Malaysian Resources Corp Bhd (MRCB), MKH Bhd, IJM Land Bhd and Putra Nilai Development Sdn Bhd.
State agencies such as Rumah Mampu Milik Wilayah Persekutuan (RUMAWIP) under the Federal Territories Ministry would also be participating.
End-financiers include Hong Leong Bank and Maybank Bhd.
Mapex chairman Datuk Ng Seing Liong said despite a slightly sluggish market, there was still demand for properties, although end-financing issues and loan rejection had made buyers put their investment on hold.
“Regretfully, end-financing issues faced by interested house buyers have dampened the actual sale. Financing is most essential in house purchase.
“We encourage the public to visit this weekend’s Mapex and attend the forum as you will surely gain useful information. You will also be able to learn the tips and tricks on house purchase and find out where and when to buy as well as know your rights as a purchaser,” he said.
