RM50 Million Worth of Properties Sold at the 2013 PH Expo Miri
RM50 million worth of properties were sold at the 2013 Property Hunter Expo (PH Expo) held last weekend at the Miri Indoor Stadium.
The Expo which took place in Miri for the first time showcased vibrant property developments in Malaysia, Singapore and Australia attracted over 1,000 visitors. It featured various property projects including high end residential condominiums, semi-detached houses, commercial shop lots and commercial retail outlets.
According to Ali Daud Senior Operation Executive of The Wharf, "We are very pleased with the response of the expo. Unfortunately the only thing that is holding customers back is the strict loan policy imposed by the bank. Despite this, it is clear that people from Miri are keen to invest, and we have received numerous bookings."
Jenny Neoh Managing Director of Australia Property and Development also said, "We are glad to have brought in quality Australian projects to showcase to the local people of Miri. We are pleasantly surprised by the openness of the locals towards Australian properties."
"The response in Miri has been very encouraging. Although we were expecting a higher turn up of visitors, we are happy that the overall sales figure has achieved our target!" said Michael Hiew, organizer who adds that people in Miri are certainly ready and keen to invest in properties, even those outside of Miri.
Besides getting the opportunity to view various projects, every visitor that registered at the PH Expo received a free copy of the latest issue of the Property Hunter Magazine. All property buyers were entitled to enter the Buy & Win Lucky Draw for the opportunity to take home an Acer P3 Ultrabook and Wong Deck Yuck went home with the prize.
