THE Star Property Fair 2010 in Penang got off to a rousing start with at least RM13mil in sales recorded within hours of its opening.
Many visitors took the plunge to buy their dream homes when the three-day fair at G Hotel and Gurney Plaza opened at 10am yesterday. Exhibitors were pleased with the overwhelming response from the visitors.
Among those reporting brisk sales were major developers Ivory Properties Group, Belleview Group, IJM Land Berhad and SP Setia Bhd Group.
Belleview’s managing director Datuk Sonny Ho, whose projects included the All Seasons Park, Bukit Dumbar Residences, Palmyra Residences and Melody Homes, attributed the fair’s location at a high-traffic urban shopping mall as a big factor in drawing in the crowds.
“Last year, we had nearly RM60mil worth of sales over the three days. We’re optimistic in surpassing that figure this time.
“Penang is a very livable city, with a balanced lifestyle and good employment options. With the economy in a recovering state, buying interest has been very strong,” Ho said.
SP Setia’s innovative booth design proved effective. The group recorded a whopping RM5mil in sales within the first two hours for its projects – Reflections and Setia Pearl Island.
