The HOC is organised by the Housing and Local Government Ministry (KPKT) in partnership with the Real Estate and Housing Developers’ Association Malaysia (Rehda). This is an initiative by the Ministry of Finance (MOF), as part of the government’s commitment under the National Housing Agenda to stimulate the market and increase home ownership among Malaysians.

“PR1MA is very pleased with the positive response received during the HOC 2019 Expo (in KLCC) that took off early this month. We hope we can continue to play a significant role to support the government’s initiative in addressing the needs of the rakyat in providing more quality and affordable homes for the middle-income group,” said PR1MA acting CEO Mohd Nazri Md Shariff.

“HOC 2019 Expo offers various types of affordable homes which are aimed at first-time home buyers and emerging young working professionals of different income levels who are looking to own a home in urban or suburban areas. 

“We strongly urge members of the public to visit the Expo in Seremban and Kuala Terengganu this weekend, as well as our sales gallery in Ara Damansara. This is indeed a great opportunity to take the first step towards owning your first property, and to learn more about the home buying process,” he added. 
“We would like to encourage more aspiring homeowners to take advantage of the great discounts and special packages offered during this six-month long campaign,” said Mohd Nazri. 

The public could go to PR1MA’s website for information and updates on the availability of the property they are vying for.
