八打灵再也（11月15日讯）：EdgeProp私人有限公司主席拿督Tong Kooi Ong说，FundMyHome并不是设计出来解决所有问题的方案。 他在11月15日举办的FundMyHome媒体问答环节上指出，FundMyHome能够为买家带来的好处，就是在5年期间只需支付房价的20%，也不必申请房贷和支付分期付款，而且还可以立即入住。 但买家必须付出的，就是要承担房价在五年后下跌的风险。不过，他们的亏损最高也只是房价的20%，也就是当初他们支付的那20%款项。 他续称，因此FundMyHome是一个提供给那些愿意与别人分享未来资本增值，从而换取马上拥有和入住房子的房屋买家的平台。 虽然有些人认为，如果一个人无力买房，就应该选择租房，但Tong认为：“无可否认的，租房是一个可行的选择。但跟买家说‘买不起就不要买’这种言论，对那些想要拥有房子的年轻人来说是很看不起人的。” “我们现在是为他们提供另一种可能，FundMyHome并不是设计出来解决所有房屋买家问题的方案，但我们有信心，这将成为一部分人的解决方案。” 由EdgeProp私人有限公司开创的FundMyHome.
