With up to 57% of Malaysians keen on purchasing a property in the next six months, PropertyGuru created the â€œMy Dream Home Campaignâ€ contest with a cash prize of RM50,000 to assist Malaysians in their first hurdle, the down payment for their dream home.
â€œWhether it is for first time home buyers or upgraders, the â€œMy Dream Homeâ€ Contest is aimed at helping Malaysians to afford a home,â€ said Sheldon Fernandez, Country Manager, PropertyGuru Malaysia.
The journey was an education to users on how to make an informed decision when purchasing a property, via learning through PropertyGuruâ€™s Guides, Project Reviews, New Home Listings and New Launches.
31-year old family man, Muhammad Nor Hafidzi Mahat captured the imagination of the judges with his winning entry, to win RM50,000 cash for the property of his choice, Era@Duta North.
In his speech on how PropertyGuru played a hand in his property buying journey, Nor Hafidzi Mahat shared â€œWith meticulous research through the PropertyGuru portal albeit with a limited budget, we shortlisted a few property picks based on location, price analysis, floor plans, facilities and developersâ€™ background.â€
â€œWhat drew us to Era@Duta North was the forest village lifestyle concept which includes a wetland sanctuary, tree house, several gardens, walking trails, and over 100 nature facilities.â€
Also present was Executive Director, JKG Land, Mr Foh Meng Hua who proceeded to handover the RM50,000 cheque alongside Ryan Thoo, Head of Consumer Marketing, PropertyGuru Malaysia.
â€œItâ€™s an honour for Era@Duta North to be spoken of so highly and is the property of choice.
â€œMerging both nature and urban concept was no easy feat, but we are confident of delivering a new concept in the way people live, work and play,â€ said Mr Foh Meng Hua, Executive Director of JKG Land at the prize giving ceremony.
