From 19th to 21st May 2017, more than 800 visitors flocked to Johor Bahru City Square to check out the Home & Property Fair 2017, featuring a wide range of residential, commercial and industrial properties. The fair presented 25 exhibitors promoting an extensive range of middle to high-end residential and commercial properties, all under one roof.
Visitors to the fair were mainly interested in property development projects ranging from RM300,000 to RM500,000, and were there to research the market, check-out investment opportunities and purchase their first property.
Apart from properties, the event also showcased interactive activities such as free seminars, a video launch by Master Paw and a book launch by property stalwart Ishmael Ho. Visitors were also given the opportunity to engage in interesting activities namely, Spin the Wheel, lucky draws, children’s activities and colouring contests. Also on the list was a special contest for property purchasers. Winners walked away with attractive prizes that included home appliances.

“I was shopping at City Square and noticed this exhibition and so I decided to explore and do some homework on the property market. I am considering a landed weekend or retirement home.”

“I caught sight of the exhibition while shopping but I only visited the Sunway booth to enquire about Sunway Johor’s project updates. I have business interests in Johor Bahru and so this is a convenient location for me.”
