17 April, SEMENYIH — Houzkey, the first digitalized bank-initiated Rent-to-own scheme that allows homebuyers to own homes at a locked in purchase price with instant financing approval, was well-received at Setia EcoHill in an exclusive preview held recently by S P Setia. More than 200 homebuyers turned up to enquire and submit their applications within the two-hour slot for five projects offered under the scheme at Setia EcoHill and Setia EcoHill 2 namely the Grandlis, Floris, Gloris, Banyas and Clarus collection.
“We held the exclusive preview to introduce the Houzkey solution to prospective homebuyers as well as to officially launch the program here as we want to educate interested first-time purchasers, investors and home upgraders on the innovative Rent-to-own option that is now available to support their home purchase,” said Koh Sooi Meng, General Manager for Setia EcoHill.
“We anticipated the good response from the surrounding community as there were special incentives offered to those signing up including a low rental scheme for the first three-year tenure, 0% easy payment for three months rental deposit as well as one-year free clubhouse membership at the newly-opened Club 360˚ located within the Setia EcoHill township,” explained Koh further.
The iconic Club 360° building located on the highest point of Setia EcoHill houses the many facilities of the clubhouse including a gymnasium, multi-sports centre with an international futsal arena and four badminton courts which also doubles as a full-size basketball court plus an impressive full Olympic-length swimming facility flanked by wet and dry parks for children.
According to Koh, with the HouzKey scheme in Setia EcoHill, homebuyers can now embark on the Rent-to-own offer of rental from as low as RM 1,000 with the choice to migrate to a purchase loan after a renting tenure of 12 months. “The good response we are experiencing has brought us to the decision of extending this campaign for another month for interested customers to find out more about this alternative home ownership program,” he said.
Setia EcoHill offers an array of recreational facilities and modern conveniences including the lush EcoHill Park, Tenby International School and EcoHill Taipan commercial area, demonstrating S P Setia’s commitment towards building a self-sustainable township for the community of Semenyih.
“We are especially proud to have R.E.A.L. Kids kindergarten in Club 360˚ to provide the youngest members of our community with a rich educational experience. We are also excited about the growing list of tenants at EcoHill Taipan—99 Speed Mart, Mr. D.I.Y., Poliklinik Damai, Eco Smile Dental and the many eateries providing their valuable services to our community after the shops were handed over to their owners early this year” said Koh at the event.
More developments are on the way, chief among which is EcoHill Walk, the most anticipated integrated mixed development in the Kajang-Semenyih Corridor. The hub is expected to serve 600,000 people within 20 minutes’ drive upon completion in the year 2020. It will feature 80 blocks of lifestyle retail shops and office spaces interconnected with the neighbourhood mall via sheltered pedestrian walkways and lifts amid spectacular landscapes. The upcoming development will be supported by 2,000 parking bays for customers and business operators.
Currently also in development is Barras—the first Starter Homes Series in Setia EcoHill 2. The 20’x70’ units will be launched in mid-year with an indicative price of RM500,000. A total of 114 units are available for purchase with an attractive easy homeownership package. “Barras represents a great opportunity for young professionals and first-time home buyers to purchase their first landed property”, said Koh enthusiastically.
Barras is a freehold development located in the green township of Setia EcoHill 2 that is dedicated to preserving the natural undulating altitudes along the mountain slopes leading towards Bukit Tempurung, with more than 10,000 trees to be planted around the township. The double-storey homes come with either three or four bedrooms plus three bathrooms with a built up of 1,639 sq feet.
