    Brand new affordable housing project by Johor Sultan!

    Wednesday, 22 March 2017

    JOHOR BARU: News of “the wonder project” in Johor, with bungalows and semi-detached houses to be priced below RM100,000, is causing ripples here.

    After the jaw-dropping gift announcement by Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar (pic) on Monday, many took leave to attend the soft launch of Phase One at the [email protected] Mall today.

    Johoreans working in other states also headed back, determined to make it for the event.

    The project has been a major talking point on social media, with many people getting impatient for details on the project, which was being kept under wraps till the launch.

    Sales support officer S. Veronica, 33, said she desperately wanted to be one of the first to sign up.

    “This is a really fantastic opportunity,” she said.

    Johorean Raja Mohd Faliq Raja Adam, 33, who works as an assistant manager in Selangor, was also throwing his hat in.

    “I have been scouting around for a house for years but have not been successful, what with the skyrocketing prices of property in Johor.

    “I hope to return and settle down here but with two children and one more on the way, I need to have a roof over our heads first,” he said.

    Cashier Melissa Chin, 26, thanked Sultan Ibrahim for stepping in to help Johoreans get affordable housing.

    “The price offered for the homes is really amazing,” she added.

    Sultan Ibrahim had said that a total of 1,840 homes would be built over several phases at Bandar Dato Onn, Bandar Baru Majidee and Jalan Yahya Awal, all within 20 minutes drive of the city centre.

    The first phase in Bandar Dato Onn would comprise 600 bungalows and semi-detached units with a built up area of 1,100sq ft each.

    The Ruler had said that the freehold projects would be built under the Sultan Ibrahim Foundation.

    Bank loans with flexible repayment schemes are being worked out. To be fair to all, the selection process for the houses would be stringent, with priority given to truly deserving buyers.

    Overwhelming response for Bangsa Johor dream house
    Bernama
    ShareTweetPinMail
    rumah-johor

    JOHOR BAHRU: Thousands of Johoreans gathered at Galleria Kota Raya here, as early as 4am, hoping to own a Bangsa Johor Dream House launched by the Sultan Ibrahim Foundation yesterday.

    There was confusion about the collection of forms to register for the housing project about half an hour after the pre-launch event yesterday evening.

    It was learnt many visitors went to the venue early so as to not miss out on an opportunity to apply for the housing project.

    However, they were dismayed when told registration can only be done via the foundation’s website www.yayasansultanibrahim.org.my.

    Meanwhile, it was reported yesterday that more than 200,000 applications were received via the website within two hours of the launch.


    The Sultan of Johor, Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar, and his consort Permaisuri Raja Zarith Sofiah Almarhum Sultan Idris Shah launched the event.

    Alfred Tan Wei Ann, 25, described the housing project as an excellent initiative for the people of the state.

    “The project is very timely as houses are very expensive, especially in Johor, and many cannot afford to buy houses. So the project is good for residents in the state.

    “I hope to own a house through this project,” said the sales representative from Johor Bahru.

    Another early bird, Mohd Faizal Mohd Omar, 39, was very excited about the project as it could really assist the people to own houses.

    “As a Johorean, I am proud to have the opportunity to own a house priced RM100,000 and below. I have been waiting since morning for the opening ceremony by the Sultan.

    “For me, the project will assist Johoreans regardless of whether they are Malay, Chinese or Indian,” said the civil servant.

    A Felda retiree, K Subramaniam, also did not want to be left behind during the launch and to obtain information about the houses offered.

    “This is good news for Johoreans as many could not afford to buy houses and this is an opportunity for them to buy houses especially at such affordable prices.

    “Today, I came to find out more information on the eligibility to apply for the house and I also called my children to apply,” he said.

    The Bangsa Johor Dream House by the Sultan Ibrahim Foundation will see two housing projects which will be implemented in Bandar Dato’ Onn and Bandar Baru Majidee with various types of houses priced from RM80,000 to RM150,000 a unit.

    The sultan is merely copying HDB's strategy of offering sinkies cheap housing which will appreciate after 5 years MOP. No big deal.

    Thank you Ah Gong for offering all sinkies cheap affordable housing that made so many sinkies into millionaires. Ah John miss you and Ah Ma very much.

    Johor Sultan to Launch Affordable Homes on 59th Bday

    Johor Sultan to Launch Affordable Homes on 59th Bday


    Johor is among the fastest booming states in Malaysia. Developments like Elita , The Senai Garden and Ramada are among affordable to medium ranged properties that are financial friendly to home buyers.

    Hence, to commemorate the 59th birthday of Johor’s Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar on Thursday (23 March), his excellency will launch a mixed-use project in Johor Bahru with low-cost homes.

    Located in Bandar Dato Onn, the freehold development will come with various types of residential and commercial units. It will be undertaken by the Sultan Ibrahim Foundation, with the help of Bank Rakyat.

    “I want this to be a first-of-its-kind housing scheme that is truly affordable, offering the cheapest and best quality houses to the people,” he told The Star.

    For instance, semi-detached houses and the three-bedroom bungalows there are expected to be priced under RM100,000 per unit. Moreover, successful applicants will only need to fork out a deposit of RM1 to get a full housing loan with easy repayment terms

    The low-cost homes are open to all qualified citizens of Johor, but the process to screen out the potential buyers would be rigorous.

    “I do not want to reveal too much now but the people are welcome to [email protected] on Wednesday for the soft launch of this exciting project,” he noted.

    Sultan Ibrahim revealed that aside from providing affordable homes, another objective of this development is to shake up Johor’s housing industry here and encourage private developers to slash the prices of their units.

    “We must make housing more affordable. The price now is way beyond the reach of the average wage earner,” he added.

    Among new developments in Johor to look out for are:

    1. Nusa Sentral Spring Meadow

    2. Clarinet, Taman Desa Tebrau

    3.The Caspian

    No difference other than the shitty neighbours like those I get who let their dogs bark non-stop and shit everywhere. But these bastards will not dare to behave like that next to Malay, only dare to bully Chinese and especially Sporean Chinese.

    Hahahaha very possible consider the kinds of shameless lies and dirty tricks that I have been subjected to by them. But I don't think they will complain Sultan, they seem to revere him alot for some reasons. Not sure why.
