iProperty.com’s Home & Property Investment Fair – Next Stop: KLCC!

iProperty KLCC show

Let’s face it – the go-go years of the bull run are no more. When times are good, any Ali, Muthu and Ah Chong can make money – since as the old cliche goes, a rising tide floats all boats. These days, if you want to make it in the property market then you’ve really got to bring your A-game.

The savviest investors know and appreciate the importance of keeping their ears to the ground. This is especially crucial now when there has been so many changes in the property market recently. The affordability problem is getting worse, developers are scaling back their new launches, loan rejection rate hitting its all-time high… keeping up with latest happenings can be a pain in the proverbial rump.

To gain yourself an edge in the property investment game, you can either diligently comb through the papers everyday to look out for property news (not that smart), or wait for your weekly issue of GoodPlace Digest to hit your email inbox every Wednesday morning (quite smart). Even better, I recommend that you spare an afternoon or two at the upcoming iProperty.com’s expo – there, you can get a braindump of everything important that you need to know about Malaysia property today, and like the best things in life, it’s free! Woohoo!

The iProperty.com Home and Property Investment Fair will be held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre on April 22nd till 24th, from 11am to 8pm daily. My favourite part of these iProperty.com expos has always been the seminars (where do you think I get the content for my blog to plagiarize from? *cough*), and the speaker lineup is not too shabby –

So you’ve attended the seminars, and your brain is brimming with knowledge and property investment ideas. Is it then time to go home? Well, not quite. There’s enough activities elsewhere in the expo to keep you entertained for at least a couple of hours before your ADHD kicks in –

  • Snap, Tag & Win: locate the photo booth, snap a selfie of George the Monkey, post on Facebook or Instagram, tag iPropertyMY with hashtag #georgethemonkey and get a prize
  • Monkey & Ladder: a ridiculously engaging game with lots of prizes to be won
  • Daily lucky draws: go to Hall 1 (3.30pm & 7.15pm)
  • An exclusive lucky draw only for buyers
  • Sand art for the kids (free!)
  • Preview of the Towers at Elizabeth Quay (Perth). More details can be found at the iProperty international booth inside the event hall, or alternatively, go here.

And most importantly, go check out the developer booths, marvel at their cutesy miniature model houses, befriend their impossibly affable sales personnel and collect their fabulously glitzy brochures for your bedtime reading. Don’t forget to bring along your cheque book, too – to paraphrase U2, this time you may well find that one elusive property that you have been looking for all your life. Serendipity, baby.

See you there!
