PETALING JAYA: Malaysians should start thinking about home ownership before it becomes out of reach, said a property consultant.
Chur Associates founding managing director Chris Tan said property buyers were living in an era of the best home owner protection where incentives and attractive financing plans were provided to genuine home buyers.

Tan shared his insights on Malaysia’s agenda of “Housing the Nation” during the StarProperty.my’s Prime Investment Forum 2016 held on Sunday.
