For homebuyers: choose real estate developers carefully

Real estate developers play a pivotal role in real estate projects. The wrong choice of irresponsible developers will not only lead to the wasting of the home buyers' funds, but also seriously affect their life planning. So how should buyers choose real estate developers?

  1. Understand the background of real estate developers and past development projects
    Ask the developer or search the developer’s history and records on the Internet, including the background of directors and shareholders, past development experience, sales reputation, project quality, award records, project advertising permits and development licenses (APDL) , etc. A serious developer must be able to provide home buyers with these specific information.
  2. Check whether the real estate developer has ever been blacklisted
    Before buying a house, browse the website ( established by the Ministry of Housing and Local Government of Malaysia to ensure that the developer has a good record.
  3. Personally visit the project site to survey the environment
    If the situation permits, the buyer may wish to personally go to the construction site to observe the on-site situation. Assuming that the site has not kept up with the development schedule set, but the developer cannot provide a satisfactory explanation, then it may be better to consider more before making a decision.
  4. Beware of discount traps
    Excessive discounts are enough to blind your eyes. If the offer of this project is too good to be true, please take more time to verify it. Remember, real estate development is a commercial activity, and developers still need to take care of the company's profits and losses.
