350 bookings received for Karisma apartments

Eco World Development Group Bhd (EcoWorld) has received 350 bookings for its Karisma apartments at its Eco Majestic township in Semenyih as at 4pm Saturday.

Buyers – some of them having queued up from 2am at the sales gallery’s guard house – gave the developer cheques worth RM5,000 to secure the opportunity to select their apartments at a later date, which falls either at the end of February or in early March.

This is not a final count as the developer will continue to receive cheques from interested buyers after today, Eco Majestic general manager Evon Yap Yoke Ching told TheEdgeProperty.com.

On the good response, she said: “We remain very positive about the market sentiment and believe there are still opportunities for our sincere buyers and investors.”

The freehold Karisma project comprises 750 units of 3-bedroom and 2-bathroom apartments with a built-up size of 800 sq ft. The apartments are priced at about RM260,000 each come with two parking bays each.

“With the price of RM260,000, we foresee many young working professionals and couples taking up the units for their own stay,” said Yap.

“Also, there are many parents aiding their children with the down payment to secure a home for their future generation,” she added.

She said some of the concerns buyers had were about Karisma’s completion date, the facilities at Eco Majestic and whether they could still obtain 90% financing for the project.

About 10,000 people thronged the sales gallery, which opened from 10am to 8pm, according to Eco World’s estimates. - The Edge Property
