BUY a house in China and get one free in Malaysia.
Developers are using this innovative marketing approach to boost property development in both countries, Nanyang Siang Pau reported.
However, buyers will have to purchase a RM10mil residence in China to get their free luxury home valued at RM500,000 in Malaysia, the paper said.
The local developers would maintain and rent out the property for the foreign owners and, at the same time, help them apply for the Malaysia My Second Home programme.
Many Chinese developers have purchased a large number of properties in Malaysia, which they give away as gifts to customers who buy houses worth between RM10mil and RM20mil.
> Youngsters who subscribed to a so-called charity drive on the Internet are showing off their new-earned wealth on Facebook, Sin Chew Daily reported.
“We have so much money we can’t finish it. Have you ever had more than RM10,000 in your branded bag to last through the New Year?” wrote one of them.
They also posted photos of their holidays overseas, branded items and cars on the social networking site.
The charity site is reportedly owned by two 27-year-old netizens, who hire over 200 “salesmen” – aged between 20 and 36 – to collect donations from the public for various causes.
One of them, who posted a “My first car” photo album, wrote to his friend: “Asked you to join you don’t want. I can’t finish spending my one month salary. Do you have a Gucci bag for New Year?”
Some of the so-called salesmen also revealed their salaries online. From May 1 to May 15, the top dealer’s total sales was RM10,650 and his salary was RM8,410.
