The desire for a dream place to call home has never waned in the hearts of most Malaysians. However, challenging economic situations and financial obligations have resulted in most people postponing this goal. 

It is not easy to own a home, even with various incentives from the home ownership campaign and package deals thrown in by developers. Building your dream home requires great commitment, from finding the right location to deciding your budget and searching for home inspiration or designs.

IJM Land understands Malaysians’ need to end their renting days and has taken many initiatives to ensure that their dreams can become a reality. Hence a robust collection of incentives, savings and perks alongside wonderful campaigns have been tailored to fit the varying needs of different home buyers.

Novel Solutions to An Old Conundrum

IJM Land has formed a strategic partnership with RHB Bank Berhad (RHB) to bring forth a buy-back scheme for home buyers and homeowners. This scheme marks its entrance as the first-ever innovative financial solution in the property industry - SWITCH.

The SWITCH Scheme allows homeowners to return their property to the developer in the event of involuntary unemployment by their employers during the coverage period, from the date of the Sale & Purchase Agreement and up to a 12-month period from the date of CCC (Certificate of Completion & Compliance).

Two projects, Savvy @ Riana Dutamas KL and Duta Perintis Apartments @ Bandar Alam Suria, will kick start this pilot scheme. Savvy @ Riana Dutamas KL is a freehold serviced residence with a built-up size ranging from 722 to 1,232 sq ft. Conveniently located near KL City and close to public amenities, the property's starting price is from RM540,000 and is expected to complete by 2024. 

Duta Perintis on the other hand is a low-density apartment that measures about 850 sq ft, with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and along with two designated car park bays. Selling at an affordable price, starting from RM310,000, Duta Perintis is a must-have address for nature lovers and families.

“IJM Land has always been devoted to the aspiration of Malaysians who yearn to own a place called home. We are working diligently towards ensuring that their dreams will become a reality, and together with RHB as our partner, this entails the creation of value-added packages, one-of-a-kind campaigns, benefits and incentives that will make home ownership easier and less burdensome for all,” said Dato Edward Chong, Chief Financial Officer of IJM Corporation Berhad.

“We are proud to be working closely with established property development partners such as IJM Land to enable customers to buy the home of their dreams. SWITCH helps address some key challenges aspiring new homeowners face, including the possibility of involuntary unemployment. This allows them to step confidently ahead towards owning their own homes,” said Jeffrey Ng Eow Oo, Managing Director of Group Community Banking, RHB Banking Group.

Your Home, Your Way

Running in conjunction with the SWITCH Scheme is no other than the group’s first annual campaign, Living Masterpiece. Under this campaign, IJM Land is here to assist aspiring home seekers in owning their dream home by offering attractive deals and customise easy ownership plans according to their lifestyle and requirements. With that, IJM Land customers can create their own masterpiece in the property of their choice.

Imagine a home where the layout can be shaped according to your needs and desires, unlike the conventional products where everything has to conform with the blueprints. Get creative and let your interior design ideas go wild as you transform your home into Living Masterpieces. IJM Land is offering complimentary interior design concepts (selected properties) to IJM Land home buyers as home ideas and inspirations.

The Living Masterpiece campaign recognises that every individual has a unique personality which is best expressed through the homes they live in. The time has come for you to make your very own, an indelible statement in your work-of-art dream home. Homebuyers will also benefit from their customisable easy ownership schemes, great savings and incentives ranging from free loan legal fee, free stamp duty on MOT, and free furnishing packages (applicable to selected properties, and the terms and conditions apply).

Note that this campaign will cover projects under construction and ready-to-move-in homes in the Northern, Central Seremban 2 and Southern East Malaysia regions. The Living Masterpiece Campaign will run from 1st July 2022 to 31st December 2022.

When Dream Homes Become Reality

Home buyers can pick their ideal home from a curated list of choice properties across the state, ranging from single-storey terraces, double-storey terraces, semi-d, bungalows, bungalow land, apartment and condominium.

Choose from towering projects within the convenience of the city, or the picturesque houses poised at the waterfront. Nature lovers can find peace through the ample developments raised upon natural themes and greeneries. From Klang Valley, Seremban, Penang, Johor, Kuching to Sandakan, all these homes are designed with flexibility and practical designs to suit the post-pandemic lifestyle.

Master developer and town maker IJM Land inspires residents to live vibrantly and create cherished bonding moments together. Speaking of benefits, existing IJM Land customers can also participate in the Priority Programme, where they are entitled to rewards of 1% (silver), 1.25% (gold), and platinum (1.5%) on their new property purchases. These and many other considerations form the holistic package that is bound to make homeownership an easy and seamless experience for all, granting them peace of mind.
