KUALA LUMPUR: Online registration for more than 1,870 affordable housing units in Klang Valley is now open for young working adults earning lower than RM5,000 a month.

A whopping 8,000 potential buyers have already pre-registered with Syarikat Perumahan Negara Berhad (SPNB) since October last year before the online launch of the apartment units which are priced at RM 145,000 to RM 190,000.

"Under SPNB's "People First Housing Programme (Program Rumah Pertama Rakyat), the two housing projects -- Laguna Biru and Alam Prima Phase 2, are catered specifically to Malaysians below the age of 35," said SPNB chairman Datuk Idris Haron during the launch yesterday.

He said the initiative for the projects came after a call from Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak who said more affordable houses would be made available for young working adults.

Around 1,224 apartment units will be constructed under the Laguna Biru Phase 2 project in Gombak, while 646 units will be constructed under the Alam Prima Phase 2 project in Petaling. Both projects are set to be completed by January 2015.

The online registration, which is open for 10 weeks from now, is for first-time housebuyers earning less than RM5,000 per month or with a household income of RM10,000.

"Once the applicant has registered online, they will be notified via email of the dates of the balloting. Through the balloting process, 1,870 successful applicants will be selected," he said.

Applicants can check if they had been successful on SPNB's website after the balloting process had taken place. Log on to www.spnb.com.my or call 03-2618 5448 for more information.
