The five-day REHAB Fair-2017 that began at the Bangabandhu International Conference Centre in the capital ended on Monday on a high note.
Organisers said that the fair saw a huge turnout of visitors and created enthusiasm among realtors.
Organised by the Real Estate and Housing Association of Bangladesh, the fair attracted over 30,000 buyers as the housing companies offered different discount packages at the fair for buyers, they said.
They said that the companies offered up to 30 per cent discounts on the occasion of the fair but they were yet to estimate the number of flats and plots sold at the fair.
They said the REHAB would make public all the fair-related information today.
‘We have no unsold ready flat,’ REHAB first vice-president Liakat Ali Bhuiyan said adding ‘all the ready flats were sold out in the first two days of the fair’.
He said if they had more ready flats, their sales would be much higher but they also sold many under-construction flats.
‘Surely it was better than last year,’ he said, referring to the sales.
He said that the sector overcame business stagnancy as the banks came forward with loan facilities.
According to the organisers, this year 205 REHAB-member stalls, 24 cosponsor companies and 13 financial institutions along with 30 building material companies participated in the fair.
A number of buyers complained that the prices of flats were out of the reach of middle-income group of people.
