Higher plot ratio better, right?

SP Setia: 800sf – RM170,000 and 900sf – RM200,000

Nope, that’s not a typo. It’s really the SP Setia with their Rumah Selangorku project. Slated to be launched soon.

Affordable not just focus of developers.

These days, developers whether big or small are focussing on affordable units. They are worried if they launch the more luxurious ones, it would not sell. They are right.
