Based in Petaling Jaya, Selangor the Association was established on 21 May 1970, then known as the Housing Developers Association (HDA) Malaysia. With effect from 13 October 2000, HDA was renamed the Real Estate and Housing Developers’ Association Malaysia or REHDA. From 13 pioneer members, REHDA has grown from strength to strength to position itself as a key partner in the nation’s socio economic building and today boasts a membership of over 1,000 developers across the Peninsular Malaysia, who are responsible for some 80% of the total real estate built.
REHDA is recognised as the leading representative body for private property developers, being involved primarily in advocacy and governance. Our members are involved in all types of property development, from traditional housing projects to condominiums, townships, towering commercial complexes, shopping malls, state-of-the-art golf courses, hospitals, theme parks and industrial estates.
Being the sole national representative body for property developers, REHDA plays a pivotal role in ensuring that developers’ views are heard by the relevant authorities and government agencies. REHDA is highly regarded by both the public and private sectors for its commitment to nation building and betterment of life through sustainable property development.
