Meanwhile, according to BTN data, housing demand continued to increase every year by 400 thousand units. While the number of housing developers was still not so much. "In Indonesia, the number of people who choose to work as property entrepreneurs is only 3.1% of Indonesia's population," Mahelan said.
While in Singapore, he continued, it had touched 7% and China had more than 10%. For Mahelan, this was a great opportunity. Students, he said, were not only likely to become property entrepreneurs but also can invest. "Land prices continue to rise, while asset values also continue to increase," said Mahelan.
In line with Mahelan, UMM Rector Dr. H. Fauzan, M.Pd also said that literacy about property also needed to be obtained by students. Apart from exercising independence, being a property entrepreneur had a bright future. "Property literacy is important to get a clear picture of the future," Fauzan said.
