Shelter is one of the fundamental human needs other than air, food and drinks on the hierarchy of needs’ pyramid [1]. Other than this, housing plays an important role in people’s wellbeing, contributing to the physical and mental health, education, employment and security outcomes for individuals [2]. However, not all middle-income workers in Malaysia can afford to own a roof above their head, since the property prices are sky-high and the middle-income workers force to rented house or live at place which is far-flung from the city especially people who works in Kuala Lumpur. According to the Valuation and Property Service Department (JPPH), Kuala Lumpur has the most expensive house price in Malaysia with an average price of RM 718,755 in Q3 2015 [3].
