Housing is one of the basic needs for human being. However, housing affordability stress has becoming an economic challenge to households in several countries, including Malaysia. Owning a house required large amount of cost and the rise in house prices had led to the decline in purchasing power among households. This indirectly reduced house hold affordability. The big difference between the affordability and the house price has forced them to live in low quality and uncomfortable home, improper amenities, hence it led to housing affordability stress on household.Thus, this study was conducted to achieve three objectives.
