Economic and population growth, increasing urbanization, changing habits, new welfare requirements, and lower interest rates have led to increased demand for housing in cities. However, housing conditions in many cities are slightly alarming, while housing is a primary need for the community. Selecting housing for low-income people (LIP) that meets the criteria required by LIP is not an easy task. Because most of the decisions people made did not utilize detailed information. Therefore, a recommendation system for LIP is required. This study aims to develop the housing selection recommendation system for LIP that best suits their wishes. This study integrated two multi-criteria decision-making (MCDM) methods: the Best Worst (BW) method, which has fewer pairwise comparisons compared to other MCDM methods for selecting criteria and the Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS) method for determining housing recommendations for LIP according to their wishes. Based on the analysis results, ten criteria dominate the housing selection for LIP sequentially: Location, Land Size, Down Payment, Public Facilities, Price, Booking Fee, Home Design, House Specifications, House Quality, and Home Ownership Credit. Furthermore, the sensitivity analysis results showed that the robustness score of this approach was high. The model could recommend housing for LIP that best suits their wishes.
