Stop renting, start owning now! | 5 things to consider before moving to your own home.

Many Filipino families start renting a space before moving into a more permanent address, thinking that this is the most cost-effective way. However, in many instances, investing in a home is actually more economical in the long run. Instead of having your hard-earned money going to rent, it is much better to invest in a real estate property, the value of which rises year after year as your family grows. More importantly, your home would be in your name.

“Moving to a home of your own is a big step for every family. A lot has to be considered from location to financing among others. This is why we, at RLC Residences, commit to providing home solutions that are dedicated to addressing the urgent and long-term needs of a modern Filipino family,” said RLC Residences Marketing Head Karen Cesario.

RLC Residences has rounded up a list of things to consider when making the shift from renting to moving to your own home:

RLC Residences.

1. Location
Most of the time, people rent because they want more affordable access to the city where offices, schools, malls, hospitals, and other essential establishments are located. Amid the new normal, being able to walk or bike to the places you need to go to is now also a main consideration. Most of these qualities are available on properties situated in key locations such as RLC Residences’ The Trion Towers in Taguig, The Radiance Manila Bay in Pasay, and The Magnolia Residences in Quezon City.

2. Availability
Availability of the unit is crucial for current renters, which is also an advantage RFO units offer. Once paperwork and requirements are complete, you can move in immediately and settle into your own home. So if you’re ready to shift from renting to owning your place that you want to use right away, check out available one to three-bedroom flats in The Trion Towers, studio to two-bedroom homes at The Radiance Manila Bay, and one-bedroom RFO units at The Magnolia Residences.

3. Amenities
Amenities are one of the things that hook buyers into investing in a home. And rightly so. With people spending more time at home, it’s important to be able to use the gym, the pool, or function rooms when the need arises or at the homeowners’ most convenient time. With RFO units, these amenities are ready to use upon move-in. No waiting required. Plus, there’s no need to spend more on memberships outside because you can use these amenities for a minimal fee or none at all.

For example, at The Trion Towers, you can use its 32 wellness and recreational amenities such as the outdoor and indoor pools, the kiddie play areas, gym and yoga, and pilates rooms. At The Radiance Manila Bay, its outdoor pool area is ready for you should you need to unwind, while its videoke room and private theater are bookable for some family bonding. On the other hand, The Magnolia Residences’ amenities such as lounge areas, yoga rooms, function halls, and outdoor pool and play areas are also ready to use once you move in to your home. 

4. Security
Beyond the actual unit, homeowners must also think about how the property is protected. More importantly, how your family is safe and secure within the walls of your home. RLC Residences’ RFO properties, for example, have CCTV cameras installed around the premises. These are complemented with a team of security guards–on duty 24/7–who man the gates and roam the premises for maximum protection. Having a friendly and smiling face at the front desk, ready to be of assistance to homeowners, is also a big plus.

Knowing that your loved ones live in a safe neighborhood with people and technology looking out for them results in peace of mind and a sense of security.

5. Investment
Buying a home is probably the biggest purchase one can make in a lifetime. This is why it’s all the more important to find one that is worth your hard-earned money. What’s good with RFO properties is that you can literally check every inch of the unit before making the purchase, instead of basing a purchase off a model unit.

Additionally, promos and discounts are every homebuyer’s friend. For its RFO properties, RLC Residences gives a 10% discount on all units of The Trion Towers and The Magnolia Residences, while future homeowners can enjoy as much as 30% markdown on selected units in The Radiance Manila Bay.

“Moving into a home you can finally call your own after all the hustle and hard work is a milestone like no other. We are truly grateful here at RLC Residences that we get to help in realizing that dream,” shared Cesario.
