They say that Christmas is the best time to buy a home. For the most part, it’s because of the financial perks. It’s raining promos and discounts whenever the holidays ring in, not to mention the 13th-month pay and year-end bonuses. But aside from the savings and spending power, a lot of people hit the property market during the holiday season because they want to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year in a new place.
For professionals who want to embrace independence, it’s one memorable way to start on the right foot. For young couples who have decided to grow their family, it’s a joy-filled testament to their commitment to each other.
If you’re one of these people who will be shopping around this Christmas, don’t forget to write down your wish list. If you’re looking to move to your first condo or buy your first investment property, here are the features it should have:
An Address Near Everything
Even in the age of the new normal where everything’s done online, it’s still important to be in a promising address. In fact, in this time when limited transportation options and restricted travels are the norm, you need to be in a location where you can get what you need without any hassle. In this case, go for condo developments that are in key areas, close to essential establishments.
Consider the projects from Vista Residences, which boasts of the “Professional Series,” a collection of condo developments within developed business districts.
Symphony Towers, located along Sgt. Esguerra Avenue in Quezon City, is a short drive away from big shopping malls, including SM North EDSA, Trinoma, and Ayala Vertis North.
With these promising locations, you won’t have to worry about long hours stuck on the road when going grocery shopping. During the holidays, you can easily catch Christmas shows and exhibits in these places.
Amenities Matched with Lifestyle
All condos offer leisure facilities for their residents, but what you have to look out for is a residence that would match your lifestyle. Take, for example, the condo developments of Vista Residences in Manila, particularly Vista Taft and 878 Espana. Aside from the usual swimming pools and function rooms you’ll see in other condos, these buildings feature study halls and wellness gyms, which allow student-residents to live their lifestyle to the fullest.
If your kind of recreation involves spending time with the kids, then Vista Residences’ Pine Crest is the right fit for you, as it provides family-friendly spaces. But if you believe leisure means luxury, then consider Wil Tower, which boasts of a swimming pool with jacuzzi, bar and lounge, and sauna. With these amenities, you can build a yearly Christmas tradition with family and neighbors.
Atmosphere of Safety
A sense of security is crucial when you’re planning to live alone or grow your family. Fortunately, developers have been stepping up their efforts to increase the level of safety inside their residential buildings. If you decide to move to a Vista Residences condo, you can rest assured that you’re safe inside the premises. All condos have 24/7 security services and facilities are monitored via CCTV.
Vista Residences condos are likewise safe, health-wise. The property managers observe protocols to reduce the likelihood of virus transmission inside the premises. For instance, in Vista 309 Katipunan, the management team are all equipped with face shields and masks. They also sanitize common areas regularly, including the hallways. Given this, you’ll be celebrating Christmas with peace of mind.
Add-ons Accommodating Convenience
You can expect relatively the same features across all condos. But for yours to stand out, add-ons are what you need to look for. Vista Residences developments have an AllDay Convenience Store and Coffee Project within its premises. Imagine the convenience of getting your caffeine fix in the mornings. This is what the condo lifestyle is supposed to be like.
What’s great about the condo lifestyle is it can accommodate you or tenants you may choose to welcome into your space someday. Take pre-selling developments such as Orwell Heights and Sky Arts Manila. Both are located near some of the best universities in Manila, making them a viable choice of residence for your future college kids or tenants. With units in these developments, you can find peace even amid a hectic city.
What’s on your Christmas wish list this year? If it’s a home, don’t forget the must-have features that can make your season celebrations merrier. If you’re looking to invest, it’s time to check out pre-selling projects to welcome the holidays with a sound investment. Whether you’re looking for a home or a property investment, there is no better time than now to give yourself the merry gift of property ownership.
