To Buy Or Build: A First-time Homeowner’s Guide

To Buy Or Build: A First-time Homeowner’s Guide

Now that you have decided to buy your own home, the next step is deciding whether it’s better to buy a house and lot unit package or lot only, and build your home by yourself.  

You may thinking that it’s best to get a lot only package in order to customize your home the way you want it. What a tempting idea, don’t you think? However, it may be more convenient of an investment to get a house and lot package instead. Purchasing your home from reputable developers such as CitiGlobal allows you to save time and effort in terms of managing the construction of your house while maximizing your budget.

In addition, it offers flexibility when it comes to home expansion or customization in the future since the design and layout are carefully planned to accommodate such needs. This assures you a home that offers the most value long-term.

Some of the advantages of buying a house and lot unit are as follows:

Saves you time and effort. Building your home from scratch takes time, effort and knowledge in construction.  Buying a house and lot unit, on the other hand, will avoid the hassles that come with house construction from sourcing to management.  

Moreover, you have peace of mind knowing that your house is being developed by an experienced developer who will ensure quality and guaranteed quality of your property.

 

Provides security. There is a lot of work that gets into building a house, and every one of those require payments. You need to take into consideration the inflation rates which may affect labor, material and equipment costs. This means that your initial house budget may increase as the construction progresses. You also to remember that construction expenses are separate from the land purchase.

Meanwhile, buying a house and lot unit gives you security that regardless of inflation or other factors, you will pay exactly as what you’ve signed up for. Most developers including CitiGlobal also offers flexible payment schemes which avoids the need for you to pay the full amount upfront. Plus, you’re assured that your payment goes into the construction of your house at all times.

 

Sensible house design and layout. Purchasing your home from a reputable developer ensures that the design and layout are tried-and-tested and built to last. Each unit are planned, designed and constructed to suit your needs now and in the future.  

We know that buying your first house can be a challenging process. This is why we at CitiGlobal makes it easier for you.

If you live in Tagaytay, your view is either picturesque Taal Lake or the beautiful rolling hills of Tagaytay. The view alone is worth it. Your grandchildren will probably trip over themselves trying to sleep over at your house in Tagaytay.

 

AN OPPORTUNITY TO EARN

With the investment in Tagaytay comes the opportunity to earn. Because Tagaytay has a great tourism sector, land values are sure to rise as well.

You can see your investment grow right in front of you while you live in it. What is more, you can open your house as a tourist bed and breakfast.

A WELCOMING COMMUNITY

Tagaytay is fast becoming a retiree heaven, and you can find yourself being constantly invited to parties with people your age. Sing and dance with your fellow retirees as you party the night away. Life as a retiree does not have to be boring.

What Makes You Different at CitiGlobal?

This is the time of the year, where graduates get to taste the “real” world as they enter the life of job hunting and now face challenges left and right due to the long process they have to undergo in landing a job. Unfortunately, companies set high standards in hiring, and prioritize someone who is either a graduate of a famous college or university or has work experience with pleasing personality.

Undergraduates, on the other hand, who have potential and possesses a good attitude and working habits are outrightly denied of the opportunity to shine due to lack of educational degree. They are now forced to look for jobs mostly contractual, depriving them of growth and even have to look for part-time jobs aside from their regular jobs for extra income. Along with their fixed minimum wages, they have little chances of yearly appraisal and salary increase.

Employees also know their limit when it comes to growth with uncertain chances for promotion depending on the nature of their work. With BPO industries, employees may be promoted only once or twice in their entire career. In the future these employees will eventually worry about the stability of their jobs since a lot of accounts close as companies venture into offshoring or outsourcing.

Unlimited Opportunities as a Marketing Partner with CitiGlobal

CitiGlobal sees the potential, and therefore, is open to hiring individuals ages 17 and up, who are passionate, trustworthy, hardworking and determined. The company believes that one’s lack of education and/or work experience should not be a hindrance to equal opportunities to be hired and excel in your work as a Marketing Partner, as long as you have the PASSION TO EXCEL, the DRIVE, and the DETERMINATION which pushes you to work hard and to keep an open mind.

The 5 Things You Should Consider When Buying Real Property

Let us say you are an OFW, working in the sweltering heat of the Middle East. Finally, after years and years of saving up, you are going home to the land of your birth – the Philippines.

But what to do with the money that you have saved? One thing you can do is to invest in real property. Real property has always been one of the best investments. It is a monument to the hard work that you have put into your job and is a concrete way to show how much you love your family.

The next question, however, is what do you look for in buying property? Here are the top five things you should be looking at when buying real property.

 


LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION

As the old adage goes, location is probably the most important factor in considering your real estate purchase. Is the property near a fault line? Does it flood regularly? Is there easy access to and from the property. All of these affect the real estate value as well as the enjoyment of your property and must be considered very carefully. For example, a property built on a faultline would have its value lowered immensely because of the potential for loss.

 

PROXIMITY TO AMENITIES

You also have to consider the amenities that are within your reach. Is there a nearby hospital? Does the police have visibility in the area? How about malls and commercial establishments? These all affect how the value of an area immensely.

 

GROWTH POTENTIAL

An area can have a sudden boom in real estate prices. For example, a property near a vibrant eco-tourism area might see their property values go higher because it gives you the opportunity to rent out your property to would be tourists. The same can be said if a big BPO set up shop near your property and would need housing for its agents.

Knowing which areas will grow is a good way of making sure your return of investment will come.

 

LOCAL REAL PROPERTY TAX MEASURES

Each city has its own real property tax schedule and rates. Some cities have higher tax rates while others have rigid tax schedules which have to be followed. Keep in mind though that higher tax rates can be justified by a city that is well run. Just think of it as your tax pesos going to work.

 


YOUR NEIGHBORS

Last but not least, are your neighbors. You cannot choose your family, but you sure as heck can choose your neighbors. When buying property, sometimes it may be necessary to see if you will get along with your neighbors just fine. It is not the houses that make a barangay make but the people who live in them.


CONCLUSION

The money you saved is hard earned. It took you blood sweat and tears to save up money to buy your dream property. Hopefully, with these tips, you can buy your property and you get to either maximize its value or enjoy it for yourself maybe  even both.

For any questions, feel free to message us. We will be glad to help you out.

Bossing Vic Sotto’s Tips to Success

Find out 5 Bossing Vic Sotto’s Tips to Success

CitiGlobal’s brand ambassador Vic Sotto, shares five essential tips of career advancement. Being at the top of his game in the entertainment industry for a long time, he has proven his credibility for mastering his field of expertise.

Staying on top is not mean feat. He wouldn’t have enjoyed a stellar stature if not for his charismatic personality and of course his good reputation. He has shown consistency in not letting fame get to his head and for keeping his feet firmly on the ground throughout his entire career. Now, we present to you Sotto’s notable tips to a long and successful career.

 

1. Start Your Career Early

Young people generally have the drive and energy to learn everything under the sun. Working early in life means more learnings resulting to more certainty and the assurance of a bright future ahead of them.

Sotto believes that starting early develops positive characteristics in a person. “Pag nagstart ka kasi nang maaga, you will become more mature, hardworking and determined. You learn as you make mistakes, and you gain more wisdom in the process.” CitiGlobal gives a chance to every person to grow.

It sees potential and is willing to invest in deserving individuals by teaching them everything that they
need to know.

 

2. Prepare Yourself to Make the Right Decision When Choosing a Career

Openness to different and creative ideas will let one discover his true self. With conscious effort in finding out his own interest, likes and vise-versa, it will be easier for him to know which path to take when the time comes that he need to make the significant decision.

Sotto agrees with getting to know oneself better and talks about how passion plays an important role in career advancement. Knowing oneself leads to a realization of his desired career, “Kung ang tingin mo sa ginagawa mo trabaho lang talaga, trabaho nang trabaho walang relaxation, iigsi ang buhay mo sa ginagawa mo, e. In other words kailangan mag-e- enjoy ka,” he said.

 

3. Think Outside the Box

Innovative thinking is what CitiGlobal embodies which sets it apart from other real estate firms. It is also the main reason Sotto agreed to be a part of this innovative company, “CitiGlobal provides leisure properties for hardworking Filipinos abroad. They can come home, relax and enjoy nature and unique amenities in their second home at CitiGlobal.”

“They can put their properties on lease and earn monthly when they are away from home,” he
added.

Working for a team with brilliant minds unleashes an individual’s inner potential. It challenges them to bring out creative juices that result to a successful output like the one mentioned above. Sotto talked about working with talented and creative people that molded him to where he is now “It’s part of the learning process. Working with a lot of talented people in the industry has opened me to different perspectives and creative ideas throughout my career.”

 

4. Flexibility is the Key to Innovation

If someone thinks of only one solution to a certain problem, it will just give only one result. But if one tries to come up with different solutions and is willing to take the risk, he will end up finding the best solution for the problem. “We have to think hard about the best solution to the problem. What distinguishes a successful person is his willingness and ability to adapt to different situations until he gets the desired results.”

 

5. Passion, Drive and Determination Line the Path to Success

Sotto explained that one’s stature and educational background is never the basis for success. A person who comes from the lowest status in the society but possesses the right characteristics has the same advantage as people who have all the resources to succeed in their career. “Everyone is worthy of success. With the right attitude and mindset, you are already building your way up to be among the most successful people in the country,” Sotto said.

CitiGlobal looks for people with potential and the right attitude, and provides proper training for those who have the passion to excel, the drive and the determination to succeed, keeping them open-minded. Teaching them to become independent, confident and result-oriented, the Company provides equal chances of success and the opportunity to become leaders for those who are deserving.

Five Reasons You May Want to Buy a Property in Palawan

Like an arm reaching out into the West Philippine Sea, Palawan juts off Luzon – an emerald jewel rich in ecological diversity. Many people know Palawan as a great tourist spot, but it is also fast becoming a hotbed of real property developments.

The savvy real estate investor should keep Palawan on their radars. The recent developments may find excellent returns on investment for you and your family.

Not convinced? Here we compiled the top five reasons why you should buy a property in Palawan.

 

IT IS A TROPICAL PARADISE

This beautiful island is the site of  some of the best beaches in the world. In fact, it is consistently ranked by Conde Nast  as one the best islands in the world. Home to stunning biodiversity and covered in virgin forests, this lush island is a sight to behold.

But is it just beautiful? What is the value for a real estate investor? Natural beauty counts for a lot in real estate pricing. A great view can triple the value of a property.

 

 

IT HAS A ROBUST TOURISM SECTOR

Tourism is one of the major industries in Palawan. With sights like the Underground River and El Nido and Dos Palmas just a stone’s throw away, tourists come to Palawan to get away from it all.

With this great beauty and a vibrant eco-tourism sector, come tourism dollars. A great tourism sector is one of the best drivers of value for real property. Investors are more than likely to find excellent returns because of tourism.

 

 

 

IT IS DISASTER FREE

Palawan holds an enviable position in the Pacific Ring of Fire in the fact that it virtually free of tectonic plate movement. Also, it is not regularly visited by strong typhoons.

A great fear of many a real estate investor is the prospect of force-majeure ruining property values. With a great location like Palawan, there is little to fear in that aspect.

 

 

IT IS HOME TO SOME OF FRIENDLIEST PEOPLE

Palawan is home to some of the friendliest people you can find. Residents have a  reputation for honesty and they boast some of the lowest crime rates in the country. Stories come out of how you can leave your things with tricycle drivers and never have to worry about losing anything.

A safe and peaceful living space has a great effect on property values and would continue to affect return on investment positively.

 

 

IT IS STILL RELATIVELY UNDEVELOPED

The fact that most of the land is still undeveloped means that it is a prime place to buy properties before property prices surge. As more and more properties develop, prices will eventually go higher and higher.

A good investor knows when to buy low and this is the perfect to invest and maximize return in a few years time.

 

CONCLUSION

Palawan has much to offer to any real estate investor. With many factors that positively affect real estate value, Palawan is poised to become the darling of real estate buyers for years to come.

Good thing that Citiglobal is developing a 13 hectare property right in Puerto Princesa, the capital of Palawan.
