Cavite, being relatively close to metro manila had always been a hotspot for new homes. With existing house and lots already, you might have a difficult time choosing where to settle. Here’s an article on how to find your perfect home in Cavite.
According to Manila Times, with its proximity and ease of journey to Metro Manila, the “Historical Capital of the Philippines” is most viable for business development as well as residential communities. Located on the southern shores of Manila Bay in the Calabarzon (Cavite-Laguna-Batangas-Rizal-Quezon) region, Cavite is one of the most industrialized and fastest-growing both in economic and population provinces in the country.
Through the Manila-Cavite Expressway or Cavitex, and soon the LRT-1 Cavite Extension, the Province of Cavite offers itself as an attractive option for those who prefer to live outside the metropolis or those who want to establish business enterprises within driving or riding distance to the National Capital Region. LRT Line 6 would further extend the train system all the way to Dasmariñas from the end of LRT-1 in Niog, Bacoor City. Besides the anticipated operation of LRT-1, there is also a Metro Star Ferry service from Cavite City to SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City. Other infrastructures that connect Cavite to the rest of Luzon include the Muntinlupa-Cavite Expressway (MCx), which connects South Super Highway to Daang Hari; the Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAx), bridging Cavitex and SLEx; and the North Luzon Expressway (NLEx) and South Luzon Expressway (SLEx) connector road. The Sangley International Airport in Cavite City would be another boom generator when finished. These transportation networks provide Caviteños easier access to business, entertainment, leisure, and tourism activities even as they stay in a province where the population is not as crowded as the metro and the cost of living is relatively lower. The price of land, however, has multiplied over the years.
Cavite is a first-class province with over a thousand industrial locators scattered throughout 32 functioning economic zones and industrial estates, with a focus on export, logistics, facilities, and information technology. It also boasts over a hundred small, medium, and big businesses spread among its seven cities and 16 municipalities, as well as 350 bank branches that serve nearly four million citizens. De La Salle University, Lyceum of the Philippines University, San Sebastian College–Recoletos de Cavite, Polytechnic University of the Philippines, Philippine National Police Academy, and Cavite State University are among the 75 private and state-run colleges and universities in Cavite. Residents, many of whom are relocating from the congested NCR, have flocked to the province, where real estate developers have arrived in droves to provide a diverse range of possibilities.
Increased urbanization, an infusion of multinational firms setting up shop, and the creation of BPOs to assist worldwide conglomerates have all helped to the Philippine real estate market’s continuous ascent, which has witnessed consistent growth despite the COVID-19 pandemic. This indicates that real estate values in Cavite, which is part of the Greater Manila Area, are comparable to, if not better than those in Makati and BGC’s Central Business Districts (Bonifacio Global City). Indeed, prices for houses and lots in Cavite, as well as commercial structures and properties, have increased steadily from 2018 to 2021, with experts predicting a continued increasing trend through 2025. This is good news for both buyers and investors: the high level of demand in Cavite real estate implies that both can invest small and gain large. Property values are only going to rise as Cavite is gradually folded and merged into the projected Mega Manila zone, which is wonderful for investors, but also great for homeowners, who will be purchasing a home in an area that is expected to witness considerable urbanization in the coming years.
Are you ready to purchase a home in Cavite, one of Metro Manila’s most well-connected provinces? Although purchasing a home may appear to be a complicated process, there are a few things you can do to make the transfer as smooth as possible. It is critical that you complete this task because it will lead you to a better life!
Here are the Tips on how to find your perfect home in Cavite:
1. Check Your Finances
Before looking for properties, you should assess your financial capabilities. You should confirm how much you can pay as a down payment upfront and how much your ideal monthly payment is. You should make a list of your household income and monthly expenses. One thing you should look into is how much rent you are paying. This total is typically the primary reason why someone would buy a home. Payments for houses and lots range from 5 to 20 years, so it’s a big decision that should be preceded by a Financial Plan.
2. Consider the nearby Establishments and Schools.
It is essential to speak with each individual about where and how they commute to work or school, as well as other details such as the locations of their current clubs, churches, and/or owned businesses. This is critical because relocation will literally change lives, and if done correctly, it will change for the better. After you’ve gathered this information, you’ll be able to line up in on an ideal location for your next property.
3. Consult with Someone you Trust
You should talk about your decision with someone close to you so that you can get another person’s perspective on it. This could be your significant other, your parents, a sibling, or a close friend. Inform them of your plans and solicit their feedback. Most of the time, they will be able to remind you of certain things that need to be addressed first, or they will be the ones to encourage and support you in your purchase. They can also accompany you to the project site!
4. Go to a Reputable Developer
You should anticipate that your real estate developers will have a good website as well as a good Facebook page. The quality of these pages reflects how much the real estate developer values their customers. On the Facebook page, you can also find company content as well as reviews from current homeowners. Bria Homes Inc., www.bria.com.ph is a good example of a website. The real estate website contains all of the virtual tours for all of the units that are being sold, as well as financial information, a step-by-step process, and all of the requirements. You can also chat with their sales team right on their website.
5. Communicate with the Developer
We strongly recommend speaking with the real estate developer’s sales team rather than brokers and agents. Though brokers and agents can be trusted with all of your real estate needs, in-house sales teams may be able to offer you special promotions and discounts that only the developer can agree to. As a result, we recommend starting with official pages and websites. However, some developers do not have a large enough in-house team and instead rely on accredited agents to answer questions on their behalf and offer you the same promotions (if you ask for it). You should inquire about their unit types and inform them of your budget. This ensures that they can provide you with the best property for your budget.
6. Visit the location site
You should visit the project site whenever it is most convenient for you, though it is preferable if you can do so on weekdays! During the week, you can actually see the usual traffic around the property, which means you can get a better estimate of the subdivision’s accessibility. Visiting on a weekday also has the added benefit of being individually guided through the properties. The sales team can then accommodate you for a longer period of time and answer all of your questions. We recommend that you take photos and videos of the property to show to your family and friends.
7. Talk to the Current Residents
This may require some effort, but speaking with current subdivision residents can provide you with extremely valuable information about your purchase. You can contact them by visiting the subdivisions’ Facebook pages or groups and sending them a private message. You can also read reviews about the property online.
8. Communicate and Negotiate
When speaking with a company representative, make sure to ask for all relevant information, particularly those pertaining to requirements and payments, as well as the turnover units. You should inquire about the documents you will be signing and request a copy for your review. You should also negotiate for promotions and/or possible discounts, especially if you saw such promotions on their website or Facebook page in the past. Especially Bria Homes Inc. offers a wide range of their promos nationwide!
