Finding the perfect home in the metro | Lifestyle.INQ

OCTOBER 27, 2022

Condominium developments have increasingly become the perfect alternative for many homebuyers nowadays. With land becoming scarce and prices of lots in the metro soaring high, more families, couples and individuals are choosing to invest in a condo unit instead for practicality, accessibility, and affordability, among other considerations.


This rising demand has thus seen more real estate developers jumping into the fray to join a multitude of other players in providing residential condominium projects of different themes, prices, sizes, and value propositions-all claiming to be the wisest and most practical buy. To help you choose which project best suits your needs, Property Treasures has listed down a few things to take note of.



To ensure comfort and convenience, a homebuyer must choose a development that is near major thoroughfares and has access to public transport. Your new address should give you easy access to key areas and institutions, and enable you to live in the middle of a thriving community that can also serve as the convergent zone for various business, shopping, leisure, entertainment and educational hubs in the city.



Your home should always be your sanctuary and refuge from the hustle and bustle of the concrete jungle. Invest in a home that has the right features and amenities that would allow you to relax and rejuvenate after a stressful day at work. Always ask what amenities are available, check if these can be truly useful for you, and make sure that these are well maintained as well.


Density and surrounding environment

The number of units in each development is one factor that you should take into consideration to ensure privacy and quality. If a project has a lower density, meaning less units per floor, it means having a more comfortable experience for homeowner, thus giving you that much needed exclusivity, space and freedom.


Meanwhile, the location of a condominium is just as crucial to the quality of life that you will have. It always pays to look at the neighborhood and surrounding communities and decide whether this type of surroundings will be suitable for your whims and needs, as well as in delivering that secure and distinct lifestyle you seek.


Quality and security

Make sure that what you’re buying is something that can be enjoyed even by the future generations. Always check whether a development is “calamity-proof” by looking at its overall quality, including even its finishings and interiors. Units must also be fitted with the highest quality finishes and top brand fixtures that are easy to maintain and would last longer.


Safety meanwhile is something that can never be compromised. Thus, it is vital to ensure that a development is equipped with CCTV monitoring systems, security personnel, fire response equipment and other safety measures.


Reputable developer

Invest in a project that is backed by a reputable company. Do your homework and research about the history and credibility of a developer to ensure that it has a solid reputation in terms of delivering high quality projects.


One such developer is Empire East, whose Pioneer Woodlands provides all the necessary elements needed in today’s fast paced lifestyle. With its direct link to the Boni station of MRT-3, this project has become one of the most coveted addresses in the metro.


“Pioneer Woodlands is the only development with direct physical connection to the MRT and the first to create an urban sanctuary setup, which guarantees relaxation, quietness and comfortableness,” said Empire East president and CEO Atty. Anthony Charlemagne C. Yu.


The transit-oriented development is in close proximity to all forms of mass transportation systems in the country thus giving a premium on mobility and accessibility. The first to introduce the no downpayment terms and flexible payment options, Pioneer Woodlands is an intelligent investment for those looking at having their first home purchase.


“We provide wide living spaces with various options and guarantee to turn-over the units on time coming from a developer with a proven track record in construction and development,” Yu added. ADVT.
