Top considerations before investing in real estate

Fact: Everybody needs a home, especially during times when a home can be your only refuge from the threats of the pandemic. We have witnessed how important it is to have a place that can cater to our needs – be it personal, work-related, or even our lifestyle requirements. No wonder many people are looking for a home where all these are within reach. 

This is one of the major reasons why condo investment is an excellent opportunity for those who wish to build a solid future, whether in terms of quality living or financial growth. Aside from being an end-user, owning a unit can serve as your income-generating asset – be it thru rentals or by reselling it for a higher price. This way, a home can be a form of passive income that allows you to earn money with little effort. 

But first, you need to know the smart way to invest to make sure that your hard-earned money will be in good hands.  

1. Built by a trusted developer 

This is not a new thing to remember, but a trusted developer is a primary consideration before buying a unit. Given the amount you need to purchase a condo, you must be 100 percent sure that the company you’re putting your money into is trusted and offers high-quality properties. 

Start by checking their credentials and portfolio – how long have they been in the industry? What are their other projects? Do a lot of homeowners and investors trust their properties? These are some of the questions that you need to answer before decision-making. 

Experience and portfolio-wise, RLC Residences is a brand you can put your faith into. As the residential arm of Robinsons Land Corp., RLC Residences brings with it the company’s three-decade expertise of building beautiful and well-built homes seen in all of its residential developments strategically located in Metro Manila and Cebu. 

Properties by RLC Residences are a testament to its brand promise of raising the standards of living for an elevated lifestyle experience, allowing residents to live smart and productive while connecting them to their loved ones and more opportunities available. Having all these in any RLC Residences developments makes it a viable investment choice and a home that residents can proudly call their address. 

2. Located in strategic areas 

Strategically located along C-5 Road, SYNC Y-Tower gives convenient access to life’s necessities.

In terms of planning to rent out your property investment, a lot of people who look for potential homes consider location as the next main deciding factor. If the unit that you own is located in areas near offices, commercial hubs, and essential establishments, then there’s a high chance that yours will be their pick. 

SYNC, one of the many RLC Residences developments, is situated along C5 Road and provides convenient access to the bustling business districts in the Metro. The property has less than a 10-kilometer distance to Ortigas, Bonifacio Global City, and Makati, resulting in lesser travel time to and from work and more time to pursue other interests. It is also near hospitals and commercial establishments like Robinsons Galleria, Capitol Commons, and Megamall. 

3. Take advantage of pre-selling unit promos

There are multiple reasons why buying a condo during the pre-selling phase is considered a wiser investment. First, units sold while under construction have lower prices, giving you bigger savings because of multiple promotions such as introductory prices, launch discounts, and even flexible payment schemes. Add to that the increase in market value by the time the development is built and ready to welcome its homeowners.  

One of the RLC Residences’ recently launched condominiums is the SYNC Y-Tower, the second of the property’s four towers. Studio and one-bedroom units are all available for pre-selling, which means you can take advantage of the introductory prices, five percent launch discount, and flexible payment schemes available for a limited-time offering. 

4. Look for added benefits

Aside from location, what other advantages can your unit offer to your future renters or buyers? What will make them choose you over others? 

This is where the amenities come in. Living a condo life offers multiple facilities to its residents, and the better they are, the higher the chances that yours will be selected. Therefore, look for a property that provides the best amenities so you can use them as one of your main selling points. 

As a development envisioned to cater to the vibrant lifestyle of its future residents, SYNC has multiple amenities available for living, work, and play style of living. Aside from the retail shops available on the ground floor, SYNC has its own Swimming Pools, Fitness Center, Jogging Trail, Game Room, Private Theater, and even a Grilling BBQ Area. These and more elevates condo living because there’s no need to go out to unwind, relieve stress, and bond with family and friends.  

What’s great about SYNC is that it offers units with work-from-home spaces, another advantage that caters to the changing working arrangement of many urbanites. So if you are targeting working professionals with this kind of requirement, SYNC is the right home for them. 

5. Choose an Award-Winning Property 

If the condominium has gained recognition from local and international award-giving bodies, then you can be assured that your investment is in the hands of a high-quality developer. 

SYNC has already received multiple awards since its launch to the public. This includes the 2019 Best Value for Money Property by DOT Property Awards and the 2020 Residential Development Winner Award from International Property Awards.
