Pre-selling or Ready for Occupancy: Which One Is Best For You

May 30, 2021

The real estate industry has continued to demonstrate resilience despite the coronavirus pandemic. In the Philippines, different kinds of new housing units grew by 27.1 percent in the second quarter of 2020. One of the main contributors in terms of area and housing units is condominium properties located in Metro Manila.

In the capital area, the premium real estate market continues to be an attractive place, especially those in a strategic location and close to commercial establishments, colleges, hospitals, major highways, and central business districts. The prime condominium developments in and around the metro are growing steadily.

Apart from competitive prices, discounts, and offers, the option between pre selling and a ready-for-occupancy condo property is one of the most important decisions that a property investor or buyer makes.

To assess which option is better for you, here are the details that you need to know between pre-selling and ready-for-occupancy condominiums in the Philippines.

Pre-selling Condo

Preselling or also called off-plan properties sold by the real estate developer in advance before its completion or even while still being planned. It can be difficult to understand for some property buyers, particularly first-time buyers, to buy an expensive thing that is totally non-existent or still on plan. But here are the benefits and advantages of buying a pre-selling property.

Best unit options

During the pre-selling stage of the project, the buyer or investor can exclusively choose an ideal unit located at an early phase, such as those facing the best unit view, ideal level or floor, and best units. Prime condominium developments are highly sought-after because they provide accessibility ad a fantastic view of the area.

Steady source of income

The buyer can opt to rent it out once the property is completely finished and is now ready for occupancy, and the buyer earns asteady cash flow through this.  One of the best examples is Airbnb where the property owner can earn more than the monthly dues of their acquired property.

Promising Investment

Some investors and buyers go for a preselling because of its lower introductory price. Its market value will increase by the time the property is finished. On top of that, the developers offer a discount and easier payment schemes.

Enough time to prepare financially

Purchasing a pre-selling property allows you enough time to financially plan yourself. You may use the waiting time for completion to begin saving after paying the reservation fee and initial down payment. It is also a convenient way to reach the property market.

Ready for Occupancy Condo

Ready-for-occupancy or ready-to-move-in properties are units that can easily be moved in by the buyer or new owners after the sale is finalized. It is a completed home that is ready for its new owner. Other than their availability, RFO’s also offers benefits and advantages which makes them more enticing.

Ready for Inspection

Looking for a prime condo property is exciting especially when you can visit the actual property for inspection. You can check if the unit deliverables are up to your standards, the actual view of the specific unit, the amount of light it gets, and the actual floor plan or unit cut that allows you to imagine living and decorating the property.

Ready to use facilities and amenities

It is one of the selling points in a condo property especially those projects with premium amenities.
