Share via:

In these trying times, it is important to check your priorities, save, and invest. These priorities include having a secured home or condominium. Unfortunately, choosing the right home for you and your family is not easy. There are many things to consider and decisions to make. That’s why Vista Residences helps by offering security in every sense to all millennials, OFWs, or any investors. 

What are the essential condo checklist for all prospective condo buyers?

Doors and Windows

Securing the doors and windows of the home you are planning to reside in is very important. It is an essential part of the home that needs to be assured to each homeowner.  In addition, the role of the windows is also necessary as it allows the passage of air, and light. 

This is where Vista Residences comes in as they make sure that doors have a tight seal when closed, making it safer for each homeowner also. In terms of windows, they must be built strategically to be easily accessible. There are actually units with balconies that can be a choice for those who love to feel the fresh morning air or the cold breeze at night. 

Plumbing and Electrical

Checking to see that the water is running and whether there are signs of past water damage or current leaks around all fixtures, sinks, pipes and appliances is also essential. No one would want to move or go to the bathroom with leaks and scattered water everywhere. With regards to electricity, in today’s fast changing world everyone has already become aware of its importance and the struggle it can bring once gone. 

As plumbing and electricity can become a major problem, Vista Residences takes responsibility in ensuring that quality and accurate materials are used. Especially nowadays that flooding and power outages are something that society faces once or even twice a year. In addition, Vista Residences makes sure that any and all problems can easily be addressed or reported to the property manager. 

Kitchen and Bathroom Area 

It is commonly said that the kitchen is the heart of every home, and the bathroom is the space to get refreshed. These places have cabinets and drawers that are easy to open and close. Making sure that there are no gaps in the caulking around and checking if everything is in clean and in good condition is still a satisfactory thing to do. 

While this might sound surprising, these are actually the places that are important and are called the favorite of most people. The reasons are either cliché or personal but it definitely matters. Some condo properties, like Wil Tower and Symphony Towers, have AllHome and Quick Fix at the ground floor making it hassle-free and accessible to incoming unit owners. Besides this, it is also their way to keep up with the different trends and upgrades that can be made for easier experience with your condo kitchen and bathroom.

Ceiling and Floors 

Making sure that the ceiling and floors have no damage such as loose floorboards, tiles, or carpeting should also be in the checklist. As this might indicate water damage from above or below.  In other scenarios, loose tiles can be a reason for injury and reporting it in advance can also help your neighbors and the whole condominium too. 

In the same way plumbing and electrical are planned this is also something to assure future homeowners. Which is why the company allows future home owners to check and ask questions about their unit through site visits and virtual tours. Vista Residences has actually been awarded by BCI Asia as one of the Top Developers in the country. This is definitely something to recognize and be mindful of when buying a property.

Association Fees and Regulations 

Apart from mortgage, living in a condo includes association fees for the upkeep of the property and its amenities. Reviewing the fees and asking about what are included in the payment can also help you utilize it better. In terms of rules and regulation, it is definitely a good idea to ask about the community’s house rules. These rules can include noise restrictions, guidelines about common areas and what to do during an emergency, and more. As this will help you know whether the community you are looking at is really a good fit for you.
