Tips on Condo Living and Real Estate Investing

Golden Haven and Vista Residences: The Best Investments for You

Growing money is something almost everyone does or strives to do. Aside from one’s respective job, people rely on investing as means to make additional cash. Cryptocurrency or property are some of the many investments made by the general public. 

Staying on the topic of cryptocurrency and property, these are the two top investments made by young professionals. 

In a recent finance project survey conducted by De La Salle University students, respondents chose Golden Haven Memorial Lots, Vista Residences Condominium Units, and different cryptocurrencies as the top investments to be made by people of their age group. Among 350 respondents, the demographics included being in the age range of 25 to 35 years old living in the south. 

This time focusing on cryptocurrency, it is the new investment especially popular among the youth. Despite being trendy, it is definitely not without its risks. 

One, cryptocurrency cannot scale up on the level of other financial giants like MasterCard or VISA. Even if the number of digital coins and adoption is exponentially growing, it still cannot keep up with the transaction speed of the said financial companies. The second risk involves persisting cybersecurity issues. Digital technologies will always be subject to cybersecurity breaches and hacking. On top of that, this has yet to be regulated by the government. 

In summary, cryptocurrency is a high-risk investment that additionally requires a lot of money to invest. That leaves Vista Residence and Golden Haven as more viable investment options. 

Why invest in Vista Residences?

Vista Residences is more than just a condominium developer that aims to provide housing for Filipinos, it is a company with a vision of the future of Philippine property ownership. 

Vista Residences is the condominium development arm of Vista Land & Lifescapes, Inc — the country’s largest homebuilder. Vista Residences is responsible for developing mid-tier to upper-middle condominiums across the country’s premier universities, and developed business districts.

Three values come into mind when Vista makes its properties available to everyone. First is Convenience, where they focus on building condos near developed business areas and universities. The second is Comfortability. The features and amenities are designed to deliver comfort at all times which makes condo living a worthy investment.

Last is Security, where one is not only safe and comfortable in one’s home, but a safe investment as well. 

Going back to the Convenience that Vista values, since they focus on developed business areas and universities, the target market mainly constitutes young professionals or start-up and SME owners, OFWs, and foreign nationals looking into investing for their children’s futures and wanting to have a “halfway home” in close proximity to the business districts. College students can be considered as throw-ins. 

From an investment perspective, selling points are high rental yields, accessible thoroughfares, relative cost-effectiveness within Central Business Districts (CBDs) and metro areas (you get more than what you pay for through investment propositions), a number of choices to choose from, ready for occupancy condos, proximity to universities opening up leasing opportunities for unit owners, and the name of a credible home builder as its mother developer; Vista Land.

In a recent merger within the Villar group, Vista Residences has taken over the portfolio of vertical projects that were previously subsidiaries of Vista Land & Lifescapes, Inc. Condos for sale range from P4 Million - P8 Million — perfect for the mid-market, while still providing options for the upper-middle market. 

While Vista Residences mainly targets major business areas like Makati, Taguig, BGC, Ortigas, they are expanding outside Metro Manila in places such as Baguio, Cagayan de Oro, and Cebu. As it continues to expand, the company is certainly key to the country’s road to property development. 

What makes Golden Haven a top investment choice?

Beginning with the latter, Golden Haven is the leader in the deathcare industry. A subsidiary of Golden MV Holdings, Golden Haven aims to develop memorial parks all around the Philippines to address the demand for death care properties. 

Aside from different services like Restoration and Make-up, Hearse Rental, Flower Arrangements, Golden Haven markets themselves as property sellers. Properties range from lawn lots, garden lots, Mausoleums, and Columbariums. 

In terms of price upfront, these properties above are quite pricey. However, just like in any real estate product, these properties increase in value. Golden Haven, in particular, surged in appreciation.  

With an annual appreciation of 20%, investing in Golden Haven lots now will grant you high returns in the immediate future,” the Villar-led company said in a statement.

That being said, this grants the deathcare company the power to promote investing in their properties as low risk and high reward — the ideal situation for any investor.

On the other hand, Vista Residence can make a case for themselves as well when it comes to being a great choice for investment. 

Due to the anxieties and uncertainties attached to a pandemic situation, many would err on the side of caution and be frugal. In spite of this, experts argue that now is indeed the time to invest in real estate.

One reason to invest is low mortgage rates. Right now, mortgage prices are dropping and are predicted to fall even more which makes buying easier. The second reason is due to low demand and high supply. With a high supply of properties, sellers are willing and able to attract more buyers by selling at a lower price. 

Among the different investment options, value appreciation is among the biggest factors in one’s decision to invest. 

According to surveys, Condominium Real Estate Investment value appreciation in the recent year went up to 10-15 percent annually. That said, property purchasing, particularly condos for sale, should be the top investment people make.
