Vista Residences has recently launched “Investment Lab”, an online web seminar series that aims to use the digital platform as a tool to share knowledge, insights and best practices and educate the public in real estate investment.
Launched last June 20 via the developer’s official Facebook page, the first leg of the series saw Vista Residences team up with realty expert Richard Thaddeus Carvajal, President and CEO of PhilGems Realty Corporation to deliver an hour-long talk on investment opportunities.
Aptly titled “The Millionaire Real Estate Mindset: Mind hacks to building your fortune in the real estate”, Carvajal shared key industry and market reports as well as valuable tips on where you can invest your hard-earned money.
With COVID-19 creating uncertainty across various industries and markets, one of the biggest concerns today is how to continue to grow your finances during this difficult time. Is it still possible to be a millionaire amidst a global crisis?
For Carvajal, given the right tools and knowledge anyone can achieve this financial goal. During the talk, he outlined different investment options to choose from such as bonds, stocks, mutual funds, and real estate.
While all of these have its own pros and cons, according to Carvajal, historically speaking, the property market has shown resilience despite major crises.
Compared to other options such as investing in stocks, real estate has proven to be less volatile and less risky. Under the right circumstances, real estate offers an alternative that can yield better returns and offer greater diversification. In some cases, it even outperforms stocks and bonds during a crisis.
“Buying any property can be risky, but investing in the right property can be rewarding,” says Carvajal.
He added that picking the right investment property is the most essential step to your investment journey.
“Choose a reputable and trusted property developer that offers diverse projects and has excellent property management and investment track record.”
For Carvajal, Vista Residences checks out all the necessary boxes as an investment option.
Vista Residences is the condominium development arm of Vista Land & Lifescapes, Inc., one of the leading integrated property developers and largest homebuilders in the country. Backed by decades of industry experience, Vista Residences has shown continuous revenue growth through the years, including expansion presence in key locations nationwide.
Vista Residences has diverse project offerings. Its “University Series” features a selection of mid- and high-rise transit-oriented and value-priced condominium towers strategically located within university clusters in top cities in the country.
The “Professional Series” meanwhile boasts of a collection of artfully designed high-rise towers that stand centrally within Metro Manila’s Central Business Districts.
Carvajal closes his discussion by telling the viewers to “not let their fears stop [them] from [potential financial gains]”.
“The key to becoming a successful real estate investor is to have the right millionaire mindset. Be financially disciplined and most importantly never stop learning.”
With the success of the first web seminar series, Vista Residences rolled out its second webcast in partnership with AllHome entitled “Spaces Re-imagined: Interior Design Trends and Space Planning for the Future” with Ms. Doris Dy, AllValue Holdings Corp. Design Director held last July 25, 2020.
The said webcast centered on interior design investing as well as the latest trends in condo interior styling and space planning. As part of the collaboration with AllHome, free interior design consultation was also offered to all Investment Lab participants and Vista Residences condo unit owners.
“We envision Investment Lab as a knowledge sharing platform where people can learn from industry experts and share their insights on real estate investment,” says Elizabeth M. Kalaw, Division Head, Vista Residences.
“Whether it’s planning for retirement, saving for your family’s future, or earning residual income, there is an investment strategy that fits your needs and your budget. Vista Residences is here to help you with that.”
