Why People Should Invest in a Condo to Skip Commmuting?

Jun 05, 2022

Traffic in the Philippines has always been one of the significant problems Filipinos have to endure every day. The heavy traffic on Metro Manila's main road, Epifanio de Los Santos Avenue, or EDSA, is a well-known example. The government has taken drastic measures following numerous complaints, such as reassigning police officers to traffic control. 

Traffic has also caused many people to stress because of the time wasted getting home or their desired destination. Many people consider condo investment because living in it means that they can live near offices, schools, malls, public markets, etc. Aside from the conveniences of condo living, it also allows you to have more time for yourself and your family. 

If you are a student and your family considers letting you move out for college, you should know the benefits of investing in a condo. College is an essential milestone in your life, mainly because this is where you are being prepared for the real world. This is where you are being trained to be the professional you want to be, and this is where you can strengthen your principles and values in life. Many people say that this is also where you get to meet the best people in your life that will be with your journey as you find out your purpose in life. 

But besides all the good and exciting things ahead of you, college could also be one of the most stressful years of your life. From all the subjects you need to pass to thesis defenses, you need to get approved, and of course, the organizations you have to join, college life could be pretty overwhelming. Just imagine going through all of these and worrying about the hours you need to finish all the requirements. You need to value your time and have a healthy learning environment to study and focus. And the best way to do that is to live in a condo!

Finding the right place to live during your college years is as important as choosing the right school for you. When you select the school, you and your parents have considered many factors before you get to land on one. Just like selecting the perfect condominium for you, you also must feel a lot of aspects and benefits of investing in a condo before buying one. Here are some factors to think about:

Proximity to your School

Most people find studying difficult because they have to stay up all night to meet academic requirements or be late for school. Fortunately, more condos have been built nearby schools and universities, allowing students to avoid traffic jams and arrive at school on time.

Conveniences of condo living

Besides choosing a condo near your school, you should also consider if it is nearby bookstores, craft supply stores, tutorial centers, transportation hubs, malls, and other student hangouts.

Moreover, unlike renting a dorm, owning a condo gives you the freedom to design, furnish, and use your unit according to your preferences. Would you like to make cookies for the entire class? That's fine. Do you want to wear your favorite shirt again this week? That's fine. Do you want to throw a study/pajama party with your friends? That's fine. You may have a stove, oven, and washer and invite your friends; however, there is a risk of fire, utility bills, noise complaints, and personal safety.

Safety

Some dormitories, especially in Metro Manila, are near dangerous and accident-prone areas. With 24-hour security, CCTV cameras, and a stricter entering policy for visitors, living in a condominium ensures a quieter and safer environment. 

It is also essential to note if your condo is near hospitals and government agencies like barangay hall and police station to ensure that your neighborhood is safe. 

Recreational Space

Earning a college diploma is difficult for most students. It's important to unwind, relax, and recharge from time to time in order to perform at your best and be ready for the next day.

Condo living allows you to relax and be fashionable. Most condominiums offer amenities like a swimming pool, fitness center, jogging path, multipurpose court, game room, hobby hall, study hall, landscape garden, retail shops, and restaurants not primarily found in dorms. This means you don't have to pay for expensive gym memberships and can work out whenever you want.  

Transportation

Another factor to consider is transportation. Although you are choosing a condo nearby your school, it is also an essential factor that transportation is easily accessible for you. This is especially true in moments when you need to go to a different place to finish a project, or you need to buy something that is not available within your location. Most condominiums gratefully are nearby LRT / MRT Stations, bus stops, jeepneys, etc.
