LIKE many special ‘firsts’ in life, buying a home incredibly exciting milestone around which memories are made. However, the process entails commitment and serious decision-making. While owning a home is a consistent life goal for most Filipinos, taking the steps to achieve it is an entirely different matter.
Before purchasing a home, you should first consider your lifestyle and preferences.
Location, property type, price range, number of rooms, parking space—these factors are either deal makers or deal-breakers. If you have sorted these out, you are one step closer to attaining your dream house.
Purchasing a home also requires financial preparedness. Thus, having a stable and reliable source of income is a good sign that you are ready to purchase your dream home.
Likewise, depending on your choice of payment method, you need to be committed to fulfilling a steady monetary obligation for months or years.
Being a homeowner gives you freedom. You no longer need to answer to a landlord and you can now have control of your space. This is an upside, considering that telecommuting is the new work mode and the home has assumed other important functions. Still, homeownership also presents challenges, like the regular upkeep and maintenance of your dwelling. If you can do this, it’s another requirement ticked off the list.
Purchasing a home can be a tricky and complicated process but only when lacking the essential information. Choosing the right way to start your housing journey involves looking for a platform that provides you with the expertise you need.
