BENEFITS OF RFO UNITS: House-hunting in the time of COVID

    The Capital Towers along E. Rodriguez, Quezon City.

    House-hunting during the pandemic has highlighted the benefits of ready-for-occupancy (RFO) units where buyers can personally inspect their new home before signing the check.

    RFO units are fully-constructed properties readily available for move in for new owners.

    “RFO properties address Filipinos’ need to move into safer, integrated homes as soon as possible, so they can start their new life immediately,” said Federal Land Inc. sales group head Margarita Saenz- Resurreccion .

    According to Resurrecion, homebuyers are now looking for homes that are within walking distance to essential establishments like business hubs, retail malls, schools, restaurants, and hospitals.

    Future owners of RFO developments could also immediately make full use of the property’s amenities and facilities.

    A popular scheme , lease-to-own plans is also an advantage of RFO units.

    A lease-to-own or rent-to-own plan is much like a tenant-to-renter agreement, except that the renter can get exclusive rights to the property after a specific period. This helps buyers manage their amortization payments better or give them time to strengthen their financial position while already living in their ideal home.

    RFO properties in central locations guarantee convenience, accessibility, and security with or without a pandemic.

    Homeowners will enjoy these benefits and more at some of Federal Land’s properties that offer RFO units.

    Resurrecion said Federal Land offers RFO units built with the same quality as every residential project it develops – safe, secure, and efficiently-designed.

    Federal Land’s The Capital Tower along E. Rodriguez Avenue in Quezon City is only a three-minute walk to S&R New Manila, a 10-minute walk to St. Luke’s Medical Center, and a 10-minute drive to the University of Sto. Tomas.

    Residents of One Wilson Square in Wilson street corner Ortigas avenue, San Juan City can take advantage of its proximity to major retail establishments such as Greenhills Shopping Center, tschools such as La Salle Greenhills, Xavier School, Immaculate Conception Academy, hospitals like the Cardinal Santos Medical Center, and the exclusive Wack Wack Golf and Country Club.

    Residents at The Capital Tower can let off some steam at the lap pool or jogging paths, while those living in One Wilson Square have access to amenities such as recreational pools, lawn and gazebo, fitness gyms, and recreational rooms.

    “Real estate continues to evolve to keep up with the changing lifestyles of homebuyers.

    Even so, residents could ultimately rely on the availability of RFO properties that can immediately cater to their needs amid today’s uncertainties. RFO properties are ready to give them a better living experience, more importantly, allow them to move in at the soonest possible time and start living the good life in their new home.” Resurreccion said.
