If you are looking for a new home then an Open House is one of your best options.
Century Properties presents these 5 reasons for home hunting to begin with an open house visit.
If you’re in the market for a home, a quick search online can give you a list of properties for sale within Metro Manila or in your preferred location. Clicking on links can be convenient, but nothing compares to going to open houses so you can see the property firsthand and envision how you’ll live in the space.
As its name suggests, an open house refers to a time when a house or a property is open for viewing by potential homebuyers. Property developers host open houses not just to give clients a chance to tour the property and its amenities, but to give them a chance to ask questions that can help them make a decision as well. If you’re looking for a home to call your own and you’re on the fence about joining open houses, here are five reasons why you should go the next time you stumble upon an announcement:
1You get to explore the neighbourhood.
While some prefer staying in the same area when house hunting, there are those who want to take a huge step by moving from one city to the next without question. However, such big move will require you to survey the area you’re eyeing. Are there enough transportation options? Is there a mall or a hospital nearby? Take note of these things on your way to the open house and see if it’s something that you can live with in the long run.
2You get to inspect the property and know more about what sets it apart from the rest.
It’s normal for house hunters to have a list of the things they want in a property. From coming home to a spacious balcony to having access to more than just one pool – we all have standards when it comes to investing in a property. Going to an open house is an opportunity to see what a developer offers – from gardens and water features, to clubhouses and other recreational areas.
Don’t be wowed by the amenities alone! Make sure you ask the agents about the services you can count on from the building administration, the maintenance staff, and the security personnel.
3You get to visit actual units and see if the sizes suit your needs.
Small-space-living can be fun and challenging, but many would want to have bigger cut units. It can be difficult to choose a unit type if you only have brochures and digital floor plans as guide. An open house visit allows you to walk around each and visualize how you’ll arrange your belongings in the space. Is it too small or just right for you? You can easily turn a studio unit into a cocoon-like space, but a one-bedroom home allows you to bring in more essentials. Before making a decision, make sure you imagine how you’ll transform the space into your own personal escape.
4You get to discover what you can and can’t afford.
How much are you willing to spend on your dream home? Attending an open house lets you have a one-on-one with a sales agent so you can discuss requirements, payment terms, and other financial concerns. Can your savings handle the downpayment or will the monthly payments run you dry? Don’t hesitate to ask questions as the agents are there to address your concerns and options. Do inquire if the developer offers special discounts or promos as these are usually on the table during open houses.
Even if you’re not in a rush to buy a home, you can still visit open houses so you can have an idea of how much you’ll need to prepare money-wise when you’re ready to make a big purchase.
5You get free design inspiration.
Model units in open houses are staged to give potential buyers a feel of what their future home would look like. While you’re still saving up for your dream home, take note of the different ways you can decorate your current house to make it more inviting. From changing pillow covers to bringing in more plants – there’s a lot you can do to give your home a quick makeover. While you’re admiring the look and feel of the model unit, do ask the agent if the units are turned over bare or if you can ask them to design it for you (if you have the budget to spare!).
