Build­ing Nests

Sun Star Cebu Yearbook - - BUSINESS AND ECONOMY - BY RIANNE C. TECSON PHO­TOG­RA­PHY BY JONOLIN M. LUAB

NOTH­ING beats the com­fort that one gets from stay­ing at home. More so when the place you call home is the re­sult of all your hard work fi­nally com­ing to­gether in one piece.

Build­ing a house is hard work; you have to spend a lot of time, effort and, of course, money be­fore you fi­nally get to see the house you’ve been want­ing to have all this time. The same te­dious process is in­volved even for those who pre­fer to stay in con­dos— the struc­ture might be there al­ready but they ei­ther walk into a bare unit or find one that doesn’t look quite like how they want their space to be.

For bank ex­ec­u­tives Chris Camba and Riella Mae Guioguio, and HR of­fi­cer Ede­lyn Mae Jun­tilla, lo­ca­tion was a main fac­tor in choos­ing the prop­erty to get, next to how much money they would have to shell out.

Chris stays in a condo right in the heart of the city; he prefers that The Box, as what he calls his condo, be ac­ces­si­ble and con­ve­nient.

“Since I’m al­ways on the go, and I al­ways have ac­tiv­i­ties I need to do af­ter work or sim­ply have so­cials with friends, I pre­fer ( stay­ing here),” he says.

Riella lives some­where in the north, quite far if you’re used to get­ting to any­where in 20 min­utes or less. But she doesn’t mind the dis­tance.

“The sub­di­vi­sion ( may be) strate­gi­cally lo­cated near the mall, church and pub­lic mar­ket but it’s still a quiet neigh­bor­hood. And we’re free from pol­lu­tion,” she shares.

Cir­cum­stances forced Eds, whose fam­ily has been rent­ing for 29 years, to fi­nally get her own place. She works in Bani­lad, Cebu City so when she was scout­ing for a house to buy, she con­fined her search to prop­er­ties in the Bani­ladTalam­ban area.
