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.
