Overcoming the complexities of purchasing a home

For many Filipinos, purchasing a home is a dream come true. Most grow up imagining what the perfect home should look like and how it should feel. More importantly, moving out of your parent’s house and getting your own place can be considered a major milestone in life. Soon, this is followed by getting your own family, having your first child, and many more firsts. These memories, of course, painted upon the canvas that is your home.


All of a sudden, you think of the many firsts that you might experience in your new home. In those fleeting moments of speculative joy, you’re suddenly grounded by the stark reality that it might not be as simple as you think. As your thoughts come around, several questions appear like tall walls meant to stop you from dreaming at all. You begin to consider the welfare of your children, the proximity to their schools, spaces where they can learn and grow even within your home, all of which build towards their future.  These are some basic questions one asks pertaining to the feasibility of investing in or owning new property. 

But there’s no need to trouble yourselves with worries. Here are a few action points you can do in order to make sense out of the complexities of purchasing a home.

Brush Up On The Subject

An old adage goes, “knowledge is power”. In any context, it always pays to be well informed especially for as big of a decision as purchasing your very own home.  First and foremost, you need to learn how to speak the language of real estate. 

A great way to do this is to simply associate yourself with real estate professionals. Their expertise will greatly help you in choosing the right property. Do some research about their credibility and experience.  It’d be great to build relationships with these people and do what every eager learner does: ask questions. Particularly, the following:

What do you need to know about the prospects in choosing the right property?

What should you look for in a property?

Which developers are the most trustworthy?

How are appreciation rates calculated?

What resources should you subscribe to?

The guide questions above will help you refine your options. These can also help you reliably do background checks on an available property to know if you’re either getting the most out of your money. At the end of the day, knowing what your property is valued at allows you to appreciate it on a deeper level.


Visualize What You Want

One crucial factor in determining whether or not you must invest in a certain property can be summed up in one short sentence: What do you want?

Whether it’s a specific condo floor plan or a location, it is important to list down what you need and what you want to narrow down your search. If you’re looking for condominiums within Metro Manila, it’s important to check its proximity to places of interest like schools, shopping malls and restaurants. Amenities like gyms and swimming pools are also important considerations to make if you’re a health conscious person. Make sure that the property you’re purchasing meets the quality you deserve. 

If you’re looking for a property that is conducive for extensive learning and for growing a happy and healthy family, The Arton by Rockwell is one of Rockwell Land’s developing Metro Manila Real Estate projects that seeks to make the mundane marvelous. So if you’re visualizing the same kind of life for yourself or your family, then maybe The Arton is where you might want to be.

Get a Feel of the Property

A good developer has a signature lifestyle that is achieved through how they maintain the environment and take care of its residents. More often than not, this style is something that members of the residential community exude. If you want to get a good feel of the neighborhood you’ll soon be a part of, engage in conversations with property owners from different developers. 

Get to know the members of their staff as soon as you have a chance to meet them. Establishing rapport with these people not only makes for an excellent impression, you also find out how accommodating they are.

As mentioned earlier, building relationships with real estate agents and developers can help you understand the landscape better. It can also help you connect with other people who, more or less, have a lot of insight on property. Listen to what they have to say about the property in question, whether they work for it or for its competitor.


Additionally, you should also visit their showroom to feel a sense of how your home could look.  Most developers have this option available for prospective buyers.


Overall, owning your dream property is possible through purposeful and knowledgeable research, extensive relationship building, and an iron-clad will. If you’re looking into a property that guarantees premium living and stands as a testament to, then The Arton by Rockwell is for you. This may not be your first home, but it can be the first purchase that can create infinite firsts for your family.
