Tips before buying a Condo

CHECK THE LOCATION

Accessibility is an important factor when choosing a condo but oftentimes the better the location, the higher the price is. It is good to know that there is a project that is strategically located in the heart of the city yet is reasonably priced compared to other projects within the Metro. Elements Eco-efficient Residences which is conveniently located at Barangay Kapitolyo, Shaw Blvd., Pasig City is near the key areas within the Metro.

SURROUNDINGS

Thoroughly check out the surrounding areas that you want to invest in. Nobody wants to live in a place where the neighbors are noisy and rowdy. Also, check if there is a factory nearby as you don’t want to be disturbed with all the noises that will be emanating from it. Make sure that it does not suffer from flooding during heavy rains. Moreover, visit during night time, check if it is safe and secured. Lastly, go there during rush hour traffic. Rule of thumb: Personally check out the place. Get all the facts as you don’t want to spend your hard-earned money living in an inferior surrounding.

KNOW THE DEVELOPER

Another important factor to consider is to know the developer. Remember that you are investing your hard earned money and you would of course want to invest it to a developer that you know you can trust. Find out their past projects and look for feedback.

PROPERTY MANAGEMENT

Do find out if the developer or the condominium association employs a property management team that will oversee the proper maintenance of the project and proper implementation of the rules and regulations in the community.

KNOW THE TURNOVER CONDITION

It is important to ask this from your agents/brokers. Here at Elements Residences, the actual deliverables of our units have the following:
• Flooring – 60×60 homogeneous tiles

• Walls between units – cement hollow blocks, painted
