It's been a while since the last time I wore my #HouseHopper hat but last weekend, for the first time in #Bicol I don it again to check the groundbreaking of a social housing project called #Bellavita in Brgy. Pacol #NagaCity. I thought I won't make it to the groundbreaking because of my travel and activities but good thing, I still made it on site!
#BellaVitaNagaGrandLaunch was held last May 25, 2019. On my way to the actual site, I realized that it's highly accessible via Del Rosario (alternate route). With the on-going road repairs and construction along San Felipe, I highly recommend to use the Del Rosario Road (diversion) for breezy drive to the site!
I highly recommend for directional signages to be in place because those who are new to the site might get confused which local road / street to take :-)
As for their location in Pacol, Naga City, it’s actually strategically located near 2 public schools and just few minutes drive from Ateneo de Naga Pacol campus. So for those who are starting their family but already factoring where to send their children and its accessibility, I would say that Bella Vita Naga is a promising real estate investment na sakto sa budget mo!
Sakto sa Location. Sakto sa Bulsa. Sakto sa Taste mo. Sakto sa Family Safety. Sakto sa Gusto mo!
"BAKIT ANG MURA?!" That's what my dad asked me when I requested him to accompany me to the site and check the groundbreaking / launching of Bella Vita Naga. I told him it's a housing project that mainly caters to Filipinos who are minimum wage earners, OFWs and even to locally employed individuals and families who are already tired of just renting.
I also told dad na pwede ring basic retirement house, especially if you want a place outside the downtown area of Naga! Or a real estate investment, which is actually tempting considering it's location, amenities and overall master plan! ;-)
For Bella Vita Naga, the POLI INNER house model is available for as low as Php 1,897 per month! For more information about this, I highly recommend you contact 0915-0076690 / 0929-2581155 or visit their office at Bella Vita Naga 2F Lemon Residences Bldg., Magsaysay Avenue, Naga City. You may also follow them on Facebook or read their development updates on their website.
Based on Bella Vita Naga pricing, Poli Inner is about Php 450,000* and Poli-End is about Php 600,000* and both are available for financing through PAG-IBIG, Bank, Cash, Deferred Cash and In-house. Kaya kung interesado kong magka bahay at lupa sa abot kayang halaga, contact them na!
Owning your own house and lot is now more achievable! SOON to rise on this site - - - your own #BellaVita home, sakto sa budget mo. Sakto sa'yo!
Watch for this development na sakto sa'yo! Based on the initial information that I’ve read about Bella Vita Land Corporation, they are currently available in 15 different locations and Naga City is the newest addition to their real estate development. Bella Vita offers quality homes in the country’s social enterprise communities, allowing residents to enjoy a comfortable living experience – from the house designs to the village features; one will get a sense of how living and livelihood may be seamlessly integrated.

First time home buyers are often trapped in hard decision making situations especially for most Filipino families who considers a lot of things before getting their own house and lot. Regardless of the urgency of the situation, buyers should never make a decision that would put them at risk in the future. Here is another helpful list of 4 common mistakes of the first time home buyers. I hope by reading this post, you'll avoid falling into the trap of any of these.
DID YOU KNOW that Amaris Homes in Cavite offers the model house ELYANA Basic with Floor Area of 46 sqm but with different lot options for as low as Php 1,274,050. You can reserve this beautiful townhouse for Php 10,000 only!
1) They do not have a concrete budget plan. This is where most of us should start. Its like wondering around the grocery store, looking for the stuff you need but you don’t have any idea how much your pocket contains. It could only result into two things; either you go over or under your financial capacity. Going over budget would result to debt, which nobody wants.
2) They cannot decide on what they need exactly. This is generally a picking error. One day you decide you wanted a two storey, next morning you want a duplex. You cannot make up your mind on what type of house, in which location from which developer. You end up having to reserve different units and retracting your decisions which cost you a lot of money. Before diving into the market, make sure you have the specific list of the things you are looking for in your future house.
READ my previous post for practical tips about finding your dream house and house with suggested different properties for you to consider.
3) Not being aware of the hidden/other costs. You might probably have a budget in mind and you stick to it, but you forget about the other hidden charges you may need to pay. This results to you, needing more money than what you expect to spend. Always remember that a good budget plan includes an extra allowance for other unexpected expenses such as documentary expenses, bank fees etc.

4) They forget about the after sales renovations. This is a common mistake for many first time home buyers. Once they have been presented with the model house, they instantly fall in love with the aesthetic aspect, forgetting about the fact that they have to pay for the interior renovations. So they forget to prepare financially for this aspect.
From bare unit...
To this... Remember that most of the actual turn-over units are bare so you have to allot a budget for interior design and other things you want to add.
Searching for your future home can be both daunting and overwhelming. I have seen a lot of first time home buyers make plenty of mistakes, either for buying a house more than they could afford or for not being happy about the result. Consider the guidelines listed above. Preparation is the key to success. Always consider the future.

When I first ventured into real estate blogging, I didn't have any idea about these House Hunting Terms so I ended up confused during my first site trip. With my regular site visits and interaction with helpful real estate agents from Driven Marketing Group, I got to know more about the jargons used in this industry. I think this will be useful for you too.
Single Attached VS Single Detached
Have you ever wondered about the difference between the houses that are attached and detached? As you might have been house hunting for several weeks now, you may stumble upon the options of several subdivisions offering these types of houses. How would you know the difference?
Single Attached means that a house shares a common wall typically on both sides of the property. A duplex can be considered as an attached one. It is composed of two dwellings in generally one structure. While on the other hand a Single Detached property stands alone and with extra spaces of lot around it.
Row House VS Town House
The idea of these two types is the same and that is wall sharing. Row Houses are single storey units while town houses are two-stories. Some developers would initially offer row houses because they cost lower and is preferred by young starters. Later once you have acquired the property already, you will be given the chance to construct second level if you desire more rooms. When it comes to the lot, the individual unit owners are responsible for their front and back lot areas.
Did you know that MyCitiHomes is known for their several townhouse projects in Cavite?!
Below is the sample row house model offered by NuVista
in San Jose Del Monte City, Bulacan.
Minimum Lot Area is 36 sqm with Floor Area of 21sqm
Total Contract Price is Php 650,000. You only need Php 5,000 to reserve this unit!

so that you can personally check Nuvista and other developments in Bulacan which are highly accessible to Quezon City especially to Fairview.
Multi-Pod, Inner Unit and End Unit
You probably have thought about getting Multipod units in some developers of your choice but you are confused which unit will you choose. Generally speaking, multipods are 3 – 4 units of houses attached / in a row. The two inner units will only have access to their front and back side of the lots but they are cheaper than end units as well. So for budget conscious buyer, inner units are advisable. End units are more expensive because the price includes the side lot usually provisioned for carports and small gardens.
I've noticed that End Units are usually the preferred by house buyers and most of the time they reserve it in advance. Chances are, you'll have more options when you invest on pre-selling properties like Bali Hai Residences in Imus, Cavite which offers END Unit with lot area of 91 sqm for a total contract price of about 2,051,888.
