If there’s one thing we learned from the pandemic, it’s the importance of having a space where we can feel safe and relaxed. A home is a refuge, a place where time can be spent with the family, work can be done, and leisure can be enjoyed. Perhaps this is the reason why despite the uncertainties, there are still those who choose to invest in properties–most of which are millennials who want to have their place and families seeking to start anew.

With the continuous rise in prices of goods and necessities these days, you might be wondering if it’s a good move to buy a home. After all, buying a home involves shelling out your hard-earned money. Contrary to popular belief, now is the best time to secure your space as some real estate developers like SMDC are offering flexible payment terms and big discounts on condo units that are too good to pass up.

Why should you invest in a condo unit now:

1. Choosing a good location can save you from the challenges of heavy traffic

With many reporting back to the office and schools transitioning back to face-to-face classes, commuting every day can be challenging. Save yourself from stress-inducing traffic by setting your sights on developments in accessible locations.

Living close to commercial establishments, business districts, and life’s essentials can make it easier for you to travel from one place to another. At Shore Residences, SMDC’s gem of a development in the Mall of Asia Complex, you get access to gateways and transportation options. The Ninoy Aquino International Airport and the Skyway are only a few minutes' drive away. Once done, the planned Integrated Monorail System can also be enjoyed by residents.

Living through a pandemic also opened our eyes to the importance of having spaces where we can stretch our legs and decompress after a long day. While we can travel again, nothing still compares to having amenities you can maximize without leaving the premises of the property you live in.

Awarded as the Best Condo Landscape Architectural Design by PropertyGuru Philippines, Shore Residences brings the feel and vibe of resorts to your doorstep. It has hyper0sized pools, fully equipped gyms, landscaped gardens, and jogging trails that weave through the lush greenery and pools. Whenever you feel like unwinding, all you have to do is step out of your unit, take a swim, or maybe sweat it out at the gym.

If you’re not looking for a space you can use at the moment, a condo unit can also be turned into a source of extra income. A unit located in an accessible location and with top-notch amenities makes for an enticing space for rent. SMDC takes pride in its property management services and leasing services that can make it easier for you to earn from your condo unit investment.

4. You have the option of choosing a unit that suits your needs

Do you prefer having a view of the city or a view of the beach-inspired amenities? Are you looking for a one-bedroom home or will a two-bedroom be better? Whether you’re a young professional on the lookout for your first home or a small family ready for new beginnings, options await at Shore Residences.

5. You can take advantage of big discounts and move-in ready units

SMDC is committed to making luxurious spaces attainable for more Filipinos. To empower more buyers to make practical homebuying decisions, the property developer has launched its Move In Now campaign which makes buying a property more enticing.

With the Move In Now campaign, buyers will be able to enjoy a 10 percent discount upon reservation on select SMDC RFO developments across the country.

If you’re ready to invest, a unit at Shore Residences may just be what you’re looking for as you can live in it or earn from it, too.
