Look around, look around! How lucky we are to be alive right now!

Have you not noticed that the world has been moving faster than ever in terms of modernization and progression? Don’t you want to be in the first row seats of the making of history? Live in a city where everything new and phenomenal unfolds! Living in a condo for sale, say Crown Asia’s The Courtyard in Taguig City, a city which could be considered the New York City of the Philippines, would be the right choice especially when you and your family want to be where everything and anything new happens!


Indeed, living in a prime condominium in a vast, busy city is really the ideal route to go in the 21st century. So when you and your family finally decide to move to one, you should ponder on many factors since, of course, you and your family deserve the best, especially when it comes to honing your homes. But, no sweat! We are here to guide you when you and your family are about to buy your very own condo to call your home! Here are factors that you must consider when buying a condo unit:

Location, location, location

You don’t want to live in the middle of nowhere, do you? You want to surround your dear children with a good, safe, and homely environment to have their first memories at. You want to enroll them in schools that are not only the best of the best but also very convenient to go to. You want to take your beloved spouse to the best restaurants that are just a stretch away for date nights. You want to avoid as much traffic as possible. This is why location is very important! Where you live is basically where your whole life will revolve around, so you must choose carefully when it comes to the location of your home. You want it to be in close proximity to everything you will ever need. And as an investment property, your condo building should be accessible and situated along main roads for you to have better choices of tenants.

Additionally, you also need to think about safety and emergency planning. Is the condo you are eyeing near fire stations, hospitals, and the like? Is it in a flood-free zone? Is it a safe neighborhood? These are the few questions you must keep in mind when looking for a new home.

Crown Asia’s top priority in building the best homes is location

The Condo community and amenities are a must in condo living

This is why amenities are such a great plus when it comes to homes!

Examples of amenities include a gym, party room, swimming pool, tennis courts, concierge, guest suites, and visitor parking.

The Fun part and Things to consider

One thing you should definitely consider when buying a condo is the payments you’ll make. Will you pay a bigger down payment or not? What is your condo mortgage? When you are in the condo-buying process, make sure that your finances are taken good care of as you’ll be making numerous payments for a period of time to the developer. It will be a huge shame if you’re investment ends up in the hands of the bank. It is also recommended to consult with a real estate agent or a real estate professional as they are knowledgeable when it comes to future developments and possible ways to pay for your unit.

Living in a condo building with many amenities and a building to manage takes resources. Thus, condo association fees are one of the things condo owners will have to face. The condo owner will pay a certain amount, depending on the developer, to the condo board for the interior and exterior maintenance of the building. Also, don’t start to think that once you’ve fully paid for your condo unit you are the king of the castle. You will still have to abide by proper etiquette and condo community rules.
