5 Reasons to Invest in a Condominium Unit


One of the most common investment questions nowadays: is purchasing condominium units truly a wise investment?

The Philippines is definitely enjoying a major surge in real estate growth with developments currently being built and those still lining up. The rise in the number of residential buildings makes it more attractive to people who have their eyes set on property ownership or investment.

As a booming metropolis, Cagayan de Oro continues to support the increasing investment opportunities coming in that led us to be on the 2nd spot of being the Most Competitive City in the Philippines for 2014. One of the sought-after developments in the city are the number of condominium buildings.

For the savvy investor, a good investment is one that yields the highest return on investment (ROI). But are condominium units considered a sound investment?

Here are some reasons why you should consider purchasing a condominium unit:

  1. Condominium buildings are mostly situated in prime locations (in between hospitals, malls, restaurants, etc.). This results to a premium resell price or monthly rental. Take for example Primavera Residences. Residents who opt to rent out their units can enjoy up to 8% rental return per annum.
  2. Developers such as ITPI Corp. can help you go through the process of renting out your unit through an in-house Asset Management Program. This ensures a convenient and hassle-free handling of your units for rent and assures you that your unit is secured, occupied and of course, enjoying good earnings.
  3. One of the biggest perks of condominium ownership is that the individual owners enjoy the support of the condominium association and the developer in the maintenance of the building, common areas, and facilities.
  4. In a research by a property listing site lamudi.com.ph, it shows that 69% of Filipinos prefer to rent than to buy. Therefore, properties for rent have bigger chances of being booked for long term rentals, assuring a steady stream  of income for the property owner.
  5. Condos offer amenities like pools, gyms, gardens, and so on. As for Primavera Residences, you can have your parties at its Multi-pupose Hall, relax at its overlooking swimming pool, be fit and healthy at its indoor gym, and be at par with nature in its indoor courtyard. These are major bonuses for renting or reselling.

Reselling or renting out a condo unit is a good investment opportunity to increase your monthly income. Since there is a noted boost in housing demand and a rise in Philippine tourism, the outlook for property investments is looking better than ever. It has also been observed that tourists consider condos as better alternatives to hotels due to affordability, a more homey ambiance, and additional kitchen amenities.

Developed by Italpinas Euroasian Design and Eco-Development Corporation, Primavera Residences is the first eco-friendly condo property in Northern Mindanao. It has two 10-story towers with commercial and residential units that are ready for occupancy. It was recognized the Best Mixed-Use Development in the Philippines by the International Property Awards at the recent Asia Pacific Property Summit in Kuala Lumpur.

Lumbia Elementary School Banduria Group Shines in Primavera Event


Talent is God-given and these kids sure have it.

With persistence, enthusiasm and passion, the group of pupils from Lumbia Elementary School take pride in their gift in playing banduria, a plucked chordophone primarily known to be the instrument of the Philippine folkloric songs.

Two years ago, when Ms. Vilma Larede, one of Lumbia Elementary School’s talented and supportive teachers, saw the students’ interest and ability to learn how to play banduria, she founded the group which is now known as the Lumbia Elementary School Rondalla.

“I am not only passionate about teaching these children, I’m also very honored to give them more of what I think I can impart to them—strengthen their talents and mold them into better individuals as they grow up,” Larede expressed.

The banduria players, some of whom came from Xavier Ecoville Resettlement Site after Typhoon Sendong hit their respective homes last 2010, continue to hone their talents in playing the instrument, while more kids from the school convey their interest in joining the group. However, lack of funds to buy more instruments for training is still the biggest hurdle that stands between them and their goals.

“The kids have grown to be passionate with their music. In fact, lack of funds doesn’t stop them from doing what they love to do. Their passion inspired teachers and parents to actively reach out to the public to solicit funds for the kids’ instruments,” Joy Talirongan, Lumbia Elementary School Principal, said.

One of the teachers, Mrs. Ramos, helped in soliciting funds for the group. Currently, four instruments came from Mrs. Ramos’ efforts and two more came from the Pedro Calungsod Foundation. The purchase of six additional banduria were made possible by the donations coming from kind-hearted, generous individuals. To date, the group is still accepting banduria donations for their ever-growing pool of talents.

“I am really happy that Ms. Jane Duterte of Primavera Residences appreciated these kids’ passion to play banduria,” Talirongan expressed.

Last September 26, 2014, as Primavera Residences celebrated the Topping Off ceremony of its second tower, the Rondalla of Lumbia Elementary School conducted their first ever out-of–school performance in the event attended by huge names from different industries in the Philippines and abroad.

“It was an experience I will never forget and these kids will treasure it the most. I do hope they [kids] have inspired many to appreciate the beauty of Filipino folk music,” Larede expressed.

Primavera Residences first came across the delightful group during their performance at the launch of the school-based feeding program where Primavera was one of the sponsors.

“Seeing these kids and hearing them play is indeed very inspiring. Despite the challenges they are facing, they continue to embrace their music with such passion. For that we’re very happy to have them in our event, and we hope to see more of them in future activities,” says Jane Duterte, PR and Marketing Manager of Primavera Residences.

Primavera Residences is a twin tower, ten-storey mixed used property located in uptown Cagayan de Oro City. It was recently awarded as the Best Mixed-Use Development in the Philippines by the Asia Pacific Property Awards. Units are available for sale or for rent.
