Owning a condominium unit has a lot of benefits. For starters, a condo is less expensive to buy and maintain than a house. In the Philippines, Makati, Taguig, Quezon City, Alabang, Manila, San Juan, Pasig, Mandaluyong, and Parañaque are ideal places to look for condominium units. Since they are real estate properties, their values also tend to appreciate over time.
Aside from being a good investment, a condominium is a great place to meet and socialize. Condominium communities usually promote fun activities for the residents. For example, if you have pets and are fond of animals, you can participate in activities that are related to animal awareness. You can enter your pets in a dog or cat show. You can also join a pet club, among other clubs encouraged by the homeowner’s association.
Most condominiums also offer luxurious amenities such as gyms, saunas, pools, spas, game rooms, and even golf courses. Using these amenities allow you to meet and have a chat with your neighbors. You will be able to work out in a gym and befriend a neighbor at the same time. It is nice to form a bond with the people who live around you.
If you like the outdoors, you can also walk, run, jog, or bike. The Eight Forbes Town Road in Fort Bonifacio Global City, for instance, features amenities such as bicycle tracks, and jogging and walking therapeutic paths. Exercising outdoors is better for your health than exercising in an air-conditioned gym since it lets you breathe fresh air.
If you are feeling pressured with the hustle and bustle of city living, you can relax in the spa, landscaped grand garden, meditation garden, or stargazing garden. You can also party and socialize with the other condominium unit owners at the outdoor party area or swimming pool. If you want to have some quiet and alone time, you can stay in the reading nook or library. If you have children, you can let them play with other children at the kids’ play area, kiddie pool, daycare center, and playroom.
Many condominium communities also hold events such as art exhibits, wine tasting, bowling tournaments, and golf tournaments. Through these events, you can have fun, show your skills, and meet new friends. You can also develop camaraderie with your neighbors. Moreover, you can join an aerobics group, yoga class, Pilates class, or Zumba class. Exercising with other people can encourage you to get fitter. It also allows you to meet neighbors who have the same fitness goals as you.
Living in a condo is also an opportunity to join exclusive clubs that will give you access to a wide range of amenities, such as sports and recreational centers and fine dining. You can have the opportunity to try out great food and engage in fun physical activities without having to go out of your way to look for a good restaurant or fitness center in Metro Manila.
