Expenses a Pinoy Millenial Can Forgo To Own a Flat



Can the ordinary Pinoy Millenial today truly afford his or her own place?

Are the twentysomething’s of today’s generation truly capable of having their own condo unit?

The truth is, most Pinoy millennials can already afford to have their own flats especially with the way some are earning today. But years and years of ingrained tradition wherein we usually stay with our parents until the day we get married before we move out has become a rather impeding factor for most Pinoy millennials in making a worthy investment. Unlike westerners, Pinoys have this unfortunate notion of that residential independence begins after marriage.

A rather startling thought considering that some of us are already financially independent, sound and capable. However, this is not the only major factor in preventing millennials from investing on having their own place. In fact, research has indicated that Pinoy millennials put more value on instant gratification rather than save their money for an investment that would outlast the temporary things they spend on.

However, if you truly want a place to call your own, you may have to curb your expenses on unnecessary stuff and invest in something with value and degree longevity. This might mean curbing the expenditures on a superfluity of unnecessary, extravagant items, but it will be worth your while. Here is how to start:


Millenials look forward to Friday nights as it allows them the opportunity to unwind and catch up with friends. More often than not, what goes on is either a dinner affair together, a movie then perhaps a round of drinks for a nightcap. All these can roughly cost you an estimated five hundred pesos at the very least.

So, instead of shelling out cash just to catch up, why not whip up a sumptuous dinner at home and invite your friends over? Ask your friends to bring over their favorite DVD’s for you to watch and since you are hosting dinner, why not ask them to bring a few drinks as well? Should your Fridays be spent like this, you will be saving a whole lot more than you initially imagined.


Most millennials contemplating on marriage would save months and months of their paychecks just to present their fiancées with a sparkly bauble. True enough, sparkly engagement rings may have persuasive value albeit expensive, are attractive and does increase in value over time but choosing to invest on a pretty rock rather than a livable space you can share with your spouse seems rather impractical.

Additionally, as you and your fiancée are about to start your life together, wouldn’t it make more sense if you thought of getting your own place as well?


In an era where everyone seems to be having smart everything from smart phones, smart tabs to smart TV’s, it seems everyone is making less than smart spending decisions. As millennials are constantly exposed to techy, fresh and trendy innovations in gadgets, more and more of them want to keep up with the trend. They needlessly buy new phones or tabs even when they have a still functioning one and simply brush this expenditure off as an “upgrade”, but the reality is, the developers of these techy gadgets release new models each year, prompting consumers to “upgrade and update”.

Consider this, if you add up the fortune you have spent in the last five years in updating your phones, tabs, gadgets, etc., you would approximately have enough to make a down-payment for a condominium unit. Still unconvinced? Then consider that these gadgets depreciate over time as they are constantly being replaced with a newer and fresher models while condo units or a real estate venture can only increase in value.


Try visiting your local flea market and you will discover hordes and hordes of branded items for a whole lot cheaper. What’s the catch? Well, they are all simply “pre-loved” which is basically semantics for used and secondhand.

However, if wearing used clothes is not your thing and makes you uncomfortable, wait for a big sale instead. In this way, you do not have to break your wallet just to buy brand new.


Long holidays are something most millennials look forward to as it provides ample time for them to pack their bags and go on an out of town trip. Other times, when millennials do need to unwind, they would not hesitate to book and schedule a trip out of town. These trips are not cheap and by refraining from scheduling a trip out of town every long weekend, you can save a fortune.

The expenses on this trip are rather big especially when accumulated at the end of the year. So, instead of booking vacations, why not reserve this for special occasions such as anniversaries and birthdays? If you do have the pressing need to unwind, have a staycation and search for places you can visit in your local area.


Owning your first flat and house requires a lot of effort, discipline, and finances on your part. This means making the necessary sacrifices on your part and forgoing instant gratifications for a delayed one. Delayed gratification is a great thing and though it might cause you to wait impatiently, consider just how rewarding it will be once you finally acquire your dream home. Start saving today and who knows? You might just have enough money to buy from a developer pre-selling condos.

However, people who have a clean home don’t do such. They see to it that their clothes will be in their proper places. If those particular clothes are already dirty, then they will immediately put the clothes in the laundry basket. And those clothes that are clean, they also see to it that it is properly folded and placed in their proper places.

2. They don’t keep unnecessary things

Your extra things that are not that important or useful to you is one of the common things that adds the mess at home. However, if you just know what are the things that you need to keep and things that need to get rid of, then you will achieve a clean home. If you think that that particular thing can be still of use but not useful to you anymore, then you might want to consider giving them away.

4. They don’t take their bed for granted

For some people, they don’t tend to care much about their room. For as long as their living room, kitchen and any other room where visitors can immediately notice are organized and clean, and then it is ok for them. Well, if you do, then you better change that kind of habit. Even if visitors won’t go to your room, it is still your responsibility to clean and organize your room. Why? Because it is where you tend to sleep and have a good rest. Of course, you cannot have a good rest when you have a dirty and messy room. It is going to be a no-no.

5. They wash their dishes right away

Stop! Don’t Sell Your Home! Be Thankful Instead!

Before you decide to sell your home, you better give it a second thought! Yes, some of you here might be tempted on converting a home into cash, but there are a lot of ways you can have an extra income without selling your home. Even if you are living in Park Point Residences or any other real estate property, you have all the rights to be happy with it. Of course, being happy doesn’t only mean through financially but also, you can be happy by being satisfied with the lifestyle and the place you are now living.

There might be some of you here don’t have any reasons to stay still in their home, however, here are six reasons why you should turn those restless feelings into reasons to be thankful for having your home.


Ok, let’s just admit! We hate it whenever someone reprimand us for being noisy, go home late or even do some crazy things. And if you have a landlord, you will certainly follow rules and regulations when it comes to the house rules. If you don’t follow simple rules, then you better be prepared to be kicked out to your house. However, if you own your home, you don’t have to worry about those things. You have the freedom of doing whatever you want at home.

Relaxing weekends at home

When you sell your house, you can’t freely have a relaxing weekend alone at your home. Sometimes, some landlords will come to your house without any prior notice, disturbing you from your good night sleep, or on your relaxing day. However, nobody will reprimand you for dressing like a beggar, sleeping for the whole day, or putting on your old and stained pajamas, if you just own your home.

Comfortable clutter

One of the reasons why you should not sell your home is that you don’t have to worry about the clutter in your home. If you want it the arrangement the way you wanted it to be, you can do it since it is our home and nobody is there to reprimand you for doing it the wrong way. Moreover, there is no landlord who is nosy enough when it comes to the things that you want to do in your home.

No interruptions

If you are a kind of person who doesn’t want to be interrupted by someone in so many ways, then you better not sell your home. There will be no landlord who will tell you to go and pay your monthly bill in the middle of you sleep or work, and there will be no roommates that are there willing to disturb you any time of the day. It is your home, your rules and your own time.

Selling sadness

Being sad when selling your home is one of the reasons why you should think again and again before you are going to decide to sell it. The memories that you have made inside your house, the sweat and effort that you gave just to achieve your desired outcome on your home or room, and other things that you are going to miss if you decide to sell your home. Of course, some of us here don’t want to feel lonely being far away from home.

Holiday cheer

When it comes to holidays, you don’t have to worry about hosting a party since you already can. There will be no landlord who will reprimand you for being noisy. You can invite friends and families to your house.
In sum, some of you here might have hundreds of reasons as to why they should sell their home. But always remember, there will always be sweet and warmth when you own your home.

Should You Go for a Remodel Home or a New Home?

If you think that all homeowners are happy about housing dilemmas, then you better think again! Especially for extended families, one of their dilemmas is whether or not they are going to have a bigger home through renovations, or renting or buying a new Avida home. Some of you here might wonder and ask if whether of the two are advisable to do. Well, you have to expect that there will be a lot of homeowners who will answer either way.

Of course, there will also be a lot of advantages you can have when you choose either of it. But there are just times that you need to choose one for you to move on to the next process. Well, if you are one of those homeowners who are struggling in making some decision on which of the two, then you might want to know some tips for making an informed decision.

Know what you are getting into

Sometimes, not planning ahead or making an impulsive decision can ruin the things you might want to have. When you decide something, it is your responsibility to know the things that must and must not do for you to achieve your desired outcome for your home.

You also have to remember that doing things without any careful planning is also not a wise thing for you to do. Of course, you have to know if that particular property is suitable for your family or not. Moreover, you have to know how to balance which of the two are more applicable on your end. And before you make the final decision, know first the basic things.

Check your finances

Your budget is one of the most important things for you to consider. Without enough budget, it is going to be hard on your part when it comes to the down payments – that if you are aiming to have a new home. However, if you are planning for some renovations instead, of course, money is also involved. You have to have a budget of the things you should use for you to do the renovations and all. Also, if you are aiming to invest in a new home, you have to make sure that you are free from other debts, check your credit cards if it’s still applicable for you.

Define your renovation requirements

When it comes to renovations, some of you here are planning to have a full home renovation. That means they will renovate their entire home. If you do, then you better think again first. Unless it’s your property, then it might be reasonable for you to renovate your entire home. But if not, you are just renting the lot or house, and then renovations might not be an ideal thing for you to do.

Investing in a new home might be applicable on your end. If you do, you don’t have to worry about any renovations. All you have to do is seek help from a real estate broker and do the things that need to accomplish; then you can already have your new home.

Don’t over-improve for the neighbourhood

If you are planning to go for renovations, you have to know what you are doing. For instance, if you plan to extend your kitchen or any other room for an extra square footage, how sure are you that your neighbourhood will approve to it? As a homeowner, you also have to be considerate with your neighbours. It is also one way you can get along with your them and live a healthy lifestyle.

Get ready for a different kind of stress if you move

Moving out can also be stressful. It is different from the other stressors that we have. Of course, there will be a lot of things for you to think about when you move. Thinking about where to put your things, or what kind of vehicle are you going to use to move your belongings and other big furniture.

Expect the expenses

Whether you choose to stay and renovate your home or buy/rent a new home, there will always be expenses that you need to have. Either way, there will always be monetarily involved. That is why, you have to prepare enough budget when you decide to do such.

Attitude Problem: How to Avoid a Horrible Roommate Legally

By nature, we humans are friendly. We smile and make friends with strangers. And there are even times that we treat and welcome them as our roommates. Of course, there are a lot of advantages when we have someone to share our home with. There will be fun and excitement every day. They can also be your life saviour when in times you need them.

However, there are just some roommates that are a total opposite from what you have expected them to be. They might be rude, no manners, horrible, discourteous, inconsiderate, insulting or even worse. You even think and wonder how come you have welcomed them and stay as your roommate? Well, for some reasons, you will eventually learn their true color on the later part of their stay. For some, having a roommate is a blessing. While other considered it as a nightmare!

Some of you here who have this kind of roommate might want to avoid or get rid of them. Well, it is now possible. In a legal way, of course. Here’s how:

Communication is the key

Communication is one of the very important factors that you should not miss to do. When communicating, it is a two-way process. For instance, you’re going to talk about a particular issue with your roommate, and he listens. Vice versa. Talking about the problem is one of the common solutions whenever a problem arises. Yes, you might feel awkward about it, but who cares? You both need to solve the problem immediately to avoid making it worse.

If you think that your roommate doesn’t have any plans to talk about the problem with you at all, then you might want to try initiating it first. You might not know, they are just shy to talk to your first. When you both communicate, you will understand what the problem really is and why it is a problem. Of course, if you both understand each other, there will be a harmony between the both of you.

Off-the-record roommates

There are just times that we sense something that is so off when it comes to our roommate. And later did we know that they are an off-the-record tenant (eg. an inhabitant who has not signed a lease of agreement). With this matter, communication might be useful, but make sure that you include the landlord when you talk about the issue. This matter already involves the landlord, since he/she is the one who will decide who gets in and goes out. Of course, you have the right to know how come they are living with you when he/she is not a legal tenant of the house. You are just concern with your safety.

Generally, when this happen and you want to get rid of your roommate, you have to make sure that there will be a written statement declaring that the roommate arrangement has ended should suffice. If not, then at least, provide your roommate with a deadline for leaving, at least 15-3o days from the date of the notice. Just make sure that the roommate actually receives the document and understands what he/she is reading.

Settle the problem in court

When talks are already not useful, then seeing them in court might help. Usually, courts are the least one wants to do since it is already a hassle on the part of the complainant, and of course, for your roommate. But if there is a need to settle things once and for all, the court is what you need. You just want to hope that your roommate will take the hint and gracefully exit to avoid inconvenience on both parties.

Usually, the court staff will give you a date and time for an eviction hearing, and you must be prepared for the legal documents that you need to present to them. With that, the court will likely grant the petition, and your roommate will have no choice but to leave.

Top 7 Interior Styling Mistakes You Need To Avoid

Some of you here might wonder, why is there such thing as mistakes when you got to do what you want when it comes to designing and/or decorating your home? Yes, the interior design of our home will be depending on the things we want to have and enjoy. However, there are just certain guidelines you need to follow in order for you to achieve your desired outcome.

However, there are just times that what we know is right, it is actually not right at all. And the worst thing is, we continue to make the same mistakes even if we know that it is not an appropriate thing to do. That is why, some of us here are not contented with their arrangements at home. If there is anything that is more frustrating to experience, I’ll tell you, it is when we see our crooked arrangements at home.

Although we sometimes feel guilty of these things, we have to remember that there are also certain mistakes in interior designs that we need to avoid. Below are the top 5 interior styling mistakes that we are guilty of, and we need to avoid these things next time.

1. Matching everything

Whether you like it or not, you have to try avoiding the use of all matching furniture sets, matching frames, and/or any other matching decals. If you want to have a stylish home, you also have to try variations of arrangements. Try to be creative. You will eventually realize that there are so many things you can pair with particular furniture. That is, of course, with a twist. It this is a creative way to mix and match furniture at home.

2. Spreading out a collection

If you are a kind of person who loves to collect, try not to display your collectibles in every room. The tendency when you do such, it will diminish the beauty of your collection. Instead, display it in one place to create more impact.

3. Everything with the same height

Try to observe things that are lined up with the same height, boring, isn’t it? If you want to have an interesting arrangement, why don’t you try varying the height of things grouped together? Well, you can also have it in a group of three’s and make sure that they are in different height.

4. Empty spaces

Having an empty space in your home is one of the common mistakes most homeowners make. We all know that there are just times that we have nothing to put in that particular space; that is why we leave it emptied. However, this is still a mistake that we need to avoid. Having an empty space at home looks like unfinished and uninviting – and not to mention, it’s boring. Well, you better think of a thing/furniture that would create an interesting arrangement on that empty space.

5. Over-accessorizing

Unlike filling up an empty space, you have to make sure that it will not look too crowded. The more things/furniture that you put in a particular space, it will also not nice to look at. Sometimes, it could be an annoying thing to have. Yes, there are also times that we want to overdo it, but don’t, control.

6. Fake greenery

This is definitely a no-no. We understand that sometimes, we just don’t have a garden where we can just pick some flowers, or we don’t have time to go to the flower shop to buy our favourite flower. However, this doesn’t mean that you are going to put fake greenery on your home. It degrades the thought of having and decorating plants.

7. Lack of meaning and personality

One of the reasons why we decorate is to have life in our home. Without it, our house may not be called as our home. We decorate because we wanted it to be the way we wanted it to be basing on the things we usually like. Well, if you are a kind of person who likes to collect antiques, then you may also have a vintage style of home. It will always be up to you. When there is a meaning behind it, then you will be motivated and be proud that you have such nice and amazing interior design.

6 Qualities of a Kid-Friendly Community

Before deciding where and what kind of property that you want to invest, one of the most important things for you to consider is its community – whether if it is a kid-friendly community or not. Well technically, this applies to homebuyers who have their kids living with them. Making sure that their kids can safely play around their home and with their neighbours is one of the most top priority homebuyers look into.

Considering the fact that there are a lot of real estate properties available in the Bonifacio Global City alone, it is undeniable that finding a place that is right and fit for our lifestyle can sometimes be difficult on our end. Of course, there will be a lot of careful thinking as to where and what kind of property are you going to choose, especially when it comes to the safety of your kids.

When choosing the right property, you have to make sure that these 6 qualities are included on your home standard. Some of you here might find this as “being picky”, however, these certain qualities can help you live a healthy lifestyle, without worrying about what’s going to happen next.

1. Tight security

Aside from the kind of property that you are going to choose and have, you should never forget about its security. You have to ask and make sure that that particular property has a highly tight security. From the security guard on your area – make sure that they roam around the community regularly to make sure there are no suspicious people that can enter any house, and to its security cameras that are installed in each street.

Sometimes, kids roam around the community on their own, and it is comforting to a parent that their kids are safe within the vicinity of the area.

2. Schools are nearby

At this young age, going to school is a must. And considering that they are vulnerable, having a long travel in going to their respective school is not a good idea for them. As a parent, you should consider having a nearby school for them to have more energy to make friends and study more. Moreover, this will also give you and assurance that your kid is safe since you can look after them any time of the day.

3. Amenities kids can safely use and enjoy

Most of the kids, if not all, won’t definitely mind where and what kind of property that they are living, for as long as they have a place where they can make fun and enjoy, then they will be okay with it. Of course, their mind is focused on the things that they can play with. And availing the amenities for your kids to use and enjoy such as the swimming pool and/or playground within the community, you are giving your kids the opportunity to enjoy and learn more. And that what makes a kid – to enjoy life.

4. Flood-free

Whether you agree with me or not, there are some areas and/or real estate properties that are prone to flood. And not knowing what kind of property is a flood-free community can endanger you kids. Of course, you cannot deny that flood water is dirty, and it can cause your kids some sickness. And as a parent, you don’t want that to happen, right? Moreover, even if a flood-free community may be expensive, you should also take the safety of your kids seriously. Never mind the price, for as long as your know that your kid is safe, then you should avail that kind of property.

5. Proximity to health care

Since most of the kids are vulnerable to sickness such as flu, colds, cough, one of the best choice of property is having a healthcare facilities near your community. With that, whenever you kids catch some flu and/or any other sickness, it will immediately be cured. Also, this is a convenient way to take good care of your kids, especially when he/she needs a regular check-up.

Responsible Pet Ownership: How Ready Are You to Have a Pet At Home

Ok, let’s admit! We just can’t resist the natural charm and cuteness of our pets, right? As we all know, there will always be an advantage when you own a pet. You can have your pet as one of your stress reliever; you can also have them as your guard at home and of course, as your friend. That is why, more and more people like to have their own pet at home. And the good news is that it doesn’t matter if you live in a condominium since there are already condos that are already pet-friendly. So, you can definitely have one at your condo unit.

Yes, there are a lot of advantages when you own one. However, owning a pet can also be demanding and daunting. If you are planning to have one at home, then you should know that there will be responsibilities that you need to consider. And knowing how to take good care of your pet is just one of the things that you need to do to be a responsible pet owner.

Moreover, owning is a pet is a privilege since not all of us here is capable of having one. Well, before you decide to have your own pet, you need to determine whether you are ready or not. Below are some of the signs on how ready are you to have your own pet at home.

Picking the wrong pet

Deciding to own a pet without thinking whether it fits on the lifestyle that you have is definitely a big no. When you pick a pet that is high in maintenance and you are not staying always in your home, then there will be a big problem in taking care of your pet. Also, I’m sure you don’t want to have a pet that usually destroys your things at home, right? Before you decide, you have to be sure what kind of breed that will also fit your lifestyle.

Not offering enough exercise and activity

If you are planning to have your own pet at home, and you are a busy person, then finding time to make your pet exercise and do some activities might be hard on your end. The tendency when your pet doesn’t have enough exercise is that he/she might easily get sick. And having a sick pet can also be a hassle on your part, especially when you have so many things to attend to. Well, if you really like to have one, you have to make sure to find some time to let your dog walk around the ground.

Avoiding the veterinarian

One of the condo rules, when you decide to have your pet at your condo unit, is that you have to make sure that your pet is safe and healthy. And avoiding the veterinarian, since perhaps, you still don’t have enough budget for it, then you are taking your pet for granted. Well, owning a pet can also be a high maintenance after all.

Feeding improperly

One of the important things for you to know is how and what kind of food that is advisable for your pet. Feeding them with the right food is the most basic thing that you need to know. Feeding them the wrong food might get them into obesity or being malnourish. And I’m sure you definitely don’t want that to happen to your pets, right? Before you buy their food, you have to check the labels and read the review, whether it is also best for your pet or not.

Failing to budget for dog expenses

If you think that you don’t have enough budget for your pet, then this is still not the time for you to own one. Again, owning a pet can also be a high maintenance, you have to make sure that you have enough budget for their food and for their health.

Letting behaviour problems get out of control

This is definitely a no-no on condo rules. Knowing how to discipline your pets is a must for you to know. If you don’t care about it at all, then you will face a bigger problem later on. And of course, you are not fit to have your own condo pet.
