Millennial Filipinos, or Filipinos born between 1981 to 1996, are ticking one ‘adulting’ goal after the other. While some aspire to start a family, most young professionals are focused on their careers, preferring to slug it out in highly competitive workplaces and earn fat paychecks in the process. This often results in substantial savings that, in the past, they would splurge in travel and leisure pursuits, the latest gadgets, or even brand-new cars.
However, the corona virus pandemic has reportedly changed millennials’ spending patterns—for the better. With health protocols restricting their social lives and putting a damper on their travel plans, young adults—aged 20 to 30—are now investing their money in property. Real estate experts affirm this, crediting the positive trend to attractive payment terms offered by developers and the new flexible work arrangements.
Indeed, as Work From Home modes propel the pleasure-seeking generation towards home ownership, these young Filipinos would do well to check out BRIA Homes’ Astra Vertical Villages, the leading housing developer’s newly launched affordable condominiums.
Astra is commended as the ideal home for Filipino millennials because of its starter-pack price. Following its reliable formula, Mura (Affordability) + Dekalidad (Quality) = A Beautiful BRIA Home for Every Filipino, BRIA has made it possible for young professionals to purchase an Astra home for as low as Php 10,000 monthly amortization through flexible payment schemes.
These four-story mid-rise condo properties feature 24-square-meter units with bedroom, dining and kitchen area, living area, and toilet and bath. Turning their sleek and stylish units into their personal living spaces will be as easy as moving in.
For the peace of mind of millennials with busy career pursuits, Astra properties ensure all residents’ security and safety along with a competent property management that sees to their property-related concerns. Astra homeowners also relish such amenities that are unheard of in affordable high-rises: a communal clubhouse with function halls, swimming pools, play areas, and gym facilities.
Astra Vertical Villages are set to rise in three progressive cities: General Trias, Cavite; Calamba, Laguna; and Cagayan de Oro, Misamis Oriental. Astra will include provisions for a school, a wet and dry market and a food park.
Red Rosales, President of BRIA, is confident that the young generation of Filipinos has become more financially savvy than their elders. “The health crisis has truly made them wiser and more practical,” he says. “They now acknowledge that property is the safest investment because of its projected appreciation over the years.” And Astra Vertical Villages, he affirms, comes in as a very timely option for Generation Y Filipinos who have a flourishing career and a steady income.
Millennials and other interested home buyers can check out all BRIA properties by taking 360 virtual tours in BRIA’s website. They can also reserve a house online via BRIA’s online reservations, or inquire through the BRIA Facebook page.
