House Update #01: Our Very Own HOME!

It's been months since i started searching for a house via internet, I give myself around 1-2 hrs a day to search (during lunch break or before going home/while waiting for hubby, minsan sinasabay ko na rin sa pag check mail pagdating ko ng office. hehe) I do some inquiry, requests for sample computation and kung pasok sa specs nmin we request for tripping.

Marvela: House model (this is how our home will look like)

Last March 15 we had another round of tripping. Met the broker at Festival Mall at 10AM then we headed sa Daang Hari to see the model units at Camella Homes Cerritos. We instantly fell in love with the model units and with the community. It's really nice! Dahil nagustuhan nmin we decided to see the actual site sa may Taguig (Diversion Road), lapit sa Petron C-5 and Market! Market! As per hubby's assesment ok naman daw sa kanya ang location, hindi kalayuan and malapit sa mga commercial areas. It's just a few minutes away sa Ortigas via C-5, Makati and airport.

After two weeks, we finally decided to invest. We made our reservation last Mar 31. 10% DP will be paid in 12 mos at 0% interest, less reservation fee. We opted for the 10 year term payment scheme via bank housing loan thru RCBC which will start after the DP.
Archi friends any advise? Ano dapat nming bantayan during the house construction? Btw, this is Camella Homes pla. Heard any reviews/feedbacks on this?
This April start na ung development ng site and expected turn over is by 2Q or 3Q of 2009. Sana 2009 na! Para makalipat na kmi . . . we are so excited to furnish our house, fill it with love and turn it into a home :-)

Congrats on making your first huge investment. Make sure you keep an eye on construction and your expectations are met. They usually make the model homes with upgrades that don't come with the standard ones they build so you end up feeling shortchanged when they turn over your actual unit to you. Make sure you clarify which ones will come with your house. There will also be lots of other expenses after the turn over --- taxes, land transfers, new furniture, etc. Start saving for those, too. Good luck!
