The students just started this school year, and our ever-hard-working laborers are still working year-round, as usual. For many of us, travel going back and forth to our school and work is such a hassle. Imagine being stuck in traffic and you have a class at 8 in the morning, or have a meeting at 1 in the afternoon. You might have left your house three or four hours earlier, but it just won’t do. Unlike the people who are in a condo for rent in Makati, they don’t seem to have any problem if their school or workplace is just near their place.
To give you more of the mentioned above, here are some of the perks if you are residing near your school or work:
You are well-rested
It means no alarm four of five hours before you need to leave home. Thus you have extra time to sleep. You can do many things at home after school or work. You may be tired, but you still have a lot of time to do whatever you want or gain energy thru having a good rest. Isn’t it lovely?
Less time on the road
Given that the traffic in the Metro, well actually everywhere in the Philippines, brings out the worst in us, you will do anything just to get out of that trap. Having less time on the road is just pure nirvana we are all aiming for. Moreover, you are saving a lot of money and energy if you just live a few blocks away from school or work. You can walk for a few minutes or go bike, a workout that you can do in your daily life.
You can go back and forth to your place quickly
If you accidentally left something at home, you can get it and be back at your school or workplace in a jiffy. You can also spend long breaks at home, be at ease knowing that you can get no traffic. Hooray!
Feel free to invite friends and colleagues to come at your place
If you need to do projects or merely for bonding, you can have your friends and colleagues to come at home. It will be very easy for your group to go since it’s just around your area (school or office). It is also economical to hang out or spend your vacant in a house than renting a hotel, go out to eat at a fancy resto, etc. You can have your people swim (ask permission or sign them as guests) in your condo’s pool and cook scrumptious food at home. Having quality time with friends and at the same time being practical with your choices have never been this easy.
If there’s any emergency at home, you can easily storm your way
You get to your school or office around 10 to 15 minutes of walk, and if there’s an emergency, you could surely fly your way for like 5 minutes or less. Might be exaggerated but the fact the whenever someone needs your help or the like, you can quickly excuse yourself (and it’s reasonable).
More time for yourself and family
Given that you are just a few blocks away, you have less time on the road and more with your family, and to yourself of course. Work-life balance seems easier to do if you choose to live near your workplace or school, or vice versa.
Does it speak to you on a personal level? Well, it’s either a calling that you should consider moving somewhere near your current school or workplace or affirmation that your decision to live in a condo in Makati is an excellent choice. Whatever it is, I hope I was able to showcase the little perks you can have if you reside near your school or workplace.
It is just a natural thing to move out. Agree? People naturally want to live in a place where they can be proud of and live a healthy and satisfying lifestyle. Who would not want that? Well, it really doesn’t matter if you are planning to move into your new condo in New Manila or any other real estate properties in the Philippines, for as long as you can be contented with the things you have at home, then there is nothing to worry about. However, there are just times that there are some unexpected things we mostly encounter while moving in.
Many of us here believe the saying “expect the unexpected.” Yes, cliché as it may seem, but it may be true to some people who decide to move into their new home. They tend to expect something but turns out or ends up the opposite thing. Later on, you will eventually realize that you are learning something out from moving in a hard way. And yes, you are not the only one since there are also people who experience such things.
Well, if you are one of those people who is planning to move into their new home, below are some tips for you to know about moving in and what you should expect. Of course, this is also one way you can avoid troubles later on. And if problems may arise inevitably, at least, you know what you should do to prevent from experiencing such things again and again.
1. It always costs more than what you expect
When it comes to money matter, it is better for you to have some extra money in your bank to make sure that there will be no financial problems that may arise later on. Of course, there are times that there will be some add-ons that you forget to include on your payments, at least, you still have money that can pay for that particular thing. Not just with the down payments issues, there are also times that you need to have or buy some furniture for your home. And if you don’t have any money to buy such, then you definitely have to endure no having furniture at home. And you definitely don’t want that to happen, right? That is why it is a must for you to budget and have extra money for any case of financial emergencies.

2. It’s going to take you longer to clean and move the last bits than it did move all the rest of your stuff combined
When moving in, we usually tend to move first the big furniture at our new home. With that, a bunch of small things will most likely end up taking a lot of trips to get into the moving van. Of course, there will be tendencies that you’ll go to have the “tire-of-moving” feeling. To avoid such, why don’t you try packing things into boxes that go with certain rooms and areas so you can make getting it into a new home much easier? Moreover, you can also cut down that feeling by cleaning room by room the month or so before you move, so when it comes to moving day, you’re it will also be easier for you to move the things in each room.

3. Renter’s remorse is real and can sometimes ruin the first few days of a new place if you let it
There are just times that out from your impulsiveness when it comes to making life decisions, you regret what you chose. Yes, a lot of you here have experienced such situations that you regret moving into their new home. That means, you just realize it in the later part of your stay. Perhaps, you don’t like the people or neighbors around your since they usually do gossip around the corner. Or you just don’t like the place since the noise and other pollutions are definitely visible to the place where you live.
Hence, it is paramount for you to make sure you are choosing the right property before investing it. Well, if you can find one, you better think again and again if you like or if it’s worth the living or not. It is a must for you to know to make sure that you won’t regret any of your decisions later on.
