Getting one’s own space is one of the major investments young professionals have to make as they transition to independent adult life.
Knowing that having his own place will serve him well in the long run, young professional Kyle Arthur Ofrecio has made real estate investment his utmost priority.
At a young age, Kyle, who works as a project manager for an insurance firm, already invested in a studio unit in Cubao, Quezon City.
“It was offered to me at a bargain price at that time so I grabbed the opportunity,” he shared in an interview.
With his background in the insurance business, Kyle knew the importance of putting his money to good use and continue investing his earnings in real estate instead of making unnecessary purchases.
Thus, he did not think twice when he was enticed by a friend to buy a bigger condominium unit from the country’s first Quadruple A developer DMCI Homes whose resort-inspired developments he had always admired from afar.
Kyle, a bachelor, initially checked out Flair Towers, a DMCI Homes property in Mandaluyong City, after a friend referred him to a sales agent. Although he wanted to move in the area to cut travel time going to his work in Makati City, the property was already in its ready for occupancy (RFO) phase and the available units were beyond his budget.
But when told that another DMCI Homes development was being constructed in nearby Sheridan Street in Pasig City, Kyle did not hesitate to reserve a two-bedroom unit.
“From my place in Cubao, going to work is less than an hour if I leave at 6 a.m. Going home is a totally different story – one and a half hours to three hours. From here (Sheridan Towers), it only takes me 30 minutes at the most, even if the traffic is bad,” he shared.
