Wise spending helps millennial get dream DMCI Homes condo

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
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.
Ofrecio is one happy homeowner with the early turnover of his two-bedroom unit at DMCI Homes' Sheridan Towers.
While he already wanted to have a DMCI
condominium unit at that time, Kyle was convinced that Sheridan Towers was
worth waiting for.
"When I saw the model unit in Flair
Towers, I knew it will be worth the wait," the discerning millennial said of
DMCI Homes' two-tower development in Pasig City which is designed to offer
elegant resort-inspired lifestyle to urban professionals.
The wait, however, proved to be
short-lived as Sheridan Towers' South Tower was completed over a year ahead of
the November 2018 target turnover schedule, and Kyle even being the first
homeowner to move into his unit last September.
"I'm not yet financially ready, but I
realized having this quality and size of a condo unit is worth sacrificing
for," he related.
With his new place, Kyle is already
looking forward to living the ultimate "yuppie" lifestyle with Sheridan Towers'
resort-inspired amenities and the development's overall look and feel of a
Sheridan Towers has an audio-visual room
and game area where residents can watch movies, sing karaoke, or play billiards
and board games.
Unit owners can also choose to keep in
shape at the fitness gym or spend the day lounging at the swimming pool complex
"I love swimming, walking my dog, and
eating out," uttered Kyle who chose a unit overlooking the property's amenities.
He is also looking forward to a
close-knit community in his new home which has become the trademark of DMCI
"I'm expecting that we will have
activities where we will be able to get to know and mingle with our
neighbors," he said.
Apart from community-building
activities, DMCI Homes has been allotting at least 70 percent of the land area
of its developments to open spaces and amenities in its hope to promote social
interaction and a sense of community in its projects.
"DMCI Homes is really my standard
when it comes to condominium developments. The amenities, the design, the
lighting, the ventilation, and the community. Nothing comes close to DMCI
Homes," Kyle beamed.
Sheridan Towers is a
two-tower property development of DMCI Homes conveniently located in the
boundary of Mandaluyong and Pasig City.
