What Makes a One-Bedroom Condo a Worthy Investment

House and lot properties often come in hefty price tags, especially when you target prime locations within the major central business districts of Metro Manila. You may commonly find budget-friendly homes in neighboring provinces or in the peripheries of the metropolis. This is the reason why high-rise condominium living has been the practical and efficient choice among urban dwellers, as most condo developments are strategically located close to offices, schools, malls, and other essential establishments.


When homebuyers think of “condo living,” some of them imagine residing in a restricted living space where you are obliged to maximize every square meter and every inch of your condo unit. This thought might have been brought about by the advent of more and more studio-type units offered by many residential developers, as well as home makeover videos we can watch online where furniture and fixtures are being custom-built to suit small spaces.


Studio-type units with smaller space will definitely cost less, while a larger two-bedroom condo will surely have a higher price, unless you really need a wider living space for a bigger family. If you’re caught in such a dilemma, a one-bedroom suite might just be the right choice for you! We’re listing down the top reasons that make a one-bedroom condo worth investing:


Feels Like Home


Owning a one-bedroom condo unit is just like having your own house. Having a separate bedroom lets you freely move around and do more activities with the living space you have. It may deviate from a traditional house we imagine, one way or the other, but the comfort and convenience an ideal home provides can be experienced as well in a condo unit with your own bedroom.


Very Filipino


We, Pinoys, are renowned globally for our trademark hospitality. We love inviting our relatives and friends to come over to our homes, and entertain them with delicious food, limitless kwentuhan, and perhaps a playlist of videoke songs. A one-bedroom condo suite will provide you the privacy that you deserve, unlike in a studio unit that exposes everything including your sleeping area.


More things you can do


With the pandemic still lingering, remote work and online school will most likely persist as a long-term norm, requiring you to setup a conducive nook in an extra space. In a one-bedroom condo unit, there will surely be enough space to find a spot for your work-from-home setup or your children’s online schooling. Aside from that, you can possibly set up an entertainment area, a fitness or hobby space, a mini-garden for indoor plants, or anything else where you could express yourself without compromising comfort.


Easy to maintain


A studio might be easier to maintain because it has less space, but in reality, having an open-plan flat layout where everything is laid out before your eyes, somehow obliges you to put it in order all at once. A one-bedroom condo unit might have a bigger space for you to clean, but it is still manageable to maintain and you would also be able to compartmentalize the cleaning of your condo home.


Higher Investment Returns


When you invest more, you can gain more. While any condo property is a good investment, you are bound to reap higher ROI from a bigger condo unit that you will resell or rent out. If you intend to do condo rental business, let it be for short-term or long-term lease, you can command higher rates for a one-bedroom unit because of the separate room you have, plus, your living area can possibly be converted into another sleeping den.


Value over price


Some home seekers are reluctant to avail bigger condos because of the more expensive price tag that comes with it, but realizing all the value that you can enjoy, it will definitely be worth it. When you’re buying a condo property under pre-selling stage, it is best to decide now to avail a bigger unit, than regret after several years upon turnover of your condo unit why you just purchased a smaller one.


Buying during pre-selling will also give you more flexible payment options where you are not required to pay in full or give out a huge down payment right away. For instance, in the rising township along Felix Avenue in Pasig-Cainta, the 22-hectare Empire East Highland City, real estate innovator Empire East allows homebuyers to enjoy big promo discounts from 5% up to 15%, and payment terms with low monthly amortizations at zero interest.


Because of the community’s strategic location, sustainable features and world-class amenities, the inventory of Empire East Highland City is being taken up so fast. Towers 1 to 3 have been sold out, while the newly launched Tower 4 has remaining 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom suites. Under the on-going exclusive promo offered this holiday season, executive studios, which have already been sold out, can be availed starting at PHP 6,000 monthly. But just for an extra investment of an additional PHP 3,000, you can already upgrade to a more spacious 1-bedroom suite ranging from 28.50 up to 31.52 square meters. Just imagine all the add-on value you can enjoy for a little price difference.
