Mid- and high-rise developments continue to sprout across the metro because there is also an increasing demand for condo living. Starting families, for one, find it more convenient and less time-consuming to move into a condominium unit than wait longer for the construction of a house. Millennials, on the other hand, think condos are the most ideal, especially because of the accessibility to majority of schools and central business districts. Even old couples consider retiring at a condominium development, as this lessens their worries and consequently grants them more time to appreciate the surroundings.

If you’re looking into owning a condo but haven’t fully convinced yourself that it’s worth the investment, below are the top reasons why living in one has its advantages.

1. Accessible location

The search for a new home always begins with the location. Is it close enough to the schools your children are attending? Is it within the vicinity of your workplace? Is it near commercial areas or malls? Is it strategically linked to main thoroughfares, and does it provide several transportation options?

Despite its underrated location, Avida Towers Astrea promises to provide its future residents with breathable spaces that welcome nature in an urban setting.

Avida Towers Astrea, a mid-rise condominium development in Quezon City, particularly in Fairview, answers yes to the aforementioned questions. Its location in the North is dominated by buses, public utility vans and jeepneys that make travelling to nearby cities and even provinces a breeze. Also within the area is the soon-to-rise MRT-7, which will have 14 stations from North EDSA (connected to MRT-3) to San Jose del Monte, Bulacan.

Aside from the business centers and commercial hubs, this condo is surrounded by educational institutions. The list includes Far Eastern University-NRMF, Our Lady of Fatima University, La Consolacion College-Deparo, National College of Business and Arts, and Metro Manila College.

2. Safe environment

A neighborhood you aren’t very familiar with may be a deal-breaker when purchasing a unit, but it might make you feel at ease knowing that property developers always put their clients’ safety as the top priority.

The three-tower development of Avida Towers Astrea, for instance, promotes a safe and secure environment in a location that marries the city and nature. Aside from the 24-hour security, it only has 12 residential floors in the first tower, resulting in low density and more breathing space for its residents. Homeowners will soon experience the Avida Towers Astrea lifestyle as its Tower 1 units are set for turnover by the 1st quarter of 2017.


3. Low maintenance

You have to admit that house repairs can be quite a hassle, especially with your busy schedule and pre-budgeted funds. Living in a condo takes away the stress of maintaining a big space. Yes, you would still have to pay fees, but these are already included in the association dues you shell out every month. Plus, you wouldn’t need to worry about repainting your house’s exteriors, hiring a gardener to check on your blooms, or constantly cleaning the backyard.

4. Sensible amenities

Another part of your monthly association dues go to the maintenance of shared amenities, which are one of the joys of living in a condo. Instead of having to find a larger lot that could accommodate an outdoor pool or wanting to spare another room for an in-house gym, why not opt for a condo unit that gives you access to various recreational facilities?

5. Greens and open spaces

Nothing beats finding an organized community that keeps you within the metropolis, but at the same time makes you feel disconnected from the city. Avida Towers Astrea promotes a suburban lifestyle, being located in the vicinity of the La Mesa Dam and Reservoir. Occupying a total of 27 kilometres, the protected area is also where the last remaining rainforest in Metro Manila can be found. More than standing within easy access to lush greens, this condo development boasts of sprawling interconnected gardens, which give you the same contentment as growing your own personal green patch.
