So, should you be considering a move to San Juan, here’s a handy guide to help you find the right condo.
With these three tips, you get to discover the best condo to rent in San Juan, and we’re hoping that you get to enjoy your stay in the heart of Metro Manila:
Anchor Land understands that finding the right condo in the Philippines can be challenging, especially when there are about 152,000 condo units in Metro Manila. So, to make it easier for you to decide, narrow down your options by setting a price point that you are willing to work with; list down at least three to five residential condos in San Juan, then compare and contrast each unit’s respective offerings accordingly.
You’ll have to understand that not all condominiums are built equally, which means that higher prices will usually come with more benefits that highlight size, location, amenities, or modern comforts and conveniences.
Apart from the condo’s price, you’ll also have to consider the cost of living in San Juan, whether you’re renting or buying a condo. Break down your daily living expenses to come up with a monthly budget, which should include the essentials, such as:
And lastly, when considering your budget, make sure that you’re getting your ideal condo unit, because if you would rather be somewhere else, then how will you ever enjoy your San Juan condominium?
If the little things like a secure parking lot, an abundance of green spaces, or a freshly renovated unit make it all worth it, then don’t hesitate to ask about these benefits. Diplomacy goes a long way, so be open-minded and flexible, but never compromise on your needs.
As mentioned, choosing to reside in a San Juan condominium makes it easier to access key locations in the metro, but how closer will you be to the important places in your life? San Juan offers proximity to schools, churches, hospitals, parks, markets, and malls in the metro.
So, if you’re going to be closer to where you work, any establishment you frequent, or where your kids go to school, then make no mistake – all the time you get to save from the daily commute can greatly impact the quality of your life.
Ask yourself, “Does it make transportation easier?” As the centermost city in NCR, a condo in San Juan can serve as a convenient address, as its prime location enables you to easily funnel from city to city.
San Juan also offers a wide range of commercial hubs for all your needs, from food choices to shopping hotspots, such as:
Should you need anything in San Juan, you won’t have to look too far, but be sure to consider key locations in your life when deciding on a condo.
Next to pricing and location, you’ll want to ultimately choose a San Juan condo that suits your lifestyle, and to make the decision-making process easier, here are some tips to take note of:
Before proceeding with renting (or even purchasing) a condo, always read the contract carefully before affixing your signature, and if you ever feel unsure, take as much time to clarify anything unclear with your landlord. From building rules and policies to payment schedules and other terms, such as housekeeping, utilities, bills, security, it will only be to your benefit to read and fully understand the contract’s specifics.
And if there’s anything left out that bears significance, don’t hesitate to try and negotiate these terms with your landlord. After all, each and every tenant will have their own sets of non-negotiables, which can be pertinent to their lifestyle, such as pet ownership, a balcony unit, or a sunset view.
Living in a condo means sharing spaces with a community, so it will be to your benefit as a condo unit resident or owner to live peacefully with your building admin and fellow residents – most especially, your neighbors. By all means, you don’t have to be the best of friends or regular dinner guests, but saying hello when in the elevator, greeting them a good morning every now and then, and simply being considerate can go a long way.
Lastly, a condominium’s unique offerings can also be the deciding factor when choosing to rent in San Juan, and depending on your lifestyle, finding the condo with the amenities that fit your needs and wants can be a boon. Maximize a condo’s gym, swimming pool, game room, lounge, or spa to enjoy condo living.
This also empowers you to live a comfortable life in San Juan, whether your condo serves as a transitory or permanent residence. That said, there are condo units that come fully furnished, but you can also choose to rent one that’s completely bare, which then allows you to design and decorate the space to “make it your own.” Either way, the choice is yours!
