4 Reasons Why I Like This 4 Bedroom House in Xavier Estates

When I first started out as a real estate broker, I had no experience, very few connections and very little money. But I still went ahead because I felt like this was the career for me. It was exciting and fun. I had the freedom to work whenever I wanted to – which as it turned out was most of the time as I enjoy it so much I don’t even see it as work.

The challenge when you’re starting out is that you need to put in maximum effort. I was 24 when I started my real estate career and so my friends (who were mostly my age) didn’t have enough money yet to invest in real estate. Most of my relatives where in Iligan, so I had to look for CDO based clients. Sales is tough when you’re starting out. But when you hang in there, it will get easier. Now, I get quite a few referrals from old clients. People now PM me randomly on Facebook to inquire about real estate investments in CDO.  It becomes easier because as  time goes by, you build your credibility and reputation in your industry. You improve and slowly master your craft. What used to be such a struggle now becomes second nature.

This 2 storey house in Xavier Estates was referred to me by a client of mine. When I checked the house there were immediately 4 things that caught my attention. Here are 4 things I like about this house.

First, the open floor plan. When a house has too many partitions, it will make the space seem smaller than it actually is. An open floor plan, on the other hand, will make a house look large and spacious. The 3 main areas of the first floor of this house – the living room, dining area and kitchen – just seemed to flow into each other creating a spacious feel.

Second, the big lot area. The usual cut in Xavier Estates Phase 4 is 150 sqm. This house is a 250 sqm. Another added bonus is that it’s on the main road which is wider than inner roads.

Third, the front yard. Most houses in Xavier Estates take up the entire lot area leaving no space for expansion or for a front yard. What I like about this house is that the owner built on one side and left space in front of the house for a front yard. Now, what can you do with a front yard? Well you can always put a little garden in front or perhaps tables and chairs that you can use for weekend barbecues with the family.

Fourth, the competitive pricing. A house with specs like these usually go for 7.5M- 9M depending on the finish as well as the lot and floor area. So at 6.5M, this can be considered a good buy already. Remember that it has a lot area of 250 sqm and a floor area of 197 sqm. Plus 4 bedrooms and 2 toilet and baths.Plus it’s located in Xavier Estates, one of the best subdivisions in Cagayan de Oro.

5 Reasons Why It’s Important to get a Good Real Estate Broker

Real estate is a long term investment. That’s why it’s important to tread carefully when it comes to investing or selling real estate.

Here are 5 reasons why it’s important to get a good real estate broker:

Reason no. 1: A good real estate broker can advise you the current market prices.
Real property is not like food or a piece of clothing that you can give away if you don’t like it. It’s a big investment. If you’re planning to have it financed by the bank, it will take a lot of time. You can get a home loan for as long as 30 years with Pag-ibig. With the banks, their maximum term is 20 years. Since it’s a huge investment you’ll need to tread carefully. This is where a good broker comes in handy. A broker can advise on the current market trends in the area. Once you know what the usual sold prices are in the area, then you’ll know whether a particular property is a good buy or not.

For sellers, a good broker can advice you on setting the right price for your property. We don’t just list a property immediately, we help our sellers come up with the right price. If the price is too high, buyers wont even bother to inquire and the property will end up sitting on the market for years. The selling price has to be competitive for it to sell fast.

Reason no 2: Listings.
A good broker usually has a list of properties for sale in his or her area. Buyers usually shop around online haphazardly. A good broker can give you a list of properties in your desired location. You can then choose the properties you want to view.

Reason no 3: Ensure smooth closing
A good broker can and will ensure a smooth closing of the deal. Since a broker acts as the mediator between the buyer and seller – who sometimes can become emotional – he or she must stay professional and objective. Aside from staying objective, a good broker also prepares all the documents beforehand to ensure that everything goes well from negotiating to closing.

Reason no 4: Professional support
Believe it or not, buying or selling a property can be an emotional journey. And having a good broker by your side can help ensure that you make the right choices. I think of myself more of as a consultant. I help my clients by asking them what their needs are and then providing solutions to those needs. A good real estate broker will make serving your needs his/her first priority.

Reason no 5: Hassle free transaction
What a lot of real estate agents don’t realize is that closing a deal is really a very technical thing and it takes a lot of practice to get the skill of doing it right. With a good real estate broker, he or she can iron out the whole process so that you can just sit back, relax and you have a hassle-free transaction.

Yuli’s Truly Wealthy Story: Invested in Corner Lot in Pueblo De Oro

Everyday is your chance to make an impact in the lives of others.

As a real estate broker, I carry a huge responsibility in my hands. Since I’m dealing with millions of pesos (houses don’t come cheap) I have to be extremely careful. I met Sir Yuli through one of our partner agents in Truly Wealthy Realty. Although he’s based in the States he wanted to invest in a lot in Cagayan de Oro because he wanted to someday, build his dream home here. As we was only in Cagayan de Oro for a few weeks on vacation, he needed things to move quickly. After seeing a few of our listings, he decided on a corner lot in Pueblo de Oro. We walked him through the sales process, explained the taxes and that was when he decided to put in an offer for the lot. He reached an agreement with the sellers and the deal was closed.

Never knew Truly Wealthy Realty consumer review till I became their client. Ms. Alex is patient, knowledgeable, professional – and managed my expectations on the processes of buying a property. Happy with all the services I received, it was a great experience. So blessed to know you!

Rocheflume’s Real Estate Journey with Truly Wealthy Realty:Mentor & Friend turned Client

I believe that the first people you should focus on helping are those who are already within your network. I met Rocheflume Flores five years ago when I first joined Toastmasters. Through time we bonded over food and numerous cups of coffee in various coffee shops. I came to see Tita Roch, not only as a friend but as a mentor. As one of the top performers in Manulife she has achieved a lot of things that I still aspire for. She taught me a lot about marketing, sales and especially creating great relationships with people. She taught me not to focus on the sales but on the relationships. We are, after all, in the people business.

I also made my first investment in life insurance with Manulife through her help. I’ve never really believed in life insurance before. I’ve been investing in the stock market for many years now and I thought that was enough. But numerous conversations with Tita Roch about the benefits of investing in life insurance soon changed my mind. That, and reading Randell Tiongson’s book – Life and Personal Finance which Tita Roch gave me as a gift.

During our conversations Tita Roch mentioned to me that she wanted to invest in her first house. I assessed her needs and, based on what she wanted, showed her several houses. But since she was always traveling, she couldn’t make a decision immediately. It was after a few years when she finally decided to invest in a ready for occupancy house in Xavier Estate Phase 5, Ventura Residences. The journey we travelled wasn’t as smooth as I wanted it to be. We hit some bumps along the way but thankfully everything turned out well. In fact, I just turned over her unit to her last week. It’s now scheduled to be remodeled by her Architect Russell Legaspi. I can’t wait to see the finished product!

What I’ve learned in my five years as a real estate broker, is that it’s really about the relationship that you have with your clients that matters. You may hit some snags along the way, but when you continue to be there for your client and serve them the best way you can, you’ll be able to strengthen your relationship even more.

It’s not about what you get but what you give. It’s about the value that you impart to other people.

What about you?

As a salesperson, do you feel like you’re not making enough sales? Do you feel like you’re doing everything you can and yet your prospects don’t seem to be responding? Or perhaps you find it hard to even set meetings with potential clients?

Focus on adding value and the money will follow. If you want to make a career in real estate selling, then email or call us and we’ll help you get to where you want to be.
