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.
I still think buying a home is the best investment any individual can make.
