Banking on 35-year track record

Filipino homebuyers will always be willing to part with their hard-earned money provided that their investment is not only safe and worthy, but would promise high rates of return as well. In the case of buying a new house, it should not only be beautiful and of high quality but also located in a safe neighborhood and in easily accessible locations.

“A huge percentage of our buyers have been drawn to our projects’ locations. They want the best place and be secured of the fact that their investment will stand the test of time. They viewed our projects as solid investments since they have the potential for property appreciation or provide their families a much better shelter,” said Delie Chua, first vice president for sales and marketing of Stateland Inc. Currently enjoying remarkable market interest are the firm’s latest projects—Crystal Place and Villa San Lorenzo in Imus, Cavite; Gran Seville in Cabuyao, Laguna; Gran Avila and Casa Laguerta in Calamba, Laguna; Chester’s Place and Washington Place in Dasmariñas in Cavite.

Chua related that with the company’s 37-year track record in the real estate industry, Stateland (www.facebook.com/StatelandInc) has created unparalleled housing and community projects in key areas of Luzon.

“Since 1978, we have built more than 30 horizontal developments in Metro Manila, Cavite and Laguna so our buyers could trust us that we are experienced enough to create projects that last and desired by our target market,” she said.

Durable houses

Moreover, Chua said that since the company has a name to uphold, they made sure they only create durable houses within communities that their residents would feel proud of.

 

“Even from our inception, we already aimed at becoming a first-rate developer of residential communities. This is why we cannot compromise where we will set up the project, the quality of the materials that we will use, or the way we construct our houses, as well as the type of masterplanning that we will conceive,” said Chua.

According to her, each project is unique as Stateland tries to employ various home designs—from contemporary and Mediterranean to Spanish and modern inspired. “These houses are built with careful attention to details so as to assure the safety and satisfaction of our future residents,” Chua said.

Strategic location

Chua also related that considering their target market, Stateland ensured that each project is strategically located near major highways that could connect to several important destinations.

“Stateland Inc. believes that Filipino families deserve worthwhile living in their own land. With the perfect ambiance, tranquil environment, suitable location and affordable prices of every project, one can easily say that finally, they’re home,” Chua said.

She added that with regard to Gran Avila and its neighboring subdivision, the Casa Laguerta that have just been inaugurated, the company has initiated a project orientation for its in-house sellers and company brokers. “The orientation was held to give our in-house sellers a brief yet sufficient background on the features and quality of houses of these two newly introduced developments.”

New subdivision in Calamba

With affordable housing in mind, developer Stateland Inc. launched its newest economic housing project in the South.

Introduced to the media on March 1 was Gran Avila, its new master-planned, mid-cost housing development in Barangay Majada, Calamba, Laguna.

Stateland officials led by president Reynaldo Cometa attended the launch of the 16.25-hectare subdivision. Pag-Ibig Fund chief operating officer Darlene Marie Berberabe and Calamba City Mayor Timmy Chipeco graced the event, showing their support for the project.

Gran Avila units are affordable. Prices will range from P650,000 to P1.25 million. Divided into five phases with a total of 1,222 residential units, the subdivision will have houses varying from single-story to two-story single-attached houses and from one-story row houses to townhouses. Amenities include a clubhouse, a playground and a multipurpose hall.

The house models offer various modern designs with flexibility and functionality and is built with careful attention to detail to assure the integrity of each structure, according to the project’s information sheet.

Accessibility will not much be of an issue, as the Gran Avila is near schools, hospitals, churches and major malls. Jeepneys and tricycles are just a block away from the development.

 

What Gran Avila offers

For  Regan Uy, Stateland  first assistant vice president for marketing, since shelter is a basic need of man, “it is important to have a house of our own.”  Uy offered tips on what to look out for when checking out a residential unit. He pointed out the following come-ons that make Gran Avila stand out:

• Location. “It should be easily reachable via public transportation and near schools, government buildings and malls,” he said. Emphasizing on the Filipino’s love for shopping, he added that properties are more salable when near a mall.

• The neighborhood. “Consider the neighbors,” Uy said. “Pinoys consider only the price. But we in Stateland also want to make a very great community [for them to live in].” He said Stateland makes it a point to check on the community and the people living in it whenever it develops an area.

• Structural stability. “Our houses are durable and can stand against any condition,” Uy said. According to him,  Stateland’s 15-year structural stability warranty is not available among its competitors.

He added that in the country, structural stability is important, especially because of Filipinos’ attachment to their homes. “Kultura ng mga Filipino na ipinapamana sa mga anak natin ang mga bahay natin. (The culture of us Pinoys is that we give our homes to our children as inheritance.)”

Future plans

Stateland’s newest subdivision is already attracting a lot of prospective homeowners, Uy said, especially since a lot of these homeowners are reserving early for the units. “We had around 190 reservations, 30-40 percent of all the units in the Gran Avila.”

Uy added that most of the prospective buyers are OFWs. “They have the purchasing power, better than the locally employed ones, and they are able to save more [money] faster.”

This had challenged Gran Avila to deliver the goods, Uy added. “We are working faster and harder to finish all the units.”

On the other hand, Stateland—which has projects in Cavite, where it dominates the mid-cost housing market, and Laguna—said the Gran Avila is committed to keeping up with its adherence to quality, meticulous workmanship and compliance with industry standards in land development, and is planning to expand its projects in the area.

Delie Chua, Stateland senior vice president for sales and marketing, said: “We will be able to provide another well-built and well-developed community in the Laguna area. We are privileged to serve our hardworking countrymen with the houses they deserve for very affordable prices.”

Stateland bares newest enclave in Calamba

Calamba, Laguna – PROPERTY developer Stateland, Inc. once again ventured in economic housing project through its latest development, the Gran Avila. The 16.25 hectares of prime land was publicly launched last March 1 and was graced by Mayor Justin Marc SB. Chipeco and Pag-IBIG Fund President and CEO Atty. Darlene Berberabe.

 

“We build houses that people deserve, this has always been our mantra, and Gran Avila is another product of that legacy”, Stateland, Inc. President Reynaldo T. Cometa conveyed before the distinguished guests, business partners, company officers and clients. He added that the houses developed by the company are made of fine quality construction materials. The houses they build can vary depending on the client’s preference, need and style. In Gran Avila, clients can choose from basic to complete house options from the four house model units. Mayor Chipeco also cited the housing project as a realization of every Filipinos’ dream to have a liveable community. He also mentioned that Calamba is the perfect place for the community development because of its geographical advantages and also of its naturally-friendly people.

 

Gran Avila is strategically located amid the greeneries of the South and the sprawling commercial establishments in the area. Initially developed and introduced last 2013, Gran Avila is an economic housing project of Stateland, Inc. that seeks to provide quality and affordable homes to the Filipino people. Its affordable cost, modern architectural design, landscaped areas and enviable location make it a suitable community for every families.

 

 

 

Gran Avila provides its future home owners flexible home options. Alto is 60 sq. m. two-storey single attached house with provisions for three bedrooms, one toilet and bath, dining and kitchen area and carport provision. Solo is a 36 sq. m. one-storey single attached house with provisions for two bedrooms, one toilet and bath, dining and kitchen area and carport provision. Gran Avila also offers combined units for its row house and town house units. Stanza model, a two-storey town house with 43 square meter of floor area and provision for two bedrooms, one toilet and bath, dining and kitchen area and carport provision, can be combined with another Stanza unit, depending on the client’s need and preference. This goes the same for the Legato model, a one-storey row house with 25 sq. m. floor area and provision for one bedroom, one toilet and bath, dining and kitchen area and carport provision. Generous landscaped main open spaces, landscaped children’s playground with play equipment and multi-purpose hall for different gatherings will also provide its future residents a place for  leisure and recreations. Basic units can also be altered by putting add-ons to them. For an instance, the basic turnover finish of Solo model has a plain cement finish for its ground floor. If a client opts to put an add-on to it, the plain cement finish will change into a vinyl tile finish. Aside from this, there are other house options a client can choose from. Economically aside, Gran Avila also provide its future residents a refreshing vibe of countryside living. Located in the center of business and commercial establishments in the city, Gran Avila never loses the rustic vibe of the South as one can easily overlook Mount Makiling from afar, the trees that provides shades and cold breeze and the green pastures that serves as the shelter for different farm animals. One can easily enjoy the best of both rustic and modern living, in the most economical prices.  As an economic housing project, prices for each houses are pegged from PHP 600,000.00 to PHP 1.250 million. Despite its low prices in the market, Stateland ensures the quality of its products as it strictly adheres to the standards of the Structural and Building Code of the Philippines.

 

The Gran Avila Grand Launching was well attended by the local government officials of Calamba City, officers and officials of the Pag-IBIG Home Development Fund, bank partners, company officials, business partners, and clients, among others. The launching beacons new beginning for the economic housing ventures as the property developer continuously innovates the standards of BP 220 developments.

 

Cometa assured the guests that months from now, houses will be visible and architectural plans and designs for the newest community will finally be materialized, thus the realization of a sustainable and eco-friendly community for the benefit of everyone.

Making Valentines Day a Special Family Day

Make your partner feel loved and special by surprising her on Valentine’s Day. Seize this day!

A simple family outing during Valentine’s Day will is a great way to bond with each other and show love for one another

 

It’s the time of the year again where streets are flocked with flower vendors, stores and shops are filled with people looking for gifts for their significant others, and everyone else keeps exchanging I love you. What date is it again? Oh yes, right. It’s Valentine’s Day– the day of hearts. The day of expressively showing your love and affection to someone whom you look forward of seeing every day. Simply put, Valentine’s Day has been tagged as a day for lovers, and everyone who is and has been in love.

 

            Though Valentine’s Day is really for lovers and lovers alike, the celebration is not limited to them alone. Valentine’s Day is all about love, but not just for intimate lovers. Love is the center of the universe, as they say. It makes the world go round; it adds color to everybody’s life. Therefore, Valentine’s Day is best celebrated with the people whom you truly love and care—your family, friends, colleagues and special someone. It will be more special and meaningful if you can spread love and happiness, not just to your significant other, but to others as well. A simple gesture of love like cooking something special for the whole family and giving non-expensive but sincere gifts to your family is already a manifestation of love. To most people, giving chocolates, flowers and stuffed toys are already their declaration of love. But little did they know that there are still some other things that you can try to express your love to someone. Whether you are married, in a relationship, single or in any other relationship status, you can always express your feelings through varied and unique ways. Most people would treat their family or significant others to some places where they can bond and enjoy. They buy them gifts that would signify their love for each other. They would have dinner and have a romantic moment in a restaurant or in a yacht (where they would rent some space and have both of you or your family serenaded by a group of singers). Dining in an expensive restaurant seems like a very generous thing to do to your boyfriend/girlfriend or to your husband or wife. But no matter how romantic a candle light dinner in a first class restaurant may look like, nothing can beat a cozy and simple Valentines celebration with your family. Where else will you celebrate it, but in the comforts of your home.

            There’s nothing wrong in veering away from the traditional red roses and chocolates and romantic dinners during the Valentine’s season. After all, it’s a tried and tested thing. However, coming up with more unique ideas to celebrate this occasion are always a good thing. Instead also of just celebrating it with just the two of you, why not involve the kids in coming up with activities that would make them realize the importance of Valentine’s Day, and at the same time, bring out the creativity in them. Valentine’s Day is a perfect opportunity not just to teach your kids the meaning and value of love within your own family, but also to teach them how to show kindness towards others. To make Valentine’s Day a more ‘family-ish’ occasion, here are some activities that you and your whole family ought to love.

 

1. Eat, Pray, Love…. literally

            – Yes, you got it right. It is the title of the best-selling book by Elizabeth Gilbert. It is the author’s memoir of her travels and experiences in search for herself after her divorce. It was also adapted into a movie last 2010 starring Julia Roberts. So much about the film, but really, your family can eat, pray and love, literally. You can show your kids your culinary expertise and make the greatest dish ever. You can experiment on various ingredients and come up with a dish that would not only satisfy your tummies, but will also make an impact on your heart (how cheesy!). But on a more serious note, bonding in the kitchen is a great way of knowing each other– you, your partner and your kids. They say that happy and contented hearts make the best food, so go ahead, have some little family time on your kitchen and delight each other with your specialty. Of course, we should thank Him for His grace, mercy and love. We should always say our prayers to Him and thank Him for a great night, and for a great life. Of course, the reason why there is Valentine’s Day is to emphasize that indeed, people are capable of loving someone and be loved. Spread those cheese and sauce on your meal, but also never forget to spread love.

2. Sine banig with the family

            – Filipinos really love to watch movies, specifically those with a theme of romance and comedy. They go to movie houses and enjoy the rest of the film with their special someone, friends or family. But instead of splurging your money for a movie ticket for five, why not pull your banig (Filipinos’ version of sleeping foam, only without its soft features) under your bed, prepare the DVD player and a pile of CD of your favorite movies and make some popcorn or hotdog? Presto! You now have a home theater of your own! It’s a family’s movie date night so make sure to watch movies that will not only entertain you, but will also teach some good manners and values to your kids. It’s a great way of bonding with your family on a Valentine’s Day, without having to spend too much.

3. Share your love

            – Too cliché as it may sound, but yes, we have to share love. Together with our family, we can always gather around and go to the nearest community shelter where we can do some feeding programs, outreach programs, or simply book reading to some kids. Our donations may not always be in a monetary form, but we surely showed our love and care to the people who have been affected by some major natural and man-made disasters in the country. Doing so creates a win-win effect: You made them happy and special, even just for a short period of time, and they made you realize that indeed, life is great, and we have to treasure whatever we have before it’s too late.

4. My Valentine Monito

            -Ah, yes. It’s like the counterpart of the Christmas monito monita wherein the name that we will be picking will be our monito or monita and he/she will have that special gift from ours. How exciting! We know the drill of course; we pick a name, hide it from anyone else and give a gift according to the theme of the day. But since it’s Valentine’s Day, the gift should be something related in showing love. It’s your choice after all, but never forget to make your Monita/Monito smile when he/she receives that gift from you 🙂

5. Tree of love

            – Put some Valentines spirit on your home. Decorate it with hearts and cupids and hang it on your walls and doors. Redecorate your rooms with a splash of Valentine colors (red or pink) in your bed sheets, curtains, coffee table covers and even the paint on your wall, and put on some fresh flowers on the vase for a more aromatic ambience. If you’re feeling creative and childish at the same time, have some heart and cupid cut-outs on red construction paper and have it decorated on your walls or doors, or anywhere that can be seen. You can also put a variation of Christmas tree, the so called Love Tree. Instead of Christmas balls and garlands, have this tree decorated with hearts, hearts and more hearts, and sprinkle it with glitters and put some family photos and finish it with pink lights for a more arriving look. Put your gifts under this tree and make sure to celebrate Valentine’s Day in the most memorable way.

            No matter what gimmicks you have in mind for this special occasion, just make sure that we are celebrating it because of love. It doesn’t matter whether we are with our family, friends or special someone, for as long as we are happy and we are loved, our Valentine’s Day will be as great as having a person holding our hand.
