Best Locations To Rent A Condo

Condominium buildings are among the most popular residential living spaces the past few years. Despite the smaller spaces, a growing number of people are now living in condo units and in fact, prefer them over residential house and lots.
In Metro Manila, where space is limited and expensive, condominiums are very popular. Despite the high prices associated with condominium buildings, renting a condo in Bonifacio Global city is still so much less expensive than renting a house in the high class communities surrounding the Bonifacio Global City.
Still, not all condominiums are well-placed and are located in suitable environments. Below are some of the best locations to rent a condo.

  • Makati. Despite the price of renting a condo in Makati, the convenience it will bring is priceless if your office is just a few buildings away from your condominium. You can save on transportation and time, and you can escape the usual stresses of commuting to work.

  • Ortigas. For those who work in Ortigas, there are numerous buildings that offer residential units. Since the Ortigas business district is relatively smaller compared to that of Makati, places of interest are also closer together and easier to get to.

  • Eastwood. A relatively younger area, the Eastwood condominium buildings are popular not just among those working in Eastwood but also those who work in Ortigas. Home to many of Eastwood’s call center industry, many of the units in these condominium buildings are for rent and many of them are rented by more than one individual. Also, the ambiance in Eastwood is more relaxed and laidback than the fast-paced lifestyle in Makati and Ortigas.

  • Manila. The condominiums in Manila are very popular among students. Many parents choose to rent a condo for their children going to college rather than send them to boarding houses or dormitories. 



After you decide where to buy your condo, it's also important to consider what you should know before owning a condo unit and what are the benefits that you can get in renting a condo.

Tips For Condominium Living




 With the declining spaces and areas for residential purpose in Metro Manila, it is not surprising that condominiums and apartments have extremely grown in popularity over these past years. A lot of people have chosen to live in condominium and apartment buildings instead of houses. With the growing demand for these types of residential units, there is also an increase in rental units such as condominiums in Makati for rent.

Whether you bought a condo unit or living in a condominium in Manila that is for rent, living in a tight and smaller space is not easy. Below are some tips to help you make the most out of living in a condominium.


  • Functional Furniture. With the smaller floor area of many condominium units, it is best to stay away from furniture items that are for decorative purposes only. Instead, go for furniture which serves at least two purposes such as a center table that has storage underneath or a sofa that can be rearranged into a bed. 

  •  De-clutter. Living in a condominium unit is not for a hoarder. When you are living in such a small space it is best to stay away from clutter by keeping only the essentials. Anything that will not get used in six months deserves to be given away, disposed of, or stored away permanently. 

  •  Open up space. Since most condo units come without divisions, it will be quite easy to keep an open layout. An open layout will give an illusion of bigger space instead of having walls that limit your field of vision. If having an open layout is not your preference, try to keep walls and divisions to a minimum. 

  • Make it light. When it comes to choosing colors for your condo unit, keep them light such as beige, white, cream, and the like. These colors can make things, including walls, more expansive.

  • Choose well. Your child will be faced with endless choices starting from the college or university that he or she will go to. Understand that this is your child’s choice. Feel free to offer your insights and opinion if your child consults you but know that your child will be the one to make the final decision. The best you can do is to gently point out the things that your child will have to consider before making his or her choice.
  • Research. Although the decisions should ultimately come from your child, help him make an informed one by researching with him. Learn as much as you can about the environment and culture associated with a particular university so that your child is ready to be immersed in it.

  • Communicate. Whether your child will still be living with your or staying in a dormitory or one of the condos in Manila, make sure to keep the communication lines open. There will be many changes in your child’s life and for some kids, college can be daunting and challenging. So it is important that your child knows that he or she can easily go to you for anything. Regularly check on your child on how he is doing and let him just talk about the things that he is going through.
  • Let go. College will be a huge adjustment for you and your child especially if he or she will be moving out of the house. But even if your child is living in one of the condos in Taft or anywhere else near the university he or she will go to, be confident that you raised him or her well and that he or she will be okay. If you’re the type of parent who keeps their child on a tight leash, this is the time for you to start letting go. Let go and then enjoy this new phase in your lives.

The jokes below are not mine, but my collection. These are the funniest joke from my list.

The talking clock

Suddenly, someone on the other side of the wall screamed, “Hey jerk! It’s 2 in the freaking morning!”

The frog prince!

I am a real estate broker who, through a curse, has been transformed into a frog. If one of you will kiss me, I’ll be returned to my former state!”
One woman took out her purse, grabbed the frog, and stuffed it inside her handbag. The other woman said, “Didn’t you hear him? If you kiss him, he’ll turn into a real estate broker!”
The second woman replied, “Sure, but these days a talking frog is worth more than a real estate broker!”




The Bible text conversation!
A real estate agent was knocking on doors of homes in his farm area. At one house it was clear that someone was at home, but his repeated knocks at the door went unanswered. So, he took out one of his business cards and scribbled “Revelation 3:20″ on the back of it, stuck it in the door, and went about his rounds.
When he got back to the office the next day, the receptionist gave him a business card. It was his own, and he recognized the “Revelation 3:20″ he wrote the day before. In a very neat handwriting, a cryptic message was added: “Genesis 3:10″.
Later, when checking the Bible verse, he couldn’t help but break into gales of laughter.
Revelation 3:20 begins: “Behold, I stand at the door and knock.”
Genesis 3:10 reads: “I heard your voice in the garden and I was afraid for I was naked.”


No respect yow!
A crusty old man walks into a real estate office and says to a young sales rep, “I want to sell my house you son of a b…..” A little astonished the agent replies, “I beg your pardon sir, I must have misunderstood you. What did you say?”
“Listen up, damn it. I said I want to sell my bloody house!” “I’m very sorry sir, but we don’t tolerate that kind of language in this office”, he says, calling the manager over.
The agency manager comes out: “What seems to be the problem here?” “There’s no damn problem,” the man says, “I want to sell my bloody riverfront mansion.” “I see,” says the manager, “and is this young bastard giving you a hard time?!”
