How the location of your home affects work-life balance

SHARE :

For many, the home is a safe and comforting place. No matter how stressed and tired you are from dealing with issues at work, home is where you can just lay your head and relax. When you think of home, you think of childhood nostalgia and beautiful memories made inside its four walls. You also plan and dream for the future inside the home.

A home is not just a building but a place where you spend a good portion of your life. So, choosing the right home for you and your family is an important decision.

Some things to consider if you are looking for comfortable living is the location; how close or far is it from your workplace and nearby schools for children, your relatives and close friends, restaurants, leisure or cultural facilities, hospitals, markets, and access to public transportation.

Buyers may also need to consider the safety and security of the neighborhood, the size and quality of the structure of the property, the green space available for children and the elderly, the cost of living in the area, and the value of the property. Taking these qualities into account will help individuals and starting families find a place that will suit their needs and lifestyle.

Residing within the business district may be ideal for some, but if you desire a balance between work and personal life, you may want to take into consideration living near the city instead of inside it. A location near the central district and your workplace, but far enough that there is abundant space and greenery for you and your family.

Ready to move in

For individuals and families looking for homes that provide accessibility, security, and comfort, a ready-for-occupancy (RFO) property is an ideal choice. RFO units are fully constructed and can be readily turned over to new owners. Since RFO units are already completed projects, discerning home buyers can visually inspect the quality, aesthetics, condition of the actual unit, and even see if the neighborhood and location fit their desired lifestyle. They can also check the condition of the building, the security, and the amenities that the development offer.

Most RFO properties also come with generous promos such as flexible payment terms and lease-to-own plans that homebuyers can take advantage of.

RFOs may also present advantages to investors. An RFO in a prime location offers opportunities for lease, and there is no need to count years before being able to utilize your investment. Moreover, RFOs resale value can be high, especially after some choice renovations on a unit can translate to a good value in the secondary market.
