Camella goes the extra mile to build quality homes for Filipinos

For many Filipinos, finding their own home has always topped their priorities in life. Many seek for safe havens where they can live comfortably without breaking the bank. These days, however, a comfortable life costs too much that not every hardworking Filipino can afford. This is why Camella has built quality and secure communities all over the country to provide a decent life for hardworking individuals and their families.

The deep sense of a Filipino neighborhood culture sums up the down-to-earth nature of Camella communities. Borne out of its vision of building every Filipino’s dream wherever they choose to live, Camella has constructed over 500,000 homes in key cities and provinces nationwide for 45 years. This vision has resulted in ideal homes finely built and designed, self-contained and secure properties, and a network of systems, facilities and organizations that make for a stronger foundation of every home.

Camella offers a wide range of payment options that allow homebuyers to purchase their dream homes. Customized financing schemes also help them realize their first home investment in a safe and beautiful community.

Camella provides convenient locations where families can have access to schools, medical centers, places of worship, marketplaces, shopping malls, transportation hubs, and places of work. There are Camella communities with schools, churches and commercial centers right within the property —allowing them to be nearly self-contained.

Camella features amenities for families to spend quality time together : swimming pools, basketball courts, playgrounds, landscaped parks, and tree-lined avenues that often revolve around a Clubhouse. To make it a safer place to live in, the communities are well-secured with guarded gates, roving guards and perimeter walls.

Landscaped communities

            Camella boasts of green surroundings by collaborating with a team of horticulturists — to create living communities that grow into habitats ideal for families. The group designs the landscaping and open spaces that allow residents to come home to an oasis of lush greenery.

Good business practice

            Camella has tied up with top companies that help guarantee its communities are well taken care of. To ensure the group’s competence in project management and safety-conscience building practices, Camella works hand-in-hand with MGS Corporation, which provides construction expertise to customers throughout the country.

Camella likewise works with Global Land Property Management, Inc., a group with extensive experience in managing subdivisions and condominiums. They ensure that  necessary preventive and corrective maintenance programs are implemented.

Quality systems and processes

            Camella has instituted a number of systems designed to streamline operations and communications within the company and for its residents. Camella uses the German-devised software SAP (Systems, Applications and Products), which serves as an end-to-end application system addressing the ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system requirements of key departments including Sales, Administrative, Production, Customer Care, Technical Services, Purchasing, Accounting, and Finance.

5 Things To Consider When Buying Or Renting A Flat

Whether you are choosing a flat for rental or purchase, finding a home can be challenging and time consuming. Various expectations including interior preferences, budget, and additional charges, as well as location and safety should be considered by you.


Ensure that all the clauses of the documents (i.e., including the penalty clauses) are read and understood. Is the builder required to pay you penalty in case you do not receive the renovated flat within the grace period?

Additional expenses such as stamp duty, home loan processing fee, and safety deposit fee should be kept in mind.


Location, location, location! Find a flat that is near to a public transportation station, if transportation is a priority. Consider if your shortlisted flats are close to your place of education or employment.

Flats that are conveniently located near shopping malls and community parks are ideal. Examine how the location of the flat will affect your commute to school or work as well as your commute towards your friends and family.


Be honest with yourself and calculate your budget. Utilities are not usually included in the rent or purchase of a flat. Therefore, it is important to calculate the added costs of utilities when determining whether a flat suit your budget.

The gap between renting and owning a flat is massive. Stick with the guidelines of how much you can afford and avoid defaulting for non-payment.


Lower floors or stories do not offer as much privacy compared as the higher ones because they easily be accessed. If your building is located near the main road or a busy area, higher floors or stories tend to be more peaceful.

Please examine the security arrangements in the housing complex (e.g., CCTVs) if you are keen on staying on the lower floor or story.


The interior’s cleanliness demonstrates how responsible the property owner is. However, there is more to see beyond its freshly painted walls. You should check the water pressure and find out whether the windows and doors are closing well.

You should be given an inventory if the property was listed as fully furnished. During the first visit, you may establish whether all the items are part of the contract.

Why It’s Ideal to Buy a Home Amidst the Ongoing Pandemic

Property buying has been a concern of many because of the pandemic. While some proceeded in purchasing their dream homes, there are also some who held back. If you’re one of the people who are still pondering whether to get that dream home now, here are some reasons why you should.

1. Competition is less fierce.

Many of your fellow prospective homebuyers are preoccupied with other things and aren’t looking at properties for the meantime. Consequently, you’ll have fewer people to compete with.

As such, you don’t have to rush your purchase. You don’t need to try outbidding others as well. Moreover, you don’t have to settle for properties that are cheap but in hostile communities.

Be confident at exploring housing options that are in peaceful communities but are still sold at affordable prices. Take your time studying their benefits, too.

2. Sellers offer great deals.

To entice more buyers, developers offer different promos and flexible payments schemes that would be of help for buyers to proceed with their real estate investment.

Consider the homeowners who are selling their properties right now as well. This could be due to financial issues brought about by the pandemic. To get funds sooner, some of them may sell at prices lower than what you would assume. The downside, however, is that the properties may be poorly maintained. This makes newly built homes an attractive choice. Check the house listings online to see the available houses you can choose from. Once you see a property to your liking, inquire about the available payment terms and promos they offer.

3. Impending Price Increases

Sooner or later, various industries have to recover from months of low revenue or even deficits. More often than not, the way to do so is to increase the prices of the goods and services they’re providing.

So, if manufacturers of construction materials raise their prices, the prices of property developments would also increase.

When values of properties increase, your monthly repayments for a mortgage loan may become too high. Another possibility is that the seller may maintain the same amount of monthly repayment pre-pandemic, but the repayment period will be longer.

Before the inflation rate becomes too high, it’s good to study the market now and make a purchase.

4. Home purchasing has become more convenient.

You don’t have to go out of your current home to look for new property investments. If you are an OFW, this is even more convenient for you. Nowadays, real estate developers like Lessandra has offered digital tools to help homebuyers purchase real estate without having to travel back to Philippines. If you are an OFW, you can visit their website or their YouTube Channel to see the virtual tours. You can also reserve your property of choice and make payments online!
