Ohmyhome Philippines Launches Cashback Promotion

After years of serving as a full-fledged property platform catering to the home transaction needs of residents in Singapore, Ohmyhome expanded its services to Malaysia and the Philippines. Officially launching its Philippines website in October 2020, it has now been almost a year since Ohmyhome began offering its real estate services in the country.

As a lead up to the company’s upcoming first anniversary in the Philippines, and in line with its goal of helping Filipinos discover homes and property deals that get them the best value for their investment, Ohmyhome has launched the Ohmyhome Cashback Program for the benefit of all homeseekers buying a brand new home through the platform.

From September 9, 2021 onwards, those who buy brand new homes for sale on the Ohmyhome website or mobile app on their own or with the help of an Ohmyhome agent are eligible for the Cashback. Eligible homes include all properties listed on the platform, be it condos for sale located in Manila or houses and lots in places like Laguna or Cebu

The amount to be credited back to buyers is 2% of the total reservation fee plus 12 months’ worth of amortization for the property’s down payment. All buyers have to do is successfully make the consecutive payments for the first 12 months, and Ohmyhome takes care of the rest.

Why the Cashback?

Cashbacks or similar rewards programs aren’t a new concept in real estate and have been done by developers in the past to attract more buyers to their newly launched projects. A program that spans different locations, property types, and even developers/brands, however, is unprecedented, and having more homeseekers get greater value from their property purchase no matter where or what type of home they want is the motivation behind Ohmyhome’s Cashback program.

According to Ohmyhome Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer Race Wong, sharing the company’s savings to the buyers will help them in acquiring the exact homes they want; “Due to our ability to negotiate favorable terms with developers and our efficiency of operations, Ohmyhome can pass back some cost savings to our customers in the form of a Cashback. This creates a smarter community of property shoppers, where you can save more on your purchase.”

The Ohmyhome Cashback applies to all homes for sale listed by all partner developers on Ohmyhome, allowing homebuyers to get rewarded while finding their dream home from any of the following developers (and future Ohmyhome partners):

Hassle-free qualification and payout

True to its aim to make property transactions as simple to do as possible, Ohmyhome has made qualifying and receiving payment from the Cashback hassle-free. As previously mentioned, the promotion began on September 9, 2021, and from that point onwards, anyone who has purchased a property through Ohmyhome is eligible for the Cashback.

Whether buying a pre-selling condo or a house and lot for sale, all homeseekers who purchase via Ohmyhome will be entitled to the 2% Cashback as long as they make 12 consecutive months of amortization payments and will receive their payout within 60 days after the 12th payment. In terms of needed documents, homebuyers need not do anything else beyond what they’ve already done when making a reservation for their chosen home.

Landisco Partners with Ohmyhome to Promote Green Homes and More

Quezon City-based real estate developer Landisco Corporation has partnered with Ohmyhome Philippines for the promotions of their current residential developments. Among these is Melton Townhomes in Binangonan, Rizal.

A gated, low-density community located in Barangay Tagpos, Melton Townhomes is particularly notable for its stylish three-bedroom townhouses and for being a low-density green space that effectively uses renewable energy. Prime units in Melton Townhomes are equipped to run on solar energy, giving further value to homeowners who want to live in a cleaner environment and want to save significantly in utility expenses.

Keeping to its commitment to building stylishly designed, private, gated, and fully-fenced neighborhoods that are within proximity to everything homeowners need, Landisco is also looking forward to launching new projects soon, especially in its favored location of Rizal.

While only 26 kilometers east of Metro Manila, the province offers an immediate change of pace from the capital region. Municipalities like Binangonan and others in Rizal have an abundance of wide-open spaces that makes one feel as if they are much farther than they are from Metro Manila.

And with more developable land comes a wider variety of residential options for Landisco to offer, making homeownership a greater possibility for Filipinos who will have not only a viable location to live in at Rizal, but also a residence that meets all their needs and more.

Established in 2010, Landisco is still relatively new in Philippine real estate. Despite operating for only over a decade so far and not yet garnering the name recognition of longer-termed developers, the company has had a significant impact on the market, offering low-cost high-value homes in a relatively modest period. It is this consistency that has made it a suitable partner for Ohmyhome.

“At Ohmyhome, one of our goals continues to help every Filipino discover the home for them,” shares Ohmyhome Philippines Account Manager Cielo Dumlao, “and this partnership with Landisco allows us to give homeseekers using our website a worthy option for their investment.”

It is important for us to have Landisco as a featured developer on our platform,” adds Ohmyhome Philippines Marketing Manager Julian Sison, “because not only are their projects situated in some of the most in-demand places in the country, but because they line of homes vary, and the communities they have built features options for a wider range of homeseekers.”

Interested in what Landisco currently offers in the market? Visit Ohmyhome for the latest Landisco homes for sale, or connect with an Ohmyhome Agent for detailed information and/or to start the home buying process.

How Lumina Homes Addresses the Housing Deficit

These days, Lumina Homes is one of the most recognizable brands in the Philippines. It has consistently been a leading affordable housing developer since its inception eight years ago. For its continued efforts, Pag-IBIG again recognized Lumina Homes in its “Stakeholders Accomplishment Report 2020.”

Annually, Pag-IBIG awards the top housing developers in the nation. These are the ones that have contributed immensely to providing home buying opportunities to eligible members. This is in line with the corporation’s Shelter Program of the National Government through the Building Adequate, Livable, Affordable, and Inclusive Filipino Community Program.

Not only did Lumina Homes receive the “Highest Conversion Performance” in South Luzon in 2020, the brand was also a leader in Loan Value for 2020 per area. In 2020, it was a top-three developer in all of North Luzon and Visayas, top-four developer in South Luzon, and top-six developer in the National Capital Region.

Qualified “low-income earners” under Pag-IBIG could start living in a new Lumina Homes house and lot for sale for as low as P1,898 per month at 3%  annual interest. Lumina Homes offers quality properties in safe communities for as little as P500,000.

Apart from the low costs, Lumina Homes understands what home seekers want in a property. First, they want to secure their family’s future and finances. Second, each buyer is looking for safer, more accessible communities. The developer has adapted well to current housing trends brought about by the pandemic. In particular, Lumina Homes knows that there is high demand for homes in provinces.

As with other Vista Land developments, Lumina Homes carefully crafts communities and provides amenities like guarded fences with CCTV, basketball courts, landscaped gardens, and even a shuttle service. Even more commercial establishments near these projects are to be added very soon, as well. It also helps that the residential communities are situated near hospitals, roadways, transportation centers, and malls.

With about 50 projects in key locations all over the country, Lumina Homes has a sustainable model for the post-pandemic era. Lumina Homes properties in areas like Batangas, Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, and more are poised to see more homeowners come in. Based on Ohmyhome’s property inquiries alone, nearly 13% account for queries for towns and cities in and around these regions. Lumina Homes also offers projects in Bicol, Davao, and other prime localities.

According to a Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development report in 2020, the country’s housing backlog could balloon to 22 million in more or less two decades. To close the gap of 6.5 million between 2017 and 2020, the government needs 250,000 houses annually. Of course, any assistance from developers like Lumina Homes is encouraged and welcomed.

The developer’s partnership with Pag-IBIG only enhances its homeownership appeal. More affordable housing projects are improving their communities, as well. With this continued expansion, here’s to hoping that Lumina Homes, together with other local developers, can help beat the dreaded backlog prediction and narrow down the housing gap in the near future.

Am I Overpaying for a Property? An Expert Weighs In

So, you’ve decided that you want to buy a house. Great! But how can you be sure that you’re getting the best deal out of it? Overpaying for a property is something that a lot of home seekers can easily fall into. Getting a little too eager to purchase that dream home can lead you to make an ill-timed, ill-advised decision.

Ohmyhome Sales Head Cristy Ajero has been in the industry for more than 20 years now. She’s worked with top-tier real estate developers like Ayala Premiere, Century Properties, and more in the past. During her career, she admits that she’s seen her fair share of clients spending too much on properties, as well.

With that said, Cristy has a few tips of her own that she’s willing to share with prospective buyers like you. Here are some key factors you should consider before settling on a property, according to a real estate sales veteran.

Learn About the Prevailing Market Value

“The most effective way to avoid overpaying for a property you invest in is to canvas and check prevailing market value within the area,” Cristy claims.

Easier said than done, of course. This is one common mistake you don’t want to make. Don’t commit to a property until you’ve done the proper research. Compare property prices and look into local market trends. Your knowledge of the history of the property matters, as well.

Apart from this, remember to ask how long the property has been in the market and why. If possible, talk to other homeowners in the area, too.

“At Ohmyhome, as part of our service, we provide market analysis to the seller clients,” adds Cristy. “So, they are aware of the market price in their areas, be it house and lot, condominium, or commercial units.”

This means that when a buyer chooses to invest in one of Ohmyhome’s many property listings, they can be assured that they’re only getting the appropriate market value.

Inspect the Property Yourself

“It’s best to really check or make an ocular visit to see the entire property, so you can see if there are renovations needed that could add to the costs of the property,” the Ohmyhome sales head says.

Renovations can add up quickly, to say the least. Before purchasing a home, closely inspect the interior and exterior first. See if there are any structural damages, maintenance issues, and repair work that need to be resolved. You should also find out what kind of maintenance the property demands even after you purchase it.

Keep in mind that a home is an investment, as well. This makes it all the more important that you know how to take care of the property, just in case you decide to resell in the future.

Check the Papers

It sounds simple enough. But what exactly should you be looking at? Cristy chimes in.

“Is it still under bank loan? Is the property tax updated? How about the utilities, is it paid, as well?” These should be clear to you before you commit to any property. After all, you don’t want to be left with previously unknown extra fees and tedious paperwork. Make sure the property also meets standard housing regulations.

In addition, Cristy states: “It should also be clear to the buyer who pays for the certain taxes like capital gains tax, documentary stamps, and other charges.”

Most importantly, bear in mind that you don’t have to do it by yourself. A good agent who has your best interests at heart will be honest with you. They make sure that you’re well-informed about the property you’re choosing.

These tips are only a handful of the many lessons Cristy has picked up over the years. There’s certainly a lot more to the property transaction process than these things, just ask any expert sales agent. Industry knowledge and experience are something you just can’t replicate.

When it comes to house hunting, it’s best to leave it to the professionals.
