Discover the joys of home ownership with Lumina Homes during the Shopee 7.7 Mid-year Sale

With all your other expenses and payables, you might be putting your dreams of having your own home on hold.

While that is a valid decision, you might be missing out on some of the benefits of home ownership, such as:

  • Establishing equity. As you continue to pay your mortgage, the value of your home increases.
  • Greater control over expenses. You might be right in believing that your house amortization will eat a huge chunk from your monthly budget. However, this amount is fixed (unless you choose to change it) and has a finite period to pay. That means you can plan for your expenses. Plus, it also builds your fiscal discipline by accustoming you to setting aside a large part of your income for your house payments. In contrast, paying rent never ends and is also subject to price increases depending on your landlord.
  • Strengthening your credit. Demonstrating how you are able to fulfill your monthly payments helps strengthen your credit over time, making it easier for you to get financing for other items in the future such as a car loan or business loan.

Things to Do in Burlington This Summer

Burlington is a city of about 42,000 people in Vermont that is known as the “City of Lakes” and “City of Parks.” It’s also known for its natural beauty and outdoor activities.

It is the perfect place for people to get away from the hustle and bustle of life.

The city offers an abundance of things to do that are both relaxing and exciting. There are lots of natural beauty spots, such as Lake Champlain and the Green Mountains. The city also has a variety of restaurants, bars, and shops that will make any visitor feel like they want to start looking at Burlington houses for sale.

In Burlington, you can find everything you need to enjoy your time off from work or school-and it’s all within walking distance!

Here are some enjoyable things to do in Burlington, Vermont, this summer.

Visit the Vermont State House

Lake Champlain is the largest lake in New England and a popular tourist destination.

The lakefront is one of the most beautiful places to walk in Burlington. It is a short walk from the waterfront to the State Street Bridge and back again.

Lake Champlain has clear water, a sandy beach, and a wide variety of wildlife. The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife manages the lakeshore for fishing, boating, swimming, and other recreational activities, all of which you’ll love in summer.

This walk will take you along Lake Champlain with its clear water, sand beach, and wide variety of wildlife. You can enjoy fishing or swimming on the sandy beach or simply just walking along the waterfront as you see some beautiful views.

Get Some Good Food and Drinks

Burlington has many great places to eat, but these are some of the best restaurants worth checking out:

1) The Friendly Toast – Breakfast, lunch and dinner. This restaurant offers great food with friendly service. They have a wide variety of breakfast and lunch options like omelets, muffins, sandwiches and bagels.

2) The Burlington Farmers Market – This market is open every day from 9 to 2 and offers fresh produce, meat, cheese, breads, and more.

3) Cosmic Grind Coffee Shop – Cosmic Grind Coffee Shop is a small coffee shop in Burlington. The success of Cosmic Grind is highly due to its welcoming atmosphere and great customer service. Cosmic Grind is a great place to stop by for an iced coffee or a warm drink on a cold day. They also have delicious pastries that are baked fresh in-house every morning.

Ride the Burlington Greenway

The Burlington Greenway is an eight-mile-long bike and pedestrian path that runs through the heart of the city.

The Burlington Greenway stretches from the South End to Burlington’s waterfront, and it connects to other bike paths along the Lake Champlain shore.

The greenway has a few small bridges and footbridges over the tracks. It is also home to a large number of trees and plants, which provide shade for walkers and cyclists, as well as a natural habitat for all the wildlife.

Lumina Homes recognized as Best Affordable Housing Developer in the first Carousell Property Awards

Lumina Homes has grown from a low-cost housing brand to one that provides a Filipino family’s ultimate dream home, but it always looks back to its roots of offering affordable and decent homes to everyone. Several award-giving bodies validate this commitment of Lumina Homes, and recently, the first-ever Carousell Property Awards recognized Lumina as Best Developer for Affordable Housing.

The 1st Carousell Property Awards celebrates the country’s most recognizable real estate developers and their finest developments. The Best Developer for Affordable Housing award is one of the nine categories, some of which were bestowed to Lumina’s sister companies under Vista Land & Lifescapes Inc., one of the country’s leading integrated property developers.

Carousell Award of Lumina Homes

Vista Land has guided Lumina in its 10 years of building more than 100,000 homes for Filipino families.

These Lumina projects are available in over 50 key cities and municipalities in the Philippines such as in Rizal, Bulacan, Laguna, Isabela, Bataan, Zambales, Nueva Ecija, Tarlac, Pangasinan, La Union, Cagayan, Isabela, Cavite, Batangas, Laguna, Quezon, Albay, Sorsogon, Iloilo, Cebu, Negros Occidental, Agusan del Norte, Zamboanga del Sur, Bukidnon, Misamis Occidental, South Cotabato and Davao del Norte.

Each is strategically located close to major thoroughfares, transport hubs, schools, hospitals, and business and leisure centers.

Lumina also listens well to current market needs, and it has started converting its developments to cater to the demand for bigger living spaces. Due to the pandemic, most property seekers are looking into two-storey house and lots with bigger room provisions, bigger lots, and better ventilation.

“We in Lumina Homes are committed to go beyond what is expected of an affordable housing community. We will continue to maximize and level up our developments’ potential in providing residents the quality home and life they deserve,” shares Engr. Joemi Tan, Division Head of Lumina Homes.

Recently, Lumina “unboxed” eSpacio, its very own amenity center composed of well-thought and functional amenities. Aside from standard amenities such as a multi-purpose hall, mini gardens, playground, jogging path, and a shuttle terminal, eSpacio also boasts of a holistic community center and “Tambayan ni Juan.”

The community center has office provisions for Health Center, Day Care Center, Senior Citizen Center, and Barangay Center while the “Tambayan ni Juan” features an al fresco dining hub with live performers on stage, so that homeowners can have a safer place to enjoy new-normal leisure and entertainment.

But Lumina’s advantage over most affordable housing brands is its push for real-estate solutions early on, even before the pandemic started.

For safer, smoother and faster transactions, Lumina offers efficient virtual home tours and subdivision walkthroughs. It has also perfected online reservation, online appointment booking, and online payment options through digital wallets and digital banking in partnership with national bank players.

Why Rizal is the perfect setting for your dream home

If you’re tired of the constant traffic, heat and pollution of the metro, but still want to have the option to venture into its cities every once in a while, then investing in your own house and lot in Rizal may be your best option.

Removed from the chaos of the metro but still highly accessible

Being located just outside Metro Manila, the province of Rizal offers you an alternative way of life compared to the busier conditions of living in the metro.

However, with new developing infrastructure such as the Metro Manila Expressway, as well as established public transport systems between Metro Manila and Rizal, you’re only a short ride away from where you want to go.

The site for sights, culture and leisure

With its location at the foot of Sierra Madre, with Laguna de Bay to the south, the province of Rizal also affords easy access to incredible sights. These include the awesome views from atop limestone formations at the Masungi Georeserve, waterfalls surrounded by lush forests such as Daranak Falls and Batlag Falls, and the dramatic sight of giant windmills against the azure sky at the Pililla Wind Farm.

Known as “The Cradle of Philippine Art,” Rizal houses notable museums such as Pinto Art Museum, which showcases contemporary artworks, and Casa Santa, which houses what is considered to be the most extensive private collection of Santa Claus items in the world.

Many leisure resorts capitalize on Rizal’s relaxing atmosphere. Aside from scenic vistas and refreshing swimming pools, resorts like Bahay Bakasyunan also provide adventure-themed activities that make the most of its natural surroundings such as ziplining, wall-climbing, ATV rides and more.

Gastronomic pleasures in beautiful surroundings

Taking advantage of the province’s rich culinary heritage, abundance of fresh ingredients and naturally stunning environments, restaurateurs are setting up their destination eateries in Rizal.

Sammy’s in Cainta serves Indonesian-inspired food in a cozy and intimate setting, while the Burrow Cafe in Taytay features a seasonal menu made with locally sourced ingredients in a underground cafe surrounded by a verdant forest. Tahanan Bistro in Antipolo, on the other hand, showcases Filipino food served against a breathtaking view of Metro Manila cityscape.

Find your dream home in the Land of Dreamweavers: Lumina Polomolok in South Cotabato

Admittedly, I haven’t had the chance to venture too far from Metro Manila when it comes to my domestic travels.

Aside from short stays in the provinces surrounding the metro, and the intermittent tours in the northern part of Luzon during Holy Week breaks together with the family, my jobs have allowed me to visit just some parts of Visayas such as Bohol and Cebu.

However, I haven’t really had the opportunity to explore Mindanao, which is quite a shame, really. After all, the country’s second largest island actually has a lot to offer when it comes to amazing views, captivating culture, appetizing delicacies and more.

Take Polomolok in South Cotabato, for example. This municipality does not just boast of a rich and vibrant culture and scenic vistas, it is also possesses a thriving economy.

The Land of Dreamweavers and Dreamy Sights

Polomolok is home to various indigenous groups whose rich heritage brings a lot of color and interest to the area. One of these groups – the T’boli – are renowned for the T’nalak, a special fabric woven by the women of their community from their dreams.

Various unique and colorful iterations of this fabric come into full display as during local celebrations. The Flomlok Festival held during the Foundation Anniversary of Polomolok in September showcases costumes made with T’nalak worn by the locals for the street dance competitions and other festivities.

Have fun in the great outdoors with your Lumina Rosario community

While we do spend most of our leisure time, safe and cozy, inside our home, it is the community just outside its doors that make it the ideal abode.

When we take our family on a sojourn beyond the walls of our house and explore our immediate vicinity, we are able to take part in the local scene. Our interactions with our neighbors and local merchants during our time out of doors help shape our total experience in our particular locale.

Lumina Rosario

Take living in Lumina Rosario, for example.

This newest project of mass housing community developer Lumina Homes is located in a 46-hectare property in Barangay Quilib in Rosario, Batangas.

Lumina Rosario House Models

In this location, would-be homeowners on the lookout for a house and lot for sale in Batangas, can find their dream home among the Lumina Homes’ well-designed and constructed house models, regardless of their stage in life.

The Anna Rowhouse, for instance, is a bungalow type dwelling with a 24 square meter floor area and a 36 square meter minimum lot area, perfect for those who want a starter home. Already built with living and dining areas, kitchen, toilet and bath, as well as a provision for one bedroom and service area, it is ideal for those who want something low-maintenance for their first abode.

On the other hand, home buyers with small families would gravitate towards the Adriana Townhouse. A two-storey home with a 44 square meter floor area and a 36 square meter minimum lot area, it is built with living and dining areas, kitchen, toilet and bath, provision for two bedrooms, service area and a garage.

Lastly, home buyers with larger families would find either the Angeli Duplex or the Angeli Single Firewall well-suited to their needs. Both feature a floor area of 53 square meters and a minimum lot area of 63 square meters, and are built with living and dining areas, kitchen, toilet and bath, 3 bedrooms with partitions, family area and garage. The difference between the two models is that the duplex is one of two adjacent units while the single firewall is detached from other units by a space of approximately 3 meters. These house models definitely provide families with more room to grow!

These housing options are made even more accessible to would-be home buyers thanks to various financing options, such as:

  • Pag-Ibig Financing which has an interest rate of just 6.5% over a payment period ranging from 5 to 30 years
  • Bank Financing which has faster loan processing payable between 5 to 20 years
  • Deferred Financing which involves straight payment of total contract price over 24 month at 0% interest
  • Spot Cash Total Contract Price which involves full payment of total contract price within 30 days after reservation applying a 6% discount.

The Amenities.

Aside from a wonderful structure that they can furnish according to their taste and mold into a home for their family, Lumina homeowners also get to enjoy a sprawling outdoor area where they can hold fun activities together with their neighbors and establish their own community.

Kids can have fun playtime with their friends at the parks and playground area while the more sports-minded residents can make full use of the covered basketball court for sports and fitness activities.
