Tourism is a Top Priority here

With the cheap airfares and budget travel on the rise. People are getting into traveling other places within the country or overseas. This creates a new opportunity for local tourism to spring. The national government is considering it making Diosdado Macapagal International Airport (DMIA) as a dual airport with Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) in Paranaque City, Metro Manila.

DMIA has been servicing international budget carriers such as Tiger Airways, AirAsia and others airline companies with international flights and destinations from Asian countries or cities like Hong Kong, Bangkok, Seoul and even Darwin, Australia.

Local budget airlines such as Cebu Pacific, Zest Air, PAL Express have already been servicing air transport and passenger services to local destination in southern island of Visayas and Mindanao regions from Diosdado Macapagal International Airport at Clark Freeport Zone in Pampanga.

In a newspaper published report from The Philippine Daily Inquirer DMIA is expected to serve 750,000 passengers by the end of this year. By next year, "the number was seen to breach 1 million" said by Clark International Airport President Victor Luciano, in an interview.

Two months ago, Metro Manila and Central Luzon particularly the provinces of Bataan, Pampanga and Bulacan were affected with sudden downpour of heavy rains. We have experienced emergency situation on that particular week. Basic services were on a standstill as people are moving out to higher ground or flocking in to evacuation centers and seeking into safer place during those days of calamities.

 There have been some reports of breaches in dam and tail dike in towns nearby especially the neighboring Santo Tomas and Minalin as reported by the mayor and local government official on those affected towns. Emergency units such as Bureau of Fire Protection, Philippine National Police, City of San Fernando - LGU Search and Rescue and other affiliated volunteer emergency units are on high alert. Disasters and tragedies have made those affected resilient in such calamities.

Alvierra: The Next Nuvali is in Porac!

A week ago, Ayala Land Incorporated, the biggest property developer, has invited us on the official public presentation on the latest and upcoming project from Ayala Land Incorporated with its subsidiaries represented in the project are: Ayala Land Premiere, Alveo Land Corp, Amaia Land Corp and Bella Vista Land Corp. The name of the project is ALVIERRA.

"Where people, nature, and economy thrive"

An artist rendition of Alvierra, An Ayala Land Inc project in Porac, Pampanga.
The acquired property will be developed into a 1,000 hectares mixed used residential and commercial estate in this peaceful agricultural town of Porac. The concept of this master planned township type community is very similar to Nuvali, a development in the province of Laguna which is within the three suburban area and towns of Sta. Rosa, Calamba and Bińan. Alvierra is located within the environs and confines of Hacienda Dolores, a barrio in this side of town.

The town of Porac is a first class municipality in Pampanga in which the agriculture and sand quarrying are the main sources of revenue and income of the local government units and other businesses.
The location of the Hacienda Dolores is a mix of hills, valleys and plains relatively quiet with ambient view of the Zambales and Bataan's mountainous region in the west and Mt Arayat in the east. A majority of the land is still undeveloped with relatively rough terrain with natural pathways along the forested areas before. The area was once a hunting grounds of the indigineous or local Aeta tribe living in the hinterlands of the valleys and hills within the area.

Road Networks available

Villa Dolores, Porac, PampangaAlvierra  is along SCTex access road (not exactly along SCTex), the road that connects APFD Road to SCTEx Porac exit. With this location, it is strategically positioned for residents to have a choice of access either through using the SCTEx or Angeles Porac Floridablanca Dinalupihan (AFPD) road.

The ALI’s project is about 25 minutes from the Subic Bay Freeport (SBF) and 10 minutes from the Clark Freeport via the SCTEx.

Outdoor Sporting Activity Launched

Ayala Land Inc. recently held an activity called "EXPLORAC". It is a mix of trail running and biking adventure in the area. The biking route map revolves around the AyalaLand-Porac property and its environs. ALI is establishing first a unique outdoor activity that will strongly identify their big-ticket project here. They are also marketing an active lifestyle in communion with nature, and not just churning out one bland development after another.

AyalaLand set to float P 6 Billion bond for its projects

According to the news from Business Mirror, about P4 billion will be used to jumpstart several township projects such as Vertis North in Quezon City, Arca South or the former Food Terminal Inc. property in Taguig, Alvierra in Pampanga and Altaraza in Bulacan. This way it could infuse capital in carrying out the development of these project including Alvierra in Porac, Pampanga.


It seems progress and booming economy of this town will lead to prosperity among the local folks. Pampanga is in the sights of investors. It is in the "W" growth corridor as envisioned by our former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. ALI will have a good mix of its residential product brands from ALP, Alveo, Avida, Amaia and even Bella Vista to reach out to different economic markets and further enhance the potential of Alvierra as yet another sustainable township

On Buying Your First Home

By Benedict F. Baluyut, RMT, REB, RFP

Have you dreamed of acquiring your very own home? Have you imagined, seating on your porch, sipping your morning coffee and reading your newspaper. Seeing your neighbors in the street mowing their lawns or cleaning the front yard? Or just getting ready for morning rush of going to work.

Buying your first real estate residential property requires tedious and multiprocessing tasks of properly planning and making wise but crucial decisions. Buying a house doesn’t involve you as a breadwinner but involves your wife as a co-maker and a borrower and the whole family as beneficiary in securing your very own home and in the right neighborhood where you can live and flourish.
In my current experiences a real estate professional (PRC licensed real estate broker) it points to these important questions I raise for my clients before buying their prospective home?

Where is the location and accessibility of the house? – For first time buyers, real property must be located in a very accessible to main thorough fares and public transport, proximity such as schools, markets, church, business establishments, work place / office and others.  The golden rule in location is that it the home should be close within range of the conveniences on your planned homestead;

Do you have a working budget – For most licensed real estate broker / real estate salesman will ask you these questions if they have a ballpark figure of the property the prospective client wants to buy. These should be disclosed in order for them to find a property with their listings and would lessen the time in searching for a right listing;

Are your finances in order? – For most first time buyer, they should be financial ready, sound and capable in putting on the down payment for their dream home. A down payment of a home may vary from the standard 20% to 30% but with most developers can offer lesser at 10% during promotions by the marketing strategists of these property developers. Usually, a real estate professional would provide explain the intricacies of the property and give you a sample computation in order to have an idea on how much a property will cost in the long run. With the increase trend of socialized housing in recent years, the “Rent-to-own” payments schemes had been paved by socialized housing developer to attract prospective clients on such properties; 
Are you prepared to take mortgage or loans? – There are payment options available in borrowing money from a financial institutions or agencies such as a bank, private lending firms, and even the Home Development Mutual Fund (PAG-IBIG Fund). A credit investigation and background check is done by their credit investigators. If a prospective qualifies on the standards of the credit investigator of the lending institution. He or she is given an approval on lending their money needed to pay the property to the property developers. Financial documents, your Net Disposable Income (NDI) or daily to monthly expenses of cost of living and other pertinent details should be in order in getting your loans approved. Putting everything in order is crucial to fast track your acquisition of your dream home.  Currently, there are available real estate financing schemes in the market and most of their interest rates per annum may vary starting at 4% to 18% per annum on the years of the property will be settled from a minimum of one year to maximum of 30 years, fixed rates and adjustable mortgage rates are also available;   

Security, amenities and other facilities of the house where it is located? – Most buyers will not settle for less on the safety and security of their loved ones. Safety and security has become a top priority for prospective clients. Some would prefer to live in secure and good neighborhoods such as a private subdivision, townhouses and clients may prefer in non-subdivision residences.

Other things to remember: Are you prepared to add extra cost on these? Homeowners Association 
Fee for those living in private subdivisions, real estate taxes, Property Insurance and Deeds of Restriction on the subdivision you intend to acquire your property etc.  

With the growing consumer confidence of most Filipinos going high, many people have dream of owning a property but are hindered with the facts that it involves higher understanding on finances that an average Juan do not understand but the pride of ownership is somewhat an achievement for those who have acquired and already paid the mortgages and liens it reflects on their resiliency of saving for their future as it adds to your financial net worth in financial report card.
