How to Stay Safe in Your Luxury Vacation Home this Summer

The country may be reopening and businesses may slowly be getting back to operations, but the risk of COVID-19 remains. This new reality extends to vacation plans, summer getaways, and even staycations. We expect that in the next couple of months, we will still weigh whether a trip makes sense. If you are considering taking a vacation, staying in a vacation home can be a relatively safe way to do it, provided that the proper precautions are taken.  

There are ways to lower the risk of getting infected or spreading COVID-19 to others. Driving to a destination, for example, allows you to reduce your exposure compared to flying or taking public transportation. Similarly, staying in a vacation home, which does not require interaction in public spaces and often allows for remote check-ins, can be a safer option than a hotel. Once you have settled into a vacation property, it is almost the same as your own home, where everything is curated for you and you can control all the exposures. To keep your vacation safe and worry-free, we have listed some steps to take to minimize the risks.

 

Stay Safe by Researching Local Infection Rates

When planning for a staycation in your vacation home, make sure that you consider the risk of getting exposed and the possibility of posing a risk to others. These are at least two points to consider when it comes to your choice of destination. If you are traveling from a place with a high rate of COVID-19 but are set on getting away, make sure to observe a strict home quarantine for at least two weeks before you go or after you arrive at your destination. Bring with you your groceries and supplies so you don’t need to go out to buy from the store.

Wearing facemasks is a great way to stay safe and keep others around you safe as well.

 

You also have to think about whether the COVID-19 situation is uncontrolled or getting worse where you are going, which might not make it a great time to visit. After all, you can always come back post-pandemic. Monitor the coronavirus situation at your desired destination. Remember that these trends can change quickly, which is why it’s best to vacation not too far from your place of residence. 

 

Check Local Regulations and Restrictions

Attitudes and responses toward the coronavirus pandemic vary drastically from one destination to the next. It would be better to ask others who are in or have visited the area recently for their personal insights, so you know what to expect and so you can make an informed decision about whether it is right to travel to your vacation home or stay safe, during this time. The rules and regulations for businesses and public spaces may be different in the destination you are staying in, even if it is not that far from your home. If you are hoping to visit a particular park, recreational area, beach, restaurant, museum, or any other venue, make sure that it is open, and check to see if reservations are required and if they are limiting capacity or operations in any way. 

 

Check the Cleaning Protocols in the Property to Stay Safe

While COVID-19 is primarily spread through close person-to-person contact, it may also spread through surfaces. Check the cleaning policies being implemented in the property. Make sure that you disinfect your own property for the safety of your family. Do a quick inspection and relay your concerns immediately in case cleanliness and sanitation are not being prioritized in the property.

 

Travel Cautiously

Should you or someone in the family start exhibiting COVID symptoms before the trip, schedule a swab test and self-isolate for 14 days, even if you test negative for COVID-19. If you experience any symptoms and fever, you should not be around other people. If you are well and healthy, you should still make sure that on your trip to your vacation home, you make only minimal stops, practice social distancing, and wear masks and use hand sanitizer when you have to pump gas or leave the car for essentials. When you arrive at your vacation property, do a thorough wipe-down yourself before you unpack. Make sure to clean high-touch surfaces such as counters, faucets, doorknobs, and the refrigerator handle.  Practice social distancing and wear a mask when outside the property. Remember that the virus can be transmitted from asymptomatic individuals that may feel perfectly healthy

It is important to sanitize and prepare your items safely when traveling.

 

If possible, do not permit anyone outside your household to enter the property. If you invite people over, consider a socially distant gathering that takes place outside rather than anything indoors. Most vacations will require navigating other environments in addition to the vacation home. A trip to the beach or park is relatively safe, particularly if you can keep a distance from others and refrain from close, extended conversations with people outside your household. Remember to avoid crowded places. If you want to visit popular spots, go at off-hours. Should you or someone in the family get sick and experience symptoms during the trip, keep him/her isolated in a separate room and call your doctor for advice.

 

Respect the community

This has always been an important part of travel, but it has become an even more critical point during the coronavirus pandemic. Wherever you are traveling, think about the potential risks you carry with you, as well as the potential benefits you can bring to the local economy and how best to reduce that risk and stay safe while also supporting the community that is hosting you.

 

Stay Safe and Pay It Forward

You would surely want to stay safe and have your vacation place virus-free, so don’t forget to disinfect before leaving the property. Once you return home, pay it forward by posting about your experience, particularly regarding cleanliness, so other people can make an informed decision about staying in a vacation property during this time.  

If you or someone you know are planning to invest in a luxury vacation home you might want to consider buying a property in a safe and secure luxury development such as Crosswinds by Brittany Corporation. 

Crosswinds is a 100-hectare Swiss-inspired luxury residential property tucked in its own private enclave, which is surrounded by 35,000 pine trees.

Young professional woman making decisions to rent or own luxury condo in Crosswinds Tagaytay - Luxury Homes by Brittany

When deciding whether to rent or own a luxury condo or luxury house, make sure to lay out all your options and reasons.

Pros and cons of renting or owning a property

 

Advantages

When you own a property, you can consider it as a good term investment. You are investing in an asset for yourself rather than a property management company. You will also have complete freedom to live however and whatever you want. You can have your pets, you can change appliances, and renovate without anyone stopping you. And most of all, you can have your own privacy.

Although owning a home is a lifelong goal of many, renting has advantages too. Same as when you own a property, renting can give you some flexibility and freedom as well. You can make a quick decision to move out and you have no responsibility to maintain the rented area. You just can simply tell the owner or landlord and he or she will do all the maintenance for you. And also, you only have a short-term commitment when you rent. Generally, renters have greater flexibility in where they live, have lower utility bills, have access to some amenities such as pools and gyms that might otherwise be excessively expensive.

Tip: Ask your colleagues, family, and friends for recommendations. Their opinions may influence your decision to rent or own a luxury home.

Disadvantages

Both renting and owning property have their own disadvantages as well, but what’s best for you depends on your circumstances.

Owning a home is a financial commitment that requires you to plan and reflect ahead. Moving into it can be costly, a longer commitment will be required and it will cost you extra. When you own a house or property, you are not that flexible as those who are renting. Homeowners can possibly face many risks while owning a house like possible inability to pay taxes, avoid costly repairs, or even neighborhood changes.

On the other hand, if you rent a property, you can’t make any changes to your unit without the owner or landlord’s approval. You can’t also predict a rent increase at any time. Renting is more flexible and often cheaper than owning a property but there are plenty of downsides, such as lack of privacy, strict rules to follow and if you have any issue, it is great to know that someone else is responsible for anything but this doesn’t mean that this person will come to fix the concern right away.

Condo Turnover: A key to your new unit in Alpine Villas

 

Moving into a newly bought unit is the most pivotal event and indeed a thrilling time for any buyer. Even if you are a businessman planning to rent out your luxury condo, you’ll tend to overlook a few things as you leap for joy to get a key for your new unit. This is why you should be familiar with the condo turnover process.

Are you one of the homeowners who bought a condo and waited too long for the condo turnover? At last, the long wait is finally over!

 

What is a Condo Turnover? 

 

Condominium unit turnover is the method of transferring physical ownership of a property from the developer to its rightful owner. On the other hand, due to a variety of factors including the property developer’s financial health, compliance issues, and other macroeconomic conditions delays in the condo turnover process usually occur or what we call Condo Turnover delay. However, condo turnover delays are less likely to be a problem if you have an investment with trustworthy developers like Vista Land. Vista Land, one of the leading integrated property developers in the Philippines, and the country’s largest homebuilder is committed to delivering timely and convenient condo unit turnovers for its investors. Brittany, Vista Land’s luxury real estate brand has just topped off Bernese, the first building of the Alpine Villas, Crosswinds’ esteemed residential condominium project.

Even amidst the pandemic, pursuing a luxury condo investment in 2021 would be a rewarding investment for you and your family. This is why you must know what to consider before the condominium unit is formally handed over to you. 

 

Here are the following keys to open your door:

Contract signing for the condo turnover process

1. Revisit your Contract’s fine print 

When the condo turnover clearance is issued, the condo turnover process begins. Make sure you read the contract’s fine print and grasp the terms and conditions stated in it. Often, look over the lease and see if there are any costs or hidden fees associated with the condo turnover.

If you are not sure about the information stated in your contract, consult an expert to ensure that the contract does not contain any hidden charges. A trusted developer like Brittany Corporation as it was known for the thematic appeal of its community which brings you closer to the world’s most scenic and luxurious destinations, and to its commitment to provide luxury service to their tenants. 

2. Measure the Floor Area

If you are planning to buy a luxury condo, it’s important to know that the sales contract contains all of the necessary information. It also specifies the unit’s size or area, which is usually expressed in square meters. If required, confirm the floor area or employ a professional to do so.

3. Examine the Flooring, Ceiling, and Walls

Make a note of the set condo turnover date, which will require you to personally inspect your condominium unit. Have someone with you to double-check every corner of the condo—a trusted friend, family member, or lawyer. The contract’s specifications of the unit as well as your requested furnishing should have been executed accordingly.

Start with the standards: Flooring, ceiling, and walls. First, flooring must be even and should follow the specification of flooring surfaces based on your agreement. Second, examine the paint applied on the walls and ceiling of your unit. Take note if there are scratches, cracks, chips, and leaks that need to be redone or repainted. Lastly, if you are planning to install wall-mounted furniture, now is the right time to inquire about the guidelines and restrictions of your new unit. 

4. Inspect the Standard Furnishings in the Luxury Condo

The Standard Furnishings of a Luxury Condo Unit: Pedestal type lavatory, Rainshower, Water closet, and Exhaust

 

The luxury condominium units at Alpine Villas come with standard furnishings such as toilets and shower, a sink in the bathroom and kitchen, a countertop, cabinets, and many more. These deliverables are specified in the contract. Luxury condo developers make sure that these deliverables are all working and free from any damages, leaks, and all.

Take a closer look at the following: first, test the toilet and flush, check if there is any leakage under the sink. Next, try the shower and faucets if it’s properly working. Also, examine all the doors, built-in cabinets, and even tiles. Lastly, hinges should be properly installed and not loose. Take note of your observations, have a checklist, and jot down the fixtures that may require a repair and address to the developer or to the person concerned. 

5. Check all the Electrical Outlets

Electrical outlets in luxury condominiums are guaranteed to be safe by trusted developers.

 

You are in effect certifying that the unit is in order as stipulated in the contract. Thus, it is important to inspect every corner of your condominium unit before signing the Certificate of AcceptanceAs early as possible during the condo turnover process, report directly to the developer your concerns regarding electrical issues. This is why you should bring an electrician before moving to your new condo unit to inspect and test thoroughly the necessary procedures to avoid hassle and worries with your new home.

6. Visit your Parking Slot

Luxury condo developers give premium parking spaces for their investors.

 

Please take note that not all luxury condominium units come with a parking slot, so the parking stipulations are typically in a separate contract. If you really want to have your own parking space, you might purchase it separately. 

Your developer will let you know if you could inspect your parking slot on the same day as your condo unit is turned over. If so, check to see if the requirements, particularly the size and position, match those in the contract. Inspect the area for any potential risks, such as the presence of flammable chemicals and other hazardous materials nearby, and notify the developer immediately to avoid any unforeseen events. 

7. Do Not Rush the Inspection Process

Carefully inspecting your condo unit pays at the end of the property buying journey.

 

This should go without saying, but it needs to be said nonetheless: checking your luxury condo unit takes time. Ideally, you should allot a few hours to inspect your unit. The larger your unit, the longer it will take to thoroughly inspect. While at first glance your unit may appear to be perfect, it pays to check the details to ensure that you won’t encounter any problem when you actually go and move in. Take as much time as you need to ensure that you have covered every aspect of your newly bought condominium unit. Preparing a checklist for the fixtures and furnishings, as well as any special requests that may require a review, is highly recommended. If any repairs or changes are needed, make a detailed list. If necessary, jot down your suggestions and observations. 

8. Final Reminder to Condominium Owners

Buying a luxury condo in Tagaytay will be worth one’s investment.

 

At the end of the day, don’t stress yourself out if you see some flaws or concerns in your future unit. Remember that the condo turnover process actually exists to rectify any problems before you live in the unit. Be polite but firm if you do notice any potential challenges. Once the developer addresses your concerns, schedule another inspection to ensure that things are finally in order. This way, once you finally move in, you can rest assured that your new unit will be a truly safe and comfortable home for you and your family.

Buying a luxury condo unit at Alpine Villas takes you one step closer to live luxuriously at Crosswinds Tagaytay.

Should You Invest in Luxury Condo as a Vacation Property?

 

You fell in love with the beach house you rented over the holidays. You were amazed by the private house overlooking the rolling green fairways, where you and your family stayed a couple of weeks ago. You cannot forget the condominium tucked away in a quiet and gated luxury development. The fresh air, nature’s sounds, thousands of pine trees, and the cool and gentle breeze. Now you are thinking about investing in a vacation luxury condominium property to call your own. 

 

Are you a vacation home buyer, an investor, or both?

 

Before you consider buying a vacation home, it would help if you could assess yourself – are you a vacation home buyer, an investor, or both?

A lot of people who consider buying a vacation property invest while on vacation or shortly after returning home. If you want a vacation home for your family and friends to enjoy, and consider renting it out for a couple of weeks each year, you could be categorized as a vacation home buyer. 

Your primary reason to purchase a property is for personal use. This is why people are using the term “second home” – a vacation home away from home where you can just relax, unwind, or do whatever you want to do on your own property.

On the other hand, if you are looking for properties while on vacation, then you are thinking like an investor. 

Your primary goal for purchasing a vacation property is to make a steady source of income. Planning how you could maximize profit from a real estate investment by leasing it out all year makes you a potential investor.

Moreover, there are some who combine these two options. They rent out the vacation property most of the time while saving specific weeks for their own enjoyment. This can mean using the vacation property during the holidays or peak seasons or turning down longer-term rentals to be able to use the vacation property for their own travel.

 

Why do you want to buy a vacation property?

 

Take time to think about why you want to buy a vacation property. Having the money to buy a vacation home is different from buying a vacation property and needing to rent it out to pay its expenses. 

If you are considering buying a vacation home, you should be able to pay all of the expenses without renting it out. Meanwhile, if you are buying a vacation property as an investment, you should do your own research and examine if the property can really help you pay your expenses by generating passive income for you. 

If you plan to blend these options, you also need to think like an investor. It is critical to know how much rental income you would need to afford the vacation property. And you should have a backup plan in case it does not rent. 

 

The advantages of a vacation property

 

A lot of people who bought vacation homes are happy with their decisions because they enjoy using and living in the property whenever they go on vacation or they need to unwind. If you choose a vacation home wisely, you and your family will be able to enjoy it for years. 

As an investor, buying the right vacation property may mean value appreciation over time and higher rental income. You can also be able to make extra income if you list out your property on listing sites. 

Over time, the right vacation rental investment in the right location can significantly increase its value, making you earn more should you decide to sell it. If you are thinking long-term, your vacation property can also ensure you have healthy finances upon retirement. You can either sell it to healthcare, travel, and a lot more or you can keep it as your retirement home.

 

What to note when buying a property

 

If you are buying a vacation home for personal use, you may feel that you are should you want to spend your vacation elsewhere. Without property management, HOA, or your own willingness to pay for repairs, you could spend a lot of your vacation time doing work at your property rather than relaxing. 

If you decide to lease out your property, you need to be fine with strangers having to use your belongings. It may also incur more wear and tear and property damage as tenants come and go. 

 

Should you buy a vacation property as an investment?

 

If this will be your first time investing in a home outside your primary residences, it is important that you learn more about real estate investing. So it would be best to run the numbers, consider all factors, and evaluate if it is really worth investing in given your financial situation.

It is true that a vacation rental investment is an excellent strategy to make money in real estate, and this can be done by studying the market and checking out the property trends.

Today, making money with vacation rentals has become easier because of various rental websites and listing platforms, including social media. If you’re looking to make extra income through real estate, buying a vacation home might be the best way to enter into the real estate business and become a property investor. 

You can actually buy a dual-purpose property – use it as a second home and spend your vacations there and lease it out to guests for the rest of the year. The main benefit of this approach is that you gain a steady source of income without having to buy an investment property. 

 

How do you estimate the income potential of your vacation property?

 

The goal of every investor is a positive cash flow, which is when income is higher than the expenses made. So no matter what rental strategy you are planning to take, you should look for a property that can generate consistent income. 

Check and analyze the upfront and ongoing costs, as well as your potential income. In this way, you will see if the cash flow will work for you. 

You have to remember that investing in a vacation rental property does not guarantee that you will become rich quickly, but it can be a lucrative source of income. But you might be asking yourself how much money you can make from such property. There is no single answer to this question, as there are a lot of variables that can affect the potential income. 

The primary factor to consider is the location of the property. A vacation home located in popular travel destinations is likely to have a high occupancy rate, which is key to generating positive cash flow. Other aspects include proximity to essential amenities, excellent weather, fantastic view, and low crime rate, among others. To increase your revenue, make sure to keep your vacation property occupied as often as possible.
