Company Profile and History

East Homes’ official and legal name is Bacolod South Homes Corporation. BSHC because it was the first project along Araneta St. Highway, Barangay Sum-ag, Bacolod City. The company has existed in Bacolod city for since 2002 and remains as one of the biggest, most stable and fastest-growing locally-based real estate company.

The subdivision’s owner is always present at the office during working hours, that’s why you will have no problem with the corporate structure if you have any concerns, requests or problems to voice out.

How Can You Benefit from House and Lot in Bacolod?

Over the years of my life as a homeowner and agent, I saw three major ways how one can benefit from Real Estate Investment:

  1. Reside in it. 
    1. Practicality. If you are for good na in one location, it is no longer practical to rent for a longer period of time. Rent is only good if you think you are transient – maybe as a student, a supplement employee or bakasyonista.
    2. Legacy. Unlike condos, house and lots appreciate through time and can be passed on to your children. Condominiums usually have a time expiry and can no longer be resided after a period of decades.
    3. Proximity. Your children, nephews, grandchildren someday will need to study in the city, and instead of renting, a house can greatly benefit them and will save them from transportation expenses, time waste and energy waste.
    4. Emergency. Your elderlies who will need hospital or medical care may need to live in proximity to the medical professionals. Urban residences are more needed as the years come, especially as our government aims to decongest Manila and attempt federalism.
  2. Rent it out
  3. Retire in it
  4. Resell it – Real Estate, especially lots, grow in the value through time and is one of the best forms of investments.

East Homes unit turned into passive income rental property

Create passive income as you reach retirement. Time will come when you can no longer go overseas, or drive long hours, or wake-up on weekdays to earn a living. If you have a home or an extra home, you can rent it to tenants and you receive monthly income without doing anything.The younger = the cheaper, the better. Your renters pay you, and you pay your housing loan (called amortization) and you keep the remaining as your passive income without doing anything. I bought my first house when I was 21. The advantage of starting early is that you can get longer terms and lower amortization. Yes, it will take longer but compare that to an older person who is 45 years old and can no longer avail a housing loan because he is only allowed 15 years and he can no longer afford the shorter term period? Starting early is the key.

Resell it. 

  1. Short-term– you can buy, improve and sell within a short of time so you can get your returns but the appreciation is not nearly as high as the long-term.
  2. Long-term– you buy the house and lot, improve, reside in it or rent it out to tenants, then after 10-15 years, you can resell it a higher price due to the lot appreciation less the house building depreciation.

Requirements.

  1. I have friends and clients who applied for visa to the US and one of the proof is home ownership. I took a copy of the contract to sell and the client was approved to go abroad.
  2. In times of need or emergency and you need a credit line, creditors might need a copy of the title of your owned property as a collateral.

Mission, Vision, and Motto

Company Motto: “Experience a Life of Convenience and Affordability”
Based on the mission, East Homes’ mission is to become a housing company that offers affordable yet quality projects. The company envisions a future where every Filipino enjoys the blessings of a homeownership and the benefits that go along with it.

Previous Project Locations

The succeeding project was called East Homes because it was located in the east part of Bacolod City which is called Fortune Towne, Barangay Estefania. The project grew to become East Homes 1, 2 and 3 with over 5,000 residences and around 3,000 homes.

Soon, Fortune Towne and Estefania became one of the most developed and middle-class populated areas of the capital, a city within a city. In 2016, East Villas, a project of East Homes / BSHC, was started and is now rising in the further end part of the Fortune Towne.

The subdivision company owned and developed Santorini Subdivision which is located in Eroreco, Bacolod City. The 2 bedroom and 3 bedroom house models in Santorini, East Homes 3, 4, 5 and 6 were similar (with some variety such as glass sliding windows in the newer phases).

East Homes Mansilingan

East Homes grew and branched out and the next project, East Homes 4, 5 and 6 were located in Barangay Mansilingan, Bacolod City.

In the latter part of 2017, East Homes 6 was extended and added 1,000 pre-selling units composed of five types.Amenities

-Club House
-Guard House / Security

25 years ₱2,133.95 per month
30 years ₱1,897.22 per month

Personal Note: If you can afford the 3 or 2 bedroom, I would suggest it rather than the Duplex. The reason is that in Duplex you will need a large amount to improve it since Duplex is boxed type- no ceiling and no partition. You may need to use a big percent of your savings or a loan in order to improve it.

*not included are Fire Insurance, Mortgage Redemption Insurance and PAGIBIG contribution withdrawable for Retirement.

When I visited my family in Bacolod, there I came to know about East Homes through my agent, and now my property manager. For 5 long years now, I am glad and happy to be serving fellow Filipinos so they too as well can avail a dream investment and be good stewards of provision.
  4. In my day time schedules, you will see me either developing websites for my clients; write blogs about finance, real estate, passive income; I am also blogging about Bacolod City and other travel destinations in Negros.

Modified Duplex House Design – East Homes

The Duplex unit of East Homes at turn over, only includes the facade, walls, roof, tiled CR and tiled kitchen sink. It is box type inside at turn over. It is the client who will be responsible in renovating the partitions, the ceiling and the gates of the Duplex House and Lot.

I made this post so my clients can have the idea of how a Duplex can look at renovation. I also have contacts with some construction and materials providers just in case you need one.
