You have been seriously contemplating on buying a house and lot for sale in Bacolod City and have been religiously touring new and existing homes during weekends. Despite this, however, you still cannot seem to settle on what you want. Under this circumstance, it is easy to feel frustrated and discouraged, thinking that maybe you might just buy a vacant lot in one of the suburban areas in Bacolod, like Oasis Subdivision in Mansilingan, and have somebody build your dream house. Would that be a losing proposition? Probably not.
Many of the houses and lots in Bacolod City were designed based on the specifications and desires of the architects, engineers and officials of a particular realty company. While such houses are truly beautiful to behold, you must not forget one important principle that “beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder.” This means that what could be truly beautiful and unique to some may become distasteful and hideous to others. Such observation does not mean that pre-built houses on subdivisions in Bacolod City are not beautiful. Almost all of them are. The only problem is that people have distinct and unique preferences, and sometimes, a few of the traits they are looking for may not be present in a ready-made home.
Another downside about pre-built houses is that their features, such as where the doors should be facing, or how many windows should there be, or how many steps its staircase should have, may not at all fit with what’s on your mind. Remember, there are still a lot of superstitious homesteaders who prefer to have their main doors and windows facing the east side to face the sunrise, or ensuring that their staircase does not total to the number 13. In fact, this is perhaps the reason why most suburban dwellings in Bacolod City, Oasis Subdivision included, experience brisk sales on rows of houses facing the east side compared to those facing the west side. Most developers usually contend with this fact, though it does not mean all the properties they develop are designed to have houses facing east.
With this knowledge, modern real estate developers now try to design their subdivision lots in such a way that it would please both the superstitious and non-superstitious alike. While many of them still have pre-built houses intended for sale to interested buyers, they also maintain several dozens of vacant lots for those who might want to build their houses based on their own specifications.
So what is your option?
Obviously, the only remaining option is to purchase a lot for sale in Bacolod and engage an architect and engineer to build it for you. While such proposition may cost you a bit, you can be sure that the house being built will be according to what you have envisioned and desired. It’s no use buying yourself a house and lot in Bacolod City and later decide to sell it because it’s not what you wanted, right? While you might gain profit on your sale, the time you spent moving into the house and perhaps remodeling it a bit will all go down the drain.
This is why if you have been spending a lot of time looking to purchase a house and lot for sale in Bacolod City, perhaps it’s now time to consider buying just the lot and building your preferred house on it. Visit any of the suburban areas in Bacolod City, such as the Oasis Subdivision in Barangay Mansilingan. You might find a vacant lot there that fits perfectly with what you have in mind. Then you can hire yourself an engineer and architect to build your dream house on that lot. Though it might cost a bit at the outset, you might find it cheaper and wiser in the long run.
