During the house-hunting process, the first step for many condo buyers is to take a our of the model units. When they like what they see, the paperwork is processed, and when the unit is ready for occupancy, the new homeowners are left wondering how to best recreate the full use of space and charming ambiance that had made them fall in lobe with the model unit. Their own finished unit happens to be stripped of all the frills that had showcased the work of a professional interior designer. What they have is a bare unit with a kitchen sink, shower and the electrical sockets.

This is actually a welcome challenge for many new homeowners who like to decorate. Others, however, may opt to seek expert from designers and decorators. But those who cannot wait to move in can how have the exact same look of the model unit they had fallen in love with.

A new service by Megaworld Corporation offers just that opportunity. It's new Prime Properties Investment Group (PPG) is a marketing division that exclusively handles the are ready-for-occupnacy (RFO). This specifically targets that segment of the market that prefers to buy finished homes rather that waiting to move into pre-selling projects. Megaworld PPG vice president for sales and marketing Donna Racho says the division will be providing its own brand of unparalleled after-sales services to Megaworld unit owners.

With this innovate move, Megaworld homeowners of choice cut properties can avail of the services of the design team, which is headed by interior designer Fernando Buenavista. This team will work with the homeowners in personalizing his new home. The resident has three themes to choose from- Zen, Contemporary, and Modern Victorian.

"The Zen style has an Asian feel, with simple colors." says Buenavista "Contemporary has its metallic touches and minimalist appeal, it is something that never goes out of style. The Modern Victorian is preferred by the higher age bracket for its very classic design and is perfect for units that have bigger cuts. We talk to the owners about their taste and preferred style, and their within the budget they give us."

After the client chooses a theme, the design team works on the schematics and rendition. The team can even help the buyer shop for furniture and fixtures. "It also works to their advantage, because we can get good deals from our suppliers,: he says, pointing in particular to a gorgeous metallic-theme tile found in one of the finished RFO unit kitchens in Eastwood, Libis. "Many people who looked at this unit thought it was an expensive imported brand, when actually, it is from one of our suppliers. They offer these tiles to us at more thank half the price.

A homeowners also has another option: he can buy the entire model unit he liked: lock, stock, and barrel. "They get the rugs, the lightning fixtures, the framed artwork, everything! All they need to bring is their clothes," Buenavista says. In fact, he adds that the Contemporary unit that comes with the metallic-tilled kitchen was already snapped up by a buyer who is set to move in sometime soon.

Some of the available RFO units are located at Eastwood Parkview and One Central Park in Eastwood City Libis; Stamford Residences, 115 Upper McKinley in McKinley Hill, The Bellagio III, and Forbeswood Parkane at the Bonifacio Global City; The Residential Resorts in Newport and El Jardin Del Presidente II in Quezon City.
