By now, potential buyers of houses and condominiums are already experiencing "overfatigue" after visiting countless model units before purchasing a property. The scenario that usually follows is the client holding on to his dear unit, barren and without any trace of the visual luxury.

Megaworld Corporation is hoping to turn all tables around though, as it integrates free interior design services for every purchase of a "Ready for Occupancy (RFO)" unit through its newly-launched property division, the Prime Properties Investment Group (PPG).


Megaworld has changed the RFO buyers. At present clients may choose from, Zen, Contemporary and Modern Victorian designs for their units.

"We use simple lines, simle decors anf monochromatic colors. We want to showcase fluidity in order to grasp the silence within," said Frenando Buenavista, Megaworld PPG Senior Design Head.

"We base our designs on their personality lifestyle, color and mood preferences," he added.

Aside from the free interior design services, clients may also request the group to select, negotiate and purchase their preferred furniture, fixtures and appliances that suit their needs and budget.

Megaworld PPG may also assist RFO nit owners who want o leave or re-sell their properties. It will also ensure the safekeeping and maintenance of he units in the absence of the unit owners.

To know more about Megaworld's RFO offerings, visit the "Live the Prime Life" gallery at Eastwood Mall Atrium today until tomorrow and avail of special discounts and freebies for every RFO unit purchased.

"Now is the best time to invest in RFOs," declares Donna Racho, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Megaworld Prime Properties Investment Group.

Citing her unforgettable experience during Typhoon Ondoy in September 2009, Racho believes it is wise to get a place that gives you immediate security and safety. "It's no longer an aspiration but a necessity to people like me. Because of what I've experienced, I always envision myself in the shoes of the buyer. It is my fulfillment to give them their dream home which is not just a good investment but a practical investment," she says.

Now that she heads the group that exclusively handles the completed projects of Megaworld, Racho advocates the practicality of investing in RFO's. To date, her group sells pre-selected RFO units in Eastwood Parkview and One Central Park in Eastwood City; Stamford Residences and 115 Upper McKinley in McKinley Hill; The Bellagio III and Forbeswood Parklane in Forbestown, Bonifacioi Global City; Sarasota at The Residential Resort in Newport City, Greenhills Heights in San Juan; El Jardin del Presidente II in Quezon City.

"Having an RFO unit provide you an immediate advantage of property ownership. If you need loans or even if you apply for visas, you can use the property as a proof of you financial standing," she explains.

She adds that unlike other properties in the real estate market, you get to move in to RFO units two to three months after purchase. This greatly helps buyers who want to rent out the units in order to earn monthly rental income immediately. After several years, the unit's value appreciated as most of Megaworld properties are located in high-end townships and prime areas.

"It's always the location that you should consider when buying a property. This is one thing that Meagworld is very known about. We just don't build properties in any areas. We want our development to be in prime locations all the time," she explains.

For Megaworld RFOs, buyers can make a downpayment for as low as 10% at flexible payment terms. Most banks have partnered with Megaworld PPG to offer the competitive interest rates.
