property seekers to real estate professionals, Lamudi’s Affordable Housing Fair
was a roaring success. It united all groups from the real estate industry to an
event filled with knowledge and opportunity for all.
After a successful event at Trinoma, Lamudi
continued its Housing Fair series and brought it to Glorietta with a two-day
Affordable Housing Fair, from July 20 to 21, 2019.
The event, now in its third year, was
supported by several exhibitors, showcasing their offers and properties. The
exhibitors were the following:
- Aspire by Filinvest
- Ayala Residential Group
- Calmar Land Development Corporation
- Camella Homes
- CDC Holdings, Inc.
- Empire East
- Food Panda
Homes by Filinvest
Agpasa Engineering and Architectural Design
Coconut Planters Bank
The emphasis of the event was getting
affordable housing for property seekers, hence the title of the fair, which is the
Affordable Housing Fair. Affordability
in the real estate industry is what a lot of keynote speakers and
exhibitors focused on in the event.
The fair had all sorts of seminars relevant
to the theme presented by esteemed speakers from a variety of places. Aside
from workshops, there were plenty of booths, training, as well as an escape room
called “Unlock Your Dream Home” for attendees to try.
Home-Buying Seminar for Aspiring New Homeowners
Lamudi Affordable Housing Fair held a free
home-buying seminar for aspiring new homeowners. The lesson covers all the
basics that they need to know before or during the home-buying process.
This talk was one that aspiring homeowners
didn’t want to miss.
On that note, Pag-IBIG Fund representatives
were also present to give a talk on their End-User Housing or Financing Program,
which is useful for new or aspiring homeowners.
Pag-IBIG Fund End-User Housing Program Talk
The End-User Home Financing Program by
Pag-IBIG Fund aims to help aspiring homeowners finance their new home. The loan
can reach up to about six million Philippines Peso, depending on a couple of
factors like desired loan amount, actual need, loan entitlement, and more.
The Financing Program doesn’t only cover
new homeowners. There are plenty of other eligible loan purposes that the
financing program can help interested loan applicants. For example, you can use
it to refinance an existing house loan or for financing home improvement
If you’re interested in applying for Pag-IBIG Fund’s financing program, then you can go to their website and log on to get an appointment set for you.
Given the fact that it is an Affordable Housing Fair, there were also
auctions held in the fair that put up properties in foreclosure
for bidding. It’s a cost-effective way of purchasing a property. The
exhibitors listed above showed their offers to interested buyers, so there were
plenty of options and choices available.
Additionally, property seekers had plenty
of freebies as well as discounts on properties on the Affordable Housing Fair.
Networking Venue for Real Estate Professionals
Buyers aren’t the only ones who found a
good time with the Lamudi Housing Fair. Real estate professionals had the
opportunity to see industry leaders in the fair. They also received free
lessons on online marketing with the use of Lamudi.
With the help of the sponsors, Lamudi was able to launch
a successful Housing Fair and pull off these activities listed above. For the
July 20-21 Affordable Housing Fair, Subdivision & Housing Developers
Association, Inc. (SHDA) served as the official event sponsor.
Aside from that, the SM Development
Corporation served as the Premium Sponsor of the event. Major Sponsors of the
Housing fair were Federal Land and Lancaster New City by ProFriends. Minor
sponsors for the event were Aboitiz Land, BPI Family Housing Loan, DMCI Homes,
and Mandaue Foam.
Of course, the help of the media partners
which is Business Mirror, Business World, Malaya Business Insight, The
Philippine Star, and the Philippine Daily Inquirer Property made it easy to
spread the word which also contributed to the success of the event.
completes a third year of organizing a housing fair that brought real estate
enthusiasts, both buyers, and sellers, together. Lamudi continues to look
forward to bridging these two groups together for the rest of the year with the
continuation of the Affordable Housing Fair series.
For those who
missed the Glorietta housing fair, don’t worry. There are still more to come
with a Housing Fair in SM Cebu on September 21-22. Before the year
ends, Lamudi will be organizing another Housing Fair in SM Mall of Asia in
December, so it’s an opportunity for those who missed this July’s Affordable
