From property seekers to real estate professionals, Lamudiâ€™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
- Futura Homes by Filinvest
- Grand Monaco

- Megaworld Prime RFO
- Pag-IBIG Fund
- PA Properties
- Phinma Properties
- Politan- Agpasa Engineering and Architectural Design
- RCD Land
- UnionBank Credit Cards
- United 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 â€œUnlock Your Dream Homeâ€ 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 didnâ€™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 doesnâ€™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 projects.
If youâ€™re interested in applying for Pag-IBIG Fundâ€™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. Itâ€™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 arenâ€™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.
Lamudi now 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, donâ€™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 itâ€™s an opportunity for those who missed this Julyâ€™s Affordable Housing Fair to attend.
