Dreaming of a Serene Life? Here Are 7 Convincing Reasons Why You Must Consider Living in Batangas1 December 2021
While Metro Manila is home to the most prominent businesses and career opportunities, there's no denying that life in the National Capital Region is convenient yet expensive and fast-paced. But there is something in slow living that makes a serene probinsya life all worth it.
Like living in Batangas, we know it too well as a popular beach destination, especially for quick getaways because of its proximity to Manila. But aside from being home to many pristine islands, Batangas is also a good location for a permanent living if you're planning to move somewhere not quite far from the busy capital.
But why Batangas? Simple. The province has everything you need to start a new and progressive life—rich culture and history, extraordinary tourist destinations, a growing economy, and so much more. Tanauan, specifically, boasts a roster of beautiful destinations and thousands of square kilometers of land ideal for agriculture. Read on if you want to know why it's an ideal place to move in for good.

A Quick Guide to Bank Financing
Buying a house and lot may seem daunting because of the many processes you have to undergo. While it's true at some points, the payment part is not as complicated as you think it is.
If you don't know how to pay for your house and lot, here's a quick guide to help you understand how you can buy a Lumina property through bank financing.
All Lumina housing units are available via bank financing only, which is an easy way to help you acquire your very own real estate property. The good thing about bank financing is that there is no compulsory membership and regular contributions. You don't even
need to have a savings account to apply for a bank loan.
The annual interest rate on bank financing house loans for economic packages is 5.25 percent. Although Lumina Homes uses the standard interim rate of 8% for banks for income qualification. After paying the down payment and your bank housing loan is released, some banks offer as low as 5%, so you don't already have to pay their interim financing too!
You will have a maximum of 20 years payment term if you are locally employed, while OFWs have 15 years to pay. Meanwhile, a 30% net disposable income is required for both OFW and locally employed loan applicants. But if you are self-employed, you will just be required to have 25% net disposal. This means that since bank financing caters shorter payment terms, you can pay your debts faster and save more money than those paying for a more extended period.
You can borrow from PHP 450,000 to PHP 50 million loanable amount, which is also subject to qualification. Also, borrowers can loan up to 90% of the total contract price!
The loan process will not take too long as it is just around 2 to 3 weeks. Your loan can be released even if your house is not fully completed. At this rate, if you will choose bank financing for your housing loans, you can move earlier to your dream home!
For your convenience, Lumina Homes partners with notable banks in the Philippines, including:
- Banco de Oro (BDO)
- Cebuana Lhuillier Bank
- Security Bank
- China Bank Savings
