To buy or not to buy at Carmona, Estates

I'm planning to get a house and lot in Cavite and Carmona, Estates is in the top of my list. I like their Maple House Model which is spacious and not that expensive. Would it be worth my money or not? Anyone here who have bought already the same model? I'd like to know also if the houses in CE were constructed according to design and with quality. Thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts.

  • Hi Binggo, I'd like to share this info about Carmona Estates... please allow me to do so.

    ADVANTAGE of Carmona Cavite
    A first class Municipality
    Very high Employment Rate at 98.03% (only 1.97% unemployed vs 27.2% National Level and comparable to Singapore at 1.9%)
    Most peaceful in Cavite with very low crime rate at 7.15% with crime solution efficiency of 90%
    2010 Most Business Friendly Municipality in the Philippines
    Less traffic

    ADVANTAGE of Carmona Estate
    10 min away in Alabang
    12 min away in SM-Dasmarinas (the “Alabang” of Cavite)
    (Future) access road to Paseo de Sta Rosa (The Makati of the South)
    6 min away to Binan PNR Station that can link you to Manila, Bicol and Northern provinces (soon)
    Highland and flood-free
    Cool weather (nearby Canyon Ranch claim that temperature is only 1 degree warmer than Tagaytay)
    Near Market and Town proper
    Near the new San Lazaro Racing Club & Casinos
    Near the Carmona Racing Circuit
    Near Manila Southwoods Golf & County Club

    Location
    I myself have bought an Oakwood B unit at Carmona Estates Phase 9. I've also been looking for a place in Laguna as my siblings are in Binan (near Southwoods) and Sta Rosa (near Paseo De Sta Rosa), and our family home in Alabang.

    I've also received flyers on Carmona Estates and I surfed the Net and found the place just behind Laguna Bel Air (Sta Rosa) and near Southwoods which is near Binan, Laguna.

    Aside from the things that stein has posted, its location fits my requirements.

    House Design
    Aside from the location, what I do like primarily though is Oakwood B's design; 2 storeys, 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, big balcony covering the carport, with extra open spaces in front, at the side and back, for future expansion and other purposes. Though the flyers and web info say that the floor area is 104 sqm (first and second floor plus balcony), the usable area is almost 125 sqm if the covered carport and porch are included. The house design is simple, compact, multfunctional and no space is really wasted.

    It has 3 Tanguile panel doors (front and back doors have additional dead bolt locks), and the bedroom doors are molded flush doors which make them look like panel doors, adding value to them.

    Living room, Dining Room, and Kitchen have an open concept design but each area is big enough not to restrict flow of traffic.

    The exterior color scheme is neutral, more like resort/hotel colors. Interior is painted primer white, and flooring is plain cement so that homebuyers can execute their own design and preferences.

    The house's exterior design is simple, yet it comes across like Zen inspired.

    Bathrooms are all in white. Safe color. Doors are PVC and they would last for years.

    Ground floor's ceiling height is almost 10 ft, which is quite high making the floor seem big and airy. Second floor's height is more than 7 ft. These ceilings are much higher than the houses in some high profile developers in the Binan/Sta Rosa areas, making the inside volume space of Oakwood B much larger.

    The house is almost all concrete. Wooden parts are just the panel doors, bedroom doors, kitchen counter cabinet doors, eaves vent frames. Ceilings are of fiber cement board. The house is basically fire and termite-proof.

    Partitions are all in placed. All rooms are practically ready for occupancy. The house is ready to be lived in.

    Precast Reinforced Concrete Panels
    Another thing that I like in the Oakwood B house is that the concrete portion it is about 90% poured or precast concrete making it stronger than the plastered conventional concrete hollow blocks, and columns and beams.

    The wall thickness may be thinner than conventional CHBs, but as it is poured concrete all throughout (with embedded rebars), the load is distributed, unlike in others where the columns and beams carry the load.

    Balcony and Covered Carport
    Very few villages offer houses that have a balcony as big as Oakwood B's. It is almost 25 sqm, and can easily accommodate 25 persons if there's a gathering or barbecue party there. The balcony is one of the best features of the house. It serves a lot of different purposes. If a homebuyer decides to install a roof over it (and with some design and warm lighting), it can be a nice and cozy bar in the evening for entertaining guests or for just chilling out.

    The railing with its horizontal metal bars is quite modern. But this may seem tempting for some kids to climb on. The parents should be cautious and have to install safety features.

    The carport is so big that is can be a work area when the car is not parked there. 3 outlets provide sufficient lighting even in the evenings.

    Plant Box In Lieu of a Garden
    Even if the homebuyer decides against a garden within its lot, there is still some areas between the perimeter and the curb/sidewalk for some plants to grow. It can be a plant box or a raised pocket garden.

    Village Amenities is at CE9
    Carmona Estates main amenities -- swimming pools,covered basketball court, and clubhouse -- are located at Phase 9 and near Phase 8. The area's 2 gates are also located at Phase 9.

    The Way to CE
    The village can be accessed from 3 points along Governor's Drive: via Petron, Waltermart and Checkpoint. Lots of tricycles for commuters. Though having a private transport is better. The fastest is via Petron as this is the nearest to the South Luzon Expressway.

    Schools
    There's a private grade and high school "within" the village, as it is between CE8-9 and CE1-7, where the facilities are very good. This is St Anthony's.

    There is also the Lantic Public Elementary School. Walking distance from the village. The Carmona Public Elementary and High Schools are very near Waltermart.

    Malls, Market, etc.
    Though the Carmona Waltermart is a bit small, it serves its purpose. The Carmona Public Market is near Petron. Near this is the future site of Pure Gold. The Carmona Municipal Hall is also a trike-ride away from Petron. A purified water refilling station and commercial stalls are also located beside the St Anthony School.

    Downside: Windowless Bathrooms
    As the bathrooms are placed beside the firewall, windows are impossible. A solution is for the homebuyer to install exhaust fans in both bathrooms.

    Value for Money
    All things considered, if the Oakwood B house is properly constructed, the starting price of PHP1,625,000 seems like a bargain.

    Some points to ponder if you are thinking of buying a house from ProFriends considering the current anti-homeowners policies of this developer, which were not being implemented when I got my house:

    May mga nag-email at nagPM sa akin. Kung ako daw ba ay bibili ng bahay (at lupa) sa isang developer, at ang developer ay hindi ako papayagang bisitahin ang unit ko habang ginagawa ito, para mainspeksyon ko at para malaman ko kung walang kalokohang nangyayari, itutuloy ko pa rin daw ba ang balak kong pagbili ng bahay at lupa sa developer na ito?

    Isa lang naman ang isasagot ko dyan, HINDI.

    Kapag namimili nga ako sa palengke ay kinikilatis ko pang mabuti kung sariwa talaga ang mga gulay, isda at karne. Sa grocery naman ay particular ako sa expiration and best before dates. Sa department stores naman, kapag damit, ichicheck ko pa ang stitches, kung may butas, at kung maayos kapag naisuot na sa fitting room.

    Mas lalo sa bahay. Long term and big investment yan. Dugo at pawis ang puhunan dyan. Dapat talaga ay ang homebuyer mismo ang nakakakita kung papano at kung tama ba talaga ang paggawa sa bahay nya. Regular na gawain na kasi nang maraming contractors ng mga subdivision developers (na pinababayaan lang ng developers) ang pandaraya sa paggawa at paggamit ng substandard materials.

    The best ammunition that one could have in dealing with ProFriends is being aware of what the REAL situations are, both positive and negative, and how he/she acts on it. One should not just think positive and ignore the negatives. One should not just wait and let others lead and then just follow them. He/She should act and do something about it. Focus on overcoming these negatives by taking action. The GV (Good Vibes) Attitude is perfectly alright as long as the results are in your favor. There should be no room for regret.

    The saying, "What you don't know would not hurt you," would put you in a lose-lose situation when dealing with ProFriends.

    Believe me. Been there, done that. Countless of times. Think positive and Good Vibes? I had them. But I took action. I did research. I asked people and agencies. I did not just wait for others. I made sure that the outcome would always be in my favor.

    Good luck, guys.



    I posted the below message for ProFriends in their official Pinoy Exchange thread in September 2011. It was addressed to its employee Gerald Gorosin aka PEXer profriends. Gerald has been promising to answer to all my concerns including the ones below. Until now, not one has been replied to, despite numerous followups.


    Hi Gerald (profriends),

    This is another GENERAL CONCERN related to inspection, blueprints, etc.

    During the first official inspection upon the issuance of the Certificate For Inspection, the homeowner would be reminded that only the items listed in the BCR (Buyer's Contact Report) aka Punch List would be repaired and inspected on the next inspection.

    Questions:
    1. How could a homeowner know if his house was constructed according to the plans and blueprints when the homeowner would have no time to study the blueprints as these would be released upon issuance of the first CFI, or during the actual inspection?

    2. How could a homeowner know if the hidden portions of the house (e.g. hanger rods, PCP connectors, zocallo walls and footings, etc) were done properly when these are no longer visible when the house was already deemed for inspection?

    3. How could a homeowner do all the inspection when he would be told that the inspection should be done in only 1 hour? Just checking the windows (for steel casement windows) for cracked/missing putty, rust, broken glass, improper paint job, ease of opening/closing all windows, possible leaks) would take at least 15 minutes. And in my case 2 steel portions were not even straight, which would normally not be seen by a homeowner in a hurry inspecting his unit in just 1 hour.

    Fortunately for me, I've done several personal pre-inspections already and was already armed with pictures and list that even if my BCR consisted of almost 40 items, the 1 hour was enough. And I am thankful to Head Engr Jovits, Sr Engr Daryl, Move In Engr Vangie, CRG Supervisor Ira (who were all with me during my first official inspection) and Contractor Jimenez fro prioritizing my unit's repair, that I was able to accept it after 2 weeks during the second inspection.

    Gerald, I know you've been trying your best to assist us and attend to our concerns, and we appreciate this. However, I don't think you are a PFI unit homeowner. But try to put yourself in our shoes. Empathize with us. Sympathize with us. Do you think the above 3 items are highly possible in just a 1-hour inspection?

    Also, I have been asking this for so long, can you give us the rationale why the blueprints should be released only upon full downpayment and upon issuance of the CFI? Before I reserved my unit on December 2011. I was told that blueprints were being released upon reservation or a few months in paying the downpayment. I don't see any relevance or benefit to the homebuyer of this sudden change in the blueprint release policy. If Property Company of Friends is not hiding something with regards to unit construction, then I don't see any reason why the blueprints should not be given to the homebuyers in advance. If a homebuyer backs out of the purchase, PFI could just easily charge the cost of this blueprint to this homebuyer. On the same line of reasoning, I don't see any reason why a homebuyer would not be allowed to visit and inspect his house during construction if PFI is not hiding something. If the issue is safety, PFI should just ask the homebuyer to sign a waiver. Other companies, even schools and hospitals have been doing that. This should not really be an issue.

    Your usual prompt and reliable response would be highly appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Neo
