Construction started yesterday on our first apartment in Minglanilla. I have heard a lot of people say Minglanilla is too far from the city compared to Li-Loan which is in the North but I think its actually closer than Li-loan in travel time due to us having the SRP on our doorstep which is a quick road into SM Mall bypassing all the traffic in Pardo and central Cebu. The northern end of Cebu seems to have had a construction explosion of properties but nobody has increased the road size to compete with the demand now needed on it. But here in the South although we have our rush hour chaos like everywhere else we do seem to get a lot less “hourly” traffic. Couple that with Gaisano Fiesta Mall a quick jeepney ride and 5 minutes from the main road heading south we can be in Naga within 10 minutes and onwards to Argao and Moalboal for beaches and diving.
Getting back to the Apartments what sort of rent should we be looking to charge? I have been looking at comparisons with local rents and “general costs” and I think P7,000 a month is a reasonable rent although the apartments are fairly compact they will be inclusive of :-
- Wi-Fi /internet.
- Water supply cold + drinking.
- 2 gas hob inc gas.
- Inclusive of Electricity.
There are also other things available as extras :-
- Vehicle hire.
- Driver+Vehicle hire.
- Fully operational net café facilities.
- Guide service.
- PC hire for the apartment for P300 a month.
- Sari-Sari store for food stocks (opening soon).
- Laundry Service.
- Grocery delivery service.
Another reason the apartments could be handy is for those of you not only visiting Cebu looking for cheap accommodation short/long stay. But also if you have a partner awaiting visa processing we can receive international transfers by remittance or bank transfers to save you on Western Union costs. On top of that we are happy to help with advice or information as always.
