Ideal home choice to welcome the ‘Dog’

Solana’s facilities allow one to have a well balanced lifestyle.

The Year of the Earth Dog is predicted to be an eventful one that, according to some astronomers and feng shui masters, would be defined by changes and new beginnings.

Early predictions have in fact stated that the year 2018 will generally be a good year so long as one kicks out the bad habits.


But will the so-called man’s best friend truly bring luck, fortune, and harmony? At the end of the day, it actually all boils down to the decisions and choices one will make.

Thus, as with anything, it is necessary to be cautious and discerning before embarking or investing on something big.


With the Year of the Earth Dog seen to turn people’s focus on real estate, agriculture and environment, it may be a good idea to study how you can benefit from investing in these industries. In real estate for instance, you must identify which among the string of developments offered on the market would perfectly suit your needs.

So as we welcome the Year of the Earth Dog, here are some of the things you might want to consider before taking the big leap to invest in your dream home.


It is necessary to thoroughly study your options and to not be immediately swayed by advertising gimmicks and various promotions. Check the track record of your chosen developer and make a checklist of the promises that the company would often cite in promoting their projects. From that list alone, you’ll see how the company has managed to live up to its claims and promises.


It is an absolute must to find a development that would meet and satisfy your desired lifestyle. Your home is your sanctuary and as such, it should allow you to live the kind of life you’ve always dreamed of.

A good developer, after all, is one that creates homes that would provide a conducive environment that would enable its residents to live a full, holistic life, create unforgettable memories, and nurture relationships.


Kid-friendly community

Kids can sometimes be the hardest to please and as such, it’s highly crucial for developers to create an environment where children can freely move about without their parents having to worry about their safety. The presence of facilities like playgrounds and study areas is thus a must as these could help develop a child’s potential.


It’s a practical move for buyers to consider developments that are located in prime areas and are accessible in many ways. Given the metro’s road conditions and horrendous traffic, it would be ideal to invest in a property that will offer you convenience and access to life’s so-called essentials. A buyer must choose a development that is strategically located and would allow him or her to go about the metro easily.


Landscape can make a whole lot of difference for a particular development. For one, an intricately designed and well thought out landscape architecture can help define the kind of environment and lifestyle residents can expect. After all, a good amount of green, open spaces mixed with just the right amount of modern amenities can help enhance and improve an individual’s well-being.

Healthy lifestyle

An active, healthy lifestyle is desired by many. But given today’s hectic and fast-paced lifestyle, it becomes almost impossible to achieve that work-life balance. Thus, it is ideal to choose a development that could help you achieve your health and fitness goals—one that offers facilities such as swimming pools, gyms, courts and jogging paths.

Meanwhile, one development that seems to tick off everything on this list would be Solana, a contemporary community being developed by Suntrust Properties Inc.

Strategically located in the bustling Natividad Lopez Street in Ermita, Manila, Suntrust Solana boasts of unmatched value as it provides access to some of Manila’s commercial hubs, institutions, historical sites, and business districts.

What could be a wise investment option in the Year of the Earth Dog, Suntrust Solana is a premier development that is seen to capture the hearts of homebuyers by providing them a worry-free living environment. The two-tower residential condominium project is set to offer unmatched comfort and convenience to future residents by incorporating in its design state-of-the-art facilities and amenities.

Suntrust Solana, which means “sunny side of the mountain”, provides a wide array of unit choices ranging from a 24 sqm studio unit to a 50 sqm three-bedroom unit.

Security and safety need not be an issue as it will be equipped with a 24-hour security, emergency back-up power and future ready units among others.

Indeed, Suntrust Solana makes for practical investment given its value proposition, high quality structure and well thought out features. Making it an even more attractive choice is the fact that Suntrust Solana would always hold a number of activities to mark certain celebrations such as in the upcoming Chinese New Year.

One with the Filipinos and Chinese in celebrating the Chinese New Year, Suntrust Solana will hold an event dubbed, “Celebrate Love in Good Fortune.”

Held in honor of its loyal customers, the Solana Grand Investors’ Night and Chinese New Year Celebration is shaping up to be a fun-filled event that is hoped to bring luck and fortune.

The said festivity will be held at the Suntrust Parkview Pool Lounge on February 16, starting 6 p.m. It will feature activities such as the lion and dragon dance and lucky guests can look forward to bringing home special prizes while feasting on a sumptuous dim sum buffet.
