It is true that millenials have redefined the way we work, the way we spend our quality time and the way we buy things. But it has always been the same ultimate priorities -- to save up, have your own business, buy a car, get yourself your own home. 

My ultimate goal is to live in as many cities as I can. I mean live and not just visit. And although I have this ever moving lifestyle in my mind, I still want my own home. A place where I can go back to if ever I will be tired of discovering the world. 

What we need is a housing cost that's within the earnings bracket of millenials. In the average, most working millenials can't afford a housing plan that's more than PhP30,000 a month. That would make condos an efficient choice. But do you know that you can own your own house - not a condo - for as low as PhP5,000 a month?

Recently, we visited the Bella Vita project in Alaminos, Laguna. This is just one of the Ayala Land's low-cost, social housing projects nationwide. Others are located in General Trias in Cavite, Lipa and Lian in Batangas, Tayabas in Quezon, Porac in Pampanga, Cabanatuan in Nueva Ecija, Pililla in Rizal and San Pablo and Pila, both in Laguna. They're also building BellaVita projects in the cities of Cagayan de Oro and Iloilo. 

Making this housing project popular to millenials, specifically those in the outsourcing industry, is its flexible payment terms. Not to mention, very affordable. Its annual total could price the same as your brand new iPhone 7.

BellaVita offers three kinds of units. The smallest is the Poli Inner, land area of 36 square meters, where you can put light-materialed divisions for kitchen and bedroom. The next one is Pol End, which has a total land area of 50 square meters. The biggest is the Gemelli, or the duplex type which has a total land area of 50 square meters. It is loftable and has provisions for parking. 

I honestly felt bad for not considering low-cost housing like this during the first 5 years of my working life. I should already have my personal space now. But it's better late than never. What we, millenials, should do is to maximize housing schemes like this. That even with our predictable and oftentimes unorganized spending habits, we are reserving a portion of our hard-earned money for something we can use for the rest of our lives.
