Homegrown developer Santos Land Development Corporation (SLDC) is optimistic for the year 2021 as recovery from the pandemic is on the horizon.
SLDC sales and marketing manager Estela Aguilos in a phone interview shared that they have planned out their strategies for the year to both grow the business and help their agents and buyers in this trying time.
“We recognize that all of us are facing hardships especially on our finances but we still want to be of help to those who still want to achieve their dream houses,” she said.
Aguilos said they already adjusted their paying schemes to make it more friendly to its buyers and prospective investors.
SLDC, she said, also prepared exciting incentives and rewards packages to its agents to encourage them to strive more to hit their sales quota.
“We already increase our target sales for the year, that’s always the case annually, we always set higher from the previous years. We prepared better incentives for our agents in order to recognize and give them the benefits and rewards they deserve especially to those who are really focusing on our projects,” she said.
Aguilos emphasized that their workforce is working double-time as they continue to push for the selling of Ivory Residences Condominium and Ilumina Estates II.
For its horizontal project Ilumina Estates II, there are only less than 100 more house and lot units available until the end of the year. These units are currently in different stages of completion from 30 to 90 percent.
Ilumina Estates II is a mid-cost to high-end development that offers peaceful and luxurious subdivision living. The project is situated in a 25-hectare area in Communal, Buhangin, Davao City.
In terms of land development, Aguilos said it is considered almost complete with total completion expected early next year.
Meanwhile, SLDC is also preparing for its land development permit for its Ilumina Estates III.
Another horizontal project is Laureana Grand Plains located in Libby Road Puan, Davao City.
“We expect to secure its license to sell first or second quarter of this year while the land development is already ongoing,” Auilos said.
She added that they are also currently planning another two subdivision projects in Malagamot, Panacan. But details of these projects are yet to be finalized.
For its vertical project, The Ivory Residences, she said SLDC is confident to complete their first high-rise development within 2021.
It is currently fast-tracking its interior and Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, and (Fire) Suppression (MEPS) engineering.
The Ivory Residences, as described, is an 18-story tower with 328 units of various sizes and is capable of housing approximately 120 parking units spread out over three floors. It was launched in 2017 and is located on JP Laurel Avenue, Bajada, Davao City.
“We are hoping for a better year in 2021. But whatever will happen, we make sure that we are prepared so as we continue our commitment to provide quality homes and spaces to all our clients especially in Mindanao,” she underscored. (ASP)
