I've never written anything close to 3,000 words in my entire life, so when Good Housekeeping's Maita de Jesus asked me if I can produce this story for them, I was shit scared. I think I even declined the first time (haha!) but dear Maita told me to give it my best shot.
So here you go, my first byline for a huge feature, shared with no other than the greatest Real Estate Broker in town, Mitor Alipio. Hee. We hope this can handbook can help you make the right decisions when you're ready to purchase your very first dream home.
