How to Affordably Search for an Apartment


Affordable apartment? Finding the ideal affordable apartment is never the easiest task. Yet it’s certainly possible to discover the right living space to meet our needs and still fit within our monthly budget.

Some of you have probably spent hours on end looking for places to live in top cities in the US like New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Las Vegas, and maybe you’ve come across UMoveFree in Dallas.

Or better yet, maybe you’re relocating to another country in Asia like Japan, China, the Philippines, Thailand, South Korea, or Singapore. If Europe is your destination of choice, you might want to live in Greece, Iceland, Italy, Spain, or France. No matter what, just know that it is more than possible to find an affordable place to live in any one of these amazing locations if you have the right guidance.


To help make your dreams a reality, we’ll share our best tips for finding an apartment you can afford. Please use this information as a valuable guide.

Tip #1: Understand Additional Hidden Fees When Looking for Apartments

Every apartment is going to be different. Some places are going to charge additional money if you have pets. Other apartment buildings are going to charge more if you need to get a parking space. Still others will ask for extra money for a number of other reasons.
As an example, if you intend to move to Orlando you may have to pay an additional $10-$15 per month on average for each one of your pets. This doesn’t seem too outrageous on the surface, but it is additional money that might have to come out of your pocket. On the other hand, apartments in San Diego could easily charge an additional $50 or more per pet, which could really turn into a big additional expense over the long run.
What about parking? Does the apartment complex charge an additional fee to get a parking space? How much does it cost? In some situations, you could very well end up spending an additional $100 a month or more for a space. A hundred dollars seems to be the minimum in a big city like Seattle.
As a reminder, please keep additional fees in mind when searching for a new place. They are added expenses that make certain apartments much less affordable.


Tip #2: Do You Really Need Every Amenity?

We all want to live in an amazing luxury apartment. Unfortunately, some of us just aren’t able to afford the biggest and best amenities available in some of the top luxury apartments. So think about the amenities that are most important to you and choose your next apartment wisely based on this information.
As an example, do you absolutely have to have a laundry unit in your apartment? Or is an on-site laundry room sufficient enough? Does the complex have to have a weight room, a dog park, and other luxurious amenities? Or can you live without them?
Some people can easily afford the best that life has to offer. But most others need to pick and choose their luxuries. So find an apartment with the luxuries you absolutely cannot live without and forgo other more expensive places when necessary.


Tip #3: Negotiate with Your Potential Landlord
Believe it or not, it might be possible to negotiate a lower price with your potential landlord. Maybe the apartment isn’t in perfect shape and you’ll have to do some work to fix it up. You could ask the landlord to charge less rent since you’re going to be sinking money into the apartment to make it look nice again. eGetinnz can definitely help you out just message m.me/eGetinnz


In Conclusion…

tumblr_mmmolmnMiy1qbyo2do5_1280

White sand beach? Crystal clear waters? Great nightlife?

There are at least a dozen different things one can do in Puerto Galera, or Gale, as the locals call their beautiful paradise of a home. From pitching tents, lighting bonfires, playing beach volleyball & Frisbees, watching the sunset, gazing at the stars, climbing cliffs, driving bikes around the area, the list could go on when discovering Oriental Mindoro’s Gale.

However, the water is still the main attraction of Gale, Crystal clear water shimmering under the sun. Puerto Galera’s landscape is very ideal for swimming, sailing, surfing, snorkeling, and scuba diving. In fact, there is no need to ride a boat to a diving site. Within a kilometer from the coast, schools of Moorish idols are already thriving in the shallow reefs of Gale.

  1. Where is Puerto Galera situated?

Gale is located on the northern shore of the island of Mindoro, 130km south of Manila, and 14 nautical miles away from Batangas Pier. You can reach Gale by land transport to Batangas pier and then by sea ferry to the paradise.

 

  1. How long is the travel time?

From Metro Manila to Batangas pier usually takes two to three hours depending on the traffic flow. The fastest route is by Skyway, South Luzon Expressway, then Calabarzon highway all the way to Batangas pier. Lastly, the ferry boat ride takes one hour to one and a half.

 

  1. How much does public transportation cost?

Gale is close in proximity to Manila, making it the cheap alternative of Boracay. A four-hour bus ride and ferry travel worth less than 500php (one-way), one way to get to White Beach is by taking a bus with a signage of “Batangas Pier via Calabarzon” near the LRT Gil Puyat station in Pasay City. The fare for an aircon bus is less than 200php and it will take you to Batangas Pier, where you should alight and would find Puerto Galera bound ferries. Pick a ferry that could take you directly to White Beach with a 250pho fare.

 

  1. What time does the ferry leave for Puerto Galera?

The first ferry trip to Puerto Galera departs at around 7:30 AM. Thereafter, a ferry leaves every hour until 5:00 PM which is normally the last trip to Puerto Galera.

 

  1. Where should I stay, Sabang or White Beach?

Sabang and White Beach are the flagships of Puerto Galera to par with nearby island’s beaches. Although there is this understatement that tourists prefer Sabang beach while locals go to White Beach. Perhaps the reason behind is that Sabang is swarmed by a number of high-class resorts, offering best dive education in the country, and dive sites are literally a stone’s throw away. Nightlife in Sabang is also different from White’s, somehow it is akin to the old Ermita, the former red light district of Metro Manila.

One comparison is that Sabang Beach is for the young and adventurous, meanwhile, White Beach is for families, for the carefree individuals who enjoy casual activities under the sun.

White Beach (Brgy San Isidro) is the most popular of Puerto Galera’s 32 beaches, especially among Filipino tourists. Come summer, from March to May. The beaches are filled with people, relaxing, walking to and fro, sunbathing, playing volleyball, riding jet skis and banana boats. At dawn, people sit at the beach to witness one of the best sunsets in the country. At night, more people come out to enjoy meals at beachfront restaurants. There are several open-air bars with drag queen dancers and serving Puerto Galera’s trademark concoction, “Mindoro Sling”. There are also many tattoo shops and souvenir shops along White Beach.

 

  1. How do I find places to stay at in Puerto Galera?

Perhaps one of the reservations of many travel bugs is about accommodations, but rest assured eGetinnz has everyone’s back, providing flexible options for travelers. eGetexperience Puerto Galera today and let us help you leap around the world.

If you spot a long queue outside the bar, you are in the right place. People flock by the entrance of this place each night. Cocomangas is known for challenging both locals and tourist with its Still Standing After 15 drinking tournament. The bar urges customers to show how strong their tolerance to alcohol is, chug down 15 different and assorted shots and manage to still be on your feet. Sounds tough? Sounds easy? You decide. Millennials from Taft cannot even walk back to their condos after a few bottles of beer and gin how much more 15 different spirits from the heart of Boracay? Those who succeed get a point for their country in the scoreboard, a freebie, and their name immortalized on a bronze plaque at Cocomangas’ wall of fame if they manage to stand and not throw up after. Philippines still rules, followed by Taiwan, then Korea in the last place. Asians rock.

Saving the waters, save Boracay

Boracay has been lauded as a cesspool by President Rodrigo Duterte and local executives plead for the salvation of the beautiful paradise of an island. The president has also threatened to declare a ‘state of calamity’ over the growing water pollution turned to sewage problem in Boracay.saveboracay1.jpg

The island is part of the rapid urbanization development that took place in the country in the early 2000s, 47% of the bodies of water in the country are in still good condition, 40% is fair quality, and 13% considered being bad quality. However, the island is a tremendous facet of tourism for the country, making a revenue of over 2 million pesos in the year 2017 alone. Shutting down the place for months will sure cause a ripple effect towards the industry.

Water pollution is largely caused by hazardous wastes and toxic materials such as those from oil refineries, oil tankers, construction wastes, improper disposal of chemical wastes, sewage leaks, and agricultural runoffs as a few examples.

In the context of the Boracay crisis however, water pollution in the island is mainly caused by human activities and natural resources combined. This type of water pollution is called a non-point source pollution that can occur from large residential areas with poor lawn quality from sewage leaks and other type of contaminant. Hotels and bars alike are swarming the island and these properties can be of a paramount contributor to the degrading waters of the island. Effects of this gradual deterioration are toxic rain, sickness and diseases from the water, and eventually the degradation of land and water.

What the government can do

Since the government led by Gina Lopez has rallied great amount of effort to save and preserve the nature, first the Filipinos need to be made aware of the health and economic repercussions of water pollution. Awareness if the first key. Stakeholders across all sectors also need to understandingly cooperate in order to prioritize the right actions to save the quality of water. Wastewater treatment should be paid attention to, also the implementation of the laws (Clean Water Act of 2004) regarding the contribution to wastewater.

 

How everybody can help

In simple ways, everybody can make, together it would create an impact.

  1. Keep your car well maintained and have it regularly serviced to avoid and oil leakage.
  2. Reduce, recycle, reuse any materials you have purchased. Plastics the most harmful waste can always be reused in whichever way that you see fit.
  3. Disposal of non-recyclable waste should be given proper and utmost attention. Do not throw in carelessly anywhere that could lead it to any body of water.
  4. Properly dispose of toxic chemicals instead of dropping them down the drain. The internet can always be of an assistance as to how to dispose any toxic chemicals in your house.
  5. Have your septic tanks regularly taken care of as well, this can later on cause a sewage problem.
  6. Lastly, conserve water. Other countries are not so lucky as the Philippines to be abundant in fresh and seawater.

 

Mount Isarog

It is not Mayon Volcano that is in the province of Camarines Sur, it is actually Mount Isarog.

Only a few people outside the province know the mountain, the highlight always goes to the perfect coned shape volcano in the opposite side of the region. The very reason why Isarog is a very well preserved natural habitat, nobody gives the mountain that much of attention. Hikers perhaps are magnetized by the giant, more than 2,000m above sea level, it is the highest peak in the whole Bicol Region. It is so vast that it stretches from Naga City to the town of Goa, Camarines Sur which is more than 20km away from the capital city.

The mountain has a wide opening crater but its last eruption was dated back in 1915-1916. It is called Vulcan de Agua by locals. Some stories say it is because it is not molten rock which is inside the mountain but water, a lot feared the story that once the mountain decides to wake up from its slumber and explodes that whole lot of Camarines Sur will be wiped out from the map. However, science likes to debate as always, claiming that it is rather impossible for one landform to contain water from within and cleared the myth behind the ‘Water Volcano’. Isarog is dubbed as Vulcan de Agua because of its lush rainforest and countless waterfalls of which only three are known: Malabsay & Nabuntalan falls, in Naga and Consocep falls in the town of Tigaon.

Isarog also harbors a myriad of species in its forests: the Isarog Shrew Mouse, the Isarpg Stripes Shrew Mouse, Isarog Shrew Rat, and Isolated Forest Frog. There are also 143 species of birds. While the mammals inhabiting the forest among many are the Philippine deer, monkeys, bats, wildcats, and wild pigs. The best treat of nature is the giant Rafflesia can also be found in Isarog.

Let us talk about views. People climb for the breathtaking views. Being the grandfather of all mountains in the region, stand atop the Isarog and you will get the perfect sight of the valley. Yes, this part of Bicol is a valley, mountains face across far from each other and the plain in the middle became the center of civilization. Mayon volcano can be seen from Camarines Sur to Albay, also Mount Iriga as well. From Naga city, the mountain stand in the east, it casts a dark but alluring shadow to the city that gets the touch of the sun a little too late in the morning. From the other side of the province however, say in the town of Tigaon and Goa, Camarines Sur, the mountain shines like a marble. The sunrays illuminate the rocks, the forest and even the Consocep falls (whose waters are dauntingly cold, you can stock up beers and sodas on its waters) is visible as a streak of white down the mountain because of the sun. Isarog wake up like a princess with the sun but when it rains it can sometimes hide in the rain fog.

Isarog Sky Garden

The easiest trail to conquer the sleeping giant is located at Naga City, it can take from 8 hours to 14 hours on a good day. There is also a trail in Goa, Camarines Sur that leads directly to the open mouth of Isarog. Trekkers take this long trail that can last up to four days because they get to hike on the very rim of the crater to the top. A few unknown trails can lead to the peak as well, adventurous local youngsters climb the mountain on their own desired path, making their own trail however for safety purposes only climb with the mountain guides appointed by the local government unit themselves. Camping in the forest can quite be dangerous only those who have the enough survival skills and kit are allowed to spend the night.

Consocep Falls

Tourists always think of island hopping immediately after the mention of Camarines Sur and they are referring to the Caramoan group of Islands which has been the site of several season of the reality competitive show Survivor. Camarines Sur is more than just Caramoan and the Camarines Sur Water Complex (CWC), a manmade surfing turf and sport water activities. Mount Isarog is one mountain filled with multiple adventure activities; hiking, camping, and swimming combined. All of which are hard to come by nowadays.
