TACLOBAN CITY -- The first Camella Homes subdivision here is almost complete, with the first batch of house-and-lot units to be turned over to owners in the third quarter.
About 80% of the initial 400 units have been sold out, said Camella Leyte marketing staff Mae Joy P. Serevilla. About three-fourths of the buyers are overseas Filipino workers or their relatives.
The buyers came from Leyte as well as from other parts of Eastern Visayas, she said.
“People from all parts of the region are buying Camella because of our strategic location, well-planned houses and themed community,” Ms. Serevilla said.
Camella Leyte general manager Geraldine S. Gascon said they were surprised at the turnout for the project.
“It’s an indication that we are a trusted brand,” she said.
Amenities in the subdivision include a clubhouse, a swimming pool, basketball court, children’s playground, and landscaped parks and gardens.
This is the first subdivision built by a Manila-based developer near Tacloban, the regional capital of Eastern Visayas. -- Sarwell Q. Meniano
