When is the turnover date of Grand Soho Makati?
 
The estimated turnover date of Grand Soho Makati is December 2009.
 

Why should I buy now when the turnover date is still 2009?

GSM is on its pre-selling stage. It means Century Properties is selling the property during its construction period. This means huge savings for the clients. Buying a property at its pre-selling stage is more affordable compared to a finished project.
 
That is why we encourage you to invest now while the prices are still low. By the time your unit is finished, you will be assured of its value appreciation.
 
Century usually increases its prices every 1- 2 months.
