Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) | Golden Haven
The transformation of the Philippines in the last few years from being an average economy to becoming one of the strongest in the world is exceptional. The Philippines is flourishing with opportunities. One of the prominent reasons behind this progress is expansion and development in the fields of business and investment sectors.
GOLDEN BRIA Holdings, Inc., is part of the Villar Group of companies, and is considered to be the third largest real estate company in terms of market capitalization valued at more than P200B. It has 2 subsidiaries, Golden Haven and Bria Homes.
Golden Haven is a real estate company specializing in the development of memorial parks. Golden Haven was established in October 1984 by the MB Villar Group of Companies headed by our Chairman, Former Senate President Manuel B. VIllar Jr. Our first project, Golden Haven Las Pinas, a 14-hectare property devoted for the southern communities of Manila, nearby cities of Paranaque, Muntinlupa, Bacoor, Pasay, Taguig, and the more accessible municipalities of Laguna.
Golden Haven now has over 30 Memorial Parks and 34 developments all across the country. We grow at an average of 3 to 4 new projects per fiscal year. The company is geared for vast expansion with the vision of having a themed memorial park in every hometown, as every Filipino dreams of retiring and enjoying life’s peaceful dusk in one’s hometown.
Golden Haven is dedicated to create a lasting memory for every investor and client alike with its various concepts in memorial park establishments. Our internationally acclaimed themed parks are designed to communicate sophistication and class, unlike no other within the industry. The parks are also fully maintained by the Golden Haven Park Management to preserve the locations’ legacies as intended when they were acquired. Our products are also one of the most valuable investments a wise Filipino may consider – values of our Memorial Lots at Golden Haven appreciate exponentially, and as long as there is a need (and there always will be), values in their commerce and trade will always grow day by day.
Golden Haven Memorial Parks offer various lots suited to the preference of our investors or purchasers alike. We have Lawn Lots (1 Lot – 2.4m x 1m in dimension), Memorial Garden (3Lots) Garden Niche (4 lots), Family Patio (8Lots) or Family Estate/Mausoleum (12 lots or 15 lots).
Memorial Lots qualify as real estate property and are deemed as investments that never go stale. They may be used for proof of good credit, as collaterals for loans, and other indications of financial stability. For the value of the land, particularly in Metro areas where we are, appreciation is realized yearly, and prices per square meter are always presumed ascending.
Example: Golden Haven Las Pinas started to offer the lawn lots at P5,000 in year 1984 but now, these boast prices upwards of P300,000 per lawn lot. Golden Haven Cebu began its offering at P25,000 in year 2003 but now, these same lots cost P243,000 per unit.
Yes. Golden Haven Memorial Park gives prime consideration to each buyer hence one is given the choice to transfer to any other park, should they prefer, usually due to value appreciation considerations. Aptly coined “Libing Anywhere”, Golden Haven understands the freedom of abode, a unique trait of Golden Haven.
Particularly now in the new normal, we have opened online payment facilities and we encourage the use of such. Otherwise, payments for our Golden Haven lots maybe done thru Bank Payments, payment centers or over-the-counter through Golden Haven Offices, although of course, online commerce is preferred.
