#LiveFreePH Freedom Tour: Davao celebrates Financial Freedom

Last January 24 to 30, Davaoenos were treated to educational booths, exciting promos, and a free concert featuring Sun Life father-son ambassadors Piolo and Inigo Pascual.

Beginning the journey.

A string of activities guided participants to begin their own #LiveFreePH journey. In a bold move, they declared their vision of financial freedom with the “Live Free Freedom Wall.” Then they looked at their current situation, shared their outlook about the future, and pledged support to a community in need through BLISS or “Brighter Life Index: Social Sentiment.” And by joining the “Sun CeleBright” promo, they won free trips to their chosen destinations!
But what made the #LiveFreePH Tour brighter were the Sun Life advisors ready to help those who want to jumpstart their financial freedom journey. Some were so inspired that they chose to become financial advisors themselves.

Pursuing the mission.

In front of a jubilant and captivated crowd, the “Freedom Celebration” concert headlined by Piolo and Inigo amplified the mission of financial independence for everyone. Aside from belting his signature hits, Piolo serenaded the winners of the hugely popular “Selfie with Papa P” - where longtime fans get to meet their idol and take home a photo souvenir. Inigo also showed off his dance moves and energized the night with today's popular hits.
“We want Filipinos to believe that a brighter future is possible. We want them to be inspired to take on their own path towards financial freedom. And that they can start this meaningful journey with the help of our financial advisors,” said Sun Life Chief Marketing Officer Mylene Lopa. The #LiveFreePH Freedom Tour kicked off last year with stops in Pampanga and Iloilo.

Add Significant Equity to the House With This Home Improvement Projects

A lot of homeowners will limit their budget to approximately $5000 for any type of big remodeling project around the house. For homeowner who loves to do DIY (Do It Yourself) projects to significantly improve the interior of your home, many of the projects are small enough that will not break the bank or overextend the budget, but will provide additional equity to the home, once the project has been completed.

Here are some of the things that can you do to enhance the beauty of your home and improve its functionality.

1. Installing a Wood Fence
For less than $5000, it is easy to add a wood fence around the exterior of the property. This type of fence can add significant value to the home’s existing landscaping. They can also provide backyard privacy, or be used as a containment for dogs. In addition, installing a wood fence as a home improvement project adds an additional layer of security to the home.
Installing a wood fence can easily fit into most homeowner’s budget. They can be installed as a small picket fence, or paneling that has been pre-assembled, and only requires the upright post and some heavy lifting.

2. Replacing the Heat Pump
Heat pump air conditioning systems are only designed to last between 10 and 12 years, and that is with proper maintenance every year. As the home begins to age, many homeowners are faced with the idea that their home improvement project will be nothing more than replacing the existing heat pump air conditioning system. For less than $5000, a professional air conditioning company can replace the interior air handler, and the exterior condenser, and have the home heated and cooled properly for decades to come.
A newly installed heat pump air conditioning system is more cost-effective because it can make the home more energy-efficient. It can significantly reduce the amount of energy that is consumed just maintaining the heat or cooling year-round.

3. Painting the Exterior of the Home
One of the most common home improvement projects for the do-it-yourselfer is painting the exterior of their home. Often times, the siding can become sun-bleached, and take on a washed out appearance. A fresh coat of paint can easily put on a fresh sheen to the exterior of the home.
High quality paint for the exterior of the home along with all the necessary supplies can typically be purchased for less than $3000, which is significantly lower than the budget. It can protect the siding of the home for decades, especially when it is applied properly. Depending on the type of siding installed on the house, whether it is fiber-cement, vinyl or stucco, a fresh coat of exterior paint can add a high level of protection.

There are significant ways to add extra value to the equity of the home. By selecting the right types of home improvement projects, any homeowner can increase the home’s value, while enhancing its appearance or functionality.
