When buying a memorial lot, one needs to research and consider various factors before making a final decision. We have listed here the tips when buying a memorial lot.
Location. Choose a location that holds emotional significance to the deceased or the family, such as a cemetery that has family members buried or a place that holds special memories. Also, consider the proximity to the family’s residence as it will make it easier for the family to visit the memorial lot at any time. Celestial Meadows Developers Corporation, for one, has five memorial gardens all over Cebu. There’s one in Moalboal, Toledo City, Naga City, Minglanilla and Compostela.
The type of memorialization that will be erected on the lot. Is it a traditional grave or a cremation niche? Will a headstone or monument be installed, and if so, what are the size limitations enforced by the cemetery? Ensure that the cemetery’s rules and regulations regarding memorialization align with the family’s personal preferences and beliefs. Estimate the grave’s size and space required for any floral arrangements, benches or chairs, markers, or decorative elements.
The credibility of the developer. When buying a property like a memorial lot, always check the developer’s credibility. Always choose those who have been in the business for several years such as Celestial Meadows.
Value for money. There are several lots that offer affordability and other perks. These may be good, but think long-term. Apart from the pricing also consider the services, what you will be getting in the long term.
After-sales care. Always choose a memorial lot developer that has a good track record for its customer services. Celestial Meadows has been known for its caring and approachable business attitude for over two decades.
Buying a memorial lot is a critical decision that should be made after careful cultivation and guidance. One should research the grounds and regulations surrounding the cemetery and memorialize the deceased in a manner that aligns with their personality and cognitive ancestry. Moreover, the family should keep in mind those who will be visiting and maintain the purchased lot’s upkeep. As a final advice, consult with family members, religious leaders, or funeral directors to help make informed decisions based on personal, emotional, and spiritual needs.
