Some realtors would say that houses don’t sell, locations do. Size, design or amenities matter but location is still king. A British survey revealed that a majority or 56% of home buyers prioritize location over price. This is why condo living is preferred by young professionals, couples, and growing families. Condominium developments are located at the heart of key cities, close to everything you need — workplace, malls, supermarkets, schools, hospitals and public transportation.
Infina Towers, a master-planned resort-themed community, is a new development that stands proudly along Aurora Boulevard in Quezon City. This new address is perfect for urban dwellers who want to strike the perfect balance between dynamic city lifestyle and recreation.
If you are looking for a home that would allow you mobility and easy access to everything important to you, here’s a tour of places of interest around Infina Towers.
At the heart of learning
For parents, the top priority in looking for a home is its proximity to academic institutions. You want as may options as possible. After all, there’s no compromising education.
Infina Towers is less than a kilometer away from St. Bridget High School, Asian College of Quezon City, and National College of Business and Arts. Getting to these schools would take one to three minutes from Infina. Just a little farther away is Ateneo de Manila University, Miriam College, and University of the Philippines – Diliman. If your child is going to enroll in one of these schools, he will surely save a lot of time and energy with the easy commute. Traffic is terrible in the area but since these schools are no more than five kilometers away, your children are not likely to be late in class.
Achieving work-life balance
Working parents and professionals have so much on their plate already. The least they want is to be stressed about hours lost in long commutes. Infina Towers is strategically located near major business centers in the metropolis. You can get to Ortigas or Makati within minutes. Eastwood and the Ayala Technohub are 4 to 6 kilometers away.
The workplace is one of the most important places for urban dwellers. But a lot of people cannot afford to be so far away from home and compromise the time they spend with their families. This is why owning or renting a condo appeals to modern families, it helps professionals achieve work-life balance.
Fun and bonding
Speaking of work-life balance, parents and families need to unwind, bond, and have fun. They need to have meaningful weekends. Kids need to get out and explore.
But at a time when traffic on weekends could pass for horror stories and when public transportation is not reliable and highly inconvenient, just the thought of having to get on the road would scare anyone. But living in a home near important places for family such as shopping malls would change everything. Suddenly, you are allowed to get excited about weekends and going to places of leisure where you could have a lovely time with your family. There’s Gateway, Eastwood City, and Araneta Center where you can shop, dine, play, and watch movies.
Shopping for fresh produce
There’s a renewed appreciation for healthy home-cooked meals. Eating out of a box is no longer cool. Parents, no matter how busy they are, want to make sure that they give their families the best, especially on the dining table.
Want some fresh produce? Head to Farmer’s Market in Cubao or Aurora Market. It is a good opportunity also for parents to teach their kids about healthy eating. Cooking at home is also a perfect bonding opportunity. Nothing is more satisfying that sharing a meal prepared with love.
Commuting made easy
Commuting in Metro Manila is not for the faint-hearted. You have to be ready to line up for hours to get on the train, literally jump and hop to get on a bus stopping in the middle of the highway, and transfer from one jeepney to another just to get to a destination a few kilometers away.
It would be such a relief if you at least lived near modes of public transportation and would no longer have to ride a bus to get to the train. LRT-2 Anonas Station is only 0.25 kilometers or three minutes away from Infina Towers. This would save you so much time and energy when going to work or other important places. The nearest MRT-3 station is five kilometers away and if you need to get out of town, Araneta Center Bus Terminal is roughly 12 minutes away.
Health is wealth
Health is something no one should take for granted. Families, parents, couples, and young professionals should know this. This is why being near hospitals is also very important. Infina is a kilometer away from Quirino Memorial Medical Center and World Citi Medical Center. St. Luke’s Medical Center – Quezon City is less than six kilometers away.
Young parents with babies and toddlers need to be near a pediatrician all the time. Families with elderly need their doctors near. Couples starting a family will need help of specialists. Young professionals need to get their health in check. Being at close proximity to hospitals will make it easier to take care of ourselves.
There is no stressing the importance of location in finding a home. Just imagine the time you save, the convenience, and the moments you can spend with the people you love. Location does that and so much more.
