Why the South is a Good Choice In Real Estate Investment in the Philippines


Are you looking for a real estate investment in the Philippines? Are you considering investing in the ever-bustling Metro Manila? You need not look any further because DMCI Homes has a new resort-style project in the south of Manila, perfect for investors like yourself.

Sonora Garden Residences is strategically located at Alabang-Zapote Road, Talon Tres in the beautiful city of Las Pinas. It features lifestyle amenities, open spaces, 24/7 security, and the convenience of living near major transport networks.

Real estate investing, similar to other ventures, should involve intensive research on the viability of the venture, the risks, the alternatives, and other relevant factors that may affect the investment.

So why should you consider investing in a city in the south of the capital?

1. Away from the hustle and bustle of the City

The fast-paced city life can be stressful. However, in the South of Metro Manila, amid the emergence of techno hubs and busy business districts, there are open spaces and pockets of nature where city dwellers can find relaxation, allowing you to stroll, jog, and do healthy exercises in parks around the district.

2. Your travel gateway, locally and abroad

The South is your link to CALABARZON provinces and the rest of the Philippines. A condo in Las Piñas for example allows you to just drive further south to Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, and Quezon for business. From the South, you can also travel further down to the Visayas and Mindanao provinces via the Batangas Port.

If you are usually traveling by air, it is easier to get to the Ninoy International Airport, which is in the South, for your local and international trips.

3. Premier hospitals within your reach

The South of Manila is where you can find some of the top healthcare facilities in the country. You can rest assured that when you live in a condo for rent in Las Piñas, you’re near the best healthcare facilities. The top hospitals within reach are St. Luke’s Medical Center at Bonifacio Global City, Asian Hospital and Medical Center in Muntinlupa, and Paranaque Doctors Hospital and University of Perpetual Help Hospital in Las Pinas.

4. Surrounding prestigious schools and universities

With the South being home to prestigious schools and universities, you may market your DMCI Homes condo unit sale to young families or lease to college students.

Some of the top universities and colleges in the area are: University of Perpetual Help, Centro Escolar University Las Piñas, San Beda College Alabang, Far Eastern University (FEU) Alabang, and De La Salle Santiago Zobel, and Mapua Institute of Technology.

For young families with grade-schoolers and high school students, the options include

University of Perpetual Help (Las Pinas), Elizabeth Seton School (Las Pinas), Southville International School (Las Pinas), San Beda College (Alabang), Manresa School (Paranaque), and De La Salle Zobel School (Muntinlupa).

5. The awesome gastronomy of the South

The South is a haven for foodies! Getting a condo in Parañaque allows you to access a long list of restaurants, diners, hotels, buffets and even food carts that cut across all types of palates, giving everyone in the family a meal to fall in love with.

6. The south offers the best condo communities

  • Invest in a promising area where growth aboundsOne way to invest in real estate in the Philippines is to assess the location of the property and do some research if there are possible development projects surrounding the property. These factors have a positive effect on the market value of the property as these can increase property values considerably.Sonora Garden Residences is not only adjacent to a community mall, it is also within the area of infrastructure development and prime growth. Several major government projects are being completed in the area including the Cavite Expressway (CAVITEX), Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAX), an extension of C5 link, LRT extension to Las Pinas, and the skyway extension that connects SLEX to NLEX.Because of these developments, the South will soon be more accessible, possibly encouraging more people to migrate down under.

    As a smart investor, you must consider what the property developer has to offer before signing the contract of sale. The factors that you must consider when investing in real estate are the size of the units and the amenities that will be provided by the land developer. These factors are important if you are planning to lease out your condo unit.
