For urban dwellers, the prospect of settling down in the South promises a distinct lifestyle from the fast pace of city life. In recent years, Laguna has become an increasingly popular choice. While it is noted for its historical, cultural, and geographical landmarks, the area continues to see a surge in economic activity, thanks to increasing infrastructure, residential, and commercial developments. For these reasons, investing in Laguna real estate has become a viable option to many. Moreover, the promise of wide open green spaces and a more leisurely pace of living makes Laguna even more attractive.
Check out these real estate investment tips to get you started in finding the right laguna property for you.
Your real estate investment goals
Investing fulfills several goals. Perhaps you are an end-user looking for a lot on which to build a home for a growing family. On the other hand, maybe you are looking to build and then later sell or rent out your property? If it is the former, you will be more personally invested in the features of a development and its environs. Laguna offers greater solitude, fresh air, and open spaces. From a lessor’s perspective, these same features will also be attractive for prospective lessees. That means greater chances of renting out your property.
Practical considerations such as the lot size will also inform your decision. Are you a newlywed couple about to start a family? Does your household include both children and seniors? Or are you well into your retirement years with adult children who have since left home to start their own families? Finally, what is your investment budget for the lot of your choice?
Whether you intend to use a property or rent it out, investing in real estate is a smart move. It contributes to a more diversified personal asset portfolio. Moreover, you can also expect your purchase to rise in value over time. In fact, real estate investments can even outperform stocks and bonds during a recession.
On the subject of portfolio diversification and value appreciation, purchasing a Laguna property is a smart option to properties located in the city. Increased infrastructure such as the Cavite–Laguna Expressway (CALAX) as well as the proposed Calamba–Los Baños Expressway increases accessibility, which in turn, will encourage socio-economic activity.
Of course, Laguna’s proximity to Metro Manila remains a strong selling point. The area is currently home to various business centers, as well as a PEZA zone in Biñan. Couple Laguna’s bustling economic activity with the well-appointed features of a community such as Rockwell South at Carmelray, then you have an attractive investment prospect in your hands.
Rockwell South at Carmelray is Rockwell’s first high-end residential community in the South. It sets itself apart by integrating elements of nature through tree-lined roads, walkways, pocket parks, and trails across 60 hectares of lush land.
The value of location cannot be emphasized enough. Location not only affects the value appreciation of a property, but also its convenience for residents. Consider the development’s access to major thoroughfares–and its distance from these. Secondly, look into the schools, business districts, commercial centers, places of worship, and hospitals within reach.
If you are a family relocating from the city center, proximity to these locales means you have everything you need at your disposal. That translates to more options for schools your children can attend, places of work to consider, healthcare facilities that address your medical needs, and leisure destinations to visit.
The location of Rockwell South at Carmelray, for instance, ticks all these boxes. Nearby schools include Xavier School, Dela Salle University, and the Ateneo Graduate School. Lifestyle destinations include the Canlubang Golf and Country Club and Nuvali. Medical City and the Qualimed Hospital are also both within reach. Moreover, it is conveniently located near five exits to the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX).
A smart investment also requires due diligence. It pays to know the track record of the developer you choose to purchase a property with. Research the developer’s past projects. What features of these communities stand out to you? Do you like the way residential, business, and the commercial areas are laid out within the community? Do the amenities meet your needs? Are there sufficient spaces for living, playing, and working?
Ask about unit features and deliverables. Are the unit finishings and inclusions of impressive quality? Is there generous floor space and ample ceiling height regardless of the unit type?
Discuss the safety and security features with the sales representative. How is the community’s level of exclusivity and privacy–and does it meet or exceed your expectations? If you decide to purchase a property, what level of service can you expect? Does the developer provide comprehensive property management services from your initial inquiry all the way to after-sales management?
Choosing a reputable developer of premiere properties like Rockwell Land means you can expect the same superior quality and signature lifestyle that Rockwell communities are noted for – from the thoughtfully designed units all the way to the distinct living experience.
