Deciding where to build your family’s house and plant roots? That is no easy decision to make, with several factors to take into consideration.
The pandemic has led families to reconsider the idea of city living and explore other possibilities where their family can enjoy a better quality of life, as many set their sights beyond the metro for their new home. As families stayed indoors for a long period of time, potential homeowners and investors are now beginning to look into certain factors that were not as big of a priority before. This includes where to build their new family home.
Households are now reconsidering their lifestyle in the city, opting away from congested streets in favor of quieter communities, green spaces, and spacious areas. Communities in provinces that are close to Manila such as Laguna are becoming an increasingly attractive option for families — it affords them the respite they crave from the city, while still being near enough to attend to business and other important matters in Manila.
That said, not all neighborhoods are created equally. Communities that are a cut above the rest bring home some of the city’s premier amenities, while being surrounded by expansive lawns and lush greenery.
With economic recovery expected to gain traction next year, families may want to look into taking advantage of generous property sizes, as well as a peaceful neighborhood where children can grow up with the luxury of space and nature—while staying close to urban conveniences.
When you build a home with a trusted developer, you ensure the security of your investment—later reaping the benefits of living in a new and vibrant neighborhood.
If you’d like to explore these elements in further detail, here are other elements to consider in deciding where to build your next house.
A community close to the city
Living in high-rise developments may be the ideal choice when you want to be at the center of action in the city, but it may not be the case for families looking to spread their wings. While living close to your workplace has its perks, a community out in the suburbs allows your family a more balanced lifestyle, as well as a respite from the city.
While condominiums are usually situated in prime areas such as CBDs and have their own set of exclusive amenities, consider whether this lifestyle is suited to your family. As people stayed indoors over the pandemic, they may start to want larger and more open spaces to be within their reach.
Moreover, increasing work-from-home setups and flexible workplace arrangements are making it even more possible for working family members to consider a more holistic and peaceful environment.
A spacious neighborhood with amenities
While couples and solo residents may feel right at home living in the middle of a business district, parents with young children may feel more secure living in a house with a larger floor area within a quiet, sprawling neighborhood. Master-planned communities outside the city allow you to live large—generously sized property cuts provide you the liberty to construct wider and more spacious homes.
Similarly, families may also prefer living within a gated community with a clubhouse and recreational parks so they can regularly bond and enjoy nature with their children.
Property assets with increasing investments
Many investors purchase real estate and wait for its value to appreciate–a fitting strategy for lots in horizontal developments. Master-planned communities offer enticing deals and good value for properties on sale, with the hope that they would increase in value as these communities develop. Lots are rewarding investments, as people look to move away from the bustle of city life and reside in more peaceful developments.
Premier, exclusive, and high-quality developments in strategic locations continue to hold strong appeal for prospective buyers.
