The best thing about having a real estate investment is that no matter how bad the economy is, it will always amount to incredible returns. It is an in-demand commodity that will never run out of takers. Both commercial and residential spaces have a place in the market. Owning a part of Metro Manila is definitely an invaluable investment. And so here’s a quick guide to some of Manila’s prime locations:
At the edge of Paranaque city lies an emerging business district. The reclaimed area is a prime location without the premium price just yet. More and more people are turning their heads to this city when top entertainment establishments such as City of Dreams started its development. It’s no wonder a number of low-rise condominiums have already camped in this underrated city. Expats and balikbayan families make up most of its population as it is just a few minutes away from the airport. From the area, Manila and Makati are accessible via EDSA while the greater South including Cavite and Alabang can be accessed through Roxas Boulevard or Macapagal Boulevard. Moreover, the skyway construction is on full blast which means the terrible traffic that Coastal brings will soon be a memory.

Now this may seem like a wild card, but this safe and secure subdivision may be the best choice you’ll ever make. A fine suburban set-up perfect for raising a growing family, private schools, groceries and recreational parks are designated within the subdivision with exclusively accessible roads. The neighborhood is filled with like-minded people, promoting a strong sense of community. It’s surprising how this relaxed haven is literally beside NAIA.

Small townships such as Mckinley Hill are tucked in the city’s corners for those who prefer a more relaxed lifestyle. While more developments queue in the area, modern office blocks and luxury residences still run this city. Its top-rate land is definitely worth every peso.
Just a few blocks and minutes away from the Pasig’s busy district, this quiet neighborhood shows the right mix of residential and commercial spaces. The area is quite known for being the oasis among the towering offices and condominiums around it. While primarily a residential area suitable for raising families, small-time businesses are still lined up on its major roads. Quaint restaurants are on every corner where your cravings can surely be satisfied. Local entrepreneurs have also taken their spot on this brewing market and more are expected in years to come. It’s no struggle reaching the place as well. Jeepney routes go all the way to Antipolo and tricycles terminals are set up on major drop-off points. This neighborhood is about to get valuable and owning a piece of it is definitely a solid investment.
Bagumbayan, Quezon City
The booming district of the North is known for its live-work-play development which is Eastwood City. While it’s technically in QC, people from Cainta to Pasig find it physically close by. Built as a prime hub, young families, and on-the-go yuppies enjoy this upbeat city. It is home to some of the largest IT and BPO’s in the country while residential condominiums are just next door. And to top it all, there are also retail shops, bars and restaurants that go side-by-side so you wouldn’t have to spare an hour in traffic just to have fun.
