The year 2020 is almost over. While it remains challenging because of the continued Covid-19 pandemic, the last month still means paying the ol’ holiday home a visit for some. That is if they haven’t already moved there as various forms of community quarantine had been imposed by the national government.
If you had been considering doing something similar and buying a new home, now remains as good a time as any to make that investment. And, whether you use it as a vacation home, a rental, or a permanent residence, the following are some properties currently on the market that can be worth your consideration now, or even in the foreseeable future.
An escape north of Metro Manila? This community by Camella Homes can provide you that and more. Combining Spanish-inspired architecture with affordability, Camella Tarlac provides quality houses for sale in Tarlac for families who are looking for a safe and secure residential community.
There are a variety of house designs to choose from-the Jewels series, Camella series, and Lessandra series-allowing you the opportunity to find which best suits your needs and preferences. There are also a number of amenities to make your short-term visits or permanent stays more enjoyable, including a swimming pool, clubhouse with WiFi, and a park and playground.
Lessandra San Ildefonso
Prefer a retreat that is a little closer to the National Capital Region? Then Lessandra San Ildefonso might just be the place. A wide and spacious 23-hectare Spanish Mediterranean-themed community, it is ideal for those who want to escape the busyness of the big cities, and spend plenty of time outdoors.
Two and three-bedroom houses for sale are available in the San Ildefonso, Bulacan community, which is complete with all the amenities needed to almost never leave home. These include a clubhouse, swimming pool, picnic areas, and children’s area; all of which are kept better secure with a perimeter wall and guardhouse.
Vista Treasures North
Of course, if your preference is still to own a home in Metro Manila, it doesn’t mean it can’t be a good enough place to escape to and unwind. Case in point, Vista Treasures North, which is located in the Ortigas area of Pasig City. The residential community is a rarity, being one of the view subdivisions in a metropolis with little developable land left.
Launched just this month, the community is presently under development and will figure to have all the comprehensive amenities of notable Camella Homes projects. Whether as a permanent residence or a second home, Vista Treasures North is ideal for anyone intent on having homeownership through buying a house and lot in Metro Manila.
Avida Towers Prime Taft
Of course, owning a condominium has its pluses too, especially when it is a unit in projects like Avida Towers Prime Taft. The three-tower community is strategically located on the considerably quieter side of Manila’s Taft Avenue, giving residences a place to escape to without taking them out of the center of the city.
Featuring one and two-bedroom units, Avida Towers Prime Taft is a more than suitable option if you want to buy a condominium in Metro Manila and make it a permanent residence, second home, or rental property because it is conveniently located and has a comprehensive range of amenities. These include adult and kiddie pools, a sunset deck, a jogging path, an open lawn, and a clubhouse.
South of Metro Manila is also a choice place to consider buying a home in this holiday or the next, what with the many communities rising and making places like Cavite and Laguna into increasingly common business and residential destinations that are also still relatively near the National Capital Region. Among these new developments is Suntrust Verona in Silang Cavite.
The 63-hectare enclave comprises six residential phases, each showcasing a variety of single-detached and duplex homes for sale. The community, surrounded by lush greenery and natural spaces, is made complete with amenities such as a cabana, clubhouse, swimming pool, basketball court, and children’s playground.
Bacolod is another notable option for property investment and residence. Its continued growth continues to be helped along by the rise of various mixed-use developments all over the city. Among these is Fountain Grove, a 24.52-hectare mid-cost residential development by Suntrust Properties.
It is located along the Circumferential Road bordering Mandalagan, Bacolod City and Talisay City in Negros Occidental in a township called at The Northill Gateway-a lifestyle district in Bacolod that will house residential villages, mixed-use offices, and retail establishments. As an owner of one of the three-bedroom homes in Fountain Grove, you need not go too far for recreation. Along with the many features of the township, the community also has its own amenities, such as a clubhouse, swimming pool, and playground.
Tagum City in Davao del Norte is proving to be another emerging option for home seekers looking to live and invest, this time in the Mindanao region. Similar to Bacolod and other parts of the Visayas, it continues to see modern residential developments rise, providing those who want to buy a house in Tagum City a number of options.
Among these newer developments is Palm City, a 27-hectare community by Suntrust Properties. The community is named as such because residents are made to feel like they are always on vacation, another reason why it’s a considerable choice for a holiday home. Among the development’s amenities are a cabana, a clubhouse, main entrance and guardhouse, resort-type swimming pool layout, and a wedding pavilion.
