Homes that make for a great buy

/ 05:47 AM August 19, 2017

Planning of getting into real estate? Now is the perfect time for you to check your finances and gather up the courage to purchase your first piece of land. Bear in mind that bricks and mortar continue to be among the most stable investment options today.

With this option, you are not just purchasing a home, as you are also buying into a project that can provide potentially lucrative returns in the future.


But just like any investment that involves your hard earned cash, you have to be smart about it. So what are your considerations? How do you find the right development for you?

For some buyers, one of the considerations would be the overall vibe and ambience offered by a certain location—a tranquil place where one can get away from the hectic schedule of the metro and just simply relax.


Given the increasingly limited space in the metro, some prefer locations in nearby provinces, where they can enjoy serene surroundings without being too far from the modern conveniences of the city.

Here are a couple of projects that you may want to consider to be your next “home away from home.”

El Pueblo Verde in Gerona, Tarlac

The town of Gerona is a first-class municipality located just outside the limits of Tarlac City, the capital of Tarlac.

It is also home to the El Pueblo Verde, which offers the ambience of country living where you can come home to fresh air and where you will have the chance to recharge after a long week in the city.

Here, you’re able to live closer to nature, which would allow you to rejuvenate your tired body. It should be noted that most of the surrounding are fertile land allotted mainly for sugar cane. The remaining land is a protected area for forests.

Not too far from the town center is the main artery of McArthur Highway which connects El Pueblo Verde to neighboring areas and regions. The town is furnished with schools, churches, clinics, parks and commercial centers. The Gerona Municipal Hall is also not too far from the town.


It also comes with practical amenities such as a clubhouse with swimming pool, basketball, tennis and badminton courts, concrete road networks and concrete curbs, sidewalks and gutters. It has wide-open spaces and a children’s playground where you kids can roam safely within the enclave.

It has a centralized water system and an underground drainage system. Division of land includes portions that were set aside for agro-industrial zone, while other areas are classified as light industrial zones.

Indeed, El Pueblo may also prove to be an ideal place to raise a young family. Don’t miss this opportunity to live close to nature in El Pueblo Verde.

Cambridge Place in Tanauan, Batangas

Imagine waking up to a view of Mount Makiling with the blue sky as its backdrop. This is what it means to have a country home down south where you will be embraced by nature.

Batangas is known as a popular weekend getaway for those living in Metro Manila, but there are others looking at making it their home.

The City of Tanauan, in particular, is accessible to urbanites as it is just two hours away from the metro. And in here is where the 30.8-hectare Cambridge Place is located.

Cambridge Place, located along JP Laurel Highway, is just minutes away from various malls. It is also near De La Salle University, banks, and church. Within the vicinity is Lipa Municipal Hall, Lipa-Malvar Industrial Estates, Pilipinas Kyohritsu Inc. and Nestle Philippines.

It can also be ideal for family getaways. Weekends will prove to become more memorable with amenities such as a clubhouse, swimming pool and basketball court. The little ones can also have some fun in the playground.

A multipurpose clubhouse is also in place where you can set up family reunions or celebrations of all sorts. Lush trees likewise abound here.

Both El Pueblo Verde and Cambridge Place are best examples of country living within nearby provinces. It showcases a quiet life within nature where family ties are envisioned to have stronger bonds.

Remember that real estate is a flexible investment. Either you live in it, rent it to somebody else or hold on to it for future use.

And yes, it will always be considered as a positive cash flow. So choose wisely and more importantly, invest wisely.
