Over the last year, more and more from Metro Manila have inquired about properties outside Metro Manila. But just what exactly makes smart property investments around the Philippines? The key is to look for upcoming opportunities and bright spots after the tumultuous events of 2021.
With people only beginning to emerge from their homes amid changing pandemic restrictions, the prolonged period of staying indoors has changed mindsets and shifted priorities. Aside from necessary decisions surrounding business and work where entrepreneurs rerouted their enterprises or closed them temporarily, families have reevaluated their lifestyles during the lockdown, as they considered moving in second homes away from Metro Manila.
Economists’ outlook for next year is cautious yet upbeat: ADB projects a 5.5% GDP growth for the country in 2022. This, coupled with new consumer demands, indicates that now is an opportune time to make smart property investments. The property market in the Philippines is poised for a rebound amid the overall economic rebound projected this year, according to the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas.
Why invest now, you ask? With vaccination programs underway and certain economic sectors gearing for a revival, the country is getting ready to rise on its feet. The rising desire for more holistic lifestyles and dealing with ever-shifting quarantine levels have made buyers look into sprawling properties outside Metro Manila and set up a more permanent second base.
This opens up the possibilities for refined countryside living away from Metro Manila such as Cebu –– a charming, unique, and vibrant locale that keeps premier city conveniences within arm’s reach.
What factors are investors considering in smart property investments? Find out more below.
Metro Manila’s state as a congested metro, along with last year’s lockdown, has convinced people to diversify their properties, establish second homes away from NCR and in places with lush greenery and master-planned outdoor landscapes.
Aspiring investors and property owners are looking at locations that have vast open spaces for relaxing and a slower pace of living. These buyers want communities that grant the luxury of space and nature, providing a higher quality of life for the family.
Cebu is becoming top of mind for those looking to venture out of Metro Manila, for its ability to balance urban development with the serenity of nature and unhurried lifestyle. A premium development in Cebu like 32 Sanson by Rockwell offers residents the opportunity to bask in elegant living with artfully landscaped greenery and a vibrant yet peaceful community—while being a stone’s throw away from the city center. 32 Sanson’s wide, spacious units perched on top of 3.2 hectares of artfully landscaped greenery lets you live life in serenity and give you much room to breathe.
City living conveniences
While many dream of living in a nature-filled countryside, maintaining proximity to urban conveniences are of utmost importance to truly live a stress-free and worry-free lifestyle.
Although the simple, provincial life can sound appealing to residents looking for a change of pace from Manila’s hustle and bustle, staying close to utilities and necessary establishments such as banks, hospitals, groceries helps you live out a more permanent arrangement as you can attend to the day’s affairs as needed, instead of feeling like you’re on a prolonged staycation.

Opportunities for business and growth
One key incentive investors are considering in property investments is the opportunity and feasibility to build or expand their business.
A city or town that can offer unique charms and warmth in its culture and community alongside a bustling economy is an attractive option to relocate or establish a second home.
