There is little to no doubt about this: investing in real estate is one of the best decisions ever. The question, though, is, where is the real estate that is the most lucrative investment?
It is already by the book that some of the most important factors in choosing a great real estate investment are location, accessibility, and livability. Top of mind for these factors would be the established business locations in Metro Manila such as Makati City, Ortigas in Pasig, and Bonifacio Global City in Taguig. While they have been considered as lucrative options for real estate, they have simply become too expensive for many. As they became costly, these cities also turned out to be immensely crowded. This prompts aspiring homebuyers to check out other locations in the metro and take advantage of their imminent growth. Quezon City is one of them.
But what is it with QC that makes it stand out above the rest?
QC’s location is becoming even more accessible
With major road connectors like EDSA, North Avenue, Quezon Avenue, Agham Road, and Commonwealth Avenue, QC’s accessibility to other cities in Metro Manila is ever-improving, especially with the MRT. Major public infrastructure projects are also underway which will soon make Quezon City the country’s “most connected city.”
New access roads on the pipeline are the NLEX Harbor Link Segment 8.2, a 7.85-km, the four-lane expressway that will link C-5 Road and Commonwealth Avenue to the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX). Meanwhile, the recently opened project which is the Metro Manila Skyway Stage 3 now serves as a connector between South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) and NLEX from Buendia, Makati City to Balintawak, Quezon City.
For the transport system, the MRT-7 is expected to be completed in a few months’ time and there will be stations in Mindanao Avenue, Novaliches, and Quirino Highway. The Metro Manila Subway, on the other hand, will have most of its stations in Quezon City starting from Mindanao Avenue-Quirino to Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) in Pasay City.
Aside from transport and connectivity, Quezon City is also home to top hospitals, entertainment hubs, and commercial establishments. This makes the city location incredibly attractive for both property hunters and investors.
In fact, the city was named the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) capital of the Philippines by the city council because of its push to promote the city as a hub for contact centers and business process outsourcing sectors. Home investors can actually capitalize on the presence of these establishments as good sources for rental income.
Praise for QC has continued over the years. Pronove Tai International Property Consultants, in an article published in Business World, named Quezon City as the fastest growing district in 2019. Invest Asian supported Pronove Tai’s announcement, indicating that one of the main reasons Quezon City is a top choice when it comes to property investment is because prices are one-half to two-thirds less than in more central locations.
Recently in its Hotspots Unwrapped: 2020’s Most Popular Locations report, Lamudi Philippines named Quezon City as the most in-demand real estate location in 2020, followed by Makati, Pasig, and Taguig.
The report further said that while everyday activities like work have become less dependent on location because of the rise of virtual arrangements, property seekers still put a premium on living within or near cities that offer various employment opportunities.
Education and arts are within reach
For parents preparing a long-term plan for their children’s education, QC definitely would be a top choice as living here means having easy access to some of the best schools and universities that produce top-notch professionals like the University of the Philippines, Ateneo de Manila, and Miriam College.
If you are also that type of person who loves to go to museums and check out art collectives, then QC is your home address to be. You’ll find the Vargas Museum in the University of the Philippines Diliman that showcases work by local artists from the 19th century to the 1950s. There also is the Ateneo Art Gallery, touted as the first museum of Philippine modern art.
There are many spots for food lovers
In QC, there is so much truth about having a lot of food places to try but too little time (and stomach space). Living in the biggest city in Metro Manila means you will never run out of good eats to try. From cozy mom and pop type of restaurants to small neighborhood food stalls to instagrammable cafes and coffee stores, there is a variety of gastronomic spots to choose from.
Most neighborhoods, if not all, are also located near well-stocked groceries and markets for when you have a hankering for a good old-fashioned home-cooked meal.
Quaint residential vibe
Quezon City is a complex, multi-dimensional, ever-changing city that offers something different at every turn. While it is one of the country’s busiest and widely accessible hubs, what actually sets it apart from other developed cities is its quaint residential vibe maintained through a well-curated mix of office spaces, industrial properties, outdoor recreational areas, artistic hubs, gastronomic centers, and ideal residential developments such as Camella Glenmont Trails located along Sauyo Road, Quezon City.
