Nowadays, investing in a home in metropolitan areas can be a challenge. Several factors such as no ample space available, congested roads, housing price boom, and the risks of getting infected in densely populated communities contribute to buyers backing out of investing in their dream home.
Don’t lose heart. The Philippine property market has other properties outside Metro Manila that offer convenience, comfort, and safety. Such an area is Pampanga, a growing province promising the ideal cosmopolitan lifestyle blended with the suburban privacy every family dreams of having.
Here are six reasons buying a home in Pampanga should be your new investment.
Expansion of Economic Zones
With the traffic congestion in the metro worsening, economic zones outside of Metro Manila continue to expand to cater to the needs of professionals and job seekers looking for employment in easily accessible places.
One such hotspot is New Clark City. Formerly a military base, New Clark City turned into a PEZA-accredited hub. It offers retail centers, IT and BPO industries, government offices, schools, dining places, and recreation centers for tourists and locals. The new Clark International Airport is set to accommodate more local and foreign flights in the coming years. This will make Angeles City a competitive destination.
Proximity to Metro Manila
Angeles City may seem lightyears away from Metro Manila, but with the development of thoroughfares such as the North Luzon Expressway, the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway, and McArthur Highway, you will be less than two hours away from the metro.
What’s exciting is that various railways are currently under construction and pipelined to be fully operational in the next few years. Traveling to Metro Manila from your quaint Angeles home will be a breeze.
Cost-efficient Housing Options
Pampanga presents heaps of cost-efficient housing options in its premier neighborhoods. You’ll find contemporary townhouses worth Php 1.2 million up to Php 2.1 million that come with three bedrooms and up, a garage, mini garden, and the privacy of a gated subdivision. An example would be Deca Clark Residences and Resort in Angeles City.
Deca Clark, among other private subdivisions, is a residential neighborhood that offers affordable houses and lots for you to choose from. The best part is that these neighborhoods are comfortably close to the commercial areas of Angeles and San Fernando.
Along with well-built houses, the remote villages in Angeles also boast of top-tier amenities that cater to relaxation and recreation. These include clubhouses, swimming pools, parks, playgrounds, and retail spaces. Living with these facilities creates a posh lifestyle similar to premier hotels, resorts, and celebrities’ private homes. Likewise, you wouldn’t have to leave the vicinity of your home to take a dip in the pool, walk your dog, or enjoy the rich greenery.
Utmost Health, Safety, and Privacy
The growth in demand for horizontal developments is due to more expansive spaces. The distance between neighbors constitutes social distancing. With COVID-19 still looming, houses and lots are a wiser investment if you want to avoid being potentially infected. This might be the right opportunity for you to invest in a place. You’ll also optimize privacy and safety while being comfortable at home.
Gateway to the North
The roads that connect Metro Manila to Pampanga allow tourists to access various parts of the province conveniently. Pampanga also serves as the gateway to farther destinations such as Tarlac, Bataan, and Pangasinan. Satiate your love for adventure, and live in Pampanga to be close to many of Luzon’s most-prized locations.
The bottom line in buying a home is to look after your safety, comfort, convenience, and wellness. The good news is, Pampanga’s residential areas offer all of these qualities to interested buyers like you.
