OFWs and migrant Filipinos often hear a common phrase when buying Philippine real estate properties. An important factor they must consider is location, location, and location. It might be tempting to buy a condominium unit because of its fancy design and built-in closets or its cheap price. But making decisions based on how the condominium unit looks can be a big mistake. Try to consider the house location because location is also an important factor in the buying process. Your property location will determine whether you will love the place or look for another property location.
The condition of the condominium unit can be changed. Condominium owners can even alter the layout of the unit for a modern look. But one thing condominium owners cannot change is the location. OFWs and migrant Filipinos need to be aware of the supply and demand of condominium units. These factors will always play a role in real estate value.
There are also condominium units found outside of major cities. These types of units may not be as in demand as the first ones but they offer potential. One thing OFWs and migrant Filipinos can easily overlook is buying condominium units based on their future potential. Location may not change but businesses and people around it do.
So a good real estate investment tip is not to buy a condominium unit in a good or bad location, but buy a condominium unit in a location that has growth potential.
Why is Property Location so Imporant?
House location is one of the most important factors that determines its resale value. Properties in desirable locations with good schools, amenities, and access to transportation tend to hold their value better and sell faster than properties in less desirable property locations.
Quality of life
Property location can have a big impact on your quality of life. For example, if you have children, you’ll want to live in a neighborhood with good schools. If you commute to work, you’ll want to live near public transportation or major highways. And if you enjoy being active, you’ll want to live in a neighborhood with parks, trails, and other recreational amenities.
House location can also affect your convenience. If you live near grocery stores, restaurants, shopping malls, and other businesses, you’ll be able to save time and money on transportation. And if you live near public transportation, you’ll have an easy way to get around without having to drive.
The safety of your neighborhood is also an important consideration when buying a house. You’ll want to choose a neighborhood with a low crime rate and good police protection.
Potential for future development
If you’re planning on staying in your home for the long term, you’ll want to consider the potential for future development in the area. If there are plans for new businesses, schools, or transportation infrastructure, this could increase the value of your home in the future.
