5. A Premium Real Estate Investment
Now, this is a real kicker. Real estate investing is fairly simple, although it is understandable that the concept may be daunting for first-time buyers. It doesn’t have to be. The Philippine property sector has been the most resilient, surviving two economic downfalls: the Asian Financial Crisis in 1997 and the 2008 Global Financial Crisis. Most recently, the COVID-19 Pandemic in 2020, a lot of people thought the industry would tank, but once again, it proved doubters wrong and it forced real estate developers to rethink on how their projects can be beneficial, in light of this global problem.
Not only can they offer beautiful designs and developments, that is just the icing on the cake, they offer safe spaces, low density ones that prevent the spread of the disease and provide conveniences to their necessities. But most important of all, an investment opportunity. If you could invest in a property early, in which the price offerings are generous and have several flexibility terms, you can bank on it to generate passive income. Renting a property is still high on demand, especially in cities that offer career opportunities and master planned community-cities that provide a world-class lifestyle.
Hopefully, after reading this brief lesson about real estate as a whole, the question remains, “how will I know what property to invest in?” The answer to that question is choosing the right developer and city of your choosing. Sure, this involves a lot of research, but with the right developer, they can suggest to you their best projects located in prime cities, ripe with infrastructure developments and capital value appreciation.
Well, Crown Asia Properties is one of the brands of the respected real estate developers in the Philippines, Vista Land. They have 40 years in the industry in providing excellent upscale homes and condominiums for the deserving few. One of their vertical projects that is located in Taguig City is an early investment waiting for the next homebuyer to invest in its numerous opportunities and may be another perfect gift to give to your loved ones this Christmas.

The Courtyard is a pre-selling condo in Taguig that offers extraordinary upscale development within the urban city.
