The Only Guide You’ll Need Going South

May 20, 2021 by Matthew Du

Share on:

Who doesn’t love great investment opportunities? That means you get more money! It’s amazing is what it is. Believe it or not, buying a house is an investment. What makes it a good investment would be the value of the home and if the value increases in the future. By buying yourself a house, you’re investing and potentially setting yourself up for more money in the future! Just make sure that you buy the right house.

 

But buying a house is harder than it looks. And while most people think that buying a house simply means looking at different houses and choosing your favorite one, that’s not the case. You need to do some paperwork. You need to choose a good location and check if there is an available house in said location. And you will, most probably, have a specific criterion for what you want in a house. But wait. Let’s take this step by step. First things first. Where do you want to live?

 

To help you out, we’ll be showing you different and all equally amazing places in the south of Luzon where you can live in. We’ll be explaining how you get from Manila to the south of Luzon through popular highways and others.

 

 

 

What is the South?

 

Why Manilenos Are Seeking the Comfort of the South

 

North, south, west, and east. It gets confusing sometimes. And we, more often than not, do not know the places in the north of the Philippines or the west of Mindanao. We’re not all geography geniuses. So, the big question is what are the places found in the South of Luzon? And why do we deem these places “amazing”? A simple way to remember all the places in the south of Luzon is by using the acronym “CALABARZON”.  CA stands for Cavite, LA for Laguna, BA for Batangas, RZ for Rizal and ON for Quezon. Below, we’ll be giving a detailed explanation as to what kind of neighborhood these places have and some tourist spots and real estate opportunities in these places.

 

 

 

What are the places?

 

1. Cavite

 

Cavite, with its deep history and prosperous economy, is a prime location for a home. Bringing tranquil and urban living together, this province offers tons of job opportunities as well as neighborhoods fit for raising families. Because of how close it is to Manila, you have the option to work in the Metropolis as well as live in Cavite. Contact one of our capable agents and staff in Crown Asia through our website if you want to begin looking for a house and lot for sale in Cavite now!

 

 

2. Batangas

 

Batangas is quite similar to Cavite. It is close to Metro Manila and includes a dynamic local culture. It has plenty of suburban areas for those who wish to live in a quiet neighborhood. For those who are starting a family, it is home to a lot of great schools and universities. With the help of our Crown Asia agents, we’re sure that finding the perfect luxury home for you here won’t be a problem.

 

 

3. Laguna

 

Laguna is filled with rising businesses and surrounded by beautiful tourist spots such as Mt. Makiling and the Sierra Madre. These tourist spots have become commercial establishments that have improved Laguna’s economy. Aside from this, there are tons of neighborhoods for you to permanently reside in. These neighborhoods provide stress-free environments and a tight-knit community. If you are interested in looking at possible house and lots in Laguna and finding your perfect luxury home, begin your house hunting journey now!

 

 

4. Rizal

 

Here’s the amazing thing about this province. It’s accessibility. Because Rizal is developing, the province is also building infrastructures that provide more options for you to get to and from Rizal.  It also provides an idyllic lifestyle and great communities that offer tons of luxury homes.

 

 

5. Quezon

 

When you live in Quezon, you have easy access to different malls, coffee shops, restaurants, and places to buy your essentials. There are also tons of schools and universities in the Quezon area. That’s a great added benefit especially for those who have families or want to start families. It is also close to Manila. And Quezon has a progressive economy which allows for more job opportunities. There are lots of house and lots for sale in Quezon. If you need help trying to find the hidden gems in the province, contact one of our capable staff in Crown Asia through the website or schedule an appointment.

 

 

 

What can you see in the south?

 

Now that we’ve explained the benefits of living in CALABARZON, you might be wondering what you can find in the south that is rare and beautiful and why it is such a great investment to buy a house here in CALABARZON. Don’t worry if you still don’t get it! We’ll be mentioning the different tourist spots found in CALABARZON below as well as the real estate opportunities you can find.

 

 

 

Tourist Spots

 

 

Corregidor Island in Cavite

 

When you are on vacation in Cavite, Corregidor is considered a must-see. It is filled with history. Here, you can see the different tunnels that have been here since our fight against the Japanese. And it’s summer all year round! On this island, you can find different beach destinations where can you relax and swim. It also is filled with prime spots for photographs because of the breathtaking view.

 

Imagine finally having some time off from your extremely stressful job. You’ve decided to visit Corregidor Island in Cavite. Now, you’re walking down the beach, feeling the wind in your face and the sand between your toes. And finally, you can relax. Imagine the relief you feel when you finally have time for yourself. That is what Corregidor Island offers you.

 

Enchanted Kingdom in Laguna

 

Enchanting Opportunities in Laguna Why You Should Live in Sta v2. Rosa. Crown Asia

 

Dubbed as the “Philippine’s Disneyland”, this is the largest and most popular theme park destination in Luzon. This theme park is located in Sta. Rosa Laguna is a suburb that is about 39 kilometers south of Manila. The drive from Metro Manila to the Enchanted Kingdom takes approximately 1 hour although it varies depending on the traffic.

 

Boasting fun, modern rides, Enchanted Kingdom ensures that each person who visits enjoys their day. Whether you are a thrill-seeker or a child, there is a ride for you in this theme park.

 

Tagaytay

 

Tagaytay Cavite 10 min Crown Asia House and Lot for Sale

 

Imagine staying at a quaint and cozy bed-and-breakfast and waking up to the view of the Taal volcano. After a while, you get hungry. That’s not a problem! Visit one of the many restaurants featuring rich local cuisine. One of the top restaurants, Antonio’s, in the Philippines is located in Tagaytay. While you walk to the restaurant, feel the cool breeze.

 

In Tagaytay, you can experience endless activities from horseback riding to visiting the zoo or the Sky Ranch. It’s only a 45-minute drive from Cavite, a province filled with prosperous neighborhoods! That’s a great perk. Living in places near Tagaytay is most definitely a luxury. To help you find your ideal luxury home, Crown Asia agents are available and willing to help.

 

 

 

Real estate

 

So, say you’re thinking of looking for a house and lot for sale in Cavite. Buying a luxury home is a big decision. So why invest in real estate here? Here’s one reason I know turns heads. You get to earn money.

 

When you buy a luxury home, you buy it at a certain price. As years go by, the value of your home increases. And so, if you sell your home in the future, you can up the price and earn more money than you paid for. That’s profit. Investing in real estate here in the south, especially because these provinces are developing, is a real win!

 

 

 

Why would you want to live here?

Areas in the south are constantly developing. There are tons of upcoming infrastructure projects to build different roads and highways or different institutions. Businesses are starting up in these places. These areas have booming economies because of their prime location and the money they get out of the tourists who visit the beautiful tourist spots in the south of Luzon. To live in one of these tranquil suburban areas, start house hunting for a house and lot for sale in Cavite and different places in the south of Luzon now and contact one of our agents from Crown Asia to make sure you get prime luxury homes.

 

 

 

How do you get to the south?

 

 

 

Popular highways

 

blurry highway house and lot for sale crown asia

 

South Luzon Expressway (SLEX)

 

A highway or expressway you can use to get to the South would be the South Luzon Expressway. This highway that was first built in 1960 links Metro Manila to the CALABARZON region. Previously named South Superhighway, this highway has a total length of 51 kilometers and it starts from Paco District in Quirino Avenue and gives you access to the cities in Manila such as Makati and Pasay. This expressway also goes through certain municipalities in the provinces of Cavite, Laguna, and more. It’s a perfect option for going to and from the south of Luzon and Manila.

 

 

Manila Cavite Expressway (CAVITEX)

 

This expressway is about 14 kilometers long and starts at a traffic light intersection with NAIA Road and Roxas Boulevard. This highway gives you access to different areas in Cavite such as Bacoor. Going to Cavite from Manila and vice versa becomes easy because of this expressway. But that’s not all. There are also plans to develop this expressway to give motorists easy access to several areas in the south.

 

 

Metro Manila Skyway

 

Fun fact, this skyway has one of the longest flyovers in the world. This highway spans around 18.68 kilometers. It connects the North Luzon Expressway to the South Luzon Expressway and vice versa. This highway is also the first fully grade-separated highway in the Philippines. Because of this, it helps other expressways relieve heavy traffic. An example would be SLEX. The Metro Manila Skyway most definitely makes it on our list of popular highways you can use to get to and from Manila and the south of Luzon.

 

 

Muntinlupa-Cavite Expressway (MCX)

 

This is the last but not the least expressway on the list. This expressway, commonly known as MCX, is the shortest in the Philippines with a length of 4 kilometers. However, this expressway is access-controlled meaning there is a toll. It connects the southern part of Cavite to Muntinlupa which is a city in Metro Manila. This is a great option for getting to your destination fast, quickly, and easily.

 

 

 

Other Options

 

 

Bus

 

While the aforementioned highways and expressways to get to the south are very acceptable, there are times when we do not have vehicles available for our personal use. That’s when buses come in. You can take the bus to get to Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, or Quezon from Manila and vice versa. It’s a great and affordable way to get to and from different places. The bus usually costs around PHP 92 to PHP 98 although that can change. The night bus typically costs around PHP 70 to PHP 100.

 

 

Taxi

 

Taking a taxi is another great alternative to using a personal car. Although, this does cost far more than taking the bus. The cost for a taxi would typically be around PHP 290 to PHP 360 although different taxi companies charge different rates. There are tons of different ways to get to and from Manila and the south of Luzon. Because the government keeps developing new infrastructure and highways, you have easy access to different areas in Luzon. That is most definitely considered a great benefit.

 

 

 

Conclusion

 

Finding a luxury home is a tedious task. Looking at different homes is the bread and butter of the process but, it’s not the only part. There’s paperwork and the matter of finding the perfect location for your house. The perfect location must be close to your job, close to your child’s school but it must also be able to offer you the quiet you crave when you’re stressed out. The areas in the south of Luzon might just be perfect for you! There are tourist spots and as an added perk, there are expressways that make going to Manila from your home easy.

 

The entire process of finding a home is made easy when you work with a real estate agent from Crown Asia. We’ll make sure to find the ideal home for you as well as make sure that that home is within your budget. We want to ensure your happiness and wellbeing. After all, the customer always comes first. We’ll help with all the boring paperwork so all you have to do is enjoy the best part of the house-hunting process: looking at the different beautiful homes and choosing your favorite one.
