Taguig has the best of both worlds: the “Joie de Vivre” of a typical business district and the quiet charm of a private enclave. While the city is becoming one of the fastest growing business centers in Metro Manila, it is still a far cry from the bustling and often chaotic Makati and Ortigas. Hence, it is an ideal place for young professionals, startup families, and expatriates who are considering relocating to Metro Manila.
Its most prominent area, the Bonifacio Global City, is abound with plush residential condominiums. While investing in a condo unit, especially in the heart of Taguig’s business center, may sound like an intimidating prospect, it comes with perks that professionals and young families can definitely benefit from. To name a few:
- Accessibility. Taguig is home to a plethora of international schools and universities, such as the International School of Manila, the British School Manila, and the Enderun Colleges. For families with school-aged kids, this is certainly a win-win as they won’t need to weave through the traffic just to get their kids to school on time. In addition, Taguig is also home to some of the metro’s upscale shopping centers, such as the Market! Market!, Serendra Piazza, and the Bonifacio High Street. It also doesn’t hurt to know that Taguig, specifically Bonifacio Global City, is just a few minutes’ drive from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.
- No lawns to mow. Maintenance is, by far, one of the biggest conveniences condo living can offer. When you live in a condo unit, you can do away with the hassle and costs of maintaining a manicured lawn, let alone a full-blown garden.
- It’s not just a home. It’s a lucrative investment. In the long run, condo units, especially those located in the Bonifacio Global City, can guarantee great returns on investment. Its proximity to Makati and Ortigas and the accessibility and convenience it offers makes it easier for you to lease it out to someone who might be interested in living in Taguig.
- Price. Let’s face it: pound for pound, residential houses are still more expensive than a condominium unit in the city’s prime areas. While, yes, there is always the possibility of finding a cheaper lot to build a house in, it may often be in less desirable neighborhoods and suburban areas. Condominiums, on the other hand, have a wider price range. Compared to residential houses, there’s a bigger chance of you finding a condominium unit within a business district that fits your budget.
Condo living in Taguig also affords you access to amenities you’ll usually pay extra for and waste gas on. Many condominium communities come with swimming pools, gyms, tennis and basketball courts, and a safe common play area for kids. And most of the time, access to these amenities are free or at a discounted price.
