Why Invest in Real Estate?

While almost everybody considers the word “investment” synonymous to “stocks,” not so many are aware that buying a real estate property is also a way of investing. In fact, given the right circumstances, this kind of investment can be a good alternative to stocks because of its low risks, better returns, and greater diversification.

Real Estate Maximizes Investment Returns

Unlike the stock market, real estate is not as liquid as an investment, which means there is no assurance that you can sell your property immediately at the time you need money.  However, because it offers long-term cash flow and provides passive income and/or potential appreciation, it is undeniably a good investment. According to Investopedia, an American online company that provides investing and finance education along with reviews, ratings, and comparisons of various financial products,  a real estate property is an ideal way to diversify one’s investment portfolio while reducing the risks and maximizing the returns.

A Resilient Investment

Entrepreneur, the American magazine and website that features news stories about entrepreneurship, small business management, and business, opines that history has proven that, the longer one holds on to his real estate property, the more money he can make eventually.  It points out that the housing market has always recovered from past bubbles that affected the appreciation of the properties. After the temporary setback, the prices return to normal eventually, and the appreciation is back on track.

Location is King

However, just because real estate is a wise investment, it does not mean that you can just put your money into any property.  While there are many factors that need to be considered, the first and the most important thing that you need to take into account before purchasing one is the location of the property you intend to buy. Since it is the most important factor for profitability, you have to make sure that the property you will purchase is in proximity to amenities and scenic views.  The closer it is to transport hubs and commercial spaces, the higher its value becomes over time.

Your Investment Journey Starts at Iloilo Business Park

Here in Iloilo, there is no question that Iloilo Business Park is the best place to invest in a real estate property. Because this 72-hectare Megaworld township boasts of world-class brands, such as The Courtyard by Marriott Hotel and Richmonde Hotel, as well as a lifestyle mall, a dining and entertainment strip (which is set to be the longest in the Visayas and Mindanao region once completed), a state-of-the-art convention center, a growing number of BPO offices, and a transport hub, it goes without saying that living in a condominium unit here equates to a lifestyle of unparalleled opportunity for optimal living.

To date, Iloilo Business Park boasts of six residential towers that not only suit one’s preference for a luxurious lifestyle but are also worthy financial investments, namely One Madison Place (which is a cluster of 3 residential towers), Lafayette, Palladium, Saint Honore, Saint Dominique, and the recently launched The Pinnacle.  While most of those who already bought a unit or two in these condominium towers intend to live in it, many also purchased for investment purposes.  In addition to these residential towers, the township also offers office units for sale in its first and only office condominium tower, The International Corporate Plaza, a prime and profitable investment for professionals and business or firm owners.

While the current developments in Iloilo Business Park have considerably changed Iloilo City’s landscape, it is still far from completion.  With its Boutique Hotel and Commercial District ready to take shape as the next Central Business District (CBD) in the Visayas, to say that things will only get better in Iloilo Business Park would be an understatement.  It is clear, though, that with these expected upcoming developments, this township is indeed prime and worthy of an investment.
