A good investment for your second home


    Making the right investments is a challenge that may stump even the most astute business people when a global crisis hits. For property seekers, however, the pandemic has underscored how real estate investments show potential for both appreciation and cash flow.

    As a tangible item, real estate allows more control than other forms of investment—more so now when volatility in the stock market is seen by wise investors as an opportunity to reassess asset allocations and consider how real estate can fit into their portfolios.

    With community quarantine still in place in key areas, investors are now seeing the wisdom of buying properties located in lush mountainous areas. These locations serve as an idyllic retreat from congested and overcrowded cities by virtue of their generous open spaces for leisurely walks, jogging, breathing in fresh air, and observing physical distancing. And if one such locale is just a road-cruise from the metro, it also provides a convenient option for telecommuting (working from home).

    Imagine doing this while staying safely cocooned in Tagaytay Highlands, the Philippines’ premier mountain resort exclusive for members. More aptly defined as a weekend vacation and golfer’s haven, the Highlands is now also regarded by city dwellers as a tranquil space for productivity, a suburban community with plentiful nature scenery as its everyday backdrop.

    Located 90 minutes away from the Makati Central Business District, Tagaytay Highlands is also very accessible to other nearby business centers. Its proximity to hospitals, schools, retail establishments, industrial and technological parks, churches, banks, gasoline stations, and access roads enhance its value as a prime property investment.

    The latest addition to Tagaytay Highlands’ Horizon Community, Horizon Terraces is a good option for an investment, with its Asian-contemporary residential structures featuring picturesque views of nature.

    Horizon Terraces houses Garden Suites, with well-appointed living spaces and the conveniences of a modern condominium lifestyle. Buildings are oriented toward views of nature around: Taal Lake, Midlands Golf Course, Mt. Makiling and Central Garden.

    Aside from Garden Suites, Horizon Terraces also offers Garden Villas—three-bedroom townhouse units of 136 to 168 square meters. The low-density villa makes up only five to seven units per cluster for privacy and security. Garden Villas include spacious living areas, a multi-functional den that can be converted to a separate bedroom or home office, balconies, and a terrace that leads to views of Taal Lake and Midlands Golf Course.

    Residents of Horizon Terraces’ Garden Suites and Garden Villas get to enjoy playing rights to The Country Club at Tagaytay Highlands (TCCATH Share) and Tagaytay Midlands Golf Club (TMGC Share), respectively.
