Goals will often define an individual’s future endeavors and way of life.

Some people may just settle for the more popular “squad goals” or “couple goals” but only few seem to be drawn to targeting “financial goals.” It is, however, crucial for many to realize and fully understand the value of being prepared and of investing in things that truly matter.

One of the options that may help you meet your financial goals is real estate—whether you’re buying a property that will serve as your home or as an investment for future use, given the continued rise of land values in the metro.

But in a country flooded by different developments all promising to deliver the best of the best, how does one choose?

They say that the key to a wise property purchase is in selecting the right location.

To help you decide, we have narrowed down the list to three key cities that may provide the highest potential for investment growth and a conducive environment to raise a family.

These cities not only offer economic perks for investors, but are also cited for providing a unique lifestyle for its aspiring end users or homeowners.

Pasig City

One of the oldest municipalities in the country, Pasig City has come a long way from once being a rural residential area to becoming the second largest business district in Metro Manila.

This is why most of today’s business owners, entrepreneurs, and office workers aim to make Pasig their home.

This highly-urbanized city houses several multinational companies that are mostly within the Ortigas central business district. Micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) benefit from such a thriving commercial vicinity that offers vital support to help aspiring business owners turn their ideas into profits.

San Juan City

Although the smallest city in Metro Manila, San Juan City wows in cultural and economic prominence. This vicinity is also known as an education hub where some of the best schools in the metro are located.

Among these schools are Xavier School, La Salle Greenhills, OB Montessori Center, Immaculate Conception Academy, and St. Paul University. Transportation hubs also abound in San Juan, which make traveling across the metro more convenient.

This is why it has become the ideal home for many aspiring city dwellers. Those who dream of giving their young family a smoother city living experience will always consider this city as their top choice.

Mandaluyong City

Considered as among the most progressive economic centers in the country, Mandaluyong has cemented its role as the home of leading business and industrial companies.

A cluster of shopping centers also characterizes this area.  The enormous SM Megamall stands side by side with the posh Shangri-la Plaza and The Podium.

But as shopping centers dot the map of the city, Mandaluyong built equally astounding breathing spaces such as parks and lush gardens to promote an active lifestyle.

Distinguished schools are either near or within this city like Poveda College, University of Asia & the Pacific, Jose Rizal University, Lourdes School of Mandaluyong and Don Bosco Technical College, all with outstanding academic reputations.

If you would like to invest in a property here, you will truly have a great chance of attracting travelers, fellow businessmen, young professionals, parents, and students.

Indeed, it can be tricky to choose a property for investment or personal use.

However, some companies and institutions can provide just the right product for you. And in property investment, one developer that makes for a practical option and a brilliant choice is Empire East.

For decades, the company has been relentlessly conceptualizing and constructing high-quality developments that allow aspiring city dwellers to live the life they want to live—#squadgoals with friends, #couplegoals and #familygoals with their loved ones, and as importantly #financialgoals for themselves.

Empire East’s roster of residential developments is present in the cities mentioned above—all thriving and known for their unique lifestyle offers.

The company likewise believes that by carefully selecting key locations, it allows investors and homeowners to reach their full potential. The company is also known for their flexible payment terms that would enable a more convenient purchasing process for the prospective buyer.

Empire East’s breakthrough residential concepts are also highly sellable. Some of its developments are directly connected to main railway transport, branded as Transport-Oriented Developments (TOD).

These include Little Baguio Terraces in San Juan City, situated between Gilmore and J. Ruiz stations of LRT-2, as well as Pioneer Woodlands in Mandaluyong City, right beside MRT-3 Boni station. Other concepts involve luxury resorts like Kasara Urban Resort Residences and The Rochester, both in Pasig City, as well as Mango Tree Residences in San Juan City.
