Why Invest in Crosswinds Today?
A smart investor has a lot of factors to consider when deciding where to put his hard-earned money. An ideal investment of course is one which can give you high returns in a certain period of time. Some choose to be shareholders and invest in public or private corporations from different industries across the globe, while other’s way of investing is through banks or stocks.
After nearly a year with the new normal to prevent the spread of COVID-19, various industries have struggled with the difficulties brought forth by this pandemic. Production in factories have gone down, restaurants experienced a sudden decrease in diners, and face to face interaction became limited and heavily discouraged, even for important business meetings. Despite this, companies have learned to adapt new ways and strategies and turned their struggles into new opportunities. Efficiency has slowly gone back up and business owners introduced new apps and improved their websites and online presence to accommodate their new business processes. Virtual interaction is now the new norm when conversing with customers and potential clients.
Amidst these industries, Real Estate is one industry that has proven resilient and is now showing signs of recovery. Despite the pandemic, Colliers International, a professional services and investment management company that provides expert advice on real estate, observed a steady demand for horizontal projects in key areas outside of Metro Manila like Pampanga, Cavite, Laguna and Batangas. Colliers also noted that investors are now looking for homes with larger living spaces and open areas.1
Brittany Corporation, an upscale brand of Vista Land and one of the leading developers in the Philippines, offers luxury residential communities located in master planned enclaves in the South, ideal for these investors searching for opportunities in the real estate. One of its most promising developments is Crosswinds, a uniquely-themed Swiss-inspired community in Tagaytay.
Crosswinds is a 100-hectare development offering an array of luxury homes within the community, from Ready for Occupancy homes, Ready Lots, and Condominiums, to Pre-selling projects in the area. Investors or families looking for their future vacation home or next grand investment can opt for a unit at the pre-selling condominium of Crosswinds, Alpine Villas. Alpine Villas is a midrise condominium offering studio and 1-Bedroom units, and is strategically located close to the commercial area within Crosswinds. Unit owners from these buildings can enjoy a spectacular view of Tagaytay while being surrounded by 35,000 pine trees. Residents can easily take a walk to dine in at the newly-opened themed café, Ruined Project, and other rising commercial projects nearby.
If they would rather build their own vacation home and have a panoramic view of the skyline, Terraces of Lausanne offers lots located at the highest peak of Crosswinds with over 24 hectares of land in total.
So why is investing now in Brittany Corporation’s Crosswinds Tagaytay a good move? First, an investment in Crosswinds now means investors are able to take advantage of the lower market value specifically for the pre-selling condominium units and lots. 2021 will be a year of recovery for the real estate market so investors should not expect property prices to go down any time soon. Colliers International said that they expect prices and rents to recover in the first half of 2021 and by the end of the year they project prices and rent to grow by 1.7% and 2.1% respectively.2 Also, investing in a pre-selling property is a better option compared to time deposits for example, because of its higher capital appreciation. Second, one of the most important, if not the most important, factors to consider in real estate investment is the location. Crosswinds is located in one of the country’s top tourist destinations, Tagaytay, which makes it an attractive address to those looking for luxury vacation homes. It is the perfect area for a quick getaway from the bustling Metro. Lastly, an investment in Crosswinds Tagaytay can also be a passive generating income in the future once the property is completed and everything normalizes. The premium condominium units and even the luxury houses can eventually be rented out to those vacationing in Tagaytay should the owners not occupy them.
With the expected increase in demand in the luxury segment of residential properties as projected by Colliers International3, as well as future developments soon to rise within and close to the area, there’s no better time to invest than today.
