Choosing the perfect location for you can improve your quality of life, determine your lifestyle and monthly budget, as well as appraise the value of your property in the long run. That’s why location is often regarded as one of the most important, if not the most important, factors that homebuyers need to consider in their purchase.

So, how exactly can you use the right location for your home? Here’s a checklist.

Accessibility to essential facilities

The perfect location should be just a drive or a short commute away from essential facilities. It’s impractical to purchase a house on an isolated island or faraway mountain, especially if you’ll live in it full time. Consider the accessibility and proximity of these facilities or amenities from your house:

  • Workplaces and areas of development 
  • Hospital with an excellent healthcare system
  • Schools (from preschool to college)
  • Malls and recreational centers like parks and museums
  • Marketplace (both for dry and wet goods)
  • Banks and other financial institutions
  • Government agencies and municipal/city offices
  • Public transport system/terminal

Cost of living and daily expenses

Some regions in the country have a higher cost of living, because of their more developed economies. Even within the city or municipality, some districts have higher living expenses like the Makati Central Business District in Makati City, Bonifacio Global City in Taguig City, and Cebu Business Park in Cebu City.

Choosing a location with a moderate cost of living but still offering plenty of employment opportunities is key in your home purchase. These places are ideal locations to consider:

  • Cagayan de Oro
  • Naga
  • Cavite
  • Rizal
  • Tarlac

Environmental and neighborhood safety

Whether you live alone or with your family, safety is one of the priorities when choosing the right location. While no location is 100% safe from crimes, a place with a lower crime rate can give you more peace of mind. A gated community with 24/7 security is a great consideration, although only some places may offer them.

Environmental safety should also be on your checklist. In the Philippines, it’s almost impossible to avoid typhoons, but you can avoid the flooding and landslides that may come with it. You may also want to check fault lines, which may put you at greater risk in the future. Waste management, pollution, and green spaces are also environmental factors to consider.

One of the most common questions asked is ‘how important is location when buying a home.’ Location is the most important factor in real estate.

For starters, people must consider what they need from the place they’ll be living in. A lot of people prioritize the location of where they will stay. 

Location is key to where you belong. The majority of our decisions when it comes to where we are located come from accessibility. “Am I closer to work?” “What mall am I close to?” “Where is the closest supermarket so I can do the groceries?” Homeowners need not to worry as BellaVita community encapsulates everything that a homeowner needs by taking essential accessibility into mind.
