    Default Philippines' top 10 investment areas

    The Philippines' traditional regional centers may soon be outstripped by fast-emerging metro areas in other regions as investment sites.

    A study made by CREBALAND president Dr. Nathaniel Von Einsiedel ~ former CREBA president, member of CREBA's Council of Leaders, and former United Nations regional director for urban planning ~ details the economic and demographic characteristics that indicate the tremendous potential of these emerging growth centers.

    Painting a much more positive picture than the current national politico-economic conditions suggest, Dr. Einsiedel's study shows that the top 10 metro areas for investment are Laguna, General Santos, East Bulacan, Davao, Central Cavite, Malaybalay-Valencia (Bukidnon), Dumaguete, Rizal, Malolos and Cebu.

    Thumbs up

    echir; Thanks for posting the good news, the Philippines' Top Ten Investment Areas, etc. I'm so happy Dumaguete City is one of those areas. It's nice to know though.

    @BAZ:

    I am only afraid that they will increase the price once they read your post,

    Good Luck with your dream property.

    That's actually true Baz ,prices of properties has already taken off in dumaguete and surrounding areas.If you seriously consider living closer in dumaguete ,this is the time now to look for some properties . Time in 2004 we look at Bacong beach properties ,and there were 3 down on offer lining bacong beach.The best one we like happened to be near DUCOME . My cousin who helped us search these properties few months before we arrived said the price per Square meter of this beach lots range from P400 -500/sq meter,which we were very keen on to look at .When we get there it so happened a French guy bought a beach lot few months earlier adjacent to the one on offer to us.We meet the daughter of the land owner and she increased her price to 750/sq meter . But that was P400 /sq meter few months before,almost doubled the price perhaps due to the French guy taking grounds nearby . The reality sits in there was also a relative of the family still living in the lower end of the beach lot which was grumbling /ranging war to the family which meant to sell the land ,there seem to be family dispute going on for the beach lot of 3,044 sq/meters land area ,a nice size.It's nice location , closer to dumaguete,however it was a low lying plot and nearer the Nitrate Plant and DUCOME coconuty oil processing plant .

    Of the time we searched on ,we went for a diff lot in the end.But this is the trend now,once an OFW or foreigner buys land ,the neighborhood lots has 99 % chance of increasing the price for the next buyer,making the area pricey.You better find your place soon,before all good locations in Dumaguete and places nr Dumaguete are taken or priced up.

    WILL GET THE WIFE TO DO ALL THE DEALING WITH BUYING A PROPERTY AS THE DOLLARS SIGNS IN THE EYES OF THE PERSON SELLING PROPERTY WILL ROLL IN THE HEAD IF THEY SEE ME A WHITE MAN INTERESTED.
    GOT TOLD THAT THEY WRITE THE PRICE WITH A FORK (4 points on fork)IF THEY KNOW ITS A WHITE MAN INTERESTED ha ha.

    That's a good idea , prices might still be lowered down if dealt with a Filipino face . I know this is a really bad practice happening around when they inflate the price whenever there is a foreigner who bought property nearby or a rich chinese ,almost everyone think their land value also goes up with it .Another foreigner added ,and another and on and on,the prices of property goes sky high.Sad thing but true and most people here will admit that local filipinos can never afford to live in those favorable areas anymore as land prices are past beyond every average filipinos' pockets and means ,only in exception on inherited properties ,that comes free to any filipino heir or heiress .But this is an issue , I would not bow down only for the principle of not inflating the price in dumaguete ,to get off from our whims to live near the city only because I am affiliated with a white.What is in question here is the general attitude of some filipinos that needed overhauling in relation to pricing their lands that makes some sense.
