Bonifacio Global City (BGC) is probably not how the majority would picture a typical Metro Manila city; here, the traffic is well-maintained and there is little to no flooding because of well-made stress and irrigation systems by its developers, Ayala Land and Evergreen Holdings. BGC has become a force to be reckoned with in terms of both business and residential options since other business districts have either become too pricey or crowded.

In fact, American commercial real estate service company Cushman & Wakefield predicts that BGC will become the country’s primary financial hub in the near future as big knowledge process outsourcing (KPO) companies such as JP Morgan Chase & Co. and HSBC dominate it [1]. Since these and other international companies are flocking the area, there will always be a demand for commercial and office spaces, thus making BGC one of the best cities to invest in.

2. Makati City

No matter how much time passes, Makati will always be the original investment capital in the country. Not only is one of the largest business districts found here, but its clever location also makes it accessible to neighboring flourishing cities. Makati is also home to over 60,000 international commercial and business establishments, which means there are various residential options to cater to workers and employees. Moreover, the headquarters of large multinational corporations are also established here, thus making the land value of both commercial and office spaces steady and profitable [2].

3. Quezon City

Not only is Quezon City (QC) one of the largest cities in the entire country, it is also one of the best locations for real estate investment. One of the most inviting factors QC has to offer is a well-rounded but not too congested lifestyle. It has popular business areas like Eastwood City and Quezon Avenue, some of the country’s top schools such as University of the Philippines Diliman and Ateneo de Manila University, and numerous international companies and condominium properties. As proof of its potential, Singapore’s found in a study that Quezon City is amongst the highest when it comes to condo gross rental yield [3].

4. Pasay City

Pasay City is one of the areas that has flourished the most in the recent years thanks to several thriving developments, most notably Bay City for both foreigners and expats [4]. This is enhanced by Ayala Land Incorporated’s (ALI) project which promises to make Pasay “the country’s most modern business, residential, and recreational district.” Resorts World Manila, which is located in Newport City, is also the home of international hotels, casinos, bars, and restaurants, and it contributes to making the demand for spaces, either commercial or residential, high.

5. Pasig City

Pasig City is not only one of the most liveable cities in the county, but also a real estate haven with 132,640 square meters of its central business district—Ortigas Center—solely dedicated for office use as of 2014 [5]. Ortigas Center is also where a lot of international BPO and IT companies can be found. In addition to this, Pasig is also a well-known lifestyle hub where restaurant, leisure, and shopping options are readily available and accessible. Since the city is populated by both young professionals and growing families, there is also no shortage of residential options in the area.

Now that you are educated on where you should put your hard-earned money on, you can now safely invest in these areas and watch your profits rise.
