When it comes to real estate investment, location is arguably the most important factor to consider. It arguably spells the difference between success and failure of one’s real estate property investment. To further drive home this fact, one common saying in the real estate industry is when buying a house, the three most important factors are location, location, and location.
One can argue that there is really no failure when it comes to real estate property investment, since land values appreciate over time. However, if one is keen on maximizing his profits and monetary investment in real estate properties, he should think hard about the locations where he intends to purchase houses, condominiums, idle lands, and the likes. Especially during this COVID-19 pandemic, where economic contraction or recession is the norm, one must be extra careful as to where to place and invest his hard-earned money.
Why is location so vital to the success of a real estate property investment? If you think about it, the cost and condition of any home can vary. Even the size of a home can be altered, given a few modifications. However, one thing you cannot change is a home’s location. In many cases, great location can change an entire neighborhood overnight. For example, a once sleepy village can transform into a busy one after a shopping mall or a train station is built within its vicinity.
Real estate property investment is also governed by the laws of supply and demand. Properties in great locations can afford to charge higher leases or rents due to the fact that there is an existing great demand versus a limited supply. We can make a case that location creates desirability, appeal, and attractiveness. Desirability engenders demand, and demand raises real estate profits. This is why one of the best-selling points proffered by real estate companies such as Bria Homes is the desirability of the location of its housing developments.
So the next question is what are the best real estate property investment locations in the Philippines?
Here are fourteen (14) of the prime real estate locations in the country, from 2020 onwards:
Pangasinan is lodged in a strategic geo-political position in the central plain of Luzon. It is for this reason that Pangasinan has been labeled as a doorway to northern Luzon, boasting of lengthy road networks. Salt production is the chief source of income, and Pangasinan’s name itself translates as a “place of salt.” But the local economy has since expanded into different industries. It is in fact the economically wealthiest province in the whole of Ilocos Region.
Its robust economy makes Pangasinan a great location for real property investment. If you are searching for a viable real estate property in the province, you should take into account Bria Homes Alaminos, Pangasinan in Alaminos, home of the Hundred Islands National Park. The Alaminos Airport is also being constructed to accommodate air travel.

Immense sugar and rice fields also dominate Tarlac’s land area, living up to its reputation as one of the rice granaries of the Philippines.
