Why It Makes Sense for OFWs to Invest in a Bacolod Property

If you ask overseas Filipino workers what their ultimate goal is, many would say they want to increase their standard of living. There’s no one way to achieve this, but investing in a property is one surefire way to be financially secure.

For OFWs ready to invest, property location is the next crucial point to discuss. Houses and lots in the Visayas region, particularly in Bacolod, are gaining more attention. The area has a strong real estate potential, driven by the roll-out of new infrastructure projects and the rise of mixed-use developments. 

It’s time that you fulfill your financial dreams. Here are more convincing reasons to invest in a Bacolod property: 

To Have Something to Call Your Own

Acquiring a house and lot comes with the pride of ownership. Imagine having a property under your name, plus the equity you’ll build each time you pay your monthly mortgage. One of the well-designed homes at The Fountain Grove could become a tangible reminder of your hardships and sacrifices abroad. 

In this residential community, you’ll be free to design your home the way you want to and make upgrades to increase its value. At the same time, you’ll be proud to have a property you can pass on to your children, securing them a comfortable place to live.

The Fountain Grove by Suntrust Properties, Inc. is a 24.52-hectare community bordering the cities of Bacolod and Talisay. It makes an ideal option for OFWs and their families because of its easy access to the airport road. The Fountain Grove forms part of the larger township by Megaworld Corporation, Northhill Gateway. This 53-hectare township is along the Bacolod-Silay Airport Access Road and offers the live-work-play-learn lifestyle pioneered by Megaworld.

To Build Wealth Passively

Getting returns from a property investment takes patience and time—similar to how OFWs achieve their successes abroad.

At The Fountain Grove, you can watch your home appreciate over the years. Its strategic location will likely increase its value, even if you just buy and hold or occupy the unit. The community’s proximity to an office and retail development, leisure and recreational hubs, and institutional facilities makes it a desirable neighborhood. And the more in demand it is, the higher its value will be.

But let’s say you want to make the most of your property investment at The Fountain Grove. If you’re buying a second home here, you can live in it for a few months every year and take on short-term renters staying in Bacolod for travel or business purposes. 

To Be Retirement-Ready

Meanwhile, for OFWs preparing for retirement, The Fountain Grove can be an excellent place to settle down for good. It will remind you of your adventures outside the Philippines because of its out-of-the-country vibe and charming architecture. 

The four phases of The Fountain Grove are named after famous fountains around the world: Bellagio, Trevi, Tivoli, and Montjuic. Its impressive range of amenities will also treat you to a relaxed lifestyle. These include the following:

  • Exclusive clubhouse 
  • Parks 
  • Children’s playground 
  • Lap and kiddie pools with shower rooms 
  • Open gardens 
  • Basketball court

To Promote Financial Discipline 

OFW investors are promoters of financial discipline. Often, they sacrifice everyday luxuries and make sure their money is spent efficiently. 

Perhaps you also want to set an example for your loved ones and inspire them to achieve big financial dreams. One thing you can do is seriously consider investing in a property within thriving communities like The Fountain Grove. Besides having positive cash flows, owning a unit here will help you encourage others to be wiser in spending.
