A Better Home, Back Home: Why Cebuanos Living Abroad Should Invest in Property in Their Hometown

While more and more Filipinos leave the Philippines in search for greener pastures abroad, many of these internationally-based Pinoys find themselves establishing new roots in their cities of origin back at home by potentially investing in properties, with hopes to build either a vacation stay for their yearly returns, to develop a real estate business as a supplement to their earnings, or to move the families they have left behind. No matter what the reason, Filipino migrants know that there’s no place like home—and the reward of working abroad feels even better when they come back and find themselves and their families in a better position than when they left. In Metropolitan Cebu, real estate has come to be one of the best investments for any self-starter, as the premier metropolis of the South shows no signs of stopping in the realm of commerce and urban growth. Now home to bustling business parks, state of the art hospitals, renowned schools, world-class F&B establishments, and one of the newest and most beautiful international airports in Asia. Metro Cebu is a vibrant area that will holds its mettle as a highly livable and comfortable home for its present and future residents.

Part of Cebu’s urbanized framework is Mandaue City, and independent city known as the Philippines’ furniture center and the “little rich city” of the province, due to its 10,000 industrial and commercial locations. Along with Cebu City and Lapu-Lapu, Mandaue reaps the benefits of Cebu’s vast modernization, but remains to be a worthy investment area for Cebuano migrants as it is still strategically located away from major growth points within Cebu—retaining its quiet and decongested location. One such landmark of modern yet peaceful living in Cebu is Amaia Steps Mandaue, a key development by Ayala Land. Ideal for first-time property investors, Amaia Steps Mandaue consists of two buildings with nine floors each, housing 576 residential units available in either studio-type or one-bedroom sizes. Defining the start of better and brighter living, the property is composed of a swimming pool for kids and families, function areas for reunions and special occassions, and a jogging path to promote health and wellness. Known for its tagline “dare to dream,” Amaia Steps Mandaue is an ideal first step for Filipino migrants who desire to make big-ticket investments with their hard-earned money back home.

This March 17-23, Ayala Land International takes a two-city tour of the Middle East to introduce Amaia Steps Mandaue to Cebuanos and other Filipinos looking to invest in the Queen City. From March 17-19, Ayala Land International will be at Swissotel Al Ghurair in Deira, Dubai to give expert property advice and present real estate investment opportunities to Pinoy’s in the area. The same presentation will be held at Grand Millenium Al Wahda Hotel in Abu Dhabi from March 24 to 26. As 2023 enters its second quarter, worthy Ayala Land properties await Filipinos who want to start investing in the home they have always wanted.
