The reason why Davao has become a reason for attraction, is because the products are not expensive, traffic is moderate when compared to the Metro Manila, which is an urbanized city. The traffic is moderate even when it is compared to Cebu and the weather that Davao receives all year, is good as well. Davao’s crime rates are low, which makes it a very attractive place to live. The reason why investors want to invest here is because of the potential they saw and the opportunity to launch different projects. The schools in Davao are the best, and this makes living in condominiums, an ideal thing to do. Another reason of preferring condominiums is that, the subdivisions where houses are offered are located in a faraway place, which makes travelling back and forth, inconvenient.
Making The ChoiceIn order to live in a condominium, you have to research and then make a choice. The main two things that people look for, when they chose a condominium, is that it is close by, which makes the commute convenient, and it is accessible. If you are already living in a house, and you are switching to a condominium, then that should have a solid reason right? The reason most people leave a house and look for a condominium is the location.
Condominium can give people a good location, good furniture and a hi-tech system, which in turn gives them the security that they can’t turn away from. Also, condominiums give people a wonderful view to the outside world. If you are purchasing a unit, then you need to make a list of things that you want in a condominium and for this, do a little research. Research specifically about why are developers so interested in Davao, and then gain an insight into their projects that they have developed in other places. There are good chances that the projects that they are doing in Davao, are similar to the ones that they have done elsewhere. It will provide you with a perspective, which you need in order to buy a condominium.
InvestmentWhen you are conducting a research into the developers, you need to look into the design of the condominiums, their size, the amenities that the residents will be offered and the location of condominiums.

When you have narrowed down your selection, then you can visit the developers and the model units, which they have developed to show potential customers.
When you go to a developer, they usually have agents to show potential customers their model units. When you meet a property specialist, you should go with your gut feeling.

When you talk to them, make sure that they have the answers to your questions; the answers are based on facts and figures, they are relevant and honest.
