Now that working remotely is as accessible as ever, many of us are moving outside the city to leave behind the concrete jungle in exchange for fresh air and proximity to nature. A recent Santos Knight Frank survey corroborates this pandemic-driven shift, with 33% of respondents now preferring to live in the suburbs, in search of low-density environments and wellness-related features.
Yet before you pack your bags and turn your back on the city for good, you might want to check SM Development Corporation (SMDC)’s Vine Residences. As the name suggests, this prime gated community lies at the heart of Novaliches in Quezon City, complete with all the amenities for those who wish to live among lush greeneries and quaint spaces. A testament to its world-class features are the awards it won at the PropertyGuru Philippines Property Awards in 2021 — Best Upper Affordable Condo and Best Landscape Architectural Design.
Here, you can enjoy basking in the serenity only nature can bring — without having to look far and wide, or to break the bank.
Commit to a Purposeful Lifestyle at the Vine Nature Park
Named “Best Developer” in the PropertyGuru Philippines Property Awards both in 2020 and 2021, SMDC has been known in the industry for its commitment to sustainability. They exemplify this time and time with developments that provide safe and secure spaces, with vast, green spaces that encourage environmental stewardship and social connectedness.
At Vine Residences, this means various amenities strewn around what they call the “Vine Nature Park” that help you lead not just a healthy, active lifestyle but rather, a fulfilling one. There’s an eco and jogging trail where you can brisk walk or jog safely, day and night. There’s a private volleyball and basketball court too, where you can play friendly or competitive sports matches with your friends and family.
The best part, though, is the development’s very own Camp Hill Site, where you can spend intimate moments with your loved ones, surrounded by priceless gifts of nature. Imagine having long, tireless days of work or school – only for you to retreat to an enchanting campsite, literally a few steps away from your doorstep.
Nurture your family alongside nature
Did you know that living close to nature helps reduce stress levels, improves your mood, and has significant positive effects on children’s emotional, physical, and psychological well-being?
Now more than ever, health is of the essence. This goes hand-in-hand with the Santos Knight Frank study, which noted that open spaces, good air quality, and good views are now among the most important home considerations.
Luckily, SMDC has long been at the forefront of addressing Filipino homebuyers’ needs. Vine Residences boasts of a “Central Park,” where you will be greeted with sunken gardens, and easily, the most captivating landscapes you will ever see in vertical residential development. Tranquil waters and spaces for meditation await you at the expansive swimming pools. There’s an outdoor children’s play zone too, to help mold and nourish your young ones.
Even more, Vine Residences is located inside the SM City Novaliches complex, giving you that extra exercise as you walk to a plethora of the area’s best restaurants, retail stores, and entertainment options. It’s also strategically located near reputable educational and health institutions, as well as major thoroughfares and transport hubs.
These, all together, make Vine Residences just the perfect place to raise your family.
Nowhere homier than the ‘Home of the Good Guys’
SMDC prides itself as the “Home of the Good Guys,” and it shows in every touchpoint the residents have every day in the community. From the holistic features of each and every development to the kind of security, safety, upkeep their property management team provides, to reliable internet connectivity, weekend markets, health and wellness caravans, and job caravans – SMDC encompasses true hallmarks of nation-building.
Choosing Vine Residences as your home, therefore, not only means making yourself privy to the good SMDC is doing for the country. You’re also given a chance to live in a community that empowers you to do more good, day by day.
Now is the best time to invest in real estate
According to Colliers Philippines, the Philippine property sector is set to see a positive year driven by the uptick in economic activity. “While we saw initial headwinds at the start of the year, especially [with] the spread of the Omicron variant, the gradual return of foreign professionals and turnaround in business and consumer confidence should help fuel the take-up of more residential units,” said Colliers Philippines Associate Director for Research Joey Roi Bondoc said.
Today’s economic landscape, therefore, makes up the ideal environment to invest in real estate. Santos Knight Frank backed this claim by encouraging investors to buy now while many government infrastructure projects are coming onstream. For Vine Residences, the completion of MRT-7 and the Mega Manila Subway not only means added convenience for residents but rather, a generous increase in property values.
Colliers also reported expecting a rise in rent starting this year, which will be beneficial for those who might want to lease out their units. SMDC offers a worry-free leasing experience for interested investors with comprehensive leasing management services via SMDC Prime Key Leasing.
Vine Residences is ready for occupancy (RFO) property, which means you can move right in, or start generating passive income in an instant.
With sprawling green spaces in a well-integrated, cosmopolitan community, Vine Residences offers a lifestyle you cannot find anywhere else in the metro.
