As with any case in real estate, looking for a house and lot for sale in Tagum City is mainly about location. There are other factors, of course, such as the cost, the desired land area, architecture of the house, etc. In this article, I will list the top locations in Tagum City, Davao del Norte to invest in a real estate property.
1. Barangay Apokon – Perhaps every Tagume is aware that the Apokon area is fast becoming the commercial hub in the City. Two of the biggest shopping malls in Tagum – the Gaisano Grand Mall and Davao Central Warehouse – are located here, and several bars and restaurants were recently opened. The JG Summit also announced that the company’s Robinsons chain of malls is soon to open a branch in Apokon.
But perhaps the biggest development in the area is the construction of the New City Hall of Tagum. With a 700 million pesos budget, the state-of-the-art building also features green technology – the first of its kind in the City. Real estate buyers should definitely consider Barangay Apokon, which shouldn’t be that hard, given that there are a lot of residential areas there such as the Gemini subdivision.
2. Visayan Village – If you still can’t find a suitable property for you, you might want to consider Barangay Visayan Village. It actually sits right beside Apokon Area so the benefits of owning a property here is quite the same as that of Apokon. Perhaps the only added benefit of living in Visayan Village is that it is along the Pan-Philippine Highway, which is the gateway to Davao City and Compostela Valley Province.
3. Mankilam – Barangay Mankilam is situated in the Northestern part of Tagum City, sandwiching the downtown area with Barangay Apokon. It is admittedly quite far from the areas where a lot of developments are going on. However, it still appeals to a lot of people as it is very near the public market, public terminal and the Davao del Norte Provincial Capitol – perfect for those who work in these areas.
Barangay La Filipina, which sits just beside Mankilam area, is also a good choice. However, there are not much developments in this area compared to Mankilam. La Filipina or its neighboring Barangay Nueva Fuerza is ideal if you are looking to build a farm due to its vast areas of undeveloped land.
