Relocating to the suburbs and securing an ideal property for a new home has been ever more enticing to homebuyers due to the prevalence of blended and flexible working setup that prompted many Filipinos to spend more time at home.

According to Lamudi's latest report reassessing real estate market preferences in the first quarter of 2021, houses remain the most popular property type while low-cost housing became the most attractive price point to potential buyers. The report also saw that property seekers over the age of 65 showed the most optimistic growth figures in the first quarter.

With property buyers opting for a safer, healthier, and more spacious place, one real estate development firm sure has set its name in the countryside and is ready to aggressively deliver on its promise to enhance the quality of life for Filipino families in the “new normal” with premium homes and a wide array of innovative property developments — Don Tim Development Corp. (DTDC).

DTDC has claims to over 70 hectares of property located in key areas of Cavite, which is divided among four residential subdivision projects, namely Alta Monte, Monte Vista, Montebello, and South Midland.

Reshaping the Countryside Living

Its first successful residential project was in 1990 with Monte Vista, the first residential subdivision to rise in Tagaytay. The 18-hectare project offers a panoramic view of Taal’s mountain ranges as it is perched on the famous Tagaytay Ridge.

For its second dream project, DTDC explored the first-class landlocked municipality of Silang, Cavite, and started the first phase of an ambitious 11.3-hectare ‘haven in the middle of the town's subdivision project called South Midland. According to DTDC, with the first phase almost done, it will soon introduce the second phase of South Midland, covering a total land area of 13 hectares.

Following the success of early developments, DTDC proceeded with its flagship project — Alta Monte. Strategically situated along Magallanes Drive, the 13-hectare village allows residents to enjoy some peace and quiet and bask in the serene atmosphere set off by the cool climate and the picturesque beauty of Tagaytay City's highlands while still providing ease of access to the city proper. The Alta Monte Subdivision offers a total of 218 generously sized lots ranging from 300 to 600 sqm at a relatively affordable price. Aside from the house and lot or lot only offering, DTDC opened a low-density condominium project called The Leisure Suites within Alta Monte to accommodate those looking to experience the convenience of condo-living and the exhilarating natural beauty of the countryside.

DTDC’s mission to provide quality homes to Filipinos is far from over as it works on Montebello, a paradise for anyone looking to indulge in both the blissful life outside the metro and the thriving greeneries and mesmerizing ridges that Tagaytay is known for. Montebello is an expansive 15.4-hectare residential boutique development along Alfonso, Cavite. Through this development, DTDC aims to provide balikbayans, expatriates, OFWs, and retirees a home not only worth retiring in but also worth settling in. This subdivision divided into 517 lots ranging from 177 to 368 sqm is home to DTDC's two new offerings. First is the Lilac Twins, a space-efficient duplex bungalow unit designed to be senior citizen- and PWD-friendly. The second is the larger two-storey single attached house and lot called Daisy.

The Premier Developer of Choice

Don Tim Development Corp. is one of the Philippines' emerging premier property developers. Founded in 1981 to hold the assets of the Don Tim Group, which had been building businesses across various industries since the early 1960s, DTDC was able to successfully venture into residential development under the leadership of Agustin Leong. After years of being in the industry providing quality living with the breathtaking Cavite in the backdrop, the firm has undoubtedly earned the buyer’s trust through its premium housing developments, inclusive amenities, reasonable prices, strategic and convenient locations, and customer-oriented service.
