In recent years, the Philippine government has been pushing to decongest major metropolises like Metro Manila and Metro Cebu. This is to help minimize the rapid growth of population, aid traffic jam, and manage their vulnerability to natural disasters. More importantly, this decongestion effort is also a way to develop other locales – just like Butuan, which is now a thriving city attractive to investors and families for its economic opportunities and laidback environs. This is why houses and lots for sale in Butuan continue to boom.

A well-connected city

The de facto capital of Agusan del Norte, Butuan City is the commercial, industrial, and administrative center of the Caraga region. It is a central trading hub in Northern Mindanao as it connects to many major cities. These include Davao (via the Pan-Philippine Highway), Cagayan de Oro (via Butuan-Cagayan de Oro-Iligan Road), and Tandag in Surigao del Sur (via the Butuan-Pianing-Tandag Road). Butuan also hosts one of the busiest airports in the country, the Bancasi Airport.

In addtion to these roads, Butuan’s accessibility and overall economic activity is expected to extend further to other municipalities, thanks to several infrastructure projects scheduled for completion in the near future.

Among the upcoming roads is the Butuan-Agusan del Norte Coastal Road Project, which will connect the Masao National Port Road to the Nasipit International Port in the province. There’s also the big ticket highway-skyway road project in Caraga, the Cabadbaran City-Puting Bato-Lanuza Road. It will connect the highland tribes’ mountain range villages to the lowlands.

Indeed, Butuan’s development as a central location and continued economic activity make it an ideal place to invest in a home – be it one that is ready to occupy or built from the ground up.

A tourism capital

Being at the center, Butuan City is home to tourist spots and commercial locations. These include the Balangay Museum and the Butuan City branch of the National Museum; the Guingona, Delta Discovery, and Bood Promontory Eco parks; and the Balanghai Hotel and Convention Center, to name a few.

Butuan also abounds in natural resources and attractions. The city is widely known as the passage way of the Agusan River, the widest river in Mindanao that also happens to be the most navigable, making it a popular place to visit and, well, navigate.

Another hard-to-miss natural landmark here is Mt. Mayapay. Located southwest of the Agusan Valley, the mountain with a distinct, flat 'tabletop' summit is the place to go for views of the aforementioned Agusan River emptying into Butuan Bay through Butuan, and behind them, the mountains.

A worthwhile investment in Butuan

Despite the challenges resulting from the ongoing pandemic, Butuan remains one of the fastest developing cities in the Philippines. Major retail giants have already established themselves in the city, while national universities have also intended to found campuses in and around the city such as Father Saturnino Urios University and the Caraga State University.

Leading real estate developers have already begun construction of upscale, economic, and socialized subdivisions in the city. Locally-based developers have similarly emerged to providing socialized and economic housing to Butuan home seekers.
