Top 3 Home Options near Metro Manila


The property sector is amongst the most resilient industries in this time of the pandemic. This is driven by the truth that buying House and Lot is the core of every Filipino family’s aspirations. Buying real estate properties is also one of the driving factors for Overseas Filipino Workers to work abroad. 

House and Lot for the family is on top of the property choices, while condominium offers an opportunity for rental and property appreciation considering its location and proximity to the major establishment and commercial districts. Prior to this pandemic, the market saw a trend of overseas Filipinos investing in vertical developments as income replacement with its rental potential and property appreciation.  

In the metros, while condominium has become most preferred, quarantine protocols imposed by the government last year to avert the spread of the virus opened more opportunities to residential developments outside the Metro Manila. Those confined in limited spaces during the lockdowns have learned to realize the value of space and the importance of green spaces. In an article published by Philippine Star, Mr. Nicolas Mapa of ING Bank Manila said, “The Philippines is mirroring the global exodus from major cities, with city dwellers trading their flats for the clean and green of the suburbs outside the concrete jungle”. 

Considering this and the on-set of work from home set up, we saw an upward trend of interests in House and Lot for Sale and Lots for Sale in the fringes of Metro Manila locations like Antipolo, Rizal in the east, Pampanga in the North and the favorite residential hub, Cavite in the South. The wider green spaces and emerging road networks are among their considerations. Property Management Company Santos Knight Frank also reported that these areas have recorded an increase of home buyers looking for house and lot and lots only for sale in the last quarter of 2020.  

Homebuyers in this area are actively looking for houses with wide extra lots. Others are looking for Lots for Sale with the chance to build homes that best fit the need of their respective families. Homebuyers with existing properties are also on the lookout for residential lots for sale as a form of land banking for re-sell purposes or as a future inheritance.  


Over the years, Cavite is always an option for people looking for affordable house and lot but still wanting to be near workplaces in Metro Manila.
