Some of the many reasons home buyers in the Philippines look outside Metro Manila for their house and lots or condominiums is primarily because of the stresses of a densely-populated area and, of course, some pretty high property prices.
End-users are always looking at properties either on the outskirts of the city center and in neighboring provinces. A house and lot in Cavite, in particular, appeals to buyers simply because it is significantly less expensive and it has that provincial, laid-back charm. Cavite properties also offer communities that get them access to major road networks and commercial conveniences.
The cost of living for families is manageable, too. According to cost-of-living-database Numbeo, the average price per square meter of a house and lot in Cavite is about 80% less costly than one in Metro Manila’s city centers.
A city in Cavite that first comes to mind for urban dwellers is Tagaytay. Who wouldn’t want to live in a house for sale in Tagaytay, right? The cool climate, access to national road networks, and upland lifestyle are ideal for most families.
Still, properties here can still cost a little too much for the average Filipino buyer. To put things into perspective, to buy an apartment in Manila, a buyer would be paying ₱188,302.92 per square meter in the city center. In Tagaytay, it’s about ₱269,097.76. Yes, a homebuyer would be paying more per square meter for a Tagaytay property.
Imus can be a great place to buy property, too. But for that upland feel, the next best thing might just be Silang. This first-class municipality in Cavite is Tagaytay’s “twin” neighbor. It has that same charm minus the high property costs.
Cavite properties also have good appreciation rates. According to data from Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, the growth rate for residential property prices in areas like Cavite and Laguna increased by 9.6% in 2020. This makes buying a house and lot in Cavite a solid long-term investment, as well.
Communities like MetroGate Silang Estates and Verona are perfect for families that want to reside in Silang. With direct access to Emilio Aguinaldo Highway, a house and lot for sale in Silang here comes with ample space and recreational amenities. These projects also provide its residents with open spaces and security for maximum comfort.
The locations are also quite near SM City Dasmariñas, De La Salle University-Dasmariñas, and the DLSU Medical Center. It only takes about a 30-minute drive. Families can spend their free time going to Tagaytay, too. How far are these areas from the South’s premier vacation hub? These communities happen to only be about 20 minutes away from it.
