Three Great Retirement Properties for Sale Near Metro Manila

When it comes to homes for retirees, what typically comes to mind for many are either beachside properties, a place on the farm, or homes simply located in the province. Some simply prefer the laid-back lifestyle afforded to them by a home far from the city–the peace and quiet they’ve duly earned upon their retirement.

Similar to how no two properties are the same, however, so too do the preferences of homeseekers. As much as there are those who’d like to enjoy their retirement far from the hustle and bustle of the busy city, there are also those who’d like at least around the metropolis to be near their families and friends and simply enjoy urban living even if they are no longer part of the “rat-race.”

If you consider yourself among the latter or have family or friends in search of a home for sale in or near Metro Manila that they can retire in or simply want to move to, the following are some properties presently listed on Ohmyhome Philippines that may fit the bill and more.

Tagaytay

One of the Philippines’ leading destinations for domestic tourism thanks to its scenery and cool climate, Tagaytay is a worthwhile place to settle in. It offers the “provincial peace and quiet” sought by many retirees, yet is comparatively close enough to Metro Manila for those who don’t want to live too far away as it is only 59 kilometers away via Aguinaldo Highway. 

Tourist and commercial sites in Tagaytay include the SM Sky Ranch, Ayala Malls Serin, Halfway Zoo, Robinsons Summit Ridge, Picnic Grove Complex, People’s Park in the Sky, Robinsons Summit Ridge, and the Mahogany Market. 

The component city’s popularity as a tourist destination makes it slightly more costly to live in compared to other similar locales, but the cost of fruits and vegetables is significantly less than compared to the metro thanks to Tagaytay’s vicinity to farms which the supply comes from. The green scenery, views of Taal Lake, and proximity to Laguna and Batangas also make the city something of a central location that is worth investing a property in.

Views of Tagaytay are best enjoyed in a condominium, even more so when it is centrally located and is easy to get to and from the aforementioned tourist and commercial sites in the city.

This one-bedroom condo for sale in SMDC’s Wind Residences is one such home. Fully furnished and equipped with air-conditioning and water heater, the unit is ideal for retirees who want a low-maintenance place that is within a community with comprehensive amenities, and in a city that is laid-back yet modern at the same time, and is easy to visit frequently for their family and friends who are based in Metro Manila.

For those in search of a little more room to live in, this two-bedroom condo for sale in Tagaytay Serin West is another option currently available in the city. The home is a viable choice for homeseekers who enjoy spending time outdoors. Among the low-rise development’s amenities are adult and kiddie swimming pools, children’s play area, and gardens and open spaces that are complemented by views of the Taal Volcano and the Batangas mountain range.

Antipolo City

On the northern borders of Metro Manila, on the other hand, is the province of Rizal, which is another popular place to live when wanting to continue accessing the National Capital Region but be in a place that takes on a little more of a relaxed pace and is a little bit more affordable to live in. 

Located just 26-kilometers to the east of Metro Manila, Antipolo–the capital city of Rizal–is arguably the best place to look for a home to retire in that is near the metro. Alternatively recognized as the “Pilgrimage Capital of the Philippines”, it is the location of many churches and cathedrals. In addition to the numerous religious landmarks are numerous cafes, overlooking establishments, and notable nature spots that make for the perfect retirement setting.

Another reason for Antipolo being a worthwhile place to invest in a home is its developable land. Compared to Metro Manila, Antipolo and the rest of Rizal have more developable land, providing home seekers with more house and lot options as well as the opportunity to build their dream home from the ground up on a vacant property. The newest among these houses and lots for sale are often located in gated communities and subdivisions, which give residences a secure place to live with walkable spaces and a number of amenities.

A great example of such a property is a four-bedroom house and lot for sale in San Jose Heights. A community located in Barangay San Jose in Antipolo City and part of the Robinsons East range of developments, San Jose Heights is within convenient distance to places like the Unciano Medical Center, SM Hypermarket, and Vista Mall Antipolo, among others.

Priced at Php5 million, the home offers great value through its four bedrooms, three bathrooms and fixtures, and parking space, to name a few. The home is an ideal place to move in not only for retirees but those who want to move to a large and affordable home that can accommodate their family or their need for room for a home office or remote learning space.
