Choosing The Perfect Home For You

Choosing The Perfect Home For You

Author: Deirdre Gonzales

What is the best philippines homes for your preference? Choosing a house should always depend on your own preference. If you’re a non-married, working person, then a house near or inside a business district is perfect for you. If you have a family, or just wanted to get out from busy streets of a city, then the perfect house for you or your family would be those which are found outside of big cities, in beautiful and relaxing places. But if you want both luxury and accessibility to major cities, then there are houses perfect for you. So what are these houses?

A house for the single, working folks
For those that works almost around the clock as well as a bachelor or a bachelorette, then condominium buildings and apartment buildings are perfect for you. Usually, condominium and apartment buildings are found inside a major city, in small footprints, such as those found in Makati City. However, there is a difference between these two. Although these types of philippines homes are similar in physical form, they are different in terms of ownership.

If you have the right budget to buy house, let’s say P500,000 to P1,000,000, then I suggest buying a condo unit in those locations. This investment doesn’t only allow you to be within walking distance from cities and major commercial areas, but it does also give a sense of permanence in terms of residence. But if you don’t have that kind of capital, then an apartment unit is right for you. Because apartment units are only rented or leased to tenants, Filipinos could easily find a residence near cities and major commercial areas without having to pay too much.

A house for the family or relaxation
For those looking for a house which could take you away from the busy streets of the city, or just wanted to raise a family outside of major cities, then the perfect place for you would be in a townhouse or a condominium complex. Townhouse in today’s market are now found in exclusive and luxurious complexes complete with high security and resort facilities such as swimming pools, gyms, parks and playground equipment. The only disadvantage is the cost. Townhouses are perfect for small to medium size families.

Other than townhouses, condominium complexes are also very popular among Filipinos. Similar to townhouse complexes, condominium complexes are also known to offer the same amenities, such as high security, swimming pools, gyms, parks and playground equipment. The advantage of condominiums from townhouses is its affordability. However, condominium complexes are usually perfect only for small families, a couple with a single child. This is because a condominium unit is usually smaller than a townhouse.

A house for every need
The perfect house that has everything to provide you with your needs is the ordinary house. There are still many available houses across the Philippines today, particularly those found near big cities. However, their numbers are slowly dwindling and finding a suitable place to erect a house is also another issue. But these types of philippines homes are usually the best in terms of housing for a family and even for single people.
