What are the most popular types of housings available in the Philippines today? Many Filipinos have said that condominiums are still known as some of the most popular types of modern housings in the country today, yet many others are still considering houses as the only type of housing suitable in today’s modern trends and lifestyles. So which of these types of housings are the best?
What made Condominiums Popular?
There are many reasons why condominiums had gained a lot of popularity and demand in the Philippines, according to many real estate experts. One of those is because of its flexibility. Condominiums, according to many experts, are found in two different locations, in business and commercial districts as well as in the outskirts of Metro Manila or even in the provinces.
According to many Philippine real estate experts, being in the middle of some of the busiest business districts in the Philippines, condominiums can offer its residents a home where they can easily and conveniently access their workplaces from, while maintaining the peace and privacy of living in a comfortable home.
Condominiums found in the outskirts or in the provinces, on the other hand, can offer the best home for modern Filipino families by giving them family-oriented environment and facilities geared towards the safety and growth of children. These types of condominiums are commonly known as condominium complexes.
Amenities are another reason why condominiums became popular, in which both types of condominiums can offer their own security and maintenance personnel, as well as recreational facilities such as swimming pools, gyms, and sports complexes, while condominium complexes can offer additional facilities for growing children such as parks and playgrounds.
The only disadvantage of condominiums is its expensiveness, in which only the wealthy are able to accommodate the cost of buying a condominium unit, even for those that offer installment payment terms.
What made Houses Modern?
Houses are known today as one of the most popular types of modern real estate in the Philippines. The reason why is because of the growing demand for modern family-homes. But other than just the demand itself, houses also became popular because of a number of new houses which can offer new benefits to its residents.
One benefit that made houses popular, according to many experts, is because of its location, in which most houses today are found in exclusive housing communities around the outskirts of Metro Manila or even in a number of provinces, similar to most condominium complexes. And because of this, these new houses can offer the perfect environment suitable for growing children.
The disadvantage of houses, however, is that most of these are not as luxurious compared to condominiums and condominium complexes, though most of these new houses can offer a more affordable payment term compared to those of condominiums.
