There are many types of Philippine homes available across the country today, and some of the most popular that many Filipinos have pointed out are condominiums and the typical house. Because of today’s modern and fast-paced lifestyles, condominiums have become very popular among many Filipinos.

However, though condominiums have significantly gained a lot of recognition in the market, houses are still considered as one of the many popular types of housing across the country, particularly because houses are aimed to providing housing for the middle to the lower class. So what makes these types of housing popular in the Philippines?

A home for the wealthy
According to many Filipinos, its common understanding that only the wealthy can afford to live in a condominium, which makes anyone living in a condo unit rich. This understanding is true in many parts of the country, particularly in Metro Manila.

What made these types of housing so expensive that only the wealthy can afford to buy it is because most of these types of Philippine homes are found in business and commercial districts, such as in Makati City or in Ortigas, Pasig City.

However, other than its luxurious living space, these types of condominiums are known for their other luxury, which is allowing their residents to live within walking distance or mass transit distance to their workplaces, which is a kind of luxury rarely seen in other types of housing, particularly with houses. However, houses do have their own advantages in which condominiums lack. One of which is its affordability.

A home for the masses
According to many experts, the reason why houses are still popular in the Philippines is because of its affordability. Unlike condominiums, houses are far more affordable, allowing a larger market to have a house of their own. However, other than its affordability, houses do have other advantages.

Although not as popular in terms of location, houses can provide Filipinos with suitable Philippine homes for their family. This is because houses are mostly found in the suburbs. Although condominium complexes, a new type of condominiums in the Philippines, are known to provide the same family-oriented environment that houses are known for, many Filipinos still chooses a house because of its affordability, as well as with its accessibility to business and commercial districts compared to condominium complexes.

Another new feature that many new houses are known for is its amenities. Similar to condominium complexes, new housing communities are also known for their amenities such as swimming pools, recreational parks, and playgrounds. And compared to condominium complexes, these new houses are far more affordable.
