There are many types of available housing in the Philippines in which many Filipinos can freely choose from. And some of the most popular today are condominiums and apartment buildings. According to many real estate experts, both types of housing became popular in the Philippines because of their location, which are normally found in business and commercial districts.

However, other than condominiums and apartment buildings, houses are still considered as one of the most popular types of housing in the Philippines. Although not as popular condominiums in today’s modern and fast-paced lifestyles, there are still a number of reasons why the typical Philippine homes are still popular among many Filipinos.

Top reasons why houses are still popular

Reason 1: Affordability
Houses have become more and more affordable in today’s market. Because of the growing competition, which is due to the steady increase of condominiums around the country, particular in Metro Manila, many houses have dropped their prices in order to compete in the market.

Many new Philippine homes today are also known for their affordability. According to many experts, the price of one condo unit in the city is said to be enough to buy a new 2-story house outside Metro Manila, along the many new housing communities around the city.

Reason 2: More family-oriented
Although many new condominiums today are known for their family-oriented nature, such as the many new condominium complexes, many Filipinos still believed that the typical house is still the best types of housing for a growing a family. Although not as luxurious as condominium complexes, these types of housing can still provide the necessary environment for a growing child, particularly with the new houses available around Metro Manila.

Reason 3: Freedom to modify
Although condominium residents own their units, their freedom to exercise their rights to modify their units are normally limited. Although condominium owners can modify their own units, they are normally required to pass a request letter stating the kind of modification they’ll do to their units, whereas owning a house gives its owners the freedom to modify the interior and exterior, as well as the land it sits on, as they please.

Reason 4: Amenities
Condominium complexes became popular because of their amenities including swimming pools, gyms, recreational parks, and playgrounds. However, other than condominium complexes, many new housing communities around the Philippines are also known for their amenities such as swimming pools and parks. However, compared to condominium complexes, Philippine homes available in these housing communities are known for their affordability.
