Which is the best for your taste? A house or a condominium? For many Filipinos, particularly in today’s modern trends and fast-paced lifestyle, condominiums are normally the best type of housing for their needs.

However, there are Filipinos which finds condominiums inappropriate for their needs, which is why houses are still popular in today’s condominium-dominated market. So what are the things that allows houses to survive and strive in the market heavily dominated by modern types of housing such as condominiums and apartment buildings?

Houses are far more affordable
According to many Filipinos, the reason why houses and many new houses for sale in the Philippines are still popular in the Philippines is because of their affordability in comparison to other types of housing such as condominiums and townhouses.

Although houses in the past are known for their expensiveness, houses of today have become more affordable due to the increase of competition in the market, particularly when condominiums were introduced in the Philippine market.

Houses are more family-oriented
Compared to condominiums in the city, houses are known for their family-oriented environment which is appropriate for their growing family. This is also the reason why many new houses for sale in the Philippines have gained a lot of popularity in the market. However, many new condominiums today are said to provide the same environment appropriate for a growing family. These new types of condominiums are known as condominium complexes.

However, most of these condominium complexes are found outside Metro Manila, mostly in the outskirts or in provincial areas, while most houses are found in the suburbs, which is more accessible to business and commercial districts compared to these condominium complexes.

Another reason why many new houses for sale in the Philippines have become popular is that the housing community it normally belongs to are known for their amenities, the same amenities in which condominium complexes became popular.

According to many Filipinos, the reason why condominium complexes became popular, even though most of these are not as accessible compared to its counterpart in the city, is because of their amenities such as swimming pools, gyms, sports complexes, as well as a recreational park and playground.

However, other than condominium complexes, many new housing communities are also known for their amenities such as swimming pools and parks. However, these housing communities can provide more affordable houses compared to condominium complexes.
