There are many types of popular Philippine homes in the country today. Other than the typical house, other housing types such as apartments, condominiums, and townhouses have also become very popular among many Filipinos. The reason why these types of housing became popular is because of their benefits in which residents can take advantage of.

However, these advantages can also work as a disadvantage for many of their residents. So what are the advantages of these types of housing? And what are their disadvantages for most people?

Condominiums have become one of the most popular types of housing in the Philippines. Although condominiums were only recently introduced in the Philippines compared to apartments and townhouses, its popularity quickly grew in the market, particularly among the wealthy.

One apparent reason why condominiums became popular is because of their location, which is normally found in business and commercial districts. Because of their location, residents are given the luxury of living within walking distance to their workplaces or other popular entertainment areas.

However, the disadvantage of these types of condominiums is their expensiveness. Most people that lives in these condominiums are the wealthy as well as the executives working in nearby corporations or companies.

Another disadvantage of these types of Philippine homes is its environment, which is not suitable for a growing Filipino family. Though these condominiums can provide the privacy and peace that their residents needed, it may not still be appropriate for growing children.

Townhouses are much similar to houses in terms of location as well as benefits. Townhouses in the Philippines are mostly found in the suburbs or in the outskirts, mostly found along houses. However, the advantage of townhouses from these typical houses is their design, which is much more luxurious looking compared to houses.

The disadvantage, however, is that most of these townhouses are very expensive, similar to that of condominiums in the city. Another is that some of these types of Philippine homes are found in the outskirts, which may not be appropriate for those people working in the city.

Apartments are still very popular in the Philippines, particularly the many new apartment buildings founded across Metro Manila. The reason for its popularity is its affordability. Compared to buying a house, a condo unit, or a townhouse unit, people could easily find a suitable living space in apartments without having to invest too much.

A number of new apartments, such as the one/two/three bedroom apartments, have also been made available which can provide Filipino families with an appropriate living space, yet provide the accessibility they need to get to their work. However, apartments are normally rented, meaning residents donít have any right to modify their units. Residents may also be evicted by their landlord.
