Many of us dream of owning a house, especially in Metro Manila. But the steep prices of properties make it difficult for average Filipinos to realize their dream.
The good news is many provinces near the metro, including Cavite, have become alternative destinations for homebuyers. While relocating seems difficult if you have been accustomed to the city life, several developments in these provinces have offered almost the same amenities found in urban communities. Lnc-thesquare.com cites the reasons you should consider buying a property in Cavite.
The expensive home prices in Metro Manila have led many Filipinos to consider buying a home in nearby provinces. In Cavite, property developers have addressed this growing demand by offering gated communities that feature urban-style facilities. Some have even built their projects near schools, hospitals, entertainment centers, and dining establishments.
Lancaster New City in Imus, for example, is just one of many developments that have sprung in Cavite. This residential community recently celebrated its 10th year anniversary. Transportation infrastructure serves as one reason behind the province’s growth, as it allowed residents not to feel too distant from Metro Manila.
Infrastructure and Jobs
Due to the South Luzon Expressway and Skyway toll roads, living in Cavite and working in Metro Manila have become possible. The recent Manila-Cavite Expressway (Cavitex) also lets you reach your destination in the metro quickly via Roxas Boulevard. The LRT 1-Cavite Extension connecting to the Baclaran terminal will soon provide another option for commuters.
If you have children, data from the Cavite government showed that the province has more than 1,800 public and private schools for elementary, secondary and tertiary education. It also has 12 government and 28 private hospitals.
Cavite seems to be a good choice for those who want to live in a more affordable home, yet still choose to work in Metro Manila. If you’re one of them, then it’s time to look for a house that fits your needs, taste, and budget.
