Tips For Finding The Right Home

Based on national statistics, 53% of the Philippines’ working age population are at a stage in their lives wherein they are either building a career or starting a family. However, finding a place to reside in has become taxing for most since urban centers in the central district of Metro Manila have become hubs of pollution and congestion. The rising cost of land and living also makes living difficult in the country’s central business districts.

Even with challenges like this, Metro Manila continues to be an expanding nest for commerce in Asia. That is why urban centers that used to be concentrated within the business hotbeds of Makati, Ortigas, Bonifacio Global City or Alabang are now expanding to nearby cities within the capital. As a result, real estate developers and business investors are also rapidly growing their residential and commercial projects in the outskirt cities of the metro.


One such city is Las Piñas. Known nationwide for its famous bamboo organ, salt beds and jeepney factories, it is now considered one of the fastest-growing cities in the country. What was once a quiet and rustic coastal town, it is now transformed into a bustling epicenter for large industries and residential communities.

The city’s location gives its residents easy access to employment and various sources of living. Since the early 90’s, Las Piñas has served as a gateway to CALABARZON which is an industrial region which is now the second biggest contributor to the country’s gross domestic product or GDP. Along with this, financial districts are less than an hour away since it is within the reach of super highways such as South Luzon Expressway (SLEX), Manila-Cavitex Expressway (CAVITEX), SLEX-Daang Hari and Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAX).

Residents of Las Piñas get to experience a holistic life that is more laid back in contrast to the fast-paced lifestyle of other big cities. One reason is its close proximity to weekend destinations that makes out-of-town roadtrips to beaches and mountainsides easy to plan. Out of country trips are painless too since Las Piñas is just a short drive away to the airport.

It can also be considered as a haven for residents with the various restaurants, entertainment centers and shopping establishments found not just in Las Piñas, but also in the neighboring cities of Alabang and Parañaque.

Another reason that make living in Las Piñas attractive is because properties in the South are less expensive versus other key cities. But as the city grows, so does the value of your home’s equity.
