Magpapatayo na lang ako ng bahay kaysa sa bumili ng condo.
Thank you for your opinion batang_pinoy.
Though there are reasons why many people prefer condos. Such as convenience, accessibility, amenities, etc. Some also invest in condos to have them rented out for profit. Not necessarily for self-occupancy. Some buy and sell when it has appreciated.
Condos are usually located very near people's place of work or study, so they save a lot of time, money and effort going to their daily destinations. Also for safety from a long travel at night, etc.
And some, when their use for the place has expired, sell their condos, often at a huge profit. Since they bought it at pre-selling.
I would also like to have a house with a yard too, but land prices at or near commercial areas are unrealistic for me. But someday, I do plan to buy a farm lot in Rizal, cavite or tagaytay. Somewhere a bit more rural, with fresh air, so I can relax there on weekends and holidays. But as I'm working now, I'm just not willing to commute a long way to and from work. Or even rent an apartment.
Condo payments now are structured in a way that you can afford them instead of renting out a place and making your landlord richer.
Thanks again and God Bless!
Thank you Tony.
