Cheap Places in the Philippines to Buy a House and Lot

One thing that any would-be house owner in the Philippines thinks about is affordability. Face it, finding the ideal house and lot you would want to be investing in would mean finding a location that is also affordable or at least well within the budget you have set for yourself. Whether it's a house and lot for sale in Cavite or somewhere else in the Philippines, your best decision will only be as good as the amount of research and preparation you have put in to find the right location.

To help you in your search for a place to call your own, here are some places in the Philippines you would do well to look for a house and lot you can afford.


To start, Paranaque is one of your best options if you want a cheap yet upscale area within Metro Manila. Paranaque has a good balance of amenities and tranquility because of the relatively low infrastructure level in the many districts that can be found here. Despite that, your needs will surely be met because the city is ever-developing. You are looking at different kinds of decent residential properties that don’t exceed the PHP 10 million mark. Whether it’s a multiple-story house with different bedrooms or a 2-3 bedroom bungalow, you can definitely find the ideal dwelling in Paranaque.

If you that has piqued your interest, then consider looking at Betterliving Subdivision first. It is ranked number 1 in terms of affordable districts in the whole Metro Manila, while still providing classy neighborhoods. Factor in the continuous development of the area, then it really is no mystery as to why families are settling down in Betterliving and Paranaque City in general.


Moving a short hop, skip, and a jump away from the Metro, a house and lot for sale in Cavite can be the key to your residential dreams. While the aforementioned Paranaque City is on the south side of Metro Manila, Cavite is a province that is further south.

Because it is outside of Manila, prices are naturally much lower in terms of real estate. Aside from that, being away from the hustle and bustle of the city means a more private and quiet residential experience without the compromise of safety. However, living in Cavite doesn’t mean you can’t be part of the city life you may or may have been accustomed to. Metro Manila is just a couple of hours (or way less) away, so you still won’t be missing anything.


Next up is Valenzuela City. If you really can’t stand the thought of being more than an hour away from the exciting ruckus of metro city-living, then Valenzuela is your next best option. It draws many parallels with Paranaque in that they are both 1st-class, highly urbanized cities that have a great number of residential districts. The only difference is in their position within Metro Manila in terms of cardinal positions. If Paranaque is in the south, then Valenzuela is in the north.

Just like Paranaque, PHP 10 million seems to be the upper limit of the majority of properties in the area — making it the 2nd most budget-friendly city in the whole of Metro Manila. If you consider yourself more attuned to the north, then finding a dwelling in Valenzuela could be the best decision you can make.


Luzon and Metro Manila, in particular, may be the go-to in terms of attractive places to live in the Philippines. However, there are also places in the other island groups in the Philippines that are great for a house and lot purchase. One such place can be found in Mindanao, Davao City.

Compared to other cities outside of Luzon such as Cebu City and Cagayan de Oro, Davao still has cheap options for housing and residential properties. Davao boasts great weather, economic progress, peace and safety, and its fair share of tourist attractions. There is also an abundance in multicultural exchanges and traditions if you appreciate that kind of experience. If you are looking for a wholly different lifestyle, while at the same time keeping things affordable, then Davao is one of your best bets for a house and lot purchase. 

Key Takeaway

Aside from the places and cities mentioned above, the Philippines has so much more to offer in terms of a cheap or affordable living experience. The key to finding such a place is doing meticulous and diligent research as well as an open mind. If it means finding the ideal living situation for you or your family, then the endeavor deserves no less than that.
