Are there other options for OFW house and lots and condominium investments for sale aside from Metro Manila properties?
Home indeed is where the heart is. In times of depleting options and increasing prices of property options in subdivisions and condominiums near business districts, Filipinos especially Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) and migrant workers are down to pricey ready for occupancy (RFO) homes and spot payment terms.
But to other investors and home seekers, the side skirts or suburbans of the metro in proximity to workplaces and places of interests like schools, malls, supermarkets, and places of worship are the best choice.
OFWs and migrant Filipinos work hard for their dream of owning a property investment that will give them the comfort of their home. They also aim to have an income replacement solution while enjoying the prime of their life or during their retirement.
There are residential developments approximately 15 minutes or 10 kilometers away from business districts of Manila. There are also possible locations to look at that are accessible to workplaces yet near your hometown.
We usually mention the roads or highways as references to locations and areas. In Metro Manila, these are the gateways OFWs and migrant Filipinos can consider in getting a property with high value appreciation potential. The sprawling East, the developing South, and the promising North links to the bustling business district of Manila. Mode of transportations are UV express, minibuses, and point-to-point buses.

Final advice on your choice about your OFW house and lot and condominium option
Like the Alabang Muntinlupa in the south and the Fairview of Quezon City in the north, it used to be a side skirt of urban development. It also used to be very far to commuters since the workplace only concentrates at the heart of Metro Manila which is Makati and Pasig.
These alternative municipalities at the side skirts of Metro Manila can become one of your choices for property investment in the Philippines. The top of the advice from property experts is to choose the right location. But since most OFWs and migrant Filipinos believe that the hometown they grew up in is the best place to live or invest, they can have it both ways.
Today, workplaces have expanded in different areas of Metro Manila. There are several job opportunities in BPO companies, commercial malls, and office establishments around the National Capital Region because of road and infrastructure developments.
The nearest working district to provincial areas if you are coming from the south is Alabang and Laguna. In the North are Novaliches, Caloocan, and Bulacan. In the East are Antipolo, Cainta and Marikina.
With all the mentioned locations in the side-skirts of Metro Manila, these developing areas are great choices with the potential appraisal value and high rentability rate and yield. Like other developed areas in Metro Manila, these will provide profit and income in no time.
