Just like people, house and lots may come in different shapes, sizes, types, structures, and build. They could be a single home, a townhouse, or an apartment complex.

A house investment is like a person because it does not care where anyone came from and what they are going through, it is something they can be their complete self with. Some even say that houses actually share the same personality as the owner because it is where you are celebrated for the unique flaws and some quirks that make someone authentically themselves.

And as long as they have a house and lot, it is where they are meant to be.

In the same manner, a house also deteriorates throughout the course of time so an effort to care for them will maximize their longevity. Of course there is also a need to feel safe and secured, just like inside of a home. 

A house can also be related to a person as some may be particular with regards to picking what is best for them, and it is completely okay to be critical with what you want. Besides, no one wants to settle for less right? 

    In this article, you will find out which house and lot investment that fits your wants, needs, and budget.

Single Home Investment Options

Single Firewall Houses

A defining feature of a single firewall house unit is the firewall side of the home. Essentially, the firewall protects your home and your neighbors from a fire. A firewall feature is often overlooked by homebuyers but it is practically a built-in safety precaution in your home.

Here are four single firewall houses ranging from affordable to average prices.

Alecza Single Firewall

Townhouses are single home units simultaneously built alongside each other.

Generally, townhouses are cheaper compared to single firewall homes because of their small indoor and outdoor space.

Find the right single home for you

Single independent OFWs

Being single in your 20s and 30s has its perks. If you want to acquire a house and lot in the Philippines, you have the luxury of having the title of the property under your name. 

A perfect option for single independent OFWs are townhouses and duplex houses. Townhouses and duplex homes offer an inexpensive, low-maintenance alternative to buying a big house that does not fit your needs. While these homes are far more affordable than single firewall or single detached houses, you can still enjoy socializing with your neighbors without giving up your personal space. 

Since your home is separated by a shared wall, living in a townhome or duplex home lets you enjoy your separate living spaces while keeping your privacy and security. These types of homes have two or three floors that come with either one or two bedroom provisions which is suitable for millennial OFWs and aspiring locally employed Filipinos who want to live independently.

Being a single parent can be challenging and more often than not, many single parents opt to rent in a cramped apartment over buying a house and lot property. Investing in a home is a wise decision because it builds your equity over time and it gives your kids a safe place to play and make worthwhile memories. 

For single parents looking for a home, living in a single firewall or single detached home is the best option for you. Although it costs more than a townhouse or a duplex home, single firewall and single detached homes have more space indoors and outdoors. Having a house with already sufficient space allows more elbow room for your children to grow up in. You would not have to worry about looking for a bigger home when your children are older and want their own space. 

Compared to a townhouse, living in a single firewall home guarantees safety and privacy since you have the whole house to your family. In a single firewall home, you have at least two meters of proximity to your surrounding neighbors. The distance allows you to celebrate parties and watch movies while observing proper community guidelines without disturbing your neighbor’s peace and quiet. 

There are more to these types of houses other than being associated with the word “single”. These houses are strong and can stand alone, which ensembles most of our OFWs. Though stated, it is not limited to the idea that only single individuals can have this type of home, much depends on the preference. Take note, a house would only be a hose without “u”.

Owners can really maximize their space varying on the disposition of the house and lot. They have the freedom to customize the property which allows them to build a home extension, customize some of its existing structures, and landscape the outdoor space without consulting the tenants for approval. Imagine that freedom!

Carefully choosing a location where your heart truly desires is always a good idea. Consider the proximity of the community you like to your workplace or your children’s school if it is convenient and accessible to main roads and major highways. Some of the owners fell in love at their first site — the moment they took in the view of the community. This is the best way to invest your feelings on. A house and lot would be single until the day homeowners do the first move-in or until they reserve a slot to secure that the unit legally belongs to them.

So if you ever feel pressured and lonely, remember that there is always a “single” house waiting to be partnered with.
