Houses are still the most popular types of housing for many Filipinos. However, there are certain cases in which houses proves not as much beneficial than owning a condominium. So what makes houses inadequate and other types of housing such as condominiums beneficial?

Disadvantage in Location
Although there are houses found near major business districts in the Philippines, such as in Makati City or in Pasig City, its availability are usually minimal, and that buying a house near these places can be too expensive. Condominiums are normally found inside these great cities, allowing its residents the luxury of living within walking distance to their workplaces.

Other condo Philippines are found near mass transit areas, such as condominiums attached to railroad systems, which makes it easier for their residents to travel back and forth from work to home.

Disadvantage in Maintainability and security
Another reason why condominiums became popular is because of its maintainability as well as its security. Unlike owning a house which is maintained by its occupier (although the occupier could hire maids to do their maintenance), condominiums have their own maintenance personnel that maintains the livability of their condominium, from hallways to elevators (if any), from gardens to garages.

Security is also an advantage of owning a condo Philippines. Condominium buildings are known for their high security while condominium complexes are also known for their security which maintains the exclusivity of their compound only for their residents.

Disadvantage in Amenities
Another major advantage why condominiums have become more and more popular is because of its amenities. New types of condominiums such as condominium complexes became popular because of its amenities that can only be found with expensive townhouse complexes. Such amenities include resort facilities such as swimming pools, gyms, spas, and recreational parks.

However, there are new types of housing projects which are known to provide the same type of amenities that condominium complexes became popular with. These new types of houses are known as housing complexes, which are complete with amenities such as those mentioned as well as security.

Advantages of houses
There are, however, several advantages to owning a house compared to condominiums. One is that houses are more family-oriented than most condominiums. Another is that owning a house gives its residents the right to modify their houses and the land it sits on as they please, not unlike condominiums which doesn't allow the modification of their exterior, while interior modifications may involve passing a request to the homeowners association.
