If you have the money, you will have no problem finding a condo to buy in these Metro Manila areas.

When selecting a condo, price is the leading concern of the most budget-conscious buyer, which is why they concentrate their search in areas that are not considered to be prime real estate. But if you have a “sky’s the limit” budget, it allows you to widen your scope to more desirable neighborhoods as you should: there are communities in Metro Manila where condos may cost more, but the prices are matched by the luxury and convenience provided by the locale.

In that regard, we searched’s database and found the following locations that house some of the most high-priced condo units in Metro Manila. (Note: selected units are one-bedroom, one bathroom with no parking)
