Situated just north of Caloocan and Quezon City, the city of San Jose Del Monte in Bulacan has been for many years a well-known resettlement site for the government’s housing projects. This is one of the reasons why its population ballooned extensively over the last few decades; based on the 2015 Census, the city’s population now stands at 574,089. This makes San Jose del Monte officially the country’s 19th most populated local government unit.
However, things started to change over the last few years. The city has witnessed many real estate projects in recent years, and gave San Jose del Monte an image of prestige, especially because some of these projects were intended for the mid- and upper-mid-markets. Some of these projects include Camella’s three subdivision projects in the city, which offer plenty of house and lots and residential lots for future homebuyers. Another project is Ayala Land’s Altaraza estate in Barangay Tungkong Mangga, which will feature houses and mid-rise condos from two of Ayala Land’s mid-end and economic housing brands: Avida Land and Amaia Land. This newfound optimism for San Jose del Monte’s housing market might be brought about by the city’s population growth and planned infrastructure projects that will greatly benefit the city, most notable of which is the MRT Line 7.
Being home to countless subdivisions and gated communities, San Jose Del Monte offers plenty of house and lots for sale for homebuyers who normally priced out in other cities in Metro Manila. Most notable of these locations include Barangays Tungkong Mangga, Muzon, and Kaypian, among many others. One popular subdivision San Jose del Monte is Amaresa, which offers single detached houses, duplexes, and townhouses. Another subdivision project is University Residences Subdivision, where 50-sqm, standalone houses can be had at an affordable PHP 1.45 million.
Those looking for more affordable housing options in San Jose Del Monte would be pleased to know that the city has a huge inventory of foreclosed properties, most of which are being sold by the country’s largest banks and real estate brokerages, including BDO, BPI, eBuena Mano, and BFS. These foreclosed assets can go as low as PHP 500,000 and even hefty discounts await homebuyers if they purchase via scheduled property auctions.
