It is quite common for people to dream of having to live in a city where skyscrapers tower and lights conquer the darkness at night. Being within busy streets and a thriving nightlife is seemingly the definition of ‘making it’ for many. This is the very reason why Metro Manila continues to become crowded, as many believe making their dreams come true means thriving in the concrete jungle.
Others see life a little differently. While they look for opportunities in Metro Manila, they go outside the city for residence, preferring a quieter place to retreat to.
Cavite is an ideal place for those people who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Metro Manila. Its center, the city of Imus, has been a popular go-to place for home seekers wanting property near, but not in, Manila.
As to why would anyone be interested in living in another city if they are avoiding the urban centers of Metro Manila, the answer is quite simple. While Imus itself is a first-class city, it is comparatively more laidback than the National Capital Region, with more land to establish a dream home.
Historically, the city once served as a battlefield between the Katipuneros and Spanish colonizers. It was also where the first Philippine flag was waved in 1898, earning it the distinction of Flag Capital of the Philippines.
More than its historic legacy, Imus provides over 400,000 residents opportunities through an estimated 190 financial institutions, 300 manufacturing establishments and 4,376 commercial businesses.
For resident and visitors who often frequent shopping malls, Imus is the right place to be with its growing retail industry. In the city are several malls including All Home Imus, CityMall Anabu, FRC Mall, Lotus Mall, Robinsons Townville, Lumina Point Mall, and The District Imus.
For those in search of foreclosed properties which can be purchased at significantly cheaper prices, Imus has a significant market of its own, with various foreclosed properties for sale.
For instance, there is a single detached three-bedroom house located in Park Infina Residences in Barangay Alapan II which can be purchased for Php 2.5 million. The house has a floor area of 72-square meters and sits on an 88-square meter of land. This one's already semi-furnished, with several furniture pieces already installed. It also has a car garage.
Another is a more modest 60-square meter house in the same Park Infina Residences which has three bedrooms, two toilet and bathrooms, and a car garage, and can be purchased for only Php 2.2 million.
When not in need of too many bedrooms, there is also a two-bedroom house in the same development. With a floor area of around 45-square meters, one bathroom, and a car garage, the smaller home sells for only Php 1.8 million.
Should one decide to go for foreclosed properties in Imus like those mentioned, as well as others, it is recommended to make sure to consider both the price and what exactly one gets. While a foreclosed property in Imus is already affordable, it is still important that it be in a good location, is of a good the size, and is aesthetically pleasing, as well is not in need of too much repairs, to be considered the best deal.
