Although the city of Tagaytay, a popular weekend getaway located just 55 kilometers southwest of Metro Manila, is under the jurisdiction of Cavite Province, the city’s claim to fame is the picturesque lake and volcano that rest some 2,000 feet below in neighboring Batangas Province. The city’s high altitude (it is situated atop the ridge of an ancient volcano) and all-year sweater weather make it one of the most highly sought-after and expensive pieces of real estate anywhere in the Philippines. As a result, properties in Tagaytay, especially house and lots, command a very high premium. But despite their high price tag, Tagaytay properties are very popular among property-hunters, pushing prices even higher.
However, recent years have seen the proliferation of condo properties in Tagaytay. Many real estate developers, including SMDC, Ayala Land, Robinsons Land, and Megaworld Corporation, among others, have launched condo developments in the city, which are seen as more affordable options than house and lots. These condos have proven to be quite popular among buyers, as shown by brisk sales, and many of them are held by their owners as investment or rental properties to earn passive income. Here, we list several condo developments where one can buy and own an affordable piece of Tagaytay.
Owing to its popularity as a real estate hotspot, there are plenty of property developments in Tagaytay, which means more options for buyers that fit their budgets.
One of these developments in Don Tim Development Corporation’s Leisure Suites located in the developer’s Alto Monte Subdivision in Barangay Kaybagal East. Comprising 10 clusters of medium-rise condo buildings, Leisure Suites offer one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom apartments ranging in size from 56 to 123 sqm. All units here are allotted a parking space in front of each building.
Another development in Tagaytay that offers condos for sale is Crosswinds. This project located in Barangay Iruhin under the Vista Land brand Brittany boasts residential properties within a Swiss-inspired, resort-type community. A typical one-bedroom condo measuring 32 sqm can be had for Php4.4 million.
Finally, Ayala Land subsidiary Alveo Land’s first foray into Tagaytay offers some of the best-designed condos in the city. Dubbed Kasa Luntian, this cluster of low-rise condo buildings, inspired by Tagaytay’s bucolic surround, offers 39- to 141-sqm apartments amidst a low-density community. Once completed, this development will also house health-focused shops and restaurants, which will make Tagaytay living a much-needed break from the hustle and bustle of the big city.
