Prime Locations to Buy House and Lot in Cavite

Every year, at least 10 residential developments spring in Metro Manila; each one with its unique characteristics that make home buyers settle in that community for good.

One of the most sensible option is Cavite. Aside from being close to business districts in the metropolis, it is nostalgically historic and still boasts lush greeneries that any family would enjoy.

The province is modest in land area compared to the other members of CALABARZON (550.99 square meter to be exact) but it remains a prime location because there are residential or mixed communities being developed constantly.

The challenge now is deciding where to look for the best house and lot in Cavite. Let us help you. Here are the best towns and cities in Cavite to grow your family roots.

Named after the revolutionary general Mariano Trias, this once sleepy town is on a fast track in becoming one of the province’s busiest cities. Compared to the four cities mentioned above, Gentri (as most locals call it) is the farthest away from Manila at 35 kilometers. However, this did not discourage businesses from establishing roots in the city. In fact, since 2000, industrial estates gave it a major economic lift thus residential developments soon followed.

However, this is not the only development the city has experienced. Located in the southern tip is the Eagle Ridge Golf and Country Club which attracts wealthy individuals because not only of its three golf courses, but as well as its high-end residential community.

The city does not have a lot of malls yet, with only Robinson’s Place acting as the first full scale shopping destination for the residents.

In essence, General Trias is not yet as developed as its neighboring towns. It still has its provincial charm, but it does not lack the basic facilities. So, if you are looking for a community with a more rural feel to invest in real estate in Cavite, General Trias might be for you.

Unbeknownst to many, tourist superstar Tagaytay is actually part of Silang. However, the latter should not be compared with the former when it comes to real estate because Silang has its own characteristics which make it a very amiable location to settle.
