Starting out as a small fishing port, the city of Las Piñas eventually turned into the sea-salt production center of Manila during the Spanish era. Nowadays, the city is still widely recognized, specifically for being the location of the St. Joseph Church, the site of the world’s only Bamboo Organ. Aside from that, the city is also known for the Sarao Motors Factory, where high-quality passenger jeepneys are individually built.
While boasting of urban conveniences and its own commercial, business, industrial, and educational centers, Las Piñas was actually only turned into a city in 1997. As one of the 17 cities and municipality that comprise Metro Manila, it is relatively less congested than the major cities within its group. Thanks to its own developments and its proximity to cities like Parañaque and Muntinlupa, the city is an optimum choice for those looking to escape greater Manila’s traffic, yet still remaining within its reasonable distance.
Apart from being an alternative to the busier areas of the capital, Las Piñas is a choice living location because it has long served as the entryway to CALABARZON (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, and Quezon). This makes the city a good starting point for those who often frequent those areas.
Similar to neighboring Muntinlupa, the city and its real estate value is expected to increase in the future as more developers continue to invest in the area. Alabang West, a commercial, retail, and residential development has already began attracting businesses and new residents to the area.
Those interested in the properties the city has to offer are recommended to acquire them now or in the immediate future. The continuous progress of the city are towards furthering the area’s livability. If nothing else, buyers who eventually place their apartment for sale or house for rent in Las Pinas will later get a substantial return on their investment.
Developments like BF Resort, Bay Previo, and Vergonville Subdivision, among others, feature various properties that are all ready for occupancy. They include standard house and lots, townhouses, and estates. Prices start at PHP 200,000, which can already provide an owner a 68 square meter lot with a five-bedroom home. The more comprehensive properties can go for as much as just below a million pesos.
Real estate is indeed a hot commodity in the city, and those looking for a house for sale in Las Piñas would be hard pressed not to be able to find one suitable to his requirements. Many are already ready for occupancy. Whether one moves to the city now or later, pleasant urban living is always to be expected.
