The trend nowadays in modern economical living is "going up"....which means buying a condo.
I think condos are the most convenient investment nowadays where you really do not have to worry about any real estate complications because it will be the developer who would transact for you. The space may be a bit small and only ideal for just singles, or a couple maybe, but its the only way to go if you intend to live within the busy Metro Manila cities.
If you wish a big property, you might have to look for sites in the provinces like Rizal, Laguna, Cavite, or even farther than these mentioned areas. Owning your own house built at your own lot is already becoming rare. We just have to live with going through long travel hours and traffic jams everyday on our way to work or anywhere else.
