One of the things newlyweds do after tying the knot is getting a fresh start in a different city. The location of the future home is important for recently married couples because it’s where they will raise their family and probably retire in the future.
An easy way for newlyweds would be to check online; on platforms like Earthauz property listing and find a new home in Metro Manila. After all, the capital has many shopping centers, vibrant nightlife, buzzing city streets.
Although Metro Manila may be ideal, this location is not for everyone – especially for people looking to get away from the chaotic city life. If you and your partner are looking for a place to live outside the National Capital Region (NCR), consider these locations:
Sta. Rosa, Laguna
This city is just 40 kilometers away from the metro via the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX). The location provides newlyweds with conveniences of modern living along with a “chill” suburban lifestyle.
Sta. Rosa has many schools that offer quality education – perfect for the educational needs of your future son or daughter. A few of the well-known schools and universities in the area are the Santa Rosa Elementary School, Santa Rosa Science and Technology High School, and the Polytechnic University of the Philippines (Sta. Rosa branch).
The area also has many commercial centers and community malls that offer a wide range of shopping and dining options. If you’re looking for a great place to spend your weekends, Sta. Rosa is home to the Enchanted Kingdom, the country’s first and only world-class theme park.
The city of Clark is yet another hotspot that recently married couples can consider. This fast-growing freeport zone is less than two hours away from Metro Manila.
Clark offers peace and quiet from the busy metro life. The city provides residents the opportunity to spend quality time while enjoying the laidback environment.
Clark is also home to Clark International Airport (CIA), an emerging and fast-growing international hub that serves as a point of entry to the Asia-Pacific region. The civil aviation complex serves many domestic and international airlines, including Air Asia, Cebu Pacific, Philippine Airlines, Jetstar, and Korean Air.
Clark also serves as a hub for many BPO companies in the industry. A few of the call centers you’ll find in the city are Clark Outsourcing, Alorica, and iQor.
Couples who want to enjoy stress-free and cool living can consider Tagaytay as their next home. The city offers breathtaking and scenic views of Mount Makiling, Taal Volcano, and Laguna de Bay. On top of that, the climate of Tagaytay offers a cool respite – perfect for those looking to escape the unbearable heat in Metro Manila.
Many residential communities are also in Tagaytay. You’ll find them strategically located near medical centers, churches, malls, and other establishments.
Sta. Rosa, Clark, and Tagaytay are just a few of the places you and your partner can call home. Once you’ve chosen your location, the next step is to come up with a plan to purchase the home (or condo unit) that both of you want.
