Affordable costs, shared amenities, and proximity to business districts fuel the popularity of condominiums and co-living apartments. However, an online real estate comparison study shows that majority of Filipinos still prefer living in house and lots. It also identifies a surge in property searches in the provinces due to rapid urbanization and expansion of roads and highways outside Metro Manila.
For families looking to elevate their lifestyle, a house and lot is a long-term investment that allows them to live well. Analysts cite that lot owners have flexibility and are able to grow their property depending on their needs, such as the addition of children or pets.
Unlike in a condo unit or apartment, they have control of remodeling or modifying the abode to add rooms or outdoor spaces like a garden, yard, or parking space.
Owners also enjoy privacy and security that gated house and lots provide. Moreover, owners are free to add other measures such as a fence or security devices.
AboitizLand understands the advantages of owning house and lots, hence it introduces Ajoya, a mid-market residential development offering gated master-planned communities in Cabanatuan and Capas. The former is a 19-hectare property located in Barangay Valle Cruz, Nueva Ecija while the latter is a 13-hectare development located in Barangays Talaga and Estrada in Tarlac.
“A secure and comfortable house and lot improves a family’s quality of living and their daily interactions, and gives them a lifelong sense of fulfillment. Ultimately these are the benefits that we want our vecinos (neighbors) to experience when they become owners of an AboitizLand property including Ajoya,” says John Amon, AboitizLand vice president for marketing and reputation management.
Ajoya is inspired by the iconic Filipino bahay na bato, with houses featuring traditional elements like the azotea (porch) and ventanilla (small window), updated to match today’s styles. The neighborhood is built around a vibrant town plaza, reminiscent of a traditional Filipino community landscape.
To further foster interactions between vecinos, Ajoya provides a clubhouse, a multi-purpose hall, and a pool with an open gazebo. The community is designed to encourage walking so homeowners can build rapport and take in nature at the pocket parks and green belts.
All of Ajoya’s amenities are purposefully designed to contribute to the increased quality of life for vecinos, while offering all the benefits of an owned house and lot.
