Top 3 benefits of living outside Metro Manila

by | Feature, Finance, Property

Many people dream of experiencing the high life in a metropolitan city at one point in their life. While living in the city also has its benefits, you can’t deny the fact that residing in a fast-paced urban environment can be a bit overwhelming at times.

That is why some stick with the decision on settling down in the province, away from that stress that city life brings.


Here are some reasons why it is also considerable to live in a place far from towering skyscrapers and busy highways.

Lower cost of living

According to recent data from Numbeo, places in Metro Manila have a higher consumer price index (CPI). CPI is the measure that examines the weighted average of prices of a basket of consumer goods and services, such as transportation, food and medical care, according to Investopedia.

In Makati City, the CPI is at P48.70, while it is at P40.87 in the city of Manila.

The price of most vegetables, fruits, and other goods in the province are much cheaper because most of them are grown locally. Likewise, the prices of other services are also more economical compared to its corresponding prices in Metro Manila.

Accessibility

Traffic problems is almost non-existent in the streets outside Metro Manila. Lesser cars and pedestrians will help you get to your chosen destination faster.

Moreover, Metro Manila is landlocked in the middle of Luzon. Living in adjacent provinces will give you access to beaches, mountains, and other locations perfect for your family and friends’ weekend getaways.

Best of both worlds

Urban life is the center of different opportunities that is why many choose to live there. However, there are many downsides – traffic, pollution, stress, etc.

Many places outside Metro Manila, like Cavite, Laguna, and Batangas give the comfort of rural life but are only a few hours away from the country’s capital.

Now, you can get those things and more when you avail a unit at SMDC’s Wind Residences. Located at the heart of Tagaytay, this 15-hectare property offers the tranquil splendor of nature combined with luxurious country club amenities, perfect for families to enjoy. This residential and commercial mid-rise development is surrounded by sprawling gardens, and is near Tagaytay City Hall, Sky Ranch, and Taal Vista Hotel.
