Why a House and Lot in Bulacan is the Best Christmas Gift to Give Yourself This Holiday Season8 November 2021
The holiday season is just around the corner, and you are probably already curating a list of things to buy for your loved ones. Or perhaps you’ve already managed it in advance like you always have, making sure everyone on your list gets something.
While this is a season of giving, don’t leave yourself out of the good things you deserve to have. After all, you’ve gone through a tough year and managed to surpass the challenges thrown at you. Just this time, think of yourself and take the celebration to a whole new level by giving yourself a brand new house!
But why a house? First of all, you deserve it. You deserve to harvest the fruit of your labor. Second, it’s an excellent property investment that will benefit you in the long years to come. And lastly, there’s no better gift than that.
A home is your safe place—a place where you can relax and just be yourself 24/7. Sure, a new pair of socks or a fluffy sweater will make you all comfy, but nothing beats the comfort that a house can give. Plus, it simply cuts above the rest, making it the best Christmas gift you can give yourself this holiday season.
The next question is: where?
If you want to live close to Metro Manila but still want to enjoy the probinsya life, Bulacan is an ideal place to live in.
What You’ll Love About Living in Bulacan
Nowadays, living in the rural areas outside Metro Manila is becoming a trend. There’s no doubt that a whopping 54% of the Philippine population chose to live in rural areas. If you’re one of those born and raised inside the metro, you might be wondering the benefits of living within your neighboring provinces or cities. No worries, we got you covered! You will know more in a bit.
But if you have already done your research, you might have already seen that one of the best options to live is in the province of Bulacan.
From its rich culture, history, and thriving economy, let us learn more about why buying a property and living in this neighborhood could be the best Christmas gift you can have for you and your family this season!
1. Near Metro Manila
If you work in Manila or your kids are studying in the capital, no need to worry about traveling to and from your home in Bulacan as it is just a bus ride away from Metro Manila.
With its proximity to the metro, you can easily access the neighboring cities or provinces both in the north or south with ease. Bulacan’s strategic geographical location also helped explain why the province can manage to still be close to nature but continue to become an area of expansion for industries. Having this fact, I bet you already have an idea why this province’s growth is attracting a lot of investments and economic activities!
2. Low Cost of Living
This is in contrast if you’re staying in Bulacan as the provincial government makes agriculture a major priority in the province. Although most Bulakenyo farmers seem to plant more rice, Bulacan is actually a province suitable for growing a wide variety of crops which includes fruits, vegetables, root crops, ornamentals, and industrial crops. Besides farming, the province also caters to significant industries like embroidery, poultry, piggery, fishery, metalcraft, and even furniture. It appears that this province is such a superstar location, having almost everything in place! With abundant resources in Bulacan, the cost of living is relatively lower than in the metro.
3. Accessibility and Transportation
Bulacan may have an impression of being “very probinsya” as it is surrounded by rice fields, vegetable farms, and piggeries. But if you’ve gone there once or twice, you can attest that it is not as far from how the city looks as you think it might be. Buses going to Bulacan are widely seen on highways and terminals.
Of course, traveling back and forth from Bulacan to Metro Manila would be way more convenient and faster through private vehicles. The province is surrounded with expressways, so it’s easier to go inside and out of the province!
4. Ideal location for various industries
Since the sources are mostly coming from the province itself, expect that the prices and cost of living are definitely way cheaper compared to the overpriced goods and properties in Metro Manila. More options for you with better quality and at an affordable cost!
Inside this promising province, Pandi, the youngest town of Bulacan, is growing into a bustling town perfect as an ideal place for residence. Pandi may be one of the smallest towns in Bulacan, but it indeed is a mighty mite! You can already have a house you can call your own for around PHP 2,000 per month or the same amount as a simple Noche Buena. Undoubtedly, the best Christmas gift each Juan could ask for!
With its strategic location and cheap housing costs, this would be the great time to take advantage of this suburban area.
5. Industrialized and has growing economy
Speaking of transportation, the spotlight is now on Bulacan as the province is involved in the integrated transportation system plan of the national government under the Build-Gradual Transfer Operate and Maintain (BGTOM) Project.
Metro Manila is infamous for its crowded and congested highways. The Metro Rail Transit Line 7 (MRT-7) Project is now rolling to address the transportation needs of passengers and alleviate the traffic congestion in Metro Manila, particularly traffic going to and coming from Northern Luzon.
This rail transit system will include a joint station with MRT Line 3 at EDSA corner North Avenue, Quezon City, and LRT Line 1 to streamline transportation for an easier commute to every Juans. The Department of Transportation (DOTr) has already announced that the Metro Rail Transit Line 7 (MRT-7) will operate by April 2022.
This may already sound exciting for you, but it does not stop from there!
Aside from the ongoing MRT-7 Project, the construction of the Bulacan aerotropolis is already in progress. The New Manila International Airport or NMIA, which is currently being built in the province, will be the first “pacesetter for green cities” in the country. Experts handling the project explained that NMIA would also address social and environmental concerns about the airport.
What’s in it for you? Well, if you are a frequent traveler, you will no longer have to go to Manila or Clark to catch your flights! If you’re running late from Manila to NMIA, no sweat because two major expressways will also open this 2023 connecting to the airport.
With all these ongoing infrastructures, there’s no doubt that Bulacan will soon be a progressive location and an apple to the eye of investors! If you’re also fond of building a business, Bulacan is something definitely worth looking at.
6. Rich in historical places and national parks
For us Filipinos, Christmas is considered the most festive and important holiday. It is a time where families gather together, sharing good food and gifts. However, being safe and healthy with your family could already be the best Christmas gift in these trying times.
But, if you’re residing near or within Bulacan, going on a quick road trip or church visits for “Simbang Gabi” would be a great option to spend time with the fam! Our personal favorite is the St. Augustine Parish Church, well-known for its gigantic bell tower. Another option is the historical Barasoain Church, which is derived from “Baras ng Suwail,” which means “dungeon of the defiant.” Barasoain is believed to be the town of the nationalistic Filipinos who fought against during the years of oppression.
Children who love to see famous historical spots from the textbook would enjoy the Biak-na-Bato. It is a mountain in Bulacan where President Emilio Aguinaldo and Spaniards signed a peace treaty that placed the Philippine Revolution on hold. These days, the mountain is known for hiking tours to explore rock formations, caves, and rivers.

Get your trekking shoes ready for a holiday leave! Aside from their historical background as the Katipunero hideout, Pinagrealan Cave is famous for its ecological attraction. You can also explore:
