The province of Bulacan is located immediately north of Metro Manila, earning it the nickname of “The Gateway to the Northern Philippines.” It’s made up of three cities: Malolos (the provincial capital), Meycauayan, and San Jose del Monte. Purchasing a house and lot for sale in Bulacan gives you the luxury of living in a more laid-back area while still being connected to the bustling metro.

Despite its proximity to Metro Manila, a house and lot for sale in Bulacan would cost you significantly less than one in Manila. A townhouse-style single attached house costs approximately Php 1.6 to 2.3 million. Even the more upscale developments remain affordable at around Php 3 to 4 million. A bigger house and lot sitting on 596 square meters of land would cost you around Php 9.5 million.
Bulacan is the nearest province to Metro Manila on the north side. It’s only about an hour away from the metro’s business districts in Makati and BGC. It’s even closer to Quezon City; it would take you under an hour to get to the city’s commercial and business centers. What makes having a residence in Bulacan even more appealing is that it’s easily accessible via buses, making your commute convenient and affordable. Since Bulacan is an agricultural area still, you can enjoy lots of greenery and outdoor activities.
The economies of rural spots within Bulacan are still highly dependent on agriculture and aquaculture. However, the province is steadily shifting into industrialized businesses— this is due to its close linkage to Metro Manila. Several corporations have put up industrial factories and sites in Bulacan. This opens up more opportunities for employment for Bulacan residents. The spread of industrialization and commerce in the area also sets the stage for entrepreneurs to kickstart their own businesses.
1. Why is a foreclosed house and lot for sale in Bulacan significantly cheaper?
Most foreclosed properties for sale are offered with an “as-is-where-is” basis. This means that there are no recent renovations or home updates done, however, that doesn’t mean that the houses are in bad shape either.
2. Which properties are close to NLEX exits?
We have a number of properties that are near NLEX entry and exit points. For one, the Lessandra Bulakan project is just 8 kilometers away from the Sta. Rita exit. Another home up for sale is situated near the Tabang exit.
3. How much is the initial cash-out for a new house in Bulacan?
The initial cash-out would depend on the house and lot’s selling price. For a standard single attached house that’s ready for turnover, the cash-out could be around 650K.
