P20,000 Real Digs on Swoop: South-ish Edition

P20,000 Real Digs on Swoop: South-ish Edition

Here’s our continuation of, “What can we get for P20,000 on Swoop?” If you’d like to read our North edition, you can read it here. Now we’re looking beyond Quezon City. Do note that it was quite difficult to find properties within our budget in Makati and BGC so expect to see properties from cities nearby.

Ask a friend to help you look for your apartment. Ask her to download Swoop, too!

Begin with a location that gives you accessibility to EDSA so that you can go quite literally anywhere in the city. This semi-furnished 31-sqm 1-BR in Pioneer Woodlands, Mandaluyong fits the bill. Remember that you’re just a brisk away from an MRT station. Apart from an excellent location, it’s also cheaper than our other properties at 18,000 a month for rent!

If you’re a student or a teacher, this fully-furnished 32-sqm 1-BR in Providence Tower, Malate will be a great place to rent at P18,000. It’s also perfect for people who work in Makati and don’t really mind the commute. Because you are in a student area, homecooked meals are easy to get especially with the Mama V Restaurant right in the building. If KTV is also a favorite thing, you’re lucky because Mama V has karaoke too!

Now if you’ve got a car, you can consider Parañaque. This semi-furnished 58-sqm 1-BR at SM Field Residences will give you the extra space for a longer commute for P20,000. It’s also quite close to SM Sucat, so everything that you may need is easy to get to. Another thing to look forward to is your own private balcony where you can relax and imagine what life will be outside of the city. It’s really about making compromises, as we’ve said repeatedly in our Rent Checklist for Millennials. 

Travel often for work? We recommend this unfurnished 30-sqm studio in The Palm Tree Two in Pasay. It’s a bit of a steal at P18,000 and you’re definitely close to Newport City as well as Terminal 3.

There’s so much more you can find on Swoop, search on our website or download our app on the App Store and Google Play. Or you can definitely contact one of our Swoop advocates and they can help you on your search for your next home.

Here’s some inspiration, we love these Sweet Digs videos by Refinery29. Here’s a favorite from Brooklyn.
