Why are X pats and O F W\'s prefer† indvidual lot to build on compared o
buiding in subdivisons? Whats the typical reasons you don\'t like
Subdivisions?
I see a lot of subdivision lots remaining empty and wondering why
the lot owners there don\'t want to build. Investments?
Inputs are appreciated.

For me......

1. Overpriced
2. Most have NO personality/ambience
3. Overpriced
4. Pete Seeger said it
\"Little boxes on the hillside
Little boxes made of ticky tacky
Little boxes
Little boxes
Little boxes all the same
There\'s a green one and a pink one
And a blue one and a yellow one
And they\'re all made out of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same
And the people in the houses all go to the university
And they all get put in boxes, little boxes all the same
And there\'s doctors and there\'s lawyers
And business executives
And they\'re all made out of ticky tacky and they all look just the same
And they all play on the golf course and drink their martini dry
And they all have pretty children and the children go to school
And the children go to summer camp
And then to the university
And they all get put in boxes, and they all come out the same
And the boys go into business and marry and raise a family
And they all get put in boxes, little boxes all the same
There\'s a green one, and a pink one
And a blue one and a yellow one
And they\'re all made out of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same\"


oh yeah and OVERPRICED

 \"Subdivisions\" often have association fees and restrictions on them.† A lot of people don\'t like having a bunch of rules and regulations involved with their private property.† It\'s too easy to find a lot that you can build on, and not have to put up with all that.

We rented in Ayala Alabang for a year and never saw the neighbours, just maids sweeping the road and drivers washing cars. No atmosphere, everyone living independently inside their own homes. While the security looked good, it would not have been difficult for anyone to break into houses, especially as there were always groups of outside builders around. Our maids, and others, got involved with them and could have easily let them into the house while we were out. Also the lots were small and OVERPRICED† ;D We prefer living in the real Philippines.

I LIKE not seeing the neighbours. I LIKE privacy and quiet. I have no interest in a bunch of neighbours swinging by every few hours to gas bag and disturb the peace. I don\'t want to hear their dogs bark, their cockerels crow, their karaoke ripping into my ears.

If I had my way I\'d buy an acre of rice paddy halfway up a mountain, build a walled castle, with a huge workshop, and live in peace and quiet. When I wanted company, I\'d drive out and visit people.† ;D

But, I am out voted by the family, so we do live in a sub div, we do have neighbours, we do hear their cockerels and dogs and music and horns at 4am etc etc...† :(

We just bought land in a sub division too, so there isn\'t going to be a castle on a mountain any time soon.
