I would welcome the forum's opinion on this subject. We are just back for a visit this year but intend to come back permanent next year so we have been looking at a few lots with or without houses, we are only interested in 2000sqm or larger and have found the prices are unbelievably high, I cannot believe anyone is really paying these sort of prices. We looked at one yesterday 2200sqm fully fenced and a small house which we would have had to demolish or use as a helpers house, they want 5.5m ! the best bit was they told us last year it was 4.5m, so it looks like if you can't sell at 4.5 the answer is to raise to 5.5, must make sense to someone. When we lived here before for 6 years we eventually managed to sell our house and lot after 2 years on the market for slightly less than we paid which tells me we probably paid too much at the beginning. This time it's going to be our final retirement home and I don't want to make the same mistake again. So as I said at the beginning I would welcome the forum's opinion/ advice, have I just been looking at the wrong places or is 2000php + per sqm the norm.
