Would anyone like to share their stories on renting in the Philippines?
Maybe some positive experiences mixed with some horror stories! Are they any sort of unique situations/traditions with renting in the Philippines?
I am about 90% sure I am making the move in a couple of months (I have finally found enough remote work to make it work, thank you remote teaching English gigs that only hire North Americans!) and have been looking to rent in either Cebu, Lapu-Lapu, or Leyte. I'm leaning towards Leyte and found what seems to be a nice place in Ormoc City for 10k a month and then a 10k deposit.
I found the rental on Olx.ph as this seems to be the best place to find rentals from my research.
Are there any other sites with this type of information besides craigslist? (which doesn't have a Leyte region section which is interesting)
All the other sites I ended up at seemed to be extremely outdated with very few recent listings.
I have personally written dozens of article on the blog about renting. You might want to check and read those:
