When it comes to people wanting to live in the Philippines, for the majority it seems to come down to prices. Yes, most things are quite inexpensive here. Some things are more expensive here, as I have pointed out on some posts in the past. But, I still get a lot of e-mails saying things like:
I am retiring, and will have an income from my pension of $xxxx per month. Is that enough to live there?
Other people e-mail me asking:
I don’t know if I have enough money to retire in the Philippines. Can you tell me how much Item X costs there?
Fill in the “X” with the name of any item you like, and you can bet that I’ve been asked!
So, today, I am going to ask you. What items do you want to know the prices of? Leave a comment below and just tell me what item you are interested in. I will send one of my employees out with a list of items to check prices on, and I’ll report back to you. Remember, prices vary. If you say “how much is a 3 bedroom house?” Well, I can find a 3 bedroom house for P1,000 per month or less, I can also find one for P60,000 or more. A nipa hut with 3 bedrooms would not rent for the same amount as the best 3 bedroom house in Forbes Park, right? So, keep your questions specific, so that we can give you the most accurate price possible!
