so Phillipines price is below average.
My comparison with my daughter cost of electricity in Aust bears this out, she pays average $200AU per month, we here pay average

i have to disagree with ya look at some of the dates on the spreadsheet many are out of date ive discussed this with many expats and they mostly agree that the price is sky high right now

[moderated: advertisement]

I will go to CDO in October. I would like to know if you know a budget inn for me. I wil go to Camiguin for a few days of vacation. I hope you can help me. Thanks

i know one within the city. I thing its victory inn something i forgot the exact name of the place. But its at the back of Malberry suites. Near Limketkai Mall

Hi Heinrich:

I saw your post here although I realize it was some time ago so I don't know if you're in a position to comment
on CDO now.  I'm considering moving there and would be looking for a basic studio apt (with cooking facilities).  Or a small one bedroom would do.

I work online so I'd be looking for the availability of a decent internet connection too.

Can you give me any ideas on the approximate price range of something like that?

Also, everybody seems to like like the place but doesn't CDO get some bad storms sometimes?

Thanks much,
Art Williams

... help with Flat or ?...  in Cagayan de Oro...

after 3 years of learning about the people and culture, and nearly 1 year of researching economies and housing.... this is what I have learned:

1.  agents: they get a 'portion' of YOUR rent money each month.  Most hire one, but it will cost you 10 to 30% more by doing so.   Contacting them 'online' is tough.  of the more than 50 I wrote, only 7 replied, and all but 1 were 'grossly over local prices'.

2.  Rent to Buy Condos:  above ground floor high-rises sell this way... you pay in fact 2x the 'fair value' per square meter, for a tiny place.. .or for single male about 4,200,000, and have to give 10K USD to start.  NOT WISE!

3.  Locals posting 'online' ...  some landlords have 2 and 3 or more 'homes or apartment buildings'... and do list 'online'.   these who do, have a 'wild' range of pricing.  From 30,000 a month, .. to as low as just 3,800 for a tiny furnished 2 room with aircon unit.   By the way, CONTACTING the lowest priced ones is tough.. by phone only, so wait until you are 'in the city'.

4.  Advice from SOME.. is that you:
      a.  hire an 'honest' girl to 'seek something for you'..   local landlords charge 2x more for expats, than locals, for the SAME unit.   but... GOOD LUCK finding such a girl, even if you pay her, MOST are thieves.
      b.  however..  some expats told me that 'motorcycling or jeepneeing' around town you will see signs posted 'for rent' .... this is a great way to 'find a house or apartment'...but then you have to have a strong back to 'walk away' from the dishonest or questionable deals,...but also 'take' with written terms that are clear, the place that is 'cheap, SAFE, no flood, and has the amenities you need'.   Going rates doing it this way.. 5,000 a month or so average.
      c.  condo'ing it at 'snob hill'..  a great option... and you WILL pay 11,000 to 15,000 minimum for a very small but fully furnished unit in a 'plush' area.

... with these facts, I would like to know from ANYONE living in CDO... of any apartments They find.. I would like to move.

thank you
