Can somebody help me out here please, I have $60,000.00 dollars (Aust) and my dream is to build or buy a native house, but am unsure of how to go about it.
Have been living in Dumaguete for three years plus with the same lady, and have been renting all of that time, so now I think that I have passed my probation and have decided that my life now is in the Philippines.
It was a mutual agreement that me and my lady friend would not marry, nor buy any property until I was sure that I would be happy to live here forever, which also would be a test of our relationship, as she wanted me to be 100% sure that I could trust her, so after three years I think that we have both passed the test.
Can anybody advise me please whether or not $60,000.00 AU would be enough to buy a property somewhere in outer Cebu, or here in Dumaguete as I need to be not too far from medical help ie Hospital etc in case of whatever?
I would be willing to go on renting but it would be nice to have our own house to grow vegies,and have a dog, with a native hut/house to live in, but am at a loss of how to go about it as I have never gone into buying a property whilst I was renting.
Anyway to cut to the chase... is there anywhere in the Philippines near Cebu, or Dumaguete that would have what we are after?
Thanking anybody who can advise me in advance.
