The price of house construction in the Philippines is highly dependent on a variety of factors, and since building a house is the kind of investment that will hopefully last multiple generations, this is an endeavor that should be taken with the utmost seriousness and the most meticulous of planning.

Naturally, calculating the cost and logistics of building a house can be overwhelming, thus the first step I recommend to make the process a little easier is to hire a home builder who will help you in designing, building, and giving you an estimate on the cost of your house.



Things to Remember About Working with a Homebuilder:


1 Be Specific - Knowing specific details about the design of your house such as your budget, specific materials, style of house finish, number of floors, and any other customizations is a big help in determining a cost estimate, so do not be afraid to be as detailed with your home builder as possible, but to narrow things down

2 Verify Experience and Credentials - Before you even hire a house contractor, you must first do your due diligence, research about how long the company has been in business, ask for a portfolio of their work, take a tour of their job sites, look at customer reviews, and most importantly verify if they have the necessary licenses and paperwork to comply with government regulation.

3 Make Sure You Have Insurance -  At any point, it is possible for things to go wrong with your house, be it minor damage, your contractor going out of business in the midst of the project, or a catastrophic act of god, so it is best to make sure that you have a safety net in the form of your insurance, in order to make sure that you are protected against financial ruin 


A General Cost Estimate


Now that you have hired a homebuilder, and you have an idea of how you would like your house to be designed and built, then comes the difficult part, estimating the cost. That is because the price of land and materials tend to vary depending on place and availability. But in general depending on the finish of your house, you can expect to pay as little as PHP 15,000- PHP 20,000 per square meter for a house with a rough finish consisting of exposed concrete walls, along with basic doors and windows, to as much as PHP 40,000- PHP 60,000 per square meter for a house with an elegant finish with all the proverbial bells and whistles money can buy.
