Helping Mothers find their perfect home

Naturally caring, empathetic, and affectionate, a mother’s role is to build and foster relationships within the family. By maintaining communication among their children and their husbands, it is often ties a mother’s task to make the tough decisions geared towards the family’s welfare including building a nurturing environment at home. Interestingly, data from top property portal Property24 points to the importance of a mother’s touch in finding the family’s perfect home.

“Our research shows us that more than half of our real estate considers and buyers are working married females. Oftentimes, they are proactive in looking for property, as this is an extension of their nurturing charisma as moms. Through Property24, we hope to continuously help families create wonderful memories in the properties that best suit their needs”, says Ferdie Perez, OLX Operations Director and Head of Real Estate.

But with a ton of considerations to make, what should mothers keep in mind when searhing for a property? Property24 shares its list of non-negotiables when making that move to purchase property from their recent research.

Proximity to shopping areas

Mothers are naturally the shoppers in the family. Supermarkets and even convenience stores are practical necessities that help in maintaining the household’s day-to-day operations. When it comes to searching for property, a nearby convenience store can give you a feeling of assurance that simple items for meals, chores, or even get-togethers are always within reach.

A nearby store, on the other hand, provides a safety net should you want to replenish stocks to prepare for the rainy days or for the upcoming holidays. Efficiency squeezing in shopping with other responsibilities at home and at work should not be too difficult when these establishments are just a stone’s throw away.

Quick access to public transportation

Greater mobility for less means quicker access to public transport systems. Nearby jeepney or tricycle services help you manage simple tasks such as getting out of the village, or even shopping. Shuttle or FX services, on the other hand, may bring you closer to your workplace for a cheaper price, or help you do your errands faster.

It also pays to know if your preferred location can be accessed by a nearby bus or train shop. Take all of these transport options into considerations for both short term and long term purpose. After all, your kids will eventually grow up to be more independent and they will need to utilize these systems too.

Children's infrastructure

Spaces that facilitate child development are important in shaping your chilld's formative years. Nearby schools, day care centers, or even play grounds are integral in helping children gain knowledge and social values within the comforts of your property's vicinity.

Ensuring these spaces are easily accessible can also help you efficiently balance other responsibilities. Treat these places as leisure hubs that allow you to connect with your child outside of your home.

Nearby public services

Public services provide convenience at a minimal cost. Barangay centers act as platforms that can help you raise any concerns about your immediate surroundings. Postal offices make it easier to send and receive parcels or letters to friends and loved ones. Health centers provide easily accessible services that address first-aid concerns, or minor surgical procedures.

Take note of the proximity of government offices when you search for a property. You will never know when you'll need to avail of these services.


Raising a family entails commitment in providing an environment that will make them feel secure. Before making that decision to purchase, it pays to research and ask about issues that may affect how you live in that area. Look at potential security issues and measure the possibilities of it affecting your everyday living. 

Remember to also trust your gut; if you do not feel comfortable spending most of your time in that property, perhaps you haven't found the right one yet.
