(SPOT.ph) If there’s one thing we miss from the “old normal,” it’s being able to go on a quick trip to recharge our batteries. After being cooped up indoors for over a year, it’s a given to long for a change in scenery once the pandemic is over—whether it’s investing in a second home outside the city or settling there for good. In fact, an article on Inquirer.net says that many individuals are looking into buying properties outside the Metro, specifically homes near seaside leisure estates and resort communities. Lamudi Philippines explains this demand as a need “to be closer with nature.”

From properties by the beach to homes with access to sprawling outdoor spaces, these options are indeed becoming more enticing these days. Ready to live like you’re on vacation 24/7? Here are properties worth shortlisting.
