Home / Real Estate / I’m Looking for a House For Rent in Davao


It has been weeks I’m looking for a house to live and I just couldn’t find one. I’ve been to some subdivisions here in my place but no luck. Some has high price and others are too shabby and old.

I want to rent for the meantime before I will have settled my plan to buy a house, a housing loan most probably. I want to stay here in Catalunan Grande at my parent’s place because it’s cool here. Besides, developments here are evident. And that I can visit my Mom and Dad and siblings conveniently. Dibah?

The rest of the houses found on that page from the link given to me are either for sale or outdated. In other words, they’re all vacated. If you want to be sure just go to this page.

But in Catalunan, unfortunately, I couldn’t find any. I’ve been to South Villa, Caflor, SGR, still no luck. Vacant houses there are either only for sale or abandoned which you have no idea who owns it because there was no contact number at the gate. And the neighbors there too have no idea where to find the owner.

Yesterday morning I went to Skyline Phase III. I was at a sari sari store asking some idlers there if they knew of some houses for rent in that village. They said they knew nothing about houses for rent. And this old lady asked me how much was my budget. I said ahmmm 5 to 6 thousand maybe?

So she went in to her house, got a key, and I accompany her to the house she was talking about. Great, I thought. Finally I have found one.

But not yet because she said the owner of the house is her daughter who is working in Canada, and that she would have to ask permission from her first before I can rent the house. I said, well, okay that’s fine.

And so I have to wait for that time if the daughter approves it. But I can’t wait. I need the house desperately since my fiancee will be coming home in a few weeks. I will have to apply for Internet connection and all that.

So if you have information about where to find a house for rent in Catalunan Grande, please leave at the comment section below. Please please please. Thanks a lot! 🙂

Pasensya nah sa grammar ha? Nagmamadali kasi me eh. hehe

Oh by the way, the next contest will be posted on my next post. Sorry guys, just thinking about what kind of contest. Ayt? Thanks! 🙂
