Our village is a medium-scale one with the dues pegged at 300 pesos (less than $10). For a condo in the same level, the cheapest condo dues is 3,000 pesos monthly. Comparing the 2, it is clear that a house and lot in a village is much better in terms of monthly dues. Besides, the house has more freedom than a condo which has many restrictions. The only advantage of the condo is the tight security although it is not guaranteed though, there are incidents of break-ins in condos.
