Hi Kheen,

How are things going on for you? Have you found a very reasonable place?

To answer your question here it is:

1) Can I expect to find an okay place to live near the employer, or would I have to travel daily?
TechnoPark is for factories/manufacturing plants. There are a lot of subdivisions around TechnoPark.

2) Is this a safe place?
Yes,TechnoPark is safe but Santa Rosa is not that safe.

3) Rent or Rent-to-own? (I would rather a house than an apartment - 2-4 bedroom in nice area)
There are a lot of Rent-To-Own in Santa Rosa. I recommend not to buy a condo or townhouse. Rent-to-Own in a subdivision or villa is still much better as the price increase over time.

Well, Rent-to-Own is very ideal if you already have a family and they are going to visit and stay.

4) What should I expect to pay for living? (rent, utilities, etc)
It depends on what type you are getting, utilities (electricity, water) well depends on the usage, mcalleyboy got the estimation right

5) Would I need a car?
I would recommend a car rather than motorcycle. Motorcycle is not that advisable, if you will notice in EDSA the motorcycle lane is in between the cars and bus' lane. That's lame idea. And incident rate here is pretty high.

6) How is the area? Are there a lot of things to do?
Santa Rosa is near Tagaytay, it is good place, it is a high place so there are times it is not that hot there. There's NUVALI, they have wakepark and restos, Paseo de Santa Rosa for restos also and some boutiques. Enchanted Kingdom which is amusement park. There are actually lots of places you can visit down south, by land of course.
