The Philippines is primed for emerging opportunities in real estate investments this year. As the country moves to recover after tumultuous events, experts forecast a more positive outlook for the country in 2021 with a projected 7.4% growth in the economy.
When it comes to growing your assets, real estate in the Philippines has always been considered a stable investment and is not prone to drastic fluctuations, as opposed to other investments. Depending on your investment strategy and the kind of property you’re eyeing, there are various types of real estate investments that can help you with wealth accumulation and long-term prosperity.
Real estate investment in 2021: Opportunities and possibilities
Even as the economy dipped during the quarantine period, demand for real estate continues to soar, with new consumer demands arising from the pandemic. On the residential forefront, demand for sprawling outdoor spaces and laid-back communities away from Metro Manila will rise, alongside a resurgence in interest for sophisticated high-rise developments in the city as potential investors regain their confidence.
Businesses will also gather their bearings and poise for a rebound this year, leading to an uptick in the commercial market. After last year’s unit vacancies, local and outsourcing firms alike are set to return to the workplace and adopt safety measures for the new normal.
Even in extraordinary times, there will always be a demand for real estate–and its resilience and steady returns make this a worthy investment for diversifying your portfolio and securing long-term prosperity. Here are the types of real estate investments you can explore.
Even before the pandemic, townships and master-planned communities have been growing in popularity throughout the country, situated on the outskirts of Metro Manila or in other major cities in the country. Yet the aftermath of the quarantine period has fast-tracked the metro’s decongestion as families yearn for the luxury of space and the outdoors for a more balanced and peaceful lifestyle.Households are now keen on joyful and sophisticated suburban living while being a stone’s throw away from the city’s conveniences. This makes nearby provinces such as Laguna and Batangas as places of interest for families to invest in and relocate.
Investing in properties under master-planned neighborhoods can take some time and patience, but it will reward you with future capital gains as they further develop. Terreno South in Lipa, Batangas and Rockwell South at Carmelray in Canlubang, Laguna, offer multiple hectares of development for nature-filled living in an exclusive and gated community.
Meanwhile, there are still promising investment opportunities within the city, with upscale properties continuing to maintain its value and appreciation for its quality and exclusivity of amenities. High-rise developments that can offer a safe and vibrant community alongside space, comfort, and security can easily differentiate themselves from other properties. The Arton by Rockwell in Katipunan, Quezon City provides spacious cuts and wide outdoor areas for families, while being situated near some of the country’s best schools, making this a prime target for investment.
Meanwhile, properties in central business districts continue to be valuable on the market. Luxury high-rise properties offer the conveniences of being near the city’s best amenities and plenty of room to breathe, as families yearn for larger units and open, outdoor spaces after being confined indoors. Located in Rockwell Center, Proscenium at Rockwell provides a vibrant city life with its own state-of-the-art facilities, retail establishments, and luxuriously open spaces.
After last year’s economic downturn, businesses are primed to bounce back this year as companies learn to adjust to the new normal, and are better equipped to handle health and safety protocols for their employees.
While the business sector strives to recover this year, it is up to property developers to upgrade their spaces and add new measures that not only ensure productivity and collaboration among its offices, but secure the health and well-being of its tenants. These include reshaping their spaces and accounting for factors such as airflow quality, enhanced sanitation and disinfection, and thermal scanning. Commercial properties that can immediately adapt their office spaces to the new normal and provide these features are already ahead of the race, as companies look to return to the workplace after a year-long remote setup.
Rockwell Land has rolled out these new-normal features to their range of premium office spaces within Metro Manila: Rockwell Business Center Ortigas in Pasig, 8 Rockwell and 1 Proscenium in Makati, Rockwell Business Center Sheridan in Mandaluyong, and Santolan Town Plaza in San Juan, with majority being equipped with innovations that help filter the air in the office spaces, heightened sanitation measures, and regular UV cleaning treatments after office hours. These innovations and protocols have been set in place as the new-normal workplace, so that occupants and employees can work safely.
Short-term stay businesses
Business and leisure travel have led to the rise of short-term stays, as people look for properties unique to hotels, while maintaining the same excellent standard of hospitality, as well as premier amenities.
With the boom of short-term stay businesses, investing in a luxury apartment for short stays in a reputable property lets you diversify your property portfolio with guaranteed returns.
