We keep coming back to Manila! It’s easy to see why there has been a renewed sense of optimism to buy a home in the Philippines in the latter half of this year. Vaccines are coming in and the completion of trillions of pesos worth of big-ticket infrastructure projects has us looking forward to our next Manila property investment.
While interest in Manila properties may have wavered over the past years (Unfortunately, Manila dropped two spots in the 2021 Asia-Pacific city investment prospects rankings), any investor will tell you that if you had the chance to buy real estate in the nation’s capital, you definitely should.
Historically, Manila has always had a very stable local economy. It took a few hits during the pandemic, sure, but it managed to pull through thanks to efficient local government policies. To reside in Manila means to live in a city built to prosper. From a global perspective, Manila has only maintained its status as a top-notch city well into the decade. In 2021, global advisory firm Tholons placed Manila at 8th in the 2021 Top 100 Super Cities list.
You also want to invest in Manila because of the city’s proximity to all the major financial centers and business districts in and around the National Capital Region (NCR). With employment opportunities, commercial establishments, schools, and cultural attractions abound, Manila represents the best of urban life and economic development in the Philippines.
Another reason to buy real estate in Manila? It’s worth noting that capital appreciation will continue to rise as new roadways, 12 of them to be exact, finish in the next two years. Homebuyers and investors can also expect a surge in Manila property demand. In a 2020 study by Leechiu Property Consultants (LPC), 88.3% of condo units across 26 active projects were sold during the pandemic.
Whether you want to invest in property because of its appreciation potential or you just want to reside in Manila because of its lasting appeal, you should consider these condominium projects on Ohmyhome. Best of all, you can buy a home here for less than P10 million!
