MANILA, Philippines – If there’s one thing that the wealthy has learned from the global financial crisis, it is to diversify and manage their risks. They’ve turned to real estate as a safe haven for their wealth.
Among markets, the Philippines has become one of the most attractive, largely due to its stellar growth performance. Despite a string of disasters, the Philippine economy grew 7.2% in 2013, making it the fastest growing in the region, next only to China.
Property consultancy firm Colliers International reported that luxury condominium sales in the Philippines more than doubled over the last two years, driven by both overseas and local investments.
According to Colliers, overseas investments in premium properties are divided into several waves: foreign investors buying properties because they have business interests here, investors buying for permanent residency outside their native countries, and wealthy Filipinos working abroad buying for their families.
Locally, high net worth investors looking to earn windfalls and end-users also fuel demand.
While some purchase these properties as “trophy assets,” others “realize that the yields are attractive and the volatility of returns much lower than other investment classes,” said Julius Guevara, director and head of research and consultancy at Colliers.
High condo sales
Guevara said luxury condominium sales in the country priced at more than P7 million surged over 300% to 3,900 units in 2013 from 1,300 units in 2011.
He said demand for local premium properties continues to rise as the economy expands. Locally, this is demonstrated by the robust performance of the services sector, which is largely accounted for by the BPO industry. Due to low labor costs and English proficiency of the workforce, more outsourcing companies are choosing to locate their offices in the Philippines. This surge, in turn, brings in more expats looking to buy or rent premium properties near their workplace, noted Romeo Arahan, one of Colliers’ research analysts.
Foreign investors banking on the Philippines’ prospects are also buying properties here.
Under the law, foreigners are not allowed to own private land in the Philippines but they may own condominium units, provided that the title of the land where the condominium stands is owned by a Filipino corporation, and not more than 40% of the units are owned by foreigners.
Arahan said these foreign investors are mostly from Asia, mainly Hong Kong, Singapore and China.
Guevara said particularly, there was a boost in inquiries from Singaporean and Hong Kong buyers, “who had cooling measures enacted in their own housing markets so that they are now looking for areas outside of their home countries to invest in.”
Jan Custodio, head of CBRE Global Research and Consultancy, also gave an explanation: “The main motivation for these foreign investors is that the Philippine property market is a worthwhile investment given the acquisition costs of properties here in the Philippines is much lower compared to areas such as Singapore and Hong Kong.”
How they earn
Premium property buyers earn from their purchases in two ways: leasing and what analysts call “flipping” or buying low, selling high. However, Guevarra said more investors are into leasing.
“We have not seen much ‘flipping’ for these properties, most likely because the buyers hang on to these properties due to rental yield potential,” he explained.
Guevara said the Philippines currently has the highest gross rental return in the region for premium properties. “The net effective rental yield and capital appreciation is about 10-11%.”
A Colliers report said premium 3-bedroom rental rates in Makati rose 0.4% in the fourth quarter of 2013 from the previous quarter. This put monthly rent for a 250-square meter unit at P201,250. In Fort Bonifacio, rental rates went up 1.7% quarter on quarter, putting the monthly rent for a 250-square meter unit at P202,000.
Those in the buy and sell business acquire properties at lower prices during pre-selling and sell them for profit later into that stage or when the project has been completed.
According to Arahan, premium properties cost between P150,000 to P250,000 per square meter so, say, a 60-square meter property would cost P9 million at the very least.
Guevara said some projects may go as high as P168 million like the Two Roxas Triangle in Makati. Another example would be the Garden Towers, also located in Makati, where units range from P 10million to P220 million.
Tom Mirasol, Ayala Land Head of Sales and Marketing for the Residential Business Group, said, “If a person is making a property investment, it’s always wise to buy the best that you can afford.”
The prices of premium properties are primarily driven by location. Other determining factors are the size, type of property (a condominium or a lot in a high-end subdivision) age and upkeep costs. – Rappler.com

Prestigious accolades cement ALP’s position as the developer of choice for projects that are a cut above the rest.
Anvaya Cove gains the title of the Philippines’ most awarded residential resort development. This year saw the Ayala Land Premier project already triumphing in the 2016 Global Awards for Excellence offered by the Urban Land Institute, which recognizes best practices and outstanding development projects. On the heels of that accolade, Anvaya Cove recently gained another in the last
FIABCI-Philippines Awards under the Environmental Category, rewarding projects that aim to conserve existing natural environment. FIABCI is the French acronym for "Federation Internationale des Administrateurs de Bien-Conselis Immobiliers", which means "The International Real Estate Federation". The prestigious organization has represented the world's real estate professions through its Special Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations. Currently operating in more than 60 countries, FIABCI represents every discipline in the industry and links thousands of real estate professionals worldwide.
Their awards, dubbed the FIABCI Prix d'Excellence, recognizes projects that best embody excellence in the real estate disciplines involved in their creation. Judged by an international panel comprising top real estate professionals and experts, the FIABCI Prix d'Excellence rewards overall merit and not just aesthetics, functionality or size. Thus, the Prix d'Excellence is said to be bestowed on projects that are truly a cut above the rest.
BUILDING ON SUSTAINABLE PRINCIPLES
Anvaya Cove’s win was well-deserved, as Ayala Land Premier focused on developing the project as a sustainably masterplanned residential seaside leisure community. Environmental sustainability was deeply ingrained in its planning and development, with a conscious effort to minimize earthworks and to enhance the ecosystem. Endemic flora and fauna thrive in and around Anvaya Cove, even in its world-class golf course, with the added benefit of lessening water and maintenance requirements.
Ayala Land works tirelessly to retain Anvaya Cove’s lush terrain, protecting its status as a nature sanctuary, where migratory birds, sea turtles and other endemic wildlife can thrive. It took meticulous planning and painstaking efforts to preserve the natural lay of the land and inherent beauty of the site. This is in line with Ayala Land’s commitment to the environment and sustainable practices.
Anvaya Cove boasts a stunning natural setting featuring 3.5 kilometers of beautiful coastline with magnificent views. The 470-hectare premier development is located in Morong, Bataan, about two and a half hours from Manila, an hour from Clark and only 20 minutes from Subic.
The project features the highest standards of construction, design, services and amenities -- as expected of any Ayala Land Premier development. From the beginning, the design and planning of Anvaya Cove followed sustainable principles, emphasizing the protection and enhancement of the site’s natural attributes and habitats. This meant designing roadways that avoid mature trees and follow the natural contour of the land and choosing lighting fixtures that would not disorient pawikans (Olive Ridley Sea Turtles) as they come home to nest. Amenities like the Nature Camp also serve a venue for interacting with nature as well as promoting conservation.
A CLASS OF ITS OWN
In contrast to other developments that maximize floor area at nature’s expense, Anvaya Cove’s land use and zoning have the environment in mind. Structures were designed to be low-lying and used natural materials and color palettes that blend in with the lush natural setting. Generous setbacks and open spaces were provided between neighborhoods, with building footprints limited to only 35 percent of the total lot area. Structures utilize locally available materials, passive solar energy features and natural ventilation, designed to respond to climatic conditions such as heat, humidity and heavy rains.
Environment protection is also evident in the construction and environmental management plan. A comprehensive study on the development impact to the environment was done to minimize the effect to the site. Its one-hectare lagoon acts both as a storm water catchment and recreated wetland for wildlife. Every year, the project team conducts a tree-replacement program to replenish the greenery that had been displaced by development. Also in place as well, is an environmental monitoring system that measures water quality, coral reef cover, sea turtle nesting activity, and an inventory of the endemic bird species found in the development.
The team also recognizes that environmental protection needs to involve the local community and all stakeholders to succeed. The Local Government Unit, Pawikan Conservation Center and Municipal Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Management Council have been given financial and technical support to align sustainability and community development programs. The community has also spearheded periodic beach cleanups.
Ayala Land Premier has proven the worth of its commitment to incorporate ecologically sound design principles in Anvaya Cove. The result is an aesthetically pleasing, environmentally sensitive, and multi-award-winning development that’s officially in a class of its own.

Ayala Land Premier (ALP) has recently launched Park Central Towers, a true icon of design.
Ayala Land Premier (ALP) has recently launched Park Central Towers, a true icon of design. Conceptualized by luxury boutique Singaporean design firm, SCDA in collaboration with storied architectural firm, Leandro V. Locsin Partners, the towers will soar above the crossroads of Paseo de Roxas and Makati Avenue. They will rest on a vast 15,860-sqm. parcel adjacent to an equally opulent Ayala Land Premier project, Roxas Triangle Towers. These prestigious, ultra luxury developments make up the Roxas Triangle block, which is turning out to be one of the most valuable residential real estate addresses in the country.
A glimpse of Park Central Towers’ well-appointed spaces can now be experienced at the project’s recently opened show flat located at the Glorietta 3 Park at Ayala Center, Makati City. Featuring a palatial three-bedroom Aquaview Villa Residence, the show flat exudes understated elegance sprawled across 289 square meters.
The paramount living experience promised by the ultra luxury development is evident as soon as one enters the unit’s own foyer, through a private lift. Upon entering the double doors, guests are ushered into a large living area, which boasts a double-volume ceiling height (5.7 meters) punctuated by a brass geometric chandelier. Wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows enliven the space by allowing natural light to flood in, at the same time offering the home’s residents’ sweeping views of the Makati skyline. A warm, muted palette of taupe, cream, and dark brown harmoniously complement the mix of various designer pieces and opulent textures in the space. This volume flows out into the unit’s own plunge pool and deck area. A statement lounge piece by Dedon anchors the space, and coupled with flooring of weather-resistant wood composite planks, give the deck the very airy, warm, and inviting feel of the outdoors.
The Aquaview Villa features a gourmet kitchen supplemented by an adjoining utility kitchen. The European-grade gourmet kitchen showcases custom cabinetry by Italian brand Varenna and a range hood, cooktop and oven by SMEG. In the dining area, a pair of antique wooden ceiling panels from an old church, preside over a long dining table made of local kamagong hardwood.
The more private spaces reflect the discerning lifestyles of its well-heeled residents, containing heirloom pieces, and various works of art. The two secondary bedrooms contain en-suite bathrooms with homogenous tile flooring and solid surface countertops. An entire wall of the master bedroom is clad in bronze mirror, complementing the king-sized bed. Twenty-four square meters are dedicated to the large master bath, which includes a striking walk-in-closet designed by Poliform. The bathroom’s wet area features a handheld shower and rain shower, as well as a stand-alone bath tub, affording residents an almost spa-like experience.
The interior design of the Park Central Towers show flat was envisioned by noted architect Jose Antonio Mendoza, who has evidently manifested Ayala Land Premier’s vision for the project. Striking the perfect balance between streamlined, contemporary pieces with timeless antiques ennobled by patina, Mendoza underscores the distinct value of an Ayala Land Premier residence: an investment that is valued today and for generations to come.
This latest Ayala Land Premier residential project is set to redefine the Makati skyline by 2024.
