One For The Money: Luxury Condominiums In Metro Manila To Invest In This 2019

One for the money: Luxury condominiums in Metro Manila to Invest in this 2019

Like wild mushrooms in a fertile land, daunting skyscrapers across the bustling city of Metro Manila have been sprouting hither, thither and yon. Over the past few years, these artistic tangible manifestations of the country’s thriving economy have been the driving force of budding industries such as Real Estate and Construction. It is only sensible why there is an increasing demand from investors vying for condominiums as both businesses are major contributors of the country’s economic growth trajectory. As Metro Manila continues to be swarmed by infrastructures anchored by the incumbent administration’s ambitious Build, Build, Build program, investing in some of the Metro’s finest and most expensive luxury condominiums is a first-row-seat-kind-of business edge.


2018 was a good year for industries whose profit and target market rely on infrastructures. As numbers don’t lie, the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) recorded a total of 16.7 percent growth for both private and public constructions in the third quarter of 2018, faster than the 4.0 percent growth reported in the previous year. Even more, from 2019 to 2021, Colliers International Philippines has predicted a completion of 8,300 new condominium units per year amounting to 142,000 units by 2021 or 33 percent higher as compared to 2017. As the number of construction accelerates this 2019, the competitive market for luxury condominiums poses at greater heights as well.

The surge in the number of residential building constructions as reported by the PSA during the third quarter of 2018 places a positive bearing on investors and real estate developers. An increment of 30,638 or 16.8 percent total of residential constructions from the 26,227 projects delineated during the same period of 2017. Luxury condominiums across Central Business Districts are still the major proponent of this data. Colliers projected a flat to marginal rise of 0.3 to 0.4 percent in rents per annum from 2019 to 2021 for the three business districts – Makati CBD, Fort Bonifacio, and Rockwell.

Despite the ramped up supply in the residential market coming from a mixed of offshore gaming employees and local professionals, occupancy rate remains stable for this year. Data from PSA showed that most types of residential constructions recorded a staggering two-digit increase in number as follows: residential condominiums (80.8%), apartment/accessoria (29.9%) and single-type houses (15.3%). Colliers has also disclosed a 1.1 percent increase in average rent for a prime three-bedroom in Makati CBD, while rents in Fort Bonifacio and Rockwell also rose by 0.6% and 1.4%, respectively.

"We do not see a significant rise in rents over the next 12 to 36 months as we still expect a substantial number of new condominium units being completed across Metro Manila during the period." - Colliers International Philippines
