Hot property picks in the Metro


Real estate is always a valuable asset addition both as a passive and active investment portfolio. The best thing about this space is they are not making any more of it, making each piece of investment unique.

Indeed, Department of Finance Secretary Benjamin E. Diokno indicated an expected uptick in property sales volume this year, with many Filipinos forecasted to invest in the sector.

This would push the demand for real estate services — agents, lawyers, and associates. He also noted that real estate services focusing on commercial and residential property segments would rebound and make way for adopting the new normal, where hybrid works and flexible office spaces prevail.

True enough, despite the disruptive impact of the global health crisis on people and the economy, Filipino investors remain keen on acquiring real estate properties as part of their long-term plans. As expected, clear as day, Metro Manila remains a hot place due to its convenience, albeit pricey.

Data released by real estate brokerage services firm Leechiu Property Consultants in December revealed that residential property prices in Metro Manila last year more than doubled that of the price points in 2021 because the pandemic stalled project launches.

The data also noted that prices of older projects in the metropolitan grew annually by as much as 250 percent per square meter in the fourth quarter of last year alone.

Units launched throughout the year, on the other hand, clocked in at 10,009 or 61 percent lower than the 25,911 in 2021, while units sold fell by seven percent to 35,539 from 38,065 the previous year. The prices of newly launched projects also increased by 215 percent.

LPC said the real estate sector would pick up even further this year. Riding on this growth, many investors looking for worthwhile investments will surely be on a shopping spree. From budget-friendly to high-end, here are five of Metro Manila’s most sought-after properties:
