When scouting Southeast Asia for promising investment destinations, one should look no further than the Philippines. The country with its remarkable economic growth momentum over the past years offers plenty of rewarding sectors for investment, one of which is real estate.

The Philippines has made itself a name as being a new destination of choice for foreign investors, given the country’s sound macroeconomic fundamentals and growth prospects, its favorable demographics and the supportive stance by the government towards incentives and investment security for foreigners who put their money into the Filipino economy.

No wonder that the amount of foreign direct investments into the Philippines reached a new all-time high at $10 billion at the end of 2017, up by more than 21 per cent compared to the previous year, a record that the Philippine central bank attributed to “overall positive investor sentiment.”

And praise is not running dry. A recent ranking by U.S. News and World, a media group that publishes news, rankings and analyses on a number of topics, listed the Philippines as one of the “best countries to invest In” for 2018 out of a list of 80 countries globally, citing “a young and hardworking workforce, an excellent inclusive growth momentum, an expanding middle class, politically stable environment, strong and popular leadership, fiscal discipline, stable monetary policy, ASEAN membership, an achievable infrastructure programme, a strong anti-corruption drive and improved revenue collection.”

Infrastructure is expected to remain a sustainable driver for growth in the Philippines, given President Rodrigo Duterte’s massive “Build.Build.Build” initiative which he says would “usher in the golden age of infrastructure in the Philippines” and at the same time spill over to other industries, particularly construction and real estate.

Real estate is one of the most obvious and rewarding options for foreign investors, owing to a straightforward purchasing process, clear legal framework to achieve property ownership, ease of obtaining a visa if one wants to stay in the country and use the property, as well as appreciation potential in most urban areas that outpaces other destinations in Southeast Asia.
Century Properties Group, one of the largest real estate developers in the Philippines with more than 32 years of experience in the market, is a good example as to where to start property-hunting. The company is well known for creating one-of-a-kind lifestyle living experiences in their residential and office projects that come with a unique sales proposition and are ideal for foreigners with a discerning approach to property buying.

Among Century Properties’ most notable developments are resort-like properties such as Azure Urban Resort Residences with unique features such as a man-made beach and facilities including an open park, lap pool, multiple playgrounds, sports areas and a beach club inspired by Paris Hilton that combine living with a holiday-like well-being environment. Another outstanding project, Acqua Private Residences, is designed with lush greenery all over the place, making it a tranquil oasis to live and enjoy in the midst of a hectic city. See more about Century Properties’ developments and their unique features here, and feedback from investors here. The latter is a video in which Hiromi Tsuneizumi, a proud Japanese homeowner in the Azure project, explains her satisfying experience with her property investment.

Also available are units at Century Spire Offices and Centuria Medical Makati, the former a part-residential, part-commercial tower designed by Daniel Libeskind and interior designed by Armani/CASA, the latter a state-of-the-art outpatient and wellness facility. Both are PEZA-accredited, are located within the financial hub of Makati, and feature exceptional design and amenities – making for solid and unique investment opportunities.

 

And there is more to come: Since Century Properties is continuously challenging the status quo of residential developments, the company is always open for new concepts and recently ventured into the affordable housing segment with its PHirst Park Homes development which is targeting first home buyers or investors looking for opportunities in this segment, which requires less capital but generally offers more rewarding yields. Another growth segment for Century Properties is tourism, leisure and hospitality after launching Batulao Artscapes, dubbed “the world’s first livable art park”. Located near the holiday town of Tagaytay, the expansive community features designer homes and outstanding vacation amenities.

Investors looking for the special opportunity in property investment in the Philippines are virtually spoilt for choice when inspecting the ample Century Properties portfolio. Moreover, an investment in Century Properties developments is not only a wise decision in terms of appreciation potential due to their singular characteristics and excellent building quality, but also in terms of livability and exceptional lifestyle amenities.
