The Lure of Luxury

Philippine property is booming. Plus the luxury sector is particularly buoyant. Uptake is reported to be high, which is a reflection of the state of the economy. GDP has increased by 7.1 percent for the third quarter of 2016. This is higher than either of the first two quarters.

Additionally the luxury segment is not influenced by budget restraints. However developers are unable to keep up with demand that is dominated mainly in the business districts particularly in Taguig and Makati.

The joy of living beyond urban centers

Most first time homebuyers are faced with the same question: should I get a single family house in a subdivision, or a unit in a high-rise residential tower?

If you have a budget of around 2 Million, you can already get a single family home far outside of Metro Manila and Metro Cebu to suit your requirements and tastes. Some buyers would still choose convenience, they would invest it on a stylish condo unit within city centers.

Although number of residential tower developments are increasing within many urban centers, there are those who would still choose the traditional house lot when it comes to home options, “said Romarico Alvarez, chair of PA properties.

And because of this some property developers are developing properties to cater to those buyers who would chose to have a single family house outside city centers.

One of which is Avida, a wholly-owned subsidiary of property giant Ayala Land, is developing a 22-hectare Avida Parkfield Settings Pulilan (located along Old Cagayan Valley Road, Brgy. Taal in Bulacan).

MANILA, Philippines – Property giant Ayala Land Inc. (ALI) aims to triple its real estate portfolio by 2020 as part of an investment program to boost its net income to P40 billion in  the next six years.

In a briefing with analysts, ALI unveiled its six-year business plan which will see its inventory of shopping malls , office buildings and  hotel rooms grow threefold by 2020 from its 2013 capacity.

This translates to 3.6 million square meters of shopping space, 1.8 million sqm of office space, as well as 6,000 hotel and resort keys.

ALI, which developed the Makati business district, has  earmarked a record high P100.3 billion for capital spending this year to bankroll its  aggressive expansion program aimed at growing its net income by an average of 20 percent annually.

Of the total programmed budget, P37.4 billion will go to the construction of residential projects, P31.5 billion for land acquisition, P14.7 billion for new mall developments, P5 billion for new office buildings, P2.8 billion for hotels, and P8.9 billion for others.

Based on the current completion schedule, ALI will grow its office space by an average of 16.4 percent annually from 2014 to 2019. Shopping space is projected to expand 17.4 percent  annually from 2014 to 2017.

Hotel and resort keys are expected  to grow at an annual average of 14.4 percent from 2014 to 2019.  This includes 497,000 sqm of shopping center space, 693,000 sqm of office space, and 2,066 hotel and resorts keys.

ALI said most of the sites for these expansion are already in place, making these targets more feasible.

To support its robust growth trajectory, ALI will continue to launch projects aggressively as well as capitalize on its  8,639 hectares of landbank across the country.

Last year, ALI reported a net income of P14.8 billion or 26 percent higher than 2013 on the back of hefty revenues from its residential offerings and shopping centers.

ALI has five residential brands — Ayala Land Premier which caters to the high end segment of the property market, Alveo (upper middle class), Avida (middle-income), Amaia (low-cost) and Bella Vita (socialized housing).
