It is also expected that the Philippine property market will attain a double-digit increase in growth, stated Leechiu Property Consultants (LPC). The Philippines is becoming a hub for real estate investing.

Over the past year, the current stock of office space was increased by an estimated 1 million square meters, and of the nine-point-one million office space existing, 72% of it has been leased. According to, Business Process Outsourcing (BPO), Flexible Workspace providers, and online gaming areas were the leading space occupiers as of the 4Q 2018. On the other hand, office rent upheld its growth due to solid demand.

For the residential sector, its supply has also increased by 35 thousand units, which in total, adds up to 338 thousand units. Due to the newly completed housing units from the upper-middle to luxury sectors in Makati and Bonifacio Global City, demand in these areas has increased rapidly. Condominiums and other subdivision properties are becoming a hit in today’s market. These options appeal greatly to small families as well as to singles who want to secure their hard-earned money.
