PLC International Marketing Networks has revealed that some institutional investors are trying to diversify their property portfolios through areas like Southeast Asia, China and beyond – with the Philippines heading the list, then Thailand, Japan, China, and Singapore property investments comprising in some portfolios.
In the UK,”Investors are moving to new areas to find value” stated Beth Collingz, Global Marketing Director of PLC International Marketing Networks located in Metro Manila and Cebu in the Philippines. “More and more of clients for Condotel Investments are coming from the UK. There has been a distinct market shift from US based clients over the past few months and we see that trend continuing over the winter months of 2006 and on into 2007 has Sterling continues its increase in value over the US Dollar.
“A great deal of the interest has been driven by the comparatively inexpensive market prices in the Philippines in comparison to Europe, especially UK Housing costs, and the simple payment options available for our Condotel Developments, but there are other factors, too.
Offshore Property Investors, Foreign baby boomers as well as overseas Filipinos, are looking for ways to maximize their return on investments as they approach retirement, and so are buying second homes, particularly Condotel Investments where they can utilize the Condo for holidays and rent it out through our In-House Condotel Management when they are not using the unit thereby gaining rental incomes which on the current purchase prices, give a projected ROI on their investments of some 12-16% based upon the mode of payment for your unit”
Metro Manila remains a popular choice with international buyers and institutional investors. Collingz says clients tell her that it makes more sense to buy in a year-round vacation destinations and business centers. Lancaster – The Atrium Condotel developments by Pacific Concord Properties located in Shaw Boulevard, Metro Manila – fits the bill with all it offers to International buyers.
Accessibility is also a factor. “Flights from London to Manila, for instance, average just 16 hoursadd to that the many airline specials and it’s easy to see why this region is becoming an international community.” Unlike other offshore rental properties, where the rental market is largely seasonal, in the Philippines there is a strong market for rental properties year round. This gives buyers greater flexibility in choosing when to use and when to rent their property. The strong rental/second home market also has resulted in a proliferation of professional property managers and rental agents, making property ownership and rental easy. Pacific Concord Properties Inc with it’s flagship Lancaster Condotel Developments fit’s the bill.
