Residential properties in Makati City are always in demand not just among Filipinos looking for a place near their offices, but also for expatriates who want a home away from home.
Condominium units near Makati’s central business districts (CBDs) are always promising to investors who seek handsome returns for their property – after all, the rental market is always bustling.
Makati remains the Philippines’ largest central business district, and with it comes a deluge of foreign nationals detailed in the city.
Data from the Philippine Statistics Authority showed a sustained increase in the number of foreign and multinational corporations in the Philippines, rising from 13,553 in 2018 to 17,270 in early 2022. According to DOLE-Bureau of Local Employment, in 2022, there were more than 50,000 expats who held alien employment permits in the National Capital Region.
Colliers has also observed expat residential leasing picking up in CBDs including Makati with demand led by those working for business process outsourcing (BPO) companies, shared service centers, multilateral aid agencies, as well as logistics and manufacturing industries.
Makati has cemented its status as a preferred city among foreign firms given its investor-friendly policies, advanced infrastructure, and ease of access. The city is also the location of choice for members of the diplomatic community, with Makati home to 44 embassies and 34 consulates catering to the needs of their citizens away from their motherland.
The rise of the so-called “global nomads,” or foreigners who travel the world while fulfilling their jobs remotely, has also contributed to the ever-growing expat population in the Philippines.
The expat community broadens the renter’s market within Makati City. They prefer to live close to their workplace and are willing to pay the premium for convenience.
Fortis Residences, a premier condominium complex being developed by DMCI Homes Exclusive, is an accessible and comforting home for expats and global nomads looking to relocate to Makati City. The mixed-use development provides spacious units with top-notch furnishings and relaxing amenities that are fitting for a second home.
