Anissa Heights, DMCI Homes' new residential condominium development in P. Zamora...

Investing in real property is always a good idea for people looking to preserve and grow their wealth in the long term –– and for good reason. Real estate values typically appreciate through the years, bucking the trend for other investment vehicles like stocks, cash, or cars.
Real property also lets you enjoy attractive yields which may not be achievable through other investment vehicles. Acquiring real estate can do two things in one go: it preserves the value of your money and grows it.
Putting your hard-earned savings into a property will provide potentially higher returns than what you would have earned by keeping your money in the bank. Property values have appreciated by 25% between 2017 and 2022, according to Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas data. In contrast, total returns of the Philippine Stock Exchange index was at –3.44% in the last five years, according to a report, meaning shareholders incurred losses.
Property investments are also a way to keep pace with inflation, or the rising prices of basic goods. Rising property valuations mean you can realize a greater value compared to your initial investment, countering the effect of inflation which would have reduced your purchasing power had you kept your money in cash.
Property prices are relatively stable even during the economic recession due to COVID-19 restrictions. Prices of condominium units saw a 5.8% increase in 2020, followed by a modest 1% decline in 2021. By 2022, condominium prices rose by 13.7%, with a faster increase recorded for developments within Metro Manila.
Another unique benefit of acquiring a property is that you can make full use of the asset even when it’s not yet fully paid. With just a downpayment, you can already move into your new home or rent it out to a tenant. This is different from investing in the money market where you only generate profits as a percentage of your invested capital. With real estate, you can realize early gains even while you are paying it off – and that’s how you maximize value beginning day one of turnover!
Early birds in property acquisition are also rewarded with bigger yields. Properties have a high resale value with margins the largest for assets bought during the pre-selling phase. Owners realize the higher valuation between pre-selling and ready for occupancy phases as well as further appreciation once the surrounding area is developed.
Buying real estate usually entails a high cost, but there’s a way to reduce that financial burden. A property for lease can effectively pay for its own mortgage in part or in full at the right rental rate. For condominium units within and surrounding Makati City, the country’s premier business district, average yields are between 7-10% ranging across the affordable, mid-tier, to luxury property segments. This is definitely more attractive than leaving your funds under time deposits, where you’ll be lucky to find a deal with a 1-2% return.
High rental yields and return on investment largely depend on the location and quality of the property. DMCI Homes’ track record of high quality and on-time delivery of developments will allow you to make the most of your investment that’s in line with the committed turnover dates to property owners.
Properties developed by DMCI Homes enjoy handsome returns as these are conveniently located near central business districts and within peaceful residential communities, making it attractive to many potential tenants.
