Some of us may be contemplating as early as now on what types of big projects can we expect from major real estate developers next year and beyond.
Based on the Philippine Statistics Authority’s sectoral Quarterly Economic Indices for Q2 2015, Philippine real estate remained the top employer among all industries despite posting a slower growth of 5.3 percent in gross revenue in the second quarter of 2015.
The real estate market remains bullish despite slower-than-expected economic growth this year!
The Philippine economy grew at a slower rate of 5.2 percent in the first quarter of 2015, and 5.6 percent in the second, causing experts to lower their end-of-2015 forecast to around 6 percent. However, despite the turn to less impressive numbers, the local real estate market continues to thrive, and investing in real estate remains safe and ideal for the remainder of the year and for the foreseeable future.

Lamudi search data shows a growing trend to buy among Filipino online property hunters
Global property website, Lamudi Philippines, looked into its third quarter 2015 search data and found interesting observations. According to the website, among 18- to 24-year-olds, there is an equal proportion of property hunters looking for for-rent and for-sale properties (50.2 versus 49.8 percent).
But quite interestingly, there is a tendency for property hunters to check out for-sale properties online as they get older. Lamudi data shows that among 25- to 34-year-old users, 57.3 percent are checking out for-sale properties in the website, compared to 42.7 percent of users who look for for-rent properties.
The preference to buy is even higher in the 35–44, 45–54, and 55–64 age groups; Lamudi data noted that 70.8, 72.6, and 71.1 percent of the website’s users, respectively, are checking out for-sale properties, while only 29.2, 27.4, and 28.9 percent are looking for for-rent properties, respectively.
According to Lamudi Philippines managing director Jacqueline van den Ende, these findings are consistent with observations made in Europe and the United States, where people have the tendency to buy as they get older.
