Living from a great distance is a big challenge for Filipino expats working miles away from their family and country. Considered as modern-day heroes, Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) sacrifice a great deal to provide a good life for those they left back at home.
With all the sacrifices they have taken, almost all OFWs aim to spend their earnings in the best way possible, so they can provide a good life for their family and so that they can be reunited as quickly as possible. One of the ways they can do this is by turning hard-earned money into worthwhile investments, such as buying a property in the Philippines.
Real Estate in the Philippines
According to the 2021 first quarter trend reports of real estate platform Lamudi, demands for housing a step out of the Metro showed a 21% increase compared to the start of 2020. This is driven by the desire to invest in a home environment that promotes a healthy and secured lifestyle, a property investment turned into a permanent home and one where safety, comfort, and stability are experienced by the whole family.
Real estate is one of the top investment picks with its low risk yet high return potential. It offers a safety net against inflation as properties increase in value over the years. More than being a permanent home, income generation is also one of the leading factors for horizontal property investors. Taking advantage of strategically placed subdivisions—those closer to prime and business spots, and turning owned properties into rental ones can boost alternative income for buyers.
In line with the ''Build, Build, Build'' program of the government, 40 flagship projects nationwide will be done by 2022 with 11 completed as of mid-2021, according to Presidential Adviser on Flagship Programs and Projects Secretary Vivencio Dizon.
This shows a positive effect on investment choices and opportunities. The infrastructure progress increases the value of a property even outside the Metro, given the upsides of connectivity, quality of life, and ease of travel time from anywhere in the country.
With the on-going health crisis and travel restrictions, buying a property today is made easy and fast, as online innovations developed safe and swift alternatives when owning a house. It also made investing from great distances possible.
