In the metro, it cannot be denied that the expanding projects of developers are popping everywhere. These expanding projects are in fact a good news, because these developers sees the future growth of the economy and the future development in the area. One of the great things in investing in real estate is that it's one form of passive income. But with many projects, being developed where do we actually put our money?
I've particularly set my eyes on Arca South. Here are my 3 main reason why I think Arca South is a great investment.
|Arca South in the Future|
1. It is being developed by the Ayala Land Inc. Do I need to say more? Ayala Land had proven its credibility in the market for as long as we can remember. The company started in the industry dated back in 1988's (please see profile info here), and had been expanding projects ever since. We've heard of its projects: Ayala Land Premier, Alveo, Avida, Amaia, and BellaVita. Ayala Land also have contributed in the growth of the following cities: Makati, Taguig, Cebu, Nuvali, and etc., Ayala Land Inc had already made its name in the industry of real estate, if you wanted to feel comfortable as an investor, an Ayala Land project is a sure way to go.
2. They are in pre-development phase. If a project is still in a pre-developed phase the price is still affordable compared to when the project is already completed. One logical example of this scenario is when the BGC was still under developed. A payment terms in that phase is not too painful. However, considering that the BGC is one of the most developed cities, a property, a rent there probably costs as high as they skyscrapers in the area. In fact, according Global Property Guide "In Bonifacio Global City the average price for a 3-bedroom condominium increased by 9.5% to PHP 133,175 (US$ 2,968) per sq. m. (5.3% inflation-adjusted), or a 1.1% q-o-q growth." (reference) This kind of scenario would probably be the same once the Arca South has been finished (projected by 2018). Currently, Ayala Land's AVIDA allows 20% downpayment that is stretched to 36 months payment. an estimated 7000 - 8000 monthly (may vary depending on your terms) may not be a bad investment, if the property will be projected to hike in price once the project is completed.
3. Where it is Located. The Arca South will be located in FTI. The Ayala Land will revolutionized the once known 'bagsakan' to be the next business district in the South of Manila. Additionally, the location will also be accessibility to the three major infrastructures: the Skyway and C5/C6 connection road, the Skyway Exit, and the NLEX-SLEX connection road' (Philstar) makes the place 'in sync' to major cities.
One of the things that others worry about the place is if it's standing in Fault Line, if this is also your worry, fear not because it was certified by the PHILVOCS that Arca South is not standing along the fault line (See Certification)
If you plan to invest at all, I would recommend to check out the payment terms immediately. Time is expensive, do not wait until the project gets developed as the price increases by 3% per 3 to 6 months. All in all, Arca South is one of the next cities to check out for those who wanted to invest in real estate.
If you feel that this may be the next investment for you, feel free to contact me, and let's check out.
