Why People Are Investing Now: Real Estate Appreciates in Value

If you would ask a seasoned investor whether you should invest now, their answer would always be YES. A veteran investor looks ahead and sees the future of investment beyond its current state. As real estate value appreciates over time, they are able to generate passive income depending on their investment.

According to the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, the Residential Real Estate Price Index (RREPI) rose 6.5% year on year in the third quarter. This is faster compared to the 6.3% rate expansion in the same quarter in 2021. With this growing rate of yearly increase, more real estate investors, locally and internationally, are interested in the Philippine real estate market. 

How to Become an Investor in 2023: Choose your Investment Wisely! 

There are many ways to invest in the real estate market. Each style has its strengths, but not all setups are for everyone. Here’s a helpful guide to get you started on some of the most common real estate investments!

1. Rental Properties

The most traditional and safe real estate investment would be to purchase a residential or commercial space and rent it out. While it sounds simple, it is a longstanding relationship with your tenant where you can make monthly rental income and get an ROI on your investment in the long run. 

For some property owners, their strategy would be to take out a loan, purchase a property, rent it out, and use the monthly payments to pay for the loan and amortization.

2. REITs

REITs or Real Estate Investment Trusts are corporations for small investors to profit from large–scale properties such as hotels, malls, offices, and more without having to pay the whole cost. According to Investopedia, REITs can generate a steady recurring income for investors without having to buy, manage, or finance the actual properties themselves. 

In the Philippines, land developers list their shares in the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) for investors to buy shares of the REIT. From there, investors will get paid in dividends each time the REIT produces income. 

3. House or Condo flipping

This investment strategy is for those who are creative, have a budget to spare, and love makeover shows. In this strategy, investors purchase a property and increase its market value by renovating the unit. Afterward, they will resell the property for a sizable profit. 

This only works if you have an eye for units at a great location, price, and trusted developer.
