Real Estate in the Philippines: 6 Ways They’re Profitable Despite the Pandemic
Investing in real estate in the Philippines remains profitable despite the Covid-19 pandemic. Here are 6 ways you win with Megaworld International properties.
- January 25, 2023
With Covid-19 encouraging people to hold on to their cash and remain liquid, you would have expected real estate in the Philippines to tank. It has not. In fact, investing in real estate properties in the Philippines has remained stable and profitable.
As a result of the pandemic and working from home, we see more and more investors looking to own properties not just within metropolitan centers but also outside of the major cities in the country.
Here are 6 ways you can win by investing in real estate in the Philippines when you choose Megaworld International properties.
History shows us that despite economic downturns, the value of real estate properties bounce back and appreciate over time. This makes investing in homes, house and lots, condominium units and hotel suites a sustainable investment. In fact, investing in real estate in the Philippines may even be considered an inflation hedge. Since economic downturns are never permanent, there will always be the other side of the spectrum which is economic expansion.
Most seasoned investors always say that it is never a good idea to put all your eggs in one basket unless you control the basket. In this case, real estate can be one of your baskets. If you invest well enough, real estate investments can even be the only basket you’ll ever need.
There’s another side to sustainability. That which refers to building in an environmentally friendly way. Among others, Megaworld’s townships will move towards keeping a 40% ratio of green and open spaces.
Whether you are looking for Philippines properties that are sustainable from an investment perspective or sustainable from a green perspective, Megaworld is your best bet.

ACCESSIBILITY OF FUNDS AND LOWER INTEREST RATES
In contrast to what most would have perceived, the accessibility of funds has become easier as financial technology’s (fintech) presence skyrocketed in the country. Banking has never been this seamless until the pandemic happened. The banking industry has continuously innovated to reach out to more consumers and make it easier for them to do their financial transactions. As banks grow their market share, they have also substantially affected the real estate industry. Most banks have also offered lower interest rates for their consumers amidst the pandemic.
The strength of Megaworld and its track record for quality property development will surely be of great value for Filipinos from all over the world who are looking to own real estate in the Philippines through bank loans.
As mentioned earlier, history tells us that real estate is one of the (if not the only) investments that appreciate as time goes by. When you have invested in the right company (Here’s your clue: Megaworld), your property will most likely appreciate because of proven track records and market performance. We have already blazed the trail for you, would you still want to risk an untested path?
To maximize or grain on property appreciation, consider investing early in the development phase. Properties in the pre-selling stage may be offered at friendlier rates and huge discounts.

Ever wondered why seasoned investors “earn while they sleep?” It is because of passive investments. Real estate can also be considered as one such passive investment. Apart from the value of the property appreciating, you can also buy real estate in the Philippines with the end in view of renting them out to tenants. As landlord, you can expect to collect rental fees every month.
In the case of Megaworld’s hotels, you won’t even have to worry about property management!
The pandemic reminded us of what is truly important. In 2019, we would have answered differently when we talk about priorities. When 2020 turned its pages, we realized that our priority will always be the people we care for and how convenient their lives are because they are our reason for working so hard, and providing for their needs is our topmost priority.
One look at the master development plans of Megaworld projects is enough to see that the convenience and satisfaction of customers are at the center of our design, architecture and construction.
Living in a township where everything is within reach definitely gives us convenience and peace of mind. In Megaworld, we offer a complete live-work-play-learn-shop lifestyle that makes us the country’s leading and most prominent township developer. During a pandemic or post-pandemic, a township is a huge advantage for investors or end users to keep in mind in real estate investments.
Real estate is a game changer, not only on the macro scale but also in the lives of all the people living in it. Our lifestyles have considerably changed because of the pandemic, and investing in a property where our family and loved ones feel safe and secure is key to our own peace of mind.
The pandemic also reminds us that the key to living a healthy and happy life is in the quality of life and investment that we have. When we invest wisely, we know that no pandemic can stop us from achieving our goals.
And, of course, on top of all that, if you live in a safe and secure space because you invested in the right property, you do not have to worry about any zombie apocalypse. Just saying.
