RECAP: Latest Property and Lifestyle Trends

Here are some notable changes that have emerged since 2020, helping you inform your investment decisions: 

Holistic Home and Lifestyle

In 2020, property seekers started focusing on improving the quality of their lives. Being indoors at most times, they wanted to continue thriving physically, mentally, socially, and emotionally. This translated to their preferences for wellness-focused amenities like swimming pools, gyms, gardens, and balconies.

The Rise of Suburban Homes

The scarcity of space in Metro Manila was also evident when everyone and everything needed to be at home. Growing families considered properties in nearby provinces as they can provide more space and a tranquil atmosphere that’s hard to find in the metro. 

In early 2021, experts projected that Region IV-A provinces like Rizal would see a strong property interest.

CBD Renters Prefer Upscale Units 

Just before 2022, Lamudi recorded an uptick in leads across Metro Manila CBDs. Renters were specifically looking at condo units in higher price segments. This trend aligns with the shift from a fully remote to hybrid and on-site work.

Tech is Essential 

Safety and convenience are the main reasons why seekers are turning to tech-enabled homes. Digital innovations in condos allow residents to avoid high-touch surfaces and carry out work activities at home (thanks to WiFi and business centers). 

Lamudi observed that tech and security amenities grew in popularity. In 2022, these accounted for nearly 20% of amenity searches.
