Amaia Skies Shaw Christmas Party

Guys!! I had a lot of fun last Saturday.. I got to meet Ate M, and some of my neighbors here in Our Shaw, Mandaluyong location. I realized na masaya din po pala ang condo living. Take for example ito si Ate M, she is now enjoying her retirement with the convenience of location ng condominium na ito, and it’s proximity sa major malls like Shangrila, Megamall and Starmall. The joy of new friendships and convenience of location makes this an ideal investment for our retirees and empty nesters.

For installment sales condominium property rentals in the Philippines..This is an OPPORTUNITY that you can’t ignore.

As of May 2019, we have seen an increase in property prices for pre-selling projects in the Philippines. In USA, they call it, “ installment sales “ properties. These are properties that are paid in monthly installments while it’s in the construction stages.



Most of the condominium offerings in todays market, is more than the P 3.2 Million Pesos range ( or $ 61,540.00 ). 


Available Units of LIGHT RESIDENCES as of 2019-01-08


Exceeding this threshold, requires the purchaser to shell out an extra 18% on top of the selling price.




For property investors today, this has become a standard expense. But, what if you can take advantage of getting a unit without having to pay this added tax?




One of the projects that caught our attention in terms of the figures is a high rise property in Mandaluyong.


Here are the numbers..



We can compare Project 1  ( left column ) vs. Project 2 (right column) 

Revised Balikbayans Finale Presentation._Page_27


In the graph, the current rental rates of studio units in Project 1, is $ 400 a month. 


Project 2, has finished 2 towers already and we have closed rentals for the same price at both towers. Here are some photos of their finished project.

Their next project ( on the works ) is Tower 3, allows a buyer to make installment payments for $ 256 dollars in 3 and a half years.



After 3.5 years of payment, the financing can be paid through Pag Ibig. Pag Ibig is a government program which allows residential houses and lots to be mortgaged for up to P 6 M Pesos (or $ 115,385 dollars)


In my research, they are the only program that accepts mortgage applications from unit owners in this particular development while its ongoing construction. Usually, they only allow loans through re-sale of the condominium property.




This advantage, allows the buyer to access up to 30 years of payment which only results to lower amortizations.




The affordability of this project allows the unit to pay for itself. Lets take a look at the chart, once again..


Revised Balikbayans Finale Presentation._Page_27


Assuming an investor has already finished paying 256 dollars a month, he can apply the property through the Pag Ibig program. Choosing 20 or 30 years on Project B, would net a positive gross income ( Monthly Income $ 400, – Monthly Amortization 337 = + 63 dollars a month ), while Project A would not cover the monthly expense even if we stretch it for up to 30 years. (Monthly Income $ 400, – Monthly Amortization $ 715 = – 315) 


The potential for increase in value when it’s finished is also present ($ 96,387 versus $ 60,170).




These factors, together with the future development of a commercial mall 






(The strip mall will be redeveloped together with an upgraded casino)


and a bridge access connecting the highway to the Bonifacio Global City, allows a good opportunity for investors looking for opportunities in the market today.



If you want to take advantage of this opportunity, Call our office now.

12/98: Abba 98 Realty = Property Manager of the Models in the Philippines?



Our Success story # 12, is our representation on our rental services to model and celebrity, Luke Jickain, (who also starred in some hit TV shows.)


I remember, writing this piece 2 weeks ago. After watching an old story in Maalala mo Kaya (in Youtube).




When I saw him while watching a random classic MMK story.. I thought to myself, that “ this guy is familiar”. And so.. I checked him out in the credits of the show, and found out that he is  “ in fact ” one of our clients.


He has played roles in Misibis Bay and Maria la del Barrio.








But what I liked the most, was his acting chops in Beki Boxer.




Anyway, going back to his story.. and how we managed his condo unit. We tried to offer our services of renting it within the month. ( For some reason, two of our agents scrambled for this listing. I don’t know if the reason is about the “ prime location ”or the chance to talk to a model/ celebrity. )


The 2 agents “ burned” the phone lines to schedule viewings. And.. in 3 days, they finally found a tenant.


Amaaazingg right???


I could tell that we did a fantastic job with the added “motivation”  from our 2 agents.


Getting a tenant in 3 days, allowed him to send us this video testimonial. 


Here you go as he tells the full story.



I am proud to say that I have served Luke in all his requests and needs. It would be very nice to meet him again and ask for an autographed selfie. ( Joke! )


We wish him more projects + profitable investments.

3 ways to effectively rent your condo. unit in the Philippines ( on a daily basis. )

Technology has been an advantage for small business owners. As a manager, we utilize the power of the internet to attract potential tenants. Most of our tenants are negotiated on a 1 year term. For the past few months, we have been trying to create new markets for the benefit of our clients. One of which, is exploring the market for short term rentals. We have been trying different ways to capture this segment and so far these are my top 3 ways to effectively rent your condo unit in the Philippines.


Neutralize the design – It is okay to pick a theme for a unit. But, to be safe, we encourage our clients to pick neutral styles and colors. I’ve been witness to some designs created by our landlords, thinking that they will use it for the long term purpose rather than the mindset of their tenant.




Add additional beds – Adding beds in your unit, would attract a bigger market. Families and sets of friends would consider the unit solely because they provide the need to sleep more than 2 persons. Pinoy culture includes the vacation of families and groups of friends, making this our top 2 in the list.


and finally..


Add WIFI connection – You can eliminate the television, radio, books but not the WIFI on a bnb unit. Any millenial would try and look at another option if they discovered that WIFI is not included in their bnb. Come to think of it.. you can watch, listen, and read in their cellphones.


Hoped we helped you guys with these 3 important tips.
