You will need to think about where the property is in terms of its proximity to local public transport, shops, nature, attractions and restaurants and you can choose to buy a property somewhere secluded and out of the way or in the center of a busy town or city.

Places such as Cebu are always popular and you should try and find a property that comes ready to use to avoid the hassle of having to do work to it before anyone can move in.

You can look online to find a property that matches your requirements and you will need to consider the following:

  • Your budget
  • When you want to buy
  • If you want to buy an existing building or get one built
  • Whether you want a condominium, villa, flat, apartment or townhouse

Some properties in the Philippines will come with shared facilities such as a swimming pool or communal garden, and investors looking for something that will appeal to renters should buy property that will be in high demand. That means you will need to decorate the property so it appeals to the masses rather than your own personal taste and a property located fairly close to entertainment districts is also a good idea in terms of making sure it is appealing.


From condos with shared facilities through to holiday villas with private pools and gardens, there are lots of different types of properties that you can invest in throughout the Philippines to get a good value for money investment.
