The Philippines, it seems, is inching closer to a gradual recovery.
With the worst believed to be behind us, many are now preparing to slowly gain back that abruptly disrupted momentum. One sector that is expected to benefit from these green shoots of recovery is real estate. As the pandemic put into the limelight the value of having one’s own safe space, individuals have now started to reassess priorities, making home purchase a top priority.
“We believe that we have already been through the worst of the pandemic and we are now well on our way to a recovery. It may not be easy, there may still be a few challenges along the way. But with vaccination being done in various parts of the country and government programs being implemented to help pump prime the economy, it really won’t be long before we again see a vibrant and thriving Philippines,” said Sta. Lucia Land Inc. President Exequiel Robles.
“For the real estate sector, we are quite hopeful to see a stronger comeback despite a few setbacks. We share the view of property analysts that the residential market will continue to display a steady rebound. After all, if there’s one thing that the pandemic taught us, it’s the value of having a primary home, and even a secondary one where you can take refuge,” he added.
In fact, resort-type developments and nature inspired communities gained traction among buyers as many suddenly saw the value of a safe sanctuary, where there’s enough breathing space, ample room to move about, and an environment that would allow for a healthy mind and body.
Besides modern conveniences, buyers nowadays also look for home investments that will allow them to commune with nature, reap its healing benefits, and at some point even enjoy nature’s bounty. Resort developments have been on the radar of both investors and homebuyers looking to indulge in the soothing vibe of water, waves and sand especially after being locked up in their homes due to the lockdowns.
“While Sta. Lucia Land is mostly know for its lot offerings in gated, master-planned communities we also have a number of resort communities and nature inspired projects, which serve as a perfect antidote to the challenges brought about by the pandemic. Sta. Lucia Land has various lake communities that offer the perfect setting to achieve that much coveted serene lifestyle. We know how nature and water can calm the mind and body, that is why we made sure to keep such projects part of our property portfolio,” Robles explained.
Such projects in Sta. Lucia Land’s portfolio include Nasacosta Resort & Residences in Nasugbu, Batangas; Club Morocco in Subic, Zambales; Aquamira in Tanza, Cavite; The Lake at St. Charbel, also in Cavite; La Huerta Farms and Residences in Laguna; and Las Colinas in Toril, Davao, among many others.
“We have already built a number of projects that would allow our buyers to live comfortably and safely. These developments provide comfort and convenience no matter what the season maybe. The pandemic has definitely altered the way we live and do things, but one thing is for sure, we would always long to come home to a place where we feel most secure, safe, loved and healed. And rest assured that we, at Sta. Lucia Land, will continue to build and create such communities for you,” Robles concluded.
