For property seekers in the post-pandemic era, this is the ultimate guide to knowing why now is the best time to invest in residential land.
In 2022, the Philippine economy experienced its strongest growth rate in over 40 years, providing a significant boost to the real estate market and presenting a promising opportunity for investors. The robust economic performance not only reflects a positive economic cycle but also signals a favorable environment for real estate investment.
Despite inflationary pressures and global slowdown concerns, residential property prices demonstrated remarkable resilience, indicating the market’s potential for profitability.
According to a study by Colliers, the substantial inflow of remittances in the Philippines in 2022 amounting to USD 32.7 billion not only supports household spending but also drives demand for residential properties, offering stability and fueling economic activity in the real estate sector.
Furthermore, the anticipated return of tourism, with airlines aiming to restore pre-pandemic capacity by March 2023, presents a lucrative prospect for leisure property owners.
These developments make the Philippine real estate market an attractive and rewarding investment destination for investors seeking growth and stability.
Aboitiz Land’s residential developments are strategically situated in regions outside of the metro, and are in high demand, presenting excellent opportunities for investment and growth in the real estate market.
With the Philippine government’s focus on attracting large investments in infrastructure, the outlook for the real estate market points towards continued growth. Php 75 billion worth of infrastructure projects are scheduled for completion in 2023 to support the economy.
Land in the middle of the infrastructure and growth center booms in Central Luzon
The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) is promoting Central Luzon as a manufacturing and logistics hub. Its infrastructure and emerging growth centers are set to benefit Ajoya communities in Pampanga, Tarlac, and Nueva Ecija.
New infrastructure developments have increased accessibility to the region, making it a great opportunity for homebuyers looking for a profitable real estate investment. The Metro Manila Skyway Stage 3 and Southeast Metro Manila Expressway have greatly reduced traffic congestion, while the Central Luzon Link Expressway and Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway provide better connectivity to different provinces in the region.
The NLEX Harbor Link Segment 10 and the NLEX-SLEX Connector Road also offer easier access to key economic zones and business districts in the country. Meanwhile, the development of the Clark International Airport and the upcoming Bulacan Airport offers more options for domestic and international travel. New Clark City and Northwin Global City will also provide new opportunities for business and tourism in the region.
Ajoya Cabanatuan and Ajoya Capas have experienced significant value appreciation of up to 160% and 77%, respectively, since their launch in 2018, while Ajoya Pampanga, launched in 2019, has also seen a 90% increase in value.
Monthly payments start at Php 6,800 monthly for Ajoya Capas, Php 4,600 monthly for Ajoya Pampanga, and Php 3,600 monthly for Ajoya Cabanatuan.
Land urban and rural living in South Luzon
South Luzon is consistent in attracting property buyers as it becomes even more accessible for property seekers from Metro Manila. Its close proximity to the metro lets residents have the hustle and bustle of urban life while they enjoy the captivating sceneries of rural life. The Bataan-Cavite Interlink Bridge is a massive infrastructure project that connects the provinces of Bataan and Cavite, reducing travel time and facilitating trade and commerce between the two provinces. Another notable infrastructure project in South Luzon is the SLEX-NLEX Connector Road which offers a faster and more convenient way to travel to key destinations in South Luzon, including Batangas, Laguna, and Quezon provinces.
A notable trend in South Luzon is the increasing demand for leisure properties. As more individuals seek recreational and tourist destinations in this region, leisure properties are experiencing a surge in popularity.
This presents a promising opportunity for investors to capitalize on the growing demand for Seafront Residences, our exclusive beachfront community in San Juan, Batangas.

Meanwhile, Lipa as a real estate destination is evident as it drives nearly one-third of property inquiries in Batangas. The majority of these leads originate from the CALABA (Cavite, Laguna, and Batangas) region and Metro Manila, indicating a strong interest in the area. At Lipa, the Aboitiz-owned LIMA Estate is Batangas’ first integrated Central Business District that encompasses industrial, residential, and commercial components. Serving as its residential component is The Villages at Lipa.
