RE is a good investment and diversification but should be taken with caution. My only advise is that don't bet all your money in RE. A good gauge is that RE should not be more than half of your portfolio so that if things didn't go as planned you still have other investments. Getting a loan to cover for RE purchase is way too risky especially nowadays interest rate is high. My two cents. :cool2:

In my opinion, ok naman ang mag invest ng townhouse sa Makati if nasa bank lang nman ang money mo earning 1% per annum. . Marami talaga ang empleyado sa Makati na cant afford bumili ng house, so nag rerent nalang. Problem is, mejo mataas na ngayon. U are right, 6-7M na ngayon ag rate ng brandnew townhouse, may mas mataas pa jan. Tapos mapapa rent mo lang ng 20k? (well vs bank time deposit naka 4K lang monthly income mo). Kaya lang tagal parin ROI diba?

A bit time consuming investment. Mas hands on din ang monitoring. Not to mention regular fees and maintenance expenses.

Salamat sa mga replies. Oo nga matagal ang ROI halimbawa 7M pesos worth townhouse tapos paupahan 20k-25k parang almost 4% annually ng 7M. Ewan ko lang kung in demand ang townhouse for rent sa Makati.

Hello! By the way, I'm a real estate investor. One of the properties that I own is a commercial/residential townhouse in malate (beside DLSU Angelo King). Bought it in year 2004 for 3.5M current price now is 7M. My tenant for 7 years wants to purchase the property on that said amount but I declined. Im happy and content with the 40k income per month.

Townhouse is still a very good investment. But of course location must be the number one priority in choosing one.

a perfect example that you raised in your comment.

2004 US dollar to peso rate is between 55 to 56.  Let's take set it at 55.50 (3.5 million peso divide by 55.50) is about $63,063. 

10 years after or 2014, the US dollar to peso trades now at 45.  So 7 million peso divide by 45, it is about $155,555.  Under this rate, there is a return of 146% in 10 years if you sell it now.  This does not include yet the monthly earnings on rentals which brings in an additional 6.8% per annum at current exchange rate.

a good investment indeed.

Yes indeed @ Bauer! Thanks.

It was originally planned as a boarding house type rental business. It has 4 bedrooms, 2 double deck beds per room, air conditioned and with free wifi before. 1 room earns as high as 28k per months when full but the stress of running it made me think of just renting it out as a whole. It's been occupied ever since by a business establishment.

I'll share some tips on real estate investing:

1. Let the market dictate the real value of your rental income. Be true to your self, do not make assumptions on rental prices.

2. If you can afford it, concentrate on prime properties which gives tremendous return.

3. Cash is king. Negotiate.

4. Practice a harmonious relationship with your tenants, property managers and employees. Act  ASAP when there is a problem.

5. And the most important thing of all. Brokers are partners and your lifeline in this business. Be nice to them, give extra bonus whenever possible.

Real estate is a rewarding investment. It can be the greatest legacy to your kids for years to come. However, it's a burden when not planned properly. Also, the perks of having multiple properties is you can use it as often as you want when it's vacant, take advantage of the amenities and a lot more.
