How it Works
"Real estate investing, even on a very small scale, remains a tried and true means of building an individual's cash flow and wealth."
By investing smartly in certain condominium projects in the Philippines investors are able to generate 80% to 85% annualized Internal rate of return (IRR) . It's an opportunity created by the Philippines' booming economy, and one that uses a unique, staggered downpayment model.
Several property developers in the Philippines offer flexible payment schemes in their condominium project. A staggered down payment means a buyer or investor pays a small amount every month usually about 0.5% (half a percent) into owning a condominium project for 3-4 years.
The developer uses money from several such buyer/investors to fund part of the construction. Typical price appreciation for a condo in the Philippines over the past several years has been roughly 7%-8% annually, and that is a very conservative estimate. This growth is expected to continue. As development nears completion, there would roughly be a 35%-40% overall price increase in their property.
At this time end users-buyers pay the remaining balance which is usually 70%-80%, with cash or bank financing; investors on the other hand flips their unit in the condo, before they have to pay this 70%-80% balance creating an annualized Internal Rate of Return (IRR) of 80% to 85% percent.
This is because, while the initial investment is a small amount paid in equal monthly installment payments, the appreciation is at the face value of the condo, and not on the actual amount invested, hence the IRR is incredible.
- An investor called John invests about $300 a month into owning an under-construction high-rise condominium unit with a face value of $70,000.
- The developer uses these monthly payments from John and other buyer-investors to fund construction that requires about 4 years.
- John decides to flip the property after 2 years; after investing in a staggered way a total of $7,200 ($300 X 24 months).
- Meanwhile, the unit has appreciated about 8% annually. That means its current market value is about $81,600.
- After costs and expenses, such as brokerage fees and transfer cost his net profit is still roughly around $7,000.
- That's a whopping 85% Annualized IRR on his actual monthly part payments.
The pre-selling model is a growing trend in the booming real estate industry in the Philippines, and a number of investors, local and foreign buyers, are starting to realize how it can create them massive wealth.
