The growing population in urban and suburban areas in the Philippines has increased demand for housing, as well as pushed up the long term prices of single unit and condominium residential facilities. Increase in property values as a result of demand offers excellent possibilities for secure investment in residential subdivisions and condominium units, depending on area preferences. While the development of single unit residential subdivision tends to move away from urban centers, condominium units are usually built closer to commercial areas and place of work.
Examples of land and property developers are Ayala Land, Bonifacio Land, Empire East, Robinsons Land and Rockwell.
