A Commentary on Land Prices in High-End Villages


Just my two cents: General increase in land prices in prestigious villages mainly due to:

  • Prices shown in the graph are “highs”, average prices should be 10% to 15% lower.
  • Lots in these Makati villages are very rare. The low supply allows sellers demand exorbitant prices for their properties in these villages.
  • In the past 6/7 years, more people are entering the “ultra high net worth individual” space which in turn is attributed to bustling businesses/booming Philippine economy (it’s more common to see Ferraris and Lambos in recent years).
  • These are the people buying at those prices.
  • Optimism on Philippine economy have influenced the current ultra high net worth individuals to land bank.
  • What would be interesting to see is data prior to 2010. My guess is, the uptrend shown in the graph is also a recovery of prices from the dip in prices from the Global Financial Crisis back in 2006/2007.
  • Dip in prices in Green Meadows is due to the earthquake scare. Green Meadows is found near the fault line.
  • Increase in prices in Ayala Alabang due to the completion of Stage 2 (exit to Alabang’s South Station) back in April 2011.
