Yields in Manila remain good, but somewhat lower than during the past few years (when they were excellent). This does not mean that foreign investors should necessarily rush to invest in Manila, because transaction taxes (known as ‘capital gains taxes, but not actually such), and (if observed) official income tax rates applicable to non-resident investors, are high.
Buying prices for condominiums are at around US$2,000 to US$2,500, though of course it is easily possible to pay more. Unusually, yields are not highest on the very smallest units, which suggests that smaller condominiums are oversupplied. The highest-yielding units are 70 square metre units (which have gross rental yields of nearly 10%). Yields are surprisingly good on very large condominiums (250 square metres), at around 9%, and this may be an optimal size for investment.

The Philippine market actually has levels of diferent markets.In the condo market, the hot items are the flat condo units selling at 1.3 to 1.8M no evat taxes cause its below the 2.5 range. you go above 2.5 and you will have to pay 12% more. SM development is leading in this segment. The condos are well located and in the city proper. The bi level units are a hit too. 1.5 to 2.4M unfinish units. meaning you will finish the intrior of the condo. These project are all within the city limits making it easy for you to comute arounfd the city in a few minutes or so.
