Condo For Resale At The Sapphire Bloc
The Sapphire Bloc - Multi-Awarded High Rise Residential Development Project in Ortigas Center
Travelling down the 23+ km stretch of EDSA, the longest and most congested highway in Metro Manila, one will inevitably pass through six of the seventeen local government units of Metro Manila. This includes Caloocan, Quezon City, San Juan, Mandaluyong, Makati and Pasay, which will bring you through the major financial districts of Makati, Ortigas Center and Araneta Center. EDSA is part of Circumferential Road 4 (C-4), a network of roads and bridges that acts as the fourth thoroughfare or thruway for the City of Manila. So important is this beltway that areas around it are marked with great economic and industrial growth, as seen in the fact that all but 2 industrial centers in the Metropolis are directly accessible from the thoroughfare.
Last year, property developers sold 38,800 residential condominium units in Metro Manila, about 25 percent higher than the volume sold in 2015. The volume of new residential launches, however, eased by 12 percent last year to 23,000. Another 22, 800 units is expected to be delivered this year. This represents a rebound in the condo market after four straight years of decline, mainly due to favourable interest rates that encouraged buyers to acquire condominium units. A massive supply in residential property is projected for the next four years. Investors who purchase condominiums for rental purposes will have to find developments that stand out from the crowd, to ensure their units don’t remain vacant and their rental income remains firm.
