Condotel Investments In The Philipines

Condotel Investments In The Philipines

PSBank’s Home Rate Protect program offers buyers the option to loan up to 70% of the total contract price of their unit which they can pay for a maximum loan period of 25 years with a fixed interest rate currently at 11.5% per annum.

Beth Collingz, PLC Global Pinoy International Marketing Director and Lead Marketing Partners for PCPI’s Lancaster Brand of Condotels in the Philippines said the fixed rate of interest applied for the full 25 year mortgage protects borrowers from interest rate fluctuations and seals in the monthly installments for the term of the loan.

Open to all Filipinos and those married to Foreign Nationals who are at least 21 years old [but not more than 65 years upon maturity of loan] wherein unit buyers should have also paid at least 30% of the condo’s net contract price to be eligible for the loan – the program applies to Lancaster’s residential units only.

This development by PSBank follows the recent approval of Banco De Oro (BDO) a commercial Bank in Metro Manila, for a buyer’s financing or mortgage plan for Lancaster Suites Tower I Manila Condotel units.

“The new financing scheme, a first providing Philippine Mortgages to Foreign Nationals residing overseas for the purchase of Condotel units in the Philippines, is now available to unit owners (Filipinos, Filipino-Americans and Foreign Nationals alike) whom are looking to purchase a Condo Hotel Suite or refinance their investments through BDO’s Home Loan” Collingz said.

Existing unit owners who are availing of Pacific Concord Properties in-house financing have the option to pay off their units in 144 months. With BDO’s Home Loan, unit owners can now opt to pay off the balance for up to 15 years [180 months] at only 11.5% per annum. By converting the existing in-house loan to BDO’s Home Loan, buyers will have more flexibility in paying off their loans at a much lower interest rate. What’s more, with BDO’s Home Loan, buyers can loan the full amount equivalent to 70% of the current value of their units regardless if they have already paid more than 30% of the units’ TCP. After paying the balance of the unit price to PCPI, the net amount will then be released directly to them. Buyers can take advantage of this offer to free up some cash as well as to finance the fit-out of their units in the condotel pool or their business set up requirements in their commercial units.

“Many of my previous clients whom have purchased units in Lancaster Suites Tower I are now set to cash in on their equity by availing of the new financing options to be able to reinvest in new units at Lancaster Atrium which is currently on preconstruction selling” said Collingz.

Collingz continued, “Not only will buyers of units in Tower I have rental income from their units from the middle part of 2007 that will partially offset mortgage payments, they can now free up their equity and take advantage of the current low prices for Condotel Suites in the new Lancaster Atrium and stand to make another 70-80% in property appreciation by the time the building is fully completed from 2010′

PSBank Accredits Lancaster Suites Tower I Condotel Investments in the Philippines

Pacific Concord Properties, Inc. is offering the perfect mix of both the right opportunity and the right timing. In recognizing the financial and emotional value of their investment, PCPI designed a program for all unit owners of Lancaster Suites and Lancaster Cebu that will help them maintain and generate income from their investment.

More popularly known as the Condotel Advantage, this program will enable unit owners to gain access to PCPI’s experienced world-class property managers who will make sure of the complete and hotel-quality maintenance of the units enrolled in the condotel pool.

As part of the condotel pool, unit owners can relax knowing that their properties will be managed like hotel rooms. Finding tenants will not be a concern also as the property managers will be tasked in finding tenants for them to make sure that their units will earn a competitive rental income.

By joining the condotel pool, unit owners will get to enjoy total hassle-free property management while earning rental income whether they are staying in the Philippines or residing in another country anywhere in the world

Planning In Cebu Philipines

Posted on 10 May 2012 by yizhan

Planning In Cebu Philipines

Beth Collingz, PLC International Marketing Director, lead marketing partners for Lancaster Brand of Condotels in the Philippines, said the company’s latest sale of condotel units drew not only overseas Filipinos but significant numbers of international buyers from Europe and Australia. Units in Lancaster Suites Manila are sold out whilst their latest project, Lancaster The Atrium at Shaw Boulevard, Metro Manila is 75% booked and range from studios to three-bedroom penthouse suites with full kitchens. We now have demand from our clients for new, luxury high end condotel development in Cebu Collingz said.

Owners of Lancaster condotel units can arrange to stay in their units and they share 60% of any rental income. The Lancaster Atrium together with the soon completed and upcoming operations of Lancaster Suites Manila, one of the hottest real estate investments in the Philippines, will be the hub for Lancaster condotels in the Philippines.

The 42-story Lancaster Suites Manila, scheduled for operations this year, features studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom condotel units, as well as penthouse suites. The units will be available for daily, weekly or monthly rental, Collingz said.

Collingz said a major condo hotel project is being considered by the Company with several UK Investment Trusts and local investors in Cebu, Philippines. “We’ve got so many clients requesting Luxury Condotel Suites in Cebu willing to advance payments for high end luxury condotels,” she said. “It’s a whole new era of Overseas Investments coming up — it’s not something that we’ve typically seen in the past and no one in the Philippines fully caters to this high end luxury lifestyle market. (These Investors) are all characteristically looking for a five star hotel resort, with all the features of a hotel that can be used for vacations and then rent out the units when not in use

The new and exciting luxury five-star properties or high end developments planned in Cebu Philippines, that will be sold by invitation only and will start in the $ 150,000 to $ 200,000 range for Deluxe 500sqft Studios, can go all the way up to $ 600,000 for 2 bedroom Penthouse suites and $ 800,000 for a Grand Penthouse. Of course, International gateways from Europe, South East Asian and the United States to Cebu-Mactan International Airport is within 15 minutes and, all units have sea views, beach toys and other lifestyle amenities such as spa and fine dining restaurants and will come fully fitted, furnished and finished to the highest European standards with fully fitted kitchens, fitted bedroom suites and every unit will be sold including all appliances, split type central unit air-conditioning, plasma TVs’ and state of the art communication and condotel management systems.

Units will be significantly larger in size than a typical hotel room yet still a much better value for money investment option than paying $ 800,000 for a studio suite in maybe Dubai or Panama or a cool million dollars for a condo in Chicago.

The planned high end Lancaster Mactan Resort Condotels will be near the new Cebu Convention Center and Cebu International Airport which is key, to good year-round occupancy numbers, she said. The square footage can range from 700 square feet to 1,800 square feet for one and two bedroom suites or more than 3,000 square feet split level penthouse suite.

Why can’t we build, and sell, a – Trump or Ritz Carlton Quality Condotel – in the Philippines and get the same buyers into the Philippines that flock to invest in lifestyle developments around the world enthuses Collingz
