Career and Opportunities in Real Estate Industry

Last year, our country had a bullish economy inspite of the world economic down turn as a whole. This strong economic performance is easily noticed with the continuous real estate development in the metro. More buildings are up to rise, more office and commercial spaces were planned for new developments, more township and communities are set to start.

Thanks to government efforts to fight corruption and attract more investors in the country and the continuous support of OFW's to invest their hard earned money back home. Continuing this trend would create more opportunities not only on the real estate industry but for the economy.

Career and Opportunities

Have you ever wonder how many income opportunities were created in one condominium tower of 30 floors? Well for thirty storey, there could be 800 condo units and construction might last for 3 years. With that, there will be around 400 sellers to benefit the sale of condo if each had 2 unit sales, not to mention the construction workers and others job directly created during construction.


Real estate is not all about the professionals selling properties. There are many projects that are up to rise, many opportunities are also created for back office, consultancy, sub contracts and others.
