Price Increase July 27 ’08

Leave a comment


For those who regularly visit my site for investment tips, Ayala Land news, etc. Here’s another inside-scoop you might want to know (or perhaps what you might just need to finally decide).

We will be having a series of price increases for the following projects:

  • Serendra – 3% increase by July 28 2008 (that’s tomorrow!)
  • Ayala Greenfield Estates – 3% by August 15 2008
  • Abrio – 2% price increase by August 1, 2008
  • Ayala Westgrove Heights – 4% increase by August 15, 2008
  • Sonera- 5% increase by August 1, 2008

It’s very simple, make a reservation before the scheduled increase and you keep the old price – no catch on this one =)

So if you are really thinking of getting an Ayala property anyway, this might be the best time.

For questions, feel free to ask.

Ayala Land bonds get highest rating

By Elaine Ruzul S. Ramos

Philippine Rating Services Corp. gave the P4-billion bond issue of Ayala Land Inc. the highest rating possible of PRS Aaa. The rating is “given to debt obligations with the smallest degree of investment risk.”

The ratings agency noted that Ayala Land had a “remarkable track record of consistent profitability” despite the peaks and valleys of the real estate industry cycle.

Despite the “prevailing issues and looming uncertainties,” PhilRatings affirmed the company’s plans for sustained growth through its residential developments, shopping centers and corporate business line.

Ayala Land earmarked P24.3 billion in capital expenditures this year, 42 percent of which are for residential developments, 30 percent for corporate business lines, 14 percent for shopping centers and the rest for other business lines.

Jaime Ysmael, Ayala Land’s senior vice president and chief finance officer, said one of the company’s most significant projects continues to be the development of the first phase of Nuvali, a large-scale, fully integrated regional development in Canlubang.

Serendra Price Increase! July 7, 2008

Leave a comment

Dear All,

As you know, the prices of materials have been continuously escalating. Other developers have started imposing 10-20% price increases. For the SERENDRA East Tower, there will be a minimal 3% price increase effective July 28, 2008 (Monday).  

The way I see this is that its an investment opportunity for a lot of people out there. How? First, make a reservation before the scheduled price increase and automatically you LOCK IN the old price – that means that just after 3 weeks, the market value of the unit you bought has increased by 3%, to think you haven’t even put in the 10% downpayment yet! Second, by locking-in the old price, you save yourself of whatever price increases there will be if construction costs starts to shoot up! If there was a perfect time to get a Serendra unit, I would have to say that it is definitely now.

Anyway, we thank you for your continued support and we look forward to serving you.

Ayala Westgrove Lot Pick

Leave a comment

Ayala Westgrove Heights Update

July 3, 2008

Re-opened Phase 6 lots

Phase 6 Block 8 Lot 26; 443sqm

Phase 6 Block 8 Lot 27; 564sqm

P6 B8 L26 and 27 both lots have good elevation and are relatively flat. Very good for those who are looking for small cuts. Phase 6 has been turned over already, so if you are looking for a place to build a home, you can immediately start construction (once fully paid).

Couple this with AWH payment scheme 15% down, 85% spread for 2 years at 0% interest.

Call me ASAP if you want to know more details.

Serendra Update – July 1, 2008

Leave a comment

Just a few days ago, we had a briefing with the Serendra guys. It’s the usual “project update” to make sure we give the right info to Ayala clients since we’re the frontliners.

For this to be interesting, I’ll be presenting the info just exactly the same way I took the notes down. =) This way you get to feel or imagine the exact info I have to digest. So don’t be surprised if there’s a lot of technical info, or if the ideas don’t necessarily have any flow. Like I said, “Note-taking style”. At any rate, you can contact me if you want to clarify something. My lines are always open.

Enjoy. Hope you don’t get lost.

Your Ayala Land classmate,
