Who Do 10,000 Homebuyers Think Are the Country’s Best Property Industry Players?

Online real estate platform Lamudi is set to announce special awards honoring the best housing developers and projects in a forum Wednesday, November 29, 2017, at the Marquis Events Place in Bonifacio Global City.

The awards are based on a nationwide survey Lamudi conducted starting March this year, which gathered data from over 10,000 home buying and home seeking respondents across the Philippines.  These respondents were asked to name the country’s best real estate developers in both the condominium and housing sectors, as well as what the best individual projects were in both categories. Respondents were also asked questions related to design, architecture, customer service and value for money. 


These results were then gathered into a report called The Outlook by Lamudi, which will coincide with an awarding ceremony that will happen in the whole-day forum. Lamudi will be handing out 23 awards recognizing the best condominiums and housing projects and developers in Metro Manila and Cebu.



“We’re very excited about the results of this survey, as it will be the first where actual homebuyers were asked about who they deem are the best players and who provides them the best value,” said Bhavna Suresh Chathambeth, managing director of Lamudi Philippines. “What better validation than that which comes directly from the buyer?”






In a statement released last November 23, Lamudi revealed three nominees for 16 categories based on the responses of the 10,000 property seekers who took the survey. Here are the nominees:
