MANILA, Philippines — For the second year, top Philippine real estate portal Lamudi is once again hosting The Outlook. Slated on November 15 at Makati Shangri-La, the gala that celebrates the esteemed real estate developers and projects that made the biggest impact in the local real estate industry in the past year. The awardees will be decided by a panel of judges and a survey participation of 10,000 property seekers.

Lamudi is leading the shift of property discovery from traditional to digital with technology and data. Through the results of The Outlook, the company aims to help developers understand the needs and wants of Filipino property seekers to better serve them in an increasingly competitive and demanding real estate market.

The selection process

Nominations for The Outlook 2018 officially kicked off May this year and ended in June. Real estate developers nominated their most notable projects under various categories. All nominated projects underwent an initial screening by a reputable panel of judges.

The shortlisted projects were then put to the test via a nationwide survey of 10,000 property seekers. Survey respondents were classified based on their search interests to ensure accuracy and relevance of the answers to each category.

Bhavna Suresh, chief executive officer of Lamudi, explained that this survey process was designed to truly reflect the pulse of the property seekers.

“We feel that as potential buyers, property seekers have done their research on their wants and needs as they narrow down their options. Hence, they deserve the right to weigh in on which properties or developers deserve which recognition,” Suresh said.

The award categories

A total of 18 awards will be given during the gala to winning real estate developers and projects.
