6 Real Estate Investment Opportunities Most Filipinos Miss Out On

Real estate is one of the safest and most profitable investments one can ever make through careful management and smart strategies. Here and abroad, the Philippines is considered a prime location for real estate investment, thanks to the property market boom in the past few years.

On the other hand, savvy investors diversify their portfolio, including real estate, to maximize their long-term earning potential. If that is your goal, then you need to tap into these six real estate opportunities in the Philippines that most Filipinos miss out on.

6 Frequently Asked Questions About Foreclosed Properties

We have conducted two batches already of our Usapang Foreclosed Property Investing featuring our friend and real estate investing mentor Jay Castillo of ForeclosurePhilippines.com but people are craving for more.

That’s why we are offering the 3rd batch of this series to all those who were not able to attend the first two batches.

Before you join and register for the 3rd Usapang Foreclosed Property Investing seminar, here are few of most asked questions to help you out about foreclosed property investing taken from Jay’s website.

1. Are all properties listed by banks foreclosed?


Bank listings usually only include foreclosed properties as they are not really in the real estate business. S

ometimes however, you will also see some bank acquired assets for sale which they got as payment through a dacion en pago or payment in kind, as a result of foreclosure proceedings.

2. Can I ask the bank for the copy of the title?


Yes, just need to ask for a copy and they should give you a photocopy which you can use to check/verify at the registry or deeds by getting a certified true copy.

3. I am just curious what happens to the unsold properties in the auction? Does the bank reschedule them for another auction or can buyers make an offer to the bank at the starting bid price?


For Unionbank, they usually set another auction for the unsold properties about a month later.

For auctions conducted by CBRE, they usually come out with post auction listings where “best offers” are considered, which means interested parties can submit offers below the minimum bid price.

For RCBC, they usually schedule another auction and take off 5% from the minimum bid price(MBP) for unsold properties.

4. Tanong ko lang po kung pwede pang mag habol yung dating may ari yung property pag fully paid na po ng buyer. And pano rin po pag dipa fully paid yung property pwede pa rin po basila mag habol?


If tapos na yung redemption period, wala nang habol yung dating may ari.

If I’m not mistaken with the legal terms, the redemption period is one year after the execution of the foreclosure. Kahit hindi pa fully paid ang new owner, basta nag lapse na yung one year na redemption period, wala na ring habol ang previous owner.

Usually, banks only sell foreclosed properties whose redemption periods have already lapsed. Although they usually inform interested parties if the redemption period has lapsed or not, it would be better to double check, just to be sure.

5. Please expound the clause “as is, where is” for foreclosed properties?


“as is, where is” generally means the buyer agrees to purchase the property at its present physical condition including but not limited to any problems or legal issues the property maybe involved in.

Best practice is for the buyer to thoroughly inspect the property and check for any lis pendens, annotations, etc., on the TCT plus trace-back plus any arrears on taxes, dues, etc. that maybe for the account of the buyer.

It would be highly recommended to check the auction guidelines as well on how the term “as is, where is” is defined by the bank conducting the auction.

6. What are the typical requirements to join an auction as a bidder?


Aside from the show money or manager’s check, the winning bidder must submit all requirements as stated in the conditions of sale.
