  1. I would pay full price in cash, I don't borrow money at this point in my live. OR NO BANK would loan me money @70:)
  2. The way i interpreted the tax was if FMV is P6 Million, assessed value is 50% and tax would be 2% of P3 Million or P60,000 per year. You indicate about P10,000. The realestate tax is baffling to me
  3. Will buy in wife's name, married almost 20yrs. I have been trying to understand cost of home ownership in Cebu. I don't know how much to budget for realestate tax in Cebu. If I buy small house (for example) for 3,000,000 Pesos. How much will I really pay in realestate tax? I see formulas for calculating tax, but I don't know if that is accurate in reality.
  4. I am not sure if this is okay to post here, I have been trying to understand cost of home ownership in Cebu. I don't know how much to budget for realestate tax in Cebu. If I buy small house (for example) for 3,000,000 Pesos. How much will I really pay in realestate tax? I see formulas for calculating tax, but I don't know if that is accurate in reality. I will be in Cebu end of May and first project will be to shop for house and understand realestate taxes.
  5. I need clarification on what PRA currently is requiring for "police clearance" I just obtained my police clearance in Florida from my local sheriff, notarized, notary authenticated, sent to Philippine Embassy (TODAY!) in DC for authentication and now am concerned I don't have proper document. (thanks to post by bkkmarlowe) I did send copy to PRA in Cebu, waiting reply regarding acceptability. Anyone with recent experience, I would appreciate the help. Want to be sure I have acceptable clearance. Thanks, Gino
  6. I am in Florida, USA. I am trying to get all documents together to apply SRRV, BEFORE coming to Cebu. I have original certificate of marriage from 1999, PRA says I need the NSO version. What is best way to get NSO certificate of marriage sent to USA? I am coming to Cebu in May. Thanks, Gino
