Lots of people will buy them from you .  Why ? because of the low price .  It is much easier to sell 15   700K houses than one 12 M house .  [ just ask Smokey or me for details ]   Here price is muc

the problem with anyhting you are trying to sell here is financing. I sold a house here and it was only possible because I was willing to finance over 5 years (with lawyer arrangement mortgage, title

For now, I rent and am quite pleased to do so. I've moved a lot of times. Even walked away from my deposits when it made sense to do so.

 

I will probably purchase in the future when I can pay in cash and have some negotiating power. I agree with other posters who believe the quality of construction here is not so great. However, that's not a real problem if I figure in regular maintenance. From all the rentals I've lived in, that maintenance is very frequent and needs to be part of the budget plan.

 

Lot of the locals in my current neighborhood will buy small and then expand the unit. But, homes that have built upwards are scary to me. One moderate quake and I fear the walls will come tumbling down. And homes that have expanded sideways to the property lines are annoyingly close to the neighbors. So I actually prefer buying the smallish starter homes that I can modify to my needs. Not interested in building from scratch as I really have no expertise in that area.

 

I'm not really interested in appreciation as I don't anticipate selling any property in my lifetime. Of course, land will generally appreciate in value over time. But in those places that I prefer to live - outside of the urban center - appreciation will be slow. So I'm more interested in appreciation far down the road for my family.

 28 to 33sqm on a 40 sqm block is very small..my NCR condo is 55sqm and small..i decided when i was house/condo hunting last year that 32sqm was the absolute minimum size that was needed, and that 32sqm with only 1 bedroom would be only marginally comfortable. still 720K is a great price, big picture very affordable and affordability is very important...i basically used a combination of wages, cash, asset sales (shares) and 2 credit cards to pay for my condo.

Yes. 28-33 sqm is VERY tight but I'm think more about resale. If I'm going to spend money on housing I would prefer to be able to resale quickly. Buying bigger means less qualified candidates for purchase. I only plan on keeping 1 or 2 years unless anything changes. I don't care much about the space as I live out of hotels now. I lived in a camper 1/3 the size for 3 months one summer and was never happier. Bottom line is I don't want to through rent money away if I have a opportunity to gain equity.

Well i would think that at 720K there is an excellent chance that given time and the continued growth in the Filipino economy and the Global rebound that you would have an investment that would at least keep pace with inflation, i just think that buying Filipino real estate and having resale (at a profit) as a primary objective is probably not compatible, especially with such a short time frame in mind...lots of other factors to consider such as Fibre internet availability, distance to transport/amenity's and the developer going bust etc.

if rent is p10k per month, that's p120k per year. if I can buy for p700k and sell a year later for more than p600k............ im my mind I have made a profit.

it does not really matter if u can not buy the land. U can lease the land for 25 years and own the house.

 

If u love your wife enough to marry her then i am dam sure u can trust her enough for a 25 grand investment...  all good i say go for it

And even better...700,000 pesos is only $16,000 US.

I have been living in 300 sqfoot appartments and 5,000 sqfoot houses. For a relationship, a smaller space is usually better, you have to be more disciplined and show respect, with kids you need some kind of rec room - but in general I have been happier in smaller spaces.

If your genuinely happy with small and genuinely happy with selling at a near break even price and happy with the other risks...good luck to you.

Looking back i know i had many apprehensions when i bought my 2 million P condo off the plan (big developer) 15 months ago, and then spent 11 months sending 4200 dollars a month to cover the repayment check...but so happy i did now, so happy the plan has all come together and i get to spend 4 weeks over xmas in my condo with my significant other, happy that i have a low cost semi luxury future to look forward to.
