Grand Midori 8M (ouch!) ang studio, LOI stage na ito.
Kalokohan! They should just build a basement parkade on the hole and put a park on top! Para hindi ako mawalan ng view... ;)

Between, Cirrus, Sync and Parklinks North. Which is best for investment?


Updated price:
Cirrus: 200K
Arcovia 180K
Ortigas east 250K

Not on image is
Sync 180K (mid rise around 21 floors i think)
Allegra / Prisma @142K

all along C5.

It all depends on if you want to live on it, sell it before/after turnover or rent it out. For me Parklinks is not good investment wise. Lahat ng tutubuin mo in the future kinuha na ng developer. Arcovia maybe ok but the payment terms are steep. Cirrrus and Sync are Robinsons communities so hindi high end pero they are asking high end prices (if you get in earlier maybe it is an ok deal).
I knew this as i've been looking one myself. :)

I ended up getting Allegra yung pricing nya is ok pa as they just started last Sept di pa nag increase. They may increase their pricing though after Nov i heard but 1BRs are hard to come by. I got one by lottery and my agent was watching and updating me daily.

The benefit of a good agent :D gets gets, grabe nga ung pricing ng Parklinks kinain na ng developer. DMCI until now ok pa dn naman ang build quality as per reviews

Hi there! First-Time Realestate investor here, i'd really appreciate tips on choosing pre-selling condos for investment as of now.

Locationwise, resell value and other factors na needed for choosing the property.



Am quite leaning on to these areas:

- QC ( TriNoma area )

- Proximity to EDSA/Train



pero if you will be suggesting I am open to your tips mga master. :)



Received some computations for:

- Allegra Place

- Urban Deca Homes Ortigas

If you have your takes on these places, thanks in advance!


Hi! I work in the industry. And I’d like to share some thoughts with you, the same exact thoughts I share with my clients.

1.) Define what your idea of the word “INVESTMENT” is. This word has been widely thrown around. To make it easier, I break it down with my clients in 3 basic ideas.
-BUY and RESALE: There has been an influx of Resale properties in the method of having the balance assumed directly by the buyer. This is possible through some developers where during the pre-selling stage (construction period), early buyers can flip the property to those willing to assume the balance directly from the developer. The title of the property is not created yet, and a modification of the account via changes in names/ownership. This is by far the quickest way to change ownership of the property. Best properties to invest to make the most returns through this way are the developing areas across the Philippines. Biggest factor to consider are availability of surrounding offices, and on going infrastructure development.

-BUY and RENT: As the name states, buy and rent a property for a passive monthly income. To know if a property is going to be a sustainable source of income, assuming the balance is on bank loan, the annual income percentage of the property should be more than the interest rates of the banks on your loan amount. You may also factor in the annual increase in rental rate for the property. The hottest factors that affect rental rates right now are the POGO market. As for property management, careful selection process of the agent or broker you will hire is the key.

-BUY, HOLD, and SELL: This is the traditional way to invest in properties. You can make a pasive income while renting the property for 5 to 10 years, and flipping it to a buyer after to generate more profit. You make more money this way. But this would entail you holding the property for a very long time. Any location is ideal for this. But you also have to factor in on how the property purchase is going to be. As the holding process of this investment method has to have a sustainable rental income.

2.) With this in mind, you have to have a clear goal when you invest in a property. From there you can start your selection process on which area you can invest.

3.) Sticking with your plan and finances. Although investing in a property can be flexible, investing in one has its own timeframe in order to maximize your earning potential. After all, you invest to make your money grow.

As they say in the industry, investing is buying a day where you don’t have to work. Good luck!

Thank you for this sir! From classifications, I would say I am looking for more of a Buy, Hold and Sell property, where I'd be renting it out for some time then will be flipping the unit after.

With that in mind, given the number of projects on the rise, which ones would you say would be a better match for my purpose?

HOLD IT.. Masyado na mataas presyuhan condo ngaun.. Nasa Fear of Missing Out (FOMO) stage na ang bumibili ng condo ngaun...Wait for correction.. then scoop.. Everything bubble will pop by end of 2021 as forecasted by the experts.

I think Vion Tower of Megaworld in Makati is also a good investment. The price is cheaper compared to other ongoing projects along Chino Roces. For rental, I am satisfied with my rental income in San Lorenzo Place because of its location. :cheers:

Anyway.. I think I'm already into the game.. Though I might be a small timer, I have 2 rental condos in Metro Manila (Not high end) and 1 preselling in the province.

I am not advising not to buy condo but just hold it for now.. Kung di lang sa Chinese,(from leechu something property consultancy) 2016 pa nagcollapse na condo prices. Our president is pro Chinese investments pero di natin alam kung after the president's term eh pro Chinese pa din susunod na presidente. eh kung anti-chinese manalo.. imagine what will happen?

Our bank is offering very low interest for very long time now, ibig sabihin maraming may loans sa banks, and mas malaking upside ng pagtaas ng interest kesa pagbaba.. Konteng taas lang ng interest rate nyan asahan natin maraming foreclosures.

I'm not a speculator, I try not to base my investments biased to gains, not too fearful nor greedy.

Question about Condo Buying process..

Question for experienced condo buyer.

I am buying a condo from Avida. The payment terms are 10% spot, 10% spread through 24 months, and then 80% after.

In the CTS, they said they will need bank loan guarantee after the 24th payment is made (30 days after 24th installment.) However, the unit is scheduled to be delivered 6 months after the 24th payment.

Does this mean the loan will only start when the unit is turned-over? Can they legally ask for payment without delivering the unit yet? My understanding is that they can't ask for payment (and hence, the loan from the bank) if the turnover process has not happened (because there are no titles etc..).

Thanks!

After DP, you need to give lumpsum payment. Either full cash or loan guarantee, which is usually 6mos prior nagppa approve ka na dapat. Yes ibobook mo na yang loan mo once nka kuha ka loan guarantee, AFAIK.

IF that project got delayed, you'll be paying the amort kahit hnd pa turned over yung unit. Brasuhin mo yung developer once this happens. Sobrang lugi ka talaga sa ganitong scenario.

Hope this helps.

Ang nabasa ko naman is you are only liable for the remaining 80% once the unit is ready to be occupied? That's not fair right? Even for the bank, why would the bank hand over money to something that's not even finished?
