How to purchase a property

We are duly accredited real estate brokers of Buena Mano Property Sales and Leases and the following is a step-by-step process of buying a foreclosed property through us:

Step 1. Confirm if chosen property is still available by calling the designated person-in-charge

The telephone number of the designated person-in-charge is in the catalog. When calling, you can also verify also if the chosen property has caretakers, etc. Green tag properties have caretakers (except condos and vacant subdivision lots). Yellow tag properties might still be occupied (call to confirm). Red tag properties are undergoing litigation and are most probably not available for inspection.

Reminders: Please call designated person-in-charge on the catalog during office hours, Mondays to Fridays only.

Step 2. Visit and inspect your chosen property.

Our suggestion is to inspect during day time as electricity is usually disconnected for foreclosed properties. It is also easier to locate properties during day time.

Step 3. Download the Offer To Purchase (OTP) Form

If you want to proceed with purchasing the property, download the Offer To Purchase Form below.

Step 4. Fill-out the OTP form with required information

Kindly fill-out the Offer To Purchase Form as completely and as accurately as possible.

Step 5. Affix your signature on both pages of the OTP form

Ensure you sign both pages of the OTP form.

Step 6. Submit scanned copy of OTP form through email to the following

Submission is quick and easy because you can submit a scanned copy by email:

  • sales(at)foreclosurephilippines.com

Step 7. Wait for a confirmation that your OTP form has been received

We will confirm receipt and validity of your offer through e-mail.

Additional info

Here are additional info when it comes to the purchase process:

  1. If you are the first in line (or your offer is currently the one being processed), you will have to submit a Buyer Information Sheet with two valid government-issued ID’s (if you are married, submit two valid ID’s of your spouse, if any, as well).
  2. If your offer is approved, you will have to pay 10% earnest money within 5 to 10 calendar days from receipt of notice of approval.
  3. You can purchase through bank financing and we will assist you in securing a home loan with the best possible interest rates. Download a copy of the Loan Application Form and send back a scanned copy.
  4. If the approved loan amount is lower than 90% of the selling price, and buyer paid only 10% earnest money, you will have to pay the difference upfront.
  5. Payment of documentary stamps tax or DST, transfer fees, registration fees taxes and other applicable fees fees are for the account of the buyer. Note: As your real estate broker, we do the all the legwork for all of these for you at no cost whatsoever.

Payment terms

Properties can be purchased with the following payment modes:

  • Cash
  • Bank financing (through a housing loan)
    • Through BPI, BPI Family Savings Bank or any major domestic bank
    • Terms are subject to separate credit approval by the lending bank

What are Green Tag properties?

Green Tag properties are real estate properties already cleared with Titles and Tax Declarations duly consolidated / Transferred under the name of the bank which foreclosed the property/ies with its authorized caretakers, particularly those with improvements and can be visited / inspected anytime.

What are Yellow Tag properties?

Yellow lag properties are real estate properties with any of the following “special concerns”: Titles and/or Tax Declarations are still in process of transfer to the bank which foreclosed the property/ies; or Titles are already under the name of the bank but the properties are still occupied by the former owners, tenants or illegal occupants; or there are property documents that still need to be updated.

What are Red Tag properties?

Red Tag properties are real estate properties specifically with pending court cases (under litigation) filed by the previous owners against the bank. Titles of these properties are with annotation/s adverse claims or lis pendens. Interested party is directed to verify status of the case/s from the court/s.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) and answers

1. Can I make an offer below the asking price?

Yes you may, but the First Come, First Served policy of the bank will not apply to your offer. In other words, other offers that are equal to or higher than the asking price will be attended to first, even if you submitted your offer earlier.


2. Will a cash offer get a better chance of being approved?

Regardless of whether an offer is for cash or bank financing, the First Come, First Served policy will be observed and offers are attended to in the order they are received without biases and preferences.


“First come, first served is the service policy of the bank whereby the offers to purchase are attended to in the order they are received without biases and preferences. This policy shall apply only to offers which are equal to or higher than the bank’s asking price.”

4. Is a reservation fee required when submitting an offer?

No, prospective buyers are not required to pay any reservation fee when submitting an offer to purchase. A buyer will only be advised to pay 10%  earnest money once his offer is approved.

5. When is the earnest money due?

The 10% earnest money is usually due within ten (10) calendar days upon the buyer’s receipt of a letter advice from Buena Mano Property Sales and Leases.

The buyer will also be advised through the letter when the balance of the downpayment should be paid, terms and conditions, and other fees. The 10% earnest money will form part of the downpayment.

6. What is the minimum down payment?

The minimum downpayment would depend on the loanable amount that will be approved by the lending bank that will provide the housing loan. It would be equal to the selling price less the approved loan amount.

For example, if the approved loan amount is equal to 80% of the total purchase price, then the minimum down payment shall be the remaining 20%. The minimum downpayment is inclusive of the 10% earnest money, which means if one has already paid the 10% earnest money, only an additional 10% is needed to complete the 20% downpayment.

7. What are the housing loan interest rates?

If you choose to finance the purchase with a housing loan from BPI or BPI Family Savings Bank, it will be through a mortgage contract, and the prevailing interest rates at the time of loan availment will apply.

For your reference, please see below indicative housing loan rates:

Tenor (Housing Loan)Interest Rates
1-2 years6.00%
3 years6.25%
4-5 years6.88%
7-10 years8.50%
Over 15 years11.55%

Important: The above home loan rates are only indicative rates. To get the prevailing interest rates, you may visit the link above or contact us. We can assist you in securing a bank loan.

8. How long does it take to get loan approval?

The speed of the loan approval depends on many factors like the submission of all required documents. I provide free housing loan application assistance to property buyers as I am also accredited with their housing loans group.

    Hi Jay, i would like to thank you for responding to my email months ago. Well now i am really wondering even confused, why banks still sell their foreclosed properties(RED TAGGED) as with BPI, when you yourself even advise us, potential buyers to stay away from these kind of properties. Because until now i still am keen to buy this RED TAGGED foreclosed lot from BPI (BAC-054). I know from the bank that they want to sell this property in CASH. but the problem is what happens with the case between BPI and the previous owner. Is still there a possibility, that even when the property is already under the name of PRUDENTIAL, now managed by BPI, that they(BPI) would still lose the case against the prev owner, and then as the one who bought the property in from BPI, would end up on the losing end and lose the property.

    • http://www.foreclosurephilippines.com Jay Castillo

      Hi Bernard, you’re welcome. Sorry if my reply made you even more confused, but let me try to add more info about Red Tag properties here.

      As to why banks even try to sell them if they are with pending court cases, I heard they are required by the Banko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) to do so and they can get sanctioned if they don’t.

      As to the risk involved with losing all your money, especially if you have to pay in cash, the good thing with BPI is they will only allow the purchase if a compromise agreement is reached between the previous owner and the new buyer, which virtually eliminates the risk (because the previous owner is willing to drop the case based on the terms and conditions in the compromise agreement). However, this is very complicated, and requires a very good lawyer to ensure the agreement is rock solid.

    Good morning, Jay.
    I am interested to know more details about properties SFO-022 and SFO-025, which are both included in Luzon catalogue.

    For SFO-022, it mentions that the (6) lots are within Lot 29-G, does it mean that these lots are next to each other; would this properties be ideal for a piggery business, I notice there are poultry farms around it.

    • http://tayomilyonaryo.sulit.com.ph Roel Vergel


      The properties are tag as yellow because we cannot pinpoint the location of the properties in the absence of concrete monuments. Per appraisal reports, these are riceland although these are residential lot in their respective tax declarations.
