No credit checking
UnionBank is the only bank I know which has no credit checking. So, for those who are not employed, no need to worry about your ITR or other papers. Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) are welcome too. Even if you have no checking account, you will be allowed to open one with UnionBank (personally) once you purchase a property from them, but only for the sole purpose of issuing checks for the payment of your loan with them.
Low downpayment (only 10% over 6 months)
Unionbank is the only bank I know which allows a buyer to pay only 10% downpayment over six (6) months. After six months or the completion of the 10% downpayment, the buyer may already move in the property. Thus, there is no need to pay downpayment for a pre-selling unit and rental for your current home simultaneously beyond six months. For Unionbank’s Amalfi properties in particular, they devised a special financing scheme which would make it easier for buyers to complete their payments.
Unionbank’s financing scheme
To illustrate, let’s take the example of a ready for occupancy Amalfi house and lot valued at P2,466,288 with a lot area of 92 square meters and a floor area of 64 square meters. The payments are as follows:
- P12,331.44 per month for 5 months
- P184,971.60 on the 6th month
- P12,948.01 for the next 24 months. This is an interest-only loan at an interest rate of 7% per year. Interest-only meaning the payments all go to interest only and none to the principal.
- P22,196.59 for the next 35 months (effectively, the 25th to 59th month of the loan). Henceforth, the amortization payments now go both to the principal and interest, and the interest rate is fixed at 11% per year.
- P133,179.55 on the 60th month of the loan (end of the 5th year of the loan)
- P22,196.59 for the next 35 months (effectively, the 61st to 95th month of the loan).
- P133,179.55 on the 96th month of the loan (end of the 8th year of the loan)
- P22,196.59 for the next 35 months (effectively, the 97th to 131st month of the loan).
- P199,769.33 on the 132nd month of the loan (end of the 11th year of the loan)
- P22,196.59 for the next 35 months (effectively, the 133rd to 167th month of the loan).
- P199,769.33 on the 168th month of the loan (end of the 14th year of the loan)
- P22,196.59 for the next 35 months (effectively, the 169th to 203rd month of the loan).
- P101,345.06 on the 204th month of the loan (end of the 17th year of the loan)
Basically, they tried to lower the regular monthly payments, but there will be balloon payments on the 6th month, and end of the 5th, 8th, 11th, 14th, and 17th years of the loan. If you believe you are capable of paying these amounts and are disciplined enough to save for such payments, you may consider these properties.
Since these properties will be auctioned off, interested bidders only need to bring Php20,000 show money (cash or MC) per property. The bank will shoulder the CWT up to the selling price for the Amalfi house and lots.
If you like the Amalfi properties but would like to have your loan with another bank, please note that Unionbank does not accept only a Letter of Guarantee (LOG). It must be fully paid before it will release the title to the property. Only Sterling Bank, Maybank, and PSBank agree to this arrangement. The good news is, Unionbank will give the buyer thirty (30) days to process his/her loan papers with the other bank, and once Unionbank is paid in full within that period, the purchase will be considered as a cash purchase which shall be entitled to a five percent (5%) discount.
