Got questions?

If you have questions, Please see the guidelines below that I have quoted from the catalogue. Most of the answers to frequently asked questions can be found here:

Interested in any of our properties?

1. Visit your chosen property any day of the week, any time of the day. Most of our properties have caretakers who can assist you during your visit (except for condos and vacant subdivision lots which are under the watch of the respective condo/subdivision homeowners association). For condos, you have to coordinate with us on where to get the keys.

Just a word of advice … Since our properties sell fast, we advise you to CALL US FIRST before your scheduled visit just to check the important details of the property and if it is STILL AVAILABLE. You can also verffy from us on the best way to get to the property.

2. If you like the property, submit to us an Offer to Purchase (found in one of the pages of this catalogue)

  • All offers must be submitted in the official Offer to Purchase Form, duly filled out and signed. The said form may be submitted directly or sent through fax or email with attached scanned copy of the signed Offer to Purchase form (front and back) to the CUSTOMER CARE DESK of Property Sales and Leases.
  • When the form is faxed or sent via email, the date and time stamped on the email or fax shall be considered the official time and date of the receipt.

3. FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED POLICY. First-come, First-served is our service policy whereby the offers to purchase are attended to in the order that they are received without other biases and preferences. This policy shall apply only to offers which are equal to or higher than our asking price.

4. You will be informed if your offer has been accepted. A Letter Advice containing the terms and conditions of the sale (with the following information) shall be sent to you:

a. Selling Price

b. Property Address/Description

c. Schedule of payment/s to complete the purchase price

5. After you sign the Letter Advice, which signifies that you agree with the terms and conditions of the sale, you must send us a copy for our file and as our basis to reserve the property for you until you pay the minimum 10% earnest money on or before the date stated therein. If the earnest money is not paid on due date, then the property will be offered to other interested buyers.

*What are the related taxes and fees that go with a real estate transaction?

For the account of the Seller:

  • Capital Gains Tax – 6% of Selling Price (SP) or Zonal Value (ZV) or Fair Market Value (FMV) whichever is higher
  • Business Tax – if applicable

For the account of the Buyer:

  • Documentary Stamp Tax – 1.5% of SP or ZV whichever is higher
  • Transfer Tax – rate depends on location of property (ranging from 0.25% to 0.75% of SP or ZV whichever is higher)
  • Registration Fee – graduated rate based on SP (ex. P5,646 for SP of Php1 Million)
  • Realty Taxes – for the remaining months of the year based on date of full payment

Note*: Government may impose other taxes and fees that are not covered by the above schedule.

  6. I’m interested in the property listed in Metro Manila Q3-2010 particularly the one located in Urduja Village, Novaliches, Caloocan City. However, I find the price too high ( Php 1.610 M ) considering that the building was gutted by a fire. Maybe you are not aware of this.
    God bless and more power to you.

  7. Kamusta po, sobrang laking tulong sakin nitong site na ito at raming kong nalalaman tungkol sa real estate. OFW akong nagtratrabaho sa barko. At naghahanap ng pdeng ipaginvest ng kinikita ko, at real estate ang pinaka nakita kong pinakamaganda at safe. Kaso ang problema ko lng, kng pde ba ako maginvest sa real estate maski nagbabarko ako for 6 months tpos 2 months lng ang bakasyon ko sa pinas.ang naiisip ko, kng pwede, tuwing uuwi ako, bibili ng foreclosed property at gagawing rentahan, para may cashflow na mas mataas kesa nsa bank lng yung pera ko na mababa interest. Posible po ba ito? possible ba pong magayos ng property ng dalawang buwan? o baka po may iba po kayong pwedeng isuggest… tpos gusto ko po sana mag seminar para mas maintindihan ko at mas lumawak kaalaman ko sa real estate, di ba po advance masyado ang seminar para sa balak palang magkaron ng kaalaman sa real estate? Baka may masuggest din po kayo tungkol dito. Maraming salamat po…

  9. Hi Jay, i am interested duon sa 38 doors apartment. How much do i need to get it for installment and for how many years at what interest? What about the ROI and how’s the rental business in the area? What about the location? Flood free? How old is the structure? CGT is for the account of the seller, ibig bang sabihin for the account of the seller up to the selling price or kahit na magkano ang maging basihan for the 6 percent CGT? how much is the current sonal valuation of the property?
    Kindly send your reply to
    Thanks for any information you can give me.

  10. Hi Jay,

    Yes, I was able to download and view it, no problem.

    Bro, I’m not decided yet what day I’m going to the festival. Their site is up already, I just checked the schedule. Ikaw, kelan ka punta? Pwede ako pumunta when you are going so we can chat na din.

    Thanks bro!

    • Thanks for the feedback! I think morning of day 3 would be best because of the following sessions:

      10:30 – 10:45 “How Can You Be Sure That the Title to Your Property is
      Genuine, and Not Fake?”
      Dr. Jaime A. Cura,
      CEO of Creba Land Services & Title Warranty Corporation

      10:45 – 11:00 “How Can You Avail of Housing Loans Without Over-Extending Yourself?”
      Mr.Jaime Fabiana, CEO of Pag-ibig Fund

      11:00 – 11:15 “What Does RESA Require of Real Estate Service Practitioners?”
      Dr. Eduardo G. Ong,
      Chairman of the Professional Regulatory Board of RESA

      • Bro,

        I forgot, I am going to attend John Calub’s 2nd Level Training (Attracting Wealth Seminar) on July 31st. I will share my learning in my blog again.:)

        Let me know if you will change your schedule to go to the RE Festival. Otherwise, I’m sure we’ll meet again soon.

        God bless bro!

  11. Hi Jay!

    Thanks for the listing. I get enthusiastic thinking about the multi-door apartments or buildings as I know this is the big passive income source in real estate.

    By the way, are you attending the Real Estate Festival next week? Kita tayo if you are going.

    Thanks Bro and God bless!

    • Hi Bryan, you’re welcome bro! By the way, if you intend to buy any of the multi-door properties on the list or if you have a buyer, just let me know.

      Thanks for reminding me about the Philippine Real Estate Festival. Yes, I’ll be attending. I was supposed to create a post about it but their website appears to be offline, I guess I’ll just make do with details I gathered from people I know who are participating. See you there bro, just text me which day you are going.

      By the way, were you able to download and open the PDF file in this post successfully?

  12. hi Jay,

    Thanks for posting this but I can not open the link, error is ‘the file is damaged and can not be repaired. can assist to send to my email instead? Thanks again and GOD bless…

    • Hi Elaine, it can either mean you have an outdated PDF reader installed or your download got corrupted. I’ll send a copy through e-mail shortly, in the meantime, may I know what PDF reader and version you are using? Thanks!

  13. Hi Jay,

    I truly appreciate your advocacy towards real estate investing. All your blogs are helpful, especially for newbies like me. I would like to ask regarding this file. I can’t seem to check out the catalogue (it says some ‘files’ are missing and can’t be read). I would just like to ask whether this is available also in Davao? Are there certain requirements needed for me to avail this catalogue?

    Thank you and more power to your business! 🙂
