Featured: (SOLD) Las Pinas foreclosed properties for public auction on February 4, 2012

My wife and I inspected a bunch of foreclosed properties in Las Pinas City included in an auction on February 4, 2012 and we are featuring the pictures and other details we have gathered through this post. We only focused on the properties that are unoccupied and have no legal impediments, based on the information we got from the bank listing.

Only 4 out of the 13 properties located in the Las Pinas area are unoccupied and we inspected 3 of them. Inspecting them was quite easy because they were relatively close to each other and we had a “friendship sticker” on our car which allowed us to pass through certain subdivisions within Las Pinas.

We were done with our ocular inspection in about 2 and 1/2 hours, which included travel time, and about forty five minutes of this was spent having lunch… not bad right?

This is one advantage of focusing on a specific area or niche as mentioned in my article 4 steps to quickly analyze and shortlist foreclosed properties*.

*I really need to update this article because I wrote it prior to Ondoy, and I was still based in Marikina back then.

Please keep in mind that it is not a good idea to inspect ALL of the properties that you find on listings of foreclosed properties, it would be wiser to inspect only those that you have shortlisted. It just so happened that we  (my wife and I) are still familiarizing ourselves with the territory, and we simply want to get exposed and learn as much as we can about  the properties here in Las Pinas.

Our goal is to build our expertise in this niche and reach a certain level wherein we would start recognizing good deals faster.

Anyway, here are the pictures of the properties we inspected along with other details we have found so far.

1. (SOLD) No. 18 B10 L19 Anthem St.,Sta. Cecilia Village, Talon 2, Las Pinas City

View Larger Map

We noted that this house was quite old and needs a lot of repairs, especially since most of its wooden structure has termites (please refer to pictures). The main house is a 3BR/2TB and has a garage. (Don’t know what 3BR and 2TB means? Checkout this article about real estate acronyms).

There is a small house at the back which is a 2BR/1TB. The caretaker said this is where they stay and it was probably rented out before.




2. (SOLD) B4 L7 Camella Fronterra Subdivision, BF Resort Village, Talon 2, Las Pinas City

View Larger Map

Before we visited this property, I thought to myself that this was probably too expensive because it had such a small lot area and floor area for the price. When we saw the inside of Camella Fronterra however, I no longer felt visiting this property was a waste of time because the place looked nice, safe, and secure.

The property itself is a single-attached unit, and reminded me of the houses in Maia Alta, Antipolo City. It is a 3BR/2TB house with 1PS, although the bedrooms would be quite small, obviously! We were not able to see the inside of 2 of the 3 bedrooms because the doors were locked and there was no caretaker who can unlock them for us.

Yes, the house had no caretaker and it was not locked at all (Maybe there was no need for a caretaker because the property is inside a gated subdivision? ). The property had a big opening for what I believe would be a french door, but it seems this was never installed, and the house was not finished.

Of the three houses we visited, this appeared to be the one that needed less repairs even if it was not completed, in my opinion. Anyway, just look at the pictures below and you be the judge.



3. (SOLD) No. 29 Francel St., Pilar Executive Vill., Almanza Uno, Las Pinas City

View Larger Map

This one was the cheapest of all the properties we inspected based on the minimum bid price, but it also needs a lot of repairs. It is also the one nearest the Alabang area. It is a 2BR/1TB house with garage. It is very near SM SouthMall, and DMCI’s Ohana Place condos.

The caretaker told us that this area got flooded during Ondoy and it was about chest-deep. We noticed what appeared to be very faint floodlines on the perimeter walls of the subdivision which can be seen at the extreme left of the panoramic picture below.

It has an unfinished concrete structure at the back of the house.




  • Property inspection is just one part of due diligence and other factors such as legal and financial aspects must also be considered.
  • To get an estimate of the repair cost for a property, a thorough property inspection should be conducted with a competent contractor, who can then submit their repair estimates afterwards.
  • The purpose of this article is to feature the information we have gathered above. Our standard disclaimer applies, as always.
  • Interested parties are advised to do their own due diligence as these foreclosed properties are for sale on an “as is where is” basis.

As mentioned in the beginning of this post, the foreclosed properties above are included in the auction on February 4, 2012. If you are interested in any of these properties, I would be more than willing to assist you as I am an accredited real estate broker of the selling bank. Just let me know through the comments section below.


To our success and financial freedom!

  3. Hi Mr. Jay. Do you have an updated lists of foreclosed house & lot in Paranaque, Las Pinas, Makati, Taguig & Mandaluyong Php 2.5M and below?

    • Hi Wilson, I will be coming up with another featured listing of Las Pinas properties soon (I suggest you subscribe to get notified through email) and I will include one that fits your budget. Although Bank’s rarely accept bank financing through Pag-IBIG, RCBC Savings Bank accepts this but you need to go for in-house financing first while your loan with Pag-IBIG is being processed. Thanks for the comment.

    • Hi Maredith, yes, referrals are welcome. Thank you for commenting here as my mailbox is always full, I’ll look for your e-mail in my mailbox. Thanks!

  14. Hi Jay, we are interested for the property no. 257 at Italia 500. is this still available? My worry is that it has an asterisk mark which may pose a problem later on. How can i mitigate this risk, since it is an “as is where is basis”. Would you happen to know specificaly the asterisk mark meant for this foreclosed property. 

    • Hi Sam, yes, all of these three properties are still available. No one made a bid for any of them last Saturday. Interested?
