PDIC to sell bank acquired properties of closed banks through sealed bidding

I recently came across an invitation to bid from the Philippine Deposit Insurance Corporation (PDIC). This invitation to bid is quite interesting because the properties that are for sale through sealed bidding are actually the Real and Other Properties Acquired (ROPA) of closed banks. I guess this helps confirm my answer to a recent comment by Jun where he had a concern with regard to a property he got through a tax foreclosure auction whose title had an inscription of mortgage with a bank that was already closed. It appears that properties of closed banks really do end up with PDIC.

Up for sale through sealed bidding are properties from the Visayas and Metro Manila areas. Submission of sealed bids for Visayas properties will be on December 8, 2009, 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. For Metro Manila and other areas, the submission of sealed bids will be December 15, 2009, 10:00 am – 2:00 pm.

*Update – I forgot to mention that the list also contained a number of bank repossessed cars.

Please refer to the invitation to bid below for more details.

  1. Hi jay, we had a loan in a rural bank which was foreclosed by pdic, what shall i do now to get back my collateral, do you know if pdic still require the same interest rate like the rural bank used to if I settle the loan with pdic. I also pay insurance for my loan everytime i renew it, is there a possibility that my loan will be forgiven by pdic when they foreclosed the bank since my loan is insured? Hope you can give me some insights. Thank you.

Tama po, kung pwedeng sariling bahay niyo na, kesa mangupahan, bakit hindi, lalu na kung halos pareho lang ang monthly. Sige po, e-mail ko na lang kayo directly… salamat po!

    Anticipating for your quick response on this request. ASAP

  4. Hi Jay,

    Question, yung bahay kase na tinitirhan namen na foreclose na din way back 1996 pa nung last ako pumunta ng PDIC binigay nila 300k spot price, pero wla naman ako ganoon kalaki halaga. for any chance ang PDIC ba tumatangap ba sila ng installment? like if i won the bid as a buyer. or cash basis talaga sila.

  5. hi jay may property ako nahirapan akong ibenta puede ko ba ito isanla benta sa bangko ano ang mangyayari sa akin hahabulin ba nila ibang property ko gaano ba katagal ang ganitong situation

    1. Hi Atiguban, ang balak mo ba ay isasanla mo sa bank tapos parang hindi mo na babayaran? Parang indirectly binenta at sinurrender mo na lang sa bank sa presyo na katumbas ng loan mo kung sakali? Ang mangyayari niyan eh parang voluntary foreclosure at mahihirapan ka na mag loan ulit dahil blacklisted ka na sa mga banko. Tsaka pag nag loan ka, hindi naman 100% ng appraised value ang makukuha mo, usually pinakamalaki na ang 80% so parang nawalan ka pa ng 20%. Suggestion ko, ibenta mo na lang ng mas mura para mas mabilis siyang mabenta. Goodluck.

  6. hi jay thanks for your wonderful effort were one of those who benifited from your wisdom. may i ask a question i won a bid at pdic. but taxes has taken me aback. the property came from a developer to peninsula bank then pdic. year is 1987. how do i compute for this taxes and what proper authorities should i refer. i won the bidding just this november and it is due for payment this coming  january.   

    1. Hi Reygofish! You are most welcome and thank you also for dropping by. To get the computation for the arrears for real property taxes, just go to the office of the city treasurer/city assessor and ask for an updated statement of account. Goodluck and congratulations on your purchase!

  7. please send me a copy or listing and price of your lot or land foreclosed here at,Barangay Sta. Ana,Calatagan,Batangas

  8. Hi jay. let me share this experience with pdic regarding their properties for sale. last april 2009, pdic released thru their website foreclosed properties for negotiated sale. i came across a property in marikina. we checked it at pdic and supposedly the problem with the property is that that they have no possession, meaning the owner still leaves there. however, no case was filed either by the the previous owner or pdic. so, possession was the problem. pdic told us that if we want the property, we will pursue the possession case. my husband, being a lawyer and who happens to work for another bank thinks that although hindi madali, puede naman. so we decided to make an offer. primero, our offer was 25% less of the indicative price. Di sila pumayag. So we made an offer at their set price. Akalain niyo ba na pdic rejected it pa rin kesyo they have to re appraise the property! natural, a lot of things went to our mind na siguro, someone inside the bank wanted the property or they made arrangements with the owner or for whatever purpose it may serve them without intending to sell the property. ang lesson dito, mahirap kausap yang mga tao diyan sa pdic. mag po-post sila ng properties for sale, yun pala, ayaw naman pala nila ibenta! kaya, for those who wants to deal with pdic. ingat na lang kayo diyan!

    1. Hi Tricia, thanks for sharing your experience. Did they at least say if there were any other bidders to justify their rejection of your offer? If not, I can’t blame you of the things that began to run around in your mind. By the way, I have another theory, they might be apprehensive that your husband is a lawyer. I’ve experienced this once and I’ve learned from my broker that some banks are really like that.

    1. Hi Ronald, thanks for catching this. I was wondering why you had this problem because I can open it with no problem until I remembered I was using foxit PDF reader. I was able to simulate the problem you encountered with Adobe acrobat 7. Anyway, I replaced my archived copy on my server with a new copy and it can now be opened by Adobe acrobat. Please confirm if you can also open it. Thanks.

      Hmmm, there is another listing from PDIC’s website that contains a lot of properties for negotiated sale. It might contain the property you are looking for or maybe its in one of their prior auctions/listings. It’s just too bad they don’t keep an archive of their previous listings on their site. At least now I can start archiving their listings here for easy reference for everyone.

    1. Hi milanie, I already sent you an e-mail although the listings can also be downloaded here or here. By the way, these are from PDIC and I am neither connected nor accredited with them. I’m just posting them as a free service to readers and subscribers.

      Can you help me find where this described property is booked as foreclosed property? This lot was previously mortgaged with Gen Santos City Rural Bank, Inc. in Gen. Santos City and was foreclosed on January 15, 1981. Said Rural Bank has closed and I have no idea where its assets and acquired properties are booked.
      The subject property is described as followsL
      Location: Gen Santos City
      Title No: OCT-P-2366
      Owner: Carmenia F. Mendoza
      Area : 602 sq.m.
      No improvements thereon.
      It was not consolidated/transferred in the name of the rural bank. I tried PDIC and BSP but I can’t get results.

      1. Hi Elizabeth, it is most probably with PDIC, you just need to confirm if that closed rural bank is already under the receivership of PDIC. If you can’t find it in their list of foreclosed properties for sale, it may simply mean they have not updated their website and the best way to check would be to call or visit them.
