The Foreclosed House That Blogging Bought!

Imagine this, because of blogging and income from Google Adsense, you were able to buy a foreclosed house. That would be amazing right? But what if I told you that someone has already done that for real? Now that would be awesome!

You may be thinking that it’s me but no.  While I do blog about buying foreclosed properties, and my site also has adsense, my online income is not yet that big, and it was actually someone else who bought a foreclosed house through blogging. Please continue reading to find out who.

I first read about the house that blogging bought way back in December 2008. It was written by James of Pinoy Money Talk.

As mentioned by James, the house that blogging bought was actually a foreclosed property from BPI.  He accumulated enough adsense earnings to acquire the townhouse. No, his adsense earnings were not enough to buy the townhouse in cash, but it was enough to cover the downpayment. Nice!

Come to think of it, if James had enough adsense earnings for the downpayment, then it’s obvious he will have more than enough to cover the monthly amortizations.

The question is, how did he do it?

I guess the question running through your mind right now is – how did he do it? How did James earn enough money from Google Adsense to be able to make a downpayment for a foreclosed property?

Actually, Professor James Ryan Jonas, who is the founder of, will be discussing how to make money online through Google Adsense and other income streams during the Money Summit and Wealth Expo 2011 on July 22-23.

This is just one of the reasons why I look forward to attending the Money Summit this year. I consider James as one of my mentors when it comes to blogging and earning online. Simply put, I am a big fan!

Who else wants to learn how to create another semi-passive income stream through blogging? Raise your hands!

I know I would!

In fact, I used a combination internet marketing (blogging and affiliate marketing to be exact) and real estate investing to help me “retire” from the corporate world.

This time around, I hope to learn more about making money online from James so I can level-up my online earnings.

Anyway, I will  really be at the Money Summit and Wealth Expo because, aside from wanting to learn from James, I will be part of a panel discussion on day 2 of the event.  If you are attending the Money Summit and Wealth Expo 2011, I look forward to seeing you there!

Who knows, we just might learn how to make enough money online to buy foreclosed properties!

Happy learning!


To our success and financial freedom!

  1. bfs in sta.rosa laguna.
    #golden city subdivision to be specific#
    they’re forcing people to get rid of the house and then they already have someone who will then live on that property,and when one of the homeowner is asking if who will stay on that foreclose property but the guy named jobert answered us “why are you asking you dont have the right to ask”
    is the correct way to answer the homeowners of that street.what king of employees do the bfs have??

  2. Blogging just started as a hobby but due to Philippine economy bloggers started to make money out of doing just a hobby.

  3. It is really hard for us invest a house and look for a convenient place to live. Thank you to the sites that give us the chance to do so.

  4. Hi Kuya Jay,

    I’m interested to sit in in Prof James’ class as well. Hehe! Let me know when you’re dropping by UP. Thanks!



  5. I’ve been learning little by little about blogging and also about Internet Marketing in our elective class.

    Goodluck to you Sirs!

  6. Hi Jay! Nice to meet you during the Money Summit. Unfortunately we didn’t have much time to talk then. Thanks by the way for the feature here. You probably don’t need online income anymore because you already have your millions with your foreclosed property investments! 🙂

    • Hi James! Your talk was awesome, it was a great honor to finally meet you during the money summit! Maybe we can have coffee sometime. my wife Cherry suggested that we will sit-in in one of your classes in UP one of these days… and see the nutty professor in action… hehe! I still want to earn online as a form of diversification, and I am quite biased towards internet marketing. BTW, I just signed up for the PMT Elite Club. We hope to see you soon!

  7. Nice blog Mr. Castillo. Mr. James is indeed impressive. For sure many have attended this seminar. Everybody’s interested to know how to do it.

  8. Wow. This is nice. I’m planning to buy my own car and house and lot, too from my blog earnings. Haha. I’m interested in foreclosed properties and consistently receiving updates from different bank. I guess what I don’t know is the entire process of buying foreclosed properties. I have once expressed my interest on one of the properties and was told that site viewing should be done on my own. I was a little bit surprised because I’m used to being guided by real estate agents to site tripping. Do you have a post on how to buy foreclosed properties? Thanks!

  9. Thanks for this post.

    This news is encouraging. There’s a lot opportunity in online industry.


  10. Perhaps the forum of pinoymoneytalk contributed alot to his adsene earnings. Can we expect a forum from this site too? 😀

    • I read from one of James’ comments on his blog (can’t remember exactly which post) that adsense earnings from his forum section is just 20% of his total earnings (if i’m not mistaken).

      I’ve been thinking about adding a forum but it would require a lot of moderators. I need volunteers! 🙂

  11. I guess you are now earning 2k/month, Jay. BTW, I’m happy for your newfound success in making money online and offline. I’m attending the Money Summit-Manila to learn more from the Masters of making massive passive income. See you there.

    • Hi Eleazar, how I wish that were true! James is the one earning big. I hope to follow his footsteps. 🙂

      See you at the Money Summit!

    • Hi Red, it’s not yet that big, so I have not yet created any post about my own adsense earnings. What I can say is – it is enough to cover the rent. 😉
