2012 is about to end and I’m sure a lot of you out there are thinking of ways to jump-start the coming new year. If you are planning to get into real estate investing, then MoneySense’s Ultimate Guide to Property Investing (First Edition) is a guidebook (in magazine format) you might be looking for.
It is chock-full of information which would-be real estate investors need and want to know.
Of course, we are a bit biased as Jay and I are contributing authors. We have contributed the following articles in the book:
- Buying Foreclosures and Participating in Auctions by Jay Castillo
- Due Diligence and Property Inspections by Jay Castillo
- Taxes on the Sale of Real Property by Cherry Vi M. Saldua-Castillo
Thanks again to Heinz Bulos for giving us the opportunity to be contributing writers!

If you want to buy a copy, it’s only Php250.00 (IMHO, it’s worth every centavo and more). We were able to find copies at the magazine areas of Powerbooks Megamall and Greenbelt 3. You may opt to ask for assistance from the salesperson because it might take you a longer time if you will search for it among the magazines available in the magazine area.
To our success and financial freedom!
