Why invest in foreclosed properties in the Philippines? + Top things to consider [Video]

Why invest in foreclosed properties? What are the things you should know before you invest in foreclosed properties? What to look for when inspecting foreclosed properties? Find out in the video below.

I just found this video when I was browsing my friend Allan Ngo’s youtube channel. While we had this interview before the pandemic, it covers time-tested principles that remain applicable and timely NOW, most especially since real estate has bounced back during this “New Normal”.

If you’re new to foreclosed properties, you will definitely learn a lot from this video where we discussed the “essentials” from a beginners perspective.

Anyway, I just realized I have never shared this interview here on my blog, so here goes…
