  1. https://www.philippines-expats.com/forum/102-housing-and-land/ You can advertise here but you will need to pay a small fee which helps with the running cost of the forum. Visit our Store link from the main menu. Once you have paid the fee come back to this forum and you will see a start new topic button. Make sure you select the correct package. This forum is for real estate ads only. (If you already paid then you just posted in the wrong forum and you need to post in the correct forum)
  2. My condos are going well. I have sold all of them except for my new 2 br I bought last year. the scary part is always waiting for the title once you buy. Even if purchase is on the up and up, it takes over 6 months to get your title sometimes.

  4. Hi Guys, I thought I would share my latest purchase experience with my forum family. Well this is my 3rd purchase, - 3rd condo I have purchased in Cebu, with one difference, this is the first time I have purchased a new one. The biggest difference I found in buying a new condo was one of lot less paperwork, and also stress on my part with all my hard earned peso, that I was actually going to end up with title in my name :). We have all heard of the horror stories where expats have loss everything. Since in Cebu there is really not a conveyance service, so if you are worried about mon
  5. That is soooo true. Couple of years a go I saw these Aussies at Ayala mall who had a little too much to drink. They were on their way out of the mall, and "they" bumped into a couple of local guys....and then they started carrying on like it was the local guys fault, it started to get heated....which attracted one of the security guards, on his approach they all just went their own ways....but it had me thinking....seriously guys...do you know where you are?? This is not Northbridge, Western Australia or someplace like that.
  6. Always pays to have a good property lawyer...I learned this from condo sale 1 the hard way. Now I am onto Condo #3...very cheap 2br....which I thought was a bit sus....I had my lawyer run a CCT check, and turns out the present "owner" never put it in his name to try and get out of paying capital gains tax....hmmmm I really like the condo for its price, but if I have to pay the capital gains to get it in my name, because the owner won't do it....I might have to re-think this purchase.. Good to have a lawyer :)
  7. Any members know any expert Nipa Hut builders in the Cebu region. The mrs and I have some beach front property near Bogo that we would like to build a Nipa Hut for weekend getaways. Cheers
  8. haha....I think he will survive....the new one I am getting, the owner was only renting it out on a month to month basis, because he was selling it, and knew new owner would want to move in :)
  9. I guess I will have to look into that. My current living condo in Tipolo, I plan on moving out of that one and rent out, so that would be 2 renting out in Tipolo, and the new one I am getting, it is a bit bigger than the other 2, so will be kicking tenant out of that one, and moving in there :)
  10. Jack I thought I would bring this old thread back to life. This month I am adding number 3 condo to my collection in Cebu. Which brings me to the thought again, should I be looking into fire insurances or some kind of home insurance now that my portfolio is increasing to preserve my investment in case something happens....or "does anyone bother" :)
  11. We don't have rabies on Oz, however I was in Iraq for 2 tours last year with United nations, and the current does we give them there is one dose stat, and the second one a week later.
