Anyone know a good real estate agent in Lipa, Batangas


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Question in the topic.  Anyone know a good, honest real estate agent in Lipa?

Right now I'm interested in foreclosed houses but we are also looking for anything that's under 3 million pesos or so.  We've looked online a lot but I know that's not most of what's out there.

Thanks!😀😀

May be true, and many poorly constructed cookie cutter houses built by large developers are not worth the land they stand on.  Slight exaggeration, but you know what I mean.

Hi all, Figured I'd bring some closure to this.  We did a lot of looking and my wife decided that Lipa wasn't her thing and Tagaytay was too expensive, so we bought a 2 br/2 bath house in Tuy, Ba

I see your point HK. However, when we looked at homes and condos here, even L could see that the quality was very poor. She had her home constructed locally and was on site every day to guide the buil

We're looking in the Lipa area as well.  But my wife wants a hobby farm, maybe a hectare, and we'll build from ground up.  We've been looking on line as well, and I think everyone selling on line is looking for a rich American/European/Australian, so the prices are pretty jacked up.  We've been working with a woman who we dealt with before on a real estate transaction, but I think she's in Cavite and doesn't stray much further south than Tagaytay, at least during COVID epidemic.  If you're still looking for a real estate person I can pass you her name. We're putting everything on hold right now because we can't really take any action until COVID is behind us.

Seems to be that way everywhere.  I don't think the Covid impact has hit yet, so there may be opportunities coming.

The prices in the Lipa area for agriculture land have actually been increasing this year. There is definitely a new trend of people from Manila buying up raw land in Batangas and Laguna.

I doubt the price of raw land will drop, but i think it might for condos and houses.

Sadly, you don't always get what you pay for here...

We looked at some houses in Lipa yesterday and my wife wasn't much impressed.  I wasn't either to be honest.  Seems like the newer built houses are smaller in subdivisions that are just starting out and scarcely populated.  The prices really weren't in line for what you get even with the multitude of "Discounts".

We visited a few subdivisions and were honestly very surprised at the number of vacant houses and foreclosures.  I think we'll be talking more to a few subdivisions and banks about these.

I actually enjoyed the hustle and bustle of the Lipa area and its multitude of shopping and amenities.  My wife was much less enamored of the area and it was too crowded and busy for her tastes.  So we are looking to try and compromise with areas like Batulao, Tuy, Alfonso, Amadeo, etc that are out of the main cities but are still accessible to their many amenities.😀

We are actually talking to a few real estate brokers who have a pretty good grasp of our wants and budget.  Interesting thing about this country is that a lot of the real estate posting happens on Facebook groups.

On the other hand, what would we get in our home countries for what we pay for a property here - at least in my area?  Not much in all honesty.

Many variables here, but the extremely overvalued Philippine housing market (on higher end houses) is one the big reasons I am going to be moving the family to the U.S.  We have discussed it in other threads, but when I moved here 8 years ago 5-7 million pesos would get you a really nice house.  Now the same type of house has asking prices of 15-20 million.  For 15 million I can get a very nice 3-4 BR house in several areas of the U.S., built to modern codes.  I think a lot of the extreme rise in prices is driven by foreigners.
