hi guys :) i'm done reading some books on RE investing, but i still have questions in, how do we determine the market value of a property? where do we ask? can we rely on brokers? agents? banks? or can we go directly to the assessors office and ask this?

how do i negotiate with the bank? can i really ask them to lower their asking price to 30%?

i really hope someone would be willing to mentor newbies. i really am very interested to try this! I'm having difficulties overcoming my fear that's why i try to read books on RE investing to at least get myself prepared :book:

i think the next step is to associate myself with knowledgeable/positive people to keep me motivated :)

hope i'm on the right track ;)

i found out today that not all banks pala are that flexible pagdating sa mga non-performing assets nila. this bank (rural bank) requires 50% DP & 2 years installment. the sad part is, some of them are unlocated. bahala na raw ang buyer i-locate ang property and most of their NPAs are not yet consolidated. whew!

pasyal ulit ako next week sa iba pang banks.

Better pa rin if you work for someone or for a company that deals directly or indirectly with real estate and get to learn from their deals. The best teacher is still experience.

hi glomor  :hello: would you like to share some info about companies who works directly/indirectly in RE? wala kasi akong idea jan :)

it's impossible pala to transact with banks regarding their foreclosed properties if you are not employed or self-employed :( unless cash basis ka magbayad. self-employed ako dati, pero closed na ung computer shop ko. bagsak pala ako sa RE investing...

pero i can still try looking for motivated sellers with flexible terms and low price. ang mahirap lang dito sa place namin, ang gusto lang ng tao dito is cash basis. huh!

for a novice in real estate investing much better kung mag-start kayo for a win-win deal, yung no money down by using motivated seller atleast wala kayong puhunan or kung meron man very minimal lang sa umpisa then along the way pagkumita na kayo at the same time nakukuha nyo na yung flow of transaction in real estate in this way basic lang pero its a proven income..

Think twice before you go to foreclosed business madami akong kakilala na nasunog ang pera nila, na-overcome ng liabilities yung sana na casflows plan nila bottomline ang panalo yung banko another subject for foreclosure na naman sayang lang yung investment cost mo for the repair and other incidental expenses pag walang immediate tenant sa property kaya maibabalik lang sa banko ulit yung property swerte naman ng banko kayo pa nagpaganda ng property para taasan nila ulit yung price value.

try to visit regularly sa blogsite dami kayo matutunan on other angle side of real estate investing.

hi tutoy  :hello:

yes you have a point regarding sa foreclosed properties. i'll take your advice...pass muna ako sa mga yan, hanap muna ako ng motivated sellers.

please correct me if i'm wrong. baka kasi iba ang notion ko sa no money down using a motivated seller. ang pagkakaintindi ko kasi diyan is:

-to look for motivated sellers
-then hanap kaagad ng motivated buyer/s.

tama ba? paano po applicable ung win-win deal sa ganitong set-up if for example, hindi flexible ang seller sa terms, like cash basis lang ang gusto niya. how do we go about this?

thanks po for posting here :)

i'll try to visit ur blog regularly :)

hi lilywhite, may konti n kong alam sa buying foreclosed properties.. i can share my little knowledge to u..
Posted on: Jul 14, 2008, 02:09 PM
alam mo, in real estate investing, all u need is some basics, but u dnt have to know  it all, konting guts din, and konting capital, syempre, but dis capital u r tying 2 invest say for example 20% of the cash price, mababawi mo rin in 2-6 months.

hi ace_01! thanks for sharing :)

guts...hmmm meron ako niyan  :hihi: feeling ko nga may pagka-kapal-muks nako sa pag-inquire noon sa mga banks  :D ang lakas ng loob kong magtanong-tanong, at natry ko na ring bumisita sa mga properties nila.

paano ko kaya mababawi kaagad ung investment ko, for example ung 20% DP? ang alam ko lang kasi na way is to find din kaagad a motivated buyer.

may binisita akong res'l lot last week, nasa subdivision siya. before, it was priced at 2,500/sqm (market price ng bank), now it's down to 2,000/sqm (auction). zonal value niya is 3,000/sqm.

if ever na-acquire niyo na po ung property, how much are you going to sell it?

thank you po for any input :)
