If you are looking to buy a home for yourself or to invest in, consider foreclosed properties sold in
Metro Manila for their lower prices. Banks and lending institutions offer foreclosed properties that
they would like to be sold quickly, so they are willing to negotiate the prices with prospective
buyers like yourself, too. In some cases, you can find these homes through the listings of real

them, be sure to consider the following things about foreclosed properties:
Not all foreclosed properties are in poor state – A foreclosure is the legal process
where the lender attempts to recover a loan’s balance from the homeowner who has ceased

properties and that you are taking advantage of another homeowner’s misfortune when you
buy their house.

occupied, you need to consider inspecting it for wear and tear and make the necessary
refurbishments or repairs. Consider buying a foreclosed property in Metro Manila that will be

profitability, especially if you are planning to rent it out. So, if it is in a bustling and fast-
developing area, with proximity to transportation hubs, its value is likely to appreciate.
Other points to consider are proximity to educational institutions, entertainment hubs,
shopping areas, business districts, and health facilities. Consider the safety of the area, too,
such as zero to low crime rate and flood-free zone.
Prepare your financing – Get pre-approved for a loan to increase your chances of being
able to find the right foreclosed property that will fit your needs. It should help draw sellers
