Nobody needs to tell you that to buy a home in the Philippines, you must really have patience. Sure, you may have the ability to pay for the house and lot or condo in full, but financing schemes enable you to utilize that lump sum elsewhere. Bank financing is great for this, but there are always a few roadblocks you might want to prepare for.
It can be a very tedious task, especially if you do it alone. When it comes to home loans, tracking documents and approval from banks are usually where the bottleneck is. The amount of paperwork can be overwhelming, especially if you’re juggling a job and family life back home. For most people, this can mean delaying their property goals for a few years.
But it could be way easier. We’ll walk you through it below.
A Quick Intro
As long as you’re eligible, you may take out a home loan for the purchase of a house and lot, vacant lot, townhouse, apartment, condominium unit. You may also get a loan for the financing of the construction or renovation of a property. Home loans may also be used to refinance existing loans or reimburse acquisition costs.
There are two types of home loans: the conventional home loan and the flexible home loan.
The former allows borrowers to make fixed payments over the course of a particular period of time. These may last for up to 20 years and can be had for a minimum amount of ₱500,000. Meanwhile, the latter is a type of loan connected with a banking account. The existing account owner affects the interest rate charged through depositing payments and/or beginning principal repayment.
