Infographics: Real Estate in Real Time

“In any market, in any country, there are developers who make money. So I say all of this doom and gloom, but there will always be people who make money, because people always want homes.” – Sarah Beeny

There are many ways to promote your real estate. Market demand will always be there but it is always a good idea to know your market. Are they on social media? Do they prefer email delivery? If you are aware of your market, it is easy to know which tools to use.

I just came back from my hometown in Cebu. My sister and I checked out the new development of Avida Towers Riala that is located within Cebu Park District. The IT park used to be the old Lahug Airport that my dad used to bring us to when we were kids. Today there is a lot of development there in the spheres of business, banking, finance, I.T. and tourism services, among others, as well as residential and commercial developments to complete the live-work-play dynamics within the community.

Good thing I found out about HSBC latest home loan promo. Right now, the interest rate of my home loan is 9.5%. HSBC is offering 6.99% for 1 year period and 7.99% if you get a lock in period of 2 to 3 years.

For those of you who plan to buy a new home, this is a good rate. I remember the first home loan I got in year 2000 was from BPI Family bank. Interest rate was then 14% then it slowly decreased through the years. Buying your first home or upgrading your current dwellings is an exciting and daring venture for most. After all, buying or building a new home is a process that needs a lot of planning, patience, and most of all, money. But don’t let your financial limitations get in the way of your dream home – especially now that HSBC is offering an all-time low interest rate on their home loans.

If you apply for a home loan from HSBC between July 5 to September 30, 2010, you get to enjoy the following interest rates for 1-year, 2-year-, 3-year, or 5-year loans.

1 year: 6.99%

Subdivision and Housing Developers Association, Inc

I had a chance to understand more of the Subdivision and Housing Developers Association, Inc (SHDA) and of their past and present accomplishments. Their byline “One Voice nad One Organization Uniting all Housing Developers (Horizontal & Vertical) Nationwide” is very assuring. It is heartening to know that a group is working out ways to help out the real estate industry in the Philippines. Despite the slow down of economic growth globally, low-cost housing is still in demand which is up to the 3 million peso range. The market is made up mainly of our overseas filipino workers.

One of its noble mission is to produce 400,000 affordable and decent housing units annually which most of our countrymen need. Aside from this, I also believe that a good mortgage package needs to be in place.

SHDA played the lead role in advicing Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC) Chair Noli de Castro to reduce interest rates on housing loans in 2006, the extension of repayment terms to a maximum of 30 years; and an increase in the loan-to-value ratio of the housing unit used as a collateral. There are also proposed bills which are being monitored such as Senate Bill Nos. 37/422 “An Act Establish a Socialized and Low-Cost Housing Loan Restructuring Program” which has been enacted into a law last month. There are other pending bills and it is reassuring to know that soon, some of our countrymen will be able to afford to purchase their own homes.
