Overseas Filipino Workers have sacrificed their time away from home, family and loved ones for the common good of establishing a good and decent family life. Though money is not scarce for these group of people, It is smart if each purchase is done with a well-studied and researched purpose. Intentional buying could be challenging for some who care less of money spent but for OFWs each foreign dollar is hard earned as it could mean missed birthday, wedding celebrations or missed family time. Know the essence and purpose of purchasing an investment property through a thorough research of the developer. You may ask real estate agents anything about the property being sold.

Do a self-check

Make sure to have personal knowledge regarding the property. It will be best if you have checked it yourself. Know the location and the advantages or disadvantages it comes with. Have the title seen or have someone you trust check the property from the Philippine Register of Deeds. This is to eliminate bogus titles. This principle will safe guard your monetary investment. Learn the precautionary methods before jumping into decisions with poor sense of judgment.
