While the Live in the Philippines (LiP) Web Magazine has been around since 2006, the LiP Real Estate section is new in 2010. With this Real Estate section, we hope to bring you a selection of homes or properties for sale or rent at various locations in the Philippines. Whether you are looking for a place to buy or rent in Davao, Cebu, Bohol or Metro Manila (or anywhere else in the Philippines) we want to list it here for your convenience.
My name is Feyma Martin, and I am operating this part of our Website! My husband, Bob, operates the Web Magazine part of the website that so many readers enjoy each and every day! But, with so many readers on the Web Magazine, we have found that we get constant requests to help people find properties that they can rent or purchase in the Philippines when they move here. Because we get so many such requests, we have decided to set up this new section of our site and try to bring you the information that you are asking us to give you! When you speak, we try to listen!
Services we can offer you
LiP Real Estate can basically offer you three different services. We can offer you:
Advertising on this site. If you have a house anywhere here in the Philippines, we can help you attract buyers (or renters) by offering you the ability to advertise the property here on the LiP Real Estate Site. Your property will be shown here on the site with any pictures you provide to us. In the listing on the site, there will be information on how to contact you directly, and it is up to you to handle potential buyers or renters. We charge P1,000 (or US$25) per month for listing your property on the site. After a month your listing will be removed, unless you decide to extend it. We will also remove the listing at any time that the property is no longer available. If you wish to commit for a 1 year listing on the site, we can issue you a discount price of P10,000 (US$250) for an entire year listing on the site.
Should you elect to simply advertise your property here on the site, we are offering you advertising services only, and no further real estate services are included for this price.
Please note that any unused time on the site is not refundable. For example, if you buy a 1 month listing for P1,000 and your house sells in one week, we will remove the listing for you, but no part of the listing price is refundable. Our minimum listing time on the site is 1 month, minimum charge is P1,000 or US$25.
Real Estate Listing. Should you need professional Real Estate services, we can offer you that as well through our partner who is a licensed Real Estate agent in the Philippines. We charge a 6% standard fee at the time of sale. The 6% fee includes listing the property here on the site for no additional charge. If your property is a rental property, we charge a fee of one month’s rent should we rent the property for you under the Real Estate Listing option. So, for example, if you want to rent a house for P20,000 per month, and you list with us, when the house is rented, we charge you P20,000 for our services.
Buyer/Renter Services. If you are a potential buyer or renter of a piece of real estate in Davao or elsewhere in the Philippines, I can offer you my expertise. Remember, a real estate agent generally represents the seller, not the buyer. You can hire me as your real estate consultant, and I will be on your side, though. I can assist you by finding the right property that will fit your needs and specifications. I can help you in negotiating a favorable price with the seller. I can review your lease or sales contract to make sure you are not being taken advantage of. If you are new to the Philippines, I can help save you a lot of money, both up front and over time. Don’t be scammed or ripped off, if you hire me I will make sure that this does not happen. My consulting services are generally US$100 per day, although we can negotiate that fee in other ways. For example, if you intend to rent a house, we can negotiate my fee based on the rental price of the property, or even based on how much I can save you on the rent through my negotiations with the landlord. In short, my fee is US$100 per day, or let’s talk and come up with a fee structure that works for you and me. But, remember, when you hire me as your consultant, I will be representing you, not the seller or owner of the property that you are interested in.
So, welcome to the LiP Real Estate section of the site! It is our goal to serve your needs.
