Google the meaning of the latin term caveat emptor and you will get “let the buyer beware.” It is a principle that the buyer alone is responsible to examine, judge, verify and check the condition or suitability of the product.
In the same manner, real estate investment comes with the inherent risk of caveat emptor, therefore it is important to conduct due diligence, inspect personally the property, get professional advise, examine and verify the titles and other evidence of ownership. Determine any unpaid taxes, bills, fees, charges and other expenses prior to actual purchase.
Investors know such risk and they understand the ‘Risk-Return Tradeoff’. The higher the risk, the higher the return but this is another topic for discussion.
Have you noticed those unfinished projects in the metropolis? Buyers should deal only with financially stable developers to make sure that their hard-earned savings will not be tied to a project that takes forever to complete.

The Philippine real estate market outlook today is still very promising according to market experts. Prominent developers like Ayala Land, Vista Land, DMCI, SMDC, Filinvest Land, Robinsons Land, Megaworld, Sta. Lucia Realty and other regional property developers are continuously developing new projects to meet the residential, office, retail and hotel/leisure market leaving behind a number of unsold units in their previous projects.
To dispose their unsold inventories of ready for occupancy units, developers offer a rent-to-own promo to qualified buyers who have regular monthly income but do not have enough savings to pay the down payment in cash. These are mostly located in highly urbanized areas and ideal for BPO workers, OFW’s, and leasing investors.
