  • have the financial ability to make the payment for the property, whether in full or through financing.

If you have a representative in the Philippines, such as a trusted relative or friend, you can obtain a Special Power of Attorney (S.P.A.) from the Philippine Embassy in your country of residence, and designate that person to represent you in purchasing a property.

If you have no representative in the Philippines, you may browse through the website to know about the available properties, call us long distance, or send us an inquiry, and we will reply to your questions the best we can. You can also make an appointment with us the next time you visit the Philippines.
