Home buyers and and house investors alike have been victims of real estate scammers for a very long time. Despite the laws put in place to fight scammers  in the Philippine real estate industry, many cases continue to be reported. The common problem is fake titles.

So here are the 5 common real estate scams in the country today, based on my experience:

4 Common Real Estate Scams in the Philippines

1. Sale of Property with a Fake Title.
Some people have purchased vast tracks of land and paid the down payment after seeing the land titles of the property. After a few days that the agent failed to show up, the buyer starts to question and only then starts inspecting the titles through the Registry of Deeds and found them to be fake. Millions are lost to this type of scam as investors are drawn by the low prices of the property. Due diligence is done before purchase or real property, not after the transaction.

What are Curtain Walls/ Glass Facade?

Curtain Walls are architecture elements of standard panels that cover the exterior of the building. It comes from the idea fusion of a whole “wall” made of glass instead of windows penetrating into the walls.

The Modern House: Reincarnations of the Bahay Kubo

Once upon a time, there was a great bamboo stalk. The stalk among many things was warm and fuzy. It had two beating hearts. After a few years the bamboo became full and burst and out came the two great lovers: malakas and maganda. They gathered the splinters and built their home. Malakas from the bottom of his heart used his hair to tie the bamboo to build the rafters and maganda used her light to shine on the home. From them started all the Filipino race. . . . and the legend of the Bahay Kubo.

The bahay kubo has gone a long way from its early beginnings. It was time that tested the kubo’s strength and has grown all our myth of heroes and tribal chiefs with banig (sleeping matt) on the bamboo floor. Read more of this post

Why an Architect’s role is Crucial to any Building Construction

Until today, very many people are confused about engineers and architects. They understand in general about engineers but, for most part, the profession of Architects sounds like sorcery or magic. When people build their apartment, they want their property to have the best investment value. (Other than emotional significance) This is measured by its ability to generate income and have maximum resale potential. At the other end of the builder’s concern is what is the best way to cut on construction cost?

Architects: Sorcery or Magic?

In a world of increasing complexity, architects in the past are tasked around aesthetics – beautifying the simple structures, adding color and light to interiors and adding details such as railings and moldings. But as buildings become more complex, the role of architects become more and more important. They are visionaries that don’t just build what is possible (engineers) but they visualize what could be.

1. Save money and lives.
Through training, architects are trained to anticipate possible conflict on the plan. A house with a simple use need less analysis between bedrooms and living room. As more functions are intertwined at an apartment or high school building, it is valuable to see logically and analytically which function should be beside each other. Imagine the wrong position of a Clinic very far from the sports area – it could for years save lives. Read more of this post
