Frequently Asked Questions



What is a housing Loan?


A housing loan is a loan from a bank or lender to a person so that they can purchase or build a home.

A housing loan or mortgage loan enables people to purchase a property by lending money to the buyer. The property then serves as security in case of default of payment. If you want to purchase a home in the Philippines you will most likely need a housing loan. First consider how much you can afford to pay each month, this will help you calculate how much you can borrow and what duration. Remember it's always best to repay your debt quickly, the longer you borrow money the more interest you will pay. Banks usually require a 20% deposit (loan to value = ltv) so if you're going to buy a condo or home for 2.5 million pesos the bank will require you make a down payment of 500,000 pesos towards your loan.
