OFWs share how they are managing with their investments

So how is it, investing in real property? We asked and they say:

Jake L. Lastimosa
Aircraft Technician

“May condo na ako, pati house and lot. Kada property Php20,000. So, dapat padala ko sa Pilipinas more or less ay Php80,000 kasama na yan lahat sa anak ko.”

Sherwin Paul Reyes
Doctor of Optometry
8 years in UAE

“May house and lot na ako at isang bakanteng lote. Dati almost 50% ng sweldo ko napupunta sa property na around below Ph4 million ang value. This year, balak kong magpatayo ng bahay. Sa ngayon kumikita na yung house and lot namin dahil pinaparentahan na yung studio part ng house and lot namin.”

“May condo na kami, isa sa Pasay, isa sa Baguio. Below Ph4 million ang value kada isa. Nag-invest kami sa real property para magkaroon ng passive income, pati na rin para makapagplano for retirement. Dati around Php30k kada buwan ang pinapadala ko sa Pilipinas para lang sa property.

Ngayon, nagse-save ako pati nag-i-invest. Save, kasi need to have something for emergency and retirement. Invest din kasi yun po ang mag-wowork at kikita ng tuloy tuloy kahit matanda na po kami.”
