Owning a house is a dream for a lot of Filipinos. However, income usually comes as a constraint in achieving this dream. That is why some individuals would instead abandon their dream of owning a house. PAG-IBIG understands this predicament. That is why PAG-IBIG offers acquired assets to interested homebuyers. Through the PAG-IBIG acquired assets, interested homebuyers can now avail foreclosed properties that give them the chance to purchase a house and lot at a lower price and allow them to be one step closer to their dream of owning a home.
What is PAG-IBIG acquired assets?
PAG-IBIG acquired assets are properties seized due to the failure of the original owners who availed the PAG-IBIG housing loan to pay their monthly amortization. PAG-IBIG usually gives borrowers who defaulted a chance to repurchase their expropriated property. The same opportunity is also given to tenants who rented and occupied the seized property.
However, suppose the original owners are no longer interested in repurchasing the property. In that case, PAG-IBIG will open the seized property for public bidding and offer it at a cheaper cost to recuperate from the unpaid loan and create income to sustain the PAG-IBIG Fund. If the sale via auction still fails to sell the seized property, it is then posted for a negotiated sale where homebuyers can purchase the property discounted as much as 30%.
How to avail PAG-IBIG acquired assets?
You can avail of PAG-IBIG acquired assets in three ways – bidding for the property, buying under negotiated sale, and purchasing through a PAG-IBIG housing loan.
