Ask Geri: I Have Extra Cash To Invest: Car or Condo?

Share the #GYMBFF:

Both options above are illiquid and very long term commitments. Meaning if you change your mind, or have a need for cash beyond your emergency funds, it will be more difficult to sell these items to have cash.

Should I Get a Car or Condo?

Share the #GYMBFF:

Getting a condo over a car requires lots of guts and risk appetite. But for me, I’d rather spend on an investment with some comfort down the road, rather than spend for comfort now with only a depreciated car left after 5 years.

How and Where to Get a Home Loan in the Philippines?

Share the #GYMBFF:

Note that almost all sellers do not lend 100% of the property price. Usually, buyers need to pay an equity portion (out of pocket) as down payment. Usually around 20-30% of selling price.
