3. BDO Home Loan

Building or constructing your own home costs a large amount of money. For example, the average a 2-floor house could range from 3 to 5 million pesos in a typical subdivision. The price is total for house and lot. Of course, there are exceptions for this but my point is you need a big amount to construct your own house from scratch.

Some people cannot save money so fast that they can construct their home right away. Hence, most people look for ways on how to get a loan so that they can earlier build their home.

Other people might apply for a home loan at Pag-IBIG while some people might get a loan from banks. In comparison, bank loan has a higher interest rate than Pag-IBIG.

Owning your own home is the dream of many people. Today, there are also many families renting their house because they cannot afford to buy or build a new one.

BDO can help you buy your dream house through its home loan. You can choose how many years you can complete the payment with fixed rates for each term.


To Wrap Up

Before you apply for any BDO loans, make sure you have the capability to pay the monthly payment. Study and research which interest rate and term best suited for your long-term financial condition. Since loan is a long-term debt, make it a point to increase your income or lessen your expenses so that you will not be short or default in paying your loan.
