Understanding the real estate debacle – Learning more

Many of us are now numb to the real estate news. However, it doesn’t mean it doesn’t remain important or valuable both to learn about, understand and follow.

Typhoon Ondoy and the "Filipino Pride" ... washed away, perhaps?

"Rain rain go away come again another day." But this was not the case last Saturday - September 26th. I was caught by surprise with Typhoon Ondoy's heavy downpour as J P Rizal Avenue (the main road running parallel to Marikina River, coming from Marikina City Proper, towards Concepcion, Marikina) was suddenly knee-deep - thus stalling all vehicles on the road. I had to walk through the rain-water flood, inching slowly towards Concepcion Commercial Center, needing to buy 3 bowls of Tropical… Continue
