  1. Good bones, But needs paint, cabinets, air con, screens, etc…big investment items to put in someone else house..Pass…owner isn’t willing fix up or improve there own property, imagine when you will need them to fix something.

  2. Too expensive for 20k for that condition. The ower jacks the price up. Cause everybody in the Philippines know to ask for tawad (discount). Lol

  3. Nice thorough review. One exception. You actually said “nice quiet area.” You can’t be serious! The roosters did not shut up for even a second the entire time you were there. No thanks. Not for free.

  4. What’s with not painting your properties in the Philippines? People build shiny new houses then don’t do upkeep and let them get ruined. Maintenance is not a thing here.

  5. I have the exact floor tile in the house I’m sitting in right now in Va. It was owned by Filipinos when it was new 40 years ago.

  6. It seems to me lots are bigger in dumaguete then other areas in the Philippines?? Usually the houses hardly have any garden at all when I go on real estate websites…

  7. Sick times = sick rent
    Basic house worth max. 300 USD
    Not a match for your current house at 180 USD.

    Why don’t you consider Valencia ?
    5C cooler than Duma and cheap electricity / power plant ! /

  8. Why are so many houses there painted in such bright colours and the paint is shiny, I’ve never understood it? Anyone know why?

  9. Maintaining houses is a problem throughout southeast Asia. In addition, there seems to be a lack of forethought in design and construction. Shower curbs and doors, functional cabinets, kitchen layouts, electrical outlets, screens, ventilation, parking, etc., are all overlooked. If you are planning on moving to Asia, you better plan on getting used to roosters, barking dogs and debris fires. Those things are everywhere, even in the big cities. Finding an ideal spot will feel like hitting the lottery. Good luck.

  10. Sup Ned.if you got friends looking for a long term place in Dauis,Panglao Bohol,please let me know. Got couple units. I am very picky with my future tenants. πŸ™‚ Thx

  11. Way overpriced Ned. The owner would have to do ALL the things you mentioned and then some for it to be worth that, and they would have to offer a long term lease with no price hikes.

    In your case, why don’t you just buy ?

  12. Constantly hearing the roosters. I guess you have to accept it. Needs a better kitchen, cabinets etc. Not a well thought out home design.

  13. Can never understand why they have such small kitchens in such large houses considering filippinas like spending time in the kitchen

  14. I am impress with the property. Of course some minor touch ups are necessary but, for a 3 bed room at 20 thousand pesos house. I like that deal.

  15. Hi ned loverly place beautiful house very nice ned plenty of space inside lot of room it’s a pitty that some lttle things need doing before you move in. Personally I’d be asking if you could paint and put shelves up. Loverly place though it should be thenm to do though. Scott expat in the philippines. I will say though your house looks better mate. scott expat in the philippines. πŸ‘πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­πŸ˜ŽπŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‘

  16. Just a little bit of a clean up that’s all.other wise all good looks a nice house. scott expat in the philippines. πŸ‘πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­πŸ˜ŽπŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‘
