DETAILS OF TOPICS
REAL ESTATE: OPPORTUNITIES,
WHAT YOU NEED TO LEARN BEFORE INVESTING
Whether we are in economic slowdown and looming recession or economic recovery or boom, real estate is always the better investment alternative for the moneyed investors, and as such, there is a strong need to guide incoming beginners and prospective real estate investors, dealers and developers away from the sad misfortunes of loss-making investments. Although real estate investing is one investment area that yields many opportunities and long financial security, this is realized only with knowledgeable investors. Because of the broad, diverse and changing intricacies and techniques of real estate, many newcomers may suffer business failure instead.
The 4-hour lecture will provide helpful guidelines to the benefits of beginning and prospective real estate owners, investors, dealers, developers and realty professionals. It will cover the following: review of the different investment motivations; why invest in real estate; pitfalls and traps in real estate investments; why real estate appreciates; pros and cons of investing in vacant land; introduction to the different areas of opportunities, techniques and how to’s in real estate investment such as buy and sell or lease; build and sell; rehabilitation of foreclosed and damaged properties; master leasing; converting apartments to townhouses or condominiums; and developing vacant/raw lands.
Also included is a general orientation to all the basic knowledge that is essential to a profitable and successful real estate investment such as real estate economics, legal aspects and contract documents, financing and analyzing investments, property appraisal, property development, development rules and regulations, property management, real estate taxation, property valuation or appraisal and others.
ANALYSIS OF PROSPECTIVE
REAL ESTATE INVESTMENTS
Whenever an investor is confronted with an investment proposal or opportunity, one of the questions that had to be answered is “Is this prospective investment acceptable”. The answer to that question depends on the investment objectives of the investor and/or his personal circumstances including that of his money and his perception of the risks involved in the proposed investment.
While many investors hastily jump to conclusion primarily on “gut feel” or hunch and still manage to profit from the investment, none is better than conducting a thorough investment analysis. In many cases, the real reason to those who relied on their hunch or gut feel is they do not know how to do an analysis of the proposed investment.
Analysis of real estate investments is the process of determining the acceptability of a proposed real estate investment according to the expectation of a specific investor. It involves the detailed comparison of the expected benefits against all the risk. In the process, some assumptions are to be made. Optimistic assumptions will make the investment looks very acceptable jeopardizing the investor while good business opportunities may be lost by making pessimistic assumptions. Comparatively, real estate investment analysis is more complex than that of other investments that it requires more knowledge and experience.

Lecturer: Atty. Rex Enrico V. Cruz
Anyone who intends to acquire or lease a peace of real estate or who intends to go into any real estate business should be aware of the importance of knowing the different legal aspects of a real estate transaction. This will prevent being swindled or victimized by unscrupulous operators and in other cases avoid misunderstandings that may result to expensive and time consuming judicial court proceedings.
This lecture will cover Contract of sale, options, earnest money, assignment of lease and sublease, issues on improvements introduced by the lessee, sale of leased properties, contract registration and documentations and many other legal questions.
In any real estate investment or project, all the revenues and expenses were estimated and pre-determined at its very start or conception, serving as the basis for the acceptance or rejection of the proposed investment. The realization of the projected revenues and expenses can negatively be affected by unforeseen events. One of such is tax penalties and surcharges that can be brought about by neglect, ignorance or incapacity to pay on the part of the investor.
Considering that there are frequent changes and issuances of new revenue regulations, new and would be investors and even experienced ones should be knowledgeable and updated on the changes in the taxation rules in order to pay the correct taxes at the right time, thus avoiding penalties.
Topics to be taken are Taxes on Sales and Lease that will include Capital Gains Tax, Withholding Tax, Documentary Stamp Tax, Percentage Tax, Transfer Tax, and Value Added Tax, taxbasis and how to compute taxes, when and where to pay,
BIR forms, exemptions from taxes,
latest Revenue regulations and other updates.
