Visit your chosen property from 8:30am to 5:30pm, weekdays, ( or contact first our Sales Advisers ). Most of our properties have caretakers who can assist you during your visit (except for condos and vacant subdivision lots which are under the watch of the respective condo/subdivision homeowners’ association). For condos, you have to coordinate first with our office on where to get the keys for your easy access.

Just a word of advice... Since our properties sell fast, we advise you to call us first before your scheduled visit just to check the important details of the property and if it is still available for sale. You can also verify from us on the best way to get to the property.

 2. I have made my choice, how do I purchase a property?

If you choose a particular Buena Mano property and have already decided to buy, submit to us your Offer to Purchase right away! 

All offers must be submitted via our online submission platform. The time reflected on our automated registry will serve as the official time of our receipt of your offer. 

Please note that even when an Offer is duly submitted, this is on a ‘first-come, first-served’ and ‘as-is, where-is’ basis, and still subject to the property’s availability. All Offers received are also subject to Management’s final approval. 


3. What do you mean by the ‘first-come, first-served’ policy?

‘First-come, first-served’ is our service policy whereby all Offers to Purchase are attended to in the order that they are received without other biases and preferences. This policy shall apply only to received Offers which are equal to or higher than our asking price/selling price.

4. What do you mean by the ‘AS IS, WHERE IS’ policy?

‘As-is, where-is,’ pertains to the existing physical, documentation, and legal conditions of our properties at the time of submission of a buyer’s Offer to Purchase. As it is also our service commitment to fully disclose all material property information to every property buyer, we strongly encourage you to visit and inspect your property of choice. Strategic Asset Management and Sales ( SAMS ) and your Buena Mano Sales Team, to the best of our knowledge, is not aware of any lien, encumbrance, or other hidden technical/legal conditions or defects affecting our properties other than those disclosed (if any). By submitting your formal Offers, all buyers therefore confirm to assume responsibility for such special concerns and will forever relieve SAMS and your Buena Mano Sales Team for any actual or perceived loss, damages, and/or other subsequent liability arising from the sale.

5. What are Green Tags, Yellow Tags, and Red Tags?

Green Tags, Yellow Tags, and Red Tags are the official branding/classification for our Buena Mano properties for sale (our properties are color-coded for your easy reference):

a. GREEN TAG properties are real estate properties already cleared with Titles and Tax Declarations duly consolidated / transferred under the name of the bank which foreclosed the property/ies with its authorize caretakers, particularly those with improvements and can be visited anytime.

b. YELLOW TAG properties are real estate properties with any of the following "special concerns".  Titles and/or Tax declarations are still in process of transfer to the bank which foreclosed the property/ies; or Titles are already under the name of the bank but the properties are still occupied by the former owners, tenants or illegal occupants; or there are property documents that still need to be updated.

c. RED TAG properties are real estate properties specifically with pending court cases (under litigation) filed by either the previous owners against the bank or 3rd party claimants. Titles of these properties are either with legal annotations, adverse claims, or lis pendens.  Interested  party is directed to verify status of the case/s from the court/s.
