Some condominium units can now be acquired through a Home Development Mutual Fund (HDMF) or Pag-ibig Fund loan, executives of the housing agency of the Philippines said.
Anthony Maglunsod, Pag-ibig’s assistant manager of operations for Cebu City South, said they’ve raised the loan ceiling from P3 million to P6 million.
Condo units, not previously affordable under the Pag-ibig Fund program, are now covered, he explained.

“As long as the member or borrower can pay the monthly amortization, he or she could avail of a condo loan,” he pointed out.
One of the condominium developments that can be acquired through a Pag-ibig loan is the 18-storey City Loft along Gen. Maxilom Avenue, which its developer Fuente Triangle Realty Development Corp. plans to complete by end of 2013.

Avida Land, the affordable housing arm of Ayala Land Inc., makes it easy for the younger market segment to own a unit in its second Avida Towers Riala condominium by relaxing downpayment terms, a company executive said.

Tess Tatco, Avida Land marketing manager, said they’ve stretched the period for the 20 percent downpayment to 36 months. A typical call center agent can easily afford the three-year monthly payments of P10,800, she pointed out. Avida Land is the affordable housing arm of Ayala Land Inc. in Cebu, Philippines.
Project officer Carlo Aldaba said the first two Avida Towers Riala will be mirror images of each other, having the same 27 residential floors with a maximum of 23 units each level.

Among the four factors used by the Pag-ibig Fund to compute the amount of housing loan that its members may avail of is their monthly net disposable income.
Net disposable income is what’s left of your salary after deducting taxes, mandatory contributions to Pag-ibig and Social Security System (SSS) for the private sector or Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) for the public sector, and loan or other payments (if applicable).
Since Pag-ibig decides on the lowest amount of loan that a member may take out based on either contribution, actual need, loan-to-collateral ratio, or capacity to pay (based on the net disposable income), it is the latter factor that is usually used as basis for most housing loan computations.
The table below is a listing of net incomes and their equivalent housing loan amounts pegged on the loan terms or the number of repayment years.
