Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) sacrifice a lot for their loved ones, even if it means braving loneliness and homesickness to secure a better life and a more secure future. Bria Homes aims to help OFWs in directing them in their right investment options. The real estate company has come up with a webinar especially for OFWs through FB Live.
OFWs want to ensure that the money they send home does not go to waste. Most OFWs consider investing their money to grow it over time and prepare them for retirement. If you are an OFW looking for a long-term investment, you have to consider investing in real estate.
Remember, when you purchase a house and lot or a condominium, you are not just buying an asset. You are actually getting an investment since the value of these properties appreciates over time, given favorable market conditions.
Although this type of investment requires a large sum of money as a down payment, it can give you higher confidence that if you make the right decisions, you will be able to earn more than the value of your investment, and in many cases, more than all of the alternative investments.
If you want to know more about real estate investing and why it is a great investment choice for OFWs, we’ve got you covered.
Bria Homes, one of the country’s leading housing developers has recently launched a special webinar series that talks about all things real estate for OFWs. Catch the exciting episodes this coming November 20 and 27, 2021 on Bria Homes’ official Facebook page.

The Real Estate Industry
Diversifying your investment portfolio is essential especially if you are an OFW. As most investors would say, putting all your eggs in one basket could cause you to suffer a total loss in the blink of an eye. But when you diversify and invest some funds in the stock market, other funds in bonds, and some in real estate, you can definitely increase your chances of higher earnings and get fewer losses.
However, despite this popular investment advice, many people are still averse to investing in real estate because they think it poses a lot of risks and that they need a lot of money to be able to invest.
If you’re thinking about investing in real estate, get ready as you’re about to embark on one of the best investment journeys of your lifetime. If you have not invested in real estate before, this is the best time for you to learn about real estate investing and the top reasons why you should consider it.
Webinars to Remember
As one of the country’s leading real estate developers, Bria Homes aims to educate Filipinos, young and old, living here in the country and abroad about the value of real estate investing.
In fact, it has successfully launched its first set of webinars last week that talked about millennials, investors, and their investments.
The pilot episode, “Millennials: The New Breed of Investors” was held last November 6, 2021, and talked about the millennial generation, how they are changing the housing market, and home buying trends influenced by this generation. Meanwhile, the second episode, “Millennial Guide on Buying Their Real Estate Investment” was held last November 13, 2021.
The said webinars talked about some investment tips and quick guides for those who would like to start their home buying and real estate investing journey and presented investment options that are available for millennials and how they could possibly attain them. It also featured financial coaches who have also experienced success in real estate investing.
Webinars to Catch This Month
With the goal of teaching real estate investment to OFWs, Bria Homes will be launching its second webinar series with a focus on our modern-day heroes. Catch the exciting episodes entitled “Kabayan, why should you invest in real estate in the Philippines?” and “Guide for OFWs Applying for Home Loans in the Philippines” on November 20 and 27, 2021 respectively.
1. Kabayan, Why Should You Invest in Real Estate in the Philippines?
This exciting episode will premiere on Saturday, November 20, 2021, and will tackle the common money mistakes OFWs commit, tips on how they should start saving, and the importance of having a home to call your own. Learn from our special guest speaker, Ms. Marissa Del Mar, National Real Estate Association of the Philippines Chairwoman, and OFW Partylist President.
OFWs are one of the significant contributors to our economy due to their remittances. Filipinos working abroad have one goal in mind, to be able to provide a better future for their loved ones. They don’t mind working in unfamiliar territories, leaving their families, and missing out on special occasions just to be able to provide for their needs and invest for the future.
However, it is a sad reality that some OFWs go back home with nothing in their pocket, not able to save up money after years of working abroad. These OFWs might have not managed their income. Bria Homes hopes that a webinar for OFWs like this would be able to reach our kababayans and help them avoid these common mistakes.
2. Guide for OFWs Applying for Home Loans in the Philippines
The second episode from the said series will be held on November 27, 2021.
While many Filipinos have gone the extra mile to pursue their dreams far from their home and fulfill their aspirations to provide a better life for their loved ones by working abroad, they often face challenges when it comes to investing their hard-earned money.
OFWs come home once every few years to spend time with their families or celebrate important milestones. As an OFW, having your second home means relaxing when you come back home and just enjoying quality time with your family.
If you are an OFW, you want every cent of your hard-earned money to be well-spent. But more than the tangible indication that you have “finally made it” as an OFW, you should understand that investing in a real estate property gives you a lot of advantages (and some challenges) that you should be aware of.
Bria Homes aim to educate our OFWs on their housing loan choices so that they can acquire their dream home with their hard-earned money easily and hassle-free.
Remember that the opportunity for earning money outside of the country is not permanent. OFWs must find other means to support themselves or earn more money, in addition, to supplement their income as OFWs.
And what other way to do that than by investing in real estate to be able to earn more money in the long run. It might be riskier, but it also comes at a higher cost. Additionally, learning and adapting to a new method of money circulation is a must for daily circumstances that you may encounter in the future.
Third and Last Series for the Year
As the last two legs of the webinar series, these sets will provide the fundamentals of real estate investing such as reasons to invest amidst pandemic, income opportunities and the age of digitalization, and how it has affected the real estate market.

Real estate is a great way to diversify your investment portfolio as an OFW. You can offset the risk of high-risk investments, such as money invested in the stock market or bonds. Moreover, if you invest in an affordable home and convert it into a rental home, you can enjoy the cash flow while the property appreciates, giving you significant capital gains when you need it most – in your retirement.
