    Since Olx got replaced by the crap Carousell, it is very difficult now to search for real estate on the Philippines. I need some recommendations for good real estate sites.

    I don't know.
    No such thing.

    When you think of the Internet in the Philippines think only of Facebook. Facebook has an arrangement with Globe where instant messenger is free without a plan. For this reason everyone is on Facebook. The rest of the Internet does not exist to the locals. There are a few groups on Facebook that post real estate for sale. I do not find the groups posting anything for sale on Facebook usable.

    The sites you posted will only have a few properties at long nose prices.

    Like another poster said, go to the local sari-sari store.

    Check out 'Marketplace' on Facebook. I've used it successfully to sell property. You can set area limits (partially effective).

    Top right of the Marketplace header. You can also choose categories that interest you on the left of the page. If you're interested in an item you can save the post. Most comms are thru Messenger, because it's free.

    We have found that there are not many comprehensive real estate websites for negros, nothing like the states. However, we've been "looking at real estate" for three years, and found an incredibly low priced lot on the edge of Bacong last year. We found it thru an agent recommended to us thru a friend, which is where you will find most good lots. We've looked at lots with four other "agents" and all the recommendations have been thru friends or acquaintances, from San Jose to Dauin. It's a VERY SMALL TOWN, and between your acquaintances, they will know every serious lot for sale around, or know someone who does.

    And do be careful, never buy a lot unless you have a clear one person title, never a lot with a "tenant." and note that "everything is for sale" at a price, so be sure to check out prices in the 'hood... I looked at one lot with a deceased owner, seven heirs of unknown location, and a tenant farmer. Wouldn't touch that if they GAVE it to me.
