Many people tend to engage in superstitious beliefs, whether in business, love, or life. Guided by age-old traditions and cultures, some would base their important decisions on what might bring good or bad luck. The seventh month of the Chinese lunar calendar—from July 29 to August 26 this year—is when ghost month takes place.
According to this popular Taoist and Buddhist tradition, it is believed that during this time, the underworld opens its gates, and souls wander around to be in the land of the living. Because of this, some of us cannot help but become more careful to avoid upsetting the roaming spirits and attracting great misfortunes.
You could be skeptical about purchasing new properties, investing in the stock market, or entering major financial ventures this August. Activities like these are said to be inauspicious. However, real estate investment can be your best defense against ghost month. Here’s why.
The prices of real estate properties during Ghost month are usually lower.
If you’re not that superstitious, you can take it as an excellent opportunity to invest in real estate properties during ghost month because of the possible drop in prices. Discounts are often offered to attract more homebuyers this season when sales are expected to be low.
Some people tend to avoid big purchases. However, you can be considered lucky, considering you’re most likely to find a great deal during this time when maximizing your budget is feasible. With a strategic location, the property will have a vast potential to appreciate in the future, so you don’t have to worry about the market value of your home bought during Ghost Month.
You can use Ghost month to do your in-depth research.
Now, suppose you’re a firm believer of this concept and are worried about the bad luck you could face because of buying a property during ghost month. In that case, you can still utilize this time to research and plan your strategies for September.
Suppose you think it’s not worth the risk to invest in August. In that case, you may hold off on buying properties and instead contact developers to check out new deals, profitable options, and bargains. When Ghost Month is finally over, you’ll have the advantage of buying a property you’re comfortable with.
You can market the property to people who don’t practice the tradition.
On the other hand, those selling properties during ghost month still have the opportunity to market them to those who do not practice the tradition. You can also look at the Filipino or Filipina spouses married to Americans, Europeans, and Australians looking for residence here. Foreigners are generally not permitted to own land in the Philippines. However, they can still legally buy a unit in a condominium in the country if foreign ownership of the total condo units in the development isn’t exceeding 40 percent.
