Website-hopping with Renzie Baluyut.
One of the first orders of business for me coming back to the Philippines is looking around to check prices on all kinds of things- groceries, fast food items, PCs and laptops, even pieces of real estate.
Not only because I had wanted to see how things (and by things, I mean prices, mostly) have changed since I left for Los Angeles last December, but also because I wanted to have an idea on how much investing I might require, say, setting up a new Metro Manila office, for example, or investing in a property in Makati City.
A friend of mine asked me to check out AyosDito.ph, which as it turns out, is really like a bulletin board of all kinds of things you can buy and sell in the Philippines- not just real estate and cars, but also electronics, apparel and personal effects, as well as hobbies and collectibles.
You want to check out the price range of a slightly used laptop? AyosDito.ph has ’em. What if you wanted all kinds of used items– all kinds of appliances, cameras and mobile phones? AyosDito.ph has ’em too.
You can even search for job listings and rooms or apartments for rent if you need to get yourself one.
You can go search according to region, so you can check out houses not just, say, in the Metro Manila area, but also pieces of real estate in Baguio, Tagaytay, or Butuan City- pretty much wherever you want in the Philippines.
Quite literally, AyosDito.ph is a free online marketplace for all things you can buy and sell in the Philippines. And it’s great for entrepreneurs, business-folk, and just about anyone who has something for somebody else.
