Hi everyone my first post, almost ready to move to Pattaya, house sold in UK, so I am very soon seriously on the market for two things, I don't expect to plunge in two feet. But I want to look at a Condo for about 2 Million on a buy to let basis.

 

Do not buy any property in Thailand until you have lived in or very near it for at least a year.

There is massive oversupply of rental property here. The likelihood of finding a tenant may not be high. Finding a decent tenant even less likely.

Whatever you buy is unlikely to increase in value. You will probably pay far more than it's worth also.

You are unlikely to hear the truth from anyone in any way connected with any sale, and you should assume that they are all trying to steal from you. That way you wont have any bad surprises.

Op. My friend and his Thai wife owns 3, 3-story units in the Soi Khao Noi next to Tops Supermarket, the location could be called "A1" at that area.

 

Your business on the ground floor, ware room second floor and living in the top.

 

Electricity and water bills directly to the officies, no middlemans here or there.

 

Buildings are about 2-3 years old.

 

He is coming next month, then I know better.

Regarding buying a condo, I would recommend talking to an owner or two in the complex (unless its a new complex) to find out how its run and the financial status of the complex.
Wouldn't they be a bit thick to tell you if it wasn't run well?

I've contacted a few agencies over some condos for sale and they've all been sold, my guess is they are either too lazy to remove the ads or prefer to use them to get people in

Or honest, what's their advantage of lying?  I'm not talking about owners that are trying to sell.

Owners will have an interest in condos selling for as much as possible. I think you'd get an honest opinion if the condo was run well etc, less so if run badly, maintenance money gone missing, rubbish JP. An ex owner or renter with some knowledge may be useful but ideally I'd like to see the accounts and records of maintenance fund

Yes take your comments on board, plan is to rent, and see how it goes. If a purchase of a property  means it is unlikely to rise in value, and little chance of getting good tenants, then the whole idea is pointless, and I certainly not tie up any funds in that. Doesn't really surprise me, and I certainly not looking for any stress with a dodgy venture or poor investment. So thanks for your comments.

In my building few co-owners have the faintest idea what is going on. They are some of the most stupid people I have ever met anywhere. As long as the pool doesnt have turds floating in it they assume that the building is well-run.
