There are several things to consider if you are looking to buy a property in Thailand. Also, many rules and regulations that you have to look at before you make a purchase. One of the easiest ways is to buy a condo. As a foreigner, you are allowed to own a condo, unlike a house which needs to be in Thai or company ownership. To purchase your condo, there will be many issues that are required to be addressed before making the right choice. Whatever your circumstances, the property will have to be in a prime location. All you want in terms of facilities, in essence, it has to tick all the right boxes whether you want it as an investment, retirement or holiday home. The land of smiles has everything you could need. A warm climate all year round, a beautiful countryside, with many tourist attractions and friendly locals making you very welcome.
There are a few vital things to consider when making your condo purchase. You must ensure the condo complex doesn’t have any more than 49% foreign ownership. This is where Gecko Real Estate can make the necessary due diligence, a carefree and straightforward process. So long as the remaining 51% is in Thai ownership, there will be no issue.
Wherever you are in the world location, location, location is always uppermost in your mind. Gecko has access to all the most recent condo developments as well as the latest development that is near completion. On top of that, they have a substantial number of condos on their books, giving you a first-class choice whatever your budget is. Gecko can help with all the aspects of your purchase, from access your needs to amenities, schools, transport, low or high rise. High rise gives the benefits of a great view, quieter, fewer mosquitos, but lower buildings provide ease of access, it’s all down to personal preference. Gecko has properties available throughout Pattaya and the surrounds areas. Their friendly staff will be on hand to make you aware of the properties available. Gecko has the local knowledge to enable them to give you an impartial view and to secure the right property for you.
If you are buying off-plan, Gecko has a wealth of experience and can advise of the development, who the developers are, and who have a good track record of delivering on time. This is important when you are buying any property, but it is more important if you are buying ‘off-plan’.
Gecko can offer that vital finance advice whatever your circumstances are. Using it for your dream holiday home, wanting to make it your ideal retirement place, or wanting to investigate into making it an investment for later. This is where they can advise on the potential yield over the long or short term. There are several rental guarantee options at the moment they can offer that critical advice. The common-sense approach is what Gecko is renowned for, having a name for quality and service.
