    the laguna homes ChiangMai.

    This is the village that I luve in.
    It is divided into 6 phases, the newest one being the Golden Teak House Phase.

    Only a couple have gone up so far and I have taken a couple of pictures of them...



    I really like these style houses, but with a 13 million baht starting price, they are very expensive by Chiangmai satandards.

    Thai Golden Teak House phase 6

    Phase concept “Luxury living....Traditional style”

    The houses are built from teak wood and decorated in traditional Lanna style, this shows the true beauty of Thai design and architecture. We offer two styles, each has a main home, guest house, private swimming pool and landscaped garden, all of which are designed and built in the same traditional style.

    The prices begin at Thirteen million five hundred and ninety thousand. Expected completion for sale is December 2006.
    These are some pics of the interior from the village website...

    CMN,

    I'm afraid not SK.

    It's 110 sq metres, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, i added a kitchen at the back for 30,000 baht.
    Land is around 7,900 a sq wah, so half the cost was land cost, you can still get land in CM for less than 4,000 a sq wah.

    Yes, most seem happy to cook and wash up outside.
    Bloody uncivilized i reckon.

    Think I'll take some pics of my kitchen now.

    CMN ... this thread is helping me sort out a few things. One of my worries is about a house and land if I decide not to live in Phichit. I'm pretty much debt free but I've only got enough in savings to do this right but one time. Your type house fits my needs perfectly.

    My wife seems to think that we might be able to get a bargain deal on a repo through a bank. What do you think ?

    That's certainly an option.
    I saw some great bargains with Siam City Bank.
    Might be able to find some on their website, though I haven't looked.

    Unfortunately, my wife, being Thai and all is scared of ghosts and stuff.

    Yes you can.
    I bought a house just after the crash in 97 and got a real bargain.
    You will need to look for a long time though.
    You have to find the right property and a bank manager who is realistic.

    They tend to sell the cheap repo houses to "favoured" customers.

    I'm just impressed that CMN's house has a proper footpath and kerbing.

    As for my fridge, it was a wedding present, there is no way that I would pay that much money for anything

    certainly do, all day everyday. Well the water every day and the ice everytime I am on the rum.

    Visiting kids love it and go home sloshing as they are so full of water because of the novelty of it.

    I even fill up me water bottle from it and take it to work.

    yes, I love those traditional Thai swimming pools and gardens

    estate agents the world over do talk a lot of crap!!

    look OK though, but pricey

    as for bargains, my wife trawls through Bankok bank auction stuff and finds some good bits and pieces. She reckons the government site is better, more interesting houses often

    but the best way of finding the house you want is to cycle round and find the "for sale" notices, with a Thai speaking person, of course.

    agents are a pain, they just stick on 25% for themselves for not much work.
    I have reported your post

    I have gone to a few of these auctions up here. All the decent properties are bid on bu the bank for full price. if the bank isn't going to bid, i.e let it go it really aint; worth much, Some of the homes up for auction still have the foreclosed owner occupying them and it is up to the buyer to oust them.
    Some decent deals to be had on plain land though. We got all the bank books (they are all about 20mm thick) and circled the homes & land we like. we were methodical, we went and viewed the properties, we copied down the listing numbers, addresses and any other pertinent notes on each interesting property. Without exception the bank made an initial bid (as is their right) for the full listed purchase price.

    Finding the property you like and then dealing drirectly with the bank is by far the easiest way to go. Like Thetyim mentione you might have to have a few options with different banks Some the guys running these banks are just plain fuckin dumb. They've been sitting on properties waiting to get their price for ages...

    Absolutely correct Frankie but I did find a way around the bank bidding.

    The fate of the house at auction is in the hands of the auctioneer.
    If the auctioneer is on your side and doesn't tell the bank that he is auctioning the house that day then the bank does not turn up to bid.
    Getting the auctioneer on your side involves the usual donation.

    Would you like me to post a piccy of the first house I bought ?
