    Those sorts of things should do it.
    LOL my present possible deal on buying land if it comes off,I could make 20% on an outlay of 1 million over 3 years, if land not bought back within the time scale i could make possibly 250% profit for doing naff all.

    I don't really care about ownership. Rather, I have recorded over 100 species of butterfly on that piece of land and hope they keep their homes.

    Perhaps because the Thai population is rocketing...

    Cassava price falling, rice price falling, rubber in trouble, government instability but the Baht seems unaffected. I'm confused as to why the Baht is not affected.

    The BKK condo has been rented long-term.

    Not sure they'd be keen on us dropping in.

    The New Year CM gik-tastico was in my CM condo.

    Never planned on renting that out. Was going to use it as a base for when up there bike riding. Friends of friends were interested and took it on a 2 yr contract.


    To be honest I would have expected you to understand that a 8%+ RoI with regards to a condo would mean that they are occupied.

    Obviously dealing with a property buy-for-someone-else guru.



    I'm just juggling you bud. No point clogging up the thread any more. Good luck with it mate.

    Interesting read, skips a few details, like you need a buyers license and you won't get one if not a Thai controlled outfit.
    I have a rubber buying and processing license, limited partnership company with the wife and believe I have total control of the toilets.

    On the land buying front, we [wife] have about 100 rai of rubber, I gave up work 6. 7 years ago and that has paid my retirement, no outside income.
    Have 2 kids, that land will give them an income, if used right for many years to come.

    If you are young enough, have kids and play the long game, Thailand is a good bet.
    Short term, it's a gamble. but pick the right spot and big money can be made, example.
    Tesco/Lotus came to my nearest town, Buntharik, 3 sites picked, rice fields and scrub, land, values nothing.
    Tesco offered 1 mil Baht per rai to the farmers, deal done, want to buy land beside Tesco, you won't get it for 1 mil Baht now, but guess who owns it, Tesco/Lotus.

    Thailand has around $180 billion held in foreign exchange reserves, gold reserves of 152 tonnes and a current account surplus of around 4% of GDP.

    Does that put it on the map for you?

    Also, you, as a foreigner, try taking money out of Thailand without evidence of having brought it in.

    Thailand is an export led economy deriving a high percentage of GDP from manufacturing in a broad based spectrum of products, which diversification helps to minimise external shocks.

    It also helps to have a supine, compliant population quite willing to accept poor standards of social welfare, health and education.

    Off subject, but money related. Woman friend here wants me to get her a farang. Due to her having a few Rai she wants 4 million in Sin Sot, and 80,000 Baht per month for living. She doesn't care what the farang looks like but there's no negotiation regarding the money. They're all fcuking mad IMO. PM me if yer interested.

    Got to be honest mate, I built a house in the village for her and the kids
    I would not sell it but even if we wanted to I would get nothing for it, but the land was cheap and I was green.
    Would I do it again probably not
    Luigi seems to have a good idea of the market but I have bought and sold 2 properties in pattaya and lost money
    I will probably buy some land by my house but not for investment
    I just don't understand the Thai market

    Over the last 10 years or so there have been the occasional plots of land for sale and I always say "Sure, how much profit will it make?"

    Seems to kill the conversation pretty quickly.

    Jimbobs there's money to be made you just have to be very careful, patient and methodical.

    I made a wrong decision a few years ago,though learnt by my mistake,i was after a quick profit.

    Buying homes can be profitable but need to be in the top end market.

    In the lower markets there is a glut of around 600,000 homes on the second hand real estate market in BKK alone.

    I believe there are developers now getting into the market and making modest profits.

    there used to be a member here,think it was Marmite who used to do the same in CM.
