    Land Valuation in Korat

    The wife just inherited 2 rai in Korat in the city (within a km or so of Tesco)- the most similar piece of land I could find a valuation for is a couple of years old, and showed 45K per talang wah- does anyone local have an idea of what land there is going for now? It's right on the main road and in a pretty nice spot (so I've been told, at any rate).

    I'll probably be making a trip up there in a month or two to check it out.
    There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

    I did see that forum, but I'm not joining it at this point- if anybody here knows, that would be great- I've been doing a bit more research (with a Thai assistant so I can check out the sites aimed at locals rather than expats) and it looks like 50K-60K is in the ballpark for land with commercial value in the city.

    Whatever it's worth it's got to go on the back-burner as I have other stuff going on, but it was a nice piece of good news today (though we will miss the woman who originally owned it).

    Ask at the land office is the easiest, have to pay tax on purchase price.

    Or you could ask at KoratFart.com - Nakhon Ratchasima and Isaan Forum for Art, News & Culture - Index

    The land office assessment is ~14mil for the plot (any taxes/fees are coming out of the estate at any rate), but their valuations aren't always in accord with reality- I just wondered if any locals might have an idea- I know a bit about Bangkok, Samui, Ratchaburi, and Chiang Mai, but not Korat.

    No offense to the folks registered on either of the other sites mentioned, but I have a feeling that higher-end land is not their area of expertise...

    Sounds about right if a little on the low side..prime piece of land in a fast developing city..not a bad little inheritance that.

    Yeah, it's a nice piece of security.

    There is a 100-day gap between the passing and the reading of the will (it's a Chinese thing, apparently- they're Thai-Chinese)- we had really forgotten about it- it was a very nice thing for her to do.

    The previous generation (my wife's parents, aunts, and uncles) got the real prime stuff- nice plots in BKK that are worth a fortune (not that I'm complaining...)- they're all fairly well off and will just hang onto it, perhaps leasing it out or building on it- we'll probably do the same (it's just that I know absolutely nothing of Korat, and will have to spend some time learning the area, and it will be a while before I can work that out).
