Buying a home in Pattaya can at times be a challenging task. Furthermore there can be some risks associated with the purchase of a house or condo here in the land of smiles. Firstly a foreigner cannot legally own land or a house in Thailand. A foreigner can however own a condo. That said there are some ways a foreigner can own a controlling interest in a company that owns a house and land. There are also long term renewable leases from a Thai person or company that a foreigner can obtain.
Condos can be owned by foreigners but there are a few stipulations to consider. For condo ownership by a foreigner to occur there must not be no more than 49 percent ownership in the building or project.
A few tips for you.
Easy to navigate site with good search functions. Has a nice easy to use location map that is very useful if you are looking in a particluar area.
This site seems to operate in the more upscale properties.
This site has been around for a long time. I can't tell if the site is being updated if at all, none of the listings show listing dates. The copyright notice at the bottom shows 2001-2010 so your guess is as good as mine. It is not at all mobile frendly, hard to read on smaller devices. I will more than likely remove it from the list.
This is a Rmax franchise. Landing page has a nice little Remax balloon that enters the page. Landing page also list the most recent properties. Also has a map of listed properties look for the map button upper right corner. I did not find a sort order function.
Huge database of properties at the time of my visit they claim almost 5,000 condos for rent or sale. The site represents many real estate companies and private owners. The database left me lost in a pool of properties that did not pertain to my search query, again no sort order function.
Easy to navigate site, but I couldn't find a sort order function.
Nice website pretty easy to navigate. nice database functions
Great looking site. Not a great deal of listings. Easy to use search but not very robust
Very imposing landing page, I just did not know where to start. Appears to be out dated information.
One of the best landing pages I have seen for the area, attractive but gets right down to business. Easy to use search and to top it off they have a sort function.
A dated looking site, no search function to speak of. Small photos of properties in sideshow format in property details. Can not tell when information is updated
Small site simple to navigate. I like the home page where it has the search function right in the middle of the page.
