Real Estates in Thailand

It is really difficult not to love this place and want to settle here.


For foreign nationals who want to settle in Thailand and make it their home, here are a few guidelines in buying real estate properties in this country.


The most saleable real estate properties in Thailand are condominiums because they are strategically located near places of work such as the central business district of a certain area.


Condominiums are sprouting like mushrooms in Thailand. In Bangkok alone, there are currently more than 55,000 condominium units and the numbers are still growing.


Condominiums are also easier to acquire compared to houses and lands, hence its popularity among expatriates living in Thailand.


Buying a house in Thailand is not easy for foreign nationals but possible. Foreigners cannot own a house in Thailand as an individual and put it under their name, but they can do so through their Thai registered company.


The house will be put under the name and ownership of the said company. The same goes when purchasing a piece of land. It also has to be under the ownership of a Thai registered company.

Another way to buy a house or a land in Thailand is to marry a Thai national. Although they would purchase it as a couple, the property will still be put under the name of the Thai spouse and declared as bought with the separate money of the Thai spouse.


This can be a little tricky though, especially if the marriage does not go well and ends up in a divorce because the declaration also states that the non-Thai spouse waives his claim on the property.
