Perhaps, making a deal in your own country, you can do without it. All negotiations and documentation are in the native language, the market is familiar, the laws are clear, the geography is familiar, and any issue can be resolved by personal presence. However, when choosing a property in another country, it would be nice to enlist the support of an experienced agent. In Thailand, the services of an agent are free, in addition, an experienced agent will save you a lot of money! Let’s see why you need an agent and what you can save on.
Determination of purchase goals, selection of criteria
Before choosing a property, you need to understand “why do you need this?” Determine the tasks to be solved. This will help you avoid unrealistic expectations and disappointments by buying the wrong thing.
There are 3 main tasks that buying real estate can solve: generating income, vacationing several times a year and periodically renting out, buying a home for permanent residence.
In detail, we analyze the purpose of acquiring real estate in Phuket in this video:
If you have any doubts, an experienced agent will always help you decide on the purpose of the purchase and draw up an investment strategy, which will save you time and money.
When we have decided which tasks we want to solve and have built a strategy, we can proceed to the selection of objects. It will take a lot of time to collect information about the main developers and, moreover, to find contacts of owners who want to sell real estate. You can, of course, “surf the Internet”, rent a car and go around the main objects, spending the whole vacation. Our agency has been collecting information about developers and owners since 2009. We will ask you a few questions to understand the criteria for choosing an object and offer only those that may be of interest. Our task is to choose several suitable options for viewing and take you there in comfortable cars. Of course, at our expense! So you save on car rental and gasoline.
We are constantly in contact with sellers and know their discount policy and special offers. For 10 years of work, we have become dear to developers and therefore they offer our customers special conditions: discounts, installments, furniture as a gift, etc. They do not announce all the information, but we know something ..
Often the client thinks that the discount is the most important thing. But it is not always the case. Sometimes it is much more profitable to agree on an increased installment plan, furniture as a gift, or a higher percentage of guaranteed income.
For example, instead of a 3-5% discount, you can get furniture as a gift, which can cost 10-15% of the apartment price. And an increased interest-free installment plan will allow you to pay for an apartment from rental income.
Working with a contract
When buying a property, it is always very important to study the contract. After all, it spells out your rights, as well as the obligations of the seller. Especially if you buy an object at the construction stage. Contracts with large developers are often standard, and have been tested by us and our clients many times. Therefore, we know which points in them you need to pay attention to. Contact competent agents and this will allow you to save money on the work of a lawyer, as well as in possible disputes with the seller.
Control over the transaction and construction process
Before the next payment for the object at the construction stage, you need to make sure that the complex is being built according to the schedule. We go to the sites and show you the construction process on video. Before registering an object, we accept it on your behalf. Be sure – we will not accept the object until even the smallest flaws are eliminated. So you save time and money on a flight to Thailand and living here.
We advise considering the possibility of resale, regardless of the main purpose of the purchase. Not every property can be quickly and profitably resold in the future.

We choose the most liquid objects, as in the future, if necessary, we can resell them
Therefore, with an experienced agent, you will buy something that you can resell easily and expensively in the future.
Each transaction lasts from several months to several years. During this time, we become a well-coordinated team. And, of course, our relationship will not end after the registration of the object. We help clients in solving many issues, not only domestic, but also tax, legal, visa. In addition, our company has a special loyalty program for each client, but we will talk about this in one of the next issues.
Summing up, I want to say – to save money on buying property in Thailand, contact a professional agent. Moreover, its services are free for you!
