Do you need a Realtor?
The answer to this question really comes down to your preference. Some buyers would never think of purchasing property in Thailand with the help of a realtor while other buyers prefer to go it alone. Both buyers are looking for the steps to safely acquire property in Thailand.
More than 90% of all property buyers start their search online. This allows the chance to become familiar with the general prices of the area they are targeting and to get a feel for whats on the market. Typically this is the first step of gathering information that they will use to determine if this is the right investment for them.
How much does a Realtor charge?
It needs to be said that Realtors in Thailand do not charge a commission to buyers. Their services are free of charge. Their fee is paid by the seller.
Types of property in Thailand
Pricing of property in Thailand is naturally more expensive the closer you get to the beach and less expensive in an inland rural area. Phuket real estate offers choices of homes, townhomes, villas, condominiums, and apartments for sale. These include "off-plan" (preconstruction), under construction, completed and resale properties.
