Western style condominiums rentals in Chiang Rai

36 posts in this topic

Chiang Rai is looking better everyday. I consider moving from Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai. During many visits to Chiang Rai, I've never seen any new condo construction, in the city proper.

Do they exist in Chiang Rai? Where are they located for monthly rental between 15,000 and 30,000฿. Does anyone have a recommendation?

There's been a lot of building but I suspect they are designed for local Thais and the rent would be considerably lower than what you have suggested.

As in most cases like this I suggest that you come up for a few days and shop around.

Hopefully you may get something here to work off but you could also google using search terms like Chiang Rai condos, real estate etc.

There seem to be many condo projects right now but could you clarify what you mean by 'city proper'?

There is a pretty decent condo building that was recently built opposite the Central Mall ... a short walk over the bridge and you are there. I recall also a modern development on the left side of the road on the way from central Chiang Rai to the airport. I prefer the one at the Mall ... you are next to all the amenities and you're a five minute drive from the centre of town.

In the vicinity of Central Festival.
 

Central Plaza?, as AlexRich mentioned there is a condo opposite Central Plaza which might interest you.

My information is that they are in the lower price range, still worth checking out though.

 

There were some finished a couple of years back that looked ok, they were just around the corner from the shopping mall that had the old Tops supermarket.

Coming north on the Super Highway turn left at lights at the median strip old city wall and continue on.

I'm curious if anyone knows the typical rental prices quoted for the new condo next to big C?

I've seen a few advertised for around 9000 Baht.

 

They're very small though.

I'm not sure about all of them, but the couple I saw advertised were around 35SQM's.

Asking prices are from 7,500 - 11,000 with the high end price being rental units brokered by management on behalf of the owner.  For D condo I wouldn't pay more than 8,000 baht, unless someone had 2 units renovated into one.

You moved due to your wife's job relocation. I'm moving to Chiang Rai because Chiang Mai is becoming to busy. I'm not a fan of waiting 5 + minutes a major intersections. I'm lived in Chiang Mai 4 years and the population / traffic has doubled.

Sure, Chiang Rai has traffic issues, morning and evening traffic, however, it's a nice and peaceful place.

Apparently, condo rental prices are very reasonable. The lack of adequate parking spaces is a common inconvenience. It's time for new condo projects to allocate parking space for each condo.

I'm grateful for the information. Enjoy your new surroundings. I'm looking forward moving to Chiang Rai. Hopefully the immigration office in Chiang Rai process retirement and 90 day reporting.

It's will be another adventure in Northern Thailand.

Ironic that this topic came up, just moved back to CR 3 weeks ago after 2 years in CM.  Wife's international employer moved their regional office with very little notice so we didn't have much time to look for a house and never found one we liked at our preferred price, so moved into a condo.  

 

Looked at the 3 main ones that have just been built in Muang; D Condo, Like Condo and Q House.  All of D Condo's units are 29 sq M and even though they have the biggest pool & gym and you can use the overhead walkway to Central the size and layout makes the units feel even smaller than they are.  Like has larger units available and a nice salt water pool with gym - viewed a 37 sq M, but the owner wouldn't budge on her 8500 baht price. Went with a unit in the Q house which has several layouts, I believe 29 to 37sq M - salt water pool and gym. Got a great price and very happy with the staff, just the usual Thai Condo problem of not enough parking and Thais with multiple cars leaving their nicest car to occupy a premium spot permanently.

Hi, just checking how you are finding living longer term in the QCondo complex. Have seen it being built on my travels thru CRai. I'm looking to try living again in CRai again simply because the area offers a better  quality of life.

I dislike all those tiny 30sqmetre apartments and willing to pay more for a larger sized apartment.

Cheers,

Michael

Perhaps I scanned this thread too quickly, but I'm wondering why Chiang Rai Condotel on Uttaradit road only a couple meters down from the old main market (the mkt with the small clock tower) hasn't gotten more mention here.

...a couple hundred meters down...

 

Didn't see an "edit" link.

Have no major issues so far, in fact like it more than I thought I would.  The complex is well run and other than the problem of not enough parking space for vehicles, no issues.  Did meet a Thai owner who had a 50+ sq m condo for rent several months ago so if you want a larger unit they do exist.

Without starting a new thread, this one is almost on point.

 

How does it work if you rent long term a condo in a block like the Q Condo or Condotel and the owner is a Thai or foreigner who lives abroad or elsewhere in the country. How do you sort out with immigration the paperwork when they is acting through an agent or does the agent have the authority to go to immigration with you to prove residency?
