if the O/P takes our tip,  and looks at a second hand houses etc etc , the price tag asked by the owner/real estate agent its a fair bet its up to  one third over  the odds , C/MAI  real estate agents (apart from a select few)are a bunch of  Galahs ,  and thats putting it mildly , E/S  strongly advises the O/P  to look for a private  sale, where  you will find more common ground to secure  a  good buy etc etc 

its a steer clear of real estate agents ,good morning to all

 

Thailand needs a Zillow.com, there's no transparency in the market as it is now. But on the other hand, it wouldn't be suprising if contractors charged farangs one third over the odds for building a house too.

there is no transparency in C/Mai,s property market  due to these so called  R/Estate agents,inflating prices at times,  by four fold, then the peice of property is actually  worth

  and in  dire times  which  are  prevailing right  now, avoid  these parasites and look for a private sale,you will certainlty be first past the winning post in all aspects:smile:, as for building contractors etc etc, at least, if   you are street smart and savvy enuff, you can sucessfully do a build here in C/Mai  without being taken to the cleaners,providing you got the balls to do it,and expect the stray kick in the shins,it just comes  with the  flow here,  a very nice afternoon to all

Follow the old rule of thumb: never pay more than 1M baht for land, which gets you a half rai in the foothills at 5k/tw.  But even that is on the high end for totally undeveloped land. The other rule, if you're interested, is never pay more than 4M baht for a complete house, because the higher the value, the harder it is to resell. I know someone who built a beautiful 20M baht house, custom designed by a famous architect, featured in magazines etc., who decided to move back to the US, and hasn't found a buyer for years. Anyone who can afford it would rather build their own dream house.  Frugality is its own insurance. 

 

If money is tight, consider buying a decent house and renovating it, because new-home construction costs are unpredictable and the process is fraught with headaches and unknowns. With luck, you could do the whole shebang for 2M.

 

Honestly though, I would recommend investing a lot more time in getting to know Chiang Mai before making a commitment. I lived here almost 20 years, was married to my wife for 15, and spoke fluently before taking the plunge.  Even so, some days I have my doubts...

 

And if I were single, I'd probably be perfectly happy staying in the rental market, which is really good value and legally uncomplicated.

 

In any case, good luck and welcome.

Actually I wont spend more than 1000,000 since it is over my budget. If I find anything around Chiang Mai otherwise I will look else where.

I am not going to build any house on the land since it will be on my girlfriend name. I will lease it (30 year)from her and place 2 containers on the lot (my own interior design/not costly though).  I can relocate them in case of any problem (unlikely).

Living in a mobile home?  Very southern USA.  Suggest big shade trees and powerful air con.  At least no hurricanes or tornados here, as far as i know.

yeeeee, you stay in your "LUXERY" room.

 

Actually I am from Southern CA and proud of living in "mobile homes".

We have a good habit too, we don't answer "crap" to people's questions.

Containers could make a nice home, but you would still need plan approval, and by the time you had it all set up, it would likely cost more than the 10,000 PSM you could easily find a resale for.  I had a woman served for having a semitrailer parked beside her house indefinitely.

 

As far as not having sales data...a lot of that stems from people gaming the land office...as common as red light running.  A lot of the agents would be a lot better off if they simply sold houses, instead of acting as a market maker, or trying to make much more than 3%.  However, cutting the Realtor out of the deal, is also a common practice, here, and often easier than getting a cash discount from a merchant.  Multiple listing services and agencies splitting commission s are in their infancy.

When trailer parks are built tornados soon follow.

The Doi Saket area seems to still have reasonable priced land .

If you spend a couple of months looking at land you will be able to find good chanote land at your price although you will need to be perhaps an hour outside of CM.

 

The key point is shopping around and knowing the value of land. My wife bought some land through a village headman type agent and it didn't change the price much at all.

 

I know that I saw a  piece of land in Mae Rim at that price two years ago and I don't think real prices have gone up that much since then?

Go to the Sansai Tessabon office and look on the road nearby and you will see a Container built property not pretty but allowed and tehre...

 

Good luck.

our peice of dirt has risen at least  10% per annum over the last 12 yrs in Beverly Hills Maerim, can assure  you  of that

the  problem  is,  that once you do a build on the land,  that you buy, and combined both price tags,you are doing well to get your money back if you put it on the market to sell

and  as  fellow member Puwa  rightly says over capitalise on  your land/,build  and you will  lose out

land prices  will steadily grow each year, BUT  land /house  prices are presently  are in limbo land,, from my experiences in Maerim District, our property over 12 yrs  is,  we have,nt made a cracker from our initial investment,but have saved  approx 1.5 mil in rent etc etc and luckily received very favourable exchange rates during our build etc etc

the way i see it from a laymans view ,and been through it, if you are not prepared to stay 10 yrs or more on your purchase or build ,you will lose out,,and if you are short term ,  renting is far best route by the proverbial mile,and very advisable, whilst under marshall  law

its a Roger Federer good morning to all

Depends on how far out of CM you want to go, rural areas maybe 30KM out but near good road links are about 300K / Rai, less rural, more in a small town or similar on a main road for Chiang Mai will be nearer 500K / Rai.

Honestly, no offence, but you really don't know Thailand.  Or, guess it depends on your definition of "problem".

But I'll give you credit for "moving mobile".  Wish I could pick up my home and take it back to America.  I'll probably just go and leave it here.  Nothing but problems all around me.

(I'm in Mae Rim.)

I meant if my girlfriend cause any problem. I can not get away from every problem by moving my container home.

I have lived here for 2 years. I'm sure I do not know as much as you.

If your problems are not personal why don't you share ? If you don't mind.

Dog problems were at the top of my list in Hang Dong.  Didn't like their owners, at all.  Condo problems are more manageable.
