Buying in Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai is still experiencing a tremendous building boom, with many housing estates and complexes continually being completed. Existing housing stock combined with new developments means that there is a tremendous choice of housing for those wishing to experience life in this laid back city.

There are many different types of properties available in a fantastic range of locations. There are properties to suit all budgets and household sizes. Traditional Thai houses, town houses, bungalows, shop houses, luxury properties and modern homes can all be found on the real estate market, along with apartments, condos and commercial buildings.

Homes come with different features and facilities; whether a person wants a home ready to move into, or a bare canvass in which to craft their ideal home, there is something for everyone. Some homes will be tastefully decorated whereas others will need a little TLC and so provide the perfect project for someone wishing to completely redesign the interior of their dream home. With labour relatively inexpensive in Thailand, having changes made to a home will be completely feasible. For example, kitchens can be easily fitted if a great home does not have the required kitchen type, air conditioning is easily installed, bathrooms can be changed, and any other jobs can be done that would turn a great home into a fantastic home. A major benefit of owning a property is that the owner can make any changes that they wish. The low cost of real estate coupled with the low cost of materials and labour makes this a great way to play a part in creating the perfect home in the perfect place. Of course, there is, however, an abundance of fantastic properties that most people would want exactly how they are.

Chiang Mai is a popular city in which to live, due to the overall atmosphere, the beautiful surrounding scenery, the thriving expat community, the great range of facilities and amenities, the cultural charms, work opportunities and the array of leisure activities easily available. Chiang Mai enjoys a warm, pleasant climate which is cooler than many other Thai cities. It also benefits from an excellent infrastructure and transport links.
