In relaxed, welcoming, liberal Chiang Mai
But, just why do people like Chiang Mai (and its real estate market)?
For a start, Chiang Mai, Thailand’s northern capital, has everything that a much bigger city has.
We have an international airport, our famous night markets, numerous shopping centres, a host of recreational and leisure activities—happening both day and night. Then there are the renowned, internationally known Hospitals and Universities—plus, of course, everywhere else is just so accessible—Hong Kong, Singapore or Taiwan, or really wherever you want to go.
The lifestyle is relaxed yet the city busy enough to enable many residents to work from Chiang Mai, even if they have businesses elsewhere—and, especially with APEC just around the corner and a myriad of improvements to communications between Chiang Mai and the ASEAN region, this can only get better.
Yet, maybe best of all, condominium and house prices are still affordable—or, should it be said, for many purchasers from elsewhere in Asia, cheap! It’s possible to rent a house or generously sized condo for between US$500-1,000 per month or buy a home in the US$100,000-200,000 range. In fact, with judicious selection, it’s possible to get a lot of property for these sorts of figures!
For those purchasers eligible to buy land and wishing build a luxury house of around 250-300m2, it’s still possible—with a variety of lovely plots with mountain, rice field or water views—for an outgoing of between US$300,000-500,000—a price range which will buy you very, very little in many of the seriously expensive property markets elsewhere in the region!
On balance, it’s well worth to check out Chiang Mai city and its real estate market—indeed, savvy investors and those looking for a better lifestyle than that which can be obtained in other Asian cities are already getting well established here!
