Recommended Posts

Yeah. My last rental apartment had roof tile damage from a condo construction next door. I was also constantly clearing up my top balconies from debris that used to fall down....and the side wall facing the building site had concrete splatters all over it... not to mention having to wash my front drive after every concrete pour, because cement drained down in front of my apartment. In hind sight I should have left, but my landlord gave me a rent deduction and I liked the place.

Yes sounds like paradise.

I didn't mention, I used to sleep to music so that the early morning crew wouldn't wake me up. Once the piling was done things settled down. I only good thing about it was I didn't own it.

 

My new place has some empty lots next door too, so you never know when it can happen.

Yes these landowners and developers all know eachother they know exactly what plot to develop first giving residents an short term illusion of great views suddenly 3 years later an new development pops up  right  infront ur building 50 floors etc etc..

we never saw in coming but they did?

Ignorance of people buying.

Add to it those that buy with empty lots around them thinking it is some great open space.

Then, years of construction noise ruining their lives. So sad.

Always rent.  Get a 6 month lease so you can get the hell out if it goes to S...

U lucky-for not buying in The base Pattaya  I believe u rented there? that one going to be blocked heavily by that Sansiri one..

some smart guy bought up all these indian shophouses besides kissfood and miraculously obtained a building permit for an highrise...

Leaving Condo owners Base Pty screwed.

Always rent, so you can move at moments notice, when something like this happens, or some youths move in nearby with their mindless Thai 'rock', or the Thai neighbours turn on you for a whole myriad of reasons.  Just go to one 'just built building', until the problems come [which they will], and then onto the next 'just built building'.  Quick on your toes, and travel light.

Always RENT, <deleted>.!?!?! 

 

I like to have control, being a renter you're at the mercy of the landlord. 

 

I've bought many properties here, you just need to have a brain and do the homework, I've never had a problem.

 

Some people are their own worst enemies, its easy to buy property, what's not easy is buying the right property.

I did a quick calculation

I’ve lived in Pattaya for 14 years, living in the same housing estate

I bought 2 houses, a 4 bedroom and a 3 bedroom

I’d say for me to rent a similar house would be 25000 to 40000 baht per month.

So ill average and say 32500 per month over the 14 years would be 5,460,000 baht

There are many benefits to buying, I feel the biggest benefit being my children have not been relocated unnecessarily due to not being in control.

 

I don’t know about you but I don’t like wasting money.

 

You’re making the landlord rich, well done

 

Again buy smart.

I do as I prefer to be in CONTROL

A good quality high blast fan will also work.

Well, it was only one f****p in 12 years. I like my new place so much I'll take a gamble on construction not starting any time soon.

It is not likely to lead to a great downturn for Thai workers as stated here, as in reality most workers in that industry are Cambodian or Burmese?

He likes to think he's in control, but actually, you have more control renting than owning because it's easy to move.

 

Next, he's going to say he a very smart guy (sorry, he already said that) with an accurate crystal ball and he accounted for all unknown variables.

 

My last landlord is smart and very arrogant. A neighbour from hell moved in and started a laundry, now he can't sell. You can't even keep the windows open due to strong detergent/perfume smells that quickly inundate the house. Tried to get it shut down through the same channels the guy in the OP story tried (city hall) - no dice. A waste of time.

 

Another unknown happened too. The condo they built next door places their garbage bins right next to the carport. When the garbage truck arrives every morning, it sits right in front of the carport for 10 - 15 minutes (a lot of garbage to collect) and that black, foul-smelling garbage effluent seeps from under the truck downhill to a place directly in front of the front gate. What are you going to do about that? All I did was hose it away every morning in addition to sweeping up all the litter left behind from the garbage bins that were emptied..., and then the other neighbours downhill from me complained that I was washing garbage effluent to their houses.

There are pros and cons both for renting and buying simple as that depends on the individual case...Anyway was Thinking u was living in 3 combined units some 25 floors or up?

But i can be mistaken..

No, that wasn't me, but it would be nice to be past the mosquito zone.

Buying here is not "an investment".  If that is ones justification for buying which it often is, they lack total knowledge of "investing" and the real estate market here .

Here, is mostly a slow drip of stagnant nothingness.

You can make so much more money actually "investing" in a true meaningful investment.

 

And, renting gives you total control.

If it got so bad I could walk away from a 20,000 b deposit no problem.

You would have a hard time walking away from that 2 million b condo "investment".
