Suggestions & help for preparing to move to Thailand in 1 year

Recommended Posts

Hello good people living in Thailand already. I am ready to make Thailand my semi-retirement home.  Thinking within 1 year from now, January 2020.  I would like help for guidance for finding good realtor, health insurance, attorney for property transfer buying & purchasing land and also a good primary doctor. 

I am thinking to live somewhere near Hua Hin, Prachup Khiri Khan area. My interest are farming & teaching. I love Thailand, and want to come here help in my retirement age. Thank you for your input.

Well unless you are a Thai national you cannot buy land.

Makes sure of your reporting requirements 

Try to learn someThai language and script 

Make sure you have health insurance before arriving

Make sure about Opening  Thai bank account

Thank you, RJR. I am a Thai citizen. I just got it last year after have gone moved to America with my mother & step-dad over 40+years ago. I was born in Thailand.  Now, I am ready to move back to give back what I can. I do have some Thai cousins, but they do not have farang experience dealing with moving to Thailand. I just wanted to be prepared.

Thanks alot, NCC.

Not a lot of money.  Retired military, too young to stop working.  Hoping to find a small piece of land for farming. Slowing down a bit.

If you can speak and write Thai I would be less inclined to use a realtor or lawyer. There are plenty of small farms for sale to the Thai market, but no so much to the Farang market. Using a realtor will up the price as will using a lawyer if it is a straightforward land sale. Obviously the further inland you move in the Hua Hin area, the cheaper it gets.

Hello Aquaman2016, Thank you for your input. I can only read & write Thai 6th grade, maybe.  When it comes to real estate or legal matters, I'd rather pay now than later. If you know what I mean?  I am too old to for the legal head ache. I've been there & done that.

Thank you Grollies,

I don't know quite yet about the farm, but I was born in Saraburi, a rice farmer family. I don't want to farm for profit, but personal use & maybe have enough to share.

if ur thai, forget the realtor option.

land where ur talking about is NOT CHEAP
if ur considering farming head back home,(Saraburi) and ask around with ur relatives.   They will find you a much better deal

If ur thai u can get the 30 baht medical card

 

Are you moving alone or do u have a SO?

Hello Phuketrichard,

Thank you for you helpful advice. I appreciate it.

Saraburi was my birth place, but I like Hua Hin area better.  However, like other's advisor said, I should rent for a bit before I buy & that is what I intended to do.

 

I don't plan to do a big farming to make income, but more for hobby & maybe give away to the locals families.  There are going to be 2 of us & maybe more moving with me.   

Thanks again,

Jimlim
