What an ignorant response. Do you think that all old people (what age is old exactly?) should all be living in nursing homes?

No, but everyone should be aware that after the age of 70 they are increasingly likely to lose their marbles and get sick and die, or any mixture of the three.

 

I've still got my smarts and I can stand on one leg without falling over, but I doubt that both will be true in 10 years time. So at the age of 70 I expect I would be giving more consideration to finding a nice nursing home than to finding a nice condo to buy.

At that age I would not be buying anything. It would just make winding up your estate a mess for those who inherit it. 

not at all--my family or friends could stay in the condos--im not getting too 'carreid away 'about buying in vietnam..even with mid range condo it pattaya, its still not a lot of money involved...i may even leave to thai girl.

im not planning on dying for at least 2 decades after age 72---

ive taught my family not to expect inheritance --they have to work hard and invest well, to create their OWN  wealth-- in early 30s son and one daughter--have already done that....

sad realy---i expect to have many many more good years after that..if i get a bit decrepid, i can pay a qualified live-i n nurse, to care for me--- or if too bad ..my family claim they will 'drag' me back to nz....

my family on fathers side-all live-well into their 90s...

no way---not me mate.. i even have a beautiful 21 yr old girlfriend, plus other long time, very close,  lady friends{im a butterfly}.

i dont have to buy houses for them, give them huge amounts of money ,or get married--

we just enjoy life together, lots of travel etc..

i spent too many years working my 

guts out'--now---im living it up, increasingly so, over next 10yrs{as my investment income increases.}

my only "fear', is dementia-at moment, no problems....

my fathers sister in nz -excellent health and very alert, still driving at 92yrs old---

Not sure why you'd tie up cash by buying a place either in Thailand or in Vietnam.  I'm 73 and calculated the break-even between cash for a condo and rent.  Breakeven exceeded my life expectancy by a bunch.  Makes sense to buy a place if you're younger, but even then, without financing available (and no tax benefit even if it were), the cash outlay, transaction cost and maintenance exposure make it a little dicey.  Given the ever-changing Immigration rules, "cash is king" seems to make sense - conserve it.

 

 Fyi , over 70, no pockets in shrouds , cash is not king . not cost efficent ..

  I recently bought a house for a good thai lady , I have known for quite a few years.

    That said, if i was younger more , i would choose Vietnam for retirement..

I certainly wouldn't consider living there, too quiet, too small. Great for a weekend break from HCMC.

All my pals ended up in Phnom Penh, which fits your proposed needs much better, and a very easy 1 year VISA..

My second choice would be Barretto, Olongapo, which has a nice beach, and also easy VISA.

 

Vietnam at the moment could only ever be a holiday destination for me.

yeah thanks, thats why pattaya is great--its lively, plenty to do..

i will look up Barretto---i dont like anything about cambodia, even sihanoukville--too filthy, far dirtier than thailand...

The riverfront area and promenade near bar street in PP was much cleaner than Pattaya.

I had a very nice morning walk along the jogging track every morning.

Plenty of expats (aged 50-70) to hang out with in the evenings.

We would meet up at 4pm then bar hop the 75c beer bars until we dropped.

 

If you were going to PP, I could put you in touch with them.

i get your point---once again , my family may get get something, but they already know how to create their own wealth..its appreciated more that way..if i get lots of pleasure from thai girl, over longer period, whats wrong with taking care of her when i pass on...im soon setting up a charitable trust in nz , to donate to sick kids--thats where most of my assets will go...

in the meantime, i concentrate on keeping healthy, travel and lots of fun with thai girls..

im not interested in thinking about rest homes and what happens when i die---thats too morbit...maybe in my late 80s, i will...

think positive guys.....
