trying to buy a condo under 1000000

Recommended Posts

Aside from rent vs own - what about living with such chavs and low budget prosti's in the vertical ghetto? Noise, crime, drugs.

 

At least no ABnB!!

As if spending a buttload of money guarantees you good neighbors and excellent living conditions...

only baan suan lalana alwaays the cheapest.....it is in weird location too

I rented at Baan Suan Lalana for 7000 baht/month.  Spacious rooms with balconies. But I would never buy there. Location is okay if you prefer Jomtien over Pattaya. For me it was a short bicycle ride to most areas.

I wouldn't call it weird at all, they built the complex around a nice tropical park and 2 swimming pools. It was nice to wake up in the morning and hear birds singing outside, you didn't feel you were living close to a city.  
But of course it's an old complex built in the 90's, but they do maintain it very well. Some of the rooms are worse than others, you just need to look around.
But buying was never an option.

I did the biggest mistake where I passed a crazy offer 7 years ago for a 46 sq, m appartment for 750000..

If that's the biggest mistake you did ... missed an apartment in Pattaya for 750k

 

What about Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Apple etc. 7 years ago ... and look at the stock price today! 😉

 

You could buy super condo's today in Patt's if you wanted, larger than 40sqm 😉

 Haha, think Nana Hotel and the old guys who live there!

I make a point of staying at Nana for at least one night when I am in Bangkok (without the wife!). I really like the place, just walking outside makes me feel alive, Soi 4 is usually always buzzing. True, at breakfast you can see some sad sights.

too late to edit my original post.

I make a point of staying at Nana for at least one night when I am in Bangkok (without the wife!). I've stayed in 4 and 5 star hotels as well and in my opinion the newly refurbished rooms at Nana are quite acceptable. I really like the place, just walking outside makes me feel alive, Soi 4 is usually always buzzing.  Really funny sharing the lift with some young or old bloke who is drunk as a skunk trying to tell his newly found teeraak where his room is when blind freddy can tell the she is a he ladyboy. True, at breakfast you can see some sad sights.

Put it on your bucket list.

Yeh, nice to have a bottle of wine at night when all you can hear is the waves crashing on the rocks and feel the ocean breeze.  🍸

I totally agree. People who need more space cannot be very smart in my opinion. And it's not about money, I drive a 6MB car.

 

 

Now that is not very smart, in my opinion. But each to their own. A 6MB condo is likely to have a better return.

Nana Hotel worthy of a thread of its own! Someone should write a book. I stayed there many times over late ‘90s - early 00s, when the bar was still there, and got to know a couple of the oldtimers who lived there. They stayed after the Vietnam war. I was told that Viagra killed most of them, as their hearts burst (in more ways than one!). Stayed another night in 2016 but that vibe was gone. B1500/night, all rooms smoking, front desk staff still there.
