Hello From Mr. Roomfinder Dot Com

Recommended Posts

I love mrroomfinder.com!

I was introduced through ajarn.com and I have found a few Apts that I am going to check out once I nail a job. Have you considered doing a more in depth search for ammenities? I would like to be able to cross reference price ranges with apartments that have ammenities that I like, such as hot water and A/C. I know they are listed in each Apt but if it could be used as a search criteria it would be much more efficient I think.

Thanks for your post and kind words Lilred510.

Mr. Roomfinder will only get better as time goes by as more features are added to the site. We will gradually get more apartments and condos with pictures too.

Your question about an in depth search for amenities is not an uncommon one and I'll personally make sure it's integrated at a later date. For now though, we need to increase the number of properties in the database so that there will be results or near matched results for a detailed search.

There are many updates going on at the moment and this was not considered a priority at this time, but will most probably be included in the next batch of site enhancements.

Just for the record, a lot of places above 5,000 THB/Mo. should have A/C and hot water (shower only) as standard, but there are still a number that don't. I think it's fair to say these features are the norm in places above 8,000 THB/Mo.

Cheers Lilred510

[That's it for now. We hope you enjoy the site and will contribute to its development.

Hi,

I am looking for something in the Sukhumwit area but that does not seem to be a district. I can't figure out how the area maps relate to Sukhumwit.

How do I specify Sukhumwit?

Thanks

Hi Thailandvisitor.

I guess it can be a little difficult if you're doing a remote search. Anyway, that's why we’re here!

Ok, Sukhumvit Road is a very, very long road so prices and available accommodation can vary enormously. I'm guessing you probably want to stay along the central Sukhumvit road with easy access to the Sky train and BTS. Am I right?

If this is the case, the best search you can do is a Search by BTS/MRTA Sukhumvit line.

1. First go here: http://mrroomfinder.com/search.php?opt=bts

2. Next Put a tick in the check box for BTS (Sukhumvit Line) and click the 'Next' button.

3. The next page will allow you to break down your search by Price/Bedrooms/and apartment type if you want to.

4. Click the 'View Results Now' button to list the properties.

If you want to see what's available in the central area of Bkk simply do a Search by Map: http://mrroomfinder.com/search.php?opt=map

There will also be properties around the 'Sukhumvit Area' here but either the landlord failed to put the nearest BTS station in his ad or the train services are not so nearby.

1. Click on Zone 2

2. Click the ‘Search’ button on the next page.

3. Follow steps 3 & 4 as above.

Hope that helps.

All the best.

Aitch

Hi Make.

If you make a contract you are basically bound to the terms and conditions of that contract so it’s important to agree with its contents prior to signing anything.

It may be easier to change apartments under the same contract if it’s another apartment within the same building or group but once again check the contract first.

Agencies work on behalf of their clients (the landlords) and simply act as a go between. This means it is not usually their contract so they have no power to move you around under its terms and conditions.

If you stay in an apartment building as opposed to a private condo, it is usually possible to stay on a month to month basis which means you can come and go as you please within reason. Of course, if you are not sure where you want to be it’s recommended that you do exactly this and only sign up for a mid to long term lease when you’re certain where you want to be.

I suggest you search this forum or start a new post for advice on places that rent rooms on a month to month agreement.

Hope that helps a bit.

Aitch

Thanks Mr. Roomfinder. I used your site and services to display my apartment for rent. The site is very easy to use and load pictures onto. I got several relies within a day or two and now it is rented out. Best of all is that it was free!

Cheers, Mbk :o

Hello everyone.

My name is Aitch (AKA Mr. Roomfinder!) and I'm the webmaster of the all new site MrRoomfinder dot com. We've just partnered with Thaivisa to create this new forum which I hope will be of benefit to us all.

For those of you who don't know the site, Mr. Roomfinder is a free information service with a primary purpose to help the home hunters of greater Bangkok find that perfect pad. There are also plans to add a national database soon but this will obviously take a bit of time before we get any real listings in there.

Mr. Roomfinder has hundreds of actual contact telephone numbers and address details with every single submitted property. We're not real estate agents so there's no need to go through us, mention us, or slip us a drink in order to arrange a viewing. Just log on, look around, take what you want and leave the rest. That's it!

Although the site has ambition to list all property types from the cheapest of the cheap to the most costly penthouses, there is always going to be a focus on the low to mid range properties as it's an area many people feel is neglected.

Also for consideration at a later date, is a plan to build some kind of 'members rated' list of properties and tie a search facility into that.

We've attempted to cover as many points as possible in the construction of MrRoomfinder, but obviously there are some areas that would have been overlooked, so just bear with us as we persist with continual progress.

We're dedicated to updating and improving the site periodically, and most of these changes and amendments will be on the recommendation of the site's members, so user feedback is essential to the future success of the site. All updates and or amendments to the site will be posted to this forum as and when they occur.

Obviously it's not possible to implement every good idea that is made by an individual member but all suggestions will definitely be reviewed for consideration and all mail will be answered. You can either contact me via the site or through this forum, as I expect to visit here daily.

Don't forget, in addition to the apartment lists we also have an impressive search facility, articles on housing issues, online interactive polls and other bits and bobs aimed at keeping the site interesting.

That's it for now. We hope you enjoy the site and will contribute to its development.

Thanks for reading

Hi folks. I only popped in here as I had an email returned as undeliverable which was sent from a member of Thaivisa.

Anyway, I’ve come over to see if I could find the sender of the message so I could respond. This was when saw these recent posts and was actually surprised to still find this thread pinned at the top of the forum.

Where is Mr. Roomfinder?

Firstly, let me apologize for disappearing overnight all those months ago. I got an email from the webmaster of Thaivisa.com saying he didn’t think the arrangement was working for the good of Thaivisa. Consequently, my moderator status was terminated from the forum forthwith and I left the rooms immediately as requested. However, I do still provide a link to this forum on my site for the convenience of the home seekers of Thailand.

I would have thought that the webmaster or a senior moderator would have pinned an announcement about the disassociation, but obviously this was not done, which probably accounts for the occasional mail I still get from Thaivisa members.

I am arriving Bangkok in august, and would like to look at some apartments. Unfortunately, I cannot get messages through to u from your web site. It simply doesn’t work. Do you have an e-mail adress or a physical adress through which i could reach you?

I get mails daily, well almost, directly from the site creation2474. Have you checked your email address is correct when sending as I often reply to emails that get retuned as the address is not recognized! Here’s the link Contact the Site I’ve literally just sent a test mail from this form and it appears to be working fine. If you had problems sending from here, there may have been a brief technical hitch, server side. Who knows!

If your new moderator sees this post, he or she may want to delete it as it could be confusing for some members thinking they have an invisible Mr. Roomfinder as a non-moderator and non-provider of recent vacancies around the city.

Finally, just to clarify, Mr. Roomfinder is not a Real Estate Agent or Letting Agency of any description, it never has been, so I don’t have any direct dealings with Landlords or tenants.

I’ve simply created a free information website for the home hunters of Thailand. The site has been set up so that users can quickly search the database for apartment buildings, condominium vacancies, and other property related items.

I do understand folks wanting a few recommendations prior to viewing or moving into a particular place, and especially if they’re searching remotely, which is why it’s always a good idea for home hunters to ask around the forums for recommendations on potential properties prior to making a commitment.

I may reopen the Roomfinder forum at a later date but to be honest, I’m too busy with other web projects at the moment so haven’t really got the time to moderate it. However, there are new vacancies added around the greater Bkk area almost daily nowadays, so the site goes on to be a valuable resource for tenants, landlords, and agencies as it continues to grow in traffic and popularity over the months and years ahead.

Best regards

Aitch :o
