What to Look for in Apartments for Sale in Pattaya

Posted by Shaun Tracy on May 11th, 2016

Pattaya is one of the best places to visit in Thailand. It is less crowded than Bangkok and is a good jumping off point for visiting different islands. The city also boasts wonderful beaches and an energetic nightlife. Some of the sites to visit in Pattaya include the Pattaya Park Tower, Nong Nooch Tropical Botanical Garden, and the Sanctuary of Truth. If you are looking to invest or even stay and retire in Pattaya, it’s best to look for an apartment that you can rent out when you are not using it. Here are some things to look for when buying an apartment in Pattaya:

•    Good location – Pattaya still has its busy streets so you want to stay in a location that is peaceful, preferably away from the center. But at the same time, you want the apartment to be close to important locations, such as the main highway that leads to Bangkok, golf courses, horse stables, clubs, and beaches.

•    Security – Pattaya is fairly safe but it is best to get a secure apartment nonetheless. Some apartments are situated within a gated village with 24-hour security. Ask the developer if the apartments have sensors and other security equipment.

•    Complete facilities – Don’t settle for apartments that have small bedrooms and living areas. Real apartments should have large living and lounging areas and even fully-equipped kitchens.

•    Reasonable price – Shop around for apartments for sale in Pattaya so you can get a better idea of how many properties go for in this Thai city. If you are looking to re-sell the Pattaya apartment, you can also inquire about the average return on investment.

•    Amenities – Choose an apartment within a village or community that comes with excellent amenities. The most basic amenity should be a swimming pool. Some communities even have more than one pool and offer play areas and wonderful gardens.

•    Space – Sadly, some apartments offered in Thailand are built too close to each other. Make sure that the apartments have ample spaces in between. The community should have large and safe roads, too.

•    Quality – A Pattaya apartment is an investment. If you want to get your money’s worth, make sure to get a high-quality apartment whose value will appreciate.

•    Good neighbors – What’s the use of living in a wonderful apartment in Pattaya if right next door is unsightly shanties? Be sure to buy an apartment that is located within a community of like-minded people—expats like yourself, as well as foreigners who enjoy having a holiday home in Thailand.
