Is it worth Buying a Condo in Pattaya?
Feb 07, 2023
Is it worth Buying a Condo in Pattaya?The answer to the question ‘Is it worth buying a condo in Pattaya’ depends on several factors, some of which we will look at in this article. The first thing to consider is, do you want to live in it or buy it as an investment? If you hope to live in the property, you need to be sure you like the area and can see yourself living there for x-number of years. If buying as an investment property, you will need to research the area you are looking at and make sure it’s an area that people want to live/invest in. Without further ado, let's have a more in-depth look at what you need to consider when looking for a condo for sale in Pattaya.Location, Location, LocationPattaya is a huge city and growing all the time with developments seemingly going up in every area so there is plenty of choice in all areas of the city. These areas can be broken down into four, namely:Central Pattaya - The epicenter and most developed area of Pattaya which is heavily populated by both tourists and expats with the infrastructure that supports them. An infinite range of shopping, dining and entertainment options as well as the world-famous beach are features that are attractive to expats and tourists alike. There are a wide range of properties in this area which makes it one of the most popular locales to look for condos for sale in Pattaya, Thailand.Jomtien/Jomtien Beach - This is a quieter area that still benefits from a strong infrastructure and a decent beach. Many expats choose to look for a beachfront condo for sale in Jomtien because it’s not as hectic as Central Pattaya but still offers good shopping, clean air, a more sedate entertainment scene and good transport links to the rest of the city.East Pattaya - The property in East Pattaya is generally lower in price and offers somewhat of an ‘in the country’ atmosphere despite being easily accessible to other areas of Pattaya. East Pattaya is often favored by families due to the larger properties at good prices and its proximity to international schools and family-oriented entertainment options.North Pattaya - North Pattaya can generally be considered to be the well-heeled part of the city and boasts high-end, luxurious condo developments as well as great shopping options. Pattaya condo prices in this part of the city tend to be higher than elsewhere but this is generally reflected in the quality and the location of the developments.Try before you Buy If you are serious about finding a condo for sale in Pattaya you will probably be well acquainted with the city already but if not, spend time in the city's different locales and say to yourself, ‘Could I see myself living here’ to come to an informed decision. Do you prefer the hustle and bustle of Central Pattaya, the more laid-back beachside vibe of Jomtien or the relatively quiet East Pattaya? The choice is ultimately yours to make. Getting the Advice you Need The most important thing you need when deciding if it is worth buying a condo in Pattaya is local advice from an experienced real estate company. They will be able to warn you about the potential pitfalls of buying in certain areas and of course keep you updated about local market prices. In our opinion, buying a condo in Pattaya is worth it. The 21st century infrastructure, transport links to other parts of the country, world leading hospitals and schools as well as all the shopping, dining and entertainment options you could ever possibly want are here, and that’s without mentioning the beaches and year round sunshine! These obvious benefits equally apply to any investment property you are considering as well. Regardless of if you're looking for a Pattaya beach condo for sale, a place in East Pattaya or a Jomtien Beach condominium for sale with stunning sea views, the team at Coastal Real Estate are ready and waiting to be your trusted real estate partner in Pattaya. Call us today if you have any questions, need some advice, or would like to view one of our featured condos.
