Updated: Jul 26, 2020

Location and area.

Since Bangkok has incredible traffic hours it's an important aspect to consider your new home near one of the mass transit stations such as BTS Sky train or MRT Metro.

The majority of the people commute to work using one of these two types of public transport to avoid the car congested morning and evening streets of the city.

For that reason a walk-able distance from your condo to any one of the nearby BTS/MRT stations is a crucial point think of.

Luckily the majority of the new off plan projects aims to fulfill this important matter.

Who is the Project Developer?

The real estate market in Bangkok is home to many developers. Purchasing a condo designed by high sought after developers can therefore be a point to reflect on.

Some developers are very popular and have won many awards in different fields, so their condo's are of high end quality and give you a better chance for personal satisfaction as well as good options for investment.

In case you are looking to purchase a condo as a form of investment then there is an attractive option called a 'rental guarantee', something which you should certainly take a look at.

Many developers offer this 'rental guarantee' which is basically an agreement between the developer and an investor offering a fixed percentage of income to the investor for a set period of time.

In other words as an investor you are buying a property from which you know will give you yield for the anticipated future, a deal which is highly appealing and for that reason it is clear to see why so many investors move forward in this direction.

Popular projects that offer this deal are FYNN ASOKE and LEVEL CONDO BANGNA.
