Bangkok Property Management

Generally, rates for management of rentals for absentee landlords are 7% of the rent per month, depending on the work to be done and the number of visits to the properties required by the Landlord.

The responsibilities of a Letting Agent will include:

1. Pre-occupation inspection and inventory taking for handing over.

2. Contacting the Landlords or contractors approved by the Landlords for minor repairs.

3. Visiting the tenant quarterly regularly to find out if everything is satisfactory.

4. Banking in cheque payments. Make sure that the cheques don’t bounce.

5. Inspection at termination of lease and a report on work to be done.

6. Look for tenants 2 months before expiry of the lease.

7. To secure a new tenant by contacting all agencies without giving any agency exclusive marketing rights. This is to encourage early closure with all agents. A full one month commission will be paid to the agent who successfully brings a client. Our company does not take a cut to again encourage quick closure.

Hidden Gem Hive by Sansiri – a quality bangkok condo development

I just did a site visit to Hive by Sansiri on Soi 65. It is tucked away in a corner and enjoys good privacy in a peaceful environment. It is surrounded by private residential estates making it very homely.

As you enter the lobby, you are greeted by a classy greenish decor and feel. You can also see the high quality of the materials used in this condo development e.g. the walls, the touchscreen lift panel etc.

Most importantly, i like it for its privacy and quiet surrounding yet convenient access to the BTS Phrakanong.

Strong growth expected for Bangkok condos

Condominium projects in Thailand will continue enjoying the highest growth among other kinds of property projects this year, according to one industry executive.
Samma Kittasin, Director of the Property Data Center, said condominium projects remained very attractive among potential buyers in the first quarter of this year as the number of condominium units whose ownership was already transferred totaled 60,000 units, more than double that of the same quarter last year. He said another 60,000 units are due to start up in the rest of this year.
Actually, many property developers planned to launch their projects in the second quarter, but had to postpone the inauguration due to the recent political turmoil. They are monitoring the economic situation in the third quarter of this year. Should the situation improve and return to normal, they will launch the construction of the 60,000 units in the fourth quarter, he said.
Mr Samma said the information gathered by the center showed the proper projects, particularly condominiums, which gain great popularity among consumers, are located in areas where there are mass transit systems.
Last year, projects, which are of interest among potential purchasers, are located along the Blue Line Bangsue – Tha Phra electricity train route, the Blue Line Hua Lampong – Bangkae route, the Red Line Bangsue – Rangsit route, the Green Line Berling – Rangsit route, and the Green Line Mor Chit – Saphan Mai route.
The number of condominium units sold in 2009 totaled 87,500 and those expected to be sold this year are projected to reach 189,000 units.

Real estate condo market of Bangkok in the aftermath of a red crisis

Bangkok has been recently in the limelight of the world though not for positive reasons. The political situation is still unstable and there is a long way to go before any sense of stability is felt. The Bangkok condo market is still holding up pretty well as developers has reduced the number of project launches and has been catering mainly to the local mass market. Demand for Bangkok condo among the thai affluent market is doing well.
The financial institutions are strong and were not affected by the sub-prime crisis or the problems in Europe more precisely in Greece. Hard lessons were learned during the 1997 financial crisis and financial reforms are bearing its fruits. Credit is thus readily available for prospective home owners to buy a Bangkok condo with loans up to 90% still possible.
The Thailand economy as a whole is doing well with exports sector growing by double digit figures.
Also, the government has announced on the 25th May the extension of reduced property transactional fees to end of June 2010. This applies to all property types such as condos, townhouses and single houses.Transfer fees will remain at 0.01% from its normal rate of 2% and mortgage registration fees will stay at 0.01% instead of the normal 1%.
These reduced fees will only benefit completed property transactions and will not have any effect on developers selling projects off-plan especially in the Bangkok condo market.
Overall, a crash in property crashes is not expected at all amidst recent events that have happened. Property prices have proven to be resilient over the years even during crises.
However, foreign demand for properties such Bangkok condo and resort properties in Thailand, has been dealt a blow. The political crisis has created a perception that the property investment environment in the land of smiles is far from safe. And they are quite right. Combined with the strong thai baht and the weakening of Euros and dollars, foreign buyers are not seen to be flocking to buy thai properties at least in the short term.
On the Bangkok condo launches, Sansiri is launching a luxury condo project called Keyne in prime area of Sukhumvit while AP is planning to launch 20 projects in the year 2010. All is not doom and gloom here in Bangkok, though all is not rosy either, but there is always a good investment out there as long as property buyers do their homework and due diligence.
As they say, when there is blood on the streets, buy real estate. This may sound crude and insensitive but there is much truth in it. While everybody is scared, the seasoned investors are happily looking and buying bargain properties. The Bangkok condo market is full of desperate sellers; the choice is yours to make.

Bangkok Rent Guide

Bangkok Rental Process

The rental process in Bangkok is a straight forward one. The real estate agent represents both the owner and the prospective tenant. The commission however is borne by the home owner only.

To facilitate the agent’s role in the rental process, the prospective tenant will be asked to provide their requirements of the property they are looking for. The common ones that people look for are

  • Proximity to workplace
  • Proximity to children’s school
  • Proximity to public transportation like BTS and subway
  • Type of property
  • Number of bedrooms and floor area
  • Budget

You are encouraged to list as many criteria as possible as this will make the task of finding the right home for you much easier.

Now that the agent has all the information he needs, you will be given a shortlist of properties that best match your preferences. Ample information and pictures will be provided so that you can further refine the list.

The next step is property viewing. Once an appointment is made, the agent will pick you up at a location of your choosing and proceed to view the short listed properties. As you will find out, it is not fun to be stuck in a traffic jam in downtown Bangkok. No amount of good music can soothe the frustration. The viewing time is thus arranged between mid morning and early afternoon. Visiting five properties is considered a productive day. Of course this is not necessary if you fall in love with the first one.

Once you have found the right home, the agent will contact the home owner about your interest and your offer if it differs from the quoted price. If all parties come to an agreement after the negotiation phase, the agent will prepare the lease contract which will be in English. There will be three copies. The owner, tenant and agent will each have a copy.

A contract signing meeting will be set up and the owner will usually be present. This is a good time to make a good impression and build a good relationship with the landlord. Being on good terms with the landlord will make your stay much more enjoyable. The deposit and the advance rent will have to be paid in cash or banker’s check.

Once the contract is signed and everything else is in order all that is left is to collect the keys from your agent and move in to your new home. If you need any further assistance in settling in your new home, you can ask for your agent’s help.

Why Use an agent

An Agent’s Value Add

It is common perception that using an agent involves a fee or a commission. This is indeed true. However in Bangkok, the real estate agent is compensated not by the prospective tenant but the landlord when it comes to residential leasing.

As a house seeker, you will be pleased to know that you do not have to pay a single cent. So besides the fact that there is no cost involved, are there any other good reasons as to why you should use an agent? Or will it be better to go straight to the home owner?

The answer may seem biased but the fact is you should use an agent especially a good one. Firstly, an agent has knowledge of the areas he is specializing in. It will be within his expertise to be familiar with the various property options available for the home seeker. As an individual, unless you have a lot of time on hand, it is wise to rely on the agent’s knowledge and network to find the type of home that suits your needs and requirements. Bangkok is a huge jungle of concrete and property related information in English is not perfect. As an individual, it is indeed not an easy task to find a suitable rental property on your own.

Another good reason is the agent can help you communicate better with the landlord. As you will eventually find out, not all Thais can speak English well. Therefore to avoid any confusion, it is better to let the agent handle the landlord for you. Furthermore, if there is a need for negotiating the rental terms, the agent can leverage on his relationship with the landlords and negotiate on your behalf for a win-win solution. All the parties involved get what they want. This is ultimately what an agent hopes to accomplish and show his value add in the rental process.

Finally, on top of the benefits discussed above, the agent can make the house hunting process a hassle free one. As your potential real estate agent, we will help you every step of the way. We will listen carefully to your housing requirements, show you potentially suitable properties, drive you around to view these nice homes, negotiate on your behalf, prepare the rental contract for your perusal and signing if you are completely satisfied.

Beyond contract signing, we are still very much available if you should need our assistance in any matters regarding your new home. Here at mybangkokhomes, we strive for total customer satisfaction and look for repeat businesses and referrals. We look forward to meeting and helping you find that perfect home away from home.
