Thailand welcomes more than 10 million tourists a year and Phuket is one of the most popular destinations in the kingdom. The demand for property on the island is high, which makes it a sound investment, and more and more visitors and residents are choosing the island every year. People over the age of 55 are permitted to retire here; others can spend up to 60 days at a time on tourist visas or arrange longer non-immigration visas.
Phuket boasts a very sophisticated tourist infrastructure as well as a host of amenities to suit foreign residents. The property choices are also wide, from villas and houses to condominiums and even commercial properties, and this is supported by excellent services for maintenance, management, leasing, building and renovating, with a wide selection of affordable and tasteful materials.
Although foreigners a not allowed, by Thai law, to own land, there are many other structures for quasi-ownership, including condo buildings 49 per cent foreign owned, legitimate company ownership and long term leases which are all commonly used in the Phuket real estate industry. There are properties to suit a range of budgets, both close to the seafront or away from the crowded spots in lovely hinterland locations, and as real estate specialists in Phuket, we can help you find an ideal property.
