  • 5 tips on how to deal with property transactions in Phuket

    The real estate market in Phuket is as strong as ever. With such beautiful surroundings and a mighty boom in tourism, many people from overseas are seeking to buy property all around the island. Because of this, many people are also trying to sell property as well, in an effort to take advantage of all the people wishing to buy. Whether you're a buyer or a seller on the island of Phuket, here are some handy tips to help you with your business transactions. 

     

    Tips for sellers

    Going into any type of business transaction, you need to arm yourself with as much information as possible. If you're selling a property, consider how long you've had it, whether it needs repairs and what are its benefits for buyers. When you've gathered as much information as possible about your place, contact a property agent and ask about what similar properties are going for and what the current property climate is like.

     

    Tips for negotiating

    Whether you're a buyer or a seller, getting the best price for a property is the ultimate goal. The best way to do this is to be direct and not get caught  up in any games. When an offer is made, the seller can either accept, reject or make a counter offer. For buyers it's important to offer a reasonable price and for sellers it's important to not be too greedy. 

     

    Negotiating transfer costs

    In Thailand, sellers and buyers usually go halves in the transfer costs but as with all things in the land of smiles, things are flexible. When negotiating things, sellers need to consider all their costs and then factor them into the selling price. Make sure you negotiate all fees before the selling price has been agreed upon, otherwise you might lose the sale. 

     

    Payment options 

    It's important to establish how you'd like to get paid with your agent before you put your property up for sale, as many people prefer to make offshore payments and they need to know how to pay upfront in order to avoid pointless bank and interest charges. A percentage of the purchase price always has to be paid in Thailand to cover transfer and tax fees but negotiations with the seller can sometimes lessen these fees. 

     

    Property Deeds

    Make sure that everything is by the book and the property is in the clear to be sold.

    Make sure the seller's name is the name on the back of the title deed and if the property was set up through a Thai company, make sure that company is clean. Sellers need to ensure that all necessary documentation is provided for the buyer at the time of the sale, so that delays or cancellations don't obstruct the transaction.
