Koh Samui Real Estate Guide
Once you’ve chosen whether you should rent or whether you should buy property in Koh Samui, then the only thing left to do is to decide how to pursue your dream.
Now, it may seem nerve-racking, but buying and renting on this beautiful island is actually a lot easier than you would imagine it to be.
Whether you are renting on a short-term or a long-term basis, one option to consider is the hoard of the fabulous holiday homes which are usually only used on a daily/weekly rental basis for vacations.
Because of Koh Samui’s steady and booming tourist industry, there will be a vast amount of holiday homes to look at in regards to rental options. You may choose to look at the romantic Bophut, or the roaring Chaweng, the idealistic Lamai, or the blissful Choeng Mon. All are awash with stunning holiday homes/privately owned homes that are available to rent.
The convenience of this choice is that the houses/apartments are mostly already fully furnished with furniture (couches, tables, beds, cookers, fridges etc) Additionally; most of these places are also equipped with kitchen appliances (pots, pans, kettle etc). So if you’re renting for, say, between 1-month and 6-months, this may be a great option for you.
There are lots more options for renting on this pristine island just off of Thailand, however. If you don’t want to buy but you still want a place that feels a bit more like home to you, then Koh Samui offers a host of housing that ranges from grand to compact, from luxurious to more humble dwellings. There is something for everyone, no matter what your budget.
It’s worth noting that long-term leases can also come unfurnished. The benefit in this is that you can tailor it to your own tastes.
If you wanted something a tad more permanent as an alternative to renting, then you might want to consider buying your property in Koh Samui. We have the experience and knowledge to ensure that your journey as a house-buyer is as smoother ride as possible!
Although (due to a growing rise in popularity) property prices on the Koh Samui have risen somewhat in recent years, there are many ways to negotiate costs on some of the pricier places. We advise to get to know the local market as well as you can first. This isn’t such a bad thing as it means that you will have to visit the beautiful island a few times to educate yourself!
As well as the obvious advantages affiliated with owing your own property, the extra edge that Samui offers is the scorching temperature, the peaceful landscapes and the booming nightlife. These unique attributes add to the ever-growing tourists that flock here all year round. With so much opportunity to rent your own property out and to be a landlord yourself, then the reasons for not buying on this pristine Island are very few and far between!
