Thailand’s Biggest Property Exhibition Opens in Pattaya
Following their rapid growth during 2013, A+ Property Sales and Rentals have now opened the largest permanent property exhibition centre in Thailand. Located on Sukhumvit Road, Pattaya between Underwater World and Tesco Lotus, this is truly a one-stop shop for all your property requirements.
A+ is a British and Scandinavian owned company with its Head Office in the new One Patio Plaza on Pattaya Second Road next to Tiffany’s Night Club and behind the new Burger King. Now with a staff of 17 who collectively speak many different languages, their modern, professional approach to the local property market is a breath of fresh air.
There are more than 20 of the top local developers exhibiting at the centre offering a wide range of properties at many different locations. Also on display they have an extensive selection of resale properties from million baht condos to luxury seven bedroom villas fetching 50m baht and more. If you’re looking to buy a business or some land, then look no further as they have that too.
There is also a good choice of properties for rent for long and short term ranging from studios at 10,000 baht/month to luxury homes with their own private swimming pool. Covering the area from Wongamat/Naklua in the north right down to Na Jomtien in the south, they are likely to have the right property at the right price for even the most discerning renter.
The developers on show include Powerhouse, Global Top, Heights Holdings, Orion, The Dusit Group, Elegance, Nordic Group, 1-Tower, Golden View, Club Quarters, The Vineyard, Amaya Hill, Tudor Developments and The Cube to name but a few. You can get full information on all of the different projects as well as viewing most of the properties on dvd.
Why run around all over the city to find what you are looking for when they probably have it here all under one roof. You will also find some favourable prices and payment terms on offer which are not available direct from the developer or via other brokers.
The Ten Owners Club
A+ is also launching a very exciting shared ownership project in early December which will open up a new opportunity for both the regular visitor to Pattaya who either can’t afford or prefers not to purchase his own property, as well as those looking for a solid investment.
This concept, commonly called fractional ownership these days, is often confused with timeshare purely because each property has several owners, but that really is where the similarity ends. The A+ scheme offers 10% shares in the property (hence the name) where each owner is entitled to use the property for five weeks every year.
An owner can buy up to four shares if he wishes and enjoy 20 weeks use of the property annually for ten years. Then, after ten years the property is sold and each owner receives 10% of the sale proceeds for each share that he owns. This eliminates the worry that many people have that they will not be able to sell on their share when they decide to do so.
With prices starting at just 250,000 baht for a 10% share in a luxury studio close to the beach on Pratumnak Hill, a visit to EXPO to find out more at an obligation-free presentation could be time well spent. This concept could even be an attractive proposition to people living in Pattaya permanently – find out how by contacting A+.
