Know where you want to buy
North, East, South or West? Overlooking the Andaman sea or the limestone karst of Phang Nga Bay? On the beach or on the clifftop? Quiet area or crazy nightlife? Close to the shopping malls, or in walking distance to Phuket Town? There is really something for every Phuket property buyer on the island. Do your research and know where you want to buy. If you’re looking for a good rental return then condos in Patong and Karon are popular choices, but you can also get some great returns from luxury villas on Natai beach, which is just off Phuket and only 20mins from Phuket International airport. Facilities are one of the key factors in the popularity of locations and with attractions like the new Blue Tree opening in Cherntalay as well as the new central project Porto de Phuket, this area is becoming a strong investment area with some new and existing condos and villas on the market.
Do your due diligence
Due diligence is one of those terms that you may understand on the surface but don’t know how to put it into practice. The dictionary definition of due diligence says that it is “the care that a reasonable person exercises to avoid harm to other persons or their property.” Simply put, due diligence means doing your homework. Before investing any funds on anything, you should make yourself an expert, or at least talk to the experts. Do not skip this part.
