Cheap Rental Property In Thailand


one rile and detached bungalow come on
guess how much per month here we are again hi guys hi everyone
Simon here so this has becoming a bit of a challenge now finding property for
rent or to buy in Thailand for you guys to give you ideas of prices on what’s
about seven kilometers from our house a foreigner has come to us and said he
wants to find a house there wandering around and he’s found a place remember
we looked at Ian’s house in Chara I’m six and a half thousand bar with the use
of a swimming pool and a gym six and a half thousand baht is cheap it’s very
cheap now where I’m stood right now one mile behind me is the main junction
which is Bangkok ratchaburi petchaburi a KFC and McDonald’s mile and a half
behind me on the road this is one of these service roads where
there’s a canal over there behind me main road the other side and this is a
service road and also water this side but what have we found here one row of
land so it’s going down here along the back and all the way around one row of
land on this one ray of land is a small building which could be absolutely
anything it could be turned into a workshop room for rent
I really don’t know anything you want and then the main house that there is a detached bungalow palm trees is the back of garden and
behind a few metres behind is the edge of the property detached bungalow for
rent here in Thailand seven kilometers from our house doesn’t look bad does it
from here it doesn’t look bad at all but it needs
quite a bit of work the landlady is prepared to pay for aircon shower
electrical bits and pieces to be done there’s water to the property and
electric to the property so with the landlady doing that with a new aircon what’s the rent let’s have a quick look
inside and show you how much work needs doing you would be probably liable to do
the work and we’ve got a bit of subsidence I can see the floors drop in
here typical Thai roof
no ceiling outside great front garden window door
I’d say that’s possibly the kitchen so walk around the outside like we don’t
really do go be careful where I’m walking there is concrete around the
outside and we’ve got water out the back as well
tap the level of the plants love it
I’m saving the best till last not taking you in yet
we’ve brought certain moves are in charge of a building seem to have a look
and see what the cost will be couple of Windows this of seating area what if you
look at that Satya looking over that and the main roads only a mile over there
what of you this is all your garden and again it okay there’s needs gardening
around the back so yeah it’s it’s a bit rickety it needs some paint it needs to
do it up a little bit let’s have a look inside
oh it’s even a table free table you ready for this through the front door hmm no ceiling okay it’s not a problem you
can put a false ceiling in not too expensive maybe the landlady will put
the ceiling in you could call that free aircon ventilation throughout the house door room the only room with tiled floor free furniture with a picture on the
wall this possibly is the bedroom there is electrics in here oh my ventilation
it means you’ve even got free ventilation there’s a crack on the floor
there where the floors dropped that’s definitely subsided but it’s only
it’s fixable windows yeah put aircon in here a false ceiling I
think this is the line nice some old sofas here again it’s just
needs a ceiling they’ve old toy furniture so this must be the bathroom
thai-style oh it’s got a European Tooele way where the toilet roll holder and the
plunger and a mirror that’s not too bad showerhead that’s not too bad at all
it’s got a tiled floor it needs a clean and a paint and a ceiling but come on
when I tell you the price of this house and it’s available on a one-year
two-year three-year rent with the option to buy but it’s part of a large piece of
land at the back this I think is the dining room
and kitchen that hasn’t got a kitchen there’s nothing in here at all okay so
it needs a kitchen fitting it’s not the end of the world you can buy kitchen use
really cheap here in Thailand paint false ceiling it’s not too bad a little
few structures but with a negotiation with the landlady
what’s your put in what she’ll do for you it’s all possible one ray of land an
outbuilding a detached house which looks like one bedroom lounge dining room
kitchen and bathroom it’s not that hot in here either there’s quite a nice one
rile and detached bungalow come on guess how much per month ian’s was very small
compared to this but yes he had a swimming pool you want to swim there’s a
pond out there you can swim in the canal if you really want to swim you turn around come on camera catch up
get some lights 2,000 baht a month 2,000 baht a month maybe the landlady
would put the ceiling in maybe she’s already offered aircon shower bits and
pieces there is an electric box with trips that’s good
she’s offered these other bits and pieces fits it she’s happy to do a
one-year two-year three-year rent what can can you say I just look at it seem
got a satellite dish on the road how amazing is that come on guys you’ve
got to admit and the funny thing is that this foreigner has found not only this
haze for mm back but down the road there a smaller house in a little bit better
condition for mm back and across the road further down there a shop unit with
two bedrooms behind the 3,000 bow how wonderful what are you waiting for
come on get to toilet amazing absolutely amazing
so this actually is part of 9r I of land behind and the owner would rather sell
the whole package the land on the house but the pro she’s asking is silly she’s
after like six million Bart for nine row of land with the house that’s double
what it’s worth maybe she’ll come down in price in the near future maybe she’ll
separate this house and do it at a reasonable price foreigner taking on this rent is going
to put it in the lease that he has the option to buy
that’s a negotiated price what I’m gonna do he’s moving in here the building
sement going to come in gonna paint it do some work fit all the bits and pieces
I’m gonna film it for you and show you what it turns out like and what he’s
gonna do with all the garden so this is going to be an interesting one but come
on 2,000 baht a month what can you say love you I absolutely love it welcome to
Thailand or semi-rural living with KFC and McDonald’s a mile and a half away
anyway let me know comments below I’m sure you will what you think of this and
any questions and we’ll catch up soon

  1. snakes and the local wild life included in the rest. id put up some preventetiv mesures so insure that it wouldent come inside before renting that place.

  2. Yes that sound,s nice where are you in Thailand? From the nearest Airport?l am just about to retire soon starting the sell up now.l love the rural  making veg garden  motor bike… Thai chick babe And traveling around.Lived in Thailand in the 80,s love my chili LOL

  3. if i could get a 30 year lease @ B2000 a month, if i was 40 or so and if I had a woman with guts, ie, not a Bar girl, if i was interested in organic farming or some sort of cultivation , then i would attack this place.
    It will take a lot of effort, to make the joint liveable.Take care of the subsiding walls, seal up the ceiling and insulate, keep the mossies and other critters out,
    Honestly, if Mem took you to a joint like that, or vice versa, what would be the result?

  4. Any sane person would run a mile. Fix it up and hand back to the landlady in 3 years?. Not a chance. If you can buy outright and demolish the house and start from scratch. Maybe 👍

  5. Subtitles funny.. "Come on ..what are you waiting for.. come to toilet' …(Thailand).. I think the land lady paying someone 2,000 a month is quite reasonable, and the extras. Incentive for doing up the kitchen- Mem will come and cook for you.. free. You're good Simon.. you could sell anything..the possibilities.. albeit impossible.. are endless.

  6. What was your previous video title…"Thailand village life did I make a mistake!" … perhaps you got the titles mixed up & you were asking visitors to holiday…"Cheap rental property …… :-))

  7. Thanks Simon , enjoyed your video. If anyone is to play you in a movie about your life it has to be Anthony Hopkins! Keep up the great work,

  8. reptiles free. ventilation fine. doesn't bother me. just gotta have "yung nets" for sleeping. could just net up ceiling openings too. not sure about the purple/red runners/walls…needs all white interior paint job. gardening would be a pleasure. good one Simon

  9. The rent is a loss leader.
    The landlady knows the tenant will improve the property at no expense to herself. At the end of the tenancy she will have an improved home to rent.

  10. Simon sent you an email guess you don’t answer some, wanted to visit for a couple hours and give something to you,thanks for another great video very informational since I’m in pattaya and gonna take the ferry to HUA hin next Thursday or Friday for a few days looking for a house to purchase

  11. This is exactly what I am looking for. I would stay busy fixing things up a little at a time. Work the yard in the early morning late evenings get it into shape. Perfect for when I make my move to Thailand! Lots to keep me busy.

  12. Give me a lawnmower soon make the lawn like Lords!! Get rid of those palms behind the house more daylight.

  13. Yet 2 or more areas where rain would pour through during wet season. Mosquitoes roaches etc.. Get to Thailand yes but Bangkok Pattaya better as solid condos houses. I've lived most my life in Hong Kong Singapore Malaysia that house will drain ur wallet dry just getting it ship shape and water tight.. It has potential as long as u knew 100% guarantee at reasonable cost after doing all the major work to it be yours.. even my alarm bells ringing spider sense ringing could be a disaster

  14. Cmon, Let's be serious guys….Let"s face it, 2k Baht is a big fat Nothing-Burger. It's $60 US. Sounds to me like the guy renting this place is looking for something to occupy his time. If the owner is willing to put up the $ then why not if you have the skills and know how. My only concern is the Rainy Season. All that black on the concrete looks like it is from flooding. Possibly why the foundation is cracked in the bedroom. Just wondering how deep it will get.

  15. How much to buy the place? It has potential for the right price. Finish out the roof and add an insulated drop ceiling, it would be much better. I am worried about settling and having ground water at grade though.

  16. Foreigners cannot own land in Thailand. What good is the land if you can't do anything with it? And you should pay to fix up a house you don't own. What a deal, Simon must be a liberal Democrat.

  17. This property do not look like a typical thai house. More like a house built by a farang. I reckoned it is a house funded by the landlady's previous farang husband……. now she is ignorant about how much it is worth as it might be the only one of its kind house around her.

  18. From an expert point of view, don't bother to rent it….. no matter how cheap. The house is built with a cheap budget and the owner had insufficient knowledge of construction. Foundation is not done properly and the roofing system is not designed properly too….. putting in a false ceiling will result in further longterm problems.

  19. She may have hust got rid of her farang and currently trying to reap a profit from his investment…… 6million bahts for this trash…. she must be dreaming in lala land.

  20. if your in Thailand why would you go to KFC and McDonalds?? Seriously, I don't know why all you guys go to Thailand? Marketing I think? I am in Vietnam and it's way better than Thailand, much cheaper , nicer woman, cz they are truely traditional , way better food and friendlier. Piss on Thailand,,,,,but to each his own. If you like thailand, good for you,

  21. Cost of renovations divided by 36 months Plus 2000 baht per month is the real monthly rent Simon thats if if one was to stay 36 month, problem us older folks do not know how far away the grim reaper is, especially those of us on tablets trying to outpace him

  22. All the comments so far are spot on. In summary, landlord wants tenant to improve the property without cost to them, property is best bulldozed and rebuilt, and $251k AUD to buy the house and 3 acres of land is daylight robbery.
    Sounds like an asset rich, cash poor landlord. Move along..

    PS: Thanks for taking the time to show us Simon, very interesting and insightful.

  23. As always, Simon produced an interesting video – for which thanks – with many thoughtful and honest replies. Seeing this house (and living with my local wife in a very rural area in Sabah, Malaysian Borneo), I'd like to offer some more practical opinions: (1) cracks on the floor by some walls suggest a serious construction flaw; either the poured concrete floor is too thin, or there was no wire mesh laid down, or the was no moisture retaining plastic sheets laid down before pouring the concrete – moisture, especially during the rainy season will cause the floor to gradually sink. Worst case: the wall can collapse. (2) no rain gutters, down pipes, or drainage canals around the house may cause flooding inside and outside the house (3) the sandy access road will be a mud trap during the rainy season. (4) I didn't see an electricity meter – if it's not there (it may be, I just didn't see it) – it will be an illegal installation. If there is an inspection, you will be sitting in the dark for a very long time. Also, if the landlady hasn't paid her electricity bill for a year, you will be responsible for settling it – make sure there are enough electrical outlets for your needs, and use surge protectors on all expensive items such as refrigerator(s), TV, ec. (5) where is the water coming from? If it's from a public source, where is the water meter? Is there a water filter? Is there a water pump to get some water pressure? (6) Where will the waste water run off? There should be a septic tank. If you don't care if your waste water will flow into a nearby ditch, you will care when the doctors mumbles something abut cholera, or worse (7) If you offer to repaint the house, be sure that you don't use indoor paint on the exterior walls. (8) We noticed that the hinges on the entrance door are facing the outside – anyone got a screwdriver? (9) If you sign a multi-year lease, and the landlady decides to sell the land, and the new owner wants you out – then what? (10) Already many good comments about a ceiling, so I won't bother to comment (11) Although the landlady may agree to install aircon, ceilings, etc., the fact is: if it's not all there or done before you sign the lease, don't count on anything being done after you sign the lease and paid good money upfront. If you're still interested, get a good lawyer to draw up the lease, and don't sign anything written in Thai, if you don't understand or read the language.

  24. I wouldn't live in it if you paid me 20,000b per month. Nor would most Thai city folk. That house needs to go and fully rebuilt.

  25. Great video!!!  only wounder if you rent an old bad house , why not buy ? cause it have to be cheap ? If you rent house like this you have repair alot and that you will not get back when you lease contrackt is finish ?make more videos of different house for sale

  26. Nice area ,As you said ; she asked too much money for 9 rai.Quite over on the top.Well ,all whole house need to renovate.

  27. HEY SIMON AND MEM, ENJOYING YOUR VIDEOS AND THOUGHT I WOULD GIVE MY COMMENTS AND A QUESTION OR TWO. THE HOUSE IS PRETTY BASIC BUT WITH A LITTLE WORK IT COULD BE A NICE PLACE TO LIVE. IT LOOKS LIKE A VERY QUIET AREA WITH NO NEIGHBORS TO CLOSE TO DISTURB YOU. THE ONLY PROBLEM I CAN SEE IS AFTER THE THREE YEARS YOU HAVE NO GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL HAVE A PLACE TO LIVE.

    CASE IN POINT. I MARRIED A BEAUTIFUL THAI WOMAN AND BUILT HER A BEAUTIFUL 4200 SQUARE FOOT HOME. AT THE END OF 6 YEARS SHE LOOKED AT ME ONE NIGHT AND SAID " YOU GO ". I WILL SAY THAT I THOUGHT SOMETHING LIKE THIS WAS COMING AND STARTED PUTTING MONEY IN MY PERSONAL ACCOUNT THAT SHE DIDN'T HAVE ACCESS TO.

    ONLY PEOPLE THAT HAVE DONE THE RESEARCH KNOWS THAT WHEN SOMETHING LIKE THIS HAPPENS, YOU HAVE NO RECOURSE TO CLAIM ANY RIGHTS TO GET ANY OF THE MONEY YOU INVESTED IN THE HOUSE BECAUSE YOU ARE A FOREIGNER AND HAVE NO RIGHTS IN THAILAND. SO I SAID GOODBYE TO MY WIFE AND MY $30,000.00 INVESTMENT.

    TO BE HONEST I DON'T THINK SHE THOUGHT I WOULD REALLY LEAVE AND AFTER 3 YEARS THE HOUSE IS STILL IN THE SAME CONDITION OR MAYBE A LITTLE WORSE THAN WHEN I LEFT. ALTHOUGH THE HOUSE WAS DONE FOR THE MOST PART, IT STILL NEEDED A LITTLE WORK TO CALL IT FINISHED. BUT QUITE FRANKLY, I GOT TIRED OF BEING HER FAMILIES PERSONAL ATM MACHINE. LOL IT SEEMED EVERY TIME WE WENT ANYWHERE I HAD TO FILL UP THE GAS TANK OR BUY DINNER FOR EVERYONE AND THEIR FRIENDS. I JUST GOT TIRED OF NEVER HAVING ANY MONEY FOR MYSELF. WHO'S FAULT WAS THAT? ME OF COURSE, BECAUSE I LET IT HAPPEN AND SHOULD HAVE PUT A STOP TO IT LONG BEFORE IT GOT TO THAT POINT.

    SO NOW I'VE BEEN ALONE FOR 3 YEARS AT 71 YEARS OLD. I HAVE TWO BAD KNEES I HAVE TO HAVE SURGERY ON AND I'M GOING BACK TO AMERICA IN MAY OF 2019 TO DO THE KNEES AND GET MY FINANCES STRAIGHTENED OUT AND THEN COME BACK TO THAILAND TO LIVE UNTIL I DIE. WHEN I COME BACK I'VE DECIDED I DON'T WANT TO LIVE IN THE CITY ANY LONGER SO I WILL BE LOOKING FOR A PLACE IN THE COUNTRY. MIGHT JUST HAVE TO HAVE YOU HELP ME FIND A PLACE.

  28. Nice video. Just the following point: 9 rai = 1.44 ha, right? How could even 4'500'000฿ = 121'157€ be a good price for that ? That would be more than i would have to pay here in Europe for it (rural area here is around 5€ per m²). Can that additional 9 rai be used for buildings or is it just farmland?

  29. Interesting video. May I ask what part of the country are you at(province)? I am asking because I am retiring in 1 year and half year and planning to join you in Thailand. Thank you

  30. Needs $25,000 put into it go make it lively and she get it back in 3 years !

    This is how it works in the Beautiful Thai Kingdom !

    I’ve heard the stories too many times and that’s why I did not stay in Thailand I could not find a woman I can trust

  31. Wow, that’s a great find! If I didn’t already have such a sweet deal going on my 7 rai spot, I would definitely look into that. I’m not sure what all the delicate cunts in the comment section are whining about, but I could easily do some simple repairs and improvements and make this a nice little redneck paradise.

  32. Hi simon love your videos just wanted I'm thinking of moving to Thailand the question I wanted to ask as a 39 year old man with a budget of 200euros a week do you think this would be enough money to pay for rent and other expensives and still have enough money to enjoy myself each week as I am looking to move ASAP would be grateful for any advice many thanks and best wishes

  33. 2000 baht plus wages for tradesmen and materials to do it up, while you are trying to live there, how long will that be? Not as cheap as it looks. From the owner’s point of view a hell of a deal, she gets the house made habitable and gets paid 2000 a month, she can’t lose.

  34. In Thailand pretty safe to live out of big city because in bkk many country (Asian) around Thailand make a mess to tourist n cheaper for food n home no pay taxes for the land.

  35. Have you checked the area for radiation? WELL I GUESS YOU COULD BUY 80 GALLONS OF SPRAY FOAM INSULATION THAT WOULD SEAL IT UP GOOD!

  36. Cost of living seems really affordable. But the requirement of 65000 bhat monthly pension for a retirement visa is beyond my means. Also, the added requirement to report address change every 3 months or otherwise can be a pain. And then each time you travel out of the country you can lose your visa seems tedious. For now I will stick with the Philippines.

  37. Sorry, non Thais are not allowed to own land in Thailand. My wife and I have 3 rai that we built our house on. I paid for the house and land but as far as the government is concerned, it is all hers. I have no claim whatsoever. If your friend is not married to a Thai national, it will not happen.

  38. If you are single why rent run down house if you can rent the nicer condo.Rent to own risky business and I am Thai I don’t want to risk it for sure.

  39. Hello Simon is this deal still available? Any other extra cheap places in that area i could rent for 3 to 6 months to a year soon? Thanks.
