market for condominiums in Pattaya and condos in Jomtien is
quite volatile and seems to be subject to big swings. This is in part due to
the seasonal influx of tourists in Pattaya but also in part to local events that can
either attract or 'scare off' investors. Of course the term 'property slump'
is seldom heard around the offices of Pattaya Real Estate Agents. We are
just having a quiet period is the usual excuse for the feet up on desk
Although the property market in Pattaya has gone
into deep slumber recently the demand for condominiums in Pattaya and
Jomtien although not exactly booming is holding it's own. The future looks
bright with plenty of condo projects planned. The only question is - When
will they start? and how much more the prices will go up before investors
choose to go elsewhere.
Should I consider buying a condo in Pattaya?
Will a low rise beach condo in Jomtien be a good investment for the
future? Can a foreigner own a condominium Thailand? Can I trust
Pattaya Lawyers and "legal experts" to give me impartial advice? Is
Elvis still alive?
I am not in a position to answer all these
questions. All I can do is to give you the access to information
about the property market in Pattaya, Jomtien and the surrounding areas.
Hard facts about existing condo projects in Pattaya, articles about condos
and opinions from the folks who own or rent condos in Jomtien and Pattaya.
I live in a condo in Jomtien so I think I
qualify to give you my opinions about Jomtien Complex. Over the next few
months I hope to visit every condo project in this area, see for myself and
pass on my thoughts and the opinions of the people, owners I meet on my
travels. By the way Elvis is alive and well and appearing for a
nightly performance at a well known restaurant on Jomtien Beach.
New condo projects seem to be announced every
week. There are
also dozens of good quality housing projects in Pattaya
that are really good value at the moment. A lot of houses and a shortage of
buyers. A good time to negotiate a bargain price house or villa by the beach

Why buy or rent a condominium in Pattaya or Jomtien Beach?
Because the scores, soon to be hundreds
of Pattaya real estate agents are of course extolling the virtues of
this most un-virtuous of locations.
Because I chose to live here. Some may say that
this is because my judgment is flawed or that I have other un-virtuous

View Talay 7 - Admin Court Ruling - Implications for Present &
Future Condo Projects in Pattaya and Jomtien Beach -
View Talay 7 is on the move again. No it isn't going away - I am
sad to say. It is once more going upwards, you know the way
skyscrapers should when they are being constructed. Now this is
a fact. And about the only fact that can be accurately
ascertained at this time. However the question is - why is View
Talay now suffering from that Pattaya syndrome - an infrequent
and unpredictable erection?

The Spinnaker Condominium, White Sand Beach
Announced recently is the White Sand Beach Residential Complex
comprising a five star hotel, low rise condominium and two high
rise condos called The Spinnaker Condominium. Good news to hear
of some more developments on this stretch of the coast. This
area should attract more Bangkok Thai investors who generally
shy away from the 'seedy' image of Pattaya City.
