Paul has got to be dick. Why would anybody search 2 months back for a post on their third post?
Too long in Exile, too long not singing my song.
Too long like a rolling stone, Too long in exile
Too long in Exile, baby you just arent my friend.
Too long in Exile my friend, Baby you can never go home again.

The property value on the south Andaman islands I know of are going through the roof. It's a bit reason why Koh Yao Noi will soon share the same demise as many of the other islands in Thailand.Originally Posted by dickeeier

One day there would lot's of strange Hi-so tousrists with posh bags and the next there was nothing. is this how thailand deal with tourism? i'm very interested in learning about the thailand uncovered advertising campaign because if i uncover anymore it'll be like living in hell.
Joking apart it seems like that everywhere at the moment.
Well, they do sometimes. A Thai woman that I work with has a brother in a bank and when one of my colleagues was looking to buy a house, this brother took him around heaps of houses and condos that the bank had foreclosed on.Originally Posted by josh_ingu
You could also view them online.
Josh, You can walk into any bank in Thailand and look at their books of foreclosed homes. My first one I bought at a bank auction. Many, many foreclosed properties here.
You are so right in that it was not enforced at all before the 97 crash, but after that the banks have to try at least to lend and enforce the lending laws to international standards. I have seen a couple cars being towed off as well.
greened ya for that one Josh!!
Nah I have only made the mistake of giving green and not red.
Not big on reds, only given three in my time on here. And those were for personal attacks. Better to just move on.
so what's with the prices on foreclosed properties? retail market or reduced?
...you get what you need.

I am hoping that the market does downturn a bit in the next couple of years. If I continue to work in the middle east (but surely not at this g**d*** university) then in a couple of years I'll have some serious money to buy some land and build the house we want.
I think here in Hat Yai we have a unique situation. The town is dying because of fear generated by attacks by insurgents in neighboring provinces and a few attacks here, as well. What used to be a boppin' vibrant little city is a ghost town most evenings now.
Let me know, guys, when you think it's bottomed out.
Or, how many blind beggars does it take to own a condo?Originally Posted by zehner
Coups have a way of changing national images, don't they. NEVER would I invest in the Third World. As if I had the dosh to get to BKK on a bus and munch on an apple.
Last time I did the Hat I saw just about nobody who didn't live there. The street sales people were crankier than fcuk. What up with that? You'd think they'd be following me to the shitter .. just in case I hadn't enough toilet paper.Originally Posted by MisterStretch
