Your first step is to work out your budget or how much you can afford to spend buying property in Thailand.

One way foreigners often finance the purchase of Thailand property is to remortgage a house they own in their native country, releasing equity for their new purchase.

Thailand property financing of up to 60% of the purchase price is available to foreigners through Bangkok Bank in Singapore. This is only offered through their Singapore branch and they have an annual allocation for these mortgages, so this facility may not always be available.

You should look for signs of other infrastructure development in the area you are considering, new roads, rail links, airports, new shopping centres , sports or leisure facilities can all lead to Thailand real estate prices rising in this location.

If buying a condo, you need to show that the funds have been sent into Thailand in foreign currency converted to Thai Baht on arrival from overseas.

The local receiving bank should be asked to provide the buyer with a Tor Tor Sam 3 Certificate of Remittance, stating that the funds arrived for the purpose of buying a Thailand condo. The certificate does not need to specify a particular Thailand condo.

In your budget calculations, do not forget to add on the extras associated with your Thailand real estate purchase:

Thailand Property Taxes:-

1. Income Tax or Withholding Tax
2. Land Transfer Fee
3. Stamp Duty
4. Specific Business Tax (SBT)
