This is our property issue and inside you will find some commentary and analysis from our writers and partners all designed to help you get a better idea of what’s happening in the property industry right now. This is of course alongside our regular offering of diverse topics and opinions which we hope will entertain and guide you as you browse through the pages.
It is most definitely a buyers’ market for property in the capital right now, and it is hard not to notice the amount of “for rent” and “for sale” signs on houses all around the city, especially in the expat areas like Kemang, where in some places it seems like almost every second or third house is on the market. But if you are currently looking for property, don’t be fooled by fancy facades and low asking prices – there is much more to consider. Take your safety seriously and make sure the property you are considering is built to code and managed properly. Unfortunately there are still many unscrupulous developers out there who put profit margins ahead of safety considerations. Our guest writer Andrew Slatter expands on this topic inside.
