The most popular rental properties tend to fall within four main categories:
Serviced Apartments: This is the most popular form of rental property. These condos are more similar to hotel rooms, and even come with amenities such as housekeeping and concierge services.
Rental Condominiums: A rental unit that is not considered a “Serviced Apartment” and has none of the amenities they offer.
Houses: Usually 2 to 3 times bigger than a town house, these offer potentially the best value for the most space, and will usually be located within the suburbs.
Town Houses: Smaller houses, also in the suburbs. Generally bigger than condos, but less expensive than Houses.
In Bangkok Especially, Location is Everything
Particularly in Bangkok, rental rates are greatly influenced by how far a specific property is from the most often-used train stations. For example, if you know you are looking for easy access to a sky train station, rental rates for properties within walking distance of the Chit Lom station will generally be considerably higher than those for units close to Lumpini or Phrom Phong station.
To help you in your search, we’ll ask you to provide as many details as possible, including the following:
Are there certain areas which you are only willing to consider? Are there any areas that you are definitely not interested in exploring?
- What kind of square footage range would be acceptable?
- Do you need your rental unit to be furnished or unfurnished?
- How long do you anticipate needing the rental for?
These are just a few of the many questions that will likely need to be answered in the course of your search for a condo or property for rent in Bangkok. The Home Finder Team knows all the ins and outs, and can guide you expertly through the entire process, so that at the end of the day you’ll feel happy and confident knowing you’ve made the best choice.
Renting a Property in Bangkok: Asking the Right Questions:
Once you’ve found a place you like, there are still more details to be considered and negotiated with the landlord:
Does the lease need to be signed for a specific period of time?
- Is the rental rate negotiable depending on the anticipated duration of the tenancy?
- How much of a down payment is required?
- Are any utilities included in the rental amount?
- Are there any other fees levied that are not included in the rental amount?
- Will any penalties apply if the lease is terminated prematurely?
As you can see, it can be quite overwhelming to search yourself for a condo, apartment or other property for rent in Bangkok. Let us take the confusion out of the process so that you can focus on the most important thing: finding a place that you can manage financially over the long term, and one that will give you access to the transportation, amenities and type of lifestyle you are seeking to get the most enjoyment you possibly can while living your life in Bangkok.
