3 Mistakes to Avoid When Looking For a Condo to Rent in Bangkok

3 Mistakes to Avoid When Looking For a Condo to Rent in Bangkok

When it comes to finding a condo to rent in Bangkok, it is all too easy to make costly mistakes. Read on to find out the top 3 mistakes we find that prospective tenants make during their condo hunt in Bangkok.

1 – Square Footage Focus

When looking for a condo to rent in Bangkok, you should understand that it is possible to make a small condo look much bigger through strategic placement of decorations and possessions. Dismissing a condo because it is smaller than your square footage requirement could be a mistake as you are potentially missing out on a bargain. It is also important to look at the local amenities and take this into account before moving on from what could be a ‘hidden gem’.

2 – City Obsession

With the advent of the BTS sky train and MRT underground, it is easier than ever to make your way into the heart of Bangkok. As a result, you should not just place your focus on a condo to rent in Bangkok on the city centre when the province offers cheaper accommodation and easy access to the many attractions of the capital of Thailand. Provinces have a much slower pace of life and cleaner air so if you are someone that wants occasional peace and quiet; consider a condo on the outskirts of town.

3 – Not Taking Photographic Evidence

At HomeConnect Thailand, we would urge those who have signed a lease for a condo to rent in Bangkok to take pictures of the accommodation on the day they move in. This is especially the case if there is some minor damage to the place when you move in as then you can’t be accused of causing it. It is also important for you to set your camera so that it ‘burns in’ the timestamp or else you won’t be able to use it as proof! While we pride ourselves on honesty and integrity, there may be an unscrupulous landlord out there that will try and get you to pay for damage you did not cause so be sensible and take pictures!
