House Depreciation?

Appreciate all your responses and experience. I'm about to have a valuation carried out on a property. I've estimated the value of the construction which, in this case is as close to perfect as I've seen out here. The land value has been easy to assess. Through a friend of a friend, I'm aware how mu...

House Depreciation?

Interesting. We bought 11 rai from someone desperate to sell, looks like a pretty good investment to me now. Think I'll get the three little pigs round and build me a straw hut!!!

House Depreciation?

Wow 20 years and no uplift - better than depreciation I suppose. I see many guys pumping lots of money into their construction whilst my wife just tells me to buy land and don't go crazy on the house. For once I'm starting to understand what she's talking about! Yeah THB:£ only relevant if you move ...

House Depreciation?

House Depreciation? I'm struggling with this. In Thailand, whilst land generally appreciates in value, houses "appear" to do the opposite. According to my research, if you built a wooden 2 storey house it depreciates at 5% pa until it's worthless (i understand, the termites move in). A typical Engli...

Risk of dying in the next five years..

If I don't buy a car soon and keep riding this bloody moped I reckon my chances will remain at about 99% as long as there are Thai people still trying to drive on the roads, and the pavements.

Large Stones to Help Retain Soil

I'm looking for a source for some large stones to support a tapered soil bank on my land. This is not a large amount of soil which requires a retaining wall so a mixture of large and smaller size stones will do the job. If anyone can recommend a source like a quarry or recent large excavation or bui...

Stray wheel nearly kills

Wheel nuts are a good idea on lorries, please will someone tell the Thais https://www.facebook.com/ole.arenanchai/videos/vb.100003035276861/725653860879116/?type=2&theater Check out the tread on the tyre (or not as the case may be) It looks like the person in the car does make contact with the wheel.

Idea for a Business!

There is good and bad everywhere, any country you choose. All you need to do is to spend time finding the right people to work with and share your vision. You'll probably work through a lot of poor workers but getting a good gang together and fixing stuff swiftly and to a good standard is surely the...

Monkey business

Gee can't believe these responses. If you can, go find it and release it. One day or more of complete freedom is surely better than living in that hell-hole. Thais don't give a **** about most things except money and their individual. They don't finish anything cos they just want to save money, most...

An end to 'unofficial fees' charged by Thai officials?

Will it stop the old bill flagging me over and passing a hand close to the gear lever demanding money for no reason at all? The last one who tried it took nothing after I asked my colleague to translate "that's odd, in England police would be regarded as criminals if they did this". Didn't realise h...

And my wife is still set in the old ways - she prefers 10 hours VIP coach at 450 baht each way, bloody lunacy. Last time I went VIP it was anything but and I pledged never to use public transport in Thailand again - and I won't!

Risk of dying in the next five years..

Scarily, before I left England a news article suggested 30% of our grandchildren will live to 100. Nursing homes are the boom business of the future - either that or shot gun sales!
