Lumpini Place

Post by Sakhonnick » June 16, 2013, 11:03 am

I was in Udon last week and found out through a friend about these Condo's

I only went in to have a look and was surprised to see 90%+ sold out already

Not much to choose from but i picked the last one on the 14th floor (top) with City Views, it backs up to the lift shaft but they say that there will be very minimal noise if any from that.

But reason i bought was the downpayments and in a farang name as only 10% has been sold to farangs

5,000baht down for 15 months then month 16, 30,000 total 105,000baht then balance on completion

Im sure with the 2015 asean thing and with the way udon is getting bigger it cant be a failure ofcourse anything offplan is a risk but with new build condos in other parts of the country asking for 40-60% downpayments over the building term the 8% down seems like to good to be true.

any other guys bought here?

Not knocking to OP here or pissing on his chips .........but ,,, i know a few expats here who have done a similar thing ,, one is staying in the apartments behind the shop while his condo is being built ,,,, i got the impression my opinion only that some seem to rush into signing up because of the low down payment ,, without fully going through the full thought process ,, rather like going into toyota for a service , seeing a new car n buying it ,,, its that easy and these developers make it so tempting and easy to snare the impulse buyer ....... i aint no speculator just a humble shop keeper definately wouldnt buy on impulse or off plan ,,,,, remember the View Talay experiences of folks i knew in Pattaya.

If they were asking the same payments like pattayathere is no way i would of bought, The base condo is like that and i walked out, a few things swung it form, 105,000 is the total risk ofcourse no one does not want to loose that but the golden rule is dont invest more your prepared to loose in Thailand, Ive lost with property already well more broke even but a lot of stress to go with it with houses in Pattaya, condos are easier to maintain and leave locked up,
my plan is either to sell before i pay the balance if i can make a profit, or rent it out or just keep it as a place to stay when in udon, ok it will not compete with hotel prices but if anything the place should stay atleast the same value,

OK, I know its only been a few months but not much happening at this location yet, is it a scam? maybe these condos that were told to be finished by Oct 14 will never go up?

There's some sort of site prep going on behind the showroom building....pilings perhaps. More work going on at Lumpini than at the CP condo unit on Srichomcheun. I stopped by the showroom when they first opened....could have sworn the girl said completion date was to be late 2014.

More clarity on actual construction time and completion dates on these condo projects seems in order, and I cannot help.

In general in Thailand, a high rise needs 3 years to build, eg in Bangkok with professional builders. I suppose a mid rise needs 18-24 months. The condo opposite the land department is making fast progress now.

If anyone thinks a mid rise (what, 8-14 stories) can be done in just a few months, well, I know of a few bridges crossing the river to Laos you might also like to purchase.

Yes im sure the target date of October 2014 for all 6 buildings 14 floors complete was well lets say a lie,

Good side is i can hadle 5,000 month payment total 105,000 over the term and rest on completion, no rush to move in, im sure it will get done and if it does not well ive not lost that much, i guess thats what buying off plan is all about. risks!!

There's work going on at Lumpini.....but Autumn of '14 ain't gonna happen. '15 maybe. I noticed some preliminary ground work going on at the CP condo unit across from the mosque. And Skyland Condo at the fountain circle is moving along.

I passed by Lumpini Condo project this afternoon. The only thing that can be seen from the street, 50 meters in front of the project, are the cranes. It appears they're still preparing the ground for the foundation/first floor. Definitely not 2014!
