Buying real estate in Bangkok can be quite a challenge for foreigners because there are restrictions and regulations governing land and property ownership that says foreign nationals are allowed to purchase up to 49 percent of the total number of condo units in any freehold condominium in the country; but then foreigners are not allowed to purchase landed property at once.
Then there's also the opportunity for foreigners to buy a condo unit by forming a Thai company so that can control the acquisition of the property that is originally not for foreign ownership. The laws are strict when it comes to owning land in Thailand because this is technically not possible, except when invests at least one million US dollars in a project approved by the Board of Investment. Only then can buy 1,600sqm of land. Those interested in investing in real estate in Thailand can also look at Horizon Homes
