Buyers of offshore real estate property can be divided into two categories: The fortunate buyers who actually receive the property they paid for and the unfortunate ones who end up losing their money in offshore real estate fiascos or end up with a lemon of a property. Although the fortunate buyers outnumber the unfortunate, ventures in purchasing real estate offshore still end up badly for too many people. Did you know that the difference between fortunate and unfortunate buyers is sheer luck, not more business savvy on one side than the other? Fortunate buyers are lucky enough to buy from one of the reliable developers doing business overseas. Do not let luck dictate offshore real estate purchases. Learn all about the critical issues and the many pitfalls awaiting the unwary buyer.
The book is divided in two sections. In the first section René Philippe discusses the general issues to be addressed by a buyer who purchases real estate outside his home country. In the second part he explains how those issues are dealt with in Thailand. Because the author deals in the first part with general issues this book is a worthwhile read not only for foreigners who want to buy real estate in Thailand but also for foreigners or Thais purchasing real estate overseas.
René Philippe approaches the subject in a manner clear, easy to understand and conductive to reflection and questioning. His objective is not only to impart knowledge and experience but also to raise buyers' awareness of the potential dangers that are awaiting them and how to avoid them.
