Should you purchase "off plan"?
Are you considering investing in "off plan" real estate projects in Pattaya or elsewhere in Thailand? The rewards for buying off plan can be significant, but there is also an element of risk, and you need to balance risk versus reward.

Investing in Off Plan Real Estate Projects in Pattaya is a must read if you want helpful tips about how to select the best property, how to mitigate your risk, and contract negotiation tips.
The first thing you will learn when you read my article is that you need to know the developer. The developer of Pacific Bay is Nova Group, a prolific developer with many successful projects completed.

Buy one unit before show rooms open in about 6 weeks and get a 3% discount, 5% discount if you buy 2 to 5 units, and 10% discount if you buy an entire floor. Click here to see price list . I know the best units to choose, so call for my advice.
Prolific Pattaya Developer
Nova Group started business in Pattaya in 1994 with the acquisition of the Nova Lodge Hotel. Since then they've completed 6 condo projects, most recetly The Cliff and Novana Residence. Four projects are now under construction, most notably The Palm & Amari Residences, both of which will complete within 1 year.
Pacific Bay is the newest project launch in Jomtien by Nova Group. The location is superb, as it is located on Jomtien 2nd Road, where you have convenient access to Jomtien Beach, Sukhumvit Road and the Bangkok Motorway.

The position of this 3 rai plot of land is superb, as the land opposite the project site is fully developed all the way to Jomtien Beach with low rise condos and single family homes. This means that your sea views will be protected, which is always the first question of buyers.

Why should I buy now?
The project will be completed in 2019, so why should I buy off plan now? If you look at the recent success of The Cliff and The Palm, you know this developer will deliver what they promise and on time. The best units with the nicest views will be sold out within weeks. This is your chance to be a Pattaya property insider. 

Pre-launch pricing offers 3% to 10% discount
Prices will never be lower, and selection will never be better. In fact there will be a price increase when show units open in about 6 weeks. You will also enjoy the following discounts if you buy during the pre-sale:
  • 3% discount for 1 to 4 units
  • 5% discount for 5 to 9 units
  • 7% discount for 10 units
  • 10% discount if you buy an entire floor
Buy now to get the lowest price and lock in your ROI.

I have hand picked 10 excellent selections from among our 100s of Pattaya properties available for sale. The selection includes condominiums and houses, and one double shop in Wongamat. Click on the thumbnail photo to read more and see more photos.
Pattaya Beach Condo 105 sqm, 2 BR, 6.9 M
The only sea view Foreign quota in the building
Why I like it: Condos in "vintage" Pattaya Beach buildings are becoming more  popular.  Discerning buyers know that unit sizes are much larger than current builds, and the quality of construction is solid and built to last. This condo offers very good value for a seaview condo in this prime Pattaya Beach area. 
Passorn Village 180 sqm, 112 tw, 3 BR, 4.5 M 
For sale with private financing available
Why I like it: This quiet village has only 30 homes, and is a nice enclave of Thai and European expat residents. Here you are only 4 km from Jomtien Beach, 7 km to Pattaya and its conveniences, and just minutes away from Sukhumvit and area attractions, including world class golf, water parks, marinas and other attractions.
Bang Saray Condo  26 sqm studio, 929,000
Where else can you buy for under 1 million THB?
Why I like it: This condo in Bang Saray is an exceptional value, as land values here have been growing rapidly these past few years. Replacement cost for a condo in this area is at least 35% higher than this price. Only a few minutes drive to the beach & Sukhumvit Rd. Large pool, fitness, covered parking and security.
N. Pattaya House 2 BR, 150 sqm, 46 tw, 3.3 M
Why I like it: Nice 2-storey home just off of Sukhumvit Rd in North. Pattaya provides easy access to Pattaya City or the Bangkok motorway. The surrounding area has lots of green space and is not over built. This home is neat, clean and ready to move in. This is a modest price if you live and work in the area and want to own.
Nova Mirage Shop 96 sqm, 6.5 M
Why I like it: This shop is located in a popular condo a short walk to Wongamat Beach. The surrounding area has many condos and hotels, including several high rise condos that are nearing completion or currently under construction. The double shop enjoys a corner position on the ground floor, so lots of passing traffic.
Whenever you see a photo that looks interesting, click on the photo to get more information for that property. Information provided here is designed to be brief. You will get more details and many more photos from clicking on the photos throughout, which link to website.
Sunset Boulevard 104 sqm 2 BR, 8.5 M
Why I like it: Luxury condo in the popular Pratumnak Hill area has just been listed. The housing estate directly in front of this unit ensures that sea views will never be compromised. The unit is sold fully furnished and fitted, and it is ready to move in now. You will like the feel of this modern building, and you will love the views.
View Talay 3B 1 bed, 57 sqm, 4.25 million
Rare 1 bed room configuration
Why I like it: Most 57 sqm units in this building are studios. The owner of this condo is a seasoned builder and he modified the condo to a high standard. Every aspect of the design and fit out shows quality. The kitchen has lots of built-in cabinets, as well as western oven, microwave, hob and hood. Check out the views!
Huay Yai House 320 sqm, 4 BR, 200 tw, 14 M
Brand new home on spacious half rai of land
Why I like it: When you move to the east side, you can get much more land with your property. This plot is 800 sqm, and includes private pool and tropical gardens. Located southeast of Pattaya , you are close to area golf courses and attractions.  You are also a short drive to area beaches, shopping and dining.
City Garden Pattaya 60 sqm 1 bed, 4.25 M 
Sold with everything, 100% turnkey
Why I like it: This is without question the nicest unit I have seen in the complex. The owner added custom features, most notably ample storage. On the quiet side of Tower A, overlooking a park area that cannot be built on. City Garden is in a central location, popular as a residence or as an investment property for rent.
Khaotalo Pool Villa 150 sqm, 2 beds, 5.5 M
Impeccably well maintained home
Why I like it: This pool villa is pristine. The original layout was for 3 bed rooms, which was modified to allow for a huge sunken lounge overlooking the swimming pool. The location is private and quiet, get very popular for expats who want to live near golf courses and schools. Great value for under $175,000 USD.
Whether you are relocating to the Eastern Seaboard, or live here already and are ready for a change, we have literally hundreds of rentals to choose from. The selection here was hand picked by me, and represents some of the more interesting rentals available now. But this is only a small percentage of what we have, so call or visit our website if you do not see something here that meets your requirements.
No detail spared with this over the top renovation at Jomtien Beach. Can you spell "feng shui"?

I love this apartment located just steps from Jomtien Beach. One of the most interesting features is the design of the balconies, which maximizes existing space to create observation areas from which to enjoy stunning ocean views during the day, amazing sunset views, and the bright lights of the city at night.  Sliding glass doors open out onto both balconies, which effectively extends the living space.

The owner considered every detail including vented cabinet doors to avoid moisture, the best quality teak wood, even platform floors to create separate living areas.  This property owner studied and has designed the layout with good feng shui principles in mind.  Lots of open space, use of mirrors, water effects, natural light and natural breezes combine to make this a most harmonious living space.
NOTE: this condo is also available for sale for only 7.9 million THB, or 50,641 per sqm. Cetus Condo, just next door and currently under construction, has only 12 units remaining for 150,000 baht per sqm. 8.2 million THB will buy you a 54.5 sqm 1 bed room unit at Cetus. Why not have a look at this property? Don't you agree it's an exceptional value at about 1/3 the price of Cetus?

This month we find Atlantis Resort Condo in Jomtien is substantially complete and residents will be moving in shortly. The building and grounds look fantastic, while the consensus is "better than expected". This resort style condo is located on Jomtien 2nd Road, with easy access to the beach and the city.

Congratulations to Blue Sky Group, as this was their first project in Pattaya after they had achieved success in Bangkok.

City Garden Tower hosts show room grand opening
Global Top Group held its show room grand opening for City Garden Tower on Pattaya 3rd Rd. The show units are well designed and utilize the space brilliantly.

Cetus Condo up to 35th floor, 58.1% project completion

Only 12 units remain in the entire 49 storey project. Prices for remaining units start from 5.85 million, or 150,000 THB per sq.m. We are authorized agents for this developer, and we also have resales.
How many cranes can you count on Pratumnak Hill?
Just last week I was assisting a lovely family relocating here from Shanghai to find a place to call home for the next 3 years or longer. Of course there were the normal requirements as to number of bed rooms, minimum space, and other needs.

The biggest challenge with this home search was that the preferred location was Pratumnak Hill, with a strong desire not to be next to a building site.
Let me tell you this was a huge challenge, as Pratumnak Hill is geographically small, and it seems as though building sites are on every corner. During our property viewings we passed several high profile projects under construction currently. 

In one afternoon, we passed six high rise projects which are currently far along with construction. This list does not include numerous low rise projects which are also under construction or buildings sites that are being cleared for other projects.
For more information about Pratumnak Hill in general click on the link highlighted in blue. 

Statement from Waterfront Suites & Residences
If you follow the Pattaya real estate market closely or live in Pattaya, it is difficult to miss press coverage regarding the approval status of this high profile project. I am impressed with the manner in which Tulip Group are dealing with the issue.

An official statement on Tulip Group's website states in part that "
Waterfront Suites and Residences is fully EIA approved and has a current building permit. The Mayor of Pattaya has publicly stated that our project was fully approved by both the City and the EIA committee and that our licenses are correct."  

The statement goes on to say that "Tulip Group is very transparent about how it conducts its business affairs and we have agreed to comply with City Hall as requested, and suspend construction of the project in order that our paperwork and construction can be verified. 
Tulip Group expects the investigation to take no longer than 8 weeks, and hope to resume construction on or before that time. We wish Tulip Group all the best for a speedy resolution to this dispute. 

Should you have any questions about any of Pattaya's off plan projects, call or stop by our office anytime.
If you missed out on buying off plan early and can't find the positioning or price that you want, check out the values below. Call Michael at +66(0)89-6185 or write to, as we have many more resales.
