The thought of moving to Bangkok is naturally an exciting prospect for anyone. However, relocating to a new home may well also be one of the most stressful experiences expatriates face. Finding the perfect place to live is obviously not a simple undertaking, and given the often tight timeline, a lot of pressure can be taken off with the support of real estate agents and relocation services. When family is involved, it becomes even more complex.
Agents help negotiate rental fee, furniture lease and generally assist in clarifying legal issues. Make sure that when you enlist the aid of a real estate or relocation agent, you give clear instructions in regard to what locality and price range you're looking for. Give clear requirements and expectations and ask for alternatives, if you are only given a few options.
When you first arrive in Bangkok, or while you're property hunting, you might require temporary accommodation. Hotels and serviced apartments are widely available, and the type of accommodation you select will depend on your individual needs and preferences.
