With people earning more and more money across the world, disposable income has never been higher. With all that money, new doors open that had previously been shut. But in my opinion, there’s only there’s only one option. Buying a second home. Obviously. But why would you want to buy a home down the street when you can buy one in a picturesque getaway. Take thailand for example.
After my wife and I decided that we were going to look for a holiday home, we quickly settled on thailand. The people, the culture, the weather, they were all huge plus’s for us, and after viewing some of the properties, we knew we were going to make the right choice and we haven’t looked back since.
A google search later and we had a huge list of properties in ko samui to browse. One website that really caught our attention though was homeaway.com the villas listed here are beautiful and no other site really compared.
The site was easy to navigate and had a whole range of properties ranging from the grandiose, to the small and comfortable and everything inbetween. We had no trouble applying filters and within an hour, we knew what properties we wanted to see
We flew out within a couple of weeks and after viewing several properties, we settled on one in Koh Samui, a beautiful little island just off the coast. Clear blue waters, relatively low population and blue skies are what we had in mind and that’s exactly what we found.
My advice to anybody looking for property abroad is to take the plunge. You can sit around all day looking at a screen, but if you want to make that dream a reality, you have to go ahead and book a flight. It might seem scary, but it’s totally worth it!
