Arguably, there are two primary purposes when it comes to investing.
Firstly, protecting your capital concerning its value in real terms and secondly, gaining a significant return for the future. Which factor is your primary concern depends very much on where you are in the investment time cycle and what your personal goals are? Either way, when we talk about investing in its truest sense, we speak of medium to long-term as opposed to short-term speculation.
Deciding what to invest in is probably as hard these days as it has ever been. The world is a volatile place, and there is still lots of uncertainty surrounding the Trump administration and what the real effects of Brexit will be. Volatility is not something that the markets typically enjoy although it does create opportunities for speculators to make quick returns through arbitrage potentially.
Investment properties have grown in popularity in recent years although it is far from a new phenomenon. Demand for rental accommodation is high both regarding residences due to first-time buyers struggling to get on the property ladder and for holiday accommodation as tourists are steering away from hotels. This demand obviously creates a need for supply and with it the opportunity to make good returns. Where to invest is often the next question.
The location is always vital when it comes to investment properties as purchasing in the wrong location will significantly hamper your chances of returns. You also need somewhere that has good long-term prospects, after all this is a long-term investment. You also need to be able to get quality tenants or have a management company who can do this on your behalf without charging exorbitant fees. If you can meet all these criteria, you will be very close to having a ‘perfect’ investment property.
So, if you are looking for a place to purchase an investment property you could consider somewhere such as Pattaya in Thailand. Here you have a well-established resort that is growing popularity year on year and has an excellent infrastructure with great long-term prospects. Like anywhere else in the world, finding tenants can be potentially tricky unless you decide to opt for one of the good rental guarantee concepts that are offered by some local developers.
Pattaya is a city that welcomes visitors from all around the world and although it does experience high and low seasons their effect is slowly reducing as the city has so much to offer throughout the year. This gives both developers and investors confidence that these rental guarantee concepts are built on firm foundations and are relatively safe investments. Of course, due diligence is required, but it is not hard to understand why Pattaya is so attractive.
After considering the various options that are available in the city, the New Nordic rental guarantee concepts is the most attractive. This well-established, reputable local developer has been offering the same scheme from around ten years. They offer returns of 10% p.a. for periods of between five and twenty years depending which property you purchase in Pattaya. They manage the property on your behalf taking away any potential headaches while paying the return monthly into the bank account of your choice.
The New Nordic Group have long established links
and contracts with both domestic and international tour operators who can guarantee bookings weeks and months in advance. The business model is so well designed that only low levels of occupancy are required during the low season to satisfy all liabilities and the experienced management and staff ensure that the scheme runs like clockwork.
When you look at everything that Pattaya has to offer and the great rental guarantee concept that is provided by the New Nordic Group, it is very easy to appreciate why Pattaya is so attractive to investors.
