Buying land after crisis is over

We were in the market for land at a good price anyways

But I would imagine after this crisis, there will be some decent sales on land

I feel bad a bit thinking like that in these times

But land in Ao's village is very expensive so maybe someone selling it at a reduced rate isn't getting hurt

I guess either way they need to sell it

Dont feel bad, I'm thinking the same...(But in Aust) .or we are both just pricks.....55

I wouldn't buy right now...........and if Thailand is anything like PI people get really silly about this stuff and just about give land way.

But my guess is that the Chinese will come in and grab prime land in SEA

I can't see that happening here...Thais know the value of their land very well and don't give it up outside of the family without a decent price...besides, people in the villages are very used to hunkering down and living cheaply for long stints at a time....

and the curve on this virus is flattening out pretty darned well here atm...only 33 reported new cases here announced today...so that boat may have already sailed

I guess Thai's are a bit smarter when it comes to the land, I have seen some dumb shit in PI with land sales and the MIL has brought some bargains.

Even thou the curve has flattened Im sure some people are hurting.

Do Thai's borrow from banks much for property?

Thais are more likely to put prices UP to compensate for their losses during C19. Different mindset.

Rural Thais who own land will often borrow against holdings in time of need and rates are very low.

There is nothing wrong with picking up property at the bottom of the market, just hard to read when that is.

I don't know about LOS market so I wish you good luck Paulie.

Here in Aust. I have been thru 7 booms and busts including "The Recession we had to have".

There are all sorts of figures being bandied around here at the moment. I think it is going to be all over the place, different losses in different places and of course it will depend on how long it goes before business gets back to normal.

General consensus seems to be outer suburbs of major cities will drop about 20% Inner city units will suffer from an over supply and could loose even more.

One of the things I always told people, any mistake in real estate is only a matter of time to correct, so if you buy when you think the market has hit bottom but it drops another 5 % it doesn't matter, as long as you bought the right place for you and your looking at it long term. 5% can be recovered in 6 months but will this property still be available then.

A lot depends on whether you are looking to make a quick dollar, or are looking long term to have something you may want to stay in forever. Kind of like the difference between a hot lady of the night, and someone you might want as a wife for long term. Life changes and you have to accept the lows as well as the highs. My whole life has been like that. I've bought property high and sold low, but only to adjust to life changes with career and my two ex wives. Financially, I took a hit, but I came out smelling like a rose over the long term. I can always see the bright side of life.

Ray Dalio is rated as one of the top hedge fund investors of all time. My guess is that he instructed the interviewers that he would not provide investment advice, so you need to form your own views. He pushes the difficulty of timing markets, the cost of being in cash (i.e. negative real return), but is categorical that we are going into a long depression, and a major (and uncertain) redistribution of wealth.

If he is right, property opportunities may be here for a while. Ultimately, debt and interest payments wont be "forgiven" forever. Although, I am not sure if much of the property in encumbered in Thailand, but there will be property with owners outside of Thailand that will need to repatriate their cash.

^I liked how he said it's "dangerous" to say anything nice about China... gave me a chuckle...

I am finding that the "older" experts on economics are much more going down the long term depression route... and the "youngsters" seem to be espousing a quick v-shaped recovery.... hmmm.. I wonder why...

I like his thoughts on investing in education too... rather than seeing it as a budget item...

Not in the village though....
My wife's village is a bit different in that you can't buy less than 10rai(and I think I've only seen 10rai once, all a lot bigger)

It is one of the best areas for rice so not many small parcels of land for sale

It's really simple, with age comes wisdom and experience. the older guys have seen the traps and pitfalls before.

The young guns have only seen one setback in a long time of prosperity, and it recovered reasonably quickly. So they ignore all the older warning signs, keep the blinkers on and talk the talk about V curve recovery etc.

One of the greatest in USA and the world, is Warren Buffet, a very humble older gent. He and his wife still live in their 3 bedroom house on a farm out in the boon docks, no fancy mansions for them they are very down to earth people and give away most of his earnings.

So far he has done very little, sold off 1% of 3 of his holdings in different industries, only because of regulations, he had got above the 10%

The really interesting thing is he is raising cash in big loads, even though he has massive cash reserves.

So it seems he knows that cash is going to be king and the market is/has a long way to fall then he will step in and pick up the pieces when the time is right. He seems to be loading his guns and a cannon. Maybe a major target in sight.

And he's also a bit of a pervert 5555
