The best place to retire in Thailand is the stunning city of Chiang Mai. It is very easy to rent or buy property, and you are spoilt for choice.
There are so many different accommodation options. Whether you choose to rent or buy depends on your personal financial situation. We recommend renting first, until you have found your ideal home, as there are so many factors and personal preferences that you should consider, before committing yourself long term.
The most popular options are condominiums (apartments), where you can get full title when you buy. Villa’s and houses in enclosed private villages are also popular, however the land is often on leasehold (where you own the house or villa, but the land title is on long term lease). Many have also chosen to live as a local in the suburbs.
We have chosen to live in a low rise upmarket condominium called Twin Peaks. If you decide to come and join our family here to experience the real life as an Expat, you would also stay in one of the wonderful apartments in Twin Peaks as part of the package, as well as some time at Plover Cove Luxury Villas.
This is well described by local Estate Agency, Perfect Homes as: “Flaunting understated modern-contemporary design influences from the Land of the Rising Sun and in spite of its now decade-old existence, Twin Peaks remains not only one of the best managed and well cared for pieces of real estate in the entire municipality but also represents one of the pet-friendly condos in Chiang Mai while occupying a superlative position in the very midst of the city’s Central Business District.
Tucked down a small, private and undisturbed soi [lane] off Chang Klan Road in the company of Peaks Garden and Peaks Avenue condos, Twin Peaks really does feel a world away from the bustling urban metropolis beyond yet is mere steps from the epicenter of Chiang Mai’s commercial and financial heartland providing ready access to every possible amenity and convenience. ” https://perfecthomes.co.th/twin-peaks-condominium-chiangmai/
