Quick tips to make your new condo as efficient and green as possible

 

Following our latest post on how to increase your Air Conditioner’s efficiency to keep things green in Sin-City, we decided to follow it up by giving you some other quick things you can do, not only to reduce your impact on the environment, but also to make your condo much more cost effective.

Let’s get down to some tips shall we:

 

Change to LED lights

The amount of money and energy you can save by just using LEDs is truly impressive, not only are they efficient than normal fluorescent lamps, they last much much longer, are safer and cost almost next to nothing in yearly maintenance, and this is just to name a few of the advantages! You can see all these other advantages and some pretty impressive figures regardingLED efficiency.

 

There should be no excuse not to be changing all of your lights to LEDs, specially now a days when you can find a huge arrange designs. If you ever wanted to collaborate in an environmentally friendly way, but never quite exactly know how, well look no further than your own living room! Even in Pattaya there already are a few shops specializing in LED lighting and lamps, why not start asking around eh? Here, I have already searched Google for the phrase ‘led lamps Pattaya’ .

 

You can even get creative with it and explore the newer LED bulbs that can actually be connected to your mobile phone, hell, some of these models even come with a remote control so that you can use all it’s awesome capabilities (light intensity, amount of bulbs, color, etc.. and it will only get crazier!)

 


Get a TV stream box like the Roku Box

This option is not one that comes to people naturally, but have you ever wondered how much waste is created by your home entertainment system? We might not be able to do much about the electricity consumption, after all, I don’t think I’ll convince you to start listening to music quietly am I? Instead, let me introduce you to Roku Box, an amazing little box that is already changing the way people consume entertainment world wide.

 

Just think of how much less plastic you will consume when you stop buying DVDs and CD’s: All that extra plastic and materials used (all the fuel consumption making and transporting them) all of that will be gone the second you get a Roku box. All you need is a decent internet connection and you will be ready access some 2000+ channels and an infinity of content right from your living room.

 

You can also access radio shows directly with the Roku Box, add of of this to the possibility of hooking up a terabyte of storage and you will be creating the perfect entertainment library all within these devices, no extra waste nor equipment needed!

 

You can buy the latest model of this beautiful streaming box from their official website. Meanwhile let me show you some of the features that have made the Roku Box the most popular streaming station in the market (beating huge companies like Amazon and Google by the way)

 

Features:

 

  • Fast smooth streaming
  • Send music, picture and videos from you phone or tablet directly to your TV
  • 2000+ channels in the US (this will depend on you country, but do expect to have access to thousands of options even within Thailand)
  • Headphones connection right on the remote control for personal listening (great for late night movie watching)
  • Easy and quick set-up

The new wave of Theme condo/resorts that promise to revitalize Pattaya’s real estate

The new wave of Theme condo/resorts that promise to revitalize Pattaya’s real estate

Though a big portion of Chomburi (and Pattaya in particular) real estate market  remain overdeveloped and overwhelmed there is niche of  rather playful developments that seem to be selling like hotcakes. These are the new wave of themed condos, which not only fit our holiday city rather well (what is Pattaya but one big playground right?) but also seem to be doing very well with investors thanks to their condo/resort business plan. Here we have a short list of some of the most popular of these complex, all less than a year old and ready for any potential investor to take a good look at them:

 

Grand Caribbean Condo Resort:

I mean, Jack Sparrow would provably enjoy living here. Set among a  tropical Caribbean theme this condo offers an amazing central pool decorated with a pirate ship, light houses, waterfalls, a ‘jacuzzi inside a volcano’ and tropical and lush gardens (I mean it, they actually call it a  ‘walk in jungle’ for the enjoyment of both young and old guests).

 

As its expected, all of the facilities are extremely playful (their motto ‘where holidays become homes’ does indeed apply), the pirate ships for instance come equipped with water cannons, sun decks and a chill-out lounges below deck, which basically means mom and dad can be enjoying some cocktails while the children are shooting each-other with canons… kind of perfect no?

 

Amazon condo resort:

 

What if I told you you could live in a jungle with all the comfort and facilities of a city? The Amazon Condo Resort, located in Jomtien (which also happens to be one of Pattaya’s most relaxing beaches) feaures 5 jacuzzi spots, rooftop gardens, artificial sand beaches, caves and a lagoon-style pool, much like something  Hugh Hefner would be proud about.

Completed in early 2014, this property has also proven very popular with Thai families and single people (mainly due to the fact of their small 35sqm rooms wouldn’t provide good accomodation ofr families). Much like the Grand Caribean Condo Resort, the Amazon is a fun and interactive developement where tenants can feel like they are living in a neverending holiday, as I explained before, this property also acts as both a resort and a condominium giving owners options when it comes to renting the property as a money producing investment.

 

 

As we can see these fun-oriented developments seem to be made for Pattaya, they bring something slightly different to the table which seems to be doing very well with young families (many Russians and Thais have opted for these condos) and singles alike (nothing like a bachelor’s pad with a pirate ship parked right outside in the pool no?).

 

Also, there’s one particular factor regarding their business plan which also helps explain their popularity as an investment option. As you may have noticed, all of these developments are both labeled as a ‘Resort’ as-well as a ‘Condominium’. What this means for investors is that, in case you buy some units here, the managing company has a big interest in keeping your room clean and in top shape, after all, they have the possibility to rent it on the daily bases as any hotel would do. This said,  as the owner you also have the power to  rent your property on the long term. This is pretty much a win win situation: you can rent your property daily while demand is high but at the same time you can be looking for tenants that want to stay for longer periods of time, and be honest,  which smart investors won’t like options?

Why is Naa Jomtien (South Jomtien) growing in popularity with investors and developers?

Naa Jontien

General information:

One of the main things that you will notice as you drive down Jomtien beach road towards the south Jomtien (or Naa Jomtien as it is known in Thai) is that it doesn’t quite look like the rest of Pattaya. Around this area (for the time being at least) pink-light bars, short skirted women and go-go bars are not the norm. You will certainly find hotels, guest houses, massage shops (that’s right, normal massages!), restaurants and small shops to drink beer at, but certainly no prostitution or your standard ‘dirty farang’ crowd.
