When you are moving to Bangkok and have children, you will want to pay extra attention to where you live as you need to consider the school your children will attend. You may want to get an apartment near an international school in Bangkok to ensure they get the best education possible. Below are some things you will need to consider when choosing your apartment to help you and your family settle in quickly and get used to living your lives in the Big Mango.
Choose Your School First
If you send your children to a prestigious international school, you will want to choose the school they will attend first before looking for an apartment. If your chosen school is close to public transport links such as the BTS or MRT, you can look for apartments along these routes which may be suitable for you and your family. If the school is not close to these links, you will need to look in the school’s local area.
Decide How Much To Spend
Whether you want to buy an apartment or rent one, you will need to work out your budget and how much you can afford. The amount you can spend will dictate the luxury of the apartment you can choose and the area you can live in, as prices can vary quite drastically.
Catering To Your Needs
You will also need to think about what the apartment needs to have so you and your family can live comfortably. You will need to consider the number of bedrooms you require, which way it is facing, and the amenities it offers, with some of the common facilities including:
- Maid Service
- Laundry Service
- Swimming Pool
- Convenience Store
- Secure Parking
- 24 Hour Security
Prioritise the important amenities for you, and then you can start searching for your perfect family apartment; and you may want to consider using a property agent.
Consider Using A Property Agent For Your Search
When you know what you want, you can save yourself a lot of searching ad running around looking at different apartments if you use the services of a reputable property agent. You do not have to pay for their service, and if you successfully rent or buy a property with them, the seller will pay them a commission. Give them as much information about what you want and in what location, and you can make it a much simpler task to find the perfect family apartment.
