Bon Appétit! Thailand

by Kijner & Sons International Realty

One of the many pleasures of living abroad is trying out local delicacies and specialties.

As it is often the case in Asia, sampling traditional food is really easy, not expensive and a true experience for the senses.

Walking in the many soi of Bangkok, Thailand for example, you will find dozen of street vendors selling traditional Thai food. If you’re on the go, just grab some meat skewers with a glass of freshly squeezed tropical juice. For lunchtime, just seat at a street table and try out a fried-rice, a pad Thai (a dish of stir-fried rice noodles) or a Tom Yum soup.

In a more traditional restaurant, best is to share various dishes with friends. For drinks, just try the local Singha beer, a healthy fruit cocktail or some fresh coconut water for the younger ones.

As true epicureans we would like to share with you some of the restaurants we heart for both their quality and atmosphere. Of course, we will also welcome your own suggestions.

Bon appétit!


This week, you can try the restaurant “Balee Laos”

186/8 Soi Sukhumvit 16 Sukhumvit Rd. Klongtoey

Nana, Bangkok, Thailand

BTS: Asok

MRT: Sukhumvit

Should I Buy a Home Now?

by KIJNER & SONS INTERNATIONAL REALTY

I'm often asked if this is a good time to buy a home. Some clients are concerned that home prices may fall further than they have already. They are assuming that the best course of action is to wait for the bottom in the market and then buy. The problem with this approach is that you don't know where the bottom is until you see it in the rear view mirror, meaning until you've missed it!

Home prices are one factor in determining your cost of ownership, but so are interest rates and financing availability. Even though interest rates have gone up in the last six months, they are still near historic lows. Since your monthly mortgage payment is a combination of paying down your principal and paying the interest owed, if home prices come down a little further but interest rates up, it could cost you even more to service a mortgage on an identical home!

While a home is a major investment, it is also the center of your personal life. It's important to live in a home that reflects your taste and values, yet is within your financial "comfort zone." To that end, it may be more important to lock in today's relatively low interest rates and low home prices, rather than to hope for a further break in prices in the future.

Please give me a call if I can be of any assistance in determining how much home you can afford in today's market.
