Chiang Mai has a relatively small property industry compared with other popular expat locations in Thailand, but there are some professional services for real estate needs here. The city has more than two dozen agencies–both Thai and foreigner–who specifically cater to English-speaking buyers, and there are many more, including individual freelancers who operate and work within the larger Thai market.
They can help you with buying, selling, renting, managing (while you are away) and servicing. Each has a modest selection of properties in their portfolio covering a range of prices. The following are some recommended real estate agents in Chiang Mai, and they can suggest a lawyer for contracts. We do suggest you vet your agents and lawyers prudently, however, since there is no real regulator and some people find the legal support here in Thailand somewhat inadequate.
