Most expats who live in Thailand buy a condo. The reason for this is twofold. Firstly the cost of maintaining the property is very low and secondly the paperwork involved is far less than trying to buy a house or a villa. The condo market in Thailand is also very good which means that you would not have much difficulty leasing the property when not being used. Many foreigners do rent out their condo on one year leases while they are back in the US or UK. This not only allows the person to make a profit but also to pay for the upkeep of the property.
