More than 50 condos, townhouses, villas and land parcels will be up for auction when a local duo launches the Pattaya Property Auctions at the Holiday Inn Pattaya June 16.

Local auctioneer John Collingbourne and media man Paul Strachan announced their new real estate marketing company May 14. They said the intent is to create another marketing channel for property developers, assisting them to clear out slow-selling stock.

Strachan said there are more than 30,000 properties on the market in Pattaya and that buyers are “somewhat spoiled for choice.” Partners include Matrix Development, Global Top Group and Powerhouse Development and the Nova Group.

Strachan and Collingbourne state they have worked with developers to guarantee the very best price so that potential buyers can be assured of a genuine bargain.

A pdf catalog of available properties will be available at pattayapropertyauctions .com after May 25, detailing unit size, location and developer. Potential buyers will also be able to arrange a viewing prior to the auction.

Strachan noted that the auction is private and registration requires a deposit of 50,000 baht, which will be refunded if no purchase is made. Winning bidders will see their deposit applied toward the parcels they purchase.
