Tranio case: buying an investment property in Phuket
Over the past few decades, Thailand has become a reference of a paradise for living and leisure. White sandy beaches, the azure waters of the Indian Ocean, tropical flora and incredible natural landscapes together with the ancient history and friendly temper of the locals are contrasted with the daily life of the residents of the northern countries. This is why every year more and more people from Europe, Russia and the USA choose Thailand as their place of rest and temporary or permanent living.
Life in Thailand is associated with a choice of life balance, awareness and being in a permanent resource. It is most often chosen by people who are not tied to an office, but who have a remote income and the ability to independently build a community around themselves, choosing the most comfortable place to live in order to develop their own potential.
Thailand is a choice for the heart and for investment income
The Investment property business is one of Irina’s main interests, which she has been developing for many years. She is an expert in this field, having successfully completed a number of business transactions and is able to assess the prospects in a short time. When she started working with Tranio, the client’s assets already included rental and residential property in Russia, the United Arab Emirates and the EU, and the task was to add Asian countries to her personal list of property cases.
Irina made her choice not by chance, but because of the global economic and social trend of «turning to the East». In addition to investing, Irina is a professional astrologer and works with the subtle matter of the soul and energy relationships. During her first visit to Thailand with her husband, Irina fell in love with the nature and energy of this country. She was particularly impressed by the fact that the world can be so colourful and open, but at the same time so comfortable and high-tech. Thailand is a combination of natural and perfect from the point of view of human progress.
From an investment perspective, the Thai market is now very attractive due to high rental yields. There are several rental schemes where the owner’s income per annum can range from 7% to 15%, which is significantly higher than in many other countries. If you invest in a property which is under construction, the output value of the property is consistently 20-30% higher. After the global pandemic, the resort market in Thailand is only gaining momentum and the flow of tourists from different countries is expected to increase in the future.

A lucky coincidence
After returning from Thailand in April 2023, Irina and her husband decided to take part in the online conference «How to earn on property investments in Phuket» by Tranio experts. The conference covered topics such as: development prospects for Phuket Island, investing in condominiums and villas, rental yield schemes and the expected tourism boom. Irina immediately saw the benefits of investing in Phuket property and cooperating with Tranio experts. During the conference, she actively participated in the discussion of the construction outlook and asked many questions to the regional manager in Thailand. The clincher was that Irina won tickets to Phuket and back — the way Tranio webinar organisers encourage the most active participants. According to Irina, it all seemed to be a series of successful coincidences that led her for buying a property in Thailand.
Professional assistance by a Tranio expert
Immediately after the conference, the investor received a consultation from Natalia Emelianenko, a Tranio property expert in Thailand. Natalia is an investment market specialist and has been working with Tranio since 2022. Natalia has an active lifestyle and a structured approach to work: she understands numbers and analysis, follows market trends and can tell the client where it is better to invest and what risks are possible, as she also invests in property. The expert follows business strategies that allow her to optimise the time of transactions and work with clients and foreign partners. Natalia has personally met with all the developers during her business trips to Phuket.
Irina immediately noted that working with Natalia was pleasant and productive. After the first video call, Natalia provided the investor with a structured table of all possible investment properties and commented on each one in terms of profitability. A few days were enough for Irina and her husband to choose the ideal property suitable for their investment goals and make the necessary deposit to book the property remotely.
Additionally, the investor noted the simplicity and convenience of transferring money for property with the help of Tranio’s financial specialists: Irina made the transaction and the money was credited to the developer’s account in Thailand the same day.
A couple of weeks later, Natalia, during her stay in Thailand, personally visited the object under construction and showed it to Irina via video link. The investor noted that it is rare to meet with such full support from a property broker. It took just over a month from Irina’s participation in the conference to the completion of the transaction.
Apartments in the Kamala beach area in Phuket
Irina chose an apartment in a residential complex with four swimming pools, a rooftop terrace and a gym 100 metres from Kamala Beach on Phuket Island. The project is expected to be completed in 2023. The apartment is decorated in warm wood shades, a feature of the residence is a panoramic bathroom. The lobby and public spaces are decorated with natural stone, and the territory of the complex is surrounded by tropical flora. The roofs of the two main buildings are public spaces with a swimming pool and bars and are connected by a bridge. By all parameters, the project is a profitable and promising investment with a likely return of up to 10%. Investors can live in their own residence for several weeks a year.
Kamala Beach is located in the central part of Phuket Island, just north of the famous resort beach of Patong. Kamala is considered a place of secluded relaxation, less affected by civilisation than other tourist resorts in Phuket, which makes it popular among tourists with families. At the same time, Kamala is only 40 minutes by taxi from Phuket International Airport and has all the necessary infrastructure whithin the village itself.

Phuket has a seasonality that is clearly divided into two periods: the rainy season, which lasts from April to August, and the dry season from September to March. Throughout the year, there is a high tourist demand, which guarantees a good return of investment.
Phuket’s investment potential is considered one of the most prospective in Southeast Asia. Factors include: high profitability, low property taxes, a stable Thai currency and well-developed infrastructure. Additionally, property prices are attractive and Thailand’s status as a friendly country means there are no additional documentation requirements.
Further plans of the investor in Thailand
Irina’s main plans for the purchased property are to receive a stable high income from it, relevant to the expectations. Since Irina is confident in the success of the profit from the purchased apartments, the investor’s plans already include the possible purchase of more apartments for rent, as well as, probably, their own housing for family holidays and stays. Irina plans to continue cooperation with Tranio to purchase properties in Thailand. Our team is always happy to provide assistance and support in the selection process for our clients and we look forward to continuing our cooperation with Irina.
