To help potential buyers out we have compiled a list of questions that includes some of the more obvious ones for house hunters plus quite a few other questions that might not spring to mind during your meetings and calls with your local Hua Hin real estate agent yet the moment you are sat back in the car or hang up the telephone it will pop into your head by which time it is too late and you’ll need to call back or make a new appointment to clarify the details of your query relating to the property.
