Exactly Lin Aye Naing... Prices. You can compare the rent or sale prices, Yangon in particular is far more expensive than US in general. Get the facts right. I don't know where u live or what u do for living. I'm real estate business and that's what I do professionally. At least I know what I'm talking about.
I don't post random unintelligent  posts. Ppl who read your post pick up on you. It's quite sad that u r racist and fial to recognize your motherland as Myanmar. Pls don't think I'm Chinese. I'm not!
Please don't take it personally. Have a wonderful day Lin Aye Niaing.

Hmm! How could someone stated 'Buy or rent the house/ condo is the same as US.' 
1. In Myanmar, you need to pay yearly advance payment for rental.
2. In US, you pay one month security deposit and pay monthly rent.

3. Majority Myanmar property owners don't have mortgages and transaction take place in cash usually pay up within 6 months to 2 years. That's including high end property cost $20 mil, 30 mil or more.
4. In US, you get mortage from Banks and pay up for your home within 15 to 30 years is norm.

So please tell me where is the similarity between Myanmar and US when it's come to real estate.
It is important to provide accurate info to someone who need help. If you don't know the subject, it's better to say nothing.

Diethelm Travel Myanmar has set up their business in Myanmar for a few years already. Look into it. I don't know how true that you need local partner to set up your business here. Time has chaned dramatically and Myanmar government encourage foreign investor to come here and set up their own business with or without local partner.  There are many small, medium and large foreign companies have already set up the offices independently in Myanmar in various sectors.
if I have a chance to find out for you, I will.

Hi Alicia,
Victoria Hospital is the best Yangon thus far and Pan Hlaing hospital is very far. I would recommend Dr May Thu Myo Nyunt( OBGYN). She speaks fluent English. She is the most sought after OBGYN in Yangon. If you send your email to me To  winston[at] I will give you her mobile ph #. Just make an appointment to see her and discuss your situation. The best of luck to u.

Winston Paing posted on the thread Labour Law in Myanmar on the Myanmar forum

Hi Tony,
I'm not sure of tenure service by duration of employment. If I have to guess, it will be 3 to 6 months of probation period before getting a permanent position in the company.

Mutual respect is imperative. A very few expats are  arrogant. If they fail to learn the culture and the ppl of the country they are in, they will bound to have problems sooner or later. Myanmar ppl are nice and helpful by nature but neither stupid nor naive. Make no mistake about it. Someone without proper attitude will not go far in life. That's apply to anyone, anywhere in the world, not just in Myanmar.

Hi bmwf1kin,
Renting the house or condo, normal practice is charging one month rent as service fees by government register real estate companies and general services companies to the renters. But there are street brokers(SB),  part time brokers(PTB) out there willing to do it for free. So they charge the home owners one month rent and cut 50:50 deal on any addition make on top of original asking rent. That means you will end up paying more.
For instance,
Owners Asking Rent: $2000 (* off course! This figure don't exists for you)
Your rented for: $2500 (* this figure is what your brokers say is fair rental price)
SB or PTB get: $2000
                         $$2000+$3000= $5000
Owner get: $2000X12= $24000
Bonus.         $250X12= $3000

This is Win Win situation for home owner and (SB, PTB) but you.

Being a real estate agent is not just finding the right place but also being able negotiate the rent, knowledgable( understanding the cureent market and trend, enable to  logically predict future market ), making sure with owners documents are legit, etc..
Now the decision is yours and choose your agent carefully and wisely.
Best regards,
