The number of prospective home-buyers visiting residential projects in Bangkok fell by 20 per cent last week because of the red-shirt rally, a survey by The Nation has found.

Business Housing Association president Issara Boonyong said that most home-buyers were afraid of violence arising from the rally, so they delayed visits to development sites near the demonstration.

Issara, who is also managing director of Kanda Property, which is developing residential projects at Rama II and Pracha-Uthid, said the number of customers visiting his company’s projects dropped from the usual 50 per site to about 40.
