The lowest occupancy, at 30%, is in the Rama III-Riverside area, along with the lowest yield at 8.6%.

“The data we have doesn’t show any signs of oversupply at the moment. However, we have to keep an eye on unfinished units, which might affect a number of supply in the market,” he said. “If the new condo units keep coming up in a big amount, the oversupply could be really occurred in two years time.”

As reported in AREA’s research, Ramkhamhaeng was the location with the highest occupancy rate at 91 per cent, followed by Ratchada-Lad Phrao (86 per cent), Phahon Yothin-Phaya Thai (83 per cent), Sukhumvit Soi 1-69 (80 per cent) and Sukhumvit Soi 71-103 (79 per cent). The lowest occupancy was in the Rama III-Riverside area at 30 per cent.

The highest total yield was in Chaeng Watthana-Rarm Intra at 12.7%, followed by Phahon Yothin-Phaya Thai (12.6%), Sukhumvit 71-103 (12.2%), Ratchada-Lat Phrao (11.9%) and Ramkhamhaeng (11.7%). The lowest yield was in Rama III-Riverside at 8.6%.

The highest price appreciation was in Chaeng Watthana at 6.2% and the lowest in Rama III-Riverside at 1.8%. The highest rental return was in Phahon Yothin-Phaya Thai at 7.5% a year and the lowest in Pin Klao-Rama VIII at 5.4%.
