Thailand Property – Phuket rental market shows healthy demand

Mr. Nattha said that the variety of buyers this year are found in Phuket, for instance Asians and Russians. Russia is also threatening to overwhelm Europe as Phuket residential buyers. One reason for the dramatic increase in numbers is simple, the severe weather in the Euro-zone, notably Eastern Europe, has shaken up many people about the need to relocate to safer, better homes.  The busiest time is between October to April when the weather in Europe is really cold.

Another reason is that it’s never been easier for the international tourists to get to Phuket. There are many charter airlines now run direct flights between many big and small cities in various parts of the world to Phuket. Previously, Russians were visiting places like Turkey and Egypt, but due to the political unrest in those areas, and the cost being the same, they have turned to come to Phuket.
