Bangkok developers are moving away from Central Business District where rising land prices are hurting the overall costs. A shortage of available land in Bangkok’s central business districts has caused residential developers to move their projects far from the inner city but still close to extended and proposed mass-transit routes, The Nation reported.
According to a survey by The Nation, one of those locations is from Rattanathibet Road to Nonthaburi’s Bang Yai district, which is close to the MRT Purple Line that will run from Bang Sue to Bang Yai.

Thailand Property Outlook
Being a developing country, the cost of property in Thailand is much lower than in the more developed European markets. But, on the other hand, prices for Thai property, in general, are rising at a much faster rate.
Compared to 1997 Real estate companies are able to respond much more quickly to changes
Thailand’s property market was able to rebound from past crises and there is every reason to believe it will be able to absorb the blow of recent political tensions. The taxation situation has actually improved the conditions for purchasing property in Thailand, and if property prices do dip slightly as a result of the current situation it may actually be a good time to buy as there is a very real possibility Thailand property will regain its golden outlook soon.
As a result, the financial condition of most major housing developers in Thailand is much more robust than in the past. The development of the local bond markets and increasing domestic savings has the made the industry much less dependent on foreign funds, a significant difference from 1997.
