Thailand’s property boom showing no sign of cooling down

Some developers expect the integration of ASEAN countries to generate benefits for Thailand’s property market More than 50 percent of new developers to launch projects in Thailand in recent years were from other sectors including  garments, jewellery and machinery, according to Monchai Orawongpaison, senior manager for project sales and marketing at property consultancy firm Colliers International Thailand. Many developers have amassed land over several years and are not concerned that Bangkok’s new city plan may have an impact on the potential of plots, said Monchai. The new city plan is scheduled to come into effect from May, reported the Phuket News. The economic integration of ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) countries is expected by some developers to have a positive effect on Thailand’s property market. As such, some developers are launching projects that will be completed by 2015

Thailand Property – Thailand’s property boom continues

Real Estate Bubble ?

Although the Thai real estate industry has continued growing significantly since 2008, we have not seen a real estate bubble environment manifesting. The industry seems to have learned its lessons during the 1997 financial crisis and has successfully implemented the following safeguards: The banking industry has become much more cautious providing project financing and mortgage loans.

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.

Many Real estate developers in Thailand have developed and implemented market research technologies and monitor the market closely.

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.
