How’s the property market in Pattaya?
The market relies heavily on foreign buyers and is therefore vulnerable to the economic climate in other countries, for example Russia and China.
We saw a decline in oil prices some years ago, which in turn affected the Russian economy badly and weakened the Ruble. This had a direct impact on the Pattaya property market.
Places like Hua Hin and Bangkok are less vulnerable in that sense, as locals buy here as well.
What are the benefits of buying in Pattaya compared to Bangkok?
You have access to the beach, property is cheaper on average, buying a villa or beach house is not rare among foreigners.
There are a number of areas, like Jomtien, which gets increasingly popular, where prices are lower and there’s less hustle and bustle.
