Thailand’s Property Market in Previous Years

Thailand’s property market has been in a slow but consistent upward trend for over a decade now. The main reason is the increasing number of foreigners that visit and live in Thailand.

Around 88,000 foreigners applied for work permits in Q2 2018 in Bangkok alone and the number continues to rise. To put it in some context, in Q1 2015, 78,000 foreigners applied for work permits. That’s an increase of 10,000 expats per quarter, or 40,000 yearly.

A better economic outlook, higher take-up, and occupancy rates have resulted in this upward trend. Still, the market performance differs much between cities.

For example, Bangkok and Chiang Mai have experienced higher growths, while places like Cha Am, Hua Hin, Khao Yai, and Pranburi have seen slower growth, or even stagnated. Continue reading Thailand Property Market Outlook 2020: A Complete Overview
