Koh Samui House for Sale
Over the past five years Koh Samui has proved to be a top competitor, not only in terms of resorts but also with regard to property offerings.
Property investors looking into the residential market are now provided with a wide range of appealing options, many of which offer the exclusivity that other of Southeast Asia’s islands have begun to lose. In fact, buyers on Samui are currently enjoying a prime opportunities to dip into the island’s real estate market as sellers adjust to world market changes that have made way for more negotiable deals.
Residential options on Koh Samui have become increasingly diverse and revenue has also been allotted to providing residents with eco-friendly features and beach-front amenities. Foreign and local investors have a extensive range of attractive locales to choose from. The northern and southern beaches of the island, such as Lamai and Chaweng, offer long-term residents easy access to restaurants, hospitals, and shopping districts. These popular areas also come with a price premium for investors looking into resale in the future. More secluded areas can also still be found around the island with picturesque settings and without the hustle of incoming tourists. The homes on offer range in price as well as design and can include private pools, walled-in gardens, and the ever-popular verandas overlooking the island’s sandy beaches.
One factor for new investors to consider is the recent tsunami-free label Koh Samui has received. Due to its location within the Gulf of Thailand, as well as being bordered by Thailand’s peninsula and Malaysia, a natural barrier has shielded the island when past earthquakes have created tsunamis. This is a unique selling point for developers on Samui and another reason for people to invest in the island’s property market.
Holiday villa rentals have also become very popular choice on Koh Samui and allow for the same service as a resort while still maintaining the exclusivity of a private home. Renting their private villa allows residents to keep the home-market turning while also enjoying yields when away. While the villa market was once mainly reserved for high net worth individuals, new options such as smaller residences and condominiums for those with a price constraint are now also available.
The constant flow of investors has created a consistent turnover rate. With its easy access airport and exotic landscape it’s no wonder this island has been seeing a positive move in its property market. New investments and a diverse real estate supply offer a micro-economic reflection of Southeast Asia's optimistic market outlook for the future.
