Thai Resort Properties

A recent article published on the Asia Property Report website suggests that demand for second homes and holiday properties remains high in popular Thai island destinations like Phuket and Koh Samui.

According to real estate agents and analysts operating in Southeast Asia, the range of properties on offer in the Thailand’s top holiday locations is expanding and diversifying all the time. What began 20 years ago as a market reserved for wealthy individuals building stand-alone high-end villas and gated residential developments has since diversified to offer everything from a 10-bedroom beach mansion to a two-week vacation club ownership.

“Buyers looking for a holiday home in Thailand can now choose a property that best suits their usage and investment needs,” said Jules Kay, Managing Editor of Property Report Magazine. “Low rise condominiums and apartments are popular with couples, while families often loo for a villa because it affords them more space and private facilities. Professional management companies are available to take care of the properties when the owners are away and local agents also help attract rental guests to generate yields for owners on top of capital appreciation.”

A number of new projects are either launching or completing on Phuket and Koh Samui in 2014. These include including multi-villa developments, high-end condominiums and branded hotel residences. Stand alone villas are also being added to the islands’ inventory, giving rental guests an ever wider variety of choices for an exclusive private holiday.

The sources of investment capital into Thai resort property are also broadening with new nationalities entering the market every year. International buyers from countries such as Australia and Russia have become regular investors, while regional investors from places like Singapore are also now considering holiday home investments as they expand their property portfolios.

“People should buy dynamic property in irreplaceable locations,” says Bill Barnett, managing director of regional hospitality consultants C9 Hotelworks. ”Even though Asia is booming, it is still relatively cheap compared with other parts of the world and in destinations like Bali, Indonesia and Phuket in Thailand, which are becoming more urban, investors are widening their search and looking for something new. There’s a lot of liquidity in the market but also a lot of volatility.”
