Bangkok real estate overview 2016

Bangkok real estate

Thailand has the second biggest economy of Southeast Asia and its capital, Bangkok, is one of the largest cities in the world. With unique sights of monuments and Thai architecture, numerous skyscrapers and a dynamic urban development, Bangkok presents an attractive landscape for real estate developers and investors.

Bangkok  is the third most populous city in ASEAN, with a population of more than 9 million people expected to grow to 11 million by 2025. Its rapid development and business and touristic attractiveness pushes numerous property developers to create new residential and office buildings in the city.

So the most dynamic districts of Bangkok see a flurry of towers pop up. The city center, riverside districts and the main transportation axis of Sukhumvit and Silom/Sathorn burgeon with buildings that create a sharp yet inviting contrast with the old city’s constructions, monuments and temples.

The state of real estate in Bangkok in 2016

The last few years have seen a mild economic growth in Thailand which now impacts the real estate market slightly. Yet, the Bangkok real estate market remains resilient through both residential and office segments. New condominiums and office space are entering the market and prices remain on the rise, pulled by a strong local demand.

Though the continued economic frailty will probably further impact the market, residential property developers remain confident that the demand will remain strong in the coming months and years. New condominiums are being built aggressively to satisfy the middle income demand.

In the following series of reports, Knight Frank Thailand presents the driving forces behind the property market of Bangkok in 2016. With details on both the offer and demand sides, prices, occupancy and outlook for the coming and years for both residential and office segments, these reports will provide a fine analysis to those involved in the Bangkok real estate market and people interested in buying or selling property in the city.
