5 Golden Locations
The real estate market’s slowdown, caused by contracting economy and high household debt in 2015, had lowered consumer purchasing power – especially in medium and low-end segments – for nearly two years. However, the first quarter of 2017 saw a greater number of supplies year-on-year, and a higher property price index in residential projects resulted from higher land prices (2016-2019) adjusted by Treasury Department. In other words, the market is shifting to an upward trend, and areas which had experienced rapid price growth in the past two years belong to these five locations as follows:

BTS Green Line has increased property prices especially in Chatuchak and Phra Khanong

Factors Boosting Property Price Index
A sudden growth of property prices in these five locations is due to many developments from the public sector, particularly the expansion of mass transit lines, and the growth of office building market. In the first half of 2017, the total rented space in Bangkok’s office buildings is 143,000 square metre, a close figure to the previous year’s. However, Bangkok’s office building market in the second half is expected to show a significant growth, especially in premium buildings which now have the vacancy rate less than 7%, implying a strong demand for offices with high quality. A healthy office market will support the growth of property market in all the five locations, meanwhile, the BTS Green Line’s expansions (Mochit-Saphan Mai-Kukot and Bearing-Samut Prakan) will benefit Chatuchak and Phra Khanong Zones in particular.
