Locations with highest property growth
Prosperity – in terms of infrastructure, employment, or education – is the key factor triggering property seekers to inhabit in such locations, supplied by developers whose interests also lie in promising areas. Bangkok, the bustling capital city, is where developers compete relentlessly for a plot of vacant land, or an old building which can be refurbished into a brand-new residence, to build a condominium project or a housing estate depending on the location’s setting. According to DDproperty Property Index, Bangkok property market has been analysed and summarized as follows:
1. Watthana District remains the most sought-after location for condominium development
2. Lat Phrao District is found to have the most townhouse projects
3. Khlong Sam Wa District consists a large number of single-house housing estates
Though these three districts are among developers favourite locations to launch new project, which in rental market means a higher number of interested property seekers, be concerned that you have to compete with a great number of investors as well.

Techniques to quickly earn rental profits from houses and condominiums

As we have understood that “Location” helps contribute our long-term profits, next, we need to consider some technical aspects which strengthen our profitability in real estate rental market.
1. Choose houses or a condos promising for increased value in the future. This can be a condominium near a mass transit line or major department stores, or in the form of mixed-use development where residence, office space, and retails merge in one project.
2. The property needs to look new and clean especially secondhand properties purchased for rents. Old buildings decay through time and it’s your job to check the electrical wiring, bathroom sanitary, or even the wallpaper condition – in order to fetch a satisfactory rent price. A little affordable decoration could be added to achieve increased profits.
3. Choose the property size concerning the needs of your prospective tenants. Thai citizens often look for a Studio or one-bedroom, while foreign expats normally prefer a two-bedroom, or in some case a single house, to accommodate their migrated family.
“Investment” is always risk-bound, but with thorough consideration on important aspects and some techniques adding values to the investment, the profits can be achieved without much difficulty.
