Types of investment in Thailand

The typical performance of Thailand is 5.13% compared to 5.02% of Japan. Profits can be gained by selecting the type of investment you wish to venture in the country.

1)      Capital gain

Basically, newly opened condominiums are sold even if its construction is not yet finished. Such act is known as “pre-built.” The developers commence on selling prior to the construction and sell in several divided periods after. The price will add up during the time it goes by way of sale stage as well as the price will grow by 20%, while there is still construction going on. For example, to get capital gains in the final period, tourists buy a condo room during the first phase of sales. It is notable that purchasing a property in a foreign country prior to completion asks for courage. Though, you may purchase it at a lower price, which lets you experience a real estate investment.

2)      General leasing

The typical earnings of newly built room in condominiums is about 4% in Bangkok, which is in close tie with Japan, who made 3-4% rate. The rooms are leased to foreigners in Thai, and Japanese in general period or a long term. Basically, property owners get to pay the management company in 5% to 10% of the house-rent.

3)      Service-apartment and Service-hotel Leasing

With the use of Airbnb and agoda system, tourists get to enjoy leasing in a short period of time. Such is known as the private resident. There is an occupancy rate of 50% and yield rate of about 10%, whether there is a change in property condition, the way of management and location. Also, the fee payable to the developers about 25% to 30%.


It is necessary to find a new property which are well serviced. In Thailand, the real estate market maintains a strong ground, despite the poor economic strength. Although the rates for owning a property is increasing, it is still lower to what the Europe real estate market offers.
