Investment Property In Thailand

Investment property in Thailand is starting to attract investors from around the world due to the low entry prices and stunning locations.

Exotic Thailand is Asia’s top tourist destination and offers a world class tourist industry at affordable prices, making it a magnet for visitors, re-locators and property investors alike. In many key locations in Thailand, the local economy relies heavily on tourism and increased property investment in these locations is now good news for domestic economic growth and good capital returns.

Once an exotic long haul destination, Thailand is now also a sophisticated tourist destination with a universal appeal.

For thousands of people who have worked in Asia for many years, Thailand is a very attractive retirement destination, in which the living environment will feel familiar.

Retirement visas are available for foreigners over 50 years of age.

Thailand has good schools, an efficient health care system and it is seen as a friendly country in which to live or visit.

Thailand offers gorgeous mountains, dense forests and stunning beaches, a tropical climate and cities teeming with culture and colour which draw visitors back each year.

Warm weather for winter holidaymakers. Peak season is between November and February.

The relatively undiscovered nature of Thailand means that property prices here remain far below those in the more established European markets, although they are growing quickly and strongly (around 10-15% a year).

Thailand is the largest growth market in Asia. Some businesses choose Thailand as a regional base from which to keep their employees working all around Asia.

Thailand has recently attracted significant foreign investment. It has become one of the Asian economic leaders and is one of the fastest-growing economies in the region.

The completion of the Suvarnabhumi-Bangkok International Airport (SBIA) is expected to spur growth in commercial property markets in eastern Bangkok as well as make Thailand even more accessible by air. Thailand is one of the cheapest places to fly to in Asia.

The country has strong business links with China and has an excellent infrastructure as well as world-class facilities in many resort towns.

Property is much cheaper in Thailand than elsewhere and an increase in overseas interest in property purchase has helped to create an economic recovery in Thailand. Property investors who bought post 1999 have witnessed impressive capital growth, particularly in major cities.

Rental potential is great, due to increased government spending luring growing numbers of tourists.

No capital gains tax for private investors, and low ongoing taxes.

Today foreigners are regarded by the government as a big investment opportunity in Thailand.

From Apartments to Villas, Phuket is one of the last havens in the world where you can invest in property safely and receive a handsome return on capital.

There are currently over 250 new developments happening on the island (January 2012) and many more to come as the property boom here is still in its infancy. All developments are selling well and remarkable quickly and already many are sold out and the same developers moving on to new ones. Most experienced brokers and developers in Phuket see no end in sight to the property boom here and many see at least 10 years of growth ahead, if not more.

Phuket is undoubtedly becoming the new playground of Asia and although a small island (550 kilometres square) has every modern amenity including, international hospitals and schools, modern infrastructure and roads, broadband communications, beautiful beaches and landscape, the finest hotels and restaurants, international shopping malls, friendly welcoming people, relaxed living and little crime, and last of all a warm climate all year around. Several new marinas and golf courses are also being built.
