PHUKET HOUSING SEEN RISING
According to Knight Frank Thailand’s research, the Phuket condominium market is expected to perform better in line with the brighter economic situation and the growing population of the island.
Increasing supply and higher selling prices will be the key drivers, while demand is forecast to improve slightly.
The number of launches in Phuket is predicted to mount continuously and Thai developers as well as joint venture developments will be key players in the market.
According to research, demand across the market will continue to be driven by international homebuyers, investors and expatriates, especially those from China,
“Average asking prices per sqm are anticipated to rise in all areas,”Knight Frank said.
