Market Overview

The Thai residential real estate market is expected to register a CAGR of more than 10.42% during the forecast period.

COVID-19 has affected the residential real estate sector severely. The country expected the recovery of the sector in 2021. Unfortunately, there was a slow growth rate registered due to emerging new variants. Furthermore, the country’s residential real estate market is in the recovering phase.

Moreover, in 2022, the country is taking vital steps to boost sales in the market. For instance, the Bank of Thailand (BoT) had announced an extension of the loan-to-value (LTV) ratio for mortgage lending to allow homebuyers to borrow up to 100% of total home value. In addition, this LTV relaxation leverages the growth of the Thai economy and market supply chain, which were affected during the pandemic. This further maintains employment in the real estate sector and related industries, thus contributing to the country’s GDP.

According to Real Estate Information Center (REIC), the market experienced significant growth in 2021 due to increasing foreign investments in the sector. Despite the pandemic disruption, the Chinese are still interested in Thai property, as they hold more than 60% share in foreigner condo transfers in the country.

Residential Real Estate Market in Thailand Trends

Low-rise Housing Witnessing Lucrative Growth

Low-rise housing had robust growth in the country, supported by developers' interest in shifting trends. This was triggered by increasing demand for single-detached homes and townhomes from end users. Furthermore, the low-rise housing sector was resilient in 2020 despite the pandemic affecting the residential market.

In addition, the demand for this sector is driven by dynamic customer perspectives, which include the location, size, design, and functionality of the projects in the country. Moreover, the southern region is showing dominance in Thailand’s low-rise housing projects, which occupied a greater construction area of 2,313,867 square meters with an 8% Y-o-Y growth in 2020.
