Summary

"Asoke to Ekamai area is a potential location for luxury property development by large developers. However, a limitation in land plot and funding has become a factor driving developers to develop a project with niche, different features like high-rise high-end project, low-rise luxury project or a joint venture with foreign partner for financial and technology purpose. In pricing, when compared land price and selling price per square meter in projects in luxury segment, higher increases in land price were resulted from a limitation in land plot. Meanwhile, condominium selling price per square meter has risen consecutively in line with land prices. However, in 2016-17 launch prices were stable as developers shifted to focus on low-rise high-end project development. As seen in the market, condominium prices rose 9% per year on average while land prices increased up to 19% per annum. For product quality, as competition in luxury market segment is very high with an increasing number of new projects launched consecutively, product quality is better with different features depending on each project which benefits buyers," Mrs. Nalinrat says.
