THAILAND, A POPULAR DESTINATION FOR CHINESE INVESTORS
With over ten direct flights daily connecting Beijing to Thailand combined with handy on-arrival visa procedures, Thailand is fast becoming a preferred investment destination for Chinese property investors.
Reflecting on this trend, the leading real estate developers and agencies from Phuket, Bangkok, Koh Samui and Pattaya have confirmed their presence at the show.
“Thailand is currently among the most popular Asian markets for China-based property investors”, says Mr Olivier de Treglode, the CEO of LPS. “The geographical proximity with China, the common culture, competitive prices for luxury homes and of course the famous lifestyle associated with Thailand have made Thai properties extremely attractive to wealthy Chinese buyers”.
The popularity of Thailand among Chinese buyers keeps growing, and it is now the third most popular destination in Asia at LPS, only surpassed by Japan and Singapore, with 30.5% of Beijing-based investors considering a purchase in Thailand.
Budget-wise, 27% of investors are eying properties priced between USD 500,000 to USD 1M, while 39% of them are eying properties priced between USD 1M to USD 2M, and 34% of buyers are ready to spend over 2M.
