Thailand’s low economic growth is not affecting its real estate market, which is still showing steady growth, reports Dot Property (25 September 2015). Factors include the fact that Thai properties are still considered a bargain compared to neighbouring countries, as well as the weakened Thai baht, which attracts foreign investors. According, Thailand’s residential purchasing intent index for Chinese buyers seeking Thai properties increased as much as 180 percent year-on-year. Compare this to the average rise of 37 percent among the top five countries, namely the United States, Australia, the United Kingdom, Canada and New Zealand.
