Demand for rental properties has been on the rise in Thailand since things began to ease up and businesses started to reopen in 2022.

One of the main reasons is that many of the first-time buyers who were going to invest in properties have had to take a detour for their securities in these uncertain times. However, this provides a unique opportunity for those looking to either make a passive income and/or diversify their investments. 2022 may be an excellent time to buy an investment property. Here are five reasons why you may want to invest in real estate: 

1. Return on investment – Unlike stock markets, real estate is going strong and is a tangible asset. So if you are looking for a good return on investment, a well-chosen real estate could be a better option than growing your stock portfolio. 

2. Build your equity – Instead of buying your first home, consider buying your first rental property.

3. Competitive real estate rates 

4. Potential protection against inflation – over the last year, the market has seen inflation worldwide. These changes can and will affect almost everything except for real estate.  

So why invest in real estate and why in Thailand?

Thailand is a country of contrasts, with natural beauty, ancient culture and rich history. Thailand also has excellent educational institutions and a dynamic economic environment. In 2022, the IMF forecast that Thailand’s GDP will grow by 3.3%. The Thai property market is buoyant and has been so since the 1960s and is still going strong, with a booming economy and the population’s interest in property investment, making it an attractive place to invest.

So whether you are looking for your next dream home or a property investment opportunity, Thailand may be the perfect place to consider. With various landscapes and cultures, this fascinating country offers historic and modern homes at a price that is more affordable than other popular destinations.
