Pattaya, the 11th of March 2008 [Pattaya Daily News]: Raimon Land CEO Mr Nigel J Cornick said the report’s findings point to fertile ground for astute property buyers. “Pattaya offers investors a tremendous opportunity to realise both strong short-term gains as well as long-term growth through investments in grade A condominium developments, along with a host of active outdoor lifestyle options,” he said.

According to Why Invest Pattaya, investors have turned over condominium units, such as those at Raimon Land’s 187-unit Northshore launched in 2004, for returns as high as 30% the following year with some purchase prices jumping to 40-50% in 2006. “This shows no sign of slowing down with only a limited supply of high-end developments available on the market, and the traditional buying markets of the UK, America and Scandinavia being supplemented by strong interest from Eastern European countries including Russia,” said Mr Cornick.

The report notes that Pattaya’s buoyant condominium sector saw the average price rise 52% from the THB59,000 per square metre (psm) achieved in 2004 to a THB89,842 psm average in 2007. It further reveals promising rental returns in low-risk, long-term investments with 9-12% annual yields already being achieved at Pattaya’s Northshore condominium.

Why Invest…Pattaya spotlights other key indicators behind the momentum driving the residential real estate sector. Chief among these is its growing allure as a destination, with tourist numbers climbing from 6.1 million in 2006 to around 6.85 million in 2007, sealing its position as Thailand’s top resort destination. Pattaya is also in the heart of Thailand’s fastest growing regional economy.

The Chonburi and Rayong areas along the eastern seaboard have seen their economies grow 12% from 2005 to 2006. Raimon Land Vice-President Research and Development Mr Simon Dervill้ said Why Invest Pattaya would be of great use to potential investors in the eastern seaboard to learn more about the opportunities available. “It puts forward strong and substantiated evidence as to why the destination offers a compelling opportunity for investors, be they retirees, businessmen or someone looking for a second home,” Mr Dervill้ said.
