So, what does 2020 have in store for the property markets? It promises to be a testing time with developers having a more cautious approach. It will undoubtedly be a buyer's market. Thailand has enjoyed a steady growth in the property market, over recent years, but because of the economic climate and the strong BAHT, it has brought uncertainty within the sector. Many developers have slowed down their new projects in favour of trying to clear their unsold portfolios. There is a new tax about to be introduced which puts further pressure on landowners to start developing vacant plots to avoid a new tax. This time more than over the last few years will allow a client to get the best deal either from either renting or buying. There is certainly an abundance of rental properties to be had. If you are thinking of changing your house or looking to purchase for the first time, there are many areas within the Pattaya area offering several incentives.
With the tightening of lending rates aimed at the domestic market, it has had an impact as many homebuyers prevented in getting the level of credit required for a mortgage. First-time buyers affected the most trying to get on the property ladder for the first time.
Recently there have been moves from the government to relax the lending criteria as they strive to stimulate the economy. Prompting a further 10% option for borrowing on new properties to furnish and decorate. Also, there has been a relaxation for the borrowing conditions for second homeowners. Certainly, a welcome boost. Where people can prove the mortgage on their first property is in order, they can now borrow 90% with a 10% deposit, which has reduced from 20%.
