Property Agencies throughout Bangkok are often contacted by Buyers looking for new projects between 1 to 3 Million Baht.
Yet, anyone familiar with Bangkok’s property market will know that, condos priced at this affordable range has become increasingly rare and elusive. Urbanization, development and gentrification of the Capital, has relentlessly pushed prices upwards!
Is it still possible to find affordable 1 to 3 Million Baht Condos in Bangkok?
Yes, it is still possible!
Affordable projects are still being launched and marketed (… But buyers will need to compromise a bit)!
What’s the compromise?
In most cases, this compromise comes in the form of “less-central locations”.
Buyers will need to be adventurous and willing to explore new and up-and-coming neighborhoods.
With low-cost projects either located in peripheral (Non-CBD) locations or residences located a distance away from mass transit (BTS Skytrain/ MRT Underground) stations.
Provided buyers are willing to adjust, these new projects offer great quality concepts, amenities and lifestyles.
Let’s explore examples of Projects with starting prices between 1- 3 Million Baht:
