  • There were 561 units completed in this quarter in the downtown area, decreasing from 1,636 units in Q1 2016. The number of newly completed condominium units in the midtown/suburban areas was 14,765 units this quarter, decreasing from 18,524 units in Q1 2016.
  • In the first month of this quarter, condominium developers continued to focus on transferring completed units and clearing built-but-unsold inventory in order to take advantage of the temporary reduction in transfer and mortgage fees which expired on 28 April 2016. The number of newly launched condominium units was at record lows both in the downtown and midtown/suburban areas since Q2 2012 and Q3 2011, respectively. There were 960 condominium units launched in the downtown area this quarter, a decrease of 61% Y-o-Y, and 7,315 condominium units launched in the midtown/suburban area, a decrease of 59% Y-o-Y.

The increase in the average asking price for future downtown condominium units was largely due to the record prices in many new condominium projects launched during 2014-2015. The average asking price for off-plan condominium units in midtown/suburban Bangkok was THB 87,152 per square metre, an increase of 3.1% Y-o-Y.
