Rental yields in Bangkok range from 5.0% to 6.8%. Over the past year since last conducted our survey, yields on larger apartments rise significantly.
Smaller apartments earn higher rental yields than bigger apartments, but the difference is now very much smaller. A 65-square metre (sq.m.) apartment in Bangkok’s central location now earns gross rental yields of around 6.8%, while a 350-sq.m. apartment also centrally located, earns gross rental yields of around at 6.16%. Yields have risen strongly at the luxury end of the market.
The apartments included in this survey are located in Bangkok’s upscale residential areas which includes Sukhumvit Road, Silom, Sathorn, Riverside, Rama III, and Central Lumpini.
Prices in Thailand (single detached house price index) have risen by around 4.81% over the past year to Q2 2014 (or around 2.28% when adjusted for inflation).
