Why Buy A Property In Pattaya?

Well, if the above overview of what Pattaya has on offer isn't enough to temp you, lets get down to business. what are the long-term growth and investment benefits of acquiring property in Pattaya?

Thailand as a whole and Pattaya in particular has remained strong throughout the last two years of the global financial crisis. Due to a serious recession back in 1996 Thailand along with other countries in S.E Asia learned not to over extend themselves in debt and as a result have fared much better than Europe, Great Britain and the United States. Continued foreign investment remains strong despite some political unrest last year. Thailand is still very attractive from an investors stand point and is considered stable compared to most other S.E. Asian countries. The housing market in particular is set to grow this year and well into 2012. Conservative estimates are forecasting an impressive 6-10% rise throughout the country with even higher yields in more affluent areas, such as Pattaya.

Pattaya city is and continues to be one of the most cosmopolitan coastal cities in Asia and should be your number one stop when searching for a home or investment opportunity in S.E Asia.
