Property Outlook 2022

Property supply and demand is expected to become more balanced next year while foreign buyers wait in the sidelines for opportunities to invest in the property market in Thailand ensuring a positive outlook for the upcoming year. Throughout the pandemic a rich vein of the workforce have taken to remote working. Companies and job roles offer the opportunity for people to work around the world in different time zones. The trend of the digital nomad has also been noted by the government who have suggested relaxed restrictions for entry to the country for this profile of person.


As confidence grows around the world and vaccines rates increase, borders continue to open further supporting those that wish to live abroad. With the introduction of the wellness and medical visas, allowing people to remain in the country up to a year should see an onset of demand for housing through the scope of the market.


As Thailand’s rental properties still offer a good yield approximated at 5%, many investors are looking to take advantage of a more advantageous situation than their own country. The Chinese have been particularly prevalent in market and NPP Realty and Consultants expect this interest to rise throughout 2022.


Whilst the property market is expected to reach pre-pandemic levels in 2023 the news of the relaxed mortgage regulations to help revive the property market has been met with excitement throughout the industry. Many indicators are that the property market may even hit expected GDP in 2022 when it was previously predicted to return to previous levels in 2027.


Within the luxury property market there is rarely a drop and demand. This demand is expected to run throughout the whole of 2022 with exciting new projects on the way as well as the more established developments such as Four Seasons Private Residences, Chao Phraya River and Mandarin Oriental, The Ritz Carlton, continue to progress with their sales. We at NPP Realty Consultants regularly support transactions throughout these properties.


Government stimulated buying is expected to have many benefits to the economy of Thailand. The property industry dropped to 6 percent GDP in 2019 which is expected to have bounced back to 10 percent by 2022. This stimulus will be a positive for all industries to ensure the long term recovery from the pandemic. NPP Realty and Consultants have had many vibrant clients eager to return to Thailand or have done so already, it has been a pleasure serving them throughout 2021. We are now even more excited for 2022.

No Work Permit, No Problem, please stay for 10 years!

Work and Stay in Thailand



The biggest shake up in years in foreign ownership and work permit/ visas is on the way. Proposals by Tourism Authority of Thailand made to the Prime Minister at Government House has set out four target groups. The target groups would be able to work in Thailand without a work permit. They would also pay just seventeen percent tax on local earning, have the right to buy property and land and be able to stay for up to ten years.



Target Groups



These proposals are being considered by the government and the targets groups are as follows:


  1. Highly skilled individuals with Specific Abilities


  1. Digital Nomads


  1. Foreign retirees


  1. The Wealthy


From the four groups TAT aims to attract one million people. They believe that this will increase expertise and the economic benefits of spending locally. TAT believe that these one million people will bring an extra one trillion baht. The target market are expected to spend a minimum of one million baht per year. Much higher than that is the reality with wealthy investors enjoying branded residences in Bangkok such as Four Seasons Private Residences, Chao Phraya, The Residences at Sindhorn Kempinski and The Residences at Mandarin Oriental. People are ready to invest, when Thailand reopens once again the money will follow.


Highly Skilled Individuals with Specific Abilities


Industry workers, medical skills, professors and other skilled areas. Expat packages have appeared to decrease in recent years but in reality the expat packages are as strong as ever. Whilst the overall salary has remained similar, this amount appears smaller owing to the strong baht. That being said, expat packages often offer schooling, housing, drivers, maids and many other extras with the package.


Digital Nomads


People within this group must be earning at least eighty thousand dollars in the last two years or forty thousand dollars per year. The target group will be digital nomads or people close to retirement age. All long term visitors will be expected to have a one hundred thousand dollar health insurance coverage.


Foreign Retirees


In order to apply for the long term visa, retirees will have to invest two hundred and fifty thousand dollars in government bonds or real estate. If they cannot do that, they can show the same earnings as the digital nomads from their pensions. Providing they can show all of the required evidence, they will be eligible for the ten year visa.


The Wealthy


To qualify for this group you must be a high earner. There will be no age limit but you must invest five hundred thousand dollars in either real estate or Government bonds. This group will need to show the same earnings but also one million dollars worth of assets in order to be eligible for the visa.




As the Cabinet will now be considering the details of this proposal, NPP Realty and Consultants will wait to comment on these matters until items are confirmed officially. That being said, the new regulations would be a welcome stimulus for the property market and tourism market combined.



Crypto Currency in Thailand – Buying A Property

Investors in the real estate market are often discouraged by the fees related to buying a property in Thailand. With many investors’ money remaining offshore, there has been little chance in reducing the fee appropriated with buying real estate – until now. Opportunities are soon to open up to buy properties with crypto currencies.


Crypto and Real Estate


Cryptocurrency and the digital era are a perfect partnership. All around the world, people maintain portfolios with a total value of over two trillion dollars. That is no insignificant amount by anyone’s standards.


Crypto and Thailand


In day to day life, Thailand has been slow to adopt to digital currency. Using crypto has become the norm in many countries around the world. Whilst digital nomads have been building their wallets for many years, spending those cryptos directly is the next challenge.


Crypto Visas


Digital nomads are looking for relaxed laws in terms of immigration in the coming years. Thailand is opting to support the digital lifestyle following suit to countries including Singapore and Vietnam. Making visa requirements easier and the possibility of working online with a work permit accessible to all will open Thailand up to becoming a hub for digital nomads.


Crypto and Residences


The luxury property market has been becoming more and more open to crypto currency purchases. It has also begun to open up in Thailand also. With huge, branded residences names residing in Thailand including Four Seasons Private Residences Chao Phraya River, The Residences at Sindhorn Kempinski and The Residences at Mandarin Oriental are all state of the art, latest and greatest brands in the world. However, it is not the branded residences leading the way but the developers.


Real Estate Coins


Real estate firms Sansiri and Ananda Development may be among the first to develop a digital coin bringing the digital and real world a step closer together. The coin is expected to launch in quarter 2 of 2021. This coin will allow people to invest from very low levels to high levels as per their personal circumstances.


The Future


Ananda and Origin Property have already accepted currency as payment for properties. As belief and trust and stability grows within the crypto currency world, the use and the acceptance will develop throughout Thailand. It will become a part of everyday life with the current trend of people making purchases, bookings and other aspects of our lives that are already planned by our online lives. The future is bright, the future in online.

Welcome to Thailand – Your Forever Home!!

Smiling happy people, astounding beaches, culinary delights to get your tastes buds watering at every corner. You have just visited Thailand for the first time and now you have returned home, you want to do everything you can to make Thailand your home. So when you turn on your laptop and search for buying property in Thailand you are suddenly terrified by the amount of information, scaremongering stories and experiences of others. Suddenly your dream feels far from a reality, however, a reality it can be. 

Can Foreigners own Land in Thailand?


In short no. The laws in Thailand are clear and specific. However, being Thailand, there are work arounds that people have used frequently over the last 20 years and beyond. 

Leasehold Property


Leasehold property ownership allows both Thais and Foreigners to own the lease outright for the term. With super-luxury brands such as Four Seasons Private Residences Bangkok by Chao Phraya river and The Residences at Sindhorn Kempinski Hotel Bangkok by the Crown Property Bureau, The One Bangkok and brand new Aman Nai Lert Residences Bangkok both foreign and Thai investors have opportunities to own the most luxurious of branded residences in Bangkok. Leasehold property ownership for both foreign and Thai nationals has a maximum term of 30 years. The term length varies between developments. Most of developers provided renewal options. 30 years is the maximum length of time from a legal perspective, but that does not mean you will have to give up your dream home after just a few decades. In many situations, the owner will state that the contract will be reviewed at the end of the 30 years with the intention to renew the contract, which can legally be done twice. If you really want to purchase a beach-side villa to live in for your entire lifetime, you can easily do this with a total of 90 years on your leasehold. If you don’t want to live in the home, this is also plenty of time to rent the property out and turn it into profit.

Freehold property


High-End Hotel Residences such as The Residences at Mandarin Oriental, the Ritz Carlton at Mahanakorn and The Sukhothai Residences offer freehold property ownership. The current law stipulates that all condominiums and developments must be at least fifty one percent owned by Thai nationals. Foreigners can however own the condominium as long as the condominium follows the foreign quota. There is debate in Parliament currently whether that number should be increased to eighty percent. This debate is still in the early stages and no change is expected any time soon. 



Currently land in Thailand may only be owned by Thai nationals. There are ways of owning land indirectly but according to the law the land is still owned by a Thai national. A method of owning land is setting up a Thai Limited Company allows foreigners to own the company and the company may own land. This method whilst used successfully means that the foreigner owns forty nine percent of the business while Thai nominee directors own the other fifty one percent of the company. Secondly the house on the land is then leased by the foreigner to hold the property for the specified period of time. 

Forthcoming Changes


With the pandemic still active there are many rumors being shared. In order to stimulate the economy, the beginning of May 2021, Thai Government is keen to find new initiatives to run. Between the eighty percent rumor there is also rumors of an updated land act. Last updated in 1999, the law was updated so that foreigners married to a Thai national could own land. The updated law is searching to see if foreigners could outright own land with certain parameters set such as the size of the land. There are also whispers that foreign ownership of land maybe allowed during the Covid period only and for certain plots only. If this occurs, it will be the first time in Thailand’s history of allowing foreign ownership. At NPP Consultants, we continue watching closely to bring you the latest information possible. If any confirmation occurs, we will provide the full explanation of the changes to the law here.
