The Koh Samui Property Market
Koh Samui is a little gem, a tropical island that is accessed from the mainland of Thailand by ferry, or directly by plane, to the islands award winning International airport. Its charm is addictive and with its year-on-year growth, both in the property market and in general, Koh Samui continues to be a destination of choice for holidaymakers and investors.
Since Overseas Property Portfolio opened its doors in 2008, the Koh Samui property market has seen many changes. OPP arrived at its peak, which, unbeknown to us, was soon to fall and then the worldwide recession hit. However during these years, Koh Samui saw a flow of savvy buyers for holiday home/investment purposes along with those looking to make the island a permanent home.
Towards the end of 2012, the Koh Samui property market really seemed to pick up and has been steadily driving forward ever since, with old developers returning, along with new one’s arriving, seeing the opportunity the island has to offer.
