What is the Average ROI for Property Investments in Phuket?
Phuket is one of the most exciting markets for property investments. It always has been, and not only because of its beautiful nature and landscape, but also because it’s one of the most visited holiday destinations in Southeast Asia. It’s always been popular amongst Australians, Europeans and Americans, and over the past 10 years the island has become very popular amongst Russian and Chinese tourists.
A large percentage of the visitors are interested in owning a holiday home in Phuket. That demand has brought a decent amount of supply of holiday homes over the past ten years, and more and more attractive properties are still being built. That supply has also increased the demand on the developers on the island to come up with attractive return on investment (ROI) opportunities through guaranteed rental returns in order to provide a handsome capital gain for the buyers.
Not too long ago, Phuket property developers came up with the great idea of having an agreement with international hotel chains to run their projects as a hotel when they’re completed. This increases the liability of the project as well as provides a good rental return guarantee to the investors.
Generally new Hotel Managed Developments offer 7% guaranteed yearly rental return to new buyers, commonly for no less than 3 years and some projects offer even up to 15 years of guaranteed income generated from renting out your property. Most developers also allocate around one month per year for the owners to use their property. The rest of the year it is being used as a hotel room, generating income for the owner.
Most projects have one condition on the owner in order for him to be able to join the rental pool, and that is that the owner has to go with the developers’ default furniture package and cannot change/personalize much in the unit. That gives opportunity to the hotel management to rent the units out as advertised.
We’ve put a couple of good deals together here to give you an idea about the rental return possibilities through owning a property investments in Phuket.
