The world of Koh Samui property for sale is a rich real-estate dream of condos, apartments, villas and land-development opportunities for residential and commercial prospects. Whilst the island is well-established on the tourist map, there are far less properties available or being developed compared to the country’s largest island, Phuket. The beauty of this, of course, is that Samui still feels like a relaxed, island-in-the-sun destination, while in comparison to other hotspots across the world, the island offers some property-for-sale gems with priceless views for far less.
Gone are the days when properties and beachfront land on Thailand’s islands was ridiculously cheap, but that is not to say that the price-point is not a big attraction. Less properties up for grabs means that competition is healthy, which is great news for those looking to quickly resell or flip properties. It also means that there is greater need to collaborate with a reputable agent to find the most promising deals.
The upshot is that there is demand and supply for property in Samui for residential and business purposes. A growing number of people are looking to Samui as a place to settle, away from the polluted city, whilst many are interested in investing in a holiday home by the sea or a hospitality-rental income.
Whilst each beach resort discovered around the coast creates its own unique atmosphere for residents and tourists of all ages and tastes, the same can be said when it comes to the choice or properties for sale too, with real-estate buys for all budgets too. Whether modern or inspired by traditional, indigenous design influences, property purchasers can consider contemporary condos with sea views, bungalow retreats and spacious townhouses.
Other developments include luxurious villas set in landscaped grounds, studio apartments with a private pool as well as duplexes designed with the wow factor. Even the larger properties are budget-friendly when compared to other desirable beach destinations, especially when the facilities, location and setting are taken into consideration.
In terms of commercial ventures, as well as individual properties, there is a lot of scope to develop beachfront land, whilst interesting possibilities can arise such as purchasing part of an island and buying a resort.
The property market in Koh Samui is not as fast-moving as Phuket. However, whilst the timeless charm of the island remains, the property landscape is changing, bringing with it greater access to property purchasers to buy into the Thai-island dream.
