I think it'll stay flat. At least for a while before things drop.
nothing gonna change, it's a supply issue

I'm not sure about that... Some say there is plenty of supply. But the demand is driving it down.
How about condo's?

Going down for about month or two, then it will get scooped up by even more foreigners.


I have never seen a more stupid government. Thai junta is actually inventive in comparison.

If they allow housing to be treated like a stock exchange without capital gains taxes imposed and other restrictions, then it'll go up, to the moon.

If they limit the housing market for people wanting to live in dwellings or people wanting to buy-and-rent dwellings, the prices will go slightly down and be dead for a few years, unless interest rates go haywire.

All comes down to the allowing or not allowing the market, insured by taxpayer money, to be flip flopped by speculators and foreigners alike.

Its not a free market, so its all down to government policy.
