PHUKET: The Phuket Real Estate Club (PREC) will stage an exhibition showcasing property in Phuket and on Koh Samui, at Central Festival Phuket from April 6 to 10.
PREC President Phummisak Hongsyok said that the exhibition is partly to support Governor Udomsak Uswarangkura’s aim of having more activities staged in Phuket, now that the tsunami anniversary ceremonies are over.
“This is the first event of this kind that we have arranged, and we do not expect that many customers will actually put down deposits for homes. The main idea is to give people information to help them make decisions,” K. Phummisak said. “We understand that people have to think very carefully before buying a house.”
The show will comprise some 60 booths showcasing homes and land in Phuket and on Koh Samui, with prices ranging from “medium” to “luxury”.
K. Phummisak said that the property industry is showing solid growth. It is in better shape than the tourism industry, he said, because its customers include Thais as well as foreigners.
He noted, however, the link between property and tourism. “We have had good feedback from foreigner investors, both those developing property and those buying homes in Phuket and Samui. They believe that tourism will return to normal, which gives them the courage to invest.”
Supot Suwannachote, Chief of the Phuket Provincial Land Office, said that he is considering taking a booth at the show to give people information on the technical aspects of buying land and property.
