Phuket Homes and Property Price Indicators
The aim of Exclusive Homes ONLINE is to provide comparative information on what is available in the property markets of Phuket, Phang Nga and Krabi. We have separated the homes listed into six broad categories based on price levels, which in turn reflect factors such as location, materials, living space and free space, density of development and facilities.
Check the descriptions below, then look for the $ symbol in the listing. Bear in mind that small condominium apartments may be in the upper range as far as quality is concerned, but a lower price band.
High End Properties $$$$$+
Latest western build techniques, high quality with every imaginable facility and often high tech. Proximity to the ocean used to be of prime importance, but today many top-end homes are built in secluded parts of the island, often on hillsides commanding stunning views. Most such homes are substantial, built on upwards of 1,600 sq m of land (1 Rai), often in managed developments of a limited number of homes. New ocean front developments on Phuket are rare today; most will be priced well above 40m Baht.
Price guide: from 40m Baht up.
Top quality build and finishing. Usually with private pools although some of the top end apartments, particularly penthouse apartments, with shared pools fall within this range. Land plot size is a factor for individual homes, whereas floor area – both internal and external – together with location, are the defining factors for apartments.
Price guide: 20m to 40m Baht.
Western standards, with good quality finishing. Western kitchens, hardwood floors, good quality close-grained doors and window frames, large ensuite bathrooms are the norm. Often with private or shared pools. Dramatic price differentials according to location.
Price guide: 15m to 20m Baht.
Western standards with western kitchens, more electrical sockets, higher spec finishings, including western-style kitchens, high quality floorings and bathroom fittings. These homes may be found all over the island, individually or within estates. Many condominium developments fall into this category.
Price guide: 10m to 15m Baht.
Properties aimed at both the local Thai market and expatriates seeking a modest family home. Basic finish, but usually have (or provision for installation of) western style kitchens and bathrooms. More electrical provision than local market housing. Usually in gated developments.
Price guide: 4m to 10m Baht.
Mostly single storey, simple properties aimed at the local market and expatriates on a limited budget. Usually in housing estates.
Price guide: 1m to 4m Baht.
