The average price of Bangkok condos for sale was around 7.65 million baht in 2005 and in 2006 this figure was 5.5 million baht. In most of the cases, the price decreased due to the reduction of the condos’ surface. The developers were worried about the condos’ high mortgage rates and about the high prices for the services and, as a result, they reduced the surface of the properties.
