Investors are eager to pay more than the usual price to reserve the finest Bangkok city properties.

Bangkok´s central business district has been the concentration of high-end, luxurious and unique developments. With more developments rising, Local Thais and expatriates are predicting that 2008 is possibly the best time to secure these properties if you are considering investment options.

Timing is an important consideration for investment buyers, and Sathorn Gardens is providing a 1 year guaranteed rental returns and up to 90% loan financing and free 1% mortgage registration fee,” Mr. Urasate Navanugraha further added.
