The serviced apartment sector continued to show further signs of recovery from the lows of Q2 2010. Overall rental rates and occupancy were up q/q.
It appears that the lingering effects of the April/May events of 2010 which directly impacted areas seems to be dissipating rapidly with Central Lumpini and Central CBD recording very positive figures for Q1 2011.
However this is no time for complacency as the sector faces another significant infusion of supply over the course of the year that will put pressure on the gains made over the past six months.
The earthquake and tsunami in Japan may have a small short term negative influence, however in the longer term expected increased Japanese investment into Thailand will also positively affect the serviced apartment sector.
