Living near public transportation in Bangkok
Enjoy All the Convenience of Living Near the BTS System
Browse through the listings on Home Connect and find a condo to rent or buy near the BTS transit system.
The BTS has been a valuable addition to Bangkok’s various transportation systems ever since it was launched in 1999. But few people realised back then how important the train would become to Bangkok’s property market.
As the population of the city rose, and traffic became steadily worse, the value of a rail transit system high above the crowded streets became obvious. Property values in the areas around the system’s stations began to steadily rise as their value became apparent.
Making the BTS a Feature
Today, practically all developers treat the proximity to the BTS system as a feature of the condos they are renting and selling. And they charge more for the units closest to the BTS system and the newer MRT system.
Several developers in and around the Sukhumvit area also provide shuttle transport from their condos to the closest station. This is simply to spare their tenants from having to walk or take public transportation to and from their condos. Proximity to a railway station has become as important as a swimming pool, underground parking or a fitness centre.
Competition is Good for Prospective Residents
The areas around the rail stations have been snapped up by developers, and more and more condos have been built. Because of this, the developers have begun competing with each other to attract buyers and tenants.
This puts a prospective buyer or renter in a very advantageous position. As the competition has increased, so have the amenities offered by the developers. While a pool, parking and fitness centre is a must these days, prospective tenants shouldn’t be surprised if they come across condo developments containing spas, restaurants, children’s playgrounds, dry cleaners and convenience stores.
The areas along Sukhumvit Road have become prized neighbourhoods that have attracted fine dining restaurants, expensive boutiques and favoured nightspots.
The rail system has turned the Sukhumvit Road area into the favourite haunt of locals and expats alike. They enjoy both the convenience and excitement of living in such a dynamic and lively area of the city.
