Can I time the real estate market?

During the period of 2003 to 2008, property prices appreciated sharply. Land prices almost tripled in most parts of the country on account of faster jobs creation, urbanization, and rising income levels. Were these the only reasons for sharp appreciation? No, says the experts. According to them, real estate is a cyclical industry and at the beginning of the last decade, real estate prices were at their nadir. The coupling effect of sharp GDP growth and cyclical nature of real estate industry resulted in sharp appreciation of property prices from 2003 to 2008.

Thailand - Bangkok : #FoodHoppingBKK ISAO

ISAO - One of the best Japanese fusion restaurants in Bangkok. Was strongly recommended by a friend whose brother lives in Bangkok for the longest time and told me I will not regret going to this Japanese fusion restaurant. The location a little funny - not near any BTS station nor any shopping mall and is hiding in between shophouses. It is a 10 minutes walk on a straight road from Asoke BTS station and 2 minutes walk after a left turn into the alley. Although not perfect location, this place always full house!
