Mr. Thongchai Busrapan, First Vice Chairman and Co-Chief Executive Officer of Noble Development Plc (“NOBLE”), a leading residential developer in prime locations of Greater Bangkok, revealed that the overall real estate market has shown a clear sign of recovery as the COVID-19 situation has much improved. This has reactivated both the market sentiment and consumers’ purchasing power, resulting in continuous growth in property market. This reflects to NOBLE’s pre-sales in the first 7-month of 2022, which were able to generate sales of THB 12,540 million, an increase of 173% YoY. This made a new growth record by quarter for NOBLE and more importantly, it is higher than full year pre-sales of 2021 at THB 8,035 million.

Besides, there are also existing projects that can generate pre-sales continuously such as Noble BE19, Noble Gable Watcharapol, Nue Connex House Don Mueang, and Noble Around 33.

The backlog will be gradually realized as revenue in the remainder of this year and the next two to three years which more than THB 6,000 million will be recognized in 2022. Thus, the company believes the growth in 2022 revenue will be higher than 2021 and 2023 revenue is anticipated to reach THB 15,000 million. Hence, with record-high backlog, this will help sustain the revenue, thereby, resulting in the company’s capability to achieve targeted as planned and build investors’ confidence in the long term.

“Due to improving COVID-19 situation, the easing measures, and favorable economic activities, these have resulted in the continuous recovery of the real estate market. This can be seen from the positive feedback in the company’s various projects. Furthermore, the re-opening of the country to welcome foreigner tourists who will improve the sentiment of local people to help restore the economy and generate income. In addition, it is also an opportunity to increase more foreign purchasing power especially Chinese customers with frequent inquiries. This also includes customers from other countries such as Singapore, Myanmar, and Europe, who are increasingly demanding to invest in Thai real estate. These are the markets that help drive the demand while China has not fully opened the country.”
