ItemThe different amenities provided in apartments and serviced apartmantsServiced residences by way of apartments and serviced apartments have proliferated around the world including Thailand for the past decades. Although both businesses have been a major attraction for real estate investors, there is still a lack of clarity in terms of the different amenities and services provided. Data was collected from 271 apartments in the central business district of Bangkok from eight districts that were grouped into three zones. Seven types of amenities were ranked the highest in all three sets of data. The findings imply that rents are more likely to be based on amenities provided rather than unit size. This research reconfirms that rent is driven by amenities provided.
ItemRelationships between locations vs building characteristics on serviced apartment rent : Bangkok CBD studiesThis research investigates and compares relationships between both locations and building characteristics on rent of apartments and serviced apartments. The 3 case studies investigated are in Bangkok CBD (Central Business Districts). Instead of using focused analysis on either location or buildings with mass data analysis, the study applies case studies which allow the benefit of cross investigation of both factors. The results show that to judge for rents, one cannot use either location or number of amenity types alone. Moreover, there is a need to c9nsider maintenance, conditions, buildings, and atmosphere of buildings at different price level as factors that can have influence on rent.
