Main selling points about the development
Bangkok rental market is thriving, Life Ladprao is predicted to gunner rental occupancy of more than 90%. With the increasing population in the capital, there is a thriving market with higher occupancy rate due to its proximity to the CBD making the property a catchment location for most working professionals.
Life Ladprao has a convenient location, an important feature which home buyers pay close attention to, the property’s strategic location to a variety of amenities that are a stone throw away ensuring all the requirements and needs of future residents are met and fully satisfied. Phahon Yothin MRT Station, Chatuchak Market, and Sripatum University to name a few are all within walking distance.
One of the main selling points of the development is its freehold status, imagine the thought of never paying rent again. The freehold tenure will also enable you to sell off or rent your apartment unit; you will have total control over what to do with your apartment. It will also allow you to re-design your units to suit your taste and preference complementing your modern and urban lifestyle.
The property is close to upcoming infrastructures such as BTS Light Green Line North Extension (Mochit – Kukhot) that will be operational in 2020 and mega mixed-use project under planning stage on 48-rai of land nearby Supalai Park Phaholyothin opening up the area for further development.

Possible bad points about the development
Its central location is a drawback regarding traffic snarl up and congestion, during peak hours it will be almost impossible to move especially for motorists. You will spend huge amounts of your time on the road that can inconvenience a lot your punctuality in the morning.
There is increased construction activities with property developments popping up along mass transit system increasing the supply condominiums in the market. Life Ladprao is located close to rail lines increasing competition the property will face once its officially launched from surrounding project development hampering it attractiveness and marketability.
My thought about the development
Life Ladprao is priced below most new launched development prices in the vicinity making it an attractive investment property destination. It’s below rate market price at 3.49 MB (US$105,300, HK$826,400, SG$143,650, CNY696,300, Euro90,400) coupled with its magnificent design, Life Ladprao is affordable and will cater for various diverse and target groups who are looking for a home at the heart of Bangkok.
In my opinion, its location is the main draw, its proximity to MRT Phahon Yothin Station, MRT Phaholyothin and BTS Chatuchak no property can rival Life Ladprao when it comes to accessibility. The movement to and from the property will be hassle-free allowing easy and convenient traveling within the city and the rest of the country.
Thailand especially Bangkok, has witnessed increased foreign visits especially those who want to settle in the country, the property is well positioned to take full advantage of foreigners looking for a property within the city offering huge benefits compared to other properties. Growing foreign demand will boost high capital growth and rental yield for both investors and homeowners.
The property terms of payment and ownership are very impressive; the government has passed policies ensuring taxation for both foreigners and locals are the same making the property an attractive venture and a ‘hot cake’ in the market. Mortgages are also available to foreigners attracting foreign tenant pool.
- Pricing – 75%
Life Ladprao deserves the score; its average price per square meter of 125,000 Baht is quite affordable compared to most developments. Factoring its location, for that price, it’s an absolute steal, and you should not think twice about snapping up the property.

The apartments payment schedule is simple and straightforward making it very beneficial to those who wish to buy the apartment units. Efficiency and transparency are at the core of this development.
- Location – 70%
The property is well located, it’s a hub of lifestyle. All amenities are within a stone throw distance, the only thing that did not impress me the most is the largest shopping mall Siam Paragon is a bit far away from the property limiting shoppers.
The government is also undertaking infrastructural overhaul within the properties surrounding reducing travel time, enhancing accessibility and boosting higher than average Bangkok capital growth potential which averages 8% per annum as a result of infrastructural development in Ladprao area.
- Quality -90%
The property has a unique and modern design made with high-quality construction, fixtures, and fittings sourced from highly rated manufacturers and supplier offering nothing but the best. Each apartment complex with an efficient floor plan, high ceiling and huge window panes allowing plenty of natural light and providing a scenic and beautiful view of the city skyline that’s to die for. I find the property is unique and modern comparing it to other developments within the city.
