Property on Koh Samui varies, though many luxury villas and apartments are being built due to the foreign resident population expanding every year and the number of tourists visiting the island. Many of the properties are managed by agents as the demand is so high. Long term tenants of the villas and apartments are often given special rates, especially out of season. In peak seasons the properties are generally rented for higher income.
Prices of property rentals also depend on how luxurious the property is and how spectacular the location is. Professional real estate agents believe the more remote the property is and the better views it has, increases the value of the rental.
