PP land prices on the rise

As Cambodia moves forward with its economy and prepares for the ASEAN integreation, land prices in Phnom Penh are rising.

The following price estimates are based on square meters shown by the study for the first quarter of 2015.

In Sitha, vice president of World Trust Estate, said, “The reason why Phnom Penh land prices saw an increase in the first quarter is because of several factors.

First, Cambodia maintains economic growth, political stabilty and people’s increasing income. Second, land demand from local and international investors keeps increasing.

Third, land for condo construction increases. Also, Cambodia is preparing to be integrated in ASEAN Economic Integration, so condo or residential demand will be increasing at that time.”
