Mr’Sittiporn Suwannasut,CEO of PD House International Co.,Ltd, the owner of PD House Franchise disclosed that the holistic view for home builder market in the third quarter in the country was still poised.The market in Bangkok and perimeter tended to be better but upcountry was poised. The competition in the past nine months was fierce because the purchasing power and the economy was not recovered. Furthermore, new entrepreneurs entered the market especially upcountry—in the central and northeastern region. They are rookies, lack of experience in management in home builder business. The only thing they know is how to access customers via online media or social media. The strategy they used for competition was cutting price, hoping to get sales amount to stand in the business.
Consumers should study the information of the entrepreneurs thoroughly. Otherwise, they will misunderstand the difference between “Professional” and “Non-professional” builders—in the aspects of stability of the building, quality and craftsmanship, pre and after sales service, reasonable price and law involved in the construction. However, new entrepreneurs enter home builder market benefit consumers because the consumers will have more choices. But home builder business is a dependent business.
