We estimate aggregate coverage 3Q22 presales of Bt60bn (73% low-rise, 27% condo), up by 37% YoY and 2% QoQ. Low-rise presales are expected at Bt44bn, up by 28% YoY and 1% QoQ, led by heavy low-rise project launches in 3Q22 (Bt63bn in value, up by 186% YoY and 23% QoQ). Condo presales should be Bt16bn, up by 73% YoY and 6% QoQ.
