“Demands to buy range from Ks300 million to Ks600 or Ks800 million – in 78st, 62nd, 19st and Manawhary Streets. We hope the prices in Mandalay get as high up as 10 per cent within three months.”
The real estate market in Nay Pyi Taw also appears to moving up, as in Yangon and Mandalay. 
A real estate agent said: “Real estate prices in Nay Pyi Taw will increase in the long term.”
