Investing / Living in Bali ?
"Bali today is more popular than ever". Travel journals and visitors hail Bali as the Top Asian travel destiny. There is also a consistently increasing demand for Bali property by informed investors and future retirees from many nations.
If land prices continue to increase as in the past, averaging 20% plus p.a., soon Bali property prices may rival Hawai and Tahiti. By then you better should have made your move. There is no reason to think that the trend is going to stop anytime soon, as the Indonesian Government is discussing legislation to make property ownership for foreigners more accessible again.
Life itself in Bali is going to remain attractive and very affordable, because Indonesia is developing in a slow, but steady pace. The reason: General living cost are going to remain low, as the large Indonesian population is to dictate low levels of expenses for food and other basic cost, such as fuel, as long as the economy is still far behind western standards.
Given the attractive value increases of Bali property, combined with low building and maintenance cost, and considering that land on an island is limited, which better investment is there available? Gold is presently increasing in value, but still there is no guarantee for long term stability. Unless you can spread your capital well over solid shareholding, holding stock is even less unpredictable. Predictable is land and property development in the growing Asian nations.
Laws on western property ownership in Indonesia have been relaxed again in April 2010. Foreigners can now hold a Government title on property for 70 years with the option to extend. The Indonesian Government understands the need to improve the foreign investment climate and has again, one month later, in May 2010, announced further legislation to encourage private foreign investment into property.
