Choosing wisely your perfect property for sale in Bali is an easy process if you consider at least 4 factors: availability, prices, infrastructure in the area, and future returns on investment.
Whether you’re looking for your own family nest or a profitable investment-only apartment, Harcourts Purba Bali explains in this article how to make the right decision buying property in Bali.
Bali is one of the world’s top leading destinations for tourists, digital nomads, and investors. Yet, Bali is extremely diverse and location can determine the price of any Bali property for sale and investment opportunities, as well as the comfort of living in the area.
On the other hand, it is also the question of availability that affects pricing a lot. Canggu remains the business and expat center of the island with a booming villa and apartment market, yet there are very few beachfront land plots left, and they are all extremely expensive. Moving more west, you can find cheaper and bigger land parcels, but a very scarce supply of villas and no luxury apartment complexes.
To help you decide on what type of property you’re looking into depending on its location, Harcourts Bali created a simplified availability table for you:
If you’re looking for an apartment, browse modern apartments for sale in the heart of Canggu. Planning to invest in villas, you have plenty of choices across the island and then your budget and lifestyle will play the most important role.
|Canggu (Berawa, Batu Bolong)||+++||++||+|
|Pererenan||++||± (more like loft stand-alone houses)||++|
|Nusa Dua, Sanur, Benoa||++||–||++|
|Bukit (Uluwatu, Jimbaran)||+++||–||++|
|Kuta (Legian, Sunset Road, Seminyak)||+++||++||– (extremely little amount)|
If you choose to invest in land and build from scratch, the most affordable options will be on the West Coast, while the most yielding ones remain in Canggu, Seminyak, and Ubud.
Bali has something to offer for anyone and it is vital to consider your or your guests’ lifestyle while choosing a location for the future property. Of course, all the labels are not strict and the infrastructure is growing extremely fast in Bali, however, we’ve prepared a very simple guide for you with the pros and cons of each of the popular areas offering property for sale in Bali:
Among less popular locations – are Amed, Tabanan, and North of Bali. They are amazingly lush, beautiful, and peaceful, and the property prices are very advantageous right now.
Researching Bali property for sale you will be surprised how much location affects the pricing, however, while it is one of the most important factors when you’re buying land, choosing a location may save you money, when you’re buying a finished villa or even a villa on an early stage of construction, the prices will be quite same across the whole island.
For your convenience, Harcourts Purba Bali created a simple comparison table of prices on now available properties for sale in Bali. The prices are very sensitive to land infrastructure (road access, poll, garden, etc), view from the property and the square footage, as well as the number of bedrooms.

As you can see your budget cannot go lower than 200 000 USD on average for a 2-3 bedroom villa in any location in Bali, and of course it is a very simplified understanding and the actual prices will vary between USD 250 000 and USD 350 000 on average if you’re not looking for anything extravagant.
It looks more appealing to buy a piece of land in Bali and build your dream house. 2-3 ares (200-300 sq m) are enough for a 2-bedroom villa, a small pool, and a small garden. As simple as the design can be, your house with the land for 25 years can cost you less than USD 200 000 while the advantages of building your own place are numerous.
Dreaming about moving to paradise is great, and can absolutely become something real. Yet, not everyone is looking to buy property in Bali to live in, real estate on the island is very famous for being a highly profitable source of income. Investors from all over the world (Singapore, China, Australia, and the USA being the top-4) choose Bali property for rental purposes.

There are no centralized real estate reports on that matter in Indonesia yet, however, it is said that on average an investor can expect an 8% to 30% return on investment per year. As you can see based on the prices comparison table, if one day you decide to sell the property, your profit will be extremely high.
