Bali is changing and growing fast and steadily: only 30 years ago, rice fields were endless, and today, at the same spot, there are hundreds of brand-new developments and luxury villas peppered across.
The property market has gained popularity and trust among the leading world’s economies, attracting more foreign investments. It is now time to hunt for houses for sale in Bali to secure the best market price and enter one of the world’s most profitable real estate.
HOW MUCH DOES A HOUSE IN BALI COST?
A middle-class one-bedroom villa in Bali with a pool not too far from the beach in popular locations will cost USD 200 000 – 300 000. Luxury villas prices start from USD 500 000 – 700 000 and go up to several million. Resort property pricing starts from 2-3 million dollars.
If you are purchasing a house for sale in Bali long-term under your name (leasehold) or the name of your company (freehold), the price will not only include the price of the house but the lease of the land for 25 or more years.
The average plot size is 2-3 are (200-300 sq m). In central and tourist locations, the leasehold price per 100 sqm is from USD 6100 per year. The freehold prices will vary, but usually, leasehold is 10% of the freehold price, ex. 1 sq m of freehold land in Canggu costs USD 1500. By buying the freehold, you don’t have to calculate the price per year, you pay for the whole period of owning the property, and that period is most likely to be up to 80 years of legal ownership.
We have a list of 12 hotspots to find houses for sale in Bali which can be a reference for research and information related to areas for those of you who need it.
Canggu is the number one destination in Bali both for tourism and real estate. It is known for its 24/7 buzzing atmosphere, as well as its beaches and surfing.

The area is also home to several restaurants, cafes, beach clubs, nightclubs, and bars, making it a great place to live for those who enjoy a night out on the town.
The property market in Canggu is highly competitive and extremely profitable, affecting the pricing. The houses for sale are expensive, and it is recommended for buyers with a smaller budget to either buy off-plan or choose neighbouring areas.
Pererenan is a village located next to Canggu. It is known for its beautiful beach, trendy cafes, and new coworking area. Pererenan is tranquil and secluded, making it the perfect place to relax and get away from it all, and yet it is just a few minutes’ drives from Canggu’s active life.

3. WEST COAST
Right after Pererenan the endless beach of the West Coast starts and extends to the Gilimanuk port connecting Bali and Java. Seseh and Cemagi are the closest beaches already discovered and well-loved by tourists and expats. The further we go north, the more untouched beaches and landscapes we see. The West coast is stunning, lush, and comfortable for a remote low-key lifestyle. It also has some significant surf breaks!
Seminyak is one of the oldest tourism hubs on the island, and today, it is one of the most expensive markets for houses for sale in Bali. It’s known for its stylish restaurants, trendy shops, and beautiful beaches. If you’re looking for a luxurious and vibrant lifestyle, Seminyak is the place for you.

Kerobokan is a residential area bordering Denpasar, Canggu and Seminyak. It doesn’t have direct access to the beach, yet you can find houses for sale in this part of Bali with rice paddies views or beautiful designs and landscaped gardens.
The area is popular among families as there are a few international schools here, including French and Australian schools. Expats on a budget also love this location for the housing choice, prices, and access to local markets.
Yet there are a few luxury villas here for those who prefer a relaxed lifestyle far from the hectic Canggu buzz. Harcourts Bali curates more than 50+ houses for sale in Kerobokan.
Jimbaran is a prime area for houses for sale in Bali, from simple studios to extravagant cliff-top mansions. It is located on the Bukit Peninsula, which offers some of the best views over the ocean and panoramic views of the island.

Bingin and the Uluwatu cliff have lately become more buzzing with cliff-top bars, clubs, resorts, and activities.
Nusa Dua and Sanur are beautiful suburbs with long sandy beaches and 5-star resorts. It is perfect for those who want to enjoy the sun and the sea, escape the city life’s hustle and bustle, and enjoy a smaller village’s slower pace.
It is one of the top choices for families and retirees. This area is about a 40-min drive from Canggu.
Plenty of houses are for sale in Sanur and Nusa Dua, so you’re sure to find one that’s perfect for you. Yet we have to admit, the property prices in this area are high due to the premium development of the suburb and proximity to the beaches and facilities.
Amed and Candidasa are becoming increasingly popular for hilltop houses for sale. This area is known for its beautiful beaches and relaxed atmosphere. Amed is also an excellent location for diving and snorkelling, making it attractive for tourists. If you are looking for a quiet and peaceful place to live, Amed is worth considering.

There are plenty of things to do in Ubud, from shopping and dining to exploring the countryside. And despite the fact it’s such a popular destination, houses for sale are still relatively affordable.
The closest to Bali islands – Nusa Lembongan with Nusa Ceningan bonded together and Nusa Penida – are little lush waterfront paradises with great snorkelling, diving and plenty of unspoiled natural beauties to see around the islands, including the famous T Rex-shaped rocks in Penida.
The demand in these property markets is relatively high, yet you can still find magnificent houses for sale with ocean views. The waters are pristine here and the white-sanded beaches are very welcoming. If you surf, Nusa Lembongan has some spots for advanced surfers too!
