Villa for sale in Bali can be an excellent investment, whether looking for a vacation home or a rental property. From white sand or black sand beaches to the lush mountains or tropical jungles – the diversity of landscapes and villas for sale in Bali is impressive. But how do you choose where and which villa to buy?
There are many factors to consider when choosing a villa for sale in Bali. The location is important, of course, but you’ll also want to consider things like the size and style of the villa, the amenities, the ownership title, and whether it’s a resale or a new build.
Harcourts Purba Bali experts have prepared some tips and the best villas selection in this article.
Several factors will affect the prices of the villas. We listed a number of them above, and now we’ll break down what to consider.
Location: The villa’s location is one of the most significant factors influencing the price. Villas in more popular tourist areas such as Seminyak, Canggu, and Ubud are more expensive than those in less popular areas. You must choose if you want to be close to the hustle and bustle, with restaurants, gyms, and shops nearby, or if you would prefer the serenity of rice paddies or less popular areas.
Size: This speaks for itself; the larger the villa, the higher the price. So you just need to decide if you want or need additional rooms for friends or family or to convert any rooms to offices or kids’ playrooms. How much space do you need?
Condition: This is very important in Bali, a tropical island. If you have found a deal that is too good to be true, the first thing to check would be the villa’s condition and building quality. Is there mould, water damage, faulty electricity, broken floorboards or rotting wood? Talk to a qualified contractor to see what can be fixed with light renovations or what will give you continuous headaches.
Amenities: Like the villa’s size, the more you want for amenities, the higher the price. Large gardens, a pool, indoor/outdoor living, garages, parking areas, storage areas, laundry services, security, and more can add more to the villa’s price. You must decide what you want and whether adding extra amenities is possible or cheaper.
Off the plan: If you are buying a new villa, you might want to consider choosing one that is off-the-plan, meaning that the design is already completed by a contractor handling all the builds and permits. You will lose any freedom for design or personalisation for this option, but you can save yourself money and time by choosing an off-the-plan, brand-new villa.
Market demand: To be honest, now is not the right time to find bargains for villas in Bali.l The demand is very high due to the population shifts after the pandemic. Much of the world realised it’s possible to work from anywhere, and thousands of digital nomads and remote workers have chosen Bali. That doesn’t mean you cannot find great villas for your budget; you just need to be diligent with your research and hire a great team of agents to help you.
Ownership type: If you are buying as a foreigner, the best way to go for the best price is leasehold, where you can find villas for 25-30 years, with extensions. Freehold villas tend to be more expensive than leasehold villas, and as a foreigner, you will also have to set up a PT PMA to purchase the property as an investment
It sounds like a dream or something you only see in the movies – owning a beachfront villa with endless sea views and opportunities to relax and soak in the island atmosphere. However, there are not a lot of villas for sale on the beach in Bali any longer. You may have to go far north or east or along the island’s west coast, far away from the tourist hotspots. Areas like Canggu, Seminyak, or Kuta rarely have affordable beachfront villas for sale. You may find your dream beachfront villa in Tabanan, Lovina, or Candidasa. You’ll certainly be more secluded, to enjoy your views in total serenity.
If it’s the absolute beachfront you want, talk to our team, who can send you options that meet your preferences. Beachfront villas are widely popular for daily and monthly rent and are usually more expensive than properties further away from the beach without a view.
Where Can You Find a Jungle or Mountain Villa For Sale in Bali?
Living in tropical forests or mountains can also be incredibly peaceful. It’s a different lifestyle than the beach and surfer life commonly associated with Bali. Closer to Ubud and further east to Sideman, you’ll find lush rainforests and endless terraces of rice paddies. In jungles, you can find a riverfront villa for sale and enjoy the sound of the raging river flow. Monkeys can even visit you in Ubud if you live remotely.
Further north, in Kintamani and Bedugal areas, the temperatures are much more relaxed, and the mountain and lake views are breathtaking. In the mountains of Bali, you can even warm up your fireplace during heavy rains or dark evenings while fireflies circle outside.
If this sounds like more of your style, ask your team about our villas for sale in Bali’s mountains or jungle areas.
