Bali’s Real Estate Demand is Directly Proportional to Bali’s Tourist Demand.

Lawrence speaking at Hong Kong
Real estate seminar 10 years ago
Some 17 years ago after living in Bali for five years and beginning to write a column for the weekly Bali Sun newspaper on real estate I coined the phrase “Bali’s real estate demand is directly proportional to Bali’s tourist demand”.

It was obvious to me that the more tourists that came to Bali the more demand there was for Bali real estate. It was a simple equation.
As couples toured Bali they fell in love it with it as I had. They soon concluded that they had to have a piece of paradise.

Since then tourist demand has consistently increased exponentially. Last year alone we had a 17% increase in tourist arrivals.

Fourth Most Sought After Designation in the World:

Bali is on everybody’s bucket list as indicted in the fact that the readers of the largest online travel website, TripAdvisor, chose it as the fourth most sought after destination in the world earlier this year. They chose Paris, London, Rome and then Bali.

“Fourth most sought after destination in the world”

Bali was chosen as the # 1 Best Designation in Asia
Bali Ranked #I
Best Asian Designation in 2018 by Tripadvisor

Just last month Bali was chosen as the second-best Island in the world by the same organization.

“Second best Island in the world”

Let’s face it if you haven’t been to Bali you haven’t traveled.

So, we can be certain that soon Bali’s tourist demand will continue to increase exponentially therefore Bali real estate demand should increase exponentially as well.

Four types of tourists that buy Bali Real Estate:

There are basically four types of tourists that buy Bali real estate.

(1) Occasional Visitor:

First, the one that we have catered to for the last 14 years, which is the wealthy traveller who has come to Bali year after year and finally decides that they want to purchase something. They only had time to enjoy their villa several weeks of the year and rented it out the rest the time for positive cash flow.

Clients who have purchased in this category include the former Southeast Asia director of General Electric and Ritz-Carlton. Both still own their villas 12 years later. They are satisfied with the returns which are substantially higher than bank time deposits while at the same time allowing them the opportunity to come down and enjoy their villa anytime they wish.

They could also exchange their villa with beautiful homes around the world. Therefore, saving themselves tens of thousands of dollars in hotel rates for the them and their family each year.

Let’s not forget the bragging rights of saying that you own a villa in Bali.

A three bedroom, four bath 600 m² villa with private swimming pool a 12 minute walk to a six kilometer white sand beach is available for as low as $158,000 for these individuals. 

Three bedroom, with private swimming pool  available for as low as $158,000

You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out that if your earning $25-$30,000 a year income from tourist rentals your investment return can be returned very quickly to allow you to enjoy your villa for free.

(2) Strictly Investor

The second type of individual is one who strictly wants to invest and earn investment returns of 10% to 20% per year.

When you consider you’re only receiving 2% on a bank deposit it makes common sense to own a villa in Bali which not only can be rented out for positive cash flow but enjoyed whenever you want.

(3) Those who want to live their life time dream:

Many of the tourists who have come to Bali have had a lifetime dream of living on or close to the ocean. In most places in the world prices are far out of reach for many.

$588,000. See more details at:
In Bali a tourist can purchase a huge magnificent 450 m² villa just a few metres from the beach with an uninstructed rice paddy, volcano, and especially Oceanview for as little as $588,000 with 80 years of leases.

A massive four-bedroom five bathroom with maids’ quarters, private carport and a large 14 mtr swimming pool can be had for as little as $588,000.

(4) Full or Part Time Retiree:

There is a new villa and homebuyer in Bali that I’ve been waiting for all these years. 

Within 6 ½ hour flight from Bali there are approximately 70 million baby boomers, born between 1946 and 1964, who are seeking to retire in an area where it’s 70% cheaper than their homes essence places such as Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand.

They seek clean-air, friendly people, great year-round weather, low crime and close proximately to their relatives.

Bali fits the bill for this huge potential of baby boomers retiring full-time or part-time in Bali.

Bali Luxury Retirement Villas:

We were the pioneers in Bali Luxury Investment Villas 17 years ago.

Now we are pioneering Bali Luxury Retirement Villas to meet the needs of this huge increase in demand from a sector of the population that has the money to buy and wants to move here now.
