7 Tips for Better Real Estate Purchasing Experience in Bali

A little island in Indonesia, Bali is a genuinely unique destination. Anyone visiting this island will fall in love with its white sandy beaches, warm year-round weather, glamorous hotels, a diverse Balinese-Hindu culture, and well-balanced mix of western lifestyle in forms of cafes, restaurants, boutiques, and beach clubs. These qualities also make the island a tempting investment and lifestyle option for many expats. People who want to wake up with sunny sky and end the day with gorgeous sunsets, which is why real estate in Bali is always on demand.

Why Expats are Buying Real Estate in Bali

Purchasing a beach property can be done for enjoyment, profit, or a combination of the two. Whatever motivates you to make this purchase, consider these seven suggestions to help you make a wise decision. But before you make life-changing investment in Bali real estate, here are some tips to help you purchase better. 

Take Your Time

Don’t buy any property in Bali that you see for the first time too soon. We know this seems unusual. Instead, rent for about six months. Living on an island isn’t for everyone. People move to an island hoping to fall in love, but the odds are 50/50. Surfing every afternoon, tropical cocktail, and beach hopping are all part of the dream. You might get a few days of that, but then eventually you’ll have to look for work.

See What You Can Buy

Pre-qualify for a loan to determine how much you can afford. Everyone wants an ocean view, but if it’s out of your price range, you can be disappointed. Decide what is most important to you. Bali has a lot of beach areas, and each with its own characteristics. Sometimes securing a great deal of beach house in secluded area means having it 20 miles away from the nearest convenience shop. Decide what is more important you: convenience or privacy?

You’ll almost certainly require a local bank account before you can make a significant buy. You must have one in Bali before you may move any money from your bank account in your original country. You must be extremely organized while shifting money.

Always Keep Your Expectations in Check. 

Any expat’s life in Bali will always be a compromise because the the lifestyle would be so different. Buying a new building is frequently the solution for many expats, but forget about fitting a king-size bed. Also, what are deemed necessities in your country may be uncommon in this country. A nice kitchen with a clean refrigerator, convection oven, and work surfaces at a reasonable height are Western luxury that cost a lot of money.

A Thorough Inspection of the Bali Real Estate

Hire a professional house inspector with beach property experience. Inspections are not all made equal. A specialized inspection may be recommended depending on the circumstances of the property.

While a home is on the Bali real estate market, it may still be rented. If that’s the case, now is the time to “test before you buy.” While you make yourself at home for a few days, there’s no better way to check out the views, the proximity to eateries and attractions, or even the amount of street noise. What are your favorite aspects of the property? Would it make a nice tropical Bali villa? What would you make different? Is this a destination you’d want to visit again and again?
