Indonesia: Best Value Property in Southeast Asia
Indonesia still offers the best value in Southeast Asia because prices have been suppressed by current ownership regulations. It is not yet possible for foreigners to own condominiums on a freehold basis. These restrictions have kept prices artificially low compared to neighboring Southeast Asian countries.
Newly introduced regulations pave the way for more foreign access to the property market, boosting demand and continuing to drive up prices. Now is the time for investors to take advantage of this rewarding opportunity.
