Bali has always been at the top of the list which is the target of investors to open new businesses and invest their capital in the property business.

The property business that develops in Bali is influenced by various factors, including the label of Bali as a world-class tourist destination that attracts many tourists. Among the regencies and cities in Bali, Badung Regency is the most prime location, considering the number of tourism destinations that are always busy with tourists.

Meanwhile, for condotel, it is estimated that it will reach 62 percent growth by the end of 2016. The supply that will be built later is 3,308 units. Of the total number of new supplies, 78 percent of them are middle class condotels and 22 percent are upper class.


The property business in Semarang has been seen since the last three years. This can be seen from the increasing prices of houses for sale in Semarang, which increase every year, as well as the flourishing of house construction there. Based on Lamudi's records, the price of houses sold in Semarang currently reaches Rp. 8 million per square meter for the cheapest, while the most expensive ones are sold starting at Rp. 15 million per square meter.

Because it is the center of the capital city of Central Java, this area is also the target of house seekers from other cities. The average house seekers for sale in Semarang are interested in buying a house with a size of 90 square meters on one floor, with prices ranging from 300 million Rupiah to 500 million Rupiah.


Another area of ​​Central Java that is very suitable for investment is Solo, this can also be seen from the increase in residential prices there, the average house in Solo is sold starting from Rp. 10 million per square meter, when compared to the price of houses sold in Semarang at that price. relatively cheaper.


As a buffer zone for the capital city of Jakarta, the Bodetabek area (Bogor, Depok, Tangerang and Bekasi), is certainly the area most targeted by property investors, the increasingly limited land in the Jakarta area and the opening of road access networks make these areas increasingly sought after by buyers. Several large-scale real estate developments have already developed in these cities. Even the increase in land prices there soared by 20% to 30% every year.
