A recent survey by Bank Indonesia revealed that residential property prices in Indonesia decreased by 2.2 percent while property sales climbed to 4.5 percent from last year. Despite this decrease, prices of residential properties are expected to start rising, although at a slower rate. Economists are puzzled by this dip in prices for residential property. As the fourth most populated country in the world, the housing demand in Indonesia is getting stronger. One probable cause is the unpredictable inflation rate of Indonesia which tends to outpace the economic growth of the country. In fact, local publications like the popular Rumah Magazine, Majalah Properti and Laporan Rumah Dijual are closely watching this phenomenon.
“One way to guard against inflation is to invest in real estate,” said Handy Chang, Marcomm manager of Rumah123.com, Indonesia’s number 1 and most established Property Portal. “The current economy is really conducive for getting Indonesian real estate at a bargain. People have this misconception that it’s hard to find a good property to buy. That was true. But now, Rumah123.com has made it a lot easier for people to find the house of their dreams.”
