How is Corona Virus affecting Bali?


Asia was hit with the virus earlier than Europe and it seems to be showing several signs of steps being taken to return to normalcy ahead of the drastic changes underway in the colder regions of Europe. Nobody can really accurately predict when air travel and handshakes will be deemed OK again, so an element of patience is required for sure. So then, what it really means for the property market is still unclear.

Smart property investment has always been a play between patience and fortitude and the present time is no different. Opportunities will come up that need to be seriously considered and we stand ready to work with you. We are foreseeing that the Leasehold market in most of Bali's touristic areas will be soft in the coming months as both foreign and domestic investors will be keen to see how the prices fluctuate. As of this writing our market is outperforming the gold market - by a substantial margin. Property is a bit of a slower 'play' than commodities, and if your investment is for personal use and rental income combined, you've got to consider that even though you cannot monetize your 3 week holiday in Bali now it still apprecaites in value as the fear from Corona Virus dissipiates.

Luckily, in Indonesia, the number of confirmed cases is still low (117 reported cases as of March 15 2020). Indonesia’s hot and humid tropical climate surely has something to do with it. Virologists say the virus spreads more easily in cold temperatures as sunlight and heat give a halt to the growth of the virus and limits longevity. A pathology professor at the University of Hong Kong, Dr, John Nicholls, stated there are 3 things that the coronavirus doesn’t like: sunlight, temperature and humidity. Bali is humid and hot all year round with an average of 27-degrees. The climate here on the island together with the measures Indonesia has taken and a lot of attention to proper hygiene, make Bali seem like a good place to be during the slowdown. Beach, tropical heat, open-air..... there are worse places to be and wait it out!
