Bali property prices have plummeted by up to 50 per cent with a 14-bedroom home going for as low as $540,000.

The Covid-19 pandemic has hit the property market hard and sent house prices tumbling to historic lows.

Luxury homes with resort-style pools and views of the beach are being sold for 30 to 50 per cent lower than the asking price during pre-Covid-19.

The bargains come with one catch: buyers must purchase the property sight unseen, The West Australian reported.

Indonesia Ray White real estate chief executive Johann Boyke Nurtanio said the pandemic and border closures had driven down demand and dragged down the prices with it.

‘What happened in the past year is that Indonesians are the ones actively looking and buying cheap assets as an end result of the pandemic,’ he said.

‘If someone wants to go back to Perth, they need to fly from Bali to Jakarta to Dubai to Sydney (and quarantine in Sydney), before taking the last leg from Sydney to Perth, which is impossible for anyone to take this route.’

‘Why would you buy a holiday houses in the South West, where prices have gone up 50 per cent, when you could buy a place in Bali, which has gone down 30 per cent,’ he said. 

Mr Hegney warned prospective buyers to do their research before settling on a holiday home.

He advised buyers to employ a lawyer in Australia and Indonesia and study the risks involved in carrying out transactions overseas.

Local builder Tim Gordon added the homes would also need regular maintenance because of the tropical climate.
