While there is never a bad time to own a Bali villa if you plan on using it year round, investors need to be cautious. Tourist arrivals to the region along with supply will dictate demand for villa rentals and determines if your investment is profitable or not.
If you are considering a Bali villa purchase, now is as good of a time as any. Tourist arrivals to the island continue to increase annually with more than five million visitors spending time in Bali last year, according to statistics from the Bali Government Tourism Office.
And while tourists are arriving in record numbers, the amount of villas available full-time for short-term rental in Bali remains relatively low. Research from Villa-Finder.com shows there are only 3000 villas on the short-term rental market.
