Market Overview

  • Indonesia’s real estate market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 17.63% during the forecast period. The demand for housing market in Indonesia is expected to be driven by the country’s favorable demographic composition, rising urbanization, increasing per capita income of people and a significant young population in the country emerging as first-time home buyers in near to middle term. Meanwhile, more developers are focusing on building affordable apartments in the mid-low segment to target genuine homebuyers. This has also intensified the competition amongst such products and is expected to continue in the near term.
  • The Indonesian government also introduced One Million Houses (OMH) programme with a goal of constructing at least 1million units per year, and nearly 1.13million houses have already been built in 2018 as part of efforts to reduce the country’s current housing backlog.  The one million housing programme intends to address a lack of investment in the property market and to reduce the 7.6million shortfall in housing to 5.4million by this year.
  • The demand for residential property, both in landed houses and vertical housing, is expected to increase further after the government’s infrastructure projects, i.e. mass rapid transit (MRT), light rail transit (LRT), TOD (transit-oriented development) in commuter line stations, and new toll roads that are likely to be completed in 2019.

Key Market Trends

Jakarta emerging as a prime rental market

As per market estimates, the average price for a 120 square-metre property in Jakarta is USD 2,692 per square metre which is way cheaper than the prime locations of Malaysia, Cambodia and the Philippines and Thailand.

Increasing disposable incomes and migration of Indonesians to Jakarta in search of better employment, is making Jakarta an attractive rental market for both buyers and investors.

Rising residential property sales in the country

As per estimates the residential property sales in Indonesia increased by nearly 20.15% y-o-y in the first half of 2018, sharply up from a decline of 34.53% in 2017. Small properties led the demand surge followed by medium houses and big houses. In order to meet the property demand, the Indonesian government has adopted several measures such as decreasing the key interest rates, giving tax incentives to Indonesian REITs, eased restrictions on individual foreign ownership and increased loan-to-value ratios.

The government has also increased the price threshold for luxury property taxes to encourage home buying in Indonesia. The 20% tax will now be applied only to any purchase of a landed property or apartment worth at least 30 billion rupiah (USD 2.10 million). Some of the major apartment projects which were completed in 2018 were Ciputra International (San Francisco Tower) by Ciputra Developers, Lavie Suits by Wilsor Group and Nine Residences by Lippo Group.
