Indonesia’s property industry has been booming in recent years, with rising profits for property companies and soaring property prices throughout 2012. Though faced by the prolonged European debt crisis and global slowdown, Indonesia’s economy grew by 6.2%, coupled with increased foreign direct investment. The country’s positive economic climate in tandem with a growing middle-class have boosted domestic demand and increased developers’ confidence to continuously develop property projects in Indonesia. This has resulted in higher sales of most of the property industry’s sub-sectors as well as higher rental rates, which have increased by an average of 10-20% during 2012.
The strong economy and improved investors’ sentiment have significantly increased demand for office space in Jakarta’s CBD area, which have shot up office rents and occupancy rate over 95% in 2012. Meanwhile, rising domestic consumption has encouraged retailers to expand their business, leading to higher occupancy levels and rental rates of retail space. The country’s improved tourism sector has also stimulated hotel development projects, ranging from 3-star to 5-star hotels.
Blessed with gains from the favourable economic conditions, property developers performed remarkably well in 2012 with new project launches and higher revenues. The sector is expected to remain firm in 2013 due to stable economic growth, controlled inflation and rising purchasing power. However, a risk to Indonesia’s property sector is the hike in the price of subsidised fuel which will result in a higher central bank interest rate, making it more expensive for Indonesians to buy a mortgage. Nonetheless, forecasters expect property prices to increase along with occupancy rates.
