Apartments for sale in Medan

Today, the cost of apartments in Medan is comparable to the price of housing in some of the foreign metropolises. At the same time, the real estate market in Indonesia is one of the most promising investment directions. Many people choose a country with a warm tropical climate as a place for permanent residence, work, and business.

Medan is the largest city on Sumatra Island and is the administrative centre of the province of North Sumatra. It has two airports and a seaport. Unlike other Indonesian big cities, it is more calm and authentic. There are many beautiful architectural monuments, a beach, and perfectly developed urban infrastructure. The city has a university, several hospitals, shopping centres, schools, and temples. The main profit North Sumatra receives from agriculture. Traditionally, tobacco, tea, coffee, and rubber trees are grown here.

Not only Indonesians but also foreigners can buy flats in Medan. In recent years, the country’s government has been actively engaged in attracting foreign investment. Recently, foreigners have been allowed to buy apartments in Indonesia in private ownership. This requires the fulfilment of two basic conditions:

  1. The purchased property must be located in a special economic zone (free trade zone, free economic or industrial zones).
  2. The value of the property in Indonesia must not be less than a certain amount. Different price thresholds are set for different regions of the country. For Medan and its provinces located in North Sumatra, the minimum purchase amount for an apartment is $65,000.

If the property is not within the authorised purchase zone, a foreigner may acquire it for long-term use, but the price threshold must also be respected. The most common period of use for a flat in Medan for foreigners is between 20 and 45 years, and can be extended for an additional fee. The first extension period is usually specified in the contract.
