A commonly asked question among property buyers is where they can find the cheapest properties.

One should bear in mind though that it’s not easy, nor very important, to discuss property prices on national levels. It’s better to focus on a handful of cities, or the capitals, places where a big part of investors tend to go.

In this article, I list the countries with the cheapest land, houses, and apartments in Southeast Asia/Asia.

Before we deep dive into, I want to mention that I haven’t taken countries such as Mongolia, North Korea, Brunei and Sri Lanka into consideration.

Investing in overseas property is one of the biggest decisions that many foreigners make.

Before you prepare for success, it’s important that you understand your overseas market, what ownership regulations that apply, if you can easily transfer your money out of the country, what taxes that apply, and more.

To give you a helping hand, I decided to write this article, where I give you my own personal reflections, backed by data.

Let’s review the 4 best countries to buy real estate in Asia.

Remark

In this article, I don’t only take yields into consideration, or target investors with a high risk appetite. I also take property taxes, land ownership regulations, capital controls and the easiness to get long term visas into my assessment.

This article is not for people who look for investment properties merely.

Market cycles, and where countries stand right now, is also of importance, of course. Many news channels and experts say that Singapore, Indonesia and India looks promising at the moment.

The Singaporean market has seen a downturn in the past years, and has started to recover. India is getting increasingly more interesting, as it grows fast economically, while Indonesia follows a similar path, with much investment in infrastructure.

4. The Philippines

The Philippines is, together with Cambodia and Vietnam, one of the fastest growing countries in Asia. With a growing middle class, favorable demographics, and an English speaking low cost workforce, more and more corporations and investors turn to this country.

Buying property overseas needs thorough consideration and planning. The rental yield is one of the most important aspects to many investors. Future outlook, capital appreciations, living standards and personal preferences are important to others.

A frequently asked question is in which countries foreign buyers can find the highest rental yields in Asia. I’ve done some vast research, but found little information, most websites pointing to one source.

Therefore, I decided to write about this topic myself. In this article, I list the countries with the highest rental yields in Asia.

Introductory remark

I’ve intentionally excluded Cambodia from this article, as I couldn’t find sufficient data and sources.

CBRE Cambodia claims that residential rental yields ‘can’ reach between 5-7% in Phnom Penh, a general number which makes it hard to compare.

Many people contact me and ask for investment advice in Asia. Not rarely, they’re interested in countries like Indonesia and Korea. Sure, Indonesia may have potentials over the long run, but ownership regulations are still not favorable to foreigners.

Korea doesn’t grow much compared to many other countries in the region, unless you plan to stay there for personal reasons, I’d look elsewhere.

One of my favorite countries is undoubtedly Vietnam. I see a lot of potentials in Vietnam, even in the long run. In this article, I present 6 reasons why Vietnam’s property market is becoming increasingly interesting.

1. Eased ownership regulations since 2015

However, with the new Law on Residential Housing (LRH) introduced in 2015, it’s become remarkably easier to buy property in Vietnam. Prior to that, people were eagerly standing on the sidelines, waiting for the market to open up.
