Sri Lanka – Island of Dreams

Year-round tropical sunshine, a laid-back approach to life, breathtakingly beautiful landscapes and really great value for money is all on offer on this stunning island

Ivan Robinson is director at Lanka Real Estate. He says that in the past local buyers were very scarce, but recently that has all changed as international travel has been so limited, “They have suddenly and dramatically made an entrance into the high end of the market taking advantage of financial conditions and confident in the knowledge that international buyers will return.” He goes on to point out that the most active current buyers are high net worth Sri Lankan company owners and executives, and local celebrities from the world of sports and entertainment.

Frank de Vries, Director of Pearl Sri Lanka Real Estate Company, is very mindful that recent global events have had a big impact on the economy, and mean that currently it’s definitely a buyer’s market. “Now, if you are a local or foreigner, you have a choice of many properties, an enormous variety of properties for sale. Plus the fact that there is about a 25% reduction on prices at the moment, it is now definitely the best time to buy – it is the country of opportunities.”
