LankaRealEstate.com pioneered the real estate market in Sri Lanka in 2002 by being the first company of its kind to specifically attract foreign direct investment into the country via land, villa and hotel sales. Our efficient and professional approach has helped many foreigners and locals alike to buy real estate in Sri Lanka without the usual hassle of such investments.
We now have real estate agents spread throughout Sri Lanka in order to offer our buyers a comprehensive selection of land and villas for sale in the island. All the real estate agents we work with are locally based and so can offer you a wealth of information on each area, as well as local contacts you may need to help develop your project. We offer an invaluable service to hotel developers, or anyone looking to buy land or a home in Sri Lanka. Unlike a normal real estate broker, we do not list hundreds of properties but concentrate on only the best we find, checking that all deeds and particulars of each property are clear before showing you around. We work for you, the buyer, ensuring you get a fair deal. Should you find a property you like, we will then secure the best deal we can on your behalf, introduce you to and liaise with solicitors and surveyors, and follow the transaction right through to completion…and beyond. Since our humble beginnings we have grown our company to be able to offer you the best advise on all aspects of property investment in Sri Lanka within the tourism and leisure sector. We also have a team dedicated to the development and management of properties in Sri Lanka, together with a team dedicated to property investment fund management. Our villa management and rentals department manages several superb properties – mainly on the south coast in and around Galle – and also lets many private holiday rental homes all over the Sri Lanka, from cozy tea estate bungalows to palatial villas. Please do ask us for any advice on property or land in Sri Lanka. That’s what we know best!
Villa, Hotel and Land Sales
Whilst we specialize in finding villas, hotels and land for sale on the south coast near Galle where we are able to offer you the widest choice of beach villas and Galle Fort houses available in Sri Lanka, we also search out tea estates in the hills and pristine beach land on the east coast on which to build your dream home or hotel. We strive to give both our buyers and sellers the most comprehensive and professional real estate service in Sri lanka and welcome any feedback, both positive and negative, to help achieve this aim. Our new unique response form on every property details page allows you to contact directly the specific real estate agent who has viewed and researched that property and can give you detailed information regarding the property. In the unlikely event you do not get a satisfactory response within three working days from your enquiry please contact our Head Office
Holiday Villa Rentals
LankaRealEstate has a hand-picked selection of beach villas, Galle Fort houses and hill country bungalows for rent for short term holiday lets. Our criteria is based on quality and not quantity. Not only do our rental homes have to be beautifully located and designed, but they also need to be well maintained and managed by efficient and hospitable staff. We have hand picked a few gems out of all the holiday homes and villas available to offer you a small choice of the finest houses in each class. Whether it be a small romantic one bedroom beach house or a luxurious ten bedroom palatial villa, we have chosen them simply because we like them, and we hope you will too. Just email us with your desires or any holiday lets that interest you from our Villas for Rent and we will try to match your requirements to the perfect property. We will then hand you over to your own personal villa ‘host’ who will prepare and supply the house with any special requirements you may need, arrange your transport there if necessary, and generally be available to help with any particular request you may have during your stay. We look forward to seeing you soon on this magical island.
Why Many Choose Us to Buy Real Estate in Sri Lanka
“LRE found our land, handled the purchase and now manages the house for our guests. Lanka Real Estate is efficient and business like – a refreshing change in a country that is not always straightforward. LRE has taken the worry out of owning a house thousands of miles away and has enabled us to make the most of our holiday home.” Jenny Collins”
“When I first came to Sri Lanka to invest in real estate, I met with a number of local property agents. It quickly became clear that Ivan’s team at Lanka Real Estate was by far the best choice. They are knowledgeable, smart, tactical, quick-to-respond, and an all-around nice group of people. They understand the special needs of foreigners buying in a not-so-transparent and shifting market. So I no longer waste time with other agents; Lanka Real Estate handles all of my buying and selling transactions.” Jim Bowen”
