Cambodia has residential options in multiple cities, towns, islands and villages. Browse through our residential property listings below.
For investors looking for residential property for sale in Cambodia comes in many forms:
For many foreigners who are not familiar with the market, historical trends, or current supply and demand, it can be a frustrating experience.
A residential area is a specific area dominated by housing structures. Housing spaces may be single or family-owned, multi-used, or commercial. A residential area has a smaller floor area than businesses or commercial spaces.
Residential development is a real estate designed for residential use. It is land divided into lots where they build houses. An example of this type of real estate is a subdivision or ‘Borey’.
The use of land determines classification. A residential property can be a single plot of land occupied by a single structure or multiple units such as a condominium building.
Cambodia has residential options in multiple cities, towns, islands and villages.
Prices naturally vary depending on location, square meterage, the standard of furnishings and amenities in the area. Anywhere near commercial areas or a CBD are considerably more expensive than small towns in the provinces.
Phnom Penh has property to buy or rent in all parts of the city.
Here are some of the most popular Districts.
Siem Reap is famous for being home to South East Asia most historical world heritage site – Angkor Wat.
Over the years, many tourists have returned to stay and live in Siem Reap due to its beauty and tranquility.
The most popular areas for property for sale or rent in Siem Reap are:
Sihanoukville City is a rapidly growing city, port and economic hub.
Due to the economic and real estate boom in the Kingdom, we have seen the real estate market diversify.
Unlike Vietnam and Thailand, the port area in Sihanoukville doesn’t suffer from floods or typhoons.
The province of Preah Sihanouk consists of 4 districts.
Mittapheap is where a lot of development has taken place in recent years and has been the most in-demand area from developers and therefore buyers too, resulting in a variety of different residential options for sale or rent in Sihanoukville.
Kampot Town is booming, and Lux have our second office here. So we have more residential options than our competitors in the area.
What Types of Properties Are Available in and Around Kampot?
In the 2010s, people bought a lot of land around Kampot, and many villas and houses have been built.
Kampot has not seen condominiums or boreys yet, but there’s a fair chance we will start to see them in the next five years.
Due to the amount of expansion Kampot City has been going through, this trend continues today, and we now have many listings of all kinds of residential properties to offer.
The market is diverse, with Khmer style houses, villas and mansions available, and the same can be said for more modern Western-style accommodation.
Most modern villas have enough space for a garage, front paved area, surrounding gardens and even a swimming pool in some cases.
The scenic aspect of Kampot is breathtaking, with the elephant mountains on one side and Bokor mountain on the other.
As the area is expanding, anything is possible.
The most condensed area of businesses, expats, bars, and restaurants is concentrated along the Kampong Bay River. Around this area, we have seen much construction of the last four to five years, and the centre itself is now home to flourishing businesses of all kinds.
For many blocks back from the river, there is a lot of accommodation with varied prices, old Khmer style fused with apartments that have been modernised. There is a good choice of residential accommodation here; however, it is a busy touristy area in the high season.
Already in areas such as:
Many districts have already seen many tracts of land have villas, homes, and mansions built on them.
For those that want a little taste of community spirit, the aptly named ‘International Village‘ would be a good choice. Called ‘International Village’, a decade or so ago, the first community of expats started to live, and now we see more and more residential properties being added to the area. On the doorstep of Bokor mountain, it’s a beautiful area to live.
Cambodia’s once-forgotten Riviera is back to its stunning former glory. Although still way more relaxing and peaceful than its neighbouring Kampot and Sihanoukville down the road, Kep has properties and land for sale and rent.
Kep is a more family orientated place for tourists, visitors and residents.
Recently many of the old villas left crumbling after the Vietnam war have been restored in recent years. Villas for sale in Kep are a prime feature. And we do see some come on the market, but they are sold quickly.
It is a stunning quaint beachside town, perfect for retirees or people looking to own a business and live. With tourism increasing in the coming years, buying a villa to live in would be a beautiful life and a very sensible investment.
Without a doubt, Cambodia has some of the only islands left in the Asia Basin relatively undeveloped. However, there are just enough commercial properties established alongside residential to make one of these your home.
In Ream, Ream Bay, for example, is a white sandy beach with lush forestation behind it, but about to become a $16 billion project turning it into Ream City.
Here we will have the following available:
Ream is an example of what can happen in this region’s vibrant and fast-moving real estate market.
Imagine investing in property in Phuket or Koh Samui 30-40 years ago; what a fantastic investment that would have been. Well, the following island’s are today’s opportunities to do the same:
The Long Bay Project, a prime example, is ideal for people looking to buy a villa or house in Koh Kong.
Koh Kong already offers land for rent and sale, opportunities to buy or rent new and old villas, houses, shophouses and more.
In Koh Rong, large portions of the island for 99-years leases has been released by the government. Beachfront villas and housing are a fantastic investment. The opportunities are endless with residential land for sale in Koh Rong.
Lux has listed beachfront land for sale in Koh Rong Samloem, and we also have beachfront resorts for sale and rent in Koh Rong Salmoen; residential options are becoming available as people are building in these areas.
Lux have massive tracts of beachfront land for sale in Koh Sdach (King’s Island), so the residential property will follow.
Lux has a strong presence in these island areas, where we have a range of residential options to suit individuals, families and businesspeople of all kinds. And for those looking at a residential property as an investment, here is where you will see sizeable ROI (Return on Investment).
