Carribbean Property Investment For Sale
“The perfect location for those wanting to marry an investment and holiday purchase”
Mention the Caribbean and it evokes idyllic images of white sand beaches, turquoise seas and luxurious 5 star hotels. The holiday destination of choice for the rich and famous, many of the islands in the Caribbean have become tax free havens with a price tag to match. However with the rapid expansion of tourism and the improvement of the infrastructure on some of the less elite islands the Caribbean has become a thriving investment market offering high rental returns based on the region’s year round season.
Comprising over 100 islands there are plenty of investment opportunities to be found with property tax low on most of the islands and an affordable cost of living, although travel costs can be high.
Key islands to consider as investment ‘hot spots’ are:
Antigua & Barbuda - With the reputation as having a beach for every day of the year, Antigua is blessed with low crime rates, a laid back lifestyle and outstanding golf and yachting facilities on the west coast.
Barbados - Offers some of the region’s most famous beaches and a vibrant party scene. As the island that first established tourism to The Caribbean, it is extremely popular particularly with both British investors and holidaymakers but as a result prices here are high and some areas are over developed.
Grenada - The original spice island is one of the most exciting investment markets in The Caribbean with numerous new hotel developments underway to meet the rapid growth in tourism thanks to the direct flights from the UK, USA and Continental Europe.
St Lucia - One of the most modern and efficient islands, St Lucia has been voted the world’s most beautiful island and is considerably cheaper than neighbouring Barbados.
Trinidad & Tobago – At the most southerly tip of the Caribbean these two islands are the only ones outside the hurricane belt and are dramatically diverse. Trinidad has been described as a Tiger Economy with a wealth of natural resources that has turned it into a predominantly industrial island whilst Tobago matches the beauty of many of the other islands and boasts rich coral reefs.
St Kitts & Nevis – Relatively under developed compared to other Caribbean islands, St Kitts has a youthful property market but things are changing fast with big name developers moving into this haven of world renowned preserved eco systems including lava formations, tropical forests and seaside lagoons.
