The 26 independent countries and Overseas Territories of the Caribbean make up an incredible melting pot of nationalities, languages, topographies, and experiences, each unique in their own way yet, each drawn together because of their location, situated in one of the most beautiful oceans anywhere in the world.
Speak to anyone from the Caribbean and they will generally acknowledge that they live in one of the most special places on earth, whether they happen to live in the Cayman Islands or Turks and Caicos, Aruba, or Antigua.
Caribbean real estate is as diverse as its countries, their geographies, and their people. One thing is for sure, people from the US, Canada, the UK, and Europe, are increasingly drawn to the Caribbean. The Caribbean is attractive as a vacation experience and for a more permanent location in which to reside, perhaps as a retiree or with a second home that all the family can enjoy.
The Caribbean’s popularity is increasing because more people are realising its appeal, particularly when living in troubled times: its proximity and ease of getting to and from mainland America; its year-round sunshine; its glorious scenery and its laidback charm and innate culture.
The Caribbean represents a getaway like none other, a place to forget worries and escape from the stresses and strains of everyday life in a beautiful environment set against the backdrop of the incredible Caribbean Sea. It’s a place to sightsee, soak up history, get out on (or under!) the clear blue ocean, and generally immerse yourself in the rich culture and heritage of the region.
Discerning investors will seek out locations within the Caribbean that speak to their own specific requirements. Most likely, these will include safety, security, and privacy, a stable Government, a tax-neutral status, and infrastructural and service levels that meet or exceed those they are used to onshore.
A prerequisite for most will be a range of properties available that give ample choice for would-be buyers. At Cayman Islands Sotheby’s International Realty, we are perfectly positioned to offer a wide selection of properties to suit most needs.
Historically, overseas buyers have been enticed by stunning oceanfront villas with vistas far and wide out to sea. Or, luxury, often newly-built condominiums that offer upscale amenities along with unbeatable views, including private on-site gyms, concierge services, infinity pools, and more.
For those wishing to make their own stamp on the Cayman Islands, purchasing a piece of land is another option, and we have some lovely plots for sale, not only on Grand Cayman but also on its Sister Islands of Cayman Brac and Little Cayman.
Travel and tourism rates in the region are predicted to surpass those found anywhere else in the world in the short and medium-term (according to the World Travel & Tourism Council). All in all, this means excellent prospects for investment returns, should you make the leap and come and join us living in one of the most spectacular places on earth.
