Barbados Real Estate
Barbados real estate offers a rewarding investment on one of the most beautiful and enchanting Caribbean islands. Foreigners are welcome to purchase real estate on the island and many do so in order to own a vacation home, villa or condominium near one of the many white sand beaches or overlooking a renowned golf course.
The island offers a complete package for foreign business owners who are able to setup a low tax offshore business company, invest in quality real estate and enjoy life’s rewards as they take time to relax in the Caribbean’s welcoming turquoise waters.
Barbados is widely regarded as the Gem of the Caribbean. The island offers pristine beaches and crystal clear seas where visitors can get away from it all and relax. However, with an international airport and an advanced telecommunications system, the world remains at your fingertips. The country is regarded as a Developed Nation by the United Nations with a first class infrastructure, public and private healthcare services as well as educational institutions including a University. All these factors mean that there is no better place to live, work and play!
Great Locations Available
The number one mantra in real estate is “Location, Location, Location” and this is one of the reasons that Barbados real estate has excelled. The island offers it all. Buyers can find beach front properties ranging from large estates and villas, to luxurious condominiums overlooking the sea. The views are breathtaking and the beach is right on your doorstep.
If your true love is golfing, then there are numerous properties overlooking world class golf courses designed by the likes of Tom Fazio, Robert Trent Jones Jr., Rees Jones and Landmark Golf Developers. One of Barbados’ courses has even been recognized as the “Best Golf Development Caribbean 2010” by Americas Residential Property Awards in association with Bloomberg Television. Even the legendary Tiger Woods chose a Barbados golf course for his wedding during the height of his success. If you love golf, then you may have just found a new home in the Caribbean.
If you prefer a rustic country estate, there are many old and historical plantation houses located in the countryside surrounded by acres of land available for sale. There is also the rugged, windswept East Coast where the powerful Atlantic Ocean meets the lush, untouched vegetation that is protected from further development. Existing houses, approved lots and old estates are still available for purchase from existing owners. In the east, potential buyers have a chance to escape from society altogether and fall asleep in a hammock with the sound of the waves crashing in the background.
A Safe Investment
Barbados real estate offers a very safe investment. Due to the high demand for “a piece of the rock” and the island’s limited size, it has never experienced a real estate bubble or crash as is the case in other regions around the world. Boom or bust, real estate in Barbados has always remained a solid investment.
In addition, the island offers a stable economic, political and social environment where property rights are protected. Investors are able to buy and sell property, with the freedom to move their money on and off the island as necessary.
Non-residents and companies are eligible to receive Barbados mortgages from the island’s banks, offering a convenient source of finance and opening up new investment possibilities.
Real Estate Agents
Real estate agents play an important role when purchasing a property and they become even more important when purchasing in a foreign country. Knowledgeable agents can help you find your dream home and navigate the tax and legal considerations involved in acquiring property and selling it.
