Land for Sale

Homes

Many people dream of owning a property in the Caribbean. While many are happy to plump down their deposits for pre-owned homes or choose from a selection of plans proposed by a developer, there are those who have an entirely different set of plans in their heads. “The Dream Home”.

No developer understands better than you do on how you wish to live in your corner of Caribbean Paradise. The only answer is to build your own Dream Home, and for that you need the Dream Home Site..

First you must find the ideal spot. A villa on the beach, a house high on a hill benefitting from the cool mountain breezes, the choice is yours. Here are a few points to consider as you search for that perfect piece of land on which to build your Caribbean Dream Home.

  1. Get to know the island on which you would like to build. Visit often. Once you find that plot of land which you believe best suits your plans, visit it at different times of the day.
  2. Beach property is nice, but also the most expensive and remember that in St Kitts and Nevis, all beaches are public.
  3. Look for the breeze. Find out locally what the wind direction is. You will want to position your house where there is breeze and shade.
  4. Find out all the details of the plot that interests you. Are there any restrictive covenants on the land ? If undeveloped, how close are connections to utilities ? Other projects nearby ?
  5. Do your financial homework. What fees are connected with the real estate transaction ? Transfer taxes, stamp duty, legal fees. Factor in insurance costs, connections to utilities etc.
  6. Get professional advice before buying Real Estate in the Caribbean. Don’t go it alone, seek the advice of a professional real estate agent and a lawyer, particularly when buying land. You must be certain the seller has title to the land they are selling.
  7. Get practical building advice from people who have” been there and done that”. Use the internet for links to excellent websites on building codes, solar energy products, hurricane proofing and information on architects and builders.
