A recent article, Caribbean Luxury Real Estate Market Sees Hopeful Signs, references the Caribbean Insight 2016 report when stating that “major markets in the Caribbean are looking attractive again for investors.” While the report assesses only a handful of the Caribbean’s second-home destinations, we’re feeling positive about St. Croix’s market conditions as well.
We have definitely seen an uptick in residential and condo sales, as the most recent stats show.
As an overview, the residential market has been most active in the $400,000-$800,000 with well-priced inventory moving in a matter of weeks. Further, condos priced right are also seeing offers quickly after going on the market. We listed F13 Coakley Bay for $329,000 and it was under contract within 17 days. Similarly, Plot 7 Boetzburg was listed for $779,000, received an acceptable offer in 50 days, and closed in a total of 70 days for $725,000 cash.
We have seen an uptick in pricing as a result of this activity as well. All indicators are that we will have an active real estate market during our peak winter season. Call (340-778-7000) or email Team Fedeles for a market evaluation and to discuss your specific goals!
