It’s officially Fall and St. Croix has all of the usual Fall island vibes. The coffee shops have even started serving pumpkin spice!
As we observed the 5-year anniversary of Hurricane Maria, we are amazed by how far our island has come. Our infrastructure is stronger and better prepared for what may come our way. One day shy of the anniversary, we weathered Tropical Storm Fiona. While the storm was long-winded (pun intended), St. Croix came out mostly unscathed. In fact, WAPA even received praise for performance during Fiona! Our property listings all fared well in the storm, a good sign that they are built to withstand island weather.
St. Croix intersections are now full of election signs. In November, the Virgin Islands will be voting for Delegate to Congress, Governor and Lt. Governor, local Senate seats, Board of Education, and Board of Elections. View the St. Croix Sample Ballot and save these dates:
- October 9 – Last Day for Voter Registration (learn more about registering to vote)
- October 10-31 – Early Voting (learn more about early voting)
- November 8 – General Election Day
As we start to look toward next year, the 2023 USVI loan limits have been announced. If you have been considering a home or real estate investment purchase, we can help guide you through determining a budget and narrowing down the available inventory.
After a couple of quiet summer months, the Fall calendar is filling up. Halloween events are being scheduled, like Trunk or Treat at East End Marine Park, Goosebumps in the Garden and Frederiksted Halloween Spooktacular. Art Thursday and Jump Up are back. The Beauty & the Beast Triathlon is November 27 when Stephen will be defending his top ranking. And the the St. Croix Christmas Boat Parade and Crucian Christmas Festival are on!
You’ll see in the St. Croix Real Estate Market Watch below that listings are up compared to this time last year. We’d love to help add you to this positive trend if you’ve been thinking about listing your property. Call, text, or send us a note today!
