I have a secret to tell you about Roatan. Are you ready?
This is the best island to buy a Caribbean vacation home for a winter escape.
You might think I’m biased – which I obviously am – but at least hear me out. This isn’t merely a random claim from a REMAX Roatan real estate agent. Roatan is the best location for your Caribbean vacation home investment, and here’s why…
Roatan is the best Caribbean island for a vacation home investment
I’ve already gone over it in other blogs, but this is just a reminder: Roatan is on the map and it’s on the brink of a huge boom in tourism.
By the end of 2015, this island was called one of the best destinations to retire to, to travel to, and to live in. Roatan is making major international headlines.
Add to that our incredibly convenient direct flights from more and more international destinations, and you’ll see that this little Caribbean island is going to be huge. The tourism industry will only continue to grow here, and vacation rentals continue to grow in popularity next to traditional hotel stays.
All this to say that vacation rental property in Roatan is a sound investment. You can come and go as you please – escaping the winter for a few weeks in paradise, or opting for a fun summer getaway with the family. The rest of the year, while you’re back home working and going about your daily life, your investment will be paying for itself as a vacation rental for the endless stream of tourists visiting Roatan.
Vacation rentals are already incredibly popular on the island, but industry trends indicate that their popularity will continue to increase in years to come. Don’t be late to the game, buy your own island home in paradise, and then reap the benefits of having it pay for itself through vacation rentals.
A Caribbean vacation home is the best winter escape
It’s cold up north right now. It’s really cold up north! Living in Roatan, we get cold when the temperature goes below 75 Fahrenheit. The only white stuff on the ground here is gorgeous sand – we don’t do snow here. We don’t do shovelling, we don’t scrape our car windshields, and we don’t have to put on 15 layers of clothes just to survive outside.
Although, to be honest, when the thermometer reads in the 70s in Roatan, we grab every sweatshirt and pair of pants we own because we’re freezing!
Give yourself the option and the ability to escape the harsh winter up north for a perfect Caribbean winter instead. You won’t ever regret that ability to escape!
Now is the best time to invest in Roatan
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Roatan is on the brink of booming. We’ve watched the trends in real estate and tourism, and there is simply no denying that the increased attention Roatan has recently received will dramatically change the market on this island.
You will not find a better time to invest in Roatan than 2016. Prices will go up, land will be at a premium, and your options will soon become much more limited.
An investment in Roatan now will surely bring you huge rewards in the future.
That is, if you ever decide to sell your slice of paradise, which I highly doubt you’ll want to do! Contact me today to see some incredible vacation rental properties in Roatan.
