Living in Roatan Honduras

Do you ever want to just slow down life and take the time to enjoy each moment?

Sometimes it feels like life rushes by and suddenly we’re looking back wondering where the years went. There are bills to pay and errands to run; the to do list never ends. Happiness and contentment always seem to be just out of reach.

But that isn’t how life is everywhere. Living in Roatan Honduras means slowing down, appreciating nature, and embracing fun. Expats in Roatan take advantage of the stunning tropical beauty surrounding them to enjoy small moments in every single day. Life in Roatan isn’t about keeping up with the Joneses (nor the Kardashians). Life in Roatan is about happiness.

This is why I love living in Roatan Honduras…

Paradise is waiting for you Roatan

Paradise is waiting for you on Roatan

Life in Roatan is fun

Life anywhere can be as fun as you make it. But in Roatan, we are surrounded by people who are on vacation, enjoying every minute of their time in paradise. So you can’t blame us if we very frequently get caught up in that same excitement!

Expats in Roatan all call themselves retired, whether they’re still working or not. We retired from corporate life, from cubicle boredom, from suits and high heels. We opted for a life filled with fun – in a big way.

Living in Roatan means taking advantage of every opportunity for a new adventure; life in Roatan means saying, “Yes.”

We bask in the sunshine and lounge on the beach; we hop on a dive boat for the chance to see a whale shark and we go out with friends for a day-long fishing trip; we toast to the good life at sunset and we dance the night away under a sprawling sky of stars. Living in Roatan is pure, child-like fun.

Life in Roatan is filled with natural wonder

Living in paradise doesn’t mean you get used to seeing stunning sunsets and forget how beautiful they truly are. No, life in Roatan makes you appreciate natural beauty even more!

We pause whatever we’re doing to marvel as the sun dips into the sea. We still gasp at the sight of a stingray gracefully flying underwater beneath our docks. We marvel at the dive-bombing pelicans seeking a shallow afternoon snack in the sea. Natural beauty surrounds us and yet we never tire of it. Living in Roatan means appreciating those moments every single day.

Life in Roatan is simple

Do you remember when you used to know your neighbors and you actually spent time with them and interacted on a regular basis? Those days seem far away for a world in which time is money and we certainly don’t make an income gossiping over our ever-higher fences.

But living in Roatan means neighbors are friends and community is the key to everything.

Life in Roatan isn’t a competition to see who has the latest technology or the new fancy car. We don’t care who has a TV – many of us don’t even bother! Living in Roatan isn’t about working more to earn more to spend more to still feel like you’re falling behind. Living in Roatan is about simplicity and remembering what’s truly important in life.

Living in Roatan is about fun. It’s about nature. It’s about reassessing our lives and making sure to appreciate every moment. Life in Roatan is truly paradise. We hope you’ll join us!

Roatan Real Estate Report 2015


Photography by Devon Stephens Roatan MLS #15-536

Roatan saw incredible change in 2015, which gives us reason to believe that 2016 will be a huge year for the island. In terms of real estate, 2015 was the first rapid growth year since before the worldwide recession and resulting recovery. Home sales saw a huge increase, and construction continues, offering even more inventory throughout the island.

But it’s not just the real estate market in 2015 that has us all optimistic about next year. Roatan saw many changes this year that have helped to increase the island’s popularity among tourists. Let’s take a look at what happened in 2015 that has us all buzzing.

Roatan had a continued high number of cruise ships visiting the island in 2015, and has scheduled its highest number of ships and visitors ever for 2016. With Carnival Corporation and Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines invested in two different ports on the island, there is no indication that this interest will be slowing down any time soon.

Roatan’s international airport added yet another direct international flight through IBC Airways in December 2015 and also started talks with Southwest Airlines for possible service beginning in 2016. Roatan has been put on the map by many more people in the travel industry, which is a great indicator for continued growth.

Roatan was named the #3 island in the world in the 2015 TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards. Being voted #3 in the entire world is a huge honor for Roatan. But then again, those of us who live here already knew how great it was!

West Bay, Roatan, was named one of the best up-and-coming beachfront retirement communities by International Living in their December 2015 magazine. International Living also devoted much more coverage to Roatan as a desirable retirement destination throughout the year, also bringing a lot of attention to the number of business opportunities the island offers in their Incomes Abroad monthly newsletter.

As Roatan continues to grow in popularity as one of the Caribbean’s leading destinations, property prices will rise in response. The island has seen steady, slow growth with the introduction of two cruise ship ports and the international airport bringing visitors to the island conveniently and quickly.

But we are obviously on the brink of something big. While we have seen increasing interest for years, it was in 2015 that we all noticed just how popular Roatan has become on the international travel scene.

We are already seeing increased bookings for vacationers in 2016 from previous years’ numbers. Businesses all over the island are seeing an increase in correspondence with upcoming visitors.

Roatan is on the map

There will not be a better time to buy property in Roatan. Now is the final moment where popularity and prices are merging, before prices start going up and staying up

Don’t believe me? Take a look at all the media Roatan has received just this year, coupled with more airlines showing interest in flying to the island and more cruise ships visiting the island, and you’ll see for yourself. Roatan real estate in 2016 will be off the charts – don’t miss your opportunity for a fantastic deal!

2 Things That Can Go Wrong with A Real Estate Sale on Roatan.

Here are the 2 most common mistakes which can lead to many things going wrong in a sale on Roatan.

1) Not getting a realistic price. In your Roatan real estate sale or investment you want to know if you are getting a fair deal. It is very common on the island for buyers and sellers not asking his or her representative to do a CMA or comparable market analysis. If your real estate specialist is part of the Roatan Realtor Association he/she will have access to the Rotan MLS (Multiple Listing Service) of all the properties sold recently or in previous years. They can compare the property to other properties with similarities such as the size of land, square feet in a home or condo, quality of construction, the area/ location and whether it is a beach front or ocean view. Without doing a CMA you may pay too much for your investment or will not sell your property in a timely manner.

2) Following Island time. Remember here is not there! The island moves at an unrushed pace. People love the word ´´mañana´´ (tomorrow). In order to get some things done here you want to make sure you hire a Broker and Agent who will be on top of things.

Buying real estate on Roatan is fairly simple IF you have a specialist real estate agent who knows all of the bumps.You need a Realtor who can take you through the entire process: from assisting you in finding your piece of Roatan to negotiating a final purchase price and to generating your title documents through a highly qualified attorney.
