Buyers Market on the Caribbean Island of Roatan

If you’re looking for a buyers market on a Caribbean island, Roatan should be your first port of call. After the housing market crashed in the US, Roatan saw a steep decline in pricing that simply has not fully recovered. Where other places have seen prices rise back to their highest levels, Roatan is a buyers market with incredible deals to still be found

Don’t believe me? Just check out this article in the New York Times highlighting the value of a sprawling compound for sale here in Sandy Bay. And that’s definitely not the only deal on the island!

Buyers Market in the Caribbean

Roatan MLS 19-15 / Palmetto Bay Beach Lot 5 / Photography Alden Melendez

Roatan is primed for buyers to get the best deal for Caribbean island real estate. Those units that were selling for $1M before the housing crash are now available at half the price. We’re seeing luxury homes in focus this year, with recovery in the US and Canada encouraging residents to seek a second-home investment.

The rental market is popular in Roatan. This offers second-home investors the option to spend a few weeks on vacation here in Roatan and then earn an income renting the home to others the rest of the year. It’s a win-win when you’re ready to expand your investment portfolio.

I am a Resort and Second Home Property Specialist as well as an International Real Estate Specialist, so I know a thing or two about making the right investment here on the island. Feel free to ask me more about the current buyers market situation.

Investment Opportunity on Roatan

Roatan MLS 20-166 / Jonesville Oceanfront Home / Photography by Alden Melendez

Roatan is a Caribbean island without the high price tag you see on other Caribbean islands today. With lower-priced homes available, you can find the right investment opportunity here at a wide range of price points.

If you’re ready to invest in a second home or if you’re looking ahead at retirement overseas, the buyer’s market in Roatan is ready for you. This is the best time to grab the right deal as prices continue to slowly climb in the years since the recession.

As that NYT article shows, we have jaw-dropping luxury homes at a fraction of the cost on other Caribbean islands. But that low cost doesn’t reflect low value.

Roatan has its own international airport servicing direct flights to Atlanta, Miami, Houston, Montreal and more. We also offer eclectic dining, with a variety that reflects the international population who have chosen this tropical paradise as the perfect home.

What you won’t find here in Roatan is high-rise condos blocking your sea view. You also won’t see the standard chain restaurants taking over every street on the island.

On the contrary, we boast a wide variety of locally-owned businesses and mom-and-pop places to explore. From high-end fare to roadside pop-up grills, whatever you fancy can be found in Roatan with lower price tags and customized attention.

Island Real Estate Buyers Market

Roatan MLS 18-251 / Pristine Bay Home / Roatan Golf course

A buyers market never lasts as long as you want it to…it’s an opportunity you need to take hold of before it disappears. If you’ve been considering investing but haven’t yet taken the next steps, now is the time. You can, of course, wait and continue to research and hesitate – that’s your prerogative!

But a buyers market for island real estate is not the norm.

If you’ve been planning and hoping, get in touch now and let me show you what your best bets could be in Roatan. You might be surprised to see some extraordinary deals that you thought would be out of your reach. But you won’t know if you never take that next step.

Feel free to reach out for some customized ideas based on your plans…I’m always happy to help!

Beach Life is the Best Life

Those of us who love the island life didn’t need to read this study…we knew it already. But, guess what? Research shows that living by the water can actually reduce your stress! The beach life is the best life, and I happen to think that life in Roatan is the best way to reduce your stress.

A study completed by researchers from New Zealand and the U.S. revealed that psychological stress was reduced for those who had views of blue, more so than for those who had views of green. Part of that could be the man-made greens that people might see, like gardens or playing fields, instead of natural greens. But mostly, it’s because blues calm us.

In Roatan, we have all-natural beautiful blues and gorgeous greens everywhere you look!

Beach Life is the Best Life 


It’s hard to argue: The beach life is the best life for so many of us. Think about how relaxed you feel with your toes in the sand and your eyes on the horizon. It’s such a wonderful way to realize how small our own troubles might be when we look out onto the massive ocean at our feet. Those hues of blue are the best way to relax and to eliminate our small stresses altogether.

Beach life is the best life because of those constant reminders. If you actually live at the beach, this isn’t just a one-week reprieve from stress. Every single day, you can wake up and walk out to the water’s edge to remind yourself of how small those worries are in comparison to this great big world.

Life at the beach is filled with blues…but not the depressing kind! These blues are shades from the sky and sea that we get to enjoy on a daily basis. And even when those blues turn a little grey with stormy weather, we know it will all blow over soon and we’ll be back to our beautiful blues in no time.

Life on the Beach in Roatan

West Bay Beach Roatan

Roatan is a tropical Caribbean island boasting some of the most beautiful beaches in the region. In fact, West Bay Beach is regularly voted as one of the best beaches in all of Central America — and even the world!

But the best part about living in Roatan is that you have the opportunity to explore all the other beaches on the island, too. West Bay Beach is the most popular beach, but that also means it has the most tourists.

While we love the international appreciation for our beautiful stretch of sand on Roatan’s western tip, we also love our many other beaches that offer quiet and tranquility.

If you live in Roatan, you can actually enjoy all those other natural beauties whenever you want. Maybe you’ll live near a small little cove with your own private piece of sand. Or maybe you’ll live on the East End where tourists are fewer and locals get to enjoy the natural beauty that has made this island so beloved.

Life on the beach in Roatan means being surrounded by natural beauty, whether you’re on the most popular beach or the most isolated.

And, as we all know, the beach life is the best life. Science proved it!

Are you ready to live your best life by the beach? Contact me to check out some real estate options where you can keep your eyes on all the shades of blue Roatan has to offer. After all, we only have this one life…why be stressed?

Retirement in Roatan is a Dream Come True

It’s no secret that retirement in Roatan is a dream come true. Read any article highlighting the world’s top retirement destinations and you’re sure to find our beloved tropical island featured. What makes Roatan such a favorite among retirees? Let me count the ways…

Roatan Offers a Low Cost of Living

Of course the cost of living being low is all a matter of perspective. If you’re coming from a place with a fairly low cost of living already, then you might compare prices in Roatan and disagree with my assessment.

However, an unbiased look would be to compare Roatan with other Caribbean islands. Regardless of your home region, comparing the island of Roatan with other island options in the region will show you costs on a similar basis.

Islands require import costs and limitations on products and some services – that’s universal to islands by nature.

But Roatan certainly offers a low cost of living for a tropical Caribbean island.

Roatan Offers a Friendly Community

It’s for good reason that Roatan regularly gets hailed as an easy place to fit in. With an English-speaking local community and an extensive expat community, new arrivals find it very easy to make new friends and to create a community in Roatan.

For most potential expats, a visit to Roatan is followed by several more visits before taking the big leap. Those visits offer you the chance to get to know people and to already start making friends.

Facebook groups are also very popular for Roatan residents, offering a way for you to keep in touch with those new friends even while you’re back home making plans. You can stay in contact and continue to make more connections so that your eventual move to the island is a seamless transition.

Residency in Roatan is Easy

If you’re retiring to Roatan, you can easily acquire your residency. Retirees in Roatan simply need to prove their monthly income and then you can apply for residency and enjoy a few bonus perks, too!

If you’re coming from the US or Canada, you can visit Roatan for up to 90 days without residency. This is a great opportunity to rent and get more familiar with neighborhoods and lifestyles before jumping into real estate.

I am always happy to connect you with a reputable attorney in Roatan who can handle your residency application – it is usually best to work on your residency simultaneously with a real estate transaction if you’re new to the island.

Real Estate is Affordable in Roatan

Retirement in Roatan can be even more affordable if you invest in real estate. While renting is a viable option for many, buying real estate offers you a rent-free lifestyle with an incredibly low cost of living.

Many retirees in Roatan sell real estate back home and purchase a new retirement home in Roatan mortgage-free. That opens up so many doors for your daily cost of living. Imagine all the fun activities you could do with that extra cash!!

Retirement in Roatan is a Dream Come TrueRetirement Roatan

Don’t you agree that retirement in Roatan is a dream come true? You can actually have it all here: Beautiful beaches, tropical climate, affordable real estate, low cost of living, and a wonderful community of friends and neighbors.

If you are considering retiring overseas, I strongly recommend you consider Roatan. While I obviously have a biased opinion, you can also listen to the experts who gauge retirement destinations around the world!

Roatan offers retirees an excellent quality of life. You’ll love spending your time outdoors and breathing fresh tropical air. You’ll enjoy a slower pace of life and a focus on daily wonders, admiring vibrant tropical flowers and swimming in the turquoise seas.

No place is ever perfect and there are compromises to be made regardless of where you choose to live. But I can personally attest to life in Roatan being my dream come true…I moved my family here for a better quality of life and we have never looked back!

Are you thinking about retiring to Roatan? Feel free to reach out with questions any time, I’m always happy to help!

Do You Need a Professional Realtor in Roatan?

This question tends to pop up in Facebook groups, so I thought I’d address it here for everyone’s benefit: Do you need a professional REALTOR in Roatan? Yes. But, obviously I would say that because I am a professional REALTOR in Roatan!

While my opinion might be biased, my rationale is sound. To help you make your own decision, here is some insight into the real estate process and pitfalls in Roatan.

Buying Real Estate in Roatan

Beachfront Homesite for Sale Roatan MLS 19-15

Buying real estate in a foreign country can seem a little scary. Without being familiar with all the processes, you can’t possibly know the ins and outs. That’s where a professional comes in!

I’ve written before about the real estate process in Roatan. You can read about the buying process, terms you should know, and even the cost of construction in Roatan on my blog.

But no matter the amount of research you put into the process, you need a professional guiding you through your unique adventure. There will inevitably be questions that arise and issues that need to be handled during the transaction. You don’t want to waste your big investment by making mistakes along the way. Even seemingly small mistakes can derail your dreams.

Pitfalls of Buying Real Estate in Roatan

While I’m happy to tell you that buying real estate in Roatan has been done by plenty of foreigners without issue, there are also pitfalls to be aware of during this process.

The most common issue foreigners face when purchasing property in Roatan is the lack of a clear title.

There are, unfortunately, some horror stories from unsuspecting foreigners buying property without the counsel of a professional Roatan REALTOR. Those individuals are – rightly – upset about the transaction and often make it quite publicly known that they had an issue. This upsets those of us in the real estate industry because it makes Roatan look bad, when in reality it was simply a poor decision made by that individual to try everything solo.

If you use a professional for services back home, you should certainly use a professional overseas.

When you are unfamiliar with a place, it is always best to have someone helping and supporting you. You deserve someone in your corner to make sure you end up with the best situation.

Moving to paradise should be a celebratory occasion, not a stressful failure!

A professional REALTOR might also deal with the escrow of funds in a specific and designated account for that sole purpose.

A professional REALTOR in Roatan offers guidance and the successful navigation of the entire purchase or sale process for their clients.

Do You Need a Professional REALTOR in Roatan?

Being a professional REALTOR in Roatan is far different than being someone who sells real estate. There is an enormous difference in abilities, education, and licensing that you truly cannot ignore – especially when purchasing real estate in a foreign country.

A person who sells real estate can be a person who may know both a seller and a buyer and puts them together with an attorney and/or notary who transacts the deal. The person who connects everyone together then collects a commission for this service.

A professional REALTOR, on the other hand, with the assistance of their broker, lists property and markets property for sale, but only does so after title checks.

Due diligence by a professional realtor in Roatan might include ensuring a clear title and payment of property taxes, examining a current survey and Cadastral survey, plus possible assistance with the ZOLITUR process and payment of ZOLITUR gains taxes.

A professional REALTOR offers experience that is built upon education, training, and attention to detail that is necessary to facilitate the real estate transaction and process.

So at the end of the day, you need to ask yourself: Are you willing to risk your investment by trying to do all this alone?

Use a professional REALTOR in Roatan. I promise you won’t regret it!

Always feel free to contact me about real estate in Roatan. I’m happy to help you find the real estate opportunity you’ve been dreaming about. Come enjoy island life…it’s the good life!

We Don’t Do “Winter” in Roatan

We heard about all that crazy winter weather you’re having up north. Bomb-cyclone storms and snowfall in Tallahassee…the world has gone crazy! Of course, we don’t notice much of that nonsense while sitting here on the beach in the sun.

The Thing is, We Don’t Do “Winter” in Roatan

Winter Season in Roatan

Beach in Roatan

We spend our winters much like we spend our summers: under the palm trees, toes in the sand, sunglasses on. We pour a cold drink and enjoy the sunset. We go snorkeling and scuba diving and deep sea fishing.

In short, “winter” is just a word to us…a reminder for us expats that we never have to worry about shovelling snow or wearing so many layers that our arms stick straight out like a starfish.

We prefer our starfish gracing the sand by the coral reef.

What is This “Winter”?

Winter in Roatan

Beach front Real Estate for Sale

“Winter” is a term for another place and time – not for those of us living in the tropics.

Here, we get to enjoy the great outdoors all year long! We can sunbathe and bathe in the sea any day we choose, without hiding away in hibernation for half the year.

We don’t waste that kind of time here in Roatan.

We don’t scurry from the front door to the car door across icy pavement; we tap dance across the warm sand until our feet land happily in the calm surf.

We don’t scrape our windshields with frozen fingers; we roll the windows down and let that fresh salty air fill the car.

Is Rainy Season “Winter”?

Is Rainy Season “Winter”?

West Bay Beach

Here in Roatan, “winter” is just a word. We have rainy season, sure. But that rainy season is most welcome because it keeps our island green and pretty. We welcome the rain for our fruit trees and palm trees, for our hibiscus and our orchids growing everywhere.

Yes, even during the “winter” our island is alive and fresh and filled with color. There simply are no grey, dreary days here in the tropics. Even when the rain comes down in sheets, the island is alive with growth and color.

We don’t experience the silence of cold winter months when animals hide away and empty brittle branches eerily blow in the wind.

Winter in Roatan is filled with sound and life. Birds sing all day long and geckos call to each other by the outdoor patio lights; raindrops tap palm fronds and glide down those graceful green fingers.

We don’t do “winter” in Roatan…not the way you know it. We do winter our own way, filled with natural beauty and the sweet relief of knowing the only white stuff on the ground is soft powdery sand.

If you love northern winters, this island is not for you. But if you find yourself cursing and hating the cold winter months every year…well, you might just find Roatan to be your paradise.

Come escape the cold and join those of us who choose this tropical island lifestyle. We don’t do “winter” here in Roatan. See for yourself how easy life can be without those winter blues!

I’m happy to help you find your dream home here in warm, sunny, tropical paradise. I don’t regret my move here for one second…and I’m confident you’ll love this island, too. Get in touch and let me know your plans.
