The Roatan real estate market has seen a positive growth trend since the global housing crisis of the last decade. As the market on the island mirrors the market back in the U.S., we have enjoyed considerable growth over the last few years. But that’s not the only reason to invest in Roatan.
Investing in Roatan is a decision for your future. Knowing what the rest of the Caribbean is like today, it’s easy to see where Roatan can be in a few decades. Our isle is considered to be “behind” our neighbors in the region. Roatan is what the other islands used to look like – before overdevelopment and zealous tourism.
Roatan has enjoyed slow and steady growth. This has allowed infrastructure to keep pace with our growing population and has prevented depletion of our precious resources.
Many islands experience regular power outages as a general rule. Roatan is lucky to enjoy a very steady power supply with infrequent outages.
On top of that, Roatan’s tourism market has grown slowly and steadily, allowing the industry to maintain proper oversight to ensure protection of our natural resources while still growing to support more and more tourists every year.
Why Invest in Roatan
Invest in Roatan because you know there is incredible potential here. We can look at our neighboring Caribbean islands and see where we might be in decades to come. Ideally, we will continue to grow at this steady pace so we continue to protect our resources and build our infrastructure simultaneously.
