LUXURY CONDO/VILLA

pristine-bay-villa LUXURY CONDO/VILLA

We just spent two days looking at virtually every high end condo and villa on the island.  In my humble opinion this 2 bedroom, 2 1/5 bath stand alone villa is the best value by far.  An outstanding view, which can not be blocked, very well maintained.

Pristine Bay has every amenity you might want.  Everything from a championship golf course, many pools and restaurants, diving, white sand beach, convenient to shopping, excellent security and grounds maintenance.  This has it all.

Very modest monthly fees of only $245 and no restrictions on how long you can stay

The asking price has been reduced from $849k to $575k and the seller is anxious to cash out.

Just let me know if you would like more information.

EXCELLENT OPPORTUNITY TO BUY A PIECE OF PARADISE BEGINING AT ONLY $18,000

Many of our clients are looking at Roatan as a possible retirement destination.  If they are not ready to retire now we often suggest they can take advantage of the present low prices of vacant land and then build their dream home later.  The carrying cost for a vacant lot is minimal, often only annual taxes need to be paid.  No maintenance, repairs, insurance, etc.  We anticipate that land values will be rising much faster that constructions costs.

We are seeing some of our clients able to build a simple island home starting at about $50/square foot  for a basic structure.  Of course, it’s easy to send more.

Right now there are 260 lots available.  Many have electric road and water right to the lot.  Some have spectacular views. Some are in gated communities.

Prices begin at $18,000.  There is a 0.47 acre waterfront lot right across the bay from our home with road access.  Water, internet, cable TV electric all available. Asking price is $80,000.  Note, the photo below is not of the lot.  Let me know what you are looking for and I will check out all the listings and send you the best values.

Good Reasons to Move to Roatan

from Beach Living Magazine outlined the five top reasons to move to Roatan.

1. The number one reason given to move to Roatan is the beauty of the island. Roatan has escaped the attention that many other Caribbean islands have received and is less crowded and commercialized. Situated on the world’s second largest coral reef, the island has long drawn scores of divers and snorkelers. However, the rest of the world has been slow to catch on, so you can choose from a wide variety of secluded, white-sand beaches.

2. Roatan is affordable, making it a great place to retire. It is still a buyer’s market, with homes and property selling for a fraction of what you would pay on other Caribbean Islands.

3. Getting residency in Roatan is relatively easy. You only need to show a monthly income of $1,500 US to get a retirement visa. You can buy up to ¾ acre of land in your own name or an unlimited amount through a corporation. Property taxes are a fraction of what you would pay in Canada or the U.S., and foreign-earned income is not taxed.

4. Roatan is easy to get to. Honduras is only 2 ½ hours by plane from Houston and is served every day by several major airlines.

5. Its a good time to buy property in Roatan. Real estate in Roatan has long been tied to the economies of the U.S., where most of the large community of expats and second home owners come from. Sales are on the rise after a two-year slump. Don’t miss out on this buyer’s market.
