When Opportunity Knocks...Live the Life!
Ever catch yourself daydreaming about living in the Caribbean? Or owning a second home, condo or rental property on an island in the sun? How about an investment property? A beachside restaurant, perhaps? Now may be the most opportune time in decades to "just say yes!" Or at least to investigate possibilities and give some earnest consideration to your dreams.
Interest rates are at historic lows, hovering around 4 percent for a 30-year mortgage. This, in turn, results in appreciably lower monthly payments than we've seen in a long time. Although properties on St. Croix may hold their value better than those in many areas, prices have dropped and there are bargains to be had. (That's where a professional real estate agency, like Coldwell Banker Land-de Wilde Realty, is essential.) What's more, sellers are more willing than ever to consider offers below the asking price. At present, sale prices average roughly 20 percent lower than the listing price. Not the case a few years back.
St. Croix may be just the island for you. The largest and most rural of the three U.S. Virgin Islands, St. Croix remains a relatively undiscovered treasure with waterfront properties far less than those in the United States. Known as the Big Island, it is 28 miles long and 7 miles at its widest point. We boast both the courtesy and friendliness characteristic of a small town and the aplomb that comes with an international population and Danish heritage. Our islanders and snowbirds are a happy lot. Social venues are varied and abundant, and almost everyone welcomes a newcomer. It doesn't take long to find your niche.
Our Economic Development Commission encourages qualifying businesses to base their operations here in return for enticing tax benefits. When such businesses headquarter on the island, they tap the St. Croix work force, providing employment for residents.
You could be at home here! Coldwell Banker Land-de Wilde Realty and its team of enthusiastic and professional agents would like to help get you situated.
