Overseas Property Investment – Barbados Battles Back!

24th April 2014

Local-Beach-2Overseas Property Investment could be the next focus area for the savvy investor according to top property consultants, Savills. And we have a great new investment in Barbados Property, which is sure to tick all of the boxes.

In their most recent Spotlight on Prime Residential Retreats, Savills expressed that given the current strength of prime property markets globally and more locally, in Europe, many of the world’s wealthy property owners will be looking to expand their property portfolios into attractive locations abroad, which can serve as their winter retreat, whilst hopefully giving good rental returns and strong capital growth.

It was reported in the last week that the property price rises which have been experienced in London over the last couple of years, has spread to the surrounding counties. With good investments getting harder and harder to come by, it is no wonder that property investors are beginning to look further afield. As more and more investors are outbid on property in prime locations overseas, investment will naturally become more attractive as prices are driven upwards.

In 2013 the overseas market started to see a real pickup in transaction numbers, particularly in the favourite locations in the Caribbean such as Barbados, Grenada and the BVI’s.

The most popular type of property, which is going to be the main focus point for investors, is the resort style property. Resort style properties allow investors a completely hands-off investment, which will give them an income for years to come. When properties are professionally managed in a Resort environment it tends to preserve the value of the properties very well and lead to excellent capital growth opportunities

Following on from the above, we would like to announce that we will shortly be launching our new property investment in Barbados. An 89-unit resort style development, which will be fully managed by one of the top hotel operators throughout the Caribbean. Through expert rental management we are able to offer a guaranteed return for a period of 5 years. The guaranteed return is an excellent opportunity for investors to have some assurance of rental returns through the traditionally turbulent period of stabilization for a resort such as this. Prices will be along the same price point as our previous investments around these locations, consistently undercutting the market, keeping the investment open to a much broader range of purchasers, which will guarantee a quick sales process once again.

With the new development, we also still have availability on our previous development – Lantana Resort, Barbados, with a couple of very keenly priced resales. We have a number of units available on site that come complete with furniture packages as well as a few with brilliant sea views which normally come with price tags well into the millions!
