If you were lucky enough when you were in college you experienced Spring Break. Where you got the chance to explore some tropical paradise. Every year college students head South to soak up some Vitamin D, but wait for your not a college student your past college age but still need of some Rest and Relaxation or maybe your thinking about where you may want to retire all year round or a place you can visit during the colder months. Spring Break for adults is way better. You have a better budget, better taste most likely in your life. Finding a home in the Caribbean is no different than owning a home somewhere else. I often tell my potential buyers to rent where you think you want to buy first, and when you know where you want to buy make sure you don’t just buy a property without visiting it in person. Make sure you take into account you might need to carry a different type of home insurance when living in the Caribbean. If you are thinking about making home improvements it often wise to speak to contractors down there to see how long work could take and cost associated with it.
Remember when you buy a home in the Caribbean you will be doing a lot more maintenance than you might do in other places, Salt, Sand, unpredictable weather and add into the fact that you have fewer resources at your fingertips all can test a budget and people patience. Some people when they buy a home in the Caribbean they develop a team to help maintain the property if you’re there all year round or only part of the year.
