St Croix Investment Property

Offering unspoiled vistas in every direction, lush terrain, and turquoise pristine waters, the St Croix real estate market in the US Virgin Islands has wisely avoided the overdevelopment so common elsewhere in the Caribbean. Here you can still enjoy a diverse yet relaxed lifestyle filled with culture and recreation. With its historic architecture, old world charm, contemporary dining and shopping, and world-class housing options, this island is an undiscovered diamond. St Croix investment properties have the potential to yield solid dividends for many different types of investors.

A summer lifestyle year-round is possible, due to the stable weather.  So it makes perfect sense to rent out your property whenever you are not using it. Vacationers and longer-term renters are always searching for fine St Croix homes for rent, and many quality property management companies offer turn-key services, leaving you only to collect a sound return on your St Croix investment.

St Croix investments can be anything from a private villa, an estate on the beach to a cliff-side condo. The is also a wide choice in terms of location. On the East End is the historic town of Christiansted, and Buck Island National Park is accessible with a quick boat trip. And on the West End, is beautiful Frederiksted with its famous pier and waterfront promenade, with landscapes ranging from stunning beaches to rainforests.

As the island develops, retailers, resort developers and other commercial interests are also increasingly turning their attention to St Croix investments. Several large companies have already set up business here, and their success is expected to attract many more.

Land development parcels

Whether you are a family hoping to custom-build your dream Caribbean home, or an investor looking to create a luxury resort, St Croix development parcels open a world of opportunity. Available land and can range from superb acreages with postcard ocean views to prime location tracts throughout the island; once you decide what you want, consult one of the top St Croix realtors for advice and guidance to the current offerings.

Consulting professionals early on is crucial because development parcels in the St Croix real estate market are not as easy to locate as they can be in other parts of the country. Additionally, the island does not follow the same community planning and subdivision layout logic as in mainland United States.

St Croix Real Estate Agents reviews

As elsewhere, all investors are advised to seek expert advice from experienced St Croix real estate agencies. Having gone through this process ourselves, we’re happy to make private recommendations based on our own experience buying properties here, and provide you 1st-hand unbiased experience of various agents and companies.  The local market has a number of special characteristics, customs and practices which every potential buyer needs to be aware of.

Despite its small size, there is a surprising-large number of St Croix real estate agents.  Some are seasoned professionals with deep experience in the local market, while others have only recently moved to the island themselves.  Many agents work as dual agents (simultaneously representing the buyer and the seller), which may create conflicts of interest which you need to be aware of.

It’s also worth noting that obtaining a mortgage here is more difficult than in the rest of the US due to the smaller number of financial institutions servicing the market. Additionally, property transactions move more slowly here, frequently taking 9-12 months to close.

For all these reasons, our advice is to do your homework and pick your St Croix real estate agents with care.  We hope you find your dream property, as we have with Villa Margarita!
