Real Estate Tips
The Value of Market Research When Buying/Selling Real Estate

Given the impact that BREXIT and the election of a new U.S. president will have on foreign exchange rates and the global economy, the principle of effective purchasing power has become more evident. For vendors, the ability to maximize their potential gains from the sale of real estate has been negatively affected (in some cases for the short-medium term) and buyers now have the opportunity to get more value for their money.

When investing in real estate that comes with a six or seven-figure plus price tag, it would be prudent to ensure that there’s a demand for that property. Checking the trends and current conditions of the market you’re considering before you start shopping around is also highly advisable.

If you’re investing in a metropolitan area, you’ll need to consider things like; the job market, cost of living, sales prices of comparable homes and average household income. If you’re thinking of investing in a luxury vacation rental, you’ll need to consider the demand and influx an area experiences during peak periods and year-round.

If you’re thinking of selling or investing in a luxury property,  please contact one of our seasoned Estate Agents at askus@onecaribbeanestates.com.
