Caribbean Real Estate

St. Kitts is a neighbour to some of the most sought after locations in the Caribbean, especially St. Barthélemy (St. Barths) to the north and Antigua to the East. These islands have a reputation for glamour and relaxed luxury, which has been carefully cultivated over decades and has driven both market growth and strong long-term real-estate returns.

St. Kitts Real Estate Market
Until recently, St. Kitts retained its traditional focus on sugar cane, and so lacks the profile of its neighbours. This means it remains an unspoiled and beautiful corner of the Caribbean, with relatively inexpensive real estate. Over the past decade, the St. Kitts government has begun, in a responsible way, the transition towards a tourism economy aimed at capturing some of the economic benefits of the island’s wild beauty.

This creates the potential for St. Kitts to finally take its rightful place among the most sought after locations in the West Indies. St. Kitts property has remained vigorous throughout the global economic downturn due to:

  • Significant investment in tourism infrastructure throughout the island, creating optimism over growth in visitor numbers and future real-estate returns.
  • The Economic Citizenship Programme, which entitles anyone who invests in designated real estate, including Kittitian Hill, to become a citizen of St. Kitts and Nevis.
  • The absence of personal income, capital gains, or inheritance taxes.
  • The construction of a Fixed Base of Operations (FBO) for private aircraft with visitors en-route to St. Barths.
