If you are thinking about finding out more about overseas property investments, you would do well to put St Lucia at the top of your list. Famed for its beautiful beaches and lush vegetation, St Lucia has long been a popular destination for celebrities and holidaymakers alike.
And more recently, the Telegraph has named it one of the safest places for overseas property investments. The relaxed lifestyle of St Lucia, the crystal clear waters, and its endless miles of beaches bring in over 350,000 sun-worshippers each and every year. Five star tourism is booming on the island making it the perfect choice if you are looking for an overseas property investment.
Telegraph journalist Graham Norwood says "This Caribbean island has long been popular with Britons. There are rugged mountains, rainforests and coral reefs. It’s like Barbados, but with lower prices."
Another great thing about investing in St Lucia is that it’s easily accessible from the UK, the rest of Europe and also the US. If you are looking for an overseas property investment that you can rent out to holidaymakers, a property in St Lucia will keep your bank account ticking over pretty much all year round. There is no end to the amount of holidaymakers seeking accommodation and many are looking for all the mod-cons without being tied to a hotel timetable.
St Lucia also enjoys a fantastic climate and the locals are extremely friendly. Crime rates are low and the wonderful coastline is as good as any other tropical location. It’s little wonder why more and more people are choosing St Lucia for overseas property investment and holidays each year. The island has so much to offer!
The Telegraph also advises that investors conduct in-depth research before taking the plunge in St Lucia. There are more popular locations on the island so it’s important that you choose a property that enjoys a good position. High-end properties are going to net the most profits as most people looking to stay in St Lucia have cash to spend.
"The best tactic is still to purchase more expensive homes in prime locations. This means you will see the best the country has to offer, and your investment stands a better chance of securing good returns."
