Investing For The Future

By Grace Lappin

Motivated by YOLO (You Only Live Once) mentality and WFH (Working From Home) opportunities, investors are looking to the Turks and Caicos Islands to fulfill both personal lifestyle investment needs and a quest for quality development sites.

The Turks and Caicos Islands or TCI for short, are a British Overseas Territory consisting of the larger Caicos Islands and smaller Turks Islands, two groups of tropical islands in the Lucayan Archipelago, part of the larger Antilles island grouping. The resident population is about 31,500, of whom 23,769 live on Providenciales in the Caicos Islands. To be sure, the Turks and Caicos Islands checks all the boxes when it comes to investing internationally, short direct flights, U.S. dollar transactions, English speaking, a safe low-crime environment, stable pro-development government, free-hold title ownership, strong land registry system protected by the British Crown and its gorgeous and uncrowded beaches

These days, the opportunity to purchase 2 acres with 255 feet of the world-famous Grace Bay Beach is as rare as a unicorn.

For the lifestyle investor looking for a No Fuss-No Muss beachfront resort property, this elegant 3 bedroom/3 bath oceanfront unit at The Somerset Resort fits the bill.

Forward thinking investors will want to venture to East Bay, South Caicos and secure 5-acre Tucker Point with its over 1100 feet of ocean-frontage and private cove.

Regardless the motivation, the Turks and Caicos Islands offer extraordinary investment opportunities.
