Property in Margarita
Margarita Island is proving a popular place to buy Caribbean properties at low prices and is also one of the few places in the world where a foreigner can actually own properties with little restrictions for under £40,000. Investors benefit from the islands tax free zone and the growing tourist industry. There is a huge shortage of 2 bedroom properties for rental on the island and with direct flights from the UK Margarita is proving irresistible to investors. Property in Margarita recently made the headlines when England cricket captain Michael Vaughan announced that he had bought a four bedroom Villa with a private pool in Piedra Negara in the north of the island.

“We have been taken by surprise with the response we have had in January we have seen a huge amount of enquires from interested buyers. The types of buyer is also a surprise, they are a mixture of investors and some who are looking to retire to the sun. One buyer said that he found January so depressing in the UK and calculated that he could live very well on his retirement pension in a warm hurricane free environment.’
