ANTIGUA REAL ESTATE...

Why not really make yourselves at home in Antigua? Purchasing, renting or even building a second home here is as popular as ever, and there’s an increasingly wide choice of villas, apartments and real estate options to consider... 

The reasons behind the property boom are obvious. Antigua offers an enviable lifestyle of sun, sea and sand. The economy is driven by tourism and our 100,000 permanent residents are an interesting mix of people from all over the world and other Caribbean islands. Another added incentive for many purchasers is that Antiguan passports may be obtained through the Citizenship Investment Programme (CIP) introduced on qualified properties.

It’s advisable to do some groundwork before you get here, of course. Nowadays most property buyers are internet savvy and arrive here having already narrowed down their options. They’ll probably have already contacted a professional estate agent affiliated to ABRA, the Antigua Barbuda Association of Realtors. These companies have access to a wide variety of pre-owned homes and villas and will advise you on the latest market conditions. Location is vital, of course, and will have a great impact on your own enjoyment as well as on your property’s re-sale value. 

Popular areas include English Harbour in the south and Jolly Harbour in the west. Both have friendly communities and first-class infrastructures. You may prefer to be near our capital St. John's, prime residential areas in the northwest including Dickenson Bay, Crosbies and Paradise View. But those of you wanting to get away from it all should probably head southeast and settle in the scenic coastal areas of Brown's Bay and Nonsuch Bay. 

If you prefer to purchase a piece of land and custom-build your own home, there are many island-based architects, builders and contractors who’ll be delighted to help you with the design and construction. We also got plenty of stores able to provide you with most of the furniture you require to turn your dream house into your dream home...
