Antigua Barbuda Property Buyer's Guide explains the legal fees, legal procedures, real estate purchase taxes and mortgage procedure.


One of the first considerations to make about buying a property in Antigua is 'What is the property's primary purpose?' i.e. residential, tourism rental or a commercial business property.

There are a variety of locations across Antigua Barbuda, so you are sure to find the one, that matches your dream.

Residential

the main expatriate populations on Antigua Barbuda are based in the South East of the island around English Harbour and Falmouth.

In the South West in and around Jolly Harbour.

In the East at Half Moon Bay and Browns Bay.

In the North in Hodges Bay and Cedar Valley and surrounding areas.

As with buying a property anywhere, there is excellent choice in price, style of building and proximity to services.

Location, location, location is the key to your enjoyment and usually to the value of a resale.

Rentals

can be found throughout Antigua Barbuda from studios, apartments to five bedroom executive villas with all the toys and wonderful ocean views, the key consideration is what is your budget - once you know that you should be able to find a property to suit you.

Commercial properties

there are many business opportunities in Antigua for Antiguan locals, ex-patriots and foreign investors, particularly where jobs are created for local people.

The majority of retail outlets have their primary in the busy capital of St. John's, but there are further developments around the island, particularly in Jolly Harbour and English Harbour.
