What is the process for purchasing a private island like Roberts Cay?

Purchasing a private island involves several steps, including a thorough inspection of the property, obtaining necessary legal clearances, arranging financing, and possibly hiring a local real estate agent or attorney to navigate the complexities of local property laws and regulations.

Are there any restrictions on foreigners owning property in the Bahamas or Grand Cayman?

While foreigners can generally own property in both the Bahamas and Grand Cayman, there may be certain regulations and approvals required. In the Bahamas, foreign buyers must register their purchase with the Investments Board, while in Grand Cayman, there are no restrictions on foreign ownership. Still, buyers should consult a local lawyer to understand all legal requirements.

How do property taxes and maintenance costs differ between these luxury properties?

Property taxes and maintenance costs can vary significantly based on the location and type of property. For example, the Bahamas typically has low property tax rates but higher maintenance costs for private islands due to their remote nature. In contrast, properties in Grand Cayman might have higher property taxes but potentially lower maintenance costs due to more readily available services and infrastructure.

Buyers should conduct detailed research and budget for ongoing costs when considering these luxury investments.
