Turks and Caicos is Ripe for Real Estate Investment; Here Are the Newest Developments

The luxury second home market has been at an all time high over the last few years with no signs of slowing. With people looking for a more permanent escape post-pandemic, many Americans are headed abroad, specifically to one Caribbean island: Turks and Caicos’ sales volume increased over 60% in 2022 according to Turks & Caicos Sotheby’s International Realty.

The benefits of buying in a destination with no restriction on foreign property ownership and no property tax go without saying, and with the added benefit of Turks and Caicos using the US Dollar and English being the official language, the islands are an easy transition for US natives. Plus, Turks and Caicos offers 350 days of sun per year, with the bonus of proximity- from New York, it is a short three-hour flight.

Here are new luxury developments to consider:

Arc at South Bank
