Dominica Real Estate – a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to purchase a little piece of unspoiled paradise
Dominica real estate is the stuff of tropical dreams during harsh northern winters. It is often referred to as the island of untouched beauty, because much of the island’s 291-square-mile area is sparsely inhabited and untouched by man. That, of course, will not last as the tourist trade has already begun to reach the verdant shores of this small island in the Lesser Antilles.
For those who have the means to buy here now, the investment will certainly pay off for years to come. Many, of course, will be interested in purchasing Dominica with a view to preserving the island’s natural wonder. Others, of course, will be motivated to invest in Dominica for sale in the hope of developing the uninhabited regions to create the next great Caribbean tourist hotspot. It is to be hoped, for the sake of the people and the beauty of this small island, that those who choose to follow the latter path will undertake their development with a view to preserving the natural beauty of the country.
Some consider this island to be the northernmost of the Windward Islands, while others argue that it is the southernmost of the Leeward archipelago. Any way you look at it, Dominica is ideally located and has several more well-known and exotic tropical neighbors including: Martinique, Montserrat, Antigua, Saint Lucia and more. The terrain is covered in lush tropical jungle and is home to many endangered species as well as some other exotic geographic features including more than 360 rivers and a vast area of soft sandy beaches in the northeastern part of the country. It also has a large national park and any Dominica real estate that borders on that nature reserve will likely become more valuable in years to come.
Unlike the more developed countries of the Caribbean, Dominica seems to be on the verge of finding itself. Those lucky enough to be able to invest in a bit of Dominica today will be investing in some of the last remaining natural beauties in the heart of the sun-loving tropics. While some development is likely to occur, if done with relish and care for the fragile ecosystems, many envision this small island becoming an environmental model for the area, showing that man and nature can coexist peacefully on a small island in a brilliant blue sea.
