As buyers of any product or commodity buyers are always looking for value. Sellers are looking for the, "it features" buyers want. Some 1,500 real estate professionals were poled and a list of "Hidden Gems" was compiled to rank what adds value to homes. As I started composing this blog, I realized I could blog a series on the topic so this is the first of a few on the topic of "Hidden Gems".
I would like to address how the list below impacts value in the U.S. Virgin Islands real estate market.
At 69% - the most valued Hidden Gem # 1- An Amazing View- On the Islands of St. Thomas, and St. John, because of the hilly topography, it is difficult to find a home or condo that does not have an amazing view that includes either the Atlantic Ocean or the Caribbean Sea, it is only a matter of degree.Some properties have both an Atlantic and Caribbean water views. St. Croix has more flat land and the views may not always include water but they may have panoramic scenery. Although they have their share of water view homes and condos as well.
