Owning a little piece in a private paradise is never a problem to well-heeled people. It may sound impractical, but there are a lot of people who are willing to spend a few bucks to have that place they can retreat to if life is getting to rough on them. And, lo and behold, they always prefer the property to be cozied up in a nice private island where stress is strictly prohibited to enter. Who wouldn’t want a villa in a picturesque island, right?
Now, before withdrawing your treasures in the bank and buying in the private islands with houses for sale, always take into consideration the price of the house. Can you afford it? Will you have extra money if you will buy it or will your savings and emergency fund be depleted? Always consider your resources first.
Second, always see to it that the island has a reliable water supply. Since water is a very necessary element in an island, make sure that you have lots of it. Because, yes, you may have the beautiful beach, but what will you do there if you will die with thirst and hunger?
Third, consider the climate of the island that you are going to buy the house. Take note that there are three types of island climates: Mediterranean where there are high temperatures but low rainfall (Bermuda, Canary, Bahamas islands), Tropical where islands are found between the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, and lastly, Temperate islands where it is cold and is usually located in Canada, Northern USA and Northern Europe.
Always bear in mind that buying a house in a private island is not a race. Take time to inspect and research as well as consider the type of island you want to go when you are stressed out.
