Sotheby’s Releases Turks and Caicos Real Estate Market Report
Turks & Caicos Real Estate continues to soar as 2022 is shaping up to be another strong year with buyer demand remaining solid in a fast-paced market with a lot of moving targets. Competition for desired properties is high with many listing agents managing multiple offers and off market properties selling without coming to market. Buyers know what they want, and sales agents are digging deep to find an appropriate investment or vacation home for their clients and customers.
Construction throughout Providenciales, even without large scale vertical development, at this time, is at an all-time high with new homes coming out of the ground in all community areas and stretching to the out islands. The biggest issue for builders and developers is trying to contain ever increasing construction costs hit hard by supply chain and inflationary issues.
In the forefront with new construction is the implementation of renewable energy which seems to be a top selling feature for new developments on island. Notable developers are on board with Renu Energy TCI, a renewable energy company that has also experience tremendous growth over the past three years with the installation of solar panels, tesla power walls and electric vehicles and accessories.
Solar Power and Renewable Energy on TCI
Fortis TCI has also been at work transforming the TCI energy landscape with the introduction of solar power programs to take advantage of this ample resource, C.O.R.E (Customer Owned Renewable Energy) and U.O.R.E. (Utility Owned Renewable Energy), with the latter program contracting several companies. The EV and charging station pilot project which was introduced in 2018 has started to catch on with several electric cars in use throughout and charging stations popping up across the island.
Leading the way in energy efficiency and various forms of renewable energy in Turks & Caicos was Green Revolution which was established in 2011. Since their formation the company has completed many projects both residential and commercial in scale, throughout the region. These projects are saving residents of the Caribbean hundreds of thousands of dollars each year.
With sustainability on peoples’ minds and in the news, we are proud that our country has embraced the importance of these initiatives and developed a plan for our beautiful by nature islands. The recent signing of the TCI Climate Change Charter which took place on Earth Day this past Friday, April 22nd during the 1st Annual Climate Change Summit entitled “Only One Earth – Invest In Our Planet”, the private and public sectors came together to take action with this roadmap as a guide to help protect and safeguard our environmental assets.
