Our goal is to help ensure that your Roatan Real Estate transaction is as trouble-free as possible and that you completely understand each step, commitment that is required along the way.
Although we don’t give legal advice, we do have long-term working relationships with all the very best legal firms on the island that do and based on your precise needs; we’re happy to recommend one to you. Before you make any commitments to anyone, we’d like to outline the (most commonly asked) top considerations facing Foreign Investors.
The Seller is obligated to pay Capital Gains Tax (currently 4%) on the increase of value of the property from the time you purchased it to the time of sale to the Honduran Government.
In addition, the seller is required to pay the Real Estate Sales Commission. This covers both the Buyer’s Agent and the Seller’s Agent.
We are the oldest, most trusted firm on the island today, and every year since 1991, we rank as the top performer when you measure results.
No other Real Estate Broker on the island can make that statement. Other firms may claim they sell more than us, but they refer to international sales, NOT JUST ROATAN.
Other firms even claim they have more experience than us, but they’re just playing games with numbers.
Many properties end up sitting “on the market” for extended periods of time, in fact, a lot longer than they should.Many
We believe these firms are just lazy and their unwillingness to invest in any type REAL marketing ends up costing you (the seller) both time and money.
We market your property the way that the overwhelming majority of potential buyers are most likely to pay attention to it, utilizing the very latest state-of-the-art digital technologies. And while we’re not going to tell you all our secrets (our competitors do regularly visit our website), we will give you an overview.
If you search the web, you’ll see that we make the first page of Google pretty much all the time and have been there since we started.
You’ll also notice that we DO NOT include all the Roatan MLS Listings on our website; instead we focus on promoting ONLY our own listings. This gives your property an enormous advantage.
We look to find the hidden value in every property and market that unique value.
Yes, we do collect opted-in names for our email list, BUT we offer the ability to unsubscribe easily, AND this is a secondary marketing tactic for us. We don’t rely on it to generate spectacular results.
We know how to find people that are interested in buying property at this exact moment in time, how to get in front of them when they are thinking about it, and how to convert their interest into actions.
The proof is that we’ve been here the longest, we are the most trusted, and we are always at the top of the list of performers for Roatan Real Estate since 1991.
We’re strategically located on the main road in West End, the very Heart of Roatan, the business hub, and the most visited area on the island by tourists. No one else can claim a location as strategic as ours is.
Our windows feature ONLY our client’s listings.
We invest 100% of our money marketing our client’s listings.
born, raised, and living a lifetime on the island means we’ve established many marketing alliances with resorts, attractions, taxi drivers, etc.
Ask anyone, and you’ll find more people who know us by name than any of the others.
This networking means we attract more people to our listings, increasing the probability of selling your property faster.
We carefully listen to every potential buyer’s comments regarding your property and relay this feedback back to you.
We constantly make recommendations that we believe will help sell your property, and we’re not too bashful to deliver bad news when necessary.
No one has been on the island longer than we have.
We know all the ups and downs, the ins and outs, and unique characteristics of every neighborhood. We know what current market conditions will yield for pricing, and we’ll make realistic recommendations that will sell your property.
We won’t quote an optimistically high selling price that sounds really good just to rope you in, only to find that no one is willing to pay that high price.
No Surprises Means:
We work hard to ensure you completely understand the process (buying or selling) and we offer our opinions, recommendations, and suggestions on how to maximize your benefit in working with us.
Sometimes this means that we talk a buyer out of considering a property because they’re not seeing the complete picture.
Sometimes this means we don’t provide a falsely high valuation number that a seller wants to hear.
Too Many People Focus On The Number Of Showings To Rate The Effectiveness Of A Realtor.
Instead, we ensure that every potential is well-screened / qualified prior to wasting your time or ours.
