Do you have property on St John you would like to sell? Here are some tips to help get your home show-ready:

Give your property some curb appeal -Scrub dirt and weather-wear off the outside of your house (including the windows), Clean up any yard debris (branches, leaves, and any dead plants), Spray down your pathways and driveway, and trim back any overgrowth on plants and trees.

Declutter – clear the clutter from kitchen and bath countertops, pack and organize your cabinets, declutter and depersonalize your living room and bedroom surfaces, and clean out and organize your closets.

Make those minor repairs – fix those faulty outlets, light fixtures, or switches. Clean dirty filters or leaking faucets.

Our experienced team at Tropical Properties will help you prepare your St. John home for a quick and easy sale. First, we will help you estimate your home’s value with a detailed analysis. Once we have an accurate idea of how much your St. John home is worth, we will create a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) for your home.


St. John Beach of the Month

There is a bit of a hike to Salt Pond Bay Beach ( remember, it’s a round trip!). Once there you’ll understand why so many make the trek. The beach is crescent-shaped with great exposure to the sun and breezes. Shallow water access makes this a great spot for swimmers. The beach is protected enough that most days there isn’t much surf. Good snorkeling and convenient access to several trails and sightseeing make it a great choice for an afternoon or day at the beach.

Zoning Requirements in the U.S. Virgin Islands

When buying land, it’s very important to make sure that you look at the zoning. Zoning in the U.S. Virgin Islands determines how large of a house you will be able to build on a specified lot. Certain special requirements apply, such as the 50-foot set back from the high tide mark for waterfront properties. We have all the details on our website. Make sure to ask us about zoning for any property that you might be considering for purchase.

St. John Trail of the Month: Ram Head Trail

Ram Head Trail is a 2.3 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Concordia, Saint John, US Virgin Islands. The trail is rated as moderate and is primarily used for hiking and trail running. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash. This trail goes through several phases, from sand beach to salt pond to cobblestone beach to winding vertical trail to an amazing view. Along the way butterflies danced around us, and Turk’s Cap cactus dotted the rugged hillside.
