Some of you may have been wondering what is the state of the St Thomas, US Virgin Islands Real Estate Market? Is it any different than what is happening stateside?  All statistics are showing that are market is improving and on the up swing. Let's take a look at year over year statistics, 2011 to...
The US Virgin Islands? Yes we are a United States Territory, and with that designation, buying a home is just like buying a home in the states. We have deeded property here and the sales process is just like buying a home in states. Well what about financing? Yes, financing here is just like the ...
These beaches are in my back yard, my personal favorite is White Bay, Jost Van Dyke, BVI, although having Megan's 10 minutes down the road and we look into Trunk from out patio isn't too bad! :)

Well being on the water is really only a 4 month window. Here in the Virgin Islands it is a year round window. In t...
The day has come, officially we have been here for two weeks! The weather has been a mixed bag with many cloudy and muggy days with no breeze, which has been ok for unpacking. Our first few days were busy with various errands. The 4Runner which was already down here, started with no problems. Cis...
After spending a nice 4 day break from our drive across country at my father's in Cedar Point, NC where we got the dogs their health certificate and of course our yellow lab got a hot spot from swimming. Good thing we have a vet right down the street there! We spent our days with the "hoodies", t...
