Caribbean real estate summit says market is booming

first_imgAt the first installment of the Caribbean Real Estate and Investment Summit, held on April 5 in the heart of downtown Boca Raton, it was made clear that the Caribbean real estate market is currently at a peak. The summit was held by the robust Boca Raton based real estate brokerage The Agency. The event brought together stakeholders who focus on the Caribbean region, including brokers, developers, investors and attorneys. The success of this first event, the organizers said, was a testament to the enormous interest around real estate in the region. Representatives from several Caribbean countries were present, including from the Dominican Republic, The Bahamas, Turks and Caicos, Saint Lucia and Cayman Islands. Main panel discussion at the conference were “Regional Market Trends” and “Selling the Caribbean”. Topics covered included a marketwide look at regional trends, and the nuts and bolts of purchasing real estate in various Caribbean destinations. Discussions underscored the Caribbean region as a booming market, fueled by citizenship-by-investment fueled development. Citizenship-by-investment enables the acquisition of citizenship via an exceptional economic contribution to a country. Such programs exist in Caribbean countries such as Antigua, St. Kitts, Dominica and Saint Lucia. According to Ian Hurdle, the owner of The Agency offices in Turks and Caicos, “It was great to meet with so many individuals in the industry from across the Caribbean. I think the number of attendees from so many different countries shows that the real estate market is in an incredibly healthy position across the region.”last_img read more

2019 NBA Draft lottery: Knicks, Suns, Cavs close in on best odds for top pick

first_imgUnder the new draft lottery procedures in place for the first time this year, the bottom three teams will each have a 14 percent chance of landing the top draft pick at the May 14 lottery.Previously, the team with the worst record had a 25 percent chance of being selected for the pick. Finishing second to last would give that team a 19.9 percent chance and finishing third to last would give a team a 15.6 percent chance. The change is to prevent teams from tanking at the end of the season, so the integrity of the game is preserved, though some have said it’s still not enough to prevent teams from tanking, since there is still incentive to lose.Rounding out the top five entering Tuesday are the Bulls (21-56), who would have a 12.5 percent chance of getting the No. 1 pick, and the Hawks (28-49), who would have a 10.5 percent chance.The majority of mock drafts have Duke star Zion Williamson going first in this year’s draft, which will be held June 20. Related News Team USA reportedly interested in bringing Zion Williamson to 2019 FIBA World Cup The race for the top pick for this year’s NBA draft is getting interesting.As the regular season winds down, the Knicks (14-62), the Suns (17-60) and the Cavaliers (19-58) have the three worst records in the league entering Tuesday’s games. last_img read more
