Summary: Learn how to best prepare yourself for the impending growth that Grand Cayman is set to experience.

Grand Cayman is in the midst of some serious expansion efforts. What began as new developments on Seven Mile Island has grown into an airport expansion, with multiple multi-million dollar projects planned. Some of these will be completed as soon as 2018, so home owners who take advantage of property management in Cayman Islands are in a unique position to grow along with the island.

Tourism Fuels Rentals

Tourism, especially as related to the diving and cruise ship industries, is picking up. As the government shifts its focus toward environmental concerns to preserve the natural beauty of the island, the city has followed with green initiatives aimed at consuming less water and power. In many ways, Grand Cayman is fast becoming a futuristic city run on clean energy.

It’s no secret that any rental income earned on the island is tax free. You’ll have to pay a stamp duty at the time of the sale, and again if your rental is long term, but your savings is substantial over time. Residential management merely helps you keep the property livable, while helping to market your property for new tenants.

Tourists are attracted this place, which offers a blending of island life with modern convenience. Rather than hotels, which are already struggling to accommodate the influx of visitors, these visitors are finding great values in Cayman Islands property leasing for shorter terms. If a visitor can stay for two weeks to a month, it makes more sense to stay in a place more reminiscent of home.

Three Historical Detours to Take When Visiting New York City

September 2, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

By Phin Upham

The city of New York has been built over several times in its lifetime. Advances in architecture, industry and finance have shaped the growth of the city over the years. Especially with regards to architecture. New York famously hosted a race to see who could build the world’s tallest building, which inspired innovation and boosted employment all throughout the 1920s. If you happen to find yourself in the Big Apple, here are some detours you should consider taking.

Take a Tour of Trade Routes

During the early days of New York’s history, it was inhabited by Natives belonging to the Lenape tribe. There were several groups in the area, and this led to a thriving fur trade that ran up and down the various straits and rivers in the area. Lafayette Street, Park Row and St. Nicholas Avenue were all once trade routes used by these Natives, and later by the Dutch.

Eerie Canal

The Eerie canal was, at one point, a major linchpin in the distribution efforts of East coast businesses. This thriving trade route fell out of favor when it failed to keep up with the expanding size of commercial barges. It’s still used for tourism purposes, and history buffs frequently refer to the passenger lists of yesteryear to track down relatives that passed through the city during their immigration to other parts of the country.

New York’s Tallest Buildings

Be sure to visit the Chrysler and Empire State buildings, not just to say you’ve been there. These sites were both in fierce competition to become the world’s tallest. Chrysler beat out the Woolworth building, after the building owner unveiled his secret weapon: a spiked metal tip for his building.
