Patience and Persistence Pay Off

TRE VOR MUSGROVE Managing Partner

NO. 2

Two vital skills for any realtor are patience and persistence. These tenets are even more essential when advising purchasers and sellers who are in a different country. It is with great pleasure that The Agency Turks & Caicos completed the sale of Triton Luxury Villa in Long Bay for a record-breaking $11,500,000 in Q2 2019. Patience, persistence and the power of The Agency helped secure this signature listing and later, helped guide both the seller and the buyer through the transaction process. Having celebrated this sale, we now turn our attention to another fundamental skill we as realtors must cultivate—consistency. Having launched our newest signature Long Bay Development, OneNine Longbay, as well as the exclusive listing for Upper East Side Estate in Leeward, we continue to break new ground in Turks & Caicos, representing some of its finest properties while having lots of fun along the way.

WYMARA VILLA 5109 | PROVIDENCIALES | $5,250,000 MLS #1900428


Record-Breaking Sales Q2 2019 was one for the record books. Following the sale of Triton Luxury Villa—which marked the largest since 2015—we want to congratulate our colleagues at Sotheby's on the sale of Prince’s former house in Turtle Tail. The total Turks & Caicos sales volume of $84,440,500 in Q2 is even more impressive when you consider that there were 25% fewer sales this quarter than in Q2, 2018, while both average and median sales prices continue to increase. When you dive into the statistics, it remains clear that the $750,000-$1,000,000 market remains a price point that is underrepresented, with only six recorded sales in this sector of the market.

SINGLE-FAM


MILY HOMES


Luxury is Attention To Detail, Originality, Exclusivity and Above All, Quality Single-family home sales drove the market in Q2 2019, garnering 67% of the market’s total sales volume. The luxury single-family home sector accounted for $47,660,500 in total sales volume. The Turks & Caicos luxury real estate market has been the driving force for many years and it continues to steer the market as a whole. Our beautiful beaches, proximity to the United States and Canada, and the convenience of no currency controls make visiting and purchasing in Turks & Caicos appealing to those seeking barefoot luxury only an hour-and-a-half to three hours away from home. THE AGENCY TURKS & CAICOS Q2 2019 REPORT

At the other end of the market, there remains an opportunity for affordable homes, with only 11 sales under $500,000 recorded in Q2. The public and private sector should come together to ensure that the opportunity of homeownership is spread amongst the broader community, therefore easing the pressure on the rental market.

Long Hot Summer Condominium sales slowed coming into the summer, which is not unusual. Average and median prices remain high, but the lower number of sales and lower sales volume remains indicative of continued good returns on rental income and the lack of new inventory. A hotbed of activity was reported at The Alexandra Resort, which saw six sales in Q2—the number of sales recorded in the previous 21 months combined. We expect to see condominiums follow a consistent path for the remainder of 2019, as the total number of sales is just four behind last year's total recorded sales.

Long Bay Thrives

THE AGENCY TURKS & CAICOS Q2 2019 REPORT

Long Bay continues to see increased activity as purchasers seek to snap up valuable beachfront property or homesites with beach access. Of the 27 vacant land sales recorded in Q2, 33% were recorded in Long Bay, representing 60% of the sales volume at $5,900,000. There remains significant value in Long Bay, particularly for people seeking to construct a home and an adjacent rental property. As supply continues to diminish, expect to see prices increase, particularly near the Long Bay Beach Drive beach access and along Seasage Road.

Triton Luxury Villa S O L D FOR $11, 500, 000

Ian Hurdle, managing partner of The Agency’s Turks & Caicos office, has broken yet another real estate record—this time, selling Triton Luxury Villa - 203 Long Bay Beach Drive for $11.5 million, making it Long Bay’s highest ever property sale and the highest sale on the scenic 17-mile-long island of Providenciales since 2015. Ian brokered both sides of the marquee deal for the seven-bedroom, six-bath, 12,757-square-foot home, fondly known as Triton Villa, which was also the seventhlargest recorded sale in the history of Providenciales and Ian’s second record sale in two years—he previously sold the Ron Shaw-designed Mothershouse on Provo’s Cherokee Road in 2017 for $7.625 million.

The Bahamas, the Caymans and the Turks & Caicos islands are all roaring in terms of real estate sales because of a huge increase in tourism this season,” Ian recently told the Sun Sentinel’s City & Shore magazine. Clients are flocking to the region, motivated to invest in secondary properties. “People are looking for opportunities to have a vacation home that provides a little profit.” This,Ian explains, is why branded residences associated with a hotel project—where the unit can be put into the hotel’s rental pool—are in high demand.

NO. 20

Triton Luxury Villa offers the utmost privacy, located on two lush acres along the southern end of Long Bay’s three-mile beach, two miles from any nearby hotels or commercial developments. The sale is another example of Long Bay’s growing prestige in the Turks & Caicos market. The area was largely made famous by the recent debut of the Shore Club Turks and Caicos, one of the Caribbean’s leading luxury resorts, featuring spacious bayside villas, a full-service spa and more than 100 oceanview rooms. The market in Turks & Caicos continues to hold strong. In the second quarter, the area saw $85 million in closed transactions. And Ian predicts steady, upward trends in the near future.
