On The Market: Pick Your Perspective With Property Ownership on St. John

On The Market: Pick Your Perspective With Property Ownership on St. John 1

Good Morning!  I hope that you all had a great weekend and that your Monday is a smooth transition back into the hustle and bustle.  We frequently cover different homes and villas that are on the market, but today I have a fresh “perspective” for you regarding real estate on St. John.  There are a wide variety of properties on the market right now with incredible views, locations and accessible area to build upon.

The beauty of purchasing a parcel is that you can make your home absolutely your own as you gradually become financially ready to do so!  Which direction do you want to gaze upon from your patio?  Gas or electric stove?  Native stone work archways and retaining walls?  Lofted ceilings?  All of these things are by your own design once you have purchased a parcel on St. John.  Read on to find out about four different prospective perspectives from which to choose your view that are currently “On the Market” with 340 Real Estate

WIN Two Tickets to Paradise- Island Green Talks Reef Safe Sunscreen

WIN Two Tickets to Paradise- Island Green Talks Reef Safe Sunscreen 2

Over the past few weeks, we have been working with Island Green to promote their “Two Tickets to Paradise” fundraiser.  By buying a raffle ticket (or ten!), you not only get the opportunity to win an ALL-INCLUSIVE trip to St. John, but you are also supporting a super important organization on island.

Did you know that non-reef safe sunscreen is actually illegal in the USVI?  Our coral reefs here are in trouble and the increased amount of traffic, both on boats and beaches, this year hasn’t been helpful to their recovery.  But, by using non-toxic sun protection, you can help to preserve our marine life.  And Island Green has been at the forefront of the initiatives to protect that precious underwater world that we all enjoy so much!

I have tried my hardest to keep you all up to date on travel trends, advisories, on island pointers and increases in traffic on St. John over the past few months.  Starting in about February, it started to BOOM here with little reprieve from tourism traffic since then.  And, it does not look like its going to let up any time soon.  I read two very interesting articles this morning and wanted to share a bit of the information with you about what to expect here on St. John in the coming months.
