Stats and Figures
The development is divided into six areas, or ‘basins’. The real estate marketing started in 2006, and today basins one through four are completely sold out. These properties alone generated a total value of $440million in sales.
The year-on-year increase in property value is on average between 8 and 10%. For instance, in 2006 a one-bedroom apartment sold for $275,000, and today the same place sells for $475,000. This means that whether it’s new sales or re-sales, there’s a continuous demand for property here.
Re-sales in the development alone have generated a massive $45million, and approximately 100 properties have been purchased by Eden Island homeowners as second or third properties – proof that this is a sound investment.
Furthermore, basin six, which is still under construction, is being re-designed, giving its properties more storage and floor space. Additionally, with the incorporation of two and three-bedroom units, holiday enquiries are expected to increase. This is sure to mean more rentals for seasonal visitors too.
Facts and figures don’t lie. By investing in property in Seychelles, you not only own an exclusive home in paradise, you join a prestigious community too. These tasteful and exquisite units are sure to make you want to call Eden Island home.
