How to Choose the Right Neighbourhood When Moving to the Cayman Islands
Choosing the right neighbourhood in Grand Cayman can be daunting, especially if you’re not already living here or at least familiar with the Island.
Cayman’s property market is fast-moving and expensive so getting the best property for your money while making sure that the neighbourhood you select will suit your lifestyle takes knowledge and experience of the islands, which is where we come in.

Determining Your Budget

Knowing how much you have to spend on buying, renting, or even building a property helps narrow down the neighbourhoods considerably.

What’s Your Lifestyle?
Consider here what’s important to you about your current lifestyle and that of family members traveling with you. Would you like to be in a family orientated neighbourhood? Do you need to be near schools? Is your preference to be somewhere with easy access to entertainment or somewhere quieter? Do you want to minimize your commute to work, or is that not a primary concern for you if you work from home or are retired?
Hobbies and Personality?
What sports do you enjoy? Or are you more drawn to more intellectual or creative pursuits? Do you think you would enjoy owning a boat? Are you a social being, drawn to community-style pursuits, or do you prefer to be self-contained?
These are just some of the aspects we consider when working with our clients to help them find the right neighbourhood when moving to the Cayman Islands.
