Courtesy of Frederick Peters, President Warburg Realty My friends ask me, why don’t you take August off? They say, isn’t real estate dead in August? The answer is, it depends on what you want to do. Opportunities exist for both buyers and sellers, although they must be carefully assessed. August is not a great time to launch most listings, but it can offer an opportunity to pick one up in a slightly less frantic manner than may prevail in September.

Kiss The Sky, Part Two

Courtesy of Frederick Peters, President of Warburg Realty New York City has nine million inhabitants, and it is growing all the time. I wrote last week about the enormous pressure on the city's current housing stock and how the most practical solution is to scale up, adding apartments by increasing density throughout the boroughs. The challenge of course is to do this while retaining neighborhood character and the iconic buildings and areas which make New York unique.

Grace Bay Condos ... Like Living in a Screensaver

Courtesy of Bernadette Hunt of Turks and Caicos Property, Ltd. The opening of Club Med on Providenciales in 1984 was really the first step in introducing Grace Bay to the world. With an incredible 12 miles of white sand beach flanked by crystal clear waters it embodies the perfect sun holiday. Over the past 18 years in the islands (the last 13 spent selling real estate) one comment I hear more than any other is that Grace Bay is sublime. The international press has caught on and this little stretch of land is now at, or near the top, of practically every list of “best beaches” - most recently CNN rated it the top beach this side of the Atlantic (June 13: World’s 100 Best Beaches).

Ibiza is now thought to have the most expensive restaurant in the world, 1,500 euros per head for 20 courses at Sublimotion at the Hard Rock Hotel, while multi-Michelin-starred chefs, brothers Ferran and Albert Adria of elBulli fame, have just announced that they’re opening a new restaurant in Ibiza in 2015.”
